I admit it, I used to be obsessed with The Real World, so getting to meet Tami Roman was huge because she’s been in my television consciousness for a long time. Because of my old obsession, I was excited to talk to Tami in the VH1 offices recently about the differences between Basketball Wives and The Real World, which Tami says “There really is no comparison to what is happening now versus what happened on The Real World…We weren’t acting, we were sort of like lab rats in this experiment [on The Real World].”
Tami also talked about “T-shirt-gate” and why she got so upset over those “Non-Mother F’N Factor” shirts. “There’s nothing wrong with having a catchphrase…as long as it’s not at the expense of someone else,” she explained, defending her stance against Evelyn Lozada.
To see how Tami and Evelyn resolve their catchphrase differences, tune in to Basketball Wives Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
