Tami Roman is an actress and mother of daughters Lyric,17, and Jazz,15. The Basketball Wives star recently sat down with Sister2Sister Magazine to discuss motherhood and her acting career.
Season 4 of Basketball Wives.
“People will see a lot if interaction between me and Evelyn this season. It’s sheer comedy! Although, I’m always going to be cool with Royce [Reed]. They [the producers] are giving you a little more of our personal lives. Royce is doing theater, Evelyn is preparing for her wedding and I am working on several ventures-helping my daughters with their music and I plan on launching my hairline on the show.”
On reality television and parenting.
“I don’t view reality TV as anything but entertainment. Certainly, I don’t use it as a teaching tool for my children, so it is never used as a frame of reference. My daughters have been raised to the best of my ability. I have beautiful, articulate, bilingual honor roll students. I am very proud of the way my kids turned out. Now to be clear, I don’t condone violence and am not proud that I’ve gotten physical with some of the ladies on “Basketball Wives.” However, I do teach my daughters to stand up for themselves and if someone gets physical with them…well, my girl Chanita Foster said it best…”You are Christian, not a punk!”
Her acting career.
“It’s coming along. I am actually doing more producing than acting right now though. My short filmThe Tombs just got a Black Reel Award nomination and has played in some of the top film festivals. I am gearing up to produce another short film and a feature that I plan on shooting in Haiti called The Promise Keeper. There is also talk of me having my own show in some capacity-either as a host or a reality show following me and my daughters, as they pursue their musical aspirations. Although, I’m taking all calls from Tyler Perry, Lee Daniels or Dick Wolfe. LOL. I need to be Madea’s crazy cousin or something.”
