Season ten of Basketball Wives is currently airing on VH1 – however many viewers are missing fan favourite, Tami Roman.

The hit show features a group of friends who are either the wife, girlfriend or even ex wife of a popular NBA player. Since the earlier seasons of the show, the cast is starting to look very different, especially with the absence of Tami.

However, the Basketball Wives star has other things on her mind in 2022, including a new VH1 venture…

Why did Tami leave Basketball Wives?

Tami decided to leave Basketball Wives after their eighth season.

The reasoning behind this was completely fair, as she told fans that she was really struggling to be there. This was because of issues she was having with co-stars Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O’Neal.

In a discussion with Dr. Heavenly Kimes on a live YouTube chat, Tami said:

From my standpoint, I really loved and respected Shaunie a great deal. And so the last two seasons made me feel like it wasn’t any reciprocity. You gotta acknowledge that and honor it. If people don’t f*** with you like that they just don’t f*** with you. No harm, no foul. But I just realized that it wasn’t that deep for her.

Tami also commented on the fact that a line was crossed after there were remarks made surrounding her health and her miscarriages.
