She can’t be serious.
Reports The Jasmine Brand:
Reality stars Tamia and Star Jones have recently called out reality shows like ‘Basketball Wives‘ for being “unrealistic” and spreading negative images of African American women. One of the ‘Basketball Wives’ personalities, Tami Roman, recognizes that the show leaves a negative impression, but she doesn’t think that she and her co-stars should be, personally, blamed for what the producers decide to air. During an interview with Sister 2 Sister, Tami explained why those behind-the-scenes are really to blame.
On if ‘Basketball Wives’ should be canceled because of the violence and negativity:
“I think that the opposition to call for the show to be canceled will end the employment of several African-American women who have no creative control. Why not call out the people who make the decisions about what is aired? Call out Shed Media. Call out VH1 because I will join that battle. Why call for several people to be unemployed that really have nothing to do with the creative process?”
On the cast’s positive moments not airing:
“I come with my storyline and things that I want to introduce and lo and behold what they want to show are those dramatic moments. There is more to us.”
On taking responsibility for her actions during filming:
“What they are seeing is a part of my personality. I’m not trying to take back my actions, but that’s not who I am all the time. I wasn’t happy with the situation with Meeka [Claxton] and myself. We might not ever like each other, but it didn’t have to come to that. That made me ask, ‘Tami, why are you so mean to people?’ Tami had to become real with things she hasn’t dealt with, and so I chose to deal with them this season.”
On how she feels about cast mates, like Evelyn Lozada:
“We show our flaws. We learn and develop as individuals. I can’t judge Evelyn [Lozada]. She has to work toward change. People don’t give us the benefit of the doubt or take that into consideration. Did Evelyn need to run over the table? Maybe not. Did Nia have to go over and slap Jennifer? Maybe not. I still don’t believe that warrants this big all-out movement against women who are really just showing our lives.”
I see said the blind man. And now…
