Sad news has fall among media as we find out today, Basketball Wives Star Tami Roman 45, miscarried her child with Reggie Youngblood after 10 weeks. The couple first announced  their pregnancy at the after party of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. This would have been the first child between the two.

Tami released her statement to  Exclusively to E! News stating:

“I am deeply saddened that after 10.5 weeks, we suffer this loss,” We knew this would be an uphill battle. We were up against the odds. I have a prolapsed uterus and am diabetic. I battle bouts of hypoglycemia due to my diabetes and my blood pressure continually ran high. We were prayerful, we had and still have faith. We are not giving up.”

Reggie went on to add, “This is a tough time for us. It is the worst pain I’ve felt since losing my mother. I want people to understand the sensitivity of this situation. We are hurting and negative comments, don’t help.

This incident curiously leaves us wondering what type of impact it will have on the fly couples stardom. Currently, Tami and Reggie are on this season’s Marriage Bootcamp.

But despite the circumstances, it is good to hear Tami is atleast in hopeful spirits. We wish this couple nothing but the best. We’ll be sure to follow up.

[The Daily Word] Kim Kardashian’s Ass Is A Joke/ Evelyn Lozada & Jennifer Williams Kiss and Make Up/ Tami is STILL a Bully & Shaunie O’neal feels ‘Responsible’ …

Ok … Since you asked…

First Off,

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian staged a weird prank last night on Twitter. Kanye decided it would be a great idea to tweet a naked pic of Kim. Only, it wasn’t Kim.

Although it was deleted immediately, the damage had already been done as it was re tweeted millions of times and ‘Kim Kardashian’ became a trending topic.

Coincidence … we think not.

Bye Kimye.

The Reunion of the fourth season of VH1’s Basketball Wives Miami, became an episode of The Maury Show, this past week. Step on in, and see what I mean …

YAAASSSSSS!

I was pretty shocked (well maybe not completely) at the ending of the reunion special as season long enemies, Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada shared a tearful moment of embrace after admitting during a polygraph test that they missed each other’s friendship.

Awwwww.

The test also revealed that Jennifer is  a bit jealous of the relationship and upcoming wedding to Chad Ochocino.

But we think it was a different type of jealousy, a more I’m jealous that you are in a relationship and I’m not sort of thing. Because no one would ever really be jealous of Chad.

But with the ups comes the downs … and none of the cast members are lower than Tami Roman.

Ungh!

Tami, Your Still a BULLY.

And Lastly, the protaganist behind this entire franchise, Shaunie ‘Get Money’ Oneal, has turned over a new leaf.

Wait !!!!! Don’t get hype YET! Now she feels responsible for the negative events of this past season, by putting all these irrate women together.

No, Really? Your fault???? Nooooooooo …

*Files Nails*

Shaunie, I’m gonna give you a dose of your own medicine.

The Daily Word is here for you DAILY! We’re here all week ….

[The Word] Tami Roman Apologizes For Her Ratchet Behavior …

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you know my frustration with the popular reality show Basketball Wives on VH1. What was once entertaining has become embarrassing and completely ratchet! Under the brink of much scrutiny, from boycotts to rumored lost sponsorships, the cast members are now stepping up to the plate to address and apologize for their UnAmazing behavior.

One of the season’s biggest bullies, Tami Roman is among the first to admit her wrong doing, peep her recent interview with Juicy Magazine below.

In the last few weeks, TAMI ROMAN has been public enemy #1. After an episode that showed ROMAN’s not so nice side toward fellow cast member KEISHA NICHOLS, people became enraged and disturbed how a woman could simply be so, mean.

Forced off Twitter, due to much of the backlash she received for her comments and behavior, ROMAN is now linked back in to social networking site and chats with JUICY.

 

ROMAN discusses her thoughts on the use of the word “bully,” her relationship with ROYCE REED, how EVELYN operates, and exactly what her man thinks of all the drama!

 

JUICY: Since you started the show, you and Royce have been extremely close, but we barely see her this season with the other girls. What is it that makes you and Royce so cool?

 

TR: Because in all honesty from the minute I met Royce until today she’s been the same person. She was just real with me and I can always respect somebody that just comes 100%. I may not agree with everything you’re saying but if you just give me the real then I can respect that. I could tell her “Okay you know that s**t wasn’t right; I love you but that was some bulls**t.” And she can say the same to me and we can argue and curse each other out and call each other and be like “I love you are you still going to the movies?” (You know what mean?) Its that type of relationship so for me she’s the person that I’m closet too on and off the show.

 

JUICY: Twitter is a such huge vehicle for celebrities to have a voice, and express how they truly feel about something without PR and other filters getting involved. What’s your take on celebrities using Twitter to air out their issues?

 

TR: Well that’s tricky, if I have a problem with somebody I like to take it directly to the source. Now the problem presents itself when I don’t know how to get to you. So for me if you’re on Twitter and I need to say something to you I might take it to Twitter. I try not to beef like cursing people out and all that type of stuff I try not to do that. I try to keep it professional and then handle it that way. You know I’ve had my conversations on Twitter with people at one time or another yes I have. (Laughs)

 

JUICY: EVELYN and JENNIFER drama got really explosive at one point, how do you feel about their beef?

 

TR: You know the two of them are going through their situation right now. EVELYN she doesn’t operate like,’You’re forty and you’re fighting on TV!’. I can tell you Evelyn she doesn’t work that way. If you set it off with her she’s going to set it off with you.

Read More Over At Juicy …

Tami also took her talents over to the Wendy Williams Show to apologize as well as discuss just how this effects her family, namely her two daughters who were attacked on the Social Network, Twitter alongside their Mom.

 

I’m still somewhat annoyed with her behavior, but I do commend her for aknowledging her foolish and embarrassing ways and being woman enough to apologize.

Maybe now I’ll watch the Reunion. 

-Stay Fly!
