Tami Roman gives 'Basketball Wives' producers an ultimatum.
The drama continues. After their big fight aired in last week’s episode of “Basketball Wives”, Tami Roman and Meeka Claxton have been in a war of words in the media. Now Tami is throwing what may be the final blow by telling TMZ.com that if Meeka returns to the show, she will not.
Here’s a quick recap: On Monday night’s episode Tami punched Meeka in the face during their Italian ladies getaway. After the episode aired, news broke that Meeka filed a lawsuit against Tami for assault. The pair exchanged subtle blows back and forth through Twitter and interviews throughout the week, going back and forth over who’s truly to blame for their unladylike altercation. Tami claims she was merely defending herself against Meeka and her law suit has zero merit.
Either way, Tami’s feed up with Meeka and all the drama. She has promised to go to anger management next season if she’s on the show, but fans won’t get a chance to see Tami clean up her act if Meeka’s still around.
"I will NOT work with someone who is suing me, when they know what this situation is all about,” Tami tells TMZ.com. “I want to be clear, if she returns in any way, form or fashion I do not plan on participating."
Uh-oh. Tami has one of the larger fan bases among the ladies on the show, while Meeka is still a fairly new cast member with less popularity. Both have made nonstop headlines since the fight aired. This will likely be a very tough decision for the show’s producers to make. We wonder what Shaunie O’Neal, the show’s creator and producer, will have to say about this one since she’s and Tami are also very close friends.
Stay tuned. We’re certain this situation is far from over.
