'Basketball Wives' Purse Snatching

Between Wives

Ruins Vacay

3/3/2012 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A "Basketball Wives" vacation to Tahiti ended early for one cast member after an argument between two  girls ended with one refusing to give back the other's purse ... TMZ has learned.

According to our sources, Tami Roman and Kesha Nichols got into it last month about halfway through the trip because Tami felt Kesha was talking behind the other girls' backs. We're told the two had it out over dinner and Kesha stormed out ... leaving her purse behind. 

Our sources say Tami took the purse and held on to it, hoping Kesha would come retrieve it and they could finish their conversation. But when Kesha found out Tami had retreated back to her hotel room with the purse, we're told Kesha got hotel security involved. 

Hotel security wanted to get the local police involved, but our sources say the producers of the show talked Tami into returning the purse to Kesha before the authorities got involved.

We're told once the matter was settled, Kesha decided to hop the next plane back to the States.

Last time the girls went on vacation, it was to Italy ... and Tami punched cast member Meeka Claxton during a nightclub brawl.

Calls to reps for both girls and VH1 were not returned.

Kesha's full of sh**, and how can she have such an issue with fighting and cursing when she so desperately craves Evelyn's friendship and thats' all she does. Evelyn is the most violent castmember on the show, yet Kesha has no problem with her, and focusses on Suzie's potty mouth aswell as Kesha having a problem with Tami actions. While Evelyn throws bottles and jumps over tables and will hit people in the head with a purse. Kesha's so phony.
Team Tami
Team Kenya {just gorgeous}

I like Tammi, but I am disappointed in her. Tammi picking on Keisha is like a pitbull and yorkie fighting . I mean whats the excitement is fighting someone that you know will never fight back. I do appreciate that she doesn’t like people talking behind her back but I think she could have went to Keisha told her what she thinks off and left it like that, but she always has to pick on the helpless lol….I guess at the end of the day I still like her she makes me laugh, but if she step to me I would down fighting, Keisha needs a back bone, same with evenly always attacking Jennifer and knowing Jennifer cant fight a sh*t!! I guess Tami hasnt meet her match!

it's just me    

Kesha should have thrown Tami under a foreign jail. Who needs to be bothered with an EARTHWORM like Tami. Has that nut lost her mind. She had a nerve talking about not respecting Kesha. I could tell that Tami was afraid that her fat butt was going to be thrown in jail. The reason she didn't hit Kesha is because she knew she would be sued for that FIVE DOLLARS that she has in the bank.
