'Basketball Wives' Purse Snatching

Between Wives

Ruins Vacay

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.

I don't think most reasonable people commit a larceny against someone they want to have a conversation with.

You can take a bitch out of the ghetto but you can't the ghetto out of the bitch. Unsophisticated, unrefined, trash.

Is that Tami from the Real World from like 20 years ago? She was a loud mouth no talent back then, how did this crude piece of ghetto trash get herself back on TV? The NBA is loaded with divorced babymommas, they couldn't do any better than Tami?

Tami's bio on her website is too funny! she claims she didn't follow basketball and had no idea who Kenny Anderson was? She claims she didn't follow basketball. In the Real World there was an episode where Tami's mother said Tami didn't make it through college because she was too worried about going out with basketball players. Tami always had an agenda, she wanted to marry a baller

I can't understand how people give-up significant portions of their days and nights, over and over again, to watch the broke-@$$ lives of any of these Reality-TV losers!
