'BBall Wives' Star

Tami Roman Sued for

Bailing on Hair Endorsement

"Basketball Wives" star Tami Roman signed an endorsement deal with a line of hair extensions in which she promised to feature the product on her show -- but a new lawsuit claims she not only didn't deliver on that promise ... but she featured her own hair line on the show instead!

According to a lawsuit filed earlier this month in Texas, Roman agreed to become a spokesperson for Crème De La Crème Hair. In the lawsuit, Crème says part of the deal called for Roman to "have an appearance on VH1's 'Basketball Wives' where she will discuss her hair line with the [Crème's] owners."

But according to Crème, Tami bailed on every attempt they made to coordinate their appearance on the show. 

The final straw for Crème came last month when Roman was supposed to promote Crème at a hair show in Atlanta. They claim Roman showed up as planned with a "BB Wives" film crew ... but was there promoting her OWN line of hair in competition with Crème. They also claim Tami's manager instructed the crew not to film anything Crème.

Crème is suing for damages in excess of $75,000 and they want the footage shot for "BB Wives" pulled from the show unless it's edited to feature them. 

Roman tells TMZ, "My responsibility is to my fans and supporters. I can no longer be affiliated with a company that does not uphold my standards with regards to quality business practices."

Tami Roman has been nutz since she was on the Real World back in the day. From what I see, nothing has changed - she's still crazy after all of these years.

From the picture, she looks unattractive and her hair looks like a rats nest.
BTW, what kind of moron would actually watch this show?

This woman is not relevant! Sue her and let her move on! No more news about her, or her cast-mate Evelyn Pozada. Shaunie O’ Neal should be ashamed and embarrassed for exposing America to these low class women.

I have never watched this program, I wouldn't be able to sit through a show based around a bunch of uneducated nasty hood rats. But I remember Tami from the Real World about 20 years ago. She was loud, angry, self centered and thrived on causing kaos and drama. One episode was based around a guy trying to pull Tami's towel off and somehow Tami equated that with he was trying to rape her. It looks like nothing has changed for Tami, she is still angry, loud and immature. My guess is she probably suffers from boarderline personality disorder

you just know from the face she's making above (with her lips pushed out) that she's a horrible, mean, disgusting and dimwitted individual.
