'BB Wives' Star Tami Roman

Don't Pull the Show ...

MILLIONS Will Suffer

5/7/2012 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0506_tami-roman_getty"Basketball Wives" star Tami Roman is begging a Texas court NOT to let a hairy legal battle stop her reality show from airing ... because, according to her, millions would suffer. 

TMZ broke the story ... Roman was sued in March by Crème de la Crème hair company for allegedly bailing on her endorsement duties and then promoting her OWN hair line instead. The company asked the court to stop VH1 from showing any segments where Tami promoted her line instead of theirs.

Now Roman is firing back ... claiming in court docs that she is the VICTIM because Crème didn't pay her on time, thus breaking any obligation she had to them or their hair extensions. 

Roman goes on to claim that prohibiting the show from airing would affect "millions of people" and the harm suffered by Crème de la Crème "pales in comparison."

Roman is asking the court to let the show air as is, along with ordering Crème to remove her name and likeness from any products and pay her court costs.

A judge has yet to rule on the case.

Cancel this show along with the rest of this reality garbage that's all over all the networks, all it is, is trashy, slutty, whores, giving women a bad name, thinking a normal woman behaves like these pigs do. And they are all pigs. Get a real job.

That show is a disgrace to women. It is really shocking how mean and violent they are to each other. Here's a thought, if y'all don't like each other, stop hanging out together! Oh yeah, the show and the money.....your children will be so proud of you one day!

Simple: if you don't like these types of shows, just DONT watch. its just that easy. Apparently, there are MILLIONS of people watching because without the ratings, it would have been cancelled after season 1. Everything isnt for everyone. If they want to beat on each other, thats on them.. but they do NOT REPRESENT women. I represent myself. It irks my nerve to hear people say these people on TV represent me as a woman or for my race because they don't. Tami, Ev, Shaunie and those women represent THEMSELVES. If they want to act like wild animals, so be it. The problem with todays society is that, you let TV raise your children and you let these celebrities become your role models. As soon as people see something that doesn't represent" them, its time to cancel shows and protest when all you have to do is CHANGE THE CHANNEL.

Millions of people are affected EVERY time a show is canceled. Believe it or not, they all survive and move on with their lives. Editing a show will seriously not affect their lives adversely.

"Millions would suffer"???????????

Is she seriously that delusional that she thinks she and her castmates are all that and if they were pulled from the TV that people would suffer?

Is she not aware of what REAL suffering is?

Roman, go visit a third world country for a month, then tell me what suffering really is, no one suffers if a TV show is cancelled.

In a lot of ways it would be a blessing if this trashy show was removed from TV so that it does not pollute the minds of young teens and young women.

Watching women act like Rabid Animals is not something anyone NEEDS to watch or have in their lives, therefore no suffering would occur, instead the heavens would rejoice with thanksgiving to have one more show promoting immoral behavior and evil, removed from the TV.
