'Basketball Wives' Star

My (Not) Fat Ass

Got Me a Fat Bank Account

"Basketball Wives" star Tami Roman traded in her large behind for some large bills -- because a diet company offered her a SIX FIGURE endorsement deal after she shed 25 pounds using their product!!!

Sources close to Tami tell TMZ she got all the way up to 185 lbs recently and was determined to lose the weight. She started exercising her booty off, ate healthy food ... and began using a product called NV Sprinkles -- where you sprinkle powder on your food to make you eat less.

We're told Tami dropped the weight in about two months and was so vocal in the press about the NV's help in her speedy weight loss, the company actually approached her to be the face of the product.

Our sources say Tami signed on for a mid-six-figure endorsement deal and all she has to do is keep the weight off.

So ... donuts anyone?

Just great! A loud mouthed bully being the face of a weight-loss product.

These types of "diets" are 100% total bullsh*t. They are the exact opposite of what someone should do to lose weight and keep it off. It's nothing but a trap, to make sh*tloads of money for it's creators and it is a shame this woman is promoting it.

What ever happened to pushing yourself away from the table a little earlier?! If I'm "sprinkling" powder on anything it's going in my nose...not my mouth.

Tami Roman's getting pregnant and entrapping athletes into marrying her is what got her a fat bank account.


The first time she was on mtv, and the guy didn't fall for it, so she happily went off and got an abortion.


The (second? who knows how many attempts she made, but two were publicised on tv; an unsuccessful one and a "successful" one)

What made her lose the weight was actually moving around and excerising more than she had to. Not because of that Sprinkle.

Exercising and eating right is enough. As for 6 figure paycheck, big deal, that wont last and will be gone in no time.

Yes lets reinforce her bully behavior and drunkeness by giving her an endorsement. NV Sprinkles will never make a dime out of my hand or with others that half some degree of self respect. Poor money spent NV Sprinkles.

She is such a seemingly awful person, I cannot believe anyone would want them as the 'face' of their product. If anything it would make me less likely to use their product, but the bottom line is that she changed her diet and exercised and that is how she lost her fat ass, not from some magic sprinkle anyway.

I see she's dressed for Halloween. That is a great ugly monster mask she has on. Unfortunately, she is even uglier on the inside.
