NBA Player Eric Williams

HOMELESS SITUATION IS KARMA

... Says 'Basketball Wives' Co-Star

EXCLUSIVE

0422-tami-roman-eric-williams-getty-tmz-01Former NBA player Eric Williams has no one to blame for his terrible situation but himself ... because "God doesn't like ugly" ... so says his former "Basketball Wives" co-star Tami Roman.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Williams -- who played in the league for 12 seasons -- claims he's homeless and in dire financial straits after blowing the fortune he made as a professional athlete. 

We reached out to Tami Roman -- who appeared on "BW: Miami" with Williams a few years ago -- and she told us that she understands his homeless situation "because I have been there, but clearly God doesn’t like ugly."

Tami adds, "Meanwhile, my girl Jen (Eric's ex-wife) is being a beauty enjoying her new life and loving her new life."

FYI -- Eric was a total a-hole to Jennifer Williams on the show back in the day, trashing her virtually every chance he got and even THROWING A DRINK IN HER FACE on one episode. 

Clearly, Tami feels that his current situation is nothing but pure karma.

Tami Roman is the last person who should be talking about what goes around comes around or that God doesn't like ugly after the way she treated that girl kesha nichols. That hypocrite has her dues coming.

Tami should watch what she says about God and not liking ugly. She had an abortion back in her Real World days. Now, I'm all for a woman's right to choose but she shouldn't be pointing fingers when she's not without sin either.

My 2 Cents    

So if her assessment is correct. When she was extremely ill and suffered a heart attack in 2012 and some sort of diabetic emergency (according to tmz.com) and month ago I guess that was karma for all of her bad behavior on the show too huh? Be careful Tami.... glass houses.....

I am not at least surprised.

It is a known fact that majority of professional Athletes, especially those that play professional Basketball can't even read or write. They all go to some College that accepts them not because they are straight A students or have Qualifying GPAs, it's because they can throw a ball around better than most people and/or Affirmative Action.

Upon graduation they can't even read or write, and lack any ability to manage money. So when their athletic careers are over, and having blown Millions of dollars instead of investing their money wisely, they eventually end up broke or Homeless.

No sympathy, and good riddance.
