Tami Roman Reveals She Once Auditioned For “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, But Bravo Declined


It looks like Tami Roman had great interest in being apart of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta cast.

During a recent interview on The Breakfast Club, Tami Roman revealed that she once auditioned to be apart of the RHOA cast, however, Bravo declined the reality tv vet!

” I did audition for The Real Housewives of Atlanta. It was after Basketball Wives had gotten cancelled, and so I tried to get up on there and they told me no.”

When asked what was the reason for them declining her interest, she replied,

“They said I was too big of a personality on an opposing network.”

When co-host Angela Yee interjected and asked,

“So they thought people would affiliate you too much.”

Roman said,

“Yes, with the other brand which was very similar. I got it” 

Tami Roman joined the original Miami cast of BasketBall Wives during season 2 as a friend of Shaunie O’Neal and quickly became a fan favorite. However, many fans can recall Tami Roman’s unexpected departure when she left midway through season 8 of Basketball Wives citing reasons of bad editing.

Throughout her time on the show, Roman found herself at odds with several co-stars, oftentimes in both verbal and physical altercations. By season 7, Tami was done with the drama and wanted her storyline to center on her family and acting career. As a result, she quit the show midway through season 8 and did not attend the reunion special.

In June, Tami Roman expressed interest in joining The Real Housewives franchise during a red carpet interview. When asked if she would like to join ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘–since she’s already friends with Marlo HamptonTami revealed that she has her eyes set on ‘The Real Housewives Of Potomac.” She explained,

“‘Real Housewives Of Potomac‘ would be the one I’d like… I love the Grande Dame [Karen Huger], I feel like we could team up and let them other ladies have it.”
