Remember Tami From Real World L.A.? Now She's On Basketball Wives.


Tami—who got her jaw wired shut, her blanket ripped off her, and had an abortion on the second season of The Real World—is making a triumphant return to reality TV for the new season of VH1’s Basketball Wives.

Tami was a cast member on The Real World 17 years ago, when the focus was more on “real.” She really put it all out there, including her abortion, her prejudice against lesbians (that seemed to contrast with her job as an AIDS care specialist, working with many homosexual men), her body image issues, and her stint with trying to cheat on the TV show Studs. It would seem, from the trailer for the new season of Basketball Wives—premiering December 12—that she’s not interested in keeping it any less real. She’s seen openly arguing with ex-husband Kenny Anderson over custody issues, as well as removing her shoes for a fight with some of her other cast members—at a charity event—over food stamps.
