Basketball Wives star Tami Roman has said that if Meeka Claxton— who she slapped the mess out of on the last episode of the show, returns for the next season, she will not come back. In a radio interview, Tami explained why she hit Meeka — saying that she wanted to discuss lies that Meeka told since being on the show and wanted to give her an opportunity to tell the truth.
Tami said, “As we’re having this discussion all I see, which I have asked her not to do, was her getting ready to get up…ya know with her hand. Don’t put your hand up because I don’t know what you’re going to do. I don’t know if you’re going to swing at me. So I basically, you know, I have a defense mechanism that has always been apart of who I am and when I saw that hand…I snapped cause I’m like I don’t know what you’re going to do and I had to defend myself so that’s what y’all saw . . . .”
- Reports said earlier this week that Meeka sued Tami for assault. Tami said that she has not been served any papers and the lawsuit did come up during the reunion special — which the ladies taped already.
- Tami added that she will not be returning to the show if Meeka will because she will not work with someone who is suing her. She said that VH1 will have to choose between she and Meeka based on who is more valuable.
