Tami Roman grew up in a middle middle class single parent household in White Plains, NY. Since her mom worked three jobs to support them, Tami spent many days and nights alone, undoubtedly a "latch-key" kid responsible for raising herself. It wasn't until Tami's mother met and married Ali Akbar that her childhood changed drastically. Ali, a devout Muslim taught Tami the value of higher education, spiritual foundation, and strong family values. Although, it was the Muslim culture that would subconsciously teach Tami that women should be submissive and eternally supportive of their husbands, as they are the head of the household.
Falling in line with the culture may have worked for Tami, but not her mother. Upon Ali's infidelity, Tami's mother immediately divorced him, leaving Tami broken and confused. The only man that she associated unconditional love with was snatched away and the only woman she ever loved and respected became a hardened, skeptical, workaholic. Tami would spend the better part of her life trying to find love lost and working hard to never become as distant as her mother.
Over the next couple of years, Tami and her mother would go through many trials and tribulations. Bonding beyond belief, to the point they appeared to be more like sisters than mother and daughter. Especially when they were forced to live on the streets for six (6) months because her mother was unjustly terminated from her job, they stuck together, faced the toughest of storms and developed a relationship that would stand the test of time. Tami didn't attend her prom and almost didn't participate in graduation ceremony because she couldn't afford her cap and gown. All of life's down points helped Tami and her mother to become strong, independent, knowledgeable, humble women who know, understand, and appreciate the value of life.
Tami entertained a career in the modeling field before securing what seemed to be an answered prayer, when at 22 she booked a role on MTV's hit reality show "THE REAL WORLD". Tami and her mother were suddenly in an upward swing, as Tami booked several guest starring roles on TV shows and became a full-time guest VJ for MTV. In fact, it was the latter that would further change Tami's life forever. While working in New York for MTV, Tami attended a birthday party with a friend and met her future husband Kenny Anderson.
Tami, not a follower of basketball, had no idea who Kenny was when she met him and Kenny a watcher of BET not MTV was just as clueless. The only thing they were sure about was there was an undeniable chemistry between them that they both wanted to investigate.
Tami and Kenny talked over the phone for one (1) month getting to know each other. Still neither one of them brought their careers into the equation. In fact, Tami found out that Kenny played basketball when he invited her to a game. Sitting in the stands, awaiting his arrival, it wasn't until the game announcer yelled "KENNY ANDERSON" that Tami finally knew who she was courting. Since Kenny was used to dating women who were familiar with him, he expected Tami to come to the tunnel after the game. She didn't have a clue and continued to wait in the stands. Needless to say, Kenny left Tami at the arena, causing him to do some pretty heavy making up.
Kenny took Tami to dinner to apologize and as they sat there, many people watched them in awe. Kenny expressed that he didn't want to be bothered that evening and hopefully people would leave him alone. At that moment, a young woman approached the couple and asked for an autograph. Kenny hesitantly agreed, asking "Do you have a pen?" The woman replied, "Yes, but not yours...Tami's...I just love you on THE REAL WORLD". This would be the first time that Kenny became aware that Tami was just as famous as he was and he liked it. He instantly quipped, "This is going to be my wife".
The rest as they say is HISTORY. Their relationship brought a great deal of media attention. Some newspapers even touted Tami as the reason for Kenny's sudden All-star quality of play. Tami and Kenny were inseparable and eight months later, the two were married in front of 500 guests on a yacht that cruised around Manhattan. Tami was instantly thrust into a life of luxury�she was a player's wife. Kenny Anderson was the hometown hero and she was his confidante.
The site starts out with a youtube video of Tami saying she wants this site to let you know all about HER, but then the About Me is all about Kenny - save the last couple paragraphs. And according to her, she practically made this ninja but then left to her own devices she ended up on foodstamps wearing cat hair for weave....I can't
Cat hair for weave is the funniest s*** I've heard all day! I needed that laugh. She was definitely professionally styled for the reunion tho
