Many moons (and jobs!) ago, I taught first grade. In fact, my first class of little ones just started college this week, making me realize I must have been the youngest first-grade teacher in the history of the world! ;) That said, I spent a lot of time tying shoes, wiping noses, and saying "use your words."
Who knew that that phrase would resurface (for different reasons) as a blogger while watching the crazy antics of the women of Basketball Wives! Well, I'm happy to report that Tami Roman is seconding Shaunie O'Neal's sentiments that this new season will be less about yanking out hair and more about building up relationships. That's right! Tami is now ready to use her words…and not her fists!
Sister 2 Sister is dishing on a recent interview with Tami where she talks about how she will be showing a calmer, more centered, side of herself on the upcoming season.

Tami, who sometimes likes to refer to herself in the third person (hey, who doesn't sometimes?) reveals, “My approach to this season was to basically learn how to talk to the ladies and be more of a voice rather than a fist. It’s not that Tami didn’t know how to articulate. It’s not that Tami doesn’t know how to interact with other people, but I chose to only use one dynamic of myself. I am very articulate. I am educated. I have worked in corporate America."
The long time reality star seems to imply that her aggressive side was one that the fans wanted to see. Tami explains, “I came into the situation one way and I said, ‘OK. That’s working, Let me just stay there,’ and it worked until it didn’t work. Now, I had to take responsibility and dial back and open more of myself up. It’s just me really showing 100 percent of myself and not one aspect."
With the new season just days away, Tami hopes that fans will see a softer side. She shares, “The tone of the show has changed. We’re able to show people that we can talk through problems, that we’ve grown and matured at our own pace, at our own level. That’s going to be exciting for people to see."
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I'll believe it when I see it…and I do hope I see it! Check out more of Tami's interview below!
