Tami Roman Talks About Being Forced To Quit Morgan Stanley For 'Basketball Wives': 'I Sure Didn't Make It Easy'

Tami Roman revealed how she kept herself afloat after she was forced to quit her job at Morgan Stanley.

Atlanta Black Star reports that Roman talked about her past in finance in the Shade Room, writing that she was given an ultimatum in 2010 regarding if she would continue to work at the financial organization or continue her career in reality television on Basketball Wives.

"The finance firm I worked for told me I couldn't continue to do BBW & work for them, so the day before season 3 aired, I quit," she wrote. She also added that she took items that wouldn't give her replacement an easy time.

“[I] took all my files, my key card, office keys, erased all my work off the computer, all the executive’s calendars & files and bounced,” she wrote. “I sure didn’t make it easy for someone to step into my role. I’m sorry.”

Some fans were cheering on her pettiness, but other fans were disappointed with how Roman made things tough for an innocent person who wasn’t behind her leaving her job.

The reason she had a Morgan Stanley job in the first place was because of an acting job that fell through. Roman has previously said she was set to star in a comedy executive produced by Queen Latifah and Shakim [Compere] called Wifey, which would shoot in New Jersey. She moved her family to New Jersey for the job.

However, the show got canceled and she was now in New Jersey with her family and no job.

To support her family, she was able to get a job at Morgan Stanley. Eventually, she saw the first season of Basketball Wives and decided to try out.

Roman can currently be seen on the BET drama Haus of Vicious.
