BBWLA Are Tami Roman and Reggie Youngblood getting married?

Tami Roman and Reggie Youngblood 1

Tami Roman and Reggie Youngblood have been through a lot over the course of their relationship, something that Basketball Wives LA viewers learned last summer when Tami suffered a high-profile miscarriage at age 45. But her relationship with Reggie is seemingly stronger than ever, leading some fans to wonder…are the pair getting ready to tie the knot?

One of the long-standing criticisms of the show Basketball Wives LA is the fact that very few of the women featured on the show are both a) married and b) together with current NBA players. In our recent rundown of the BBWLA Season 5 cast, we found that only one (1) of the eight (8) women who receive top billing this year meet both criteria: Brandi and Jason Maxiell are the lone contemporary Basketball Couple. (Jackie and Doug Christie are the only other married couple on the show, but Doug retired from the NBA in 2007. Though he has been an assistant coach in the ensuing years, so, if you’re feeling generous, you might give Doug and Jackie a pass.)

In fact, Jazz Anderson, Tami’s daughter, recently shared a string of Snapchat videos in which she took the BBWLA producers to task for not including more actual wives. The videos, which have since been deleted, featured Jazz saying things like “I’m watching Basketball Wives, and Shaunie do not care, like, she will let anybody be on the show. She’s got someone dating a basketball agent” and ““Hi, my name is Jazz Anderson, I date the water boy for the Cavaliers.”

As for Tami Roman and Reggie Youngblood, they’ve decided that, while they might carry out a proper ceremony in the future, for now, they’ve decided to live exactly as they have been: namely, as a couple married in spirit if not on paper. They explained their decision in a Christian Post interview last year, shortly after Tami suffered a miscarriage:

The Word [of God] has no specifics on marriage. What I mean by that is there is nothing in the word that says two people need to be legally married for there to be a covenant between them and God and share a union….[We have] made a conscious decision to live as a married unit.”

One thing’s for sure: Tami and Roman definitely get along very, very well. Earlier this year, when talking about everything she and Roman have been through, Tami revealed to Hip Hop Hollywood that she and Roman have suffered three miscarriages with Roman…but that they fully intend to keep trying to have children.

“I am in love with someone that I love with every inch of my being and he wants a kid so we are going to keep trying,” Tami said. She explained that she and Roman have sex at least two to three times per day (twice or three times mean “a slow day”): “It’s in some way, form of fashion. It doesn’t have to be penetration. We can rub out sometimes. It’s different methods to get it going….After a certain age we reach this point where we want it all the time.”

    Tami Roman is nothing more than a hateful washed up reality star, just a Shaunty drag along friend who needs a paycheck.

    • Alisson Leech

      Shaunie is washed up too.

      • Michael

        I know, that’s why she had to move from the original Basketball Wives series to LA where they had some ratings.

    • Tiffany

      BUT Tami is getting a paycheck and we ALL know who she is AND shes on tv on many reality shows over the years SO shes doing her thing AS WE WATCH so being that she is an ACTIVE reality show star NOT “washed up” as you put it. Michael,dont hate ..participate You probably already do and your rant makes you seemingly “hateful” with your friend Allison. Im going to bet neither one of you is getting a check like they are.

      • Michael

        I am participating with my hate, isn’t that the only thing they do on those shows and the only reason people watch? I doubt many people tune to see them drink tea and giggle about what guy got it in the night before.
