2. Shaunie and Tami Trade Places
The other two women itching to scratch off the nastiness stuck to their images, Tami Roman and Shaunie O’Neal, also wasted no time in trying to convince the public that they aren’t the evil shrews they are edited to be. Visiting Shaunie at her home in Los Angeles, Tami said that she is learning to be more cognizant about the things she says before she actually says them. In response, Shaunie said she's less concerned about telling it like it is no matter who gets offended, offering a preview of the “new,” blunter Shaunie we’ve been promised. That explains why for all that chatter about growth and balance, Shaunie snuck in the warning that, “We’ll all have our moments of regressing.”
Like Evelyn, Tami finds herself in the midst of a lot of personal drama. She’s no longer with her boyfriend, which subsequently means that everyone is leaning on her financially. Worse, her mother is gravely ill, placing her in a new reality that adults of a certain age all ultimately have to face: Life without their parents.
