3. Tami’s Business Is Booming
When Tami isn’t cursing people out, swinging at people or daring them to swing at her, you remember how charming she can be and how much you want to root for her. When she first joined the show, she was down on her luck, admittedly struggling financially and trying to find her way as her ex-husband refused to own up to financial responsibilities in providing for their children. Now she looks like new money with the better grade of hair extensions to show for it.
With that in mind, I couldn’t help but be happy to see how well the “fan appreciation” back door launch party for her new nail polish line. Celebrities like Niecy Nash, Elise Neal and Stevie J joined Tami as she unveiled her new beauty product. Once Suzie and Evelyn arrived, Suzie says to Tami, “Now this is a real event.” Catch that shade, Tasha. You earned it.
A very happy Tami talks about the “sisterhood” they all share (minus Tasha, naturally) and it's sweet to see everyone appear genuinely touched. It’s too bad we now hear that Evelyn and Tami don’t speak at all. Oh well, at least we had that moment.
Although Tami is soaring professionally, personally she’s still dealing with the declining health of her mother. She acknowledges that she’s put up a wall and that it's not the best way to handle the loss of a parent. I can’t question her choices as I’ve yet to be put into that position. I will reiterate, though, that she’s a champ for sharing this struggle with the world.
