Movies & TV

Aaahhh, it’s been almost 6 months and avid fans of Basketball Wives Miami have been patiently awaiting the new season which will air tonight on Vh1 at 8.p.m. The blogosphere has been swirling with gossip and leaks about some of the drama that has been occurring behind the scenes and during tapings, and if you are anything like me and my girlfriends you are ripping at the seams to see what’s going on with the demise of Evelyn and Jen’s friendship, Evelyn’s pending nuptials with Chad Ochocinco, the new girls and how they will ebb with the pre-existing bonds between other cast mates, and of course who Tami Roman is going to lay hands on this season. The suspense has been all too much! Our friends over at cherryontop.com caught up with Ms. Roman to get all the juice on what to expect this season with our favorite girls from Miami.

When it comes to Jennifer and Evelyn, what’s it been like watching their friendship fall apart the way it has?
TR: From my standpoint, I always looked at them and said, “How are they best friends?” Because I didn’t really feel a lot of friendship love. Like I know my diehard friends, we don’t function in the way they function, so I can’t say that I’m very surprised. I always felt that there was a little tension towards Evelyn from Jennifer. I didn’t really know what it was, couldn’t put my finger on it, but now that this thing is starting to unfold before my eyes, just as it will for everyone else, I’m seeing what those underlying tensions were, and they’re all going to be brought to the forefront this season.

What you just said about feeling “tension” from Jennifer towards Evelyn is similar to something Evelyn said in a recent interview about there always being something weird or off about her friendship with Jennifer.
TR: Yeah, I have to tell you on the outside looking in, I definitely noticed it. I always saw Evelyn trying to always be there for Jennifer, but I never saw that really reciprocated. And so, however, okay, well that’s their friendship, that’s the way it works for them, but for me looking at the friendship, something just didn’t really seem right. Now I’m coming to understand what it really was.
