Tami Roman Reveals Reason for Her Significant Weight Loss

The Basketball Wives star addressed critics who have accused her of being too thin on Thursday (June 14), revealing she makes healthier lifestyle choices because of diabetes.

“I didn’t lose weight, I lost my willingness to die. DIABETES IS NO JOKE! I Detox, suppress my appetite and make better food choices,” Roman captioned a photo of herself. “So enjoy yourself laughing, leaving negative comments & calling me a “crackhead”…but I have two beautiful daughters and I’m gon’ live for them by ANY means necessary.”

The Bonnet Chronicles creator shared her message after fans called her “too skinny” and made cruel jokes about her figure when she debuted a shorter hairstyle.
