I have been trying not to watch Basketball Wives, but after my twitter timeline lit up with comments about Tami’s behavior, I just had to have a sneak a peek. I ended up watching the whole episode like a crack-head. The show, however, didn’t feel right at all. My soul was hurting while watching Tami Roman bully Kesha over some comments Kesha made weeks ago that were not that serious and taken out of context. Last night after the show aired Tami issued a very weak public apology via twitter, claiming that she is not a bully. Perhaps, she doesn’t know what the word “bully” means:

Bully: a person who is habitually cruel or overbearing, especially to smaller or weaker people.

Bully: a blustering browbeating person; especially: one habitually cruel to others who are weaker

Bully: bullying is intentional aggressive behavior. It can take the form of physical or verbal harassment and involves an imbalance of power (someone who is physically bigger or more aggressive)

By every definition of the word, Tami is indeed a bully, and what she did to Kesha was WRONG! I felt like a bully just watching Basketball Wives because there was nothing I could do to help Kesha, who clearly wasn’t trying to fight or engage in the drama. Tami looked like a grown man trying to fight a little kid. Anyway, after the show was over, Tami issued an apology via twitter. This show was filmed weeks ago, and Tami is just now issuing a public apology for stealing Kesha’s purse and bullying her. Why now, Tami? Anyway, check out the apology when you continue…

I don’t apologize for it 2b accepted — that is ultimately the other person’s right to accept or deny it. My only responsibility is to acknowledge a mistake was made and own up to it. I apologize to my family, my REAL friends, my business colleagues, and my Project Girl ladies 4my recent behavior on BBW. I am NOT a bully as depicted on the show, but I did make poor decisions in handling my differences with my cast mate. I sincerely apologize to all of us, as well as to my castmate who was on the receiving end of my wrath. {Source}

Maybe a twitter apology is good enough for Kesha, but a statement released by a publicist to all media would have been better (that would be proper media etiquette). It probably would have helped if Tami reached out to Kesha to apologize publicly before Kesha contacted Tami, first.
