Basketball Wives Episode 12: Tasmanian Tami Roman Hits Tahiti
We ended Basketball Wives episode 11 with Miss RR having a severe panic when her father doesn't approve of her boyfriend. Episode 12 begins with the three of them having a friendly get-together. And by friendly, we of course mean awkward and uncomfortable.
You've heard the phrase "from bad to worse." For this meal, that's an understatement. It goes from horrific to flat-out indescribable. Before Royce's boyfriend Dezmon can even take his seat at the table, her father asks him, "So, Royce is pretty needy right?" That's a pretty spot-on characterization, but it's still pretty harsh coming from your own dad. And unfortunately for Royce, boyfriend couldn't agree more.
This is a safe space, right? Really, if any place should be a judgment-free zone, it's a Basketball Wives recap. So we're just going to say it: We think Chad & Evelyn are a really, really cute couple. Especially after their little scene while he was sick in bed. Yep, we're suckers for made-for-TV love.
As they get off the plane, Kesha has a slight cough. Nothing too bad, yet Tami believes she is spreading the Ebola virus and needs her to cover her goddamn mouth immediately. Mental note: Never, ever even think of sneezing in front of Tami is OK. She will straight cut your contagious ass.
The trip was pretty uneventful: dinners, drinks, lovely bungalows, etc. But then we realized that every scene came with a heaping side of hate for all 48 inches of Kesha's child-like body, courtesy of Tami. Immediately we knew that even if Jennifer and Kenya never did arrive in Tahiti, there would still be drama. And thank God for that.
What we have to look forward to next week is this tropical fight possibly turning violent. Woo hoo!
