'Basketball Wives' is turning the drama up this week. This season of the reality show seems to have the rumor mills in full swing. After the recent shocker of Cece's "special massages", the next thing seems to be totally unpredictable. In a recent sneak peek of Tuesday's episode Tami Roman and Shaunie O'Neal go shopping. Tami brings up an assignment that she has to do where she has to say something positive about anyone she comes across. As the girls discuss what they would say and how difficult it can be, Tami suggests it would be good for everyone to do it. This assignment, she says was given to her by Pastor John Gray. 

Then she drops a bomb on Shaunie. She says, "Your name wasn’t specifically said, but I feel like what was said might affect you”? before leaving Shaunie super curious and shocked. Tami says she heard some chatter on the streets more than a year ago." While Tami seems to pretend that she's the better person, it clearly seems like she's already enjoying the drama that is about to unfold. 

She ends it with, "Although I would never repeat the rumor, I want her to know that it's out there and would encourage the person who said it to own up and say it to Shaunie personally." 

Basketball Wives follows the daily lives, drama-filled parties and outrageous fights that unfold between the wives and girlfriends of professional basketball players living it up in Miami. The cast includes Royce Reed, Suzie Ketcham, Jennifer Williams, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neal.

While it was speculated that the Pastor knew nothing about the drama, new deets reveal that he actually knew the whole thing. According to VH1, "It turns out, he's more aware of Tami's relationships with her friends because she's opened up to him and his wife on their show, The Book of John Gray."

Tami says, " I do a show with a lot of women who aren't as necessarily supportive and empowering as I would like them to be. When people come into my space challenging me, it really works me and really sends me to the moon and I don't come back from it." She also added that the show is "wearing down [her] emotionally".

And it seems like Tami is attempting to turn over a new leaf or least is trying to. Recently, Tami and Royce Reed, who have a history of not liking each other seemed to have patched things up after all these years. Tami  even posted an Instagram birthday tribute to who she calls her “lil sister.” She further captioned the post: “In a world full of snakes, it’s good to know we have EAGLES! Happy birthday @roycereed Dis my mf’in lil sister right here!” she captioned under a pic of Reed. “A real one who never switched up, never played both sides, always put me in my place & never backed down from what’s right or the truth. I wish you ALL your dreams, desires and MORE.”
