Basketball Wives Star Tami Roman Has Heart Attack!!!!!
According to reports the "Billy Bad Azz" of VH1's Basketball Wives, Tami Roman suffered a "minor" heart attack on Monday of last week! Her publicist confirmed that the 41 year old reality show star was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a medical emergency Monday night.
Later, her publicist posted on VH1.com "She has since been released and would like to let her fans and supporters know she is doing fine and looks forward to resuming her scheduled engagement."
After a few days of rest and recovery, Tami tweeted she was traveling to Atlantic City and then to Atlanta this weekend to promote The Tombs, the film she recently produced, at the Atlanta Film Festival.
Tami also took a moment to confirm her self that she did in fact have a heart attack. However, she was quick to say that she is back on her feet adding via Twitter; “U can’t keep me down! Just left doctor-everything is back to normal YAY-God is good! Now, back to the GRIND-NJFFF here I come."
Shocking enough, having a heart attack came as little surprise to Tami, as she later added that her heart attack was the result of heart disease. A battle she has taken on privately. Tami said, “I have never publicly said it, but I have heart disease.”
Though we're glad that Tami is back on her feet, unfortunately there's more bad news for Tami. She's actually being sued by a company called Crème De La Crème Hair for backing out of an endorsement deal in which she promised to feature their hair extensions on air. Tami is being accused of failing to coordinate the company's appearance on the show, according to a lawsuit filed in Texas in early March, and is being asked to cover more than $75 thousand in damages.
People, please take care of yourselves. The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute describes the symptoms of a heart attack as follows:
- Chest pain or discomfort. This involves uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain in the center or left side of the chest that can be mild or strong. This discomfort or pain often lasts more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back.
- Upper body discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw, or upper part of the stomach.
- Shortness of breath, which may occur with or before chest discomfort.
- Nausea (feeling sick to your stomach), vomiting, light-headedness or sudden dizziness, or breaking out in a cold sweat.
- Symptoms also may include sleep problems, fatigue (tiredness), and lack of energy.
