“I am excited to be the newest addition to the FOX SOUL family,” said Tami. “They are doing amazing things for the culture and being able to add my spoke to their already successful wheel of programming is such a blessing. I hope that people enjoy what I have to offer.”
The show has already been a hit for Roman who went viral today for a conversation she had with fellow media maven TS Madison. Roman took the opportunity to ask Madison, a Trans woman and prominent member of the LGBTQIA community, how she should best deal with her daughter who recently came out as bisexual. Tami admits that while she is not homophobic, she also was not raised in a culture tolerant of homosexuality or bisexuality and does not feel equipped to support her daughter the way she feels she should.
“I’ll tell you honestly. I, in no way want to come off as homophobic, because I’m not. But in all honesty, I cried. I was hurt…that wasn’t what I envisioned for my daughter. When any mother is pregnant with her son, she doesn’t say, ‘I want my son to be a gay male.’ When she has a daughter, she doesn’t say, ‘I want my daughter to be a lesbian.’ You hope that if that’s their truth that you’re able to love them and still have a relationship and a rapport with them. And there are some mothers out there that don’t. I’m the type of mother that does. But at the same time, this is not what I envisioned, I wanted her to have a husband and kids. I felt like she selfishly through a monkey wrench in my plans.”
Madison recommended Roman and her daughter seek counseling together to better understand each other.
