Tami RomanBeing married to a professional basketball player may have its perks, but the glitz wears off eventually. Just ask 'Basketball Wives' newest star, Tami Roman. She divorced NBA player Kenny Anderson after six years of marriage when rumors of his infidelity surfaced. She bolted -- even though their prenuptial agreement left her without a dime. She was forced to use food stamps to care for their two daughters -- recently denying reports that she ended up with half of his assets.

Now, on the second season on 'Basketball Wives,' which debuts Dec. 12 at 8PM ET on VH1, she's finally telling her side of the story, admitting her biggest regret after the divorce was not putting her children first.

"If you just put Kenny and I in a room, with no mediator, there's no telling what would happen. It hasn't always been an amicable situation. We haven't been proper parents in how we deal with each other, and that has taken a negative effect on his relationship with my daughters," Roman tells PopEater, adding that Anderson hadn't seen the girls in a decade.

"There are so many children who are going through these difficult divorces, and their parents forget about them, which is what Kenny and I did. We acknowledge that this season and try to rebuild."
