Former “Basketball Wives” star Tami Roman has been out here building up businesses, acting and dropping the pounds, but she’s also been spending time dating a new man named Reggie, who she calls her “baby boo.” Sitting down with The Jasmine Brand to talk about her new relationship, Roman was pretty open about the role Reggie (the owner of a trucking company in Houston) plays in her life, but honest about the fact that she is a little insecure when it comes to him.

You see, Reggie is 17 years younger than Roman (“I’m close to his mom’s age.”) and she’s a little worried that the women around his own age might swoop in at some point. Here are some of the most interesting details that Roman shared.

I’ve always been a open book and so I’m opening this part.

I think I’m at a point now where I have to expose that part of myself.

I’m constantly trying to figure out ways that Tami can use her ways in whatever.

I know at this moment, there are a lot of women that–for me the age difference was an issue and then it wasn’t an issue. [laughs] Reggie: For me, personally, she’s just a real person.

I know a lot of women out there who are going through that thing–older women, younger men. If there are any things that looking at our relationship and how we deal with each other can help them with, or make them feel more comfortable in their relationship… They say, ‘Mom, you’re like a young mom and he’s like an old soul soul so ya’ll kind of work.’ But he is closer to my oldest daughter’s age than he is to mine [laughs]. She’s a genuine person–it’s hard to meet a genuine female. Tami Roman: He’s an admitted womanizer in his past because he just felt like all women wasn’t worth anything or they’re out to get something.

He was coming from that place and I was coming from the place that I can’t trust men based on my previous relationships.

We’re both wounded but help each other by being together. You can check out Part I of Roman’s chat with The Jasmine Brand below, where she also talks about if they want kids and Reggie possibly being featured in a spin-off show she has in the works.

The silliest argument is probably–if he looks in that direction a little too long and something’s over there and I feel like you shouldn’t have been looking for three minutes. He is more age appropriate with that demographic than with me–that’s what makes me insecure. My knees are bad and I can’t get down low twerking all night. I have real bills and expenses and a mortgage and a car.
