Much has been said about Bill Cosby in recent weeks as women continue to come forward accusing the comedian of sexual assault, and now, in addition to his reputation, his star has been tarnished as well. The 77-year-old comedian’s star on the Walk of Fame has been vandalized, with the word “rapist” repeatedly written on it in black ink. The damage was discovered on Friday morning, as seen in pics taken by Hip Hop Hollywood, and, according to reports, can still be visibly seen.

“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is an institution celebrating the positive contributions of the inductees,” the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said in a statement with regards to the vandalization. “When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways then to vandalize a California State landmark. The star is being cleaned up at this time.”

Tami Roman opens up about decision to reveal past rape & abuse on ‘Basketball Wives’

Since her days on MTV’s hit reality series “The Real World”, Tami Roman has been no stranger to controversy.  She has built her career off of her outspoken attitude.  Her multiple altercations on Basketball Wives has made the show a fan favorite.  However there’s way more to the single mother of two than you’d ever imagine.

On last week’s episode of Basketball Wives, viewers were shocked to learn that Tami had been the victim of sexual assault twice, as well as held up at gunpoint and physically abused which has become the source of her built up anger over the years. In a counseling session that she attended on the show to get to the root of her anger, she revealed:

‘As a kid growing up, I was raped twice. My mom didn’t know about it. That’s an issue for me. I’ve been held up at gunpoint, someone threatening to blow my brains out, torturing me for four days. People have beat me up. People who I thought loved me. That’s why I’m real big on my personal space because I’ve been violated so much by people who that I thought cared about me.

Our friends over at NecoleBitchie.com spoke to Tami right after that episode aired and she discussed her decision to reveal something so personal on the show . She also revealed how her past assaults have played a part in the way she has reacted towards her Basketball Wives castmates and towards David during her stint on Real World, when he tried to pull the blankets off of her semi-nude body.
