Loni Love got emotional on a recent episode of The Real while talking about her good friend Tami Roman's body dysmorphic disorder.
During the episode, the former Basketball Wives LA star revealed that she was diagnosed with body dysmorphic disorder in 2008, a mental disorder in which a perceived flaw in appearance is obsessed. “Yes, I've been diagnosed with Body Dysmorphic Disorder, okay. It's a mental disorder that has no cure, ”the 51-year-old told the co-hosts. “It takes me a lot to get up every day and say, 'Tami, you look great. Tami, you are pretty. Tami, you are beautiful. Tami, you don't have to lose weight anymore. Tami, you don't have to do anything. ‘I need a lot for that."
She later added, “When I put a picture up and [people] 'walk, you're so thin. I hope you are not sick, I pray for you. ‘Do not pray for me, for something that you do not understand."
After hearing Tami’s story, Loni - who also struggles with physical problems - became emotional out of concern for her friend. In tears she said, “I've been on TV for eight seasons and I'm just the opposite. You know, you're constantly trying to lose weight [and] you're constantly trying to be healthy. People don't understand the personal things you are going through. And when I saw you, my friend, I was worried. "
She continued, "So I'm just glad you opened up with that because I'm just so worried and just want you to be fine."
Then Tami Loni replied to assure her that despite the condition, she was actually fine. "I'm fine. I don't have cancer. I'm not dying. There is no such thing as an undiagnosed disease," she replied.
Check out the emotional exchanges below.
Tami Roman currently represents the whole week as a guest co-host at The Real.
