Basketball Wives star Tami Roman might not come back for Season 8 of the VH1 reality series.

Roman teased the possibility when she took to Instagram Stories on Wednesday,  Oct. 24, to answer fan questions.

“No comment,” the 48-year-old reality star responded when asked if she’ll return to the show next season.

Roman’s vague response comes only months after she denied fan speculation about her exit.

“Let me address ALL of your tweets…whew you got a lot of time,” she tweeted about the rumors in July. “Here goes, sick of me-ok, leaving show-nope, booked&busy-yup. But I need All my checks. I got bills. Have a wonderful day & rest your fingers.”

It’s possible Roman could leave reality TV behind for her growing acting career.

In July, she was cast alongside Octavia Spencer in the new Apple series, Are You Sleeping. 

Roman also has her Bonnet Chronicles web series, which is now available on Tidal.

If she does leave Basketball Wives, it would likely come as a loss to one of the show’s stars and executive producers, Shaunie O’Neal.

O’Neal and the Real World alum are both original cast members, and the two remain close off-camera.

“It felt great to have Evelyn back because that’s my girl on and off camera [and] Tami is also my girl on and off camera so it felt really good to have both of them back,” Shaquille O’Neal’s ex-wife told VH1 about Tami and another Basketball Wives veteran, Evelyn Lozada.

Evelyn and Tami, however, do not get along. The two didn’t speak for four years as a result of their constant feuding, and they had a big blow up at the Season 7 reunion.

There are also changes on the horizon for the VH1 series.

On Oct. 23, Deadline confirmed that the show ended its partnership with production company Shed Media in an effort to shake things up.

The cable network has already met with potential production teams about the show’s future, and the network reportedly hopes spin-off ideas will come out of these talks.

Basketball Wives has yet to announce a premiere date for Season 8.
