Most people over the age of 28 remember Tami from an infamous incident on the second season of MTV’s “The Real World” which involved a male housemate pulling a blanket off of her while she was less than fully clothed. Another roommate compared the incident to rape, and things escalated until the housemate was asked to leave.
