Tamera ‘Ty’ Young is a successful athlete with fame of her own. But when a midseason trailer for Real Housewives of Atlanta dropped on July 7, 2023, she was catapulted to a new type of fame. The basketball star, currently a free agent, was seemingly accused of allegedly having a romantic relationship with one of the show’s stars, Drew Sidora. The accusation would present a problem, since Drew has been married to Ralph Pittman since 2014.

Drew filed for divorce from Ralph in March, but Drew’s co-star Sheree Whitfield says in the widely discussed trailer, “[Drew] was cheating with a well-known basketball player — that’s what the streets are saying.”  A producer then asked, “Who is Ty?”, with Drew responding, “I don’t know what I can say and not say.” A clip subsequently showed Drew hugging Ty. Marlo Hampton claimed she “videotaped” Drew kissing a woman, though it wasn’t clarified whether that woman was the basketball pro or not.

With intense speculation surrounding Drew and Ralph’s divorce after nearly nine years of marriage, here’s what to know about Ty Young.

She attended James Madison University

According to her Wikipedia page, the small forward attended James Madison University, playing collegiately for the team between 2004-2008, launching her pro career immediately afterwards. Ty also lists “model” and “coach” among her additional vocations on her official Instagram page.

Ty is a former WNBA star

Tamera was drafted out of James Madison by the Atlanta Dream at the eight overall pick during the 2008 WNBA draft. Years later, she was traded to the Chicago Sky, where she helped lead the team to the WNBA Finals in 2015. She headed back to Atlanta, but was traded again to the Las Vegas Aces in 2018. She also played overseas in Latvia for the Cesis between 2008 and 2009, in Turkey for Pankup between 2009 and 2010, and in France for the Basket Landes between 2010 and 2011, all off-season gigs for the star.

She’s an MVP

Amid a prolific basketball career, Ty signed with Maccabi Bnot Ashdod in Israel. In 2012, the team won the Israeli Cup and Ty was named the MVP in the victory.

She’s a youngest child

Ty was born in Wilmington, North Carolina, in 1986, to Lynda Nichols-Brown and the late Greg Young. She is the youngest sibling after older brother A.J. and older sister Nikia.

Ty is engaged to a VH1 star

According to Wikipedia pages for both, Tamera has been engaged to VH1 reality star Love & Hip Hop Atlanta personality Mimi Faust since 2016. Mimi has one child. Neither has commented on the speculation surrounding the recent mid-season trailer.

Danielle Jonas Says She Often Feels ‘Less Than’ Sisters-In-Law Priyanka Chopra & Sophie Turner

Feeling left out! During Kevin Jonas‘ appearance on the LadyGang podcast on Jun. 27, his wife, Danielle Jonas, 36, claimed that she often feels “less than” her sisters-in-law Priyanka Chopra, 40, and Game of Thrones alum Sophie Turner, 27. “The two boys [Joe and Nick Jonas] married somebody who, they’re actresses, they’re out there, everyone knows them,” she explained on the podcast. “And I feel like I’m Danielle, and it’s hard.”

As fans of the Jonas Brothers know, Nick, 30, is married to Priyanka who is a Bollywood star, while Joe, 33, is married to Sophie, also an A-list actress. Kevin was quick to jump in and reassured his wife of 14 years that, he too, often feels that way with his celebrity siblings. “I feel the same way with Nick and Joe, right? Like solo careers, movies, all this stuff. It’s like everyone has to find their place … No matter the situation, right?”, the 35-year-old shared.

Despite her hubby’s reassurance, Danielle explained that her claim to fame is her marriage to the “Burnin’ Up” musician. “It’s also that I’m out there celebrity-wise because I’ve married you,” the brunette beauty said. Around the 40-minute mark, the 36-year-old went to say that, she would like to have a separate identity or an endeavor of her own. “And that’s where it’s like, ‘Oh, I wanna have something else to my name too.’ So that it feels … I don’t know, more than or like the other girls,” Danielle went on. “‘Cause then when I’m with the other girls, I feel just less than sometimes. It’s weird.”

Kevin, who is the eldest of the Jonas Bros., then went on to explain that the game of “comparing” goes for everyone across the board. “You’ll always be compared to the people around you the most,” he quipped. The Hollywood heartthrob made sure to also note that, he is aware that he is synonymous with his brothers. “Like you literally started the conversation about the Jonas Brothers like that,” Kevin told the hosts of the episode. Danielle and Kevin have been married since 2009 and share two daughters, Alena, 9, and Valentina, 7.

Despite Danielle’s comments, the Quantico star has often spoken about loving having two sisters-in-law. In 2019, Priyanka told Elle UK about her bond with Danielle and Sophie. “I’ve never had a sister, so it’s really nice to have Danielle and Sophie, and just inheriting the family by proxy,” the 40-year-old gushed. The three ladies have even starred in a few of the Jonas Brothers’ music videos, including “Sucker” and “What A Man Gotta Do.” Priyanka married Nick in 2018, while Sophie married Joe in 2019.

In the Instagram photo, Jake embraces his future wife from behind while she proudly displays her stunning diamond ring.
