Shaq and Shaunie Wanted a Reality Check

11/12/2009 4:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Shaquille O'Neal and now-estranged wife Shaunie made a pilot for a reality TV show -- and while their marriage is falling apart, at least one network is still considering putting the reality show on the air.

Shaq & Shaunie
Earlier this year, the O'Neals had been pitching out a show called "Love Shaq," based on several family-style reality shows like "Meet the Barkers," "Newlyweds" and "Til Death Do Us Part" -- but unlike those couples, the O'Neal's marriage fell apart before the show ever aired.

TMZ got in contact with A&E, who confirmed they had seen the pilot -- and told us they are still "considering" whether or not to purchase the show. FYI -- the show is obviously not in production at the moment.

But the show could be dead before A&E gets to make a decision -- as we previously reported, Shaunie's already moved out -- pulling their kids out of their Florida school and relocating to L.A.

Shaquille O'Neal is young and dumb. That b*tch Shaunie is a tramp. Apparently, all of that time SHAQ spent in L.A., he forgot to soak up some game: simply put, "you can't make a hoe a housewife." Ball player or not. Hoes do what they do. They weren't meant to be wed, they were only meant for the bed. Ya dig?

What mother would pull their kids out of school just for the money? Kids always come first, I'm sure she could of left her kids in school and still found a way to claim California as home. Now they have to readjust for her benefit. It's not the end of the world but it is selfish. Love your kids more than you hate your ex.
