Shaq to VH1: My Wife Better Not Bash Me on TV

4/14/2010 1:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaquille O'Neal believes his estranged wife Shaunie O'Neal may be cooking up a "televised revenge" plot on her VH1 reality show -- and now he's making legal threats to keep her from Shaq-bashing on the air.

Shaq and his Wife

Shaq's lawyer has fired off a letter to the network -- obtained by TMZ -- in which he demands VH1 immediately halt production on "any further episodes of 'Basketball Wives' which make any reference to Mr. O'Neal."

Shaq's lawyer claims Shaunie signed a confidentiality agreement at some point in their relationship -- so if she says anything about Shaq on TV, she and the production company will find their asses in court.

The first episode of the show already ran last week and show #2 -- which reportedly features a scene centered around Shaunie's relationship with Shaq  -- is scheduled to run Sunday. Sources close to the show tell us it's unclear whether or not the next episode will make air.

If he didn't do anything wrong....then what does have to be worried about? I'm so SICK of these spoiled sports players who think they are above everyone else. Go suck an egg Shaq!

What does she have to bash him about? She's a ho who sold herself to a rich man as a trophy wife, who just spent the rest of her life in undeserved luxury while spending.

Come on man, your the one who banged all those strippers in Miamia nd now you don't want your ex-wife to air out all your dirty laundry on air.. makes me laugh when hear things like this, all the stars always want to be treated better then anyone else and they always want all the things us normal people can't really afford, and when it comes to their dignity they want to be treated like everyone else.. TOO LATE SUCKER..

Women are a joke!
1. She left her previous hubby for Shaq.
2. Marriage is a private affair and not the public's.
3. Women are quick to knock down a man on their wrong doing but when they do something wrong they always try to justify it.
Let's keep the playing field even.
Lastly stop judging people because there's no one on this earth that's perfect.

OMG. Is Shaq that insecure about himself. Think he just trying to steel Shaunie's shine. Stop hating Shaq, what about all the embarrasment he has caused her. It's ok for him to flaunt his jumpoff to the world but it's not ok if Shaunie speak the truth about their relationship. I think he's just jealous that she's moved on to the next with his money.

The show is full of ghetto drama anyway, so it needs to be shut down.
