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.

Give me a break!! Shaq you were the worst husband on the planet and everyone already knows. Shaunie couldn't say anything nearly as bad as all the adultery you committed during your marriage. Don't worry though there is an endless amount of ho's still willing to be with your sleazy self. So it is not like your big reputation is ruined the world already knows you are a s***bag and a womanizer with an over blown ego. You can't control the truth so if Shaunie speaks her mind more power to her!! She deserves to tell the truth about you after all you put her through.

I watched this big tub of **** single handily lose the championship for Orlando because he couldn't sink a couple of free throws. Then he comes here to Los Angeles and is given a record setting contract and our ticket prices go up. Dude can't make a shot from more than 5 feet from the bucket and he calls himself "Superman". Give me a freakn break!! Kobe always has been better and ALWAYS will be better than this meat sack. There's a rwason he's bounced around to 5 different teams. He's a cancer.

I am a woman and I must agree with Shaq on this one...She did her dirt and he didn't go public with it. So, she needs to pipe down and keep her mouth shut about their relationship. What comes around goes around...

the show is about ex's wives/girlfriend bashing their athlete ex's. Most whom probably slept with backup cheerleaders/groupies...



men are all cheaters, if you put your boob in a mans face he wont turn his face he'd do exactly what Tiger Woods did. They can't resist temptations...
