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.

I saw the show it was a joke. I could not believe his ex was on there. I believe it is stirctly for revenge. One of the girl's who is suppose to be one of the "wives" or girlfriend's in the show's title said her sister is suppose to be dating Shaq and Shaq's said she and the girl had tention but could still get along what kind of crap is this, this show is strictly for revenge. Surly she can do something much better with her time. I thought she was way more classy than that.

I have to agree with him! I mean yes he cheated and all but you knew what you was getting into and that’s the Father of your children. I think to air out your dirty laundry on National Television is not right, especially since the children and their friends are old enough to watch. How embarrassing to hear about your Dad being a cheater etc.



Didn’t she get like 35 million dollars come on, you couldn’t produce a more positive show or business? And the other ladies oh don’t get me started, what the F? Why should who you use to be with define you? Why not make a name for yourself because of your own accomplishments! That I’m married to I use to be engaged to damn start with I’m such and such and I’ve accomplished …….. I’m just saying!

I don't care what you think about Shaq or Shaunie...the fact is, they had an agreement of confidentiality. And for good reason. They have children who can read the damn internet! Why would either of them purposely put their lives in the public's eye when they know all kinda rude azz comments will erupt! Shaq was smart enough to protect not just his name, but his family name. Shaunie on the other hand can give a damn. She's gonna be a millionaire as a result of a divorce settlement...but NOoooo that's not enough. She needs to sit down and raise those 5 kids. Because if they're reading any of this stuff, they're starting to hate the hell outta her. Even those dam text msgs were leaked by her. She's a joke. And the pics in People mag were posed...she probably sold those to them....keep it real she started off a whore (cheating on her first Husband Daven Baptiste with at least Shaq) and now she's turning into a media whore. Money hungry is as money hungry does....That's evolution!

By the way...look for Shaq to also have his attorneys send a little "warning letter" to People Mag and Essence Mag. She's either stupid as hell or forgetful....I am split on which one it is. If VH1 doesn't respond, his attorneys will surely file an injunction to prevent airing until there is a hearing....TRANSLATION: Game Over Groupies!!!

ALSO, don't get married if your going to cheat, PERIOD. Don't get married if it's TRULY something that you DON'T want to do. You have to live for you.
