Shaq's Ex-Wife


Kobe & Vanessa

2/23/2012 2:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Not everyone hates Kobe Bryant's wife ... in fact, she has a pretty big fan in Shaunie O'Neal -- Shaq's ex-wife -- who tells TMZ she "LOVES" that the Bryants seem to be reconciling.

Shaunie -- the executive producer of VH1's "Basketball Wives" -- was leaving MyStudio last night when we asked about the photo of Kobe and Vanessa kissing after a recent Lakers game. 

"I think it's wonderful ... too much energy to be angry ... some situations are worse than others, but I love it."

TMZ broke the story ... Vanessa filed for divorce back in December ... but we're told Kobe is trying like hell to win her back.

Shaunie has spent A LOT of time around the Bryants over the years ... especially Vanessa ... since Shaq spent 8 years as Kobe's teammate on the L.A. Lakers.

YOU ARE THE REASON SHAQ ALWAYS CHEATED ON YOU. STUPID DUMB WOMAN! Yeah stay with a man who cheats every other day. He will be a good DOG for a hot minute until things calm down a little and a few diamonds later, he will pull out his little black shlong and stick it in some more dirty bit&ches. A lifetime of being cheated on in return baby, you get more money, diamonds and my dirty penis that Ive stuck in dirty groupies. SHAQS wife needs to keep her ugly mouth shut.

Ha..ha...Shaq HATES Kobe! Kobe ratted him out when Kobe was arrested for rape. He told the cops "Why can't I just pay her off the way Shaq does"?

Didn't Shaq file for divorce from this creatin after he found out she was embezzling his money...yes HIS money. Shaq had a prenup, unlike that low I.Q. knuckle dragger Kobe Bryant.

I hope Kobe and and his ghetto blaster get back together and are miserable for the rest of their lives. A nice house, a nice car, nice clothes and money to burn do not make for a happy marriage. Love, mutual respect, trust, faith and dignity make for a happy marriage. The Bryants have NONE of these qualities.

A husband who loves his wife does not rape and does not cheat with 105 other women.

Hold on...Kobe is "trying like hell to win (Vanessa) her back"? Why does he want a wife if he's busy sleeping with other women?

Once a cheater always a cheater. Kobe only wants his stuff back, she is stupid for even considering getting back with him. And who cares what Shaunie thinks?

All you igonorant idiots that are constantly saying Kobe raped that whore is Colorado, I don't know what planet you live on, but it was proven that the B! was a lying whore. Her own friends ratted her out about boasting about being with Kobe and talkng about his anatomy. All she wanted was money, like most loose women in this country! Don't hate on Kobe because he got talent, money & good looks, hating will get you just where you are -NOWHERE! All men are cheaters, whether rich or broke, and I imagine it's much worst to be with a broke cheating idiot, who can even provide for himself much more his lady!
