Shaunie O'Neal

Shut Down in Court

Score one for Shaq

EXCLUSIVE

Shaunie O'Neal was unconvincing this morning in court ... a judge just rejected her bid for an order allowing her to put her kids on a new reality show ... something ex-hubby Shaquille O'Neal is vehemently against.

Shaunie wanted the judge to rule in her favor without a hearing, but Shaq's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser convinced the judge there was no rush and a hearing was only fair ... but that takes time.

TMZ broke the story ... Shaq -- who has joint custody -- has been warring with Shaunie over the reality show, insisting ubiquitous cameras at home would be a terrible distraction for their 4 kids ... some of whom are already struggling in school. He's also worried the show will portray Shaunie and the kids in a negative light.

Shaunie has insisted the show will be wholesome family fun, but with scandal-hungry producers breathing down Shaunie's neck and her own cat-fighting track record on "Basketball Wives" ... Shaq isn't convinced.
 
Filming for the reality show is scheduled to begin in January ... so Shaunie's really under the gun.

Good for shaq....sick of all these so called stars who want everyone to respect their (or their child's) privacy, then trot them out like turkeys when they can benefit. These kids do NOT need this extra level or exposure. Kinda surprised shaunie did yhis, seemed more level headed on other issues.

Good for Shaq! Shaunie, please don't pimp out the kids! Don't you have enough money???? At least one parent is rational and looking out for what's best for the kids. Stand firm Shaq!
