SHAUNIE O'NEAL'S 'BASKETBALL WIVES' TO DEBUT ON VH1 IN APRIL!


In December 2009, Shaquille O'Neal's soon-to-be ex-wife Shaunie (read about their break-up on BlackCelebrityMen.blogspot.com!) inked a deal with VH1 to executive produce and star in a new reality series aptly titled, Basketball Wives. This series is about the insider life of the wives, girlfriends and a few ex-wives of some of the biggest ballers in the game. These ladies live the life. They drive the best cars, live in the biggest mansions, wear designer clothes and jewelry and only travel first class. But living the high life is not all glamour. In order to protect it, they have to deal with the jealousies and dramas of living in — and staying in — the inner circle. They must also keep the groupies at bay while their husbands and boyfriends are traveling on the road for over six months of the year playing ball all-the-while wondering if their spouses are being faithful to them.

The program promises a glimpse into the lives of women involved with or married to prominent NBA players, including Royce Reed, a former dancer for the Orlando Magic who has a son with one of the team's centers, Dwight Howard, Mesha O'Neal, wife of Miami Heat center Jermaine O'Neal, Evelyn Lozada (ex-fiancĂ© of Antoine Walker) and Faith Rain (Udonis Haslem’s girlfriend). Royce says, 'There's a stereotype that we are all sitting on our behinds drinking margaritas. Shaunie wants to break that. I wouldn't be doing the show if it weren't for Shaunie.'

“Having been around these remarkable women for several years, I have always recognized that behind every NBA star is a strong, exceptional woman, one who must deal with the unique challenges of being married to the game as well as the player. I am happy to be teaming with Shed Media and VH1 in bringing this entertaining and enlightening world to television,” stated Shaunie.

The eight-episode 30-minute series is set to premiere on Sunday, April 11, 2010!
