Shaquille and Shaunie O’Neal are at odds over Shaunie’s new reality show, and HipHollywood has obtained EXCLUSIVE court documents explaining it all.
This morning, the Basketball Wives Executive Producer went to court to have a judge grant her permission to have her four children, with Shaq, on her new reality show, tentatively called “The Shaunie Project.” The VH1 show, which is slated to start production in January, will focus on her personal life and her kids.
Unfortunately, Shaq has refused to sign consent forms to have their four children on the show. The former NBA star believes the show will hurt his kids and show them as a dysfunctional family. Sources close to Shaunie tell us she wants to do the show to “finally show what her life is like as a single mom, and inspire other women struggling to raise their children and balance a career.”
According to the court docs, Shaunie believes Shaq doesn’t want to do the show because it will tarnish his image as a father and show that he is barely around his kids. Shaunie says that the children spend the summer with O’Neal but that he has attended “maybe one of our children’s birthday events this year.” What’s more, Shaunie says Shaq has missed 4 graduation events this year and in the past four years has attended “maybe four sporting events” that the kids are involved in.
Shaunie also writes in her declaration that Shaq was offered an Executive Producer credit on the show, and the opportunity to view the episodes before they aired to ensure that the show portrayed his children to his liking. Producers close to the show tell us Shaq agreed to sign the consent forms, but renigged only after VH1 wouldn’t agree to paying him $1 million for his participation.
Shaq is currently being represented by Laura Wasser. He and Shaunie are expected to be back in court January 28, 2014.
Cocktails & Coins! Inside Aisha Tyler’s Wild Life After Divorce & Departure From ‘The Talk’
Aisha Tyler went through a few MAJOR life changes over the past two years and now, the actress is back on top living life to the fullest.
In 2016, Tyler’s college love and husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, filed for divorce from the actress. As if that weren’t an emotional challenge to overcome, Tyler was then ordered to pay Tietjens $31,250 a month in spousal support for the next four years, plus a lump sum of $500k.
Following the emotional split, Tyler’s career then took a big turn when she walked away from CBS’s The Talk. Just eight months ago, the actress left the show to pursue other passions. “I also have three other series (Criminal Minds, hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway? and voicing a character on Archer),” the actress said during the big announcement. “People always go, ‘How do you do all that?’ And I don’t always have an answer.”
While it might sound like Tyler’s woes and 360 of a life might seem completely damaging, it all turned for the better. “The unknown can be very compelling and can be interesting. Instead of thinking about it as change, think about it as dynamism,” she told HipHollywood during the screening of Dwyane Wade’s, Shot in the Dark.
She explained, “You can’t stay the same, your life can’t stay the same. Staying the same is staying in place and staying in place is dying slowly. For me, I always reminded myself I’m not always going to feel this way, it’s not always going to be this tuff.”
“You cannot get through this experience on this planet without a little bit of pain and you need to know that and see that it’s temporary,” Aisha said. “My life is so interesting now and it wouldn’t have been without going through the stuff that I’ve been through. It’s been good for me; all this change.”
The actress is not only the star of some major network shows, but she also is about to launch her new cocktail line, Courage and Stone. “It’s been a really really exciting process,” she told us. “It really came out of my love of cocktails, my love of going to great bars and then going home and being like ‘I don’t know how to do all this.'”
Tyler then admitted that she was a whiskey girl at heart and that when she left the Talk “Julie Chen put me in a whiskey of the month club. She she’s doubled my collection in the last couple of months.”
Set to releae late spring early summer 2018.
