Shaunie is the ex wife of professional basketball superstar Shaquille O’Neal.
The couple was married from 2002 to 2011, and share four children, Shareef, Shaqir, Amirah, and Me’arah O’Neal, though they each have an additional child from a previous relationship.

Shaq’s attorney reportedly wrote to VH1 to stop his ex-wife from speaking about their marriage on television, but this did not stop her from doing so.
The television personality is one of the executive producers for VH1’s Basketball Wives, following wives, ex-wives, and girlfriends of professional basketball players.
The Sun recently reported that Shaunie is the richest cast-member, as she both produces and stars in the program.
According to TV Showcasts the reality star has an accumulated net worth of $35 million.
