Liza was previously in a relationship with Lamar Odom

While speaking to HollywoodLife, the TV personality revealed why the 41-year-old fits in to the cast of the VH1 show.

Shaunie told the outlet: “I’ve known Liza for a while, but I think Liza is just kind of doing Liza right now, in real life.

“You know, she’s just making some changes for her personally and trying new things, and she reached out about doing Basketball Wives.”

The Basketball Wives star continued: “She has a great, great story.

“She’s extremely relatable to a single parent, a single mom. So I mean, she has a great story to tell that people can relate to. And also, she’s kind of just testing out the waters to see if this is something that she wants to do.”

Shaunie, who was previously married to Shaquille O’Neal from 2002-2011, also teased Liza’s upcoming storyline on the reality show.

She told the outlet: “I think that she is definitely telling a story of a single mom that still has a dad in the picture that’s been a little toxic to her personal lifestyle, and her personal, her living experiences, her living life.

“She’s been kind of wrapped up in his world so much when it pertains to their kids, that it’s definitely hindered her in her personal world.”

Liza and Lamar, 41, share children Destiny, 21, and Lamar Jr.,19, together.

They tragically lost their son Jayden in 2006 when he passed away from sudden infant death syndrome at just six-months-old.

The retired basketball player was married to Khloe Kardashian from 2009-2016

The former couple split shortly after Jayden’s death due to the professional athlete’s infidelity.

Lamar was later in a high profile relationship with Khloe Kardashian, who he was married to from 2009-2016.

The retired athlete appeared alongside his ex-wife on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, while they also starred in the spinoff Khloe & Lamar together from 2011-2012.

While Liza and Lamar called it quits 15 years ago, the new reality star hasn’t been shy about publicly shading her ex.

Back in October, Liza took to social media to accuse Lamar of owing her college tuition money for their son. 

Liza wrote at the time: “Let’s get to the real … wher is LJ (Lamar Jr’s) college money??? We have been asking for it.”
