Shaunie O'Neal is making her living off of other Basketball Wives' stories on her popular reality show. But her ex-husband Shaq is not about letting his own family's story become the plot for Shaunie's new VH1 reality show, "The Shaunie Project".
Shaunie made a bid to get a judge to grant her permission to feature her kids on reality TV. The kids have never appeared on Basketball Wives because Shaq is adamantly against the show and won't allow it.
The exes, who share joint custody, have been arguing over the intrusion of reality cameras for years. Shaq insists a show would be a distraction for their four minor children (some of whom aren't doing well in school according to TMZ) while Shaunie is in favor of featuring them on the new show. Shaq is also concerned the show could negatively impact his kid's reputation by featuring them in a "negative light".
The two recently got engaged and Lauren is suddenly ready to be a Mrs. That wouldn't have anything to do with the Manzo fam finally being offered that spinoff they've been campaigning for, would it? Not. At. All.
With Manzo'd With Children filming now, planning a wedding and all the drama that comes with it is the perfect segue to attract viewers. But Lauren insists her reason for saying Yes to Vito's proposal (the two have been rumored to be secretly engaged for years, BTW), was that she finally embraced the idea of change. Ok, then.
One person who is relieved is the ever-publicity seekingKris Jenner, who is probably already figuring out a way to spin this into another reality show, or possibly a Khloe Is Single spinoff! Maybe Khloe could be the next Bachelorette!
Despite the bad news, Khloe is doing fine according to Kris. "Khloé really is so great. She's strong and…the good news is that she's busy and you know, keeps her real busy. But she's good," the Keeping Up With The Kardashians pimpmomager tells E! News.
On this week's episode of Real Housewives of AtlantaCynthia gave us a glimpse into some of the extreme trust issues their relationship has and with everything from family being against the marriage to serious money woes, it's no surprise the couple almost didn't last!
Cynthia admits that living with fibroids, which she had removed this season, were so intense it almost destroyed her relationship and that if she hadn't had surgery Peter would have been out the door. Apparently "In sickness and in health" is like a vanity vow or something…
Yesterday Joe was spotted in court alone so attorneys could determine whether or not his identity fraud trial should take place before or after his federal trial for fraud. Decisions, decisions! Noticeably absent (as she always is) was Teresa!
“They are having problems. It is almost impossible for a marriage to survive all this stress,” a friend confides to Naughty But Nice Rob. “We are praying for them, but it does not look good."
Lisa Vanderpump was accused of being the "vacation police" for confiscating a bottle of wine Brandi was guzzling from. But she also got yelled at by Kim Richards for being dismissive of her. I agree Lisa is kind of flippant where Kim is concerned. In her Bravo blog Lisa recounts the events and explains her behaviors.
Lisa defended Kyle Richards against Brandi's drunken comments because she knew Kyle was fragile in that moment. "Kyle was not in the frame of mind to defend herself, and I knew I had to say something with out antagonizing her."
"Kyle was emotional that weekend, once again investing in another tabloid story that had reared its ugly head. This one I believed was even more ridiculous. However Kyle always gives them more credence than they deserve, almost engulfing herself in the negative emotion of it all. Ignore it and this too shall pass!"
