The family says they are standing by Phil and aren't sure where the show will go from here. "We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E's decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word."
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.
