Shaunie says she never loved Shaq/Dish Nation

Shaq’s ex trying to diss. 

Blog King, Mass Appeal

HOUSTON — Shaunie Henderson, ex-wife of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, raised eyebrows on Tuesday when she admitted she never loved her ex-husband. She basically called Shaq a simp. Shaunie, creator of VH1’s “Basketball Wives” reality series, divorced Shaq in 2011 for cheating. Then, she was awarded $20 million in a dissolution settlement coupled with child support. Fans called her a gold digger. Turns out, they were right. Shaunie dissed Shaq, 52, in her new memoir “Undefeated: Changing the Rules and Winning on My Own Terms.” The publication was released on May 7th. “Looking back, I don’t know that I was ever really in love with the man, but I was in love with the idea of being married to the man I had a family with,” Shaunie wrote. “I was in love with the idea of building a life together. I truly did enjoy spending time with him. [NBA] road trips gave me a chance to be with my husband and experience the NBA life for a little while.” Ouch! Shaunie said Shaq was a damn good father to their four children.

But she also knew he garnered mucho attention from hordes of beddable women.

Scuttlebutt has it, scantily clad popsies waited outside Shaq’s hotel room after games.

They were ready to give up the vulva.

“He was trying to be a world-famous, thirty-something multimillionaire with thousands of women throwing themselves at him, and people in general begging just to be in his presence, while being a husband and a father at the same time,” Shaunie wrote. “How could anyone possibly know how to do that?” After he found out what Shaunie wrote, Shaq replied, “I understand. I wouldn’t have been in love with me either.”

Shaunie, 49, married Pastor Keion Henderson, 43, in 2022. Even though he’s 6 years younger, they appear to be happy. Social media reaction was cold-blooded. One commenter wrote, “Quick question: Would we give one f*ck about Shaunie if she was never married to Shaquille O’Neal? That’s it. I’m done.” Another chimed in with, “Girl bye! You could have kept that to yourself.”

A third person added, “I don’t believe it. Having that many kids by Shaq and don’t love him? I don’t believe it.”

What’s my take?

Shaunie has lost her damn mind.

The reason she’s the creator of “Basketball Wives” is because she was married to a basketball player — Shaq.

The reason she possesses generational wealth is because of Shaq.

The only reason people will read her stupid book is because she wrote about Shaq.

Had she written strictly about Keion, nobody would buy it.

Let’s face it.

Shaunie is married to a boring pastor and, once again, she’s using Shaq’s celebrity for excitement and attention.

Right now, Shaq is bangin’ chicks who are much sexier than Shaunie.

Not to mention their youngest child just turned 18 which means no more child support.

By releasing the memoir, Shaunie is trying to cash in on Shaq’s name one more time.

It’s called gold digging.

Watch Shaunie and Shaq confabulate what went wrong.

  1. She was in love with the lifestyle. There are things you should just need to keep in private.

  2. This goes to show how society constantly goes out of its way to hate men. Can you imagine if Shaq said this about Shaunie?…the entire world would be trying to cancel Shaq right now.

  3. That just shows she was a gold digger. You supposed to marry FOR LOVE!!!!!!

  4. Crazy how she used this man for bread and clout den bash him as much chances as she gets

  5. Wait she don’t know if she was in love with Shaq didn’t she leave her husband for Shaq? Her husband was Shaq’s accountant or something…a legacy of basketball wives….girl

  6. I wonder how much basketball wifes would of popped if it was Henderson presenting it and not Shaq? She aint make shit. She just had one of the hottest baby daddies in the world who apparently she aint love but had 4 kids with

  7. Shaunie who would you be without shaquille o’neal a Nobody she is so Fake she look older

  8. 2 Timothy 3:1-5
    New International Version
    3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. This lady is married to another man, still was using SHAQ last name for NIL while in the portal, disrespecting her current husband, wolves in sheep clothing, Look up what happen to Jezebel and EVE

  9. Not everything needs to be spoken out loud, for the public’s consumption. I get that we’re in this trend of “everyone living their truth” but saying she doesn’t think she ever loved Shaq isn’t for the public’s ears, especially since they have kids together. What did she gain by that?

  10. She wouldn’t be an entrepreneur if it wasn’t for Shaq. She got in the door because he opened it. Fellas don’t get married.

  11. Does Shaunie discuss cheating on her first husband with Shaq? Having 3 kids before they got married? Treating Kobe’s wife like crap, creating a trash show that makes black women look like ignorant scum buckets all for profit. She maximized the O’Neal name for every dollar it was worth. Now she wants to inform the world that she was never really in love with him. Her book conveniently comes out when she is about to get her last child support check. The baby girl is 18 and graduating. Her last Oneal money grab is a book. The grift continues. He handled it with class!

  12. We know she wants to sell her books but she could have left that part out for the sake of her kids.

  13. @cora jones: Her husband is a broke pastor. He’s living off Shaq’s money.

  14. All them kids and she didn’t love him all them kids , that’s hard to believe. But who knows

  15. Why did she keep the last name of the man she didn’t love during her marriage and didn’t change after their divorce? The same reason she married him in the first place…. Mike Tyson & Robin Givens-ish… Status & money.

    When you have his money at such a young age, knowing most are around because of it, maybe he never believed she loved him either… based on her superficial,mean girl behavior over the years, he dodged a bullet. How you get him is how you loose him.

  16. I think they both knew what it was. She married him for his fortune and
    HE KNEW what she wanted.

  17. Everybody loves shaq. How can you not? She thought she was doing something smart, but all she did was expose herself, and embarrassed her family. Been rockin with shaq since LSU. Since Orlando, and Penny Hardaway. He’s a good-hearted giant who has made mistakes but you didn’t love him anyway so none of it mattered.

  18. lol she was married to another man when SHE left him for Shaq….NOT surprised

  19. Baby why are y’all mad Shaq admitted he wasn’t worthy of her love and clearly neither truly loved each other, but decided to marry and have a family like every other affluent couple.. she just said it ..did she have to No, but we all know what it is at the end of the day. They now have publicly humiliated each other and it’s ok.

  20. I cheated too, but that’s after I found out that my ex was cheating on me while I was in Afghanistan defending the country. ️

  21. How stupid does this sound, “I’m in love with being in love”, with someone I NEVER loved.

  22. Anyone still wondering why these rich athletes don’t want to marry black women anymore? Even the passport bros are moving abroad to avoid American Black Women.
