Quote Of The Day: Shaq To Shaunie On Cheating “Okay, You’re Mad. Now What? You’re Not Going Anywhere”

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Divorces, News, Uncategorized

Shaunie O’Neal has finally decided to open up about her separation from Shaq and his infidelities.

Pop the top for details and pics from her new Essence Mag spread.

According to Shaunie, Shaq’s trade to Miami was the last straw that broke their marriage.  She says:

Miami is a great city. It just wasn’t a great city for our marriage. I know they say L.A. has its groupies, but Miami has a different mentality. Even going to the games, the whole environment is so different. Girls are practically sitting in their bra and panties in the arena. When you’re trying to keep your husband, that’s a lot to take. It was a whole new lifestyle I wasn’t ready for. Apparently we didn’t have a strong enough foundation for Shaq to withstand that type of temptation.

Shaunie on confronting Shaq about cheating:

He would deny it sometimes, and other times he would ask, ‘You got pictures? Video? If not, don’t come at me because you have no proof.’ “He’d say, ‘Okay, you’re mad. Now what? You’re not going anywhere.

On being accused of cheating on Shaq with her personal trainer:

I worked out at home- with my trainer, my sister, her husband and my girlfriend. I was a good girl. I wouldn’t even entertain a man flirting with me. I was that conservative. But when those rumors came out, I felt I was so small and Shaq was so big that it didn’t matter what I said; nobody was going to believe me. All I was thinking was, How could this happen to me? I had no idea how I was going to pick up the pieces. I was just done.

Shaunie on the state of her relationship with Shaq today:

We are becoming friends, and it’s nice because it’s something we really lacked in our marriage. I enjoy being able to talk openly to him, and I think we both learned a lot from each other during this time.

    Love Shaunie. She’s a real down chick. Shaq will realize very soon that the groupies weren’t worth his family. By then it will be too late. I do believe she cheated with her trainer though. There’s only so much a woman can take before she breaks. If I were her, I would have done it too, all the dirt Shaq was doing. Regardless she’s going to get that paper anyway!!!

      But what a lot of people don’t know is that Shaunie cheated on her first husband with Shaq. She’s not all that innocent.

    ^^^ i agree.these men need to learn that u cant let go of a good one for a million.keep the one in a million.

    i wonder whats there relationship with his mom bc from my experience with my ex he cheated alot.and his mom didnt really care to tell him that it was wrong and how to handle temptation.she just let him be.

    but with the guy im with now his mom AND grandmother had a hand in raising him and really instilled good values about how to treat women and being mature enough to handle a relationship.

    Ladies, we cant leave it all up to the men to raise our sons.how else would they learn how to treat a woman besides from their own?

    Reminds me of the Gotti’s

    and when I thought all the pro-ballers were stupid, one had to surprise me with a sign of intelligence. So, Shaq already new what his wife was about. He was right, what was she going to do, she loved the money and fame more than him. Thats probably why it took so long for her to leave him. Wow! I have a new found respect for this dude. Your not stupid after all. Yes Shaunie was down for something and someone….maybe her and her bank account? I don’t know, just speculating…..LOL

  • Stephy

    The reason they were not friend’s is because of the way she obtained a relationship with him. She was pregnant before they married; therefore, how much of a friendship could be developed. They probably married for the wrong reasons. I’m glad they can be civil because of the children, this is very important…kids don’t need their parents drama.

  • Marquis de Sade

    Uhhhh, excuse me, but Shaunie was married when she hooked up with Shaq while attendin’ the church where her (then) husband was the Deacon…Shaq cheatin’ on her is nothin’ more than KARMA!

  • 2Sweet

    @Marquis didn’t know that at all…where’d you hear that?


    The most profound point she made was they are becoming friends! Friendship is a true foundation for any relationship. Would you really do your friend wrong or really try and hurt your friend? If you answer yes then you really are not a friend to the person.

    Now Shaq and Shanie are becoming friends their relationship might just have a chance of surviving. Once the money and looks are gone, the only thing left is conversation and friendship. Think about marrying someone for money and the money goes away, what do yo have left. I hope and pray that when I am 103 years old I can still talk and have a wonderful conversation with my wife because at that point in life what will we have…

    I don’t know what their relationship was like before but if Shaq wants to spend the rest of his life humping groupies, so be it. I’m sure several of them will get pregnant and then Shaq’s fortune will slowly vanish. At least his ex wife stands a chance to getting a lump sum settlement.

  • memchee

    don’t know why she’s trying to sound so innocent….especially after Magic Johnson opened up about the lifestyle of a baller!

    she either knew or should have known what she was getting into.

    those rumors…the people around him work for him. So if she was caught gettin it in…she was just caught! At least it wasn’t one of his fellow ballers.

  • Candy Barr

    You can only tell they were having problems from Day 1: Don’t they have five kids together? The same thing went on with Eddie and Nicole Murphy, and happens in real life. Chicks don’t want to move on, and think having yet another child will make things fine. Ridiculous.
