Shaunie O’Neal has landed a VH1 wedding special documenting her marriage to pastor Keion Henderson and according to TJB‘s sources, “the limited wedding series will air on VH1 and will feature some of the ladies from “Basketball Wives” (both past and present) in the bridal party.”
Last November news broke that after two years of dating Shaunie O’Neal’s boyfriend Pastor Keion Henderson proposed to her. The “Basketball Wives” executive producer confirmed the engagement news via her IG and simply said; “1 Corinthians LOVE NEVER FAILS [red heart emoji] 11/11/11”.
This will be the first time that a “Basketball Wives” spin-off wedding special airs on VH1. However, Evelyn Lozada, 46, did almost have her own wedding spin-off as well.
According to reports, “Basketball Wives” alum Evelyn Lozada previously scored an 8-episode special with VH1 that documented her wedding to Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, 44, back in 2012, but they never went through with the wedding.
Shaq recently spoke out about how he was the one that messed up their marriage.
Shaq rarely talks about what led to his divorce from Shaunie O’Neal, but the guys on the PIVOT got him to open up about that relationship.
What happened to Shaq had happened to many athletes, especially when they were young and in their prime.
“I never talked about this and I’m glad you guys asked, but I was bad,” explained O’Neal. “She was awesome and I was really bad. I wasn’t protecting her and I wasn’t protecting those vows. She did exactly what she was supposed to do.
“The best feeling was coming home and hearing five or six different voices. I was just being greedy. I had the perfect situation. Wife was finer than a mug. I had it all. I don’t make excuses. I know I messed up. I was lost. In a 76,000 square foot house by myself. Lost…I said to myself, you’re not married, but you still need to provide for this family. Get your ass up and man up. What are you going to do next?”
