During the premiere episode of VH1′s Basketball wives, which features Shaquille O’neal‘s ex Shaunie, it was evident that Shaq wasn’t feeling the show after he made a point to draw viewers away with his antics.
Shaunie O’neal is executive producer of the show, which delves into the lives of several NBA exes but Shaq recently sent out a “cease & desist” to prevent further use of his name!
In the letter below, Shaq demands that VH1 immediately halt production on “any further episodes of ‘Basketball Wives‘ which make any reference to Mr. O’Neal.”

Shaq’s lawyer claims Shaunie signed a confidentiality agreement at some point in their relationship — so if she says anything about Shaq on TV, she and the production company will find their asses in court.
The first episode of the show already ran last week and show #2 — which reportedly features a scene centered around Shaunie’s relationship with Shaq — is scheduled to run Sunday. Sources close to the show tell us it’s unclear whether or not the next episode will make air. (source)
