You want to know how Stella got her groove back?

It sure wasn’t sitting around waiting for her ex to do right by her. Just ask Basketball Wives executive producer, Shaunie O’Neal – who’s all about getting what’s  rightfully hers.  (more…)

Retired basketball player Shaquille O’Neal has been making the rounds in an effort to promote his new book, “Shaq Uncut: My Story“.

On Wednesday night he took it to a whole new level on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Shaq’s 5’2” girlfriend, Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander carried the 7’1″ former NBA player across the stage — in heels! Needless to say, this didn’t end well but no one got hurt.

See the video below.


We have to give props to Hoopz for that incredible feat. Anyone who doubts a woman’s physical strength just got served.

On November 15th, the most dominant NBA player of our time, Shaquille O’Neal, will be releasing a tell all book entitled Shaq Uncut:My story. With the help of author Jackie Macmullan, Shaq Diesel speaks on a few NBA players, his love for Halle Berry & more! Here are some snippets:

On what really kicked off the Kobe Bryant feud

So I’m on edge because I don’t have a new deal, and Kobe is on edge because he might be going to jail, so we’re taking it out on each other. Just before the start of the ’03-’04 season the coaching staff called us in and said, “No more public sparring or you’ll get fined.” … Phil was tired of it. Karl Malone and Gary Payton were sick of it. … So what happens? Immediately after that Kobe runs right out to Jim Gray and does this interview where he lets me have it. He said I was fat and out of shape. He said I was milking my toe injury for more time off, and the injury wasn’t even that serious. (Yeah, right. It only ended my damn career.) He said I was “lobbying for a contract extension when we have two Hall of Famers playing pretty much for free.” I’m sitting there watching this interview and I’m gonna explode. Hours earlier we had just promised our coach we’d stop. It was a truce broken. I let the guys know, “I’m going to kill him.”

On LeBron James being allowed to do WHATEVER he wanted in Cleveland

LeBron was a huge star. He was as big as I was in 2000 in L.A. when I was dominating the league. … Our coach, Mike Brown, was a nice guy, but he had to live on edge because nobody was supposed to be confrontational with LeBron. Nobody wanted him to leave Cleveland, so he was allowed to do whatever he wanted to do.

I remember one day in a film session LeBron didn’t get back on defense after a missed shot. Mike Brown didn’t say anything about it. He went to the next clip and it was
Mo Williams not getting back and Mike was saying, “Yo, Mo, we can’t have that. You’ve got to hustle a little more.”

So Delonte West is sitting there and he’s seen enough and he stands up and says, “Hold up, now. You can’t be pussyfooting around like that. Everyone has to be accountable for what they do, not just some us.” Mike Brown said, “I know, Delonte. I know.” Mike knew Delonte was right. …

On Loving Halle Berry

I remember being in the dorm room one night and we were watching the movie Jungle Fever with Halle Berry in it, and I thought she was so stunning, so I wrote her a letter. I was just kind of kidding around, telling her I was a big fan and I’d love to meet her sometime. The guys totally goofed on me for doing it, but I didn’t care. A few weeks later, no lie, Halle Berry wrote me back. She sent me a signed picture that I still have hanging in my office. Turns out she’s a basketball fan. She wrote, “I’m a big fan of yours, too. I can’t wait until you get to the NBA.”

On stacking his money as a retired baller

“They’ve already got some things cooking in Hollywood for me. Adam Sandler called me in June 2011 and said, “I want you to be in some of my movies.”

I’ve stayed fairly low-key about what I own. For instance, out of the fifteen twenty-four-hour fitness places I own, only three have my name on it. None of the Five Guys I own have my name on it. None of the clubs I own in Vegas, either.

It is alleged that retired NBA basketball star, Shaquille O’ Neal had devised a plan to carry out hits on several people, including a well-known record producer, a gang member, and a woman that Shaq had impregnated.

As previously reported on MSDTV, Shaq has been under fire for supposedly being involved in a series of kidnappings, hits, (lost) sex tapes, etc.  The man responsible for these accusations goes by the name of Robert Ross, an ex-gang member and former friend of O’ Neal.  Ross claims that Shaq brought these requests to him in 2008, masterminding the entire thing.  Documents were filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, as Ross states,

“For many years O’Neal requested and directed [Ross] to perform many personal favors and directed him to perform various tasks including, but not limited to: ordering [Ross] to kill a member of the Downtown Gangster Crips who had disrespected O’Neal in front of his wife Shaunie.”

Ross is also accusing Shaq of ordering him to kill a woman who had become impregnated with O’Neal’s baby, in addition to breaking another NBA player’s shooting arm, and carrying out a hit on a popular record producer.

Shaq’s attorney is quoted in The L.A. times as saying the accusations are “outlandish” and “pure fiction”.  Which is understandable – the “blame game” set up by Ross is very hard to believe, however, in previous years, Shaq has been rumored to have his own personal squad who simply “took care of his business”.  O_o  No criminal charges have been served yet – as it could go either way; straight to court, or Shaq may have to pay up some money to keep his “business” quiet.

MSDTV will keep you posted on this story…
