Shaunie O'Neal turns heads in tight off-shoulder red dress after ex Shaq showed off his new woman
Her ex-husband debuted his new woman last month, but Shaunie O’Neal looked unbothered while flaunting her hot body and talking about “business” in a recent picture.
The “Basketball Wives” executive producer/star, who was married to retired NBA legend, Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal, stunned in a sexy red dress on Instagram.
The off-shoulder outfit, clinging to every curve on her body, boasted a ruched pattern and low neckline that could hardly contain Shaunie’s cleavage.
Sticking to the red theme with her nails and lipstick, the mom-of-five set off her dress with a gold bangle and let her hair fall around her shoulders in soft waves.
The photo seemed to have been taken at some upscale bar while Shaunie, 44, looked intently at her phone.
“Business will ALWAYS get handled!” the boss lady declared in the caption.
SHAQ'S NEW LADY
If Shaunie heard that her ex-husband and the father of her children had moved on to his latest in a long list of romantic partners, she didn't seem to show it.
Shaq, 46, was pictured out and about in New York City last month, holding hands with “Chicago Fire” actress, Annie Ilonzeh, 35.
The pair did not look like they were trying to hide their relationship and even though not much is known about how they met or when they started dating, the two looked pretty comfortable with each other.
The sports analyst went with a casual look in black pants and an orange print jacket. Meanwhile, Annie looked more glamorous in her brown coat and what appeared to be a burgundy sheer top and silk pants.
END OF THE "SHAQ-SHAUNIE" ERA
Shaq and Shaunie’s marriage officially ended in 2011, nine years after their wedding and two years after she filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences amid allegations of infidelity on his part.
Shaunie previously opened up about finding out her husband was cheating in an episode of “Basketball Wives” and according to Dailymail.com, in his 2011 memoir, “Shaq Uncut: My Story,” the former athlete confessed:
“I was a guy with too many options. Choosing to be with some of those women, well, that's on me. In my mind, I never did it disrespectfully, but obviously I shouldn't have done it all. You know as well as I do relationships are about maintaining... It wasn't the big stuff, it was the small stuff, and that's my fault.”
SHAQ HINTS AT SECOND CHANCES
Moving past their turbulent romantic history, Shaq and Shaunie have become friends and continue to co-parent their children, budding basketball player Shareef, 19, Amirah, 17, Shaqir, 15, Me’arah, 12, and Shaunie’s son from a previous relationship, Myles, 21.
The big guy tried his luck last year, hinting at a possible reconciliation, but Shaunie wasted no time shooting him down.
Sharing an Instagram picture of himself in a suit, Shaq said: “This is the same suit I’m wearing when I marry [Shaunie].”
The reality star took to the comment section to remind him they’d been on that road before.
“Actually this suit is more fitting for next season’s star of The Bachelor on @abcnetwork #justsayin #wedidthatalready.”
Between his breakup with Shaunie and the new lady on the block, Annie, Shaq has dated several women, including reality star Nikki “Hoopz” Alexander and model/lifestyle blogger Laticia Rolle, who he broke up with last year.
