Shaunie O'Neal, the ex-wife of former basketball star Shaquille O'Neal, shared a part of her quarantine experience with her fans on Instagram and posted a new selfie. 


Being at home amid the quarantine necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic can feel so boring at times, with one repeating activities, or getting tired of seeing the same scenery every time. 

That is the bane of many people who are in isolation as part of the preventive measures to curb the spread of the deadly virus, while they hope for a cure to the disease, to enable them to go out freely.

Shaquille O'Neal's ex-wife, Shaunie, shared a selfie of herself while at home, giving her fans a peek into her quarantine life. 

The selfie showed the 45-year-old television personality posed in a way that looked as though she was tired with the lockdown experience. If her face didn't make it clear enough, her caption did, with Shaunie writing

"The other day in the living room, thinking about what room I'm gonna sit in next [emoji] #quarantinelife."


Many friends and fans of Shaunie commented on her post, with some laughing over her situation, while others advised her on what she could do for a change. 

A fan, in her comment, said that Shaunie could sit in the living room again if she had to, while another fan advised Shaunie to go and chill at the attic. 

Shaunie and the "Big Shaq" maintain a healthy relationship despite their split


Shaunie O'Neal was born in Wichita Falls, Texas, in 1975. She began dating the "Big Shaq" in 1998, two years after he separated from Arnetta Yardbourgh, the mother of his first child, Taahirah. 

The lovebirds got married in 2002 and remained so for the next seven years until they split in 2009. They share four children, while Shaunie also has a son, Myles, from a previous relationship.


After their divorce, Shaunie went into reality television, starring in VH1 reality television show, "Basketball Wives," as well as the show's spinoff, "Basketball Wives: LA."

She is currently an executive producer on both series, and another series, "Baller Wives." Shaunie also has another reality television series, "Shaunie's Home Court," which focuses on the lives of her children and family. 

Shaquille O'Neal enjoyed a successful NBA career, which began with him being the number one draft pick by the Orlando Magic in 1992. He went on to star for the LA Lakers, Miami Heats, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Boston Celtics afterward.

Shaunie and the "Big Shaq" maintain a healthy relationship despite their split and have excellently co-parented their children since then.
