Shaquille O'Neal's former wife, Shaunie, looked flawless as she flaunted a natural look. The post showed the reality TV star with no makeup on, and her curly natural hair fell loosely to one side of her face.
The onscreen diva continues to reach out to her fans via Instagram amid the new coronavirus pandemic. She subscribed to using the platform to keep her followers updated with information about her engagements as she self-quarantines.
24-hours ago, the ex-wife of the former basketball champion sought help from her online audience regarding the best hair product that will suit her hair.
Shaunie explained that she's heading to "Target" her "favorite" store and concluded with a few hashtags that addressed the global health crisis. She wrote:
"I finally took my braids out, and running to my favorite store @target (drive up pick up) to tackle this hair! What products are you using? HELP...I Need Advice..."
As expected, fans began writing hair products and recommendations. Amid the testimonies and advice, some noticeably commented on the natural glow of the T.V personality.
The "Basketball Wives" star is no longer with her ex-husband, who was a former basketball star, but she and a host of other women who aren't with their "sports star" partners continue to feature on the show which is in its 12th season.
For the O'Neals, a family isn't only by blood but by the closure and shared experiences.
Some viewers are, however, not wowed by the peculiar dramas by the casts on-air; their concern is the status of the casts; whether they are currently actual "Basketball Wives" or not. A news outlet reported Shaunie's reaction to the critics. She said:
"Everybody's not a wife, but you know we've been divorced, we've been married, we've been engaged, been a baby mama, whatever it is...let's just not be petty."
She wasn't the only one who expressed her frustration, another cast member, Evelyn Lozada sarcastically presented the trolls with possible names for the show. Off-screen, Shaunie, who shares four kids with her ex, is an incredible mother. Both parents have also adopted a suitable method of co-parenting.
When one of her sons, Shareef O'Neal, underwent heart surgery, Shaquille and his ex were present to support their son all through. The younger Shareef later tattooed a perfect image of his mother on his body. This act left the "Basketball Wives" actress speechless, and she posted the tattooed arm online.
For the O'Neals, a family isn't only by blood but by the closure and shared experiences. They are forever intertwined with the family of the deceased Kobe Bryant as both Bryant and Shaquille played on the same basketball team.
