The reality show filmed by Shaquille and Shaunie O’Neal before their marriage took a decisive turn last week may find its way to at least one network still willing to give it a chance.
Earlier this year, the couple had shopped a show called “Love Shaq.” The difference between other reality romances and this couple is that those other unions were at least still in tact as the seasons aired; the O’Neal marriage has fallen apart before the show could even be sold.
Shaunie filed for legal separation on Nov. 9 citing irreconcilable differences. In addition to asking for an unspecified amount of money for spousal and child support, Shaunie is also seeking sole custody of the couple’s four children, ages 3 to 9, with visitation rights for O’Neal.
A&E confirmed they had seen the “Love Shaq” pilot, according to TMZ, and are said to be still “considering” whether or not to purchase the show.
Here are some other reality romance couples who have been cursed.
