Shaunie Henderson has been through major changes in life since her marriage to her new husband, Pastor Keion Henderson. Before getting remarried, Shaunie was in a seven-year marriage with Shaquille O’Neal. During her relationship with the Los Angeles Lakers legend, Shaunie Henderson earned fame as a reality TV star on the popular show, Basketball Wives. The 48-year-old is also an executive producer of the show, with spin-offs like ‘Basketball Wives Miami’ and ‘Basketball Wives LA.’ However, after years of success in the reality TV industry, Shaunie has taken up new responsibilities as a pastor’s first lady. Her latest project recently left the Shaquille O’Neal fandom displeased due to the vast difference in culture between her past and current endeavors.

Shaunie got married to Pastor Keion Henderson in May last year. Since then, she starred in her VH1 wedding special, organized the CRYOUT conference with her husband, and partnered with him on a new podcast. However, her recent reality TV production gave way to criticism among the fans.
