Shaquille O'Neal Writes Tell-All About His Money, HATING Kobe & LOVING Halle Berry + Brandy Added To "The Marriage Counselor" Cast

Shaquille O'Neal may not play professional basketball anymore, but with the release of his upcoming tell-all Shaq Uncut: My Story, he proves he can still unleash a "Shaq Attack." Get the deets on what he had to say about Kobe Bryant and LeBron James inside. Also, find out what movie Brandy started shooting today.

 

Shaquille O'Neal just released a "Shaq Attack" in the form of a new autobiography called Shaq Uncut: My Story. Co-written with author Jackie MacMullan, the book (due Nov. 15) is raising eyebrows thanks to Shaq's candid talk about certain NBA players.  Here are some snippets:

On what really kicked off the Kobe Bryant feud

So I'm on edge because I don't have a new deal, and Kobe is on edge because he might be going to jail, so we're taking it out on each other. Just before the start of the '03-'04 season the coaching staff called us in and said, "No more public sparring or you'll get fined." ... Phil was tired of it. Karl Malone and Gary Payton were sick of it. ... So what happens? Immediately after that Kobe runs right out to Jim Gray and does this interview where he lets me have it. He said I was fat and out of shape. He said I was milking my toe injury for more time off, and the injury wasn't even that serious. (Yeah, right. It only ended my damn career.) He said I was "lobbying for a contract extension when we have two Hall of Famers playing pretty much for free." I'm sitting there watching this interview and I'm gonna explode. Hours earlier we had just promised our coach we'd stop. It was a truce broken. I let the guys know, "I'm going to kill him."

On LeBron James being allowed to do WHATEVER he wanted in Cleveland

LeBron was a huge star. He was as big as I was in 2000 in L.A. when I was dominating the league. … Our coach, Mike Brown, was a nice guy, but he had to live on edge because nobody was supposed to be confrontational with LeBron. Nobody wanted him to leave Cleveland, so he was allowed to do whatever he wanted to do.

I remember one day in a film session LeBron didn’t get back on defense after a missed shot. Mike Brown didn’t say anything about it. He went to the next clip and it was Mo Williams not getting back and Mike was saying, “Yo, Mo, we can’t have that. You’ve got to hustle a little more.”  

So Delonte West is sitting there and he’s seen enough and he stands up and says, “Hold up, now. You can’t be pussyfooting around like that. Everyone has to be accountable for what they do, not just some us.” Mike Brown said, “I know, Delonte. I know.” Mike knew Delonte was right. …

On Loving Halle Berry

I remember being in the dorm room one night and we were watching the movie Jungle Fever with Halle Berry in it, and I thought she was so stunning, so I wrote her a letter. I was just kind of kidding around, telling her I was a big fan and I'd love to meet her sometime. The guys totally goofed on me for doing it, but I didn't care. A few weeks later, no lie, Halle Berry wrote me back. She sent me a signed picture that I still have hanging in my office. Turns out she's a basketball fan. She wrote, "I'm a big fan of yours, too. I can't wait until you get to the NBA."

On stacking his money as a retired baller

"They've already got some things cooking in Hollywood for me. Adam Sandler called me in June 2011 and said, "I want you to be in some of my movies."

I've stayed fairly low-key about what I own. For instance, out of the fifteen twenty-four-hour fitness places I own, only three have my name on it. None of the Five Guys I own have my name on it. None of the clubs I own in Vegas, either.

 

But I wonder will he address Shaunie, Laura Govan, and all that drama.  That's all we really want to know more about anyway.

 

And look who has a new job:

Brandy, who is currently guest starring on "90210," has been added to the cast of Tyler Perry's The Marriage Counselor. Earlier today, she tweeted,

First day on the set of Tyler Perry's new movie "The Marriage Counselor"!!! God is sooooooo Good!!!

Hmmm.....with Kim Kardashian also appearing in the film, I wonder if Tyler fixed the schedules so that the two don't run into each other?  We ALL know the Norwood family isn't a big fan of the Kardashians...especially after a few lawsuits got tossed around between the two of them....

I think Shaq is one of the most honest guys when it comes to telling how the NBA really is. He is not concerned about hurt feelings. Glad to see Brandy back acting, while I think she is a great singer, we all know if your not selling Sex when your singing you don't get the appropriate amount of shine. However, I think she is an even better actress. Get em Bran!

Ive always liked Shaq on and

Ive always liked Shaq on and off the court. His personality has always been a shining point for me. However with any 'tell all' book, ur goin to hear about past situations which affected that persons life at that time. While its old, I'm sure a lot of ppl that are not so in tune to the beef between him and Kobe would be interested in reading why there was. Plus its a lockout, perfect time for a book surrounding one of basketball beloved retired players to generate some non-existent basketball talk outside of lockout negotiations. Luv Brandy and glad to see her getting back on the movie scene.

Glad to see Brandy getting

Glad to see Brandy getting back into acting. She's easing her way back in on t.v and movies. She's only one of the top 25 child stars of all time. You've never heard anything about her going broke. She still making money from her sitcoms. I don't understand why BET'd rather play "The Parkers" over "Moesha" but Brandy's getting paid every time they do anyway because it's a spinoff of "Moesha." Brandy was ruling most 90's in music, t.v, movies, endorsements etc. People can actually make a ton of money and be smart with it. I know it's shocking, but it's true. Lamont Bently who played Hakeem on "Moesha" was worth $21mil when he died, and people wouldn't have guessed that. Brandy's mom said she was set for life after her first album. Just because you don't see celebs as much as you used to doesn't meant they're not doing well. There are celebs that you see all the time who are dead broke because they don't know how to manage or handle their money.

OMG, Shaq needs to go sit his big dumb arse down somewhere, I couldn't take him serious writing in that elementary arse diction. Glad to hear Brandy was casted for Tyler Perry's film but I need him to cast some real actors who do it for a living, I'm just sayin. And the pic of Brandy is NOT THE BUSINESS, EWWWWW.

As much as we want to defend

As much as we want to defend these pop starlets, any person under 50 who doesn't have the desire to keep growing in their career, if they truly love it, has no passion for the job and are just plain lazy. I am pretty sure, Brandy was searching for a while to get her foot back in the door. Of course, we know she has made money & still has money, but I don't think she worked so hard for so long, to just have it taken away before the age of 30. Yes she is well beyond 30 now. But, I am just saying.

I love Brandy to death...but these wigs she's come to love DO NOT suit her. She has the face of a woman who should rock natural hair, shorter hair, or braids (her signature). She needs to stop doing what all these other chicks are doing and cultivate her own look (like she did when she was 15). Just sayin...

I don't think Shaq is jealous

I don't think Shaq is jealous of Kobe at all. Shaq has had his day when he dominated the league--like Kobe has. Kobe is 6 years younger, so of course he is still playing at a high level. Kobe's a punk azz bitch with a shrew of a wife who thinks his shit don't stink. When in actuality, he is a social retard who can't understand why nobody likes him. Heck of a basketball player, but a punk bitch in every other area of his life. I would be interested in reading this book whether Shaq talks about his cheating, Shaunie or not.
