Shaunie O'Neal Teases a 'Destination Wedding' – and Will She Invite the 'Basketball Wives' Cast? [Exclusive]

“[And] I think the ladies know who I am genuinely friends with,” O’Neal continued. “And most of us are co-workers that respect each other. Maybe some ladies on this season, I’ve never been in their presence in person. But you know, we have a respect for each other … Instagram, things like that. We’re cool. I’m cool with everybody. But I think that your wedding, at least mine, is for an intimate, real friendship. People who genuinely love you, genuinely know you. And that’s what I save those invites for.”

Shaunie O’Neal’s destination wedding revealed

O’Neal wouldn’t name the destination during the interview but said putting together all the moving parts is definitely stressful. “I’m sure I have a lot more grey hairs than I’d like to have!” she said. “But it is what it is. It’s gonna be great, and beautiful. But yeah, it’s difficult. Times are so crazy in the world. You don’t realize what’s all affected and what’s going on. Just getting things shipped nowadays is not the same as getting things shipped last year.”

And while O’Neal wasn’t ready to spill where the wedding will be held, VH-1 revealed the nuptials will be held in Anguilla, plus viewers are “invited.”

“This special series will follow the happy couple — along with their closest friends and family members — as they prepare for their destination wedding and the blending of their beautiful families,” according to a VH1 release. “Along the way, they will juggle business demands, stewardship of a 15,000-member congregation, and, before God, arrive at the most special moment in a couple’s life: saying I do.”

She has enjoyed stepping back this season of ‘Basketball Wives’

O’Neal said taking a small step back this season has been refreshing. “I have enjoyed every minute!” she exclaimed about not being in the mix of the drama this season. “I would hear the notes. Sometimes I’d tap in, sometimes I wouldn’t. It’s like, ‘You know, I like my peace this week. So I’m not gonna read these notes!’ I’ll wait a couple of weeks and do it.”

“But I needed it,” she admitted about taking some time away from the show. “People are just like we don’t need you in the game anyway,” she laughed. “But, you know, I’m not gone. I can dip in when I’m needed. If not, I’ll be right over here watching like everybody else. But I enjoyed it. I did enjoy sitting back this season and just kind of seeing what everybody else was going through and what’s going on. See how we mix up the group, what could happen?”
