Not today, dummies. Shaunie O’Neal detected a couple of men who appeared to be trying to break into her L.A. home and scared the crap out of them, thanks to the Ring security system.
The Basketball Wives star and creator shared a video of the suspicious characters on Instagram. “What are you doing? You’re on camera — smile, bitch!” she says, using the two-way talk feature. No surprise, they didn’t have anything to say back.
Shaunie credits ex-husband Shaquille O’Neal with hooking up her house. In 2016, Shaq got an equity stake in the company in exchange for his appearances in Ring’s TV and online commercials. Considering Amazon acquired the company for a reported $1.1 billion this year, that was a smart move for the former NBA star. And this is some good, free promotion from his former wife!
Shaunie told TMZ on Tuesday that the men had tried to break in before and she believes they are looking for opportunities based on the family’s social media activities, as Kim Kardashian has dealt with.
“I’m assuming though that they are watching social media because the first time he tried we were all in Vegas,” she explained. “That was our family meeting last night — no more posting current situations. We can’t do that.”
Despite the Ring doing its job, she said, the family has been shaken by the events. Shaunie and Shaq share four children together: Shareef, 18, Amirah, 16, Shaqir, 15, and Me’arah, 12. The former spouses separated in 2007 after five years of marriage but reconciled shortly after. In 2009, Shaunie filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Two intruders found out the hard way that they chose the wrong house for a break-in when they were surprised by Shaunie O’Neal on her video doorbell. It seems the potential burglars didn’t know that the house belonged to the ex of NBA great Shaquille O’Neal, the spokesman for Ring Video Doorbells.
Shaunie O’Neal saw two men on her property attempting to break into her house and she used her security system to scare them off, says TMZ. Shaunie activated the 2-way speaker on her Ring video surveillance system and called out the two men on her property.
The newest Ring campaign has Shaquille O’Neal traveling across the country wearing a T-shirt with the word “Ring” prominently across his chest. The headline reads, “The Big Man just added a new Ring to his collection, and he’s taking our mission coast-to-coast!”
They say that “Sheriff Shaq” protects his home court with Ring, and after hearing about Shaunie O’Neal’s experience, it seems that the product is working for the whole family.
Shaunie O’Neal was able to provide law enforcement and neighbors with video and stills of the trespassers so that people can be on alert for them in the future.
Sounds like a Ringing endorsement.
