MOM-OIRS

A Shaqtastic New Book

A Shaqtastic book is coming soon—but it won't be penned by Shaquille O'Neal himself. It's his mother, Lucille O'Neal, who will be writing the book, along with Newsweek reporter Allison Samuels. She'll share a "personal story," which will prove that she's more than just Shaq's mom. "The most interesting part of the book for me," Samuels told The Observer, "is how she had this resentment towards Shaq's success, because everything changed so much when he become part of the NBA." The book will be published by Thomas Nelson—the Christian publisher that put out Britney Spears' mother's book—in time for Mother's Day next year.
