Reality TV mogul Shaunie O'Neal is engaged to marry her boyfriend of 2 years, Pastor Keion Henderson.

Shaunie, 46, is best known as ex-wife of former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal and as executive producer of VH1's reality TV series, Basketball Wives: LA.

Shaunie told PEOPLE her man popped the question on a tropical island at 11:11 p.m. on November 11.

She said the time and date symbolized a special "point of connection" and "played a significant role throughout their relationship since the day they met as they call, text, or pray together daily at that time each day without fail."

Like most smart women Shaunie waited the requisite 2 years to make sure Keion was the one.

"Honestly I'm the person that thought I would never in my lifetime experience a love like this. Everything about that night was incredibly amazing," Shaunie said.

"I wouldn't change a single thing. As a matter of fact, I wish I could experience it over and over again."

"Keion is an extraordinary man of God. He's wise, he's supportive, he's so loving and attentive. He loves me and my children in a way that has changed my life and my heart. He makes me want to be better every day. And I pray that I do the same for him. This love is FOREVER and I'm honored and overjoyed to do forever with him."

A Florida couple invited guests to their lavish wedding at a 16,300 square foot mansion complete with a tennis court, bowling alley and pool with a waterfall.

In their glossy wedding invitation, Courtney Wilson and Shenita Jones - who referred to themselves as "the Royal couple" - claimed they owned the sprawling $5.6 million mansion with 15 bathrooms.

They called the Southwest Ranches mansion their "dream home" and they said God sent them a message to hold their dream wedding there.

However, the homeowner didn't receive the same message from God.

Nathan Finkel's late father, who owned the mansion, was an early IHOP restaurant franchisee. Finkel recently listed it the home for over $5 million.

Finkel was baffled when Wilson showed up outside the gate on Saturday morning to set up for the wedding.

The homeowner told Wilson he never gave them permission to hold their nuptials there.

"I have people trespassing on my property," Finkel told a 911 dispatcher, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Wednesday.

"And they keep harassing me, calling me. They say they're having a wedding here and it's God's message. I don't know what's going on. All I want is (for) it to stop. And they're sitting at my property right at the front gate right now."

Police arrived promptly and told Wilson and his friends to hit the road. No arrests were made.

Wilson previously toured the home as a potential buyer. He fell in love with the property and fancied himself and his new bride living there.

Then he received the Divine message from God telling him the home was his free and clear.

Squatters around the country claim to receive that same Divine message.

"The guy figured it was a vacant house and didn't realize Nathan lived on the property in a different home," Poliakoff said. "This guy had no idea he lived there. You know the shock that must have been on his face when he showed up at the gate and the owner was home?"

Invited guests include RHOA cast mates Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore and former RHOA cast mate Eva Marcille, who will all serve as bridesmaids.

Ex-RHOA cast member NeNe Leakes is also invited, but according to Page Six, she failed to RSVP by press time.

Bailey defended invited so many guests to her extravagant wedding and she detailed the safety preparations amid the slowing coronavirus pandemic.

Bailey told Page Six she established strict Covid-19 protocols for her wedding which takes place on Oct. 10 at the Governors Towne Club in Acworth, Ga., about 27 miles northwest of Atlanta.

Her 250 guests will wear full protective gear and there will be hand washing stations. She said security will eject guests who can't be bothered to wear PPE.

"If anyone doesn't adhere to the rules, then they're just going to be asked to leave," Bailey said. "We're taking this seriously, we want to protect ourselves and our guests."

"We have so many rules and regulations in play, I'm surprised anyone is coming," Bailey said. "We have sanitizing stations, we have an actual basin to wash your hands in before you enter the venue, we have temperature checks and the way the venue is set up, you can be indoors or outdoors the entire time if you want to."

She continued, "We set up the food stations taking all of this into consideration, and you don't have to sit at a table with people you don't know, you can kind of move around. It's a huge space, so you can be as far away from people as you want while still feeling connected to the ceremony."
