Did Shaq Propose to Hoopz?

If you’re horribly confused by the title of this piece, you’re not alone. For those not in the know, the "Hoopz" in question is a young lady by the name of Nicole Alexander. If that doesn’t ring any bells, you may wish to cast your mind back to a little show called The Flavor of Love in which everyone’s favorite viking-helmet-wearing former Public Enemy hypeman Flavor Flav looked for love. Ms. Alexander managed to beat out nineteen other hopefuls in the first season of the show, although surprisingly she and Flav did not end up living happily ever after.

Now it seems as if Hoopz has become romantically entangled with another pseudo-rapper and reality television star, Shaquille O’Neal. Word has it that not only have the pair been dating, but that Shaq even went so far as to propose to his new lady-friend in St. Louis. Curioser and curiouser, eh? Let us know what you think of this new power couple and, assuming the reports are true, their engagement.
