Rumor Alert: Shaq Caught Getting Cozy With BET & Entertainment Tonight Host Rocsi Diaz
Word on the street is, Shaquille O’Neal participated in Superbowl festivities over the weekend and had has his eye on one particular Entertainment Tonight reporter.
Hoopsvibe’s quick call: Shaq is known to be a charmer, so this rumor isn’t too surprising.
O’Neal was one of the many athlete/celebrities to make it to New Orleans for some Superbowl fun this past weekend and according to an article from the New York Post, Shaq was rather focused on Entertainment Tonight co-host Rocsi Diaz.
An eye witness at the party was quoted saying, “Shaq and Rocsi were holding hands at this private party and at a private table. They looked like an odd couple, but they seemed really into each other.”
The party the eye witness was referring to was held Saturday night at the Hookah Lounge in New Orleans.
Diaz was in New Orleans hosting for Entertainment Tonight but she used to be the host of BET’s “106 and Park.” Diaz, like Shaq’s ex Nicole Hoopz Alexander, is also pretty sure. She reportedly stands 5’2″. O’Neal is almost two feet taller. He’s listed at 7’1″.
Who knows if there really is anything going on with Shaq and Diaz. But if there is, it certainly seems that Shaq is down with short.
