Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander and Shaquille O'Neal
Shaq and HoopzHere are some of the things that might surprise you about my next guest, Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander: Six years ago, before agreeing—basically on a lark—to appear on the reality dating show, “Flavor of Love, "Hoopz” was working as a TSA agent in her hometown of Brownstown, Michigan. She loves Edgar Allen Poe, is “obsessed” with all things supernatural, and has seen a ghost. She stands at five feet two inches tall—making her nearly a full two feet shorter than her boyfriend, Shaquille O’Neal. And finally, yes, his constant travel does take a toll on her, but retail therapy often helps soothe the void (She’s been known to drop $400 dollars at CVS on days when he hits the road with the Boston Celtics). We talk with "Hoopz” about her new reality venture, adjusting to life in the suburbs of Boston, and her plans for Valentines Day on Monday.
