Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander chats about her new love, and finding for her public and candid relationship with NBA vet, Shaquille O'Neal. NBA: Shaq can literally taste the flavour of Flavor Flav. that has 25 per cent of its players coming from Europe won't be able to market itself. Hoopz FINALLY spills the tea on what happened between her and Shaq — what she admits will make your jaw drop!.
But I'm like a hopeless romantic, my heart is humongous so I do get hurt a lot. I'm at my store and my phone started ringing off the hook from people I haven't talked to in awhile. You and Shaquille-you guys are at the Wimbledon.
I'm at my store right now, about to put up my opening sign. Then I looked, and the story was everywhere. And I'm thinking, but that's not me! It was an uppercut. I just didn't expect him to do something like that! And I literally sat there and I'm looking at them sitting next to each other and she's all over him, so I knew it had to have been longer than obviously what I just saw.
And everything was good before that right? Yes, we were fine. We were in a little long distance relationship, but everything was fine. But the respect level of not being out in public.

For me, let me have done that and he would have killed me. Out of respect, I would have never taken someone to a major event that you know would be televised.
We were supposed to be way better than that. At the end of the day, you can't hold on to that. People are going to do what they are going to do. There is no stopping that.
I'm not saying it didn't effect me at first, because it still hurts now, but you gotta be like, okay, cool. It is what it is. It's what he decided to do and he has to live with that. I move on and be the best person I can be. I'm still hopeful for love. As you should be. They only win when you stop being hopeful [for love]. But what I want to know is- did he ever tell you why? No, we got into it. And, I don't know, with him it's weird -- we are still close, like the best of friends. I love him still.
So you guys are working through it, but how does that work out? Because you have this amazing new guy that has just, showed you so much of his positive self, and he's treating you like a queen- but you're still friends with your ex.
How does that work out? By being honest, and that is the one piece of advice that I would give everybody in this world. If you're being honest about what is happening in your forefront about everything, who can say anything? And people usually respect that. So I feel like to keep hate in your heart, completely disown this person because you are with another, I don't know. To me, that's just a little inhuman. You have to forgive and just try and move on.
The more that you hold on to, it affects everything. The way you think, the way you view things. I think that is one of the hardest things with being in relationship.
Because when you are with that person, they consume your mind and everything. So you're not viewing the world through your eyes, you're viewing it through what they think their decisions and their reactions would be. You get kind of confused, so you have to stay true to yourself. I think being in relationship is a risk all its own.
And you have to be strong enough to take that risk. Tell us about your new love! His name is Ovince St. I wasn't looking for anything. I was just happy I was going to be focused on me. Doesn't it always happen that way? The minute you're like no, I'm just going to focus on me, career, and that's it.
And then, oh hi! You meet someone and then one thing leads to another.

I took a chance on love again, even after the past, which is really hard. But he is so patient and I love him to death for that. To be able to just be there and to still be okay with me letting all that go. And still loving me. He has a big career on his hands too, [he is a UFC fighter], but we're juggling the time between our relationship and our careers between each other.
