Shaquille O'Neal Engaged To Nicole 'Hoopz' Alexander?

Shaquille O'Neal, the new Boston Celtics center, may be engaged to girlfriend Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander, winner of the VH1 reality TV show "I Love Money."

O'Neal was in St. Louis on Monday and took Alexander and friends to Sahara Mediterranean Cuisine and Hookah Lounge for dinner. Lounge owner Sam David believes that is where O'Neal may have popped the question.

"I think he may have proposed to his girlfriend," Sam David told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He brought a chair into the middle of the dance floor and he put a ring on her finger."

O'Neal has had a very busy summer already, airing the second season of his own TV show "Shaq Vs." and learning Hebrew.
