Shaq’s ex-girlfriend, Nikki ‘Hoopz’ Alexander, to star in Oxygen reality show

shaq-and-hoopz (1)

Nikki “Hoopz” Alexander, who first burst onto the scene looking for love on “Flavor of Love,” has landed her own reality series on the Oxygen Network. Hoopz, who at one point dated NBA baller Shaquille O’Neal will star in the series tentatively titled, “It Takes a Sister,” a docu-series that will shadow Alexander and her five younger sisters (ages 24-31), along with their 11 children, as they attempt to get settled on Hoopz’s rural ranch in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Unlike her reality counterparts, such as Tiffany “New York” Pollard, who went on to star in “I Love New York,” parts one and two, Alexander won’t be looking for love on her new show. Instead, the new series is turning the camera on Hoopz and her family, giving viewers a true sense of who Nikki Alexander really is.


“Now at Nikki’s ranch in rural Knoxville, Tennessee, these girls are fish-out-of-water as they try to fit in down south. Their relationship will be tested as Nikki, known as the ‘Mama Bear’ of the family, pursues her dream of opening her own boutique, while also helping her sisters accomplish their own goals. Can Nikki do it all being the head of this hectic household, older sister, world’s best aunt and business owner?” read a May press release describing the show.

      Dang @butterbeansuga I hope your day gets better lovebug! While Nikki may be of no relevance to you, I think there will be some young girls/ladies out there who could use some sort of example of working and real family lifestyle. While I can appreciate Oxygen for not wasting airtime on shows that have no value to anyone except for the people on the show (Atlanta Hip Hop of Hate and The Unmarried Atlanta Housewives) everyone deserves a chance even Nikki. Again, hope your day gets better as I know deep inside YOU, your a wonderful person.

        Well said. These negative rants are very common from @butterbeansuga. I hope your daily LIFE gets better.

      I feel what you saying butter.. but this is what Hollywood (look up the pagan references of the holly tree) will allow them to do.. Oprah and Tyler are the crème ala crème who are willing to sell out themselves and their people to make a dollar.. Shame on those who support it in the name of- “Look y’all we’s on TV Now”.. For what it’s worth Hoopz deserves a show just like the rest of these rachet queens.. If Tiffany got a show and the rest of these people, then why can’t she.. The real story though is why they broke off the engagement. Bet we won’t hear about that.
