Shaquille O’Neal joined in on some of the Super Bowl festivities in New Orleans over the weekend, but from the sound of it he didn’t feel the need to hit any strip clubs or stroll down Bourbon Street looking for women. Instead, Shaq reportedly had his sights set on “Entertainment Tonight” co-host Rocsi Diaz. According to the NY Post’s Page Six, Shaq attended a private party at the Hookah Lounge on Saturday night where he had his “complete attention” on Diaz. “Shaq and Rocsi were holding hands at this private party and at a private table,” a source reportedly told Page Six. “They looked like an odd couple, but they seemed really into each other.” They may have looked odd to outsiders, but it sounds like Diaz is just Shaq’s type. Like his former fiancee Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander, Diaz is 5-foot-2. She is a former “BET 106 & Park” host and was in New Orleans reporting for “Entertainment Tonight.” Diaz’s rep confirmed that she was at the party and said she and Shaq are very good friends. If she’s into guys who like taking their shirts off, it could be a match made in heaven.
