Archive for the ‘hoopz’ Category

Nikki Alexander (1983- ), better known as Hoopz, is an American hip hip model. In 2006 she won the first season of the television show “Flavor of Love” on VH1. Hoopz is the name Flavor Flav gave her because she likes to play baseketball.

In August 2008 she was in “I Love Money”, another reality show on VH1, and in September she will appear on the cover of King magazine.

Most of the women on “Flavor of Love” are more body than beauty and seem more interested in becoming rich and famous than being with Flavor Flav – who, admittedly, is old enough to be their father. But Hoopz seemed different. From what I saw of the show, she had beauty and seemed to have a sense of dignity, a rare thing in reality television. She seemed to like Flavor Flav for himself.

The point of the show was to find Flavor Flav a girlfriend, but they were already casting for season two before season one was done. Hoopz said she was never in love with Flav – none of the women on the show were, not even New York. It is all just made-up for television.

She hated New York, who came in second.

Even before “Flavor of Love” she was not a complete unknown. She was an Internet model and in 2005 she won King magazine’s Web Girl of the Month. She was also in a Will Smith video and later appeared in Big Tigger’s 2006 swimsuit calendar as Miss April.

She has modelled for Titanium Girlz and Eye Candy Modeling.

Like most hip hop models who have reached this stage she is working on becoming an actress – a hard jump to make.

She has a good figure, but most of all, she has beautiful eyes. Her reported measurements are 34C-24-36 inches (86-61-91 cm). That gives her a waist-to-hip ratio of 0.67. She is 5 foot 2 tall (1.57 m).

She grew up just outside of Detroit, the oldest of six daughters. Her father is black, her mother is Italian-American. She looks kind of like the Hollywood actress Stacey Dash (whose mother is Mexican).

She has appeared in at least two music videos:

  • Will Smith: Party Starter (2005)
  • Lil Keke: Chunk Up the Deuce (2006)

Some say she had an affair with T.I. His girlfriend, Tiny of Xscape, was certainly afraid it might be true: she pulled him away from Hoopz at a party and then later bad-mouthed her on the radio. When Hoopz was later asked if she had an affair with T.I. she would only say, “That’s my homeboy; we just cool.”

In 2006 she was arrested for fighting with a policeman. The police came to her house when her neighbours complained of loud music. She was speaking her mind when one of the policemen “grabbed me by me neck and I just remember flying down these steps. While I’m falling, I gripped on to him and we fall. Now we wrestling and two more cop guys come and jump on me”.
