Now that her divorce from NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal is almost final, life's a beach for Shaunie O'Neal, who is enjoying a romance with a new man.
The 35-year-old mother of five stepped out in Maui on last week with her beau, 23-year-old model Marlon Yates.
"He's very mature," says Shaunie, who adds that the couple's age difference is a benefit. "The age thing keeps it fun. The energy level, being out on the beach. He is working out all the time and he inspires me [to work out]."
Shaunie, who executive produces and stars in VH1's new reality series, Basketball Wives, which premieres April 11, met Yates through a mutual family friend last November, the same month she filed for divorce against Shaq.

Brittany Murphy is in the spirit of giving this holiday season. "I'm either going on the USO tour during the holidays or home to New Jersey," the actress told us at the recent Just Cavalli/Flaunt magazine party in Beverly Hills. "I've been on two USO tours already. One was in the States and another was in Iraq, and I can't say where we are going if I go." As for her experience with the nonprofit organization, which aims to boost the morale of U.S. troops, Murphy says, "I will always be involved in the USO. Once you go over it's a part of you forever. It's nice being a friendly face from home." In fact, she has a personal connection to the USO: "I come from a military family – the Marine Corps," she says. "I have a bunch of family members in the Marines." Also at the party: Paris and Nicky Hilton, Mischa Barton, Brandon Davis, Leelee Sobieski, Jared Leto, Evan Rachel Wood and Kevin Connelly.
