After spending a year in Afghanistan, Our contact with females was limited to say the least. So of course the subject of the most beautiful woman came up many times. Unlike most who picked Maximum girls or Jessica Beil. I stook by my guns on Parminder, yes she is hot but the personality is refreshing, funny and great. She is the ultimate girl next door and the one you take home to mom and start thnking about the L word. I was heartbroke to find she is dating shane west, Just goes to prove all the good ones are taken. Hmm does she have a sister lol.

theyve admitted according to some interviews. unless they havent. they`re only a SCREEN couple..just very good friends. unless ofcourse they HAVE dated and are more than friends. but let`s not forget the possibility that it`s just acting. UNLESS it`s NOT. (personally, i think they WERE NOT dating...but after watching 9087 interviews, i hav concluded they WERE.)

PriyankaDec 10, 2007

They never dated in real life. They didn`t even date on screen, it`s just gossip. Her character Neela and Shane`s character Ray were soon to be a couple until things went wrong towards the end of season 13 in E.R.

lauraOct 8, 2007

She didn`t date shane west, it was on screen only. Unless they had a secret thing going on.

SaraJun 28, 2007
