VH1 just announced today that newlyweds Carmelo Anthony and LaLa are getting their own reality show!
According to the New York Post, filming began in January and the show titled “La La’s Full Court Life.” The series is a follow-up of sorts to last fall’s five-episode wedding special “La La’s Full Court Wedding” which documented the duo’s July 2010 nuptials. The new 10-episode series, which will focus on the duo as they move their family from Colorado to New York, is scheduled to premiere in August.
Jeff Olde, EVP of VH1, spoke on why fans seem to love LaLa so much:
“Viewers connect with La La because despite the fairy-tale wedding and NBA star husband, she is a real, down-to-earth, hardworking woman who stays true to herself, the best thing about the new series is that while pursuing and realizing her dreams, La La gets to take us back to her home in New York, where her story began.”
Meanwhile, Carmelo played his first game as New York Knick last night. The newcomer scored 27 points and grabbed 10 rebounds leading the Knicks to a 114-108 victory over the Bucks.
