From VIBE Vixen — Recently LaLa Anthony-Vasquez was dubbed the“First Lady of The NBA” by the New York Times, in an article highlighting her marriage to the NBA New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony. The two have been married since 2010 as cameras filmed the ceremony for VH1 in their reality show, LaLa’s Full Court Wedding.
The Times asked:
Given their combined star power, good looks and obvious ambition, the question must be asked: Are Mr. and Mrs. Anthony campaigning to be the next Posh and Becks (Victoria and David Beckham)? Or perhaps a family-friendly version of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom?
There is no doubt the couple is very stunning and persistent in promoting their brand. We all know with much fame comes the many critiques and scrutiny. The article also alludes back to a YouTube video when Mrs. Anthony was angrily escorted out of a Mavericks game in 2009 after confrontation against rowdy fans. On “The Wendy Williams Show” in March, Mrs. Anthony jokingly complained that none of the Knicks wives had introduced themselves to her yet pending her efforts.
