Lala Flexes her Acting Chops 

La La Anthony wants to add actress to her list of occupations.The Latin beauty has spent many years as a TV Host, Radio DJ and most recently a Reality TV star. Now she wants to be known as an actress. “I’m going to make it in that space,” she said of Los Angeles where she lives when she’s not in New York with her hubby, Carmelo Anthony of the NY Knicks.

The aspiring actress is already part of the cast of the upcoming movie Act like a Lady; Think like a Man which is based on the popular book by Steve Harvey. She has another project in the works, an off Broadway production of  Love, Loss and What I Wore. The transition isn’t so easy as Hollywood is prone to judge people off their past work, and convincing agents and directors to think of her as an actress will take work.

“It’s the most challenging thing I have to do; people just want to see things one way. When I go to auditions, I feel like I have to prove myself 10 times over.” She goes on to say “acting is a challenge; I have to break all these barriers. When you win a role, like the Steve Harvey role, it’s so satisfying. I teared up, and that’s not usually me.” The next part of her reality series, La La’s Full Court Life, is premiering tonight at 9pm on VH1.The first part was about her preparing to marry Carmelo Anthony and this part focuses on her life after the wedding. LaLa is now an executive on the show, as she and her husband run Kross-over entertainment which produces the show. The power couple is working on a slew of other projects, one of which is a children’s book about bullying.


Although the NBA is in a lockout situation, Lala says her husband is still training for basketball season along with working on all of their upcoming projects. “People don’t understand how hard this guy works out, three times a day. He’s going from boxing workout to weight training to a regular workout. He’s proceeding [on the assumption] that there will be a basketball season. La La says she enjoys how busy her life is and she loves what she does.
