La La tears up when her friend asks what’s going on with her husband Carmelo Anthony and why everyone in Denver thinks she’s a villain!
Until La La Vazquez & Carmelo Anthony move to New York City — which I promise is inevitable — the angst over where the couple will land if Carmelo is traded from the Denver Nuggets seems too melodramatic.
It’s a busy time for our girl La La. She’s worrying about hosting the pre-show for the Critics Choice Awards, fighting off rumors that she’s to blame for Carmelo’s desire to play elsewhere and planning a 30th birthday party for her BFF Kelly Rowland.
La La takes Kelly to a gun range — Is this a thing I’m not aware of? My mom just started doing this with her friends — and then to get her first tattoo.
An amusing exchange happens when Serena Williams crashes the parlor and asks Kelly why she chose to get ‘Masterpiece’ inked on her body.
“It’s Scripture. God looks at us all as masterpieces,” Kelly answers.
“What about Leviticus … about not tattooing your body?” Serena quips back. Point, Serena.
Later on, La La gets a quick dose of reality as far as her career goes — she needs to focus more on acting. But she admits that she’s distracted by the trade rumors. La La, you have your own career to worry about. Let Carmelo and the owners and general managers deal with the trades.
After a heart to heart with her friend Po, La La worries that she’s the villain in Denver — everyone thinks she’s the reason Carmelo wants to leave Denver.
But like I’ve said, we know how this ends. The real drama begins when there’s only 9 minutes left before she has to appear on the red carpet for the Critic’s Choice Awards and still doesn’t have a dress to wear — it’s stuck in traffic!
Fortunately, the dress arrives and La La kills it as the pre-show host. (Much better than Selena Gomez did at the MTV VMAs, in my opinion.)
Afterward came my favorite moment of the night — Carmelo sends his wife a photo that he took of her on TV. We only heard his voice in this episode — but the couple really is adorable and it’s nice to see in the land of reality television.
Be sure to watch La La’s Full Court Life every Monday at 9PM on VH1 and check back for more of HollywoodLife‘s coverage!
