Ever since Lala Anthony was relocated to New York due to her husband, Carmelo Anthony’s NBA trade, she has been on her grind to expand her career. Finally, her hard work has paid off with her debut in the theatrical off- Broadway play “Love, Loss and What I Wore.”
The former VJ and current first lady of the New York Knicks sat down with necolebitchie.com as she celebrated her role at the private gathering sponsored by X-Rated Fusion Liqueur. She dished on the play as if “Lala’s Full Court Life” would be around for a second season. “I really loved this play and so many great women have taken it on before me. Tony winners, Emmy winners, and amazing actresses – So I was honored to be given the opportunity”, said Lala.
The play was comprised of a series of monologues and Lala played many different characters. This is certainly a difficult type of play for someone to start out with but Lala seemed to have a connection with some of the characters because her friends had certain traits of the roles.
I loved all of them! I get to play so many different roles – from a gang leader’s sweetheart, to an engaged lesbian. I think that role (the lesbian) hit closest home for me, because some of my closest friends are gay and I see what they deal with when it comes to wanting to get married. And it’s a cause near and dear to my heart, so I think I appreciate that monologue the most…Oh! Also the shoes. I basically talk about how my feet always hurt, which is true. I love shoes but I tell everyone, my feet constantly hurt. I don’t have one comfortable pair.
When it came to “Lala’s Full Court Life” and a second season this is what Lala had to say:

You know, there have been some very early talks. I’m actually surprised that people are as interested in my life as much as they are. To me it’s just so everyday. But I appreciate that we’ve found an audience and I think my family and I will evaluate where we are and if that’s something we’d like to continue doing. But I’m just grateful to perhaps even have the option.
