LaLa Vazquez Anthony in Diane von Furstenberg at Pampers 50th Birthday Event

LaLa lent her celebrity for good at Pampers 50th Birthday Celebration at The Mount Sinai hospital in New York City.  Style Me Prissy caught up with the 31-year-old basketball wife and TV personality at the event to discuss motherhood, marriage, giving back, her husband’s road to the Knicks, and her upcoming reality TV show “LaLa’s Full Court Life.”

At the event, LaLa partnered with celebrity parents Joey Lawrence , Ali Larter, and Mark Consuelos to personally deliver care packages and thank you baskets to families and staff. As she wiped tears from her eyes after visiting with families in the NICU, LaLa shared with me that she’s glad Carmelo sat this one out as “he would have been crying his eyes out seeing all these babies.” Below is a snippet from our interview.

Style Me Prissy: LaLa, you’ve been keeping yourself busy! You’ve made a name for herself as a radio host, MTV VJ, film actress, and now reality TV star. What’s the new show about?

LaLa: (laughs) I tell people all the time that I’m more than just a “basketball wife.”  There’s nothing wrong with being that, of course… but I keep myself busy with my own life, our son, and my own accomplishments.  I’m really excited about the upcoming show! It’s all about my life now that my husband was traded to the Knicks. You’ll actually get to see the whole trade happen. Also on the show, you’ll get to see some of my close celebrity girlfriends like Serena Williams, Kelly Rowland, Kim Kardashian, Ciara… the whole crew. (laughs) And you’ll also see me giving dating advice. See, I’m the only one who’s married now so it’s kind of funny how I’m offering advice on different things. It’s a fun show. I hope people like it.

Style Me Prissy: Well that sounds really fun – I know I’ll be tuning in! So just to be clear, this isn’t like a newly wed show or anything?

LaLa: No, not at all. You’ll see Melo here and there… after all, he’s my husband. (laughs) But this show is all about me, and how I’m settling in NYC with our son and adjusting to life here. Like, we’re still living in a hotel and that’s been tough! (laughs) I like reality TV because it gives people a look inside of something that they wouldn’t normally see. Even with us and with the trade and how it all happened, it looks a certain way on the outside, but when you get in there you’re like, “Okay, maybe it wasn’t exactly how I thought.” I think it’ll really give people a chance to see my personality and how I am and I think that’ll be good.

LaLa is wearing a Diane von Furstenberg dress in khaki from the Fall-Winter Collection.  It currently retails for $295.00 and you can find it here. As you can see, the dress on that model is NOT the business. That’s why fit and styling are so essential.  LaLa accessorized with a matte gold belt and Brian Atwood Maniac Pumps in Beige.

      I tend to find that many of these couture fashions look better on a “real” person with a “real” figure.

    Both of you ladies look great! Didn’t realize LaLa was so tall! Maybe it’s the heels.

      She did seem tall, Fatimah, but also wearing heels that looked close to 4″, so hard to really tell. One thing I do know is that she had gorgeous long legs! :)

      Yes, she really is – that’s what I love about her. Very pretty and so down-to-earth.
      I appreciate her emphasis that there is so much more to her identity than “just a basketball wife.”
