With 'Melo in Big Apple, NY is La La Land

Carmelo Anthony's wife, La La Vazquez, is a Brooklyn girl



    Get ready New York. La La's back in town.

    That's La La Vazquez, the stiletto-wearing, luxury-loving, green-eyed reality TV star wife of new Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony.

    His blockbuster trade is a homecoming for La La, who, like her hubby, hails from Brooklyn.

    The couple will showcase their new life in the Big Apple in, what else, a reality TV series called "La La's Full Court Life."

    After all, her July 2010 wedding to Anthony in Manhattan at Cipriani's -- complete with all her bridal stresses -- was chronicled in a six-part VH1 reality series, "La La's Full Court Wedding."

    The five-foot-six stunner married 'Melo after dating for six years. They have a son, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, who turns four next month.

    Born Alina Vazquez, she grew up on Brooklyn Avenue in Flatbush and has never forgotten her roots, as she told the New York Post.

    Years before she met Melo, she made her mark in radio and TV.

    Rap star Ludacris nicknamed her La La while both were doing a radio show in Atlanta, "Future Flavas."  Among her gigs, MTV's "Total Request Live" "Hip Hop Countdown" and "Direct Effect."
