Five Things We Noticed About Carmelo And LaLa Anthony’s New Reality Show

Around the same time that Carmelo Anthonygot traded to the New York Knicks, it was revealed that his wife, LaLa Vazquez, had been granted her very own reality show on VH1. Well we now have our very own first look at LaLa's Full Court Of Life, which could just as easily been titled the Sports Meets Urban Pop Culture Armageddon.
Here's what we're dealing with, folks.
1. The time Carmelo Anthony got traded to New York might actually be interesting if your girlfriend makes you watch this. Sure, it will more than likely be heavily edited, if not scripted, but it will be interesting to see Carmelo's perspective as he was granted his wish and traded to the Knicks. Remember, this whole "Will he or won't he" deal in Denver was pretty controversial. And an inside look at it, even through the heavily edited faux "reality" of whatever this is, could be interesting.
2. LaLa confides in 50 Cent. At one point towards the end of the trailer, the whole "I'm not sure if we can handle New York, despite demanding to be traded here" storyline comes into play. To help suss out the madness, LaLa turns to none other than 50 Cent. Seems like an odd choice, but what may be even odder is that 50 dispenses pretty good-sounding advice.
3. These already-famous people clearly did not have to sign some sort of insane contract to be on this show. At the end of the trailer, 'Melo and LaLa's toddler son has a temper tantrum in the car, prompting LaLa to ask a cameraman to turn away. The interesting part? The cameraman obliges, something not normally seen on other reality shows like the Real World. People on the Real World basically sign away their human rights to MTV for a year, but since they are usually young, broke, and fame-hungry, they do this without thinking twice. Carmelo and LaLa are definitely not broke, and definitely already famous. Thus, they are not at the mercy of a reality TV show producer's Draconian laws.
4. This show will attempt to convince us that LaLa and Mrs. Chauncey Billups are feuding heavy. While chatting it up with her girlfriends, LaLa mentions that Chauncey Billups' wife was upset that her husband was included in the 'Melo trade, and the vibe LaLa gives is that Mrs. Billups blames LaLa for this happening. Then they meet up, and make weird faces at each other over dinner.
5. Baby mama drama. The show also touches on a rumor that a Knick fathered a child out-of-wedlock, as a clip of LaLa being asked about the rumor during a radio interview is included in the trailer. The drama will likely be a small part of the aforementioned "can we handle the New York media?" storyline, which seems to be the overarching theme of the trailer.
