Lala Vasquez-Anthony Covers Pynk Magazine + Interview!

Lala Vasquez-Anthony has her second season of her reality show she’s gearing up for this fall–“LaLa’s Full Court Life.” It’s on the same network as those “Basketball Wives”–VH1–so it’s only natural to ask how she feels about them. Excerpts from @Pynk’s interview:

“I was offered a spot on the show. I turned it down. I have absolutely nothing against basketball wives, the show Basketball Wives, or anything like that. But I pride myself in being more than just a basketball wife. I understand that’s something that I am, but that’s not a title that I want to define me. I’d rather be known as a mom, a businesswoman, a producer, an actress, a TV host. I just felt like that didn’t fit who I was and where my career was trying to go.”

On Being Referred To As The First Lady Of New York:
“I kind of laugh when people say it. It’s an honor to be called [The First Lady Of New York.] For people to even put us in the same category as Jay-Z and Beyonce — that’s just an honor in itself, but I don’t deal well with titles.
