First Lady of the NBA

It’s not easy being the wife of a star athlete in New York, particularly if you were a little famous to begin with (just ask Anna Benson). LaLa Vazquez, MTV host and  reality TV also-ran, married Carmelo Anthony months before his blockbuster trade to the Knicks. Now, she’s trying to boost her own fame without appearing to exploit his. It’s tricky, even for a Brooklyn girl. My profile of LaLa in today’s Sunday Styles, First Lady of the NBA.
