WAG No. 181: La La Vazquez
The basketball supporting lady with the craziest name in the game
New York DJ, VJ and film star Alani Vazquez is better known in her home nation by the name ‘La La’, presumably due to a fondness for a little-known Ashlee Simpson song. La La appeared in the Sports Illustrated 2008 Players’ Wives section for her engagement to basketball player Carmelo Anthony. Despit being 6’8″, he plays as a ‘small forward’ for the Denver Nuggets, the team owned by Arsenal board member Stan Kroenke.
La La has presented numerous programmes for MTV, including the Behemoth live show Total Request Live. She has also starred as herself in several dreadful films including Monster Island, You Got Served and Snoop Dogg’s Soul Plane.
She and Anthony are engaged, and have a one-year-old son named Kiyan Anthony.
