Lala Vazquez scoring more often than Carmelo Anthony lately
Carmelo and La La want to share.
Lala Vazquez may not be the queen of all media yet, but she's in the running. She's the cover girl on the debut issue of the new mag Juicy and her forthcoming nuptials with Nuggets baller Carmelo Anthony will be the subject of a VH1 reality series to premiere on September 19, just over a month before the start of the NBA season. Look below to see Lala's Juicy cover and a VH1 release about the new show.
VH1 has signed television personality Lala Vazquez to a new series about her upcoming wedding, including all the planning and festivities leading up to her big day. The five-part series will premiere on Sunday, September 19 at 10:30pm and consist of four half-hour episodes and a one-hour wedding finale.
The series begins with La La meeting with A-list wedding planner to the stars Mindy Weiss and follows Lala through all her wedding-planning activities. Viewers will ride along as Lala shops for the perfect designer wedding dress, chooses the wedding venue, picks out the ultimate wedding cake and menu, plans their honeymoon, and contemplates the guest list. Along the way viewers will also get a glimpse at Lala's celeb-hosted bachelorette party in Las Vegas.
While planning her fairytale wedding and maintaining her and Carmelo's hectic schedules, Lala works to balance the demands of her career, family, friends, and motherhood. The series will culminate in a one-hour lavish celebrity-filled wedding finale in New York that only this superstar couple could host.
"From Charm School to the many reunion specials, I have loved being part of the VH1 family" says Lala. "And I'm even more excited to now share the behind-the scenes of this very personal event in my life, my wedding, with that family of viewers."
VH1.com will be home to show information, video clips, full episodes and more when the series premieres in September.
