She may be best known as the star of La La’s Full Court Life and reality mogul Kim Kardashian’s best friend, but La La Anthony wants people to know that she’s no talentless TV personality. “There are so many other sides to me,” the feisty new actress told In Touch at the X-Rated Fusion Liqueur party celebrating her turn in the off-Broadway play Love, Loss, and What I Wore in New York. “Theater is the best way for people to see what I can do and take me seriously, because I’m more than just a reality star.”
And it seems like fans are giving La La’s stage debut two thumbs up. “The feedback I’ve gotten has been like, ‘Wow, you’re really good!’” she added proudly. “I think people are pleasantly surprised and happy about it.” But no fans were as thrilled for the star as BFF Kim and her new husband, Kris Humphries, who stopped by for a recent performance. “She just couldn’t believe it. And Kris was going crazy cheering, ‘La La, you’re the man!’” she recalled, laughing. “They just seemed to be really pleased by it.”
Next up for La La? A role in the upcoming romantic comedy Think Like a Man alongside Chris Brown and Gabrielle Union. “My biggest dream is definitely to transition into acting,” says the mom of 4-year-old Kiyan and wife of NBA star Carmelo Anthony. It looks like her dreams are finally coming true!
