Bio

La La Anthony (née Vazquez) is an American actress, disc jockey and television personality best known for hosting the reunion specials for all seasons of Flavor of Love, both seasons of I Love New York, the first season of Real Chance of Love, the first season of Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School and For the Love of Ray J.

La La was born in Brooklyn, NY to Puerto Rican parents. She began her entertainment career in radio at the age of 16, in Atlanta's Hot 97 station.

After a short internship stint at that station, and while still in High School, she was given her own show, the wildly popular Future Flavas, alongside rapper/actor Ludacris.

Upon graduating from high school, La La briefly left Hot 97 to attend Howard University. At 19, she got an offer from LA's 92.3 The Beat to co-host her own radio show, the B-Syde.

Much like Atlanta's Hot 97, 92.3 was one of the top market stations in the country, and once again La proved that she was a force to be reckoned with on the airways.

After yet another successful run on the radio, MTV took notice and came calling next. La left 92.3 in 2001 and joined the MTV family. Although she had no previous on-TV experience, La quickly proved that she was ready to take on any challenge that came her way.

No stranger to doing high profile interviews during her days on radio, La instantly became the network's premiere talent and went on to co-host two of their most popular shows, Direct Effect and TRL.

During her time at MTV, she completed a countless number of high profile interviews, including Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Will Smith and Angelina Jolie, among others.

At the height of her career at MTV, La decided to leave the network to embark on the next step of her career. She launched her own production company Krossover Productions in 2003 and was a producer on Mike Tyson's critically acclaimed documentary, Tyson.

Directed by Academy and Golden Globe nominated writer/director James Toback, Tyson was named the winner of the Regard Knockout Award in France and debuted to a standing ovation in 2009's Cannes Film Festival.

La continues to expand her career in all areas. She inked production deals with VH1, Russell Simmons's Simmons-Lathan production, and 51 Minds. She also continues to be an on demand on-air talent.

51 Minds have called on her for a number of their projects, including Charm School, Flavor of Love, I Love New York, etc.

She produced a feature film with director/producer Brett Ratner, and had a starring role in The Gun, alongside Val Kilmer and 50 Cent. Her VH1 reality show aired in September 2010. The show chronicles the time leading up to La's wedding to basketball star Carmelo Anthony.

She currently resides in LA with her husband and son.
