In recent years, she has filmed five seasons of a reality show titled, "La La's Full Court Life," which depicts her career and life with an NBA star. In fact, a new episode is set to air Wednesday at 9 p.m.

She also acted in the recently released sequel, "Think Like a Man Too," as well as the original film. Beyond that, she doesn't have many recognizable acting roles, but she has put together a very respectable career. She's hosted "Flavor of Love" reunions and guest-starred on shows like, "CSI: New York" and "Law & Order," according to her IMDB profile.

Anthony wrote "The Love Playbook," which was released earlier this year. She's also involved with fashions lines and cosmetics.

Needless to say, she stays busy and most of her work is based in New York or Los Angeles. She was born in Brooklyn, so her New York ties are deep.

La La is 35, five years older than her husband. Whether she's ready to slow down, move to Chicago or continue the bicoastal lifestyle is anyone's guess. The answer probably will go a long way toward deciding whether Carmelo Anthony joins the Bulls.
