For some Olympic families, it's enough just to go to London to cheer. But that's not La La Vasquez Anthony.
Sure she'll have time to cheer on Carmelo as he plays basketball for Team USA, but she'll also be filming her VH1 reality show "La La's Full Court Life."
The camera-loving Anthony also had time in London for an interview by herself with the "Today Show" Thursday where she said she not only brought her son and mother to the Olympics, but also the entire crew of her show.
According to the New York Daily News, as recently as Tuesday Vasquez was in Malibu. She was shot frolicking on the beach in a bikini the same day her husband was taking on Tunisia.
But before descending on the Brits Wednesday, Anthony had time to get her nails in the mood for the games. She Tweeted a photo of her nails done up with an Olympic manicure -- the ring finger was painted white with an overlay of the Olympic rings. The rest of the nails were red, navy and blue with gold studs.
During the "Today" chat, Savannah Guthrie admired the nails as the two gabbed about supporting Carmelo's efforts for the USA basketball team. Anthony said the couple had already hung out in London with fellow Olympian LeBron James.
And then she told Guthrie that she'd be filming while she was rooting.
"When do you get to capture London during the Olympics and all this excitement?" Anthony said. "So I thought it would be great to film some of this while we're here. So yes, the show will be filming here and capture all the behind-the-scenes-action that sometimes you don't get to see on TV."
