With all the various reality shows out these days, watching television has turned into a continuous loop of a train wreck we just can’t escape. But finally, a breath of fresh air that makes reality television worth watching again – La La’s Full Court Life! The show, which is scheduled to premiere tonight on VH1, follows La La as she transitions from her quiet life in Denver to the concrete jungle of New York City when her hubby Carmelo Anthony is traded to the Knicks. Check out the five reasons why we love the show! -Danielle Pointdujour

Black Love
Even after being together about eight years, La La and Carmelo still seem to ooze love every time we see them. Sure their lives aren’t perfect, even with all that cash, but there is no denying the mush written all over their faces when they’re near each other. With all the reports in the media about how dire the black marriage crisis is, it’s nice to see images of La La and ‘Melo happy, successful and in love on our screens to show us that black love is alive and well!

La La’s Big, Fat, Crazy Family
With her cousin Dice at her side and the rest of her family blowing up her phone every five minutes for Knicks tickets, it’s clear that La La’s family is not that different from any of ours. They drive her crazy, make her laugh and are always there for support when she needs them. That’s something we need more of on television.

It’s In New York
Not sure about anyone else, but seeing reality show after reality show set in LA or Miami as if those are the only two exciting cities on earth was just boring. Yeah we know, New York has had its time to shine in other shows but seeing how both La La and ‘Melo are NYC-bred (and ‘Melo plays for the Knicks), it’s only fitting that La La shoot a show about her life in the city where her dreams began.
