Soon after claiming her spot on MTV, La La went after a career in film, starting with Vivica Foxâ€™s Two Can Play That Game in 2001. Playing the role of Bobby the DJ, in what served as Vivica and her friendsâ€™ hang out spot, a 22-year-old La La started chasing her dream. One year later, the budding actress took on the role of Pam Jackson in Urban Massacre, a hip-hop thriller about a murderous clown. In 2004, La La played herself in the dance crew movie, You Got Served. That same year, the 33-year-old TV personality made her sitcom debut on UPNâ€™s (now the CW) former show, One on One. But as La La was acquiring a number of acting roles and film and television appearances, it wasnâ€™t until 2006 that she became a staple in primetime television.
After her VJ days with MTV, La La acted as the reunion host for VH1's first dating show, Flavor of Love. The following year she returned to VH1 as the reunion host to the Flavor of Loveâ€™s spin-off show, Charm School. Since 2007, La La has hosted three additional VH1 reunion shows, and starred in two of her own reality shows, La Laâ€™s Full Court Wedding (2010) followed by its spin-off, La Laâ€™s Full Court Life (2011).
While building her reality television career, the New York native continued to build her TV and film career appearing in titles such as CBSâ€™ CSI: NY, BETâ€™s Letâ€™s Stay Together and her most recent film, Think Like A Man (2012). La La is currently in post-production for two films slated to come out later this year: 1982 and Baggage Claim.
