*Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz attended the annual Bronx Charter School auction and ended up in a high stakes bidding war against each other over one item.
“Alicia and Swizz looked more in love than ever, gazing into each other’s eyes and kissing like no one was watching,” a witness told People magazine. However, the canoodling didn’t quell their competitive nature, which was exposed when a guitar signed by the Rolling Stones went up for bid.
Ultimately, neither one took home the instrument. Keys ended up with a penguin drawing created in collaboration between her husband and some schoolchildren, while Swizz took a turn spinning tracks behind the deejay booth at the Ciroc Vodka-sponsored party.
Also on hand were La La Vasquez and her husband Carmelo Anthony, as well as Kaseem Jr., Swizz’s 6-year-old son from his previous marriage.
Just one day after Carmelo Anthony’s announced trade from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks, VH1 is announcing a new reality series surrounding the NBA star and his TV host wife, La La Vazquez, as they make the transition from Colorado to the Big Apple.
According to the New York Post, the network began filming the couple in January for a show tentatively titled “La La’s Full Court Life,” a follow-up to last fall’s five-episode wedding special, “La La’s Full Court Wedding,” which documented the duo’s July 2010 nuptials.
The new 10-episode series is scheduled to premiere in August.
“Viewers connect with La La because despite the fairy-tale wedding and NBA star husband, she is a real, down-to-earth, hardworking woman who stays true to herself,” Jeff Olde, EVP of Original Programming and Production at VH1, told the Post. “The best thing about the new series is that while pursuing and realizing her dreams, La La gets to take us back to her home in New York, where her story began.”
Anthony is expected to play his first game for the Knicks tonight.
