This week on the season premiere of La La’s Full Court Life, La La fills us in on what’s been going o in her life during the off-season, most notable, the “Honey Nut Cheerios incident.”
Sure, La La’s career is at a high point with movies like Baggage Claim and Think Like a Man killing it at the box office, but the one thing everyone was talking about this spring was a certain cereal. “The Honey Nut Cheerios thing was so stupid,” La says at the beginning of the episode, not wasting any time getting right into it. “Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock,” she says, “you’ve seen the headlines, the craziness, the rumors, the blogs. It became a social media nightmare and caused us a lot of stress.” As a family, they got over it and La La is NOT one to dwell on the negative, so after making her brief statement about the incident, it’s time to move on and focus on career, friends, and family, as she always does.
Among all her other ventures, La La is now an author. As she prepares for her book cover release party, we learn that she has an evil streak (Po’s words, not ours!) because in her efforts to bring Dice, now an Atlanta resident, back to New York, La La lies to Dice, telling her she got a job on the radio. Eeeee-VIL! In the clips below, watch what happens when La goes too far.
“I didn’t expect Dice to really get upset,” La says after Dice has a bad reaction to being lied to about a job opportunity, moving herself to New York for six months, and then realizing she has no job, actually. Oh, La La.
Since she got herself into this mess, it’s up to La La to get herself out of it. Luckily, La La is able to pull a few strings and get Dice a job doing an online radio show — for no money. Since Dice has already picked up and moved, she agrees to it because “I’m here now, it is what it is.”
“I learned my lesson,” La says of the situation. She lied, Dice got angrier than she ever has, and La La paid the price. “It’s never going to happen again.”
“Dinner’s on you,” Dice tells La La. It’s the least she can do.
