La La Anthony: Living in New York Is 'Overwhelming'

08/07/2011 AT 09:30 AM EDT

It's not easy to love New York.

A year into her marriage with basketball star Carmelo Anthony – who was recently traded from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks – La La Anthony is adjusting to life in the Big Apple. And it's a big adjustment.

"It's overwhelming," Anthony, 32, says in a sneak peak for her new VH1 series, La La's Full Court Life, which will document the move. "People everywhere, paparazzi."

On the show, Anthony takes on media scrutiny (and New York real estate!) as she tries to balance her own career with being an NBA star's wife and a mom to son Kiyan, 4.

"Being married to an athlete is a hard thing," she says in the clip. "I want to be a wife, but I don't want to give up my dreams."

La La's Full Court Life premieres Aug. 22 (9 p.m. ET) on VH1.
