Vanessa Bryant and her friend La La Anthony recently participated in the popular #dontreactchallenge but the two friends were seen flashing their gorgeous smiles in the video.
Vanessa Bryant and La La Anthony are the latest celebrities to try out the #DontReactChallenge on TikTok and the two had quite some fun doing so.
Taking to Instagram, Anthony shared a clip where she and Bryant were seen sitting side by side. While Anthony rocked a white sweatshirt and matching pants, Bryant rocked a similar orange-colored outfit.
The clip opened with the pair smiling as music played in the background. Bryant had some sort of self-control from the beginning but Anthony was continuously seen trying hard to restrain herself from reacting.
The second slide of the post showed Bryant struggling to hold back a reaction as some old school West Coast hip hop songs played. Captioning the video, Anthony wrote,
"Guess who's back!! This [expletive] is harder than it looks @vanessabryant ?? u guys should try this?"
For the #DontReactChallenge, participants are required to listen to some classic hits without making a move or reacting at all. Anthony and Bryant's latest video came only a day after the two ladies made a first attempt at the challenge.
Although Bryant has had quite a challenging year, she has always enjoyed the support of Anthony.
In the video, the two ladies were hit with classic tunes that included "Back to Life," "Me, Myself & I," and "Feels Good."
The last song was, however, the breaking point for Anthony who let out a laugh as she danced to the tune. This automatically made Bryant the winner of the challenge. In her caption, Anthony wrote,
"Who do you think wins?"
During a virtual interview with ET in April, Anthony revealed how she was keeping in touch with some of her famous friends.
She explained that while she often calls Kelly Rowland and Ciara on Facetime, she spends a lot of time speaking to Kim Kardashian over the phone.
Anthony also noted that she was always checking up on Bryant who had only just lost her husband, Kobe, and daughter, Gianna, in a helicopter crash.
Anthony said that she always prayed for Bryant and ultimately tried to support and keep a positive mind for her.
On January 26, Kobe and Gianna Bryant were killed in a fatal helicopter crash that claimed the lives of seven other people who were on board.
A few days after the tragic event, Anthony took to Instagram where she shared a photo of her and Carmelo Anthony's son rocking a t-shirt with Kobe's jersey number.
While adding a caption, Anthony showed support for her friend by shouting out to Bryant whom she described as the strongest woman she knows.
Although Bryant has had quite a challenging year, she has always enjoyed the support of Anthony who has proven to be a true friend even in the darkest moments.
