La La recently dropped by at The Arsenio Hall Show in order to promote her new book, “The Love Playbook.”  The new author also offered some advice with regards to relationships.  La La also revealed how she met Carmelo and what are her thoughts about cheating.  She also provides tips to women who want to “attract a baller.”

Where did she and her husband Carmelo Anthony met?  La La said:

“A mutual friend of ours, DJ Clue, who I was actually doing a television show with, was like, ‘I want to introduce you to Carmelo Anthony, this basketball player.’ And as soon as I heard the word ‘basketball player’ I was like, ‘Absolutely not! I do not want to meet a basketball player,’ because you hear the stereotypes and things people say. But we were friends first and I talk about that in the book.. how when you develop a friendship with someone first, it helps you last longer in a relationship.”

What can she say about women who offer their men free passes to cheat?  She said:

“I think that is the absolute worst idea of all time! I just think you’re opening the floodgates to a lot of problems. Why would you allow your man to cheat on you and be okay with that? That just destroys the relationship! That’s my opinion so I’m totally against that.”

What is her advice to women who wants to attract a baller?  La La responded:

“You don’t try to get a baller. Just be confident in yourself when you go out there and you’ll attract great energy and you’ll get the right kind of attention. Guys can tell when you’re desperate and thirsty and sometimes guys use that for negative things.”

La La Anthony and her husband Carmelo Anthony have experienced ups and downs in their marriage.  However, these things only made their relationship stronger.  In 2004, there was an incident which could have destroyed Carmelo career.

According to reports, La La ex-fiancé and Carmelo had a fight in a certain club.  Some people adored him for defending his woman while others fear that he might lose his endorsement opportunities.  Later on, when Carmelo was interviewed he said that “he only did what any man would have done for their woman.”

Now, despite the fact that the couple is having a strong relationship, La La still recalls the abuse from her ex.  During her interview at Sway In The Morning to promote her new book, she said:

“You know and it was my first love and I felt like he was controlling me because he loved me and that’s how he’s showing me that he loved me. And it was later on that I realized that was completely wrong and that’s a message I want to get out to young women out there. That’s not love.”

She also chatted about the worst moments in this abuse, she revealed:

“Throwing plates of food at me. Breaking glasses. Always being really angry and upset. I was like, ‘This can’t be love.’ Love shouldn’t feel like this. I would tell myself that and continue to stay. It could be the smallest thing–that could be your breaking point. And I remember calling my dad like, ‘Dad, I need you to come and get me.’ I hadn’t even talked to my dad because I had isolated anyone who wasn’t a fan of the relationship. Anyone that didn’t say anything good, I didn’t want to talk to them. I said, ‘Dad, you got to come get me.’ Literally, my dad just got in the car and drove up there to come pick me up. It’s a defining moment to my life that I’ll never forget.”

What are your thoughts about the past abuse?

cgnexclusiveCarmeloatthebronxzoo Carmelo Anthony and his son Kiyan at Tiger Mountain.

On June 11th, 2013 one of Celebs Got News sources spotted Carmelo Anthony and his family at The Bronx Zoo in New York City. According to our sources, Carmelo was accompanied by his Mother In Law, Wife La La and son Kiyan. La La was spotted taking pictures of her family and enjoying her son and husband interact with each other. They were at the Zoo for nearly two hours.


The Anthony family  were given a private tour  and escorted to all of the Zoo’s attractions. Our sources say, the Anthony’s were very welcoming and down-to- earth interacting with the Zoo staff.

It looks like Kiyan was kicking his fathers butt. For all you Carmelo Anthony fans, we believes that Carmelo is a great dad, wouldn’t you agree?



La La and NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony are both busy with their respective careers.  However, they always want to make sure that they can spend some time together.  Last night, the couple was spotted in Manhattan streets having a night out with their son Kiyan.  They were celebrating the win of Knicks over Boston Celtics during their Playoff Game 1.  Carmelo scored 36 points on their game.  Kiyan was wearing his dad’s Knicks jersey.

On the other hand, La La has just finished 2 movies and it will be released later this year.  She also has an unpcoming book deal and a new fragrance deal.  When she was asked about her secret in balancing her career and marriage, she said:

“Remembering to put the marriage first and remembering to work as hard in the marriage as we do in our careers and being parents and everything else. He’s traveling all over the world being a basketball player. I’m working between New York and L.A. So, it gets difficult sometimes when you’re trying to juggle that and be married. What I’ve found through the years is that as long as I’m aligned with God and my family everything else will fall into place the way it’s supposed to. So I focus my energy on those two things first and everything else falls in place.”

Congrats to Carmelo and his team!

Someone is going to be missing a check this month. That someone would be none other than Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, who was suspended for one game without pay for battling Celtic Kevin Garnett on Monday night. His explosive, explicitly laced rant cannot even be repeated here it was so bombastic!

According to accounts, Kevin Garnett had more than a few choice words to say about Anthony’s wife, but there have been no confirmations on what exactly was said. The suspension on Carmelo begins on January 10th when the Knicks are scheduled to face off against the Indiana Pacers. Will there be a rebuttal on this incident?

Stay tuned.
