Carmelo & LaLa

A lot of people have been talking about these two lately because there have been a couple of stories leaking about Melo’s infidelity.  Some say Lala is crazy because she wants people to believe that everything is good in their lives and that she loves him more than he even cares about her.  I don’t think I agree with the latter in full but it does seem like they both have so much going on in their separate lives that when they’re together, it can look a little forced.

    On point…and there’s some hindsight here too. Chad & Evelyn…fast forward through their wedding & STRAIGHT to the headbutt that ended the marriage in a month. WTG MN! Now, on that Justin & Jessica thing, I will just say a prayer.

    i have always said kendu was a user, bringing his kids into the breadline also..punk..hope she is wise enough to not be careless with her money

  • Jacquiline Perkins

    Jay Z – Bey looks forced

  • mik bailey

    I think LaLa saw a gold mine and latched on to it, like Shaq’s wife and countless others…..

    I think Chad cares about Evelyn, but not enough to change his ways. She doesn’t inspire that in him. She probably cares about Chad too, but appearances are way too important to her. Lala is just plain boring, and Carmelo seems like he has the most uptight handlers in place keeping him from being too hood. I have never heard him say anything remotely profound, unlike Amare Stoudemire or Dwyane Wade.

    Luda and his wife Eudoxie chemistry isn’t there because of the culture difference.  She is not an African American woman nor does she understand the social experience of being black.

    idk I think for anyone in front of a camera there’s and extent of awkwardness, especially at those events, unless you just love the camera….then again Kimmy K loves the camera and there was 0 chemistry with Kris Humphries. go figure.

    You can’t judge a book by its cover. Look at couples who show affection every second yet divorced. Seal and heidi klum, Eva longoria and Tony, Will and Jada(I think they are separated). Let me take my parent for example, been married for 25 years now. My dad is reserved, somewhat shy. My mom is the outgoing one, always talking about how much she loves my dad, people from outside will think she’s more into my dad than him into her. When they go out, my dad barely shows any affection. But, at home, I see how my dad makes my mom feel special even after six children. He still surprises her with little notes or cards saying how much he loves her, appreciates her and how beautiful she is. A lot of time, couples who are not all over each other are the real couples because they don’t need to prove anything.

    • breezin

       Good examples.  I also think that Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell fall into that category.  It’s interesting that the author noted how RR seemed more concerned about her poses than paying attention to Jerry.  As a model/actress, her livelihood literally depends on how she presents herself to the audience.  I actually get the feeling that she returns more of her husband’s attention when the cameras are away.

  • DoinMe

    Beyonce and Jay-Z. Every time they are photographed together, he looks bored and she looks over it. But Jay is ALWAYS cheesing and smiling in picts without Beyonce.

  • Mhmm

    I know they are young, but you forgot Chris and Karrueche. They seem more like buddies than an actual couple. Moving on, I like Lala but she definitely seems to be in love with Melo (I hate when she calls him Mel too as someone else stated) while he seems as if he barely likes her. I like Emily too, but she definitely in it alone. Fab should just let her go and stop stringing her along, getting her hopes up. I honestly forgot about Luda and his boo until seeing this list. E and Chad just need to hang it up already!

  • SHERYL

    She looks like Fab’s mom in that picture…

  • Dee

    I’ve seen Niecy Nash and her family on a few reality tv shows, and I definitely see the disconnect between her husband and the rest of her family. He seems to be pretty into her, but not their overall situation. When you’re entering a blended family, I believe it’s up to the adult to put forth the effort and show interest in the family as a whole, especially when it comes to older children like Niecy’s. And I just don’t see her husband putting forth that effort. It’s almost like he thinks, I’ve got the mom, so my work here is done. No, it’s more to it than that, bruh.

  • nativefloridagirl

    Where are Chrissy and Jim Jones?

    • <3

      nah, they definitely DON’T belong on the list (in my opinion)… from the way Chrissy acted on the show, she looooves herself some Jimmy! it seems like he wasn’t expressing his love just to act tough on camera tho

      • nativefloridagirl

        LOL, that’s exactly why I think they should be on the list. I wonder if he’s just keeping this going to keep the show going sometimes.

  • Clarosa

    what about john legend and his boo?

  • Grits8686

    IJS how many of you bloggers/”journalist “have found true love? Worry about the chemistry in your relationship -if you have one.

  • LiiSH

    I agree with Chad and Evelyn. She needs to be a kept woman and he is the kind of man who loves to keep his women. Chad has a history of extravagance with women. (Remember when he was on Dancing with the stars? He bought his partner an expensive a** piece of jewelery just because). I don’t know if the way Chad treats her is tied up in some kind of feelings. I believe he likes her and he might even love her in a way, but there is no denying that he is the kind of man who loves to spoil the women around him. Ev strikes me as the type who who trade that in lieu of love. The look good together though.

    Emily B is a cute girl but the fact remains that if you ask a man if he is involved and he adamantly states that he is Solo Dolo, y’all are not in a relationship. It has to be mutual.If he was some broke dude from up the street not claiming her, I BET this situation would not be acceptable.

  • Fiona

    Uhm… I don’t know, people express love in different
    ways and some choose not to place their love and affection on display.  I can only use my relationship as an example
    because that is the only relationship I intimately familiar with.  Many people would say I am a cute girl.  Most people would say he is a very attractive
    guy.  I am very affectionate (even with
    friends and family) and am often seen kissing, hugging and doting on my guy.  He is an introvert and is not into displaying
    affection.  So if you saw us you’d assume
    I’m way more into him than he is into me or maybe he’s not into me at all.  Those are the assumptions.  Now here are the facts.  This man pursued me heavily for a year before
    I committed to a relationship with him… flowers, trips, gifts, etc… real old
    school courtship… he even sends my mom gifts, flowers, etc.  He pays a substantial portion of my bills and
    has recently started discussing marriage, children and a future together.  He always tells me I am beautiful, smart, funny,
    etc.  He takes time out of busy schedule
    for multiple weekly date nights and pretty much tries to make me happy in every
    way possible.  So what I am saying is, don’t
    judge a book (or in this case a relationship) by its cover.    

    • emily

      wow you lucky lady:)

  • skylark149

    We don’t know what goes on with these couples behind closed doors. Just because “we think” they don’t look right together doesn’t mean they aren’t meant to be. Some people are uncomfortable having their picture taken when they know it’s because people will be judging them as a couple.
    Body language only reflects how we are feeling at the moment. It may have absolutely nothing to do with who we are with. It may just be a reaction to the situation we are in at the moment.

    You forgot Kevin Hart and Emiko. She is definitely not into him and is just using him to get into the spotlight.

    • MadsenCadetFicklin

      You got that right

  • Deepthinkerwithddz

    Haters pay attention: Chad loves Latin women…. so much he changed HIS name. Weirdo… Evelyn has worked her whole life to get wifed up by “baller”. Chad is a 10 x upgrade from Antuan gambling a$$. He will always keep you laughing , has money, and is very competitive which means he is good in bed. Before he got with her he revealed his metrosexual high heel fetish. Evelyn owns a shoe store……. let’s be smart on how we view things people.

    • MysteryGuest

      You definitely have a point there DeepThinker…this could be a match made in heaven!

      • Tussy78

        I’m sorry, but how another muth*****a gonna say that a couple lacks chemistry. None of these people have to be with their partners, so obviously they see something in eachother. It really does not matter what someone outside of the equation thinks or feels. My hope for these people is that they cease putting their personal relationships on front street for the world to know, and stop getting with people based on what they think will look good to the media. Reality is will that person still be there if your broke and you can no longer wipe your own a**. You give the world that much power, they can and will destroy you.

  • JACKIE

    LET ADD JAY-Z AND BEY BEY TO THE LIST…THE BABY WAS surprise ?

  • JACKIE

    MARY IS A you girl who don’t know what REAL LOVE IS but if she can control it…its OKAY

  • JACKIE

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH EVELYN all that stuff you talk about others and NO RESPECT for her self……WOW sale your self to the highest bidder 

    • Deepthinkerwithddz

      I can tell you are not an attractive women. One thing you cant deny about Evelyn is she is a beautiful woman. When was the last time you got to be selective on the men you date, and only exclusively date professional athletes? OK she has a sexual past but if you have ever had sex before you were married than you are a sinner as well. No sin is greater than the next. Truth

      • LawGirl713

        I can tell you are a stupid  female who does not know how to differentiate between the word “women” and “woman”; all the while failing miserably while trying to insult a woman you don’t know. My suggestion to you is that before you incorrectly label said “women” as unattractive, you learn to use and spell contractions first.  What does it say about a woman who only exclusively dates professional athletes? It says that she has nothing, latches on to anyone who professionally plays games, and odds are – uneducated. What does it say about a “women” who can’t use proper grammar, but talks about only dating professional athletes? It proves my point. Truth

        Is this the part where I drop the mic now?

        • LALATAREA

           daaaaaamnn lol sorry i had to do it. but what else cud u expect from a woman with deep thinker and double d’s in her screen name?

  • Kiki

    Well i seen luda and his chick several times here in atl before she was “announced to the world” or in pap pics and they looked so cute and in to each other.

  • <3

    Chad and Evenlyn remind me of Jason and Kelly’s relationship from The Game. They’re probably really not in love right now but if they stick it out long enough, it could turn out to be something special…but of course the truth will be revealed & it probably wont last. 

    best of luck to them though…

  • CriticXtreme

    These couples seem to bring the hot and stop when they marry. It is not worth it. 

  • Knox

    all of these couples love each let them love their lives in peace.

      That doesn’t even need to be pointed out lmao

    • Smarty86

      Exactly..tamar looks like she likes it rough and vince is a big softy..he gets all weird acting and uncomfortable when she talks about sex and he tries to downplay it…dissin her..n she seems like a freak and he don’t know how to give it to her..I think vince is an asexual church boy…maybe Shes offended by ppl saying she married him for the $ , becuz its tru and it hurts that the truth has been magnified.

    Chemistry is chemistry, the author clearly stated that these couples could be madly in love.

    Emily w/ Fab for the fame. 

  • http://twitter.com/QueenzBee2011 QueenB2011

    really?? Bey is head over heels over Jay & he too over her. their video crazy in love, her song hopelessly in love, her performance full of emotions, def a connection. 

    • http://twitter.com/QueenzBee2011 QueenB2011

      “dangerously in love” lol

    • Ay

      Bey is Jay’s “groupie”, her words.

      • Nefijones1

        I think that is sweet!

    • That’s what entertainers do

      Not to say that I disagree with you but you can’t really base anything off of her performances–she’s putting on a SHOW. She shows just as much emotion in songs about heartbreak where her husband or boyfriend of six years betrays her trust (like Resentment). She’s an entertainer…that’s what she does. Just saying lol…

      • Jolie

        I love your comment! When she sings Resentment live I feel like I did her wrong …I start counting my CD’s like “I KNOW I bought them all, why you mad at me?” LOL

        • LT

          HAHAHAAA!!! BEST comment I’ve ever read.

      • iReezy

        Beyonce sings every song with strength and true conviction, but she only cries when she sing Flaws and All or Dangerously In Love.  That’s, in my opinion, not an act, that’s truly feeling the lyrics, realizing the truth that they hold for her and picturing in her mind who they were written about.  She did have a hand in writing both of those songs, with Jay in mind, so the emotionally naturally comes out.  #TrueLove

    • Jolie

      I’m not saying they don’t love one another but I honestly do not see that spark between them. For example, when they’re out together, her bodyguards will help her up/down the stairs and I suppose that is their job BUT wouldn’t Jay want to do that for his wife? I’m def not saying that they have to be PDA fiends like Nick and Mariah though lol

      • LiiSH

        I can see that too. i feel like they are programmed not to show any spark in public. (I feel like he is that way out of respect for her feelings about PDA otherwise he would be flaunting that lol) The few times they were caught off guard though they looked truly happy and even kind of giddy. In Fade to Black, the way they looked at each other was something priceless.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IVQXAQI6NPUEUXEHQR2BMGUKUU Sister

    better hook up with someone who helps you stay clean and gives you a reason to break bad habits (Kendu + Mary) than hook up with someone who leads you to your death,( i won’t name names)

  • Shay

    I agree with everyone except Neicy and LaLa.  Having said that, we don’t know what’s going on behind closed doors.  Even reality shows only show what they want us to know.  I’m not an affectionate person in public, so it always look like he’s more into me than I am into him.  But, trust me, I’m hooked.

    I believe Emily and Fab’s relationship is only in her head. I believe they had an arrangement to have a child, that’s it.

    I think you’re spot on about Mary and Kendu. Mary said she didn’t love herself and was thrown back when Kendu asked to marry her.

    Lala and Carmelo have ZERO chemistry, I always said this.

    I believe Justin and Jessica started as a PR relationship.

    Of course Jerry is way more into Rebecca, she’s a freakin’ model, he was the fat kid growing up remember?

      Bey and j shulda been on there but ppl are to big of @$$ kissers to put em on the list ..especially after the baby , which I guess consummates their chemistry.

      And lala and Carmelo aka MEL..+( I hate when she calls him Mel btw) ..he seems so annoyed by her and turned off..she acts so needy around him and keeps struggling for his love..its quite interesting..I can’t stand her voice btw and her extreme thirstiness like running around in her lingerie..

    I think you could add Sherri Shepard and Sal..she is the POSTER child of deperation to get married. She BEGGED him for a ring on the HGTV Christmas special and his response was ‘we’ll see” with a look of what am I getting myself into. She appears to be very INSECURE, and IGNORANT at best on The View. He seems to always have a stupid grin of okay, okay I wll enjoy this ride and let her work like a horse to tkae care of me! Her and Neicy were both competing with each other to see who could get down the isle first.

      You hit the nail on the head (ROTFL). I don’t see why anyone would marry either of them except to ‘enjoy the ride’, as you so aptly put it. Their wigs alone scare me!

  • Honeybee30

    I don’t understand why Jerry O’Connell & Rebecca Romjin on this list. Jerry adores her and loves her, plus they have kids together. He is a cool guy. Rebecca was unhappy with John Stamos.

    • Squeezablechic

      Rebecca seems a little off to me, like she doesn’t know what she wants. John seems like a nice guy; and she left him for Mr. Boring.

    • FromUR2UB

      Without living in the house with them and watching them day to day, they look genuine to me.  Their age difference is not so noticeable because they look close in age, and other than the fact that she’s better looking than he is, they appear happy together and like they truly enjoy each other’s company.

  • KatchKenda

    I agree with almost everyone on the list except Luda & his girl Fab. There is no chemistry between Ev & Chad. None of us believe that relationship. Kendu def seems like a leach. I’ve never had a good feeling about him. Emily is dumb. The rest of the list is beyond accurate.

  • Sky

    I especially agree with what the author said about Chad & Evelyn….those two are just painful to watch together!

    • jus sayin

      exactly y even get married if ur just going to be in an open relationship, idk any woman with self esteem who will willing go into a marriage knowing he is going to be cheating. what kind of example is she setting for her daughter allowing a man to treat her any o kind of way this is all for money and publicity

    • Hollywood 256

      I agree as well. She checked him on how to act while engaged but will allow him to “lay up” with whomever he wants after they get married!?!?! Makes no sense and bet there will be a fake reunion with her and Jennifer after her and Chad either call the wedding off or get a divorce! #BOOHOO

      Sky,

      I am in COMPLETE agreement with you on the Chad & Evelyn hookup..I mean relationship.

    • Deepthinkerwithddz

      I dont agree with you on this couple. Both are from Chicago. Punk is a very good looking mixed mamas boy that treats ladies with a lot of respect. He is a Harvard lawyer by trade, and has a aswesome body. Jennifer has been improving not declining. She made her transformation after they got together. That man changed her live too. Aint nothing like a good man who doesnt want to compete with his wife.
