Considering all of the drama that has been surrounding reality television star Lala Vasquez-Anthony and her NBA playing hubby Carmelo Anthony, I was pleasantly surprised to see her joking around and making light of it all in my Twitter timeline yesterday. If you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of days, things got a bit heated between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett during the recent Knicks vs Celtics game after Garnett allegedly told Melo that his wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios”. Since then, countless rumors swirled surrounding the current status of Lala and Carmelo’s relationship. Some even suggested that the two were headed for divorce.
While these rumors have yet to be confirmed or denied, one thing we know for sure that the NBA wasn’t too happy with the way that Melo responded to K.G.’s antagonistic behavior. According to ESPN, the 28-year-old small forward has been suspended without pay for one game as a direct result of him confronting K.G. after the game near the team’s locker room.
“There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game,” NBA executive vice president basketball operations Stu Jackson said in a statement. “Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday’s game and therefore a suspension was warranted.”
While there seems to be some semi-serious consequences to Melo’s actions, Lala is taking it all in stride, refusing to allow the current circumstances to bring her down.
“Not for nothing,but we ALL deserve a check or some free cereal 4all the publicity we’ve given Honey Nut Cheerios! LOL
#cantbelieveeverything,” the reality star tweeted last night right after she expressed her excitement about co-hosting the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball with Terrence J.
Most people didn’t believe Kevin really said that she tasted like Cheerios, but it was pretty funny. While the rumors that are currently circulating about her and Melo seem pretty damaging, we’re glad to see that she isn’t allowing any of it to get her down.
