Reality star LaLa Anthony is sometimes referred to as the First Lady of the NBA due to her marriage to New York Knicks small forward, Carmelo Anthony. But when you ask the 34-year-old Brooklyn native which perks she believes married life has afforded her, she admits that she’s just happy to be married to her best friend.
“Well you know for me I’ve been with my husband for 10 years now and we’ve been married for three and after all those years really much doesn’t change when you get married—but it is something inside you that knows, ‘I’m somebody’s wife now’ and that is a little bit of a bigger responsibility,” she told The Jasmine Brand.
“But, I’m married to my best friend and I’ve been with him for so long… since we were kids in a sense, so it’s great that I’ve been with the same person for such a long time,” she continued.
She also offered a few words of advice for young girls.
“I would just definitely say just be confident in yourself, be a leader not a follower. You know nowadays—I even see it with my nieces, so many of these girls are talking about each other and being catty and hating on each other—why not get together and support each other and uplift each other just like we do at an event like this. You know you get so much further that way than ‘kinda’ trying to bring people down.”
Sounds like great advice!
Watch LaLa’s interview on the next page.
Thanks to reality TV, we’ve heard like a million stories about cheating athletes. But if you ask LaLa Anthony how she feels about those stories and whether or not she worries about her husband, Carmelo Anthony, being faithful when he’s out on the road, she says that she tries not to concern herself with it. During a recent appearance on Bethenny, LaLa dished on being a secure basketball wife and the importance of sex in a relationship. Check out some of her interview highlights below.
On not worrying about Melo cheating:
“I’m just very secure in myself. I cant worry about what’s happening on the road. I know our relationship. I know we have a great relationship. He’s my best friend and that’s what I put my energy on. If we think too much about what’s going on when we are not there and checking phones and cracking email codes, that will drive a woman crazy. You have to be secure in yourself and hope that’s the best.”
On traveling with him:
“Sometimes I go on the road. I work so much that I am just not able to pick up and go on the road but if he is going to a fun place, Chicago, Miami somewhere that I want to visit, yeah I’ll jump on the road and hang out.”
On the importance of sex in relationships:
“Wow that’s a good one. I love sex. I think emotional definitely but I love sex, I think it’s very important.I think they are definitely related if you guys are compatible on an emotional level you guys will just be magnetic and great. One thing with sex with me is, I’m not into scheduling sex now. I am just not into that. I don’t think that’s Hot, I like being spontaneous and things just happen and you’re like whoaaaa.”

She has already used her platform on reality TV to pioneer her new cosmetics line, Motives. But now as a spokeswoman for Caress Body Wash, Anthony can continuously interact with an audience by showing “women how fragrance can inspire them to live fabulously,” said TheYBF. She will post weekly videos to talk about the latest fashion and beauty trends on Caress’ Facebook page.

Is it okay for a woman to have sex on the first date? An age old dating and relationships question with an answer that is almost always contingent upon the individual’s personal beliefs and convictions. Lala Anthony, who recently penned relationships book, The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex and Happiness, took a stab at the question during an interview with Access Hollywood.
“The number one rule I did put out is to make them wait a little bit just because they will respect you more and appreciate you more. If you give it all up in the beginning, then what do they have to look forward to?”
She went on to say that although she doesn’t recommend first date sex, in the event that things go there, all hope for the relationship may not be lost.
“I think it can work. I wouldn’t say it’s a good idea; you probably shouldn’t do it, but things happen,” she added.
During the interview Lala also cleared up rumors that the book is a tell-all about her relationship with hubby Carmelo Anthony.
“I’ve always been that girl that all of my friends come to for advice about relationships, about dating, about life. So I figured put it into a fun book, but it’s not a tell-all about my marriage to ‘Melo.’”
“’Melo is so supportive of everything I’m doing. I do talk about my relationship and marriage to ‘Melo in reference to advice and things. I want to be honest, but…it’s not that kind of book. It’s a fun book for women to just get advice to learn about love, happiness and sex.”

Oh, Heeeey…It’s You Again: 10 “Celebrities” You See Everywhere, But Don’t Really Know Why They’re Famous
Before you get your panties all in a knot, this isn’t about really dissing anybody. But have you ever noticed certain faces and people everywhere, but don’t really know why they’re such a big deal all of a sudden? You can probably blame it on blogs and Instagram, but it’s something that’s been going on for years and years. Hence the rise of folks like Paris Hilton, everyone from Laguna Beach and The Hills, and other people who are famous just for being in front of a camera. Some of these people finally did something with their talents, while others are still just trying to be seen everywhere to make you care. And it seems to be working. Here are 10 celebrities who are famous but we still aren’t 100 percent sure why…
So Ora is one of the “First Ladies” of Roc Nation, but is it just me, or do you rarely hear her music on the radio? Maybe she’ll have the same type of upward mobility that Rihanna’s career eventually had after “Pon de Replay,” but for right now, I don’t get it. I see pictures of her coming out of every place, yet I’ve never seen her perform at an awards show. Every time I turn around on fashion site’s, I’m being asked what I think of her style, but I’ve only seen one of her videos on MTV. She’s gorgeous, but honestly, I don’t know this baby from Adam. She needs to shake Jay-Z to put her music on somebody’s station because I don’t know anyone that can name more than maybe two of her songs. But we’ll see what the future holds for her…her vocals aren’t bad!
‘That M-F***er F***ed Your Wife:’ Opponent Taunts Carmelo Anthony On The Court, LaLa Retaliates On Instagram
It seems that New York Knicks player Carmelo Anthony may have made a huge mistake when he allowed Celtics player Kevin Garnett to push his buttons earlier this year. In case you missed it, during a Knicks vs. Celtics game in January, things got a little heated between Kevin Garnett an Carmelo Anthony. Following the game, Melo reportedly attempted to confront Garnett in the stadium’s parking garage and near a locker room, which resulted in Melo’s one-game suspension. This type of aggression seemed really out of character for the 28-year-old small forward. It was later revealed that trash-talking Garnett said something about Melo’s reality tv star wife LaLa, which pushed him over the edge. Rumors implied that Kevin Garnett told Anthony that “LaLa tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.” Melo told media outlets that the rumors were false, but refused to share what Garnett had actually said about his wife.
Now that others see LaLa is a sore subject for Melo, they’ve immaturely jumped on the bandwagon. On Wednesday at a playoffs game, Celtics player Jordan Crawford told Carmelo:
“That muthaf**ker fu*ked your wife!” referencing the Kevin Garnett drama.
Thankfully, Melo didn’t overreact to the childish behavior like he’d done previously. Instead, he calmed down and kept it moving. When reporters asked him about the drama following the game, Melo responded:
“I’m not thinking about Jordan Crawford. Not at this point in time. I’ll tell you that . . . I don’t think he deserves for you to be typing [about him].”
Fellow basketball boo Gabrielle Union cosigned.
Real mature, Jordan.
Back in January during a Knicks vs. Celtics game, things got a bit heated between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett after Anthony fouled Garnett. The tension was said to have gotten even worse once the game ended, as Melo, still upset over whatever comments Garnett made to him on the court, attempted to confront his Celtics opponent, which got him suspended. Carmelo’s reaction to Garnett caused many to wonder what Kevin had actually said to him, and somehow it got out that Kevin told Carmelo that his wife Lala “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.” As a result of the drama, speculations regarding a possible divorce between Lala and Melo began to circulate. In a recent interview with Ear Candy on Demand, the reality star finally addressed the controversy. Here’s some of what she had to say.
On Kevin Garnett telling Melo she tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios:
“I was the one thrown in the middle of everything, just because… I had to be able to laugh about it because that was a little crazy. Someone says ‘Your wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios’ and everyone believing that and running with it. That’s not what was said. Kevin Garnett did not say that about me. He just said some things to my husband that he didn’t like, that he felt like one man doesn’t say to another. They’re perfectly fine now. It happens in the heat of battle. People don’t know what goes on on that court. Garnett’s known for [trash talking]. So it got under my husband’s skin and things happen but it wasn’t about me.”
On finding humor in the controversy:
“To be in the middle of that whole entire thing you had to laugh. If you don’t laugh that stuff will start messing with your head and making you feel upset and down so I laugh about it. I have great friends and family who are sending me pictures on Honey Nut Cheerios boxes, and we’re making jokes about it. I mean, you gotta laugh at stuff… I’m like hey, he could have said a lot worse things and people could’ve made up a lot worse things.”
On divorce rumors:
“We’ve been together for 10 years and I always say if people tell you their marriage is perfect they’re lying. We’ve been together for ten years. We go through ups we go through downs just like everyone else. But we’re doing great and we’re raising an amazing son Kiyan whose about to turn 6 in like a week. He’s so sweet and such a good kid. So definitely we’re working through it and things are good.”
We’re glad to hear that all is well in the Anthony household.
