Instead of getting all bent out of shape yesterday when the Internet decided to run with rumors about LaLa Anthony supposedly having an affair with rapper Jermaine “Maino” Coleman, the former reality TV personality, and her husband, Carmelo Anthony chose to let everyone know that all is well in their world with a lighthearted video.

In the brief Instagram clip, the Anthonys rap along to Meek Mill, Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj’s “All Eyes On You.”

All eyes on us ❤️

As you may recall, the rumors began when a woman claiming to be the mother of Coleman’s daughter left a scathing comment beneath one of Anthony’s Instagram photos accusing her of sleeping with the rapper.

It’s great to see that these two aren’t tripping over the pettiness.

5 Reasons We’re Not Buying Rumors About LaLa Cheating With Maino

If you just so happened to creep over to Twitter today while your employer’s back was turned, you likely saw that both Carmelo Anthony and his wife, Lala Anthony, are trending on Twitter. Considering that basketball season has long been over, and the “Power” finale aired last weekend, you, like us, probably came to the conclusion that Black Twitter is up to their shenanigans.

So the story goes like this: a woman by the name of Patrice, who is claiming to be the mother of rapper Jermaine “Maino” Coleman’s daughter, lashed out at the actress on Instagram earlier this week. Apparently, Patrice is under the impression that LaLa has been creeping with her child’s father. You can peep her full rant, which she left beneath one of Lala’s photos below.




Once Patrice’s allegations successfully went viral across all social media platforms, an anonymous source came forward claiming to have seen Maino and Lala together on a date earlier this week. While my mama has always taught me not to vouch for anyone’s penis, vagina and what they may or may not be doing with it behind closed doors, I have to respectfully call bullsh-t on this entire situation.

Keep reading to see the five reasons why we’re not running with these rumors.

How Carmelo Anthony Reacted To LaLa’s Nude Scene In The New Season Of “Power”

In a recent interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, LaLa Anthony let the world know just how serious she is about pursuing a career in acting. Not only did she ditch her VH1 reality show to be taken seriously by casting directors, but she also ditched her top while filming the new season of “Power.” Apparently, the season two storyline called for a sex scene featuring her character, Lakeisha, and Mrs. Anthony dived in head first. Keep reading to find out how her husband Carmelo Anthony reacted to the scene and more.

On feeling pressured about her physical appearance:

That’s women in general. It’s a constant struggle to keep everything together and I think all women go through that in different ways.

I just want to feel good about myself and I know when I’m falling off. I fell off the bandwagon a little bit now so I started a new program today to try to get back on. 

On the benefits of having a vagina:

It’s power. I wrote a book called The Power Playbook [laughs]. It’s just unfortunate that most women don’t understand that and use it to get the power.

On her success having nothing to do with hubby Carmelo Anthony:

Melo and I have a great relationship, but we keep our businesses separate. I have my own businesses and he has his. I have the make-up line, the clothing line, the book, the acting, the producing. I feel like I’m doing well independently on my own and then it’s great that we can come together and be a force together. I have my own sh-t going on.

On being reluctant about dating Melo:

[DJ] Clue introduced us. He was the one like, “Yo, my man been watching you on TV.” I was like, “Nah, I’m not going to mess around with a basketball player.” They come with such a stigma. I didn’t want that.

On reality TV damaging her acting career:

So I’m not doing the reality show anymore.

Reality TV is not for me anymore. I loved it. I had a great run, but I don’t want to expose so much of my personal life constantly.

I found that reality TV hurt me in acting, which is what I’m really trying to do right now. It hurts you in the acting world. They look at you like, “Oh, that’s the reality girl.” Then they don’t take you seriously or your audition has to be 100 times better than anyone else just so they look at you. I had to let that go to dive in and be taken seriously.

On struggling to be submissive:

It is hard, but I had to teach myself that you have to do that sometimes.

In the book, I talk about there is a such thing as being too independent. I see that with a lot of women I’m around who are successful and have careers. You want to wear the pants in a sense and you can’t take that from your man or whoever you’re dating.

I think you should be submissive, at times, to any man that you respect.

On going topless for the new season of “Power”:

On “Power” this season I have my first sex scene. Have you guys seen “Power” sex scenes? [Melo said] he understands that it’s my job, but he doesn’t want to watch it.

It’s so funny, 50 was like, “You’re going to be out of here after this episode!”

Well, one thing about “Power,” to be on the show you have to sign a nudity clause off the bat because, at some point, everybody has to show something. It was tasteful and respectful so I felt good about it and I’m acting. I’m taking it serious and it comes with the territory.

She also talked to Latina Mag about balancing family time:
On her perfect night with her family: “My husband, my son and I have the best time when it’s just the three of us. It’s nice to all be together, put a movie on, lie in the bed and laugh. That’s my idea of a perfect, fun time.”

She has also starred in her own reality docu drama called  LaLa’s Full Court Life on VH1. Her other acting  roles have included  Baggage Claim and Think Like A Man Too. And while she’s not too busy acting and writing she is also designing for her clothing line Fifth and Mercer.

LaLa Anthony is a successful and beautiful television personality, actress, and mother.  She started her career off in radio and then eventually landed a position as a VJ  co-hosting MTV’s Direct Effect and Total Request. She made her film debut in 2001 in Two Can Play That Game and her other film credits include You Got Served, Think Like a Man  and Think Like a Man Too to name a few. She later became engaged to Carmelo Anthony in 2004 and  they have one son named Kiyan Carmelo Anthony who was born on March 7, 2007. Some may remember their very public wedding. They were married by Micheal Eric Dyson at Cipriani’s in New York and the ceremony was filmed by VH1 and aired as part of a reality series called LaLas Full Court Wedding and the continuation series was called LaLa’s Full Court Life. LaLa balances motherhood, being a wife, and being a full time working mom beautifully.

In her cover story article in the August issue of Latina magazine she said:

On her perfect night with her family: “My husband, my son and I have the best time when it’s just the three of us. It’s nice to all be together, put a movie on, lie in the bed and laugh. That’s my idea of a perfect, fun time.”

On being ready to have another child: “I do start feeling bad because [my son, Kiyan, 7, will] ask about a baby [sibling] and I feel a little selfish. If I did have another child, the reason would be that I wouldn’t want my son to be alone in the world as an only child. But we’ll see.”

Mommy And Me: Ciara And Baby Future, Lala And Kiyan Celebrate Her 29th Birthday

If Ciara is utterly devastated about her breakup with former fiancé Future, she’s certainly not letting her social media presence reflect that. And that’s the way it should be, honestly. Instagram, Facebook and Twitter can be deceptive but Ciara looks happy these days. And this past weekend the singer and new mother celebrated her 29th birthday.

Instead of hitting the club, like most 29-year-olds would, Ciara spent the day with her son Future, best friend, LaLa Anthony, and her son Kiyan at the Central Park Zoo. Can I be transparent? It’s nice that Ciara celebrated her birthday and I generally like her and all but, on the real, the only reason I’m posting this is because little baby Future is thee cutest.
