This season Lala and Carmelo Anthony are all smiles, hugs and kisses. When you take a moment to check in with the haute couple about how they met and the state of how they continue to keep Lala’s Full Court filled up with love here’s what Lala recalls upon her first meeting with burgeoning NBA star via her book, The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex, and Happiness…

On how they first met and what Lala felt:

The book details how they first met in a Manhattan club, introduced by MTV’s DJ Clue. They were engaged for six years before their 2010 New York wedding. Anthony was a rookie with Denver and LaLa writes she wasn’t interested at first because her father told her never to date an NBA player. LaLa also admits in the book she never would have gotten involved had she known the truth — that Anthony was only 19 years old when they met. (She was 22.)– New York Post

On how they keep their marriage strong through all ups and downs:

“He is definitely true to his name,” she said about her husband. “He is super mellow, super chill. It takes a lot to kind of rile him up. But it works, because my personality is a little more bubbly and over the top, so we kind of balance each other out.”

“With my husband, I guess because we were together for eight years before we got married, it feels like we are grandparents now, like Grandma and Grandpa. But it’s been great.” –ABC 7


As for Carmelo he keeps it simple with this quip:

“We have our time. We have our down time,” he said. “She works. I work. We make it work. Communication is the key.”– News One
