Carmelo Anthony’s wife La La was a VJ on MTV’s show Total Request Live back in the day. She met Carmelo around the same time she was planning on leaving MTV to form her own company. She then produced the documentary “Tyson,” so that makes her successful right there. Who didn’t dig that flick? She’s since starred in a few movies, TV shows and plays that no one has heard of. She also hosted several programs. This lady gets real work as an actress, and you’ve got to respect that. It’s not easy to get regular paying gigs as an actress.
LaLa Anthony starred in the new Spike Lee movie “Chi-Raq”. She acted in the show Power. Wikipedia most certainly wants you to know that 50 Cent produced this show. Carmelo Anthony’s wife La La Anthony is a classy actress. I don’t remember seeing her on Total Request Live, but that show was a great launchpad for her to get her career moving.
Carmelo and La La Tie the Knot
The celebrity couple finally tied the knot in a lavish, star studded wedding event in New York City on July 10, 2010. Attendees included Spike Lee, Justin Timberlake, Kim Kardashian, Ludacris, Amar’e Stoudemire, and Chris Paul. Rumors had it that Chris Paul made a speech declaring that he, Carmelo and Amar’e would start their own big 3 in New York in 2011). Less than 48 hours after “The Decision” LeBron James and wife Savannah Brinson entered the event to a chorus of boos from Knicks fans waiting outside.
La La gets Ejected
During the second round of the 2009 playoffs against the Denver Nuggets, La La got ejected from the stands. The ensuing video became an internet sensation. The video shows a clearly La La escorted from the building. It is very rare for a family to be ejected from the crowed. It’s even more rare when the player’s family is a celebrity in her own right. Vazquez claimed that she suffered latent racism, and a barrage of insults. She became incensed by the Dallas crowd that culminated in a physical altercation between her and a fan. A season ticket holder in the stands issued a statement that totally refuted La La’s version of the events, including saying that her son wasn’t even at the game.
One of my best friends had a girlfriend that attended Syracuse when ‘Melo was there. She told him that he slept “with like a hundred girls” during his tenure there. I wonder where she got figure from? Maybe she was one of those girls? I’m not saying I don’t believe it, but I am saying you’ve got to watch your sources when you start talking about that kinda’ stuff. Carmelo Anthony’s wife La La Anthony certainly wouldn’t want to hear something like that, right? The last thing you want to hear is how popular a guy he was with the ladies while he wore orange.
