“Okay, real talk, and we can talk as far as you want… are you divorcing ‘Melo?”
La La Anthony recently appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” and her interview with Williams covered a lot: the diamonds attached to her teeth, her BET Awards outfit and her nude scene which aired on the STARZ show “Power.” Anthony, the real-life estranged wife of NBA star Carmelo Anthony, has been in the news a lot lately after separating from her husband when it was revealed he may have fathered a child outside of their marriage with an exotic dancer. Speculation about her plans to divorce ‘Melo came to a fever pitch when she was spotted at this year’s MET Gala wearing a ring on every finger *but* that one.
Her name came up again when Chris Rock openly flirted with the idea of possibly dating her if she was single. During a previous appearance on the show, Rock said to Williams: “I don’t know, but if La La’s interested in going short next time.”
Now, we’ve finally heard it from Mrs. Anthony herself. Anthony told Williams that she had no plans of divorcing at this time. And, although she isn’t calling in the lawyers just yet, she did reveal she’s dating someone very special: herself. Check out the video to find out how she really feels about ‘Melo.
La La Anthony is opening up about her close relationship with Vanessa Bryant, whom she calls “family”.
In an interview with ET, the Puerto Rican actress and television personality talked about how her and Bryant are creating “life long bonds” between their children by having them spend quality time together. La La is mother to 13-year-old Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, while Bryant is mother to three daughters (Natalia, Bianka Bella, Capri Kobe).
Anthony has previous documented the two families hanging out together on social media.
She appears to have been spending a lot of time with Vanessa Bryant since Kobe Bryant passed away in January. She even posted an adorable TikTok video of the two of them doing the “Don’t React Challenge” where they listen to old school hits and try not to dance or move to the music. Fans were overjoyed to see Vanessa smiling and laughing again.
La La said that having her son spend time with Vanessa’s kids is “one of the most important parts” of their friendship. “They [the kids] look at themselves as cousins and they do a lot together,” she said. “Kiyan’s the oldest, but all the kids look up to Kiyan.” She went on to explain how Bryant’s kids are always calling Kiyan for advice and support.
La La got deep when she talked about how deeply the two women’s lives are intertwined.
“I’ve been a part of [Vanessa’s children’s] lives from before they were even thought of, so just to continue to be a part of their journey is amazing, to be Auntie La La and to always be there for them no matter what is an amazing thing and responsibility that I don’t take lightly,” she says.
She continued by saying, “That’s my family and that’s what it’s always gonna be. I’m always [going to have] their best interests at heart no matter what.”
This isn’t the first time La La has gotten candid about her relationship with Vanessa. Back in September, La La explained how much of an honor it is to be able to be part of Vanessa’s support system in the difficult months after her husband and her daughter’s deaths.
“You don’t dip out on your friends when it gets really hard,” she told ET. “And she’s going through something that is unimaginable, that I can’t even fathom what that feels like.”
“Just to be a friend and be there to make her laugh when she needs to, cry when she needs to, is a beautiful thing,” she continued. “But that’s what friends do for each other. I’m always going to be there for her and the girls and just want to see her just continue to be strong and amazing.”
We all know that daytime talk show host Wendy Williams has plenty of drama going on in her own life. However, that didn’t stop her from letting it all out on her review of the Billboard Music Awards. Particularly, Williams tried to come for Maluma.
In her Hot Topics segment, Wendy came for both Madonna and Maluma who performed the single “Medellin” at the awards show.
First, she went for Madonna.
Like, why even say something like that? Madonna might not be the youngest artist out there right now but she is doing her thing and elevating Latin music artist to mainstream audiences.
Then she got it all wrong with Maluma.
After saying Madonna “moved like an old lady”, Wendy tried putting Maluma – who she thought was Madonna’s boyfriend – on blast. Williams was saying that he didn’t deliver during his performance with the Medellinsinger. She was even confused because she thought Madonna’s boyfriend was supposed to be hot.
Wait up, Wendy. You did not.
Maluma is a hit-making singer in his own right and we are all luck to have him in our lives. Clearly, you haven’t taken any time to listen to the 25-year-old’s hit songs like “Corazón” and it shows.
Maluma is pure fire.
A few seconds later, Wendy switched gears. She puts a photo of the real-life sex god up on the screen and talks about how gorgeous he is before saying she thought he was Mariah Carey’s boyfriend.
Maluma + Madonna + Mariah? What the actual f*ck?
All of this happens before one of her cameramen has to step in to tell her who this beautiful man really is. It’s Maluma, baby. Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy. The same guy from the Madonna performance.
You’re welcome, Wendy. #smh
For someone who loves to stir the pot and act like a know it all, you really dropped the ball here. Maluma is someone we all know and love. If you don’t know him, you better learn. He is going to be around for a long time.
Perez Hilton is not having it.
Honestly, neither are we. She needs to make sure she and her team do some research before they try dragging people on air. Ignorance isn’t a cute look on you. This blatant disregard of one of reggaeton’s greatest icons is an absolute slap in the face.
If this wasn’t enough, for his first Met Gala outing, Maluma got no love on the pink carpet.
It was his first time there and he was absolutely working a stunning look. People rightfully pointed out that Maluma came to slay. The theme for the event was “Camp” and Maluma definitely slayed the challenge, showing up in a sparkly patterned Moschino suit.
Yet the getup didn’t seem to capture too many photographers attention.
As this actual footage of Maluma’s arrival clearly shows. Which left people, including us, completely puzzled. Like, how can you not pay attention to the Colombian singer that has captivated the hearts of millions? Unacceptable.
We the people are very pissed and heartbroken.
He came to slay and slay he did. It is time for everyone to take a moment and recognize Maluma’s Met Gala look for what it is, gold.
It was a traumatic experience that fans are being forced to relive over and over because of social media.
Who else is crying over it? The disrespect just seeps through the screen. Maluma deserves better. He is someone that needs to be respected and admired for his beauty and fashion choices.
ICYMI, here is the video of the beautiful and regal Maluma being ignored at the Met Gala.
This is a tragedy. Every photographer should be fired for not following through. He is a prince and deserves all of the spotlight we can give him.
A lot of people feel Maluma got cheated of his spotlight simply because gringos don’t know one of Latin America’s biggest stars.
Like there were literally dozens of men that completely failed the challenge. They didn’t channel the event’s theme of “Camp” in any way and instead showed up in basic black. But their photos are all over the place.
He’s got style, he’s got beauty, and he’s got talent. What more does society want from him?
