Which Of These 7 Types Of Amigas Are You?

They’re all different and all equally amazing…

La Chismosa

This friend knows everything that’s going on with everyone and cannot WAIT to tell you about it via text, Facebook, gChat or sky writing. Note: In some friend groups, this might be literally every person.

The Young Abuela

This type of friend was basically born old. She can’t help but want to take care of everyone around her, whether she’s sweet about it or resorts to some tough love. She’s the only one of your friends you can count on to always carry tissues, Band-aids, eye drops, and these viejita-ass candies.

La Reina del Party

This girl can out-dance (and possibly out-drink) everyone around her, loves to shout “woo!” at high volume and doesn’t leave a party without becoming best friends with the DJ. She’s the one you invite when you just want to focus on having the time of your life, even if it means being half-dead behind your sunglasses at brunch the next morning.

The TeleThalia

You know how Thalia often played the young, innocent girl? That’s this friend. She sees the best in everyone and is probably a big fan of those motivational quotes you see on Instagram and Pinterest. She’s the best, even though you want to shake her by the shoulders every time she says chisme “isn’t nice.” Girl, who cares?!

The Badass

The only thing you’re scared of when you’re around this friend is having to possibly bail her out of jail. She’s tough and takes no B.S. from anyone. If you’re close enough, you know that deep down, she’s just as big a softie as anyone. Just don’t mention it or she’ll glare you to death.

The Late Bloomer

This friend grew up believing she was awkward (and, well, was probably right about that). Suddenly,  she blossomed into a total smart, gorgeous, fun person… who is still, let’s face it, una niñita de mami y papi.

La Geeky Girl

This girl knows EVERYTHING there is to know about every fandom she’s part of, can cosplay like a champion and is basically the coolest geek you’ll ever know. You might not totally ~get~ all her interests, but her enthusiasm and joy for the things she loves are pretty fantastic.

So. Which friend are you?

La La Anthony Talks About Raising Her Kids With Vanessa Bryant: ‘That’s My Family’

La La Anthony Talks About Raising Her Kids With Vanessa Bryant: ‘That’s My Family’

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.”

Vanessa Bryant and Ciara Continue to Define #FriendshipGoals Through Their Unwavering Support of One Another on Social Media

Vanessa Bryant and Ciara Continue to Define #FriendshipGoals Through Their Unwavering Support of One Another on Social Media

Vanessa Bryant continues to shows us what true resilience looks like. On Tuesday, the widow of Kobe Bryant took to her Instagram account to post a picture with Ciara and Russel Wilson’s baby, Win Wilson.

In the adorable picture, Bryant affectionately rests her head against the 2-month-old’s head. Win also looks comfortable, his face snuggled against Bryant’s shoulder.

Bryant captioned the post: “Sweet Baby. Win” along with a heart emoji. She tagged her friend Ciara as well as Ciara’s husband, Russel Wilson.

Ciara responded with a lovely note of her own, saying, “The sweetest. We love you Auntie V.” Vanessa Bryant and Ciara have recently let the public into their friendship, sharing candid pictures of them hanging out together, their children in tow.

In August, around Kobe’s birthday, Vanessa posted a picture to her Instagram account of her and her daughters, three-year-old and one-year-old Bianka and Capri. In the photo, all of them are huddled close, smiling smiling with Ciara. Bryant was similarly affectionate in her praise for Ciara then, writing: “It takes a village. Thank you to all my loving family, amazing friends and wonderful fans for your love and support. One day at a time.”

Shortly after, Ciara posted the same photo to her own Instagram account where she wrote a touching tribute to her good friend, whom she calls “Mamba Queen”.

“Seeing you and the girls smile makes my heart smile,” she gushed. “You’re the toughest mama I know. Seeing you put one foot forward each day is admirable. It ain’t easy, but if I know one thing, Mamba Queen’s capable of it all. Love you.”

The recent much-needed facetime with loved ones is probably especially important right now for Bryant, who is embroiled in some unpleasant personal turmoil behind the scenes.

Not only has her mother been making the media rounds, accusing Vanessa of kicking her out of her home, but she recently sued the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for sharing unauthorized photos of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe and Gianna Bryant in January.

The latter case inspired a recently-passed California law that Governor Gavin Newsome just signed into action that “makes it a crime for first responders to take unauthorized photos of deceased people at the scene of an accident or crime.”

We’re glad to see that Vanessa Bryant has a strong support system around her. If anyone needs it, it is her.
