SPOTTED: LaLa & Tichina Arnold+LaLa, Carmelo & Baby Kiyan's Family Fun

YBFchick Tichina Arnold was spotted leaving Mel's Drive-In during a lunch break in Hollywood yesterday looking laid back and fab: How can you not love Beady Bead Tichina?  Just jokes, just jokes... LaLa Vasquez was spotted hitting the streets of Hollywood as well with her brand new Louis bag: Not feeling that bag at all.  The Louis Vuitton collections these days are just not poppin'.  Did the posers kill LV?  Hmmm..... Her boots are cute though. And speaking of LaLa, Essence is featuring her, her eternal fiance, NBA baller Carmelo Anthony, and their 21 month old son Kiyan on the site: Too cute.  I don't think I've ever seen Melo smile that hard. More family pics when you read the rest... Inside Kiyan's Seasame Street room. And inside their home.  Essence has lots more pics here. Pure cuteness.

Am I the only old fashioned

Am I the only old fashioned person who thinks that Essence and like magazines for the black community should not be promoting "baby daddyism"? I am not one to judge but why, when the problems that our children are having due to lack of storng black fathers in the picture are so rampant, do news publications like Essence (Kim Porter on the cover did it for me)glorify this state of not being married? Especially by making it seem like it is all good if the "baby daddy" is a celebrity? It is the ultimate disrespect no matter what spin you put on it. Ask any woman and she will tell you she would prefer to be official, especially if children are involved. Just my thoughts.

[quote comment="333360"]It

[quote comment="333360"]It seems as though everytime I see something about Carmelo and LaLa, there are so many haters asking "when is he going to marry her?" or other questions or comments of that nature. My thing is what does it matter to any of you? That's their life and they are happy as we all can see from the pics. WTF is a piece of paper going to do. If you ask me there are so many people who rush to get married, just to get divorced. Let them live their lives and stop worrying about WHEN HE IS GONNA MARRY HER. How do you know it's not her putting off the wedding until she see's fit. That's her man (wit his fine ass)and they are happy. I think they have a gorgeous family.[/quote] RIGHT ON!!!

[quote comment="331359"]Nobody complains about Brad and Angie not being married w/all those kids they have. The Anthony's are a beautiful family and little man is adorable and looks healthy and happy. It's not like Carmello is out there making babies all over the place like Puff. They seem to be committed. ____________________________________________________________ Tichina's boots are nice.[/quote] OMG....you make a GREAT point!! Just b/c they are black ppl are soo quick to judge "Why are they NOT married yet" b/c they have a baby I mean...maybe he is waiting to make sure they dont get a divorce. They shouldnt just jump into something just b/c they had a chid. Hell...they could end up getting a divorce the next year. Even tho true enough they probably should have waited to have a baby but hell...EVERYBODY makes a mistake but marriage dosnt make up for that mistake. Believe me Ima product of that. My parents get along better now than they did when they were married! And oh yea... I like the LV bag. But again...this is just my opinion. :|

Too all of the people

Too all of the people commenting on Kiyan's lack of hairline, you obviously don't have a child, and if you do it isn't a boy. Some boys hairlines are not completely grown in when they are younger. I see nothing wrong with his hairline, he could just have a large forehead. Immaturity in some shallow folks. Kiyan is a cutie pie. This whole "get married" push is also being beat into the ground. There are ALOT of couples who are/have been together longer than many marriages and are just happy being in the relationship they are in. People really to stop letting a piece of paper or becoming Mrs. Blah define them as a woman.

why does Essence waste their tim eon people who aint married and shacking up. They did the same thing with Puff and Kim and look at them know! That is his house not hers, they aint married. If you like it, then put a ring on it! For marriage, engagement rings dont mean jack!

That is one gorgeous ass

That is one gorgeous ass family. La La hit the jackpot. Carmelo ain't marrying her anytime soon though. What is he 24? Please and a ball player, yeah right. I'm sure she is fine with that because even if they don't get married and break up she is holding her paycheck for the next 17 years in her arms.

Beautiful pics. I wonder why

Beautiful pics. I wonder why haven't these two gotten Married yet? I totally agree with everybody trying to figure that out. There's nothing wrong with asking.. Almost 70% of our black children are born out of wedlock.. Come on people! We gotta BE the STANDARD not fall below it!

Her dumb butt clearly doesn't realize that Puerto Rico brought slaves from Africa too and that shes clearly one of the descendents just like the rest of us.[/quote] Yes I remember that! when ppl say things like like...( I'm not black I'm creole or I'm not black I'm Puerto Rican) then you know that they want no association with being black because they are ashamed with their identity, they hate themselves, and they are saying "I'm not black. I'm not like THEM." So incredibly insulting. That's alright though, I odnt have to get mad cuz the universe and almighty always corrects what's wrong[/quote] I remember that ish. Everyone was talking about that. We were all like...........is she serious??? That chic is black. Yes she is Puerto Rican but that is not a race. Her race is Black and she needs to further her education. I'm mixed but I go as black. When folks see me they can tell that I have something in me but they know that I'm black.
