LaLa Goes Vintage Glam For PYNK Magazine, Talks Turning Down "Basketball Wives" & Having First Lady Of New York Title

 

LaLa Anthony is on the cover of PYNK magazine's debut issue.  And the basketball wife is talking about rejecting becoming a "Basketball Wife."  She's also dishing on how she really feels about being called the "First Lady of New York."

 

Pics and excerpts when your read on....

New York Knick Carmelo Anthony's wife LaLa glammed it up vintage style for the cover and pics of the mag.

And she has her second season of her reality show she's gearing up for this fall--"LaLa's Full Court Life."  It's on the same network as those "Basketball Wives"--VH1--so it's only natural to ask how she feels about them.  Excerpts from @Pynk's interview:

On Basketball Wives
“I was offered a spot on the show. I turned it down. I have absolutely nothing against basketball wives, the show Basketball Wives, or anything like that. But I pride myself in being more than just a basketball wife. I understand that’s something that I am, but that’s not a title that I want to define me. I’d rather be known as a mom, a businesswoman, a producer, an actress, a TV host. I just felt like that didn’t fit who I was and where my career was trying to go.”

On Being Referred To As The First Lady Of New York
“I kind of laugh when people say it. It’s an honor to be called [The First Lady Of New York.] For people to even put us in the same category as Jay-Z and Beyonce — that’s just an honor in itself, but I don’t deal well with titles. To me, actions speak more than anything. It’s about being in New York now and being active, as New Yorker’s get active in the community. And getting out there and showing people what we are about outside of our businesses, with philanthropy and different things like that. That’s how you prove who you really are. You can be given a label and a title but what does that mean when there is nothing behind it? So for us, it’s about really embracing the city of New York. We kind of rushed and got here quickly, but now that we are settling in we’re starting to get out there and do some charity work and let people really see what we’re about as individuals, and as a couple.”

Interesting...

The hate on here is AMAZING.

The hate on here is AMAZING. I am all for freedom of speech but why does it always have to be hateful? I have yet to read one post on this site that does not have a hateful comment. Even when the post is about charity work, there is a hateful comment about the person involved. I know we all have our own opinions about things and individuals but wow, this is just too much sometimes. But I guess that what happens on a site like this. People use it as an outlet to spew their hateful natures and say things they would never say in actuality.

Too bad Lala and Evelyn have

Too bad Lala and Evelyn have a lot in common...they both waited a REALLY long time for their man to marry them; only difference, one made it down the aisle and the other didn't. Lala seems to try and put herself on a pedestal so much with this newly wife status. Girl, boom! Up until last year, you were just like Evelyn, Shaunie and Jennifer. No difference at all -- besides a stint on MTV. Other than that, they all fall into the same category. We wouldn't even be talking about her if it wasn't for her man. Um, where is Carson? Or the others?? *crickets* People just need to be real with themselves.

She is nothing like Evelyn.

She is nothing like Evelyn. Evelyn bounces from player to player hoping someone will wife her old ass. LaLa had a somewhat successful career prior to Melo entering the league. She has been w/ him and only him and has his son, yes they had a long engagement but she is a classy woman who seems to put her family before anything. And she went to Howard and was a DJ w/ Luda along time ago. No she is not an A-list celebrity but she has a man and a career. Can you say the same? Being real and being critical and misinformed are two different things.

I wasnt the biggest fan of La

I wasnt the biggest fan of La La at one point but I've growth to like her. Her answers to these questions were admirable and I appreciate the fact that she is so humble. To you "negative"individuals looks arent everything, but I hope you'll learn to see beauty from within. BTW she is BORICUA to the fullest please dont get confused with how she looks, because all BORICUAS arent light skin with long natural hair. Im brown skin with green eyes and long NAPPY black hair and PROUD (and Im FULL PUERTORICAN)! Keep doing you La La and if deserving of the first lady of NY title mama please represent as I know you will!

I think La La is a pretty afro Latina. And she doesn't wear contacts...her eyes are green like a lotta Ricans eyes are green. There are some hateful folks in the world. Dang...it's fine not to like her but why insult her looks?

This looks nothing like her it is completely photoshopped. She is not an attractive woman I would love to see what she looks like without all those buckets of paint on her face and without that weave and contacts.

LaLa is a beautiful person, both inside and out. She's confident in who she is and does not need "labels" for validation. Definitely a FAB chick!

They lightened her skin,

They lightened her skin, narrowed her nose and lips and gave her a better weave. They tried to turn a COLORED PUERTO RICAN INTO A WHITE LATINA BUT IT DIDN'T WORK. SHE STILL LOOKS LIKE A TRANNY, A COLORED PUERTO RICAN.

I love her eyes!! I'm happy she's not doing BW because she is absolutely right...time out for doing things just to do them. She has goals and a path that she is traveling and a show like that would only be a distraction to her destiny. Not everyone is hard up for 15 minutes of fame on a reality show. Good job LaLa...tell the rest of those BW girls...LOL!

Did Shaunie really think Lala

Did Shaunie really think Lala would cheapen herself up to be on that mess of a show? No real basketball wife who has something going for themselves or self-respect, would be caught dead on that show.

she didn't say she was the

she didn't say she was the queen of ny, someone else said those words. she stated she don't even like titles. give the woman a break. i can't believe the hate so many of you carry around.
Anonymous's picture

What?? What are you talking

What?? What are you talking about? no-one said she calls herself the Queen of NY. If u must get mad, be mad at the interviewer who asked the question. READ things more CAREFULLY before accusing people of hating. For my part, I was joking about her being the Queen of NY. I pay taxes there so I can do that. :-) Relax damnnnnnnnnnnn.

I've never been a fan of La-La: my feelings toward her are indifferent. But I must say that her pix are FAB...and her comments are on-point. Kim K could take a page out of her book: less is more in terms of talking and drawing attention to yourself. Sidenote: I live in northern NJ & work in NY--aint nobody calling this chick the First Lady of NYC. Sorry :-)

La La is kool not saying

La La is kool not saying anything about her and her comments are just that her comments, people. I understand that so many "entertaining" black women dont "act" like the off springs from the mother of civilization but hey I can't fixed that;-) "I'm African American and my ex-hubby is Puerto Rican (thats for your posters) therefore my beautiful daughter is what...Black because her parents understand who they are and where our people started from..the Black man and Black woman:-) much luv I must go until later.Peace

There was only 1 continent,

There was only 1 continent, 300 to 400 million yrs ago "prior to the dinosaur" the earliest human, formed and emerged from AFRICA. The 1st known human found outside of Africa came from the northern latitude. As they migrated further from the equator, the color of skin, texture of hair and eye color all changed, need I say more! Therefore if all mankind is created through a woman and we all agree on that (nothing in science can change that) then the Black woman is the Mother of Civilization! Don't get mad at me its the truth and If I get any deeper most of yall will get mad or become so confused it's not worth explaining.... Oh and my degree is in African American Studies which is why I read YBF & a couple other sites (weekly), the views and comments from many give me great writing material so do most of my class mates. I'm no scholar but the truth is the truth....much luv to everyone.
Mi Mi's picture

I've read your comments...and

I've read your comments...and you sound silly. Clearly a degree doesn't prove that you are a smart, well spoken, enlightened, "educated" individual. All it proves is that you somehow came up with the money to pay for tuition and somehow stayed in school long enough to pass (not ace) enough classes to earn a diploma. "Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt"

Amen & Amen! And I don't

Amen & Amen! And I don't believe she's ever been to college. One minute she's a graduate and the next minute she's claiming to use blogs for info to write about for class. I know she's not pursuing a graduate degree...so ummm...yeah...ok. My grandmother used to say the quote you posted & it is so true! All doubt has been removed for you, Mi Mi. ***passes dunce cap***

OH SHUT THE F*CK UP WITH YA

OH SHUT THE F*CK UP WITH YA BITTER A$$, if u have a rebuttal to any of her points or argument re black woman being the mother of civilization, then provide a counter argument. What does attacking her degree have to do with anything...STUPID BLACK B*ITCH
