LaLa Anthony: I'm NOT All Wrapped Up In Carmelo's Life
LaLa Anthony covers the latest issue and inside pages of "Today’s Black Woman Style Report Magazine" where she does a little girl talk inside about her marriage with NBA Superstar Carmelo Anthony, her stint on "Love, Loss, & What I Wore," and her style. See the highlights inside....
A lot of people want to have it all, but, according to LaLa, aren't willing to put in the time and effort it takes to get such desires. In the December 2011 issue of Today’s Black Woman Style Report Mrs. Anthony dishes on what she wants (and still desires) out of life and how exactly she went after it. Here are some of the highlights:
On her overall approach to success:
“You have to set a goal and really work towards it. A lot of people say, ‘I
want to do this, I want to do that,’ but what are you doing to get to that
goal? If you want to act, are you in acting classes? It takes that kind of
commitment to get better at a craft, and people see the final result; but
they don’t know the work it takes to do these kinds of things.”
On her acting career:
“I just wrapped Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, which is based on Steve
Harvey’s book. I’m really excited about that one. It’s really funny but has
a great message. There's an incredible cast; you have Taraji Henson,
Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good, Michael Ealy, Kevin Hart…I mean the list goes
on and on. To be a part of a cast like that is awesome.”
On having a successful AND balanced marriage:
“You need to have your own thing going on,
so you can live in your world as well as in the world of your relationship.”
