LaLa Anthony trekked it -- in her Tom Ford heels -- over to The Breakfast Club to dish about her new book The Power Playbook (out today), the new season of "Power," quitting reality tv, and why she and Carmelo Anthony decided not to go to the Fight in Vegas.

 

We've got the interesting reveals inside....

LaLa's Power 105.1 interview with Angela, Charlamagne and DJ Envy aired this morning, and the foursome of friends chopped it up about everything going o in her career.  And what's not going on.

The makeup guru, author and actress revealed she's not doing her reality tv show ("LaLa's Full Court Life") anymore because it's hurting her acting career.

And about that Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Fight party she hosted at her house Saturday night, she said she had it catered but it was still laid back.  Still, having The Wades and The Wests there definitely caused her home to be surrounded by paparazzi all night.

Here are the highlights:

On why she and Carmelo didn't go to the fight in Vegas:

"The truth is, Melo said he wasn't paying that much for those tickets. They gave him a great deal, but still, he was like, I'm not paying that much.  And Melo is not a Vegas person.  I love Vegas.  I can stay there for a long time, but he's not into it.  He wanted to fly in for the fight and as soon as it was over, fly right back.  I was like, we're not going to go all that way and party and just...it's not point.

So he said he'd rather just stay here  Melo would rater work out.  Literally, all day long.  After watching the fight, it was great and I was so happy Floyd won, but I was also happy we didn't come out out pockets for all that money for those tickets.  Of course we could have [hosted a party and made it right back], we got some good offers, but we just chilled out.  It was nice."

On a role she auditioned for but didn't get

"I went up for Barbershop 3.  I really wanted that one because it felt like it could have been a great movie.  I love Malcolm Lee and always wanted to work with him.  I got really close and when I didn't get that one,  you get disappointed.  You have to believe what's for you is for you and what for somebody else....

I was like, doing weaves and stuff.  But I liked the role."

On constantly dieting to look good, despite others thinking she always looks great

"I just want to feel good about myself.  I fell off the bandwagon.  I'm starting a new program today to get back on. I'm a chocolate fanatic.  And I like cheap chocolate.  I like Kit Kat and Nestle Crunch."

On how she met husband Carmelo Anthony

"He did tell me that once [that he grew up watching me].  DJ Clue introduced us.  He was like, "Yo, My man been watching you on tv" and this and that.  I was like, I'm not going to mess around with a basketball player.  I just feel like they come with such a stigma.  I didn't want that."

On showing nipple in an upcoming sex scene on "Power"

"On "Power" this upcoming season (episode 4 to be exact), I have my first sex scene!  Carmelo said he understands it, it's my job, but he doesn't want to watch it.  Yeah [I'll be topless]. And yeah [nipples will be out].

To be on "Power", you have to sign a nudity clause off the bat.  At some point, everybody has to show something.  It was tasteful and respectful so I felt good about it.  I'm acting, I'm taking it serious, it comes with a territory.  What, are you never going to do a sex scene and you're an actress?  That's unreasonable."

On quitting reality tv

"Im not doing reality tv anymore.  But I'm producing now.  I'm working on a show with Dice, I'm working on a show with Po, and I want them to continue to grow and do great things.  But reality tv, it's not for me.  I mean, I loved it and had a great run.  I just decided I didn't want to expose so much of my personal life constantly.  And I found that the reality show was hurting me in acting, which is what I'm really trying to do now. 

They look at you as a reality girl like, 'Oh that's the reality girl'.  And they don't take  you seriously.  And your audition has to be 100 times better than anyone else.  So I kinda had to let that go to really now dive in and be taken seriously."

 

She spoke about her book being about helping people find their own power to succeed, why being a woman is so powerful, and working her way up and making her own money.  Check out the full interview below:
