LaLa Anthony addressed rumors about her hubby, Carmelo Anthony, having a fling with his assistant.
“That girl doesn’t even believe in sex before marriage,” she said, denying that she was ever worried about the two having a romantic relationship.
“I didn’t have any doubts with her,” she said. However, LaLa admitted that it doesn’t help when the constant rumors hit from every direction.
“When everybody was bringing it up, it just brought more attention to it, but I’m not an insecure person,” she told the DJs at New York’s Power 105.1.
LaLa isn’t a stranger to celebrity gossip. Last year, there were reports that Carmelo had a secret child. More recently, rumors spread that LaLa may have approved of Carmelo having a mistress.
“Not in my marriage. It ain’t no hall pass. There’s no open relationship. There’s none of that going on in my marriage,” said LaLa, who is taking stripper lessons and tries to keep things spicy to make sure her man stays interested.
In a preview for the current season of “LaLa’s Full Court Live,” LaLa complained that she hardly had any time to have sex with her husband, but she’s not thinking about slowing down her fast-paced life.
Although, LaLa and Carmelo spend a lot of time apart, the mom, actress and cosmetics entrepreneur thinks having her own thing only helps the situation.
“I feel like a man just would not have the same respect for you if you don’t do anything. There’s a difference when you have your own schedule and our own thing going on and not when he left you were in the same spot when he came back,” said LaLa, who wouldn’t be satisfied as a stay-at-home wife.
“That wouldn’t make me happy,” she said.
What does put a smile on her face is her budding acting career. In addition to a role in the upcoming, much-talked-about film, Think Like a Man, LaLa is guest starring on season 2 of VH1’s “Single Ladies.”
“I did two episodes of ‘Single Ladies’ in Atlanta. It was awesome. I played Omar’s sister. Omar works in the store. I had to kiss somebody. I had to kiss Omar Gooding, Cuba Gooding’s brother, like 20 times,” she said. “It was good except he smokes cigars, but it was fine.”
