It’s shaping up to be a good summer for Lala.
Basking in the rewards of summer sequel Think Like a Man Too, Lala Anthony flaunts her good stuff for Latina Magazine. Giving the title “working mom” a good reputation, Carmelo’s wifey opens up about her family, endeavors, and best seller, The Love Playbook.
“Almost every day I get handfuls of people coming up to me and telling me, ‘Your book changed my life. You gave me confidence to leave an abusive relationship and believe in myself.’ To me that’s the true success, not necessarily being number one.”
And with a 10 years and counting relationship, its obvious she’s doing something right. The reality star may be jet setting around the country as she continues to manifest her dreams but her heart will always be with her family. “My husband, my son and I have the best time when it’s just the three of us. It’s nice to all be together, put a movie on, lie in the bed and laugh. That’s my idea of a perfect, fun time.”
Rocking a silver sequins and white top, the budding mogul reveals she may be turning her trio into a quartet.
“I do start feeling bad because [my son, Kiyan, 7, will] ask about a baby [sibling] and I feel a little selfish. If I did have another child, the reason would be that I wouldn’t want my son to be alone in the world as an only child. But we’ll see.”
With all she does—taking care of her family, starring in block buster hits, and helping women find romance—you’d think her dreams would’ve been fulfilled. However she’s been dabbling in fashion with her lucrative business 5th and Mercer. A fashion line for women who are curvy and busty, something Mrs. Anthony can understand.
I know what works on Latinas, black women and curvy women. I just won a little disagreement to increase the sizes with the website ShopBop. They were only going from zero to eight and I’m like, ‘No, we come in all sizes, we have to increase the sizes.’ So now they go from zero to fourteen and I wish they would go even higher.”
