Lala Anthony has been hitting the mark shy of superwoman with her busy schedule . This month, she is in full promo mode pushing her first book, The Love Playbook: Rules For Love, Sex and Relationship, giving readers insight on how to find and keep love as well as featuring in her upcoming film Think Like A Man 2. With more than 10 years of being in a relationship (the two married in 2010) with Knicks player Carmelo Anthony , Lala has had her share of relationship trial and error.
This week, she visited the Arsenio Hall Show where she shared some interesting feedback on how she had to break her own dating rules and why she doesn’t give her man a free pass (to have sex w/ anyone else):
On how her and Melo met:
A mutual friend of ours, Dj Clue, who I was actually doing a television show with was like ‘I want to introduce you to Carmelo Anthony, this basketball player and as soon as I heard the word ‘basketball player’ I was like absolutely not! I do not want to meet a basketball player because you hear the stereotypes and things people say but we were friends first and I talk about that in the book how when you develop a friendship with someone first it helps you last longer in a relationship.
On their age difference:
It absolutely did, he’s not that much younger than me! You know sometimes you have to break your own rules and you learn from trying different things and it worked for us.
On women allowing their men to have ‘free passes’, an opportunity to have sex outside of their marriage:
I think that is the absolute worst idea of all time. I just think you’re opening the floodgates to a lot of problems. Why would you allow your man to cheat on you and be okay with that? That just destroys the relationship, that’s just my opinion so I’m totally against that.
On women asking how to find a baller:
Always. I get that question a lot. You don’t try to get a baller, just be confident in yourself when you go out there and you’ll attract great energy and you’ll get the right kind of attention. Guys can tell when your desperate and thirsty and sometimes guys use that for negative things.
During the show, she partakes in “Twitter Questions” where she gives advice to random tweeps!
On how older men can spice up the bedroom:
For older men I would say you have to keep it spontaneous. You shouldn’t plan things, be spontaneous do different things. I’m not into ‘okay Wednesday at 5 o clock, this is what were gonna do, this is where were going to do it at.’ Be spontaneous, live a little, spice it up and think outside the box.
On if she applies the spontaneity in her personal life:
Absolutely…I’m very spontaneous.
On how to handle a man who is endowed:
My advice is…you better take that.
