Proud wifey, LaLa Anthony just loves her hubby Carmelo Anthony. And because New York loves Carmelo too, the Post thought it time to sit down with wife and ask her about their Midtown apartment:
What has it been like adjusting to New York?
In the beginning it was overwhelming, but Carmelo and I were both born in New York, so our roots are here. It’s really been amazing to come back and feel so welcomed by all the fans. We also have a home in LA, so we feel like we have a great life by being in both worlds: fast-paced New York and slower-speed LA.
What is the best and worst part of living in New York compared to LA?
In LA, you’re so used to jumping in your car. There’s a valet service wherever you go. Alternatively, driving in New York can be very stressful. But I love how everything and anything you need is always at your fingertips.
What is your entertaining philosophy?
It depends on the mood I’m in. I’m a chicken wings kind of girl, and I love party favors. Sometimes, the fun stuff is getting everyone in a kitchen and cooking together, although to be honest, I’m not really a fan of cooking myself. I’d rather hang a picture.
What players and celeb friends have been over?
We love to entertain. Of course, many of Carmelo’s teammates from the Knicks have been over, and my friends Kelly Rowland and Serena Williams have dropped in.
But hold on, what’s that above the fireplace?
Have you recently purchased any artwork? What is your favorite piece?
This past Christmas, we purchased a huge, modern picture of my husband from the artist Paul Gerben, whose studio is located in SoHo. It was great to be directly in touch with the artist himself, which enabled us to create this fantastic, very large and abstract piece that we love.
It’s not “abstract”; it’s Carmelo Anthony in a tux with Barney purple in the background and stunna shades on. But, we know you was just trying to be fancy boo! Must be nice.
