Lala On Basketball Wives With Pynk Magazine
Since moving to New York with her Knicks superstar husband Carmelo Anthony has seemingly avoided the glare of the spotlight. Whether or not that decision has been a conscious one, Lala says that she doesn't want to be branded a basketball wife--for reality TV purposes or otherwise. Mrs. Anthony wants everyone to remember that she is a career woman--not a trophy.
“I was offered a spot on the show. I turned it down," she told Pynk magazine. "I have absolutely nothing against basketball wives, the show 'Basketball Wives,' or anything like that. But I pride myself in being more than just a basketball wife. I understand that’s something that I am, but that’s not a title that I want to define me. I’d rather be known as a mom, a businesswoman, a producer, an actress, a TV host. I just felt like that didn’t fit who I was and where my career was trying to go.”
