So Carmelo Anthony and (now) estranged wife La La are in the headlines again. This time, however, no NBA star taunted him with how good she tasted. This time around, he was busted smangin’ a stripper (not in the act though). They are currently separated and I’m sure divorce is on the horizon.
So here’s the kicker – recently in an interview, comedian Chris Rock expressed somewhat of an interest in the soon to be former Mrs. Anthony on the Wendy Williams show.
“If La La is interested in going short next time,…”
“La La is bad, woo”!
“Hey, they’re married; you’re not supposed to mess with other team’s players. But she’s hot though!”
“She looked great the other night”, Chris continued, speaking about a photo of La La at the Met Gala in New York City. “La La will you? La La let’s go to ‘La La Land!”
Carmelo Anthony obviously upset by this turn of events responded (via text to several confidantes):
“Did y’all see this bulls**t? This n**** on TV trying to scoop up my wife.”
In addition to this, he [Carmelo] allegedly called renowned film director Spike Lee and told him to let Rock know to back off or there will be trouble. Really? You’re gonna fight (or possibly worse) Pookie? <– Okay I had to put that there (New Jack City reference). Seriously though, she’s not your possession. And the wife part….well, this is what one of the masses had to say on Facebook:
“He needs to shut the fcuk up because you wasn’t thinking about your wife when you was sticking your yellow a$$ penis all over the place” <– I definitely had a laugh over that one.
Now here’s the school of thought on this: First off, ‘Melo should be upset because he realized that he didn’t know what he had until it was gone. I’m aware they had a reality show at one point, and several women that I know who have watched it told me that he wasn’t nearly as affectionate as she was, opting to do everything else but simply cuddle with his honey. Let’s call a spade a spade. LaLa is a beautiful successful woman. And what man wants his woman to be flirted with by another man? So I can see where he’d be tight.
On the flip side last I checked, Rock and Anthony aren’t boys, teammates (former or current), and they’re not even in the same age group to hang in the same circles with each other (Rock is 50, Anthony 33). And it’s not as though he [Chris] openly said he would love to f**k her [LaLa], he just expressed interest and complimented her. Maybe the ‘La-La land’ was a bit much, but whatever. Bottom line, ‘Melo should’ve thought about the repercussions before deciding to step out on his wife and make a mockery of his family. Having said that, she’s now fair game. And what can he do?
Honestly, as much as I, Cortonio, would love to be forgiven if I committed such an act, I have to realize the relationship likely is a wrap. I hurt her. And if she so decided to leave, what the hell could I be mad for?
In the end, I don’t condone cheating, but damn ‘Melo, you couldn’t have been more discreet?
So is Anthony wrong for being upset? Is Rock overstepping his bounds? Talk to me.
