La La Anthony has so much to celebrate these days. The actress, who just wrapped season six of the hit Starz show Power, has just been cast on the revival of 90210. During day 2 of Essence Festival, the actress and host chatted up with People about how she’s staying positive amidst the separation from her husband of nine years, Carmelo Anthony.
“You can look at the glass half-empty or you can look at the glass half-full, you know,” Anthony told the magazine. “When you’re in this world, you don’t get to pick and choose what you go through. I just push through and stay positive and always remind myself that it could be worse, like, I’m living my dream and I’m really happy where I’m at in life right now.”
The actress, who moderated the McDonald’s Black & Positively Golden entrepreneurship panel at Essence Festival, says she’s been comforted by her girl squad, who have supported her every step of the way. “I have my core group, you know Kelly [Rowland] Ciara, Kim [Kardashian] and Serena [Williams], but my really, really core group is my family,” she continued.
In her more private moments, Anthony says staying connected spiritually keeps her grounded. “I definitely pray,” she said, “that’s the most important thing.”
Earlier this month, it was reported that La La was “exploring her options” in regards to possibly ending the marriage after photos leaked of Carmelo on a yacht with another woman (he has since denied cheating.) Her reps confirmed the news to People last week saying, “As La La and Carmelo have been living apart for quite some time, La La is proceeding with legal discussions as the next step in their relationship. They will remain loving and committed parents to their son.”
In the midst of her personal storm, La La is still out here living her best life. During an Essence Festival Party, miss thing let loose on the mic. Many folks thought she was dishing out shade to her estranged hubby when she addressed the crowd. “To all my ladies who don’t give a f**k about a n**ga, make some noise.” Then she added, “I really don’t though.”
Our good sis is definitely having the Hot Girl Summer she deserves, and we’re not mad at it!
