Newly single mom LaLa Anthony and Empire star Jussie Smollet attended AT&T & Tribeca’s launch of Untold Stories: An Inclusive Film Program at Thalassa on Tuesday, April 18, in New York City. As you know, LaLa is in the news lately because she moved out on her husband, NBA star Carmelo Anthony, who allegedly sired a baby with a stripper. Carmelo is under a lot of pressure these days, since the NY Knicks head coach Phil Jackson practically told him to seek another place of employment. Hopefully ‘Melo will sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

  • Libra80sBaby

    LaLa and Jussie would make a cute couple, if he liked women.

  • Vegas1989

    Lala has been crying all night….Let all out…

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Looking at some of these pictures makes me want to sleep more, exexcise more and stay away from sugar and alcohol.

  • NegraGata

    But would YOUR life be better/happier!!! Everything that glitters is not gold…(no shade – just a legitimate thought)

  • RicanLBC

    Naturi didn’t age well she was bad in Notorious LMAO

  • Lolalao

    He really does look like him…?

  • Evillene

    Indeed. Looks fade and your body will age no matter what you do. Get your party on and have a few drinks while you can.

  • tintin

    Oh Gosh Lala looks like she been crying. Jussie is very cute in these pic’s

  • KIm

    I was saying the same about lala

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    This is Ernestine Shepherd . She’s 80. I’m going to get my ass in gear. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a247340e60bc98c3a2e498e580491f5472f2ba15395d3c547b1c6a5b627c7aed.jpg

  • IamAllnatural

    He looks handsome here & not so gay!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    ?????Teeth real pretty … hairline singed I guess.

  • PrettyBrown28

    Which has me wondering if this is about boosting her career.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I heard La La was sleeping with Tommy. Not sure if that is true, but it would be interesting if it was.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    …or she’s pregnant.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I read somewhere that she was a social worker. So I was trying to figure out where “dancer” came from and if “dancer” was the same as stripper.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Don’t act like you ain’t wanna give him some carmax, lip balm, vaseline, crisco, or something

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Oh wow didn’t know all of this. What baby from a few years ago.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Nah, the chick is like 7 months pregnant at the moment.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Folks still hitting strippers raw huh

    Unfortunately it didn’t stop with Amber Rose and Chyna

  • MsPam

    Don’t like LaLa but I feel sorry for her! Why is Naturi looking like Kandi?!

  • guest

    Lala eyes tells it all. HURT & SADNESS….SMDH

  • Ms. Jackson

    Lala has those eyes that tells all of her emotions. I have friends and cousins who have light eyes. Strangely enough, they seem to tell when something may be going on. I pray that she’s OK cause this was a long relationship.

  • MistaO

    Atl sux munky nuts…worst place I’ve ever lived!

  • Tammie Reed

    Ive been around Anthony Mackie a few times, thats a VERY odd man right there, very odd! Jussie I hear is somewhat of a diva lol.

  • Notatall

    Lol

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I don’t think so ? it ain’t enuf

  • Mrs. B. Y.

    Are we looking in the same eyes? lol She seems fine to me.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil
  • Queen B

    Lol omg why u say that i love Atlanta!!!

  • Queen B

    Who is Naturi bd?! ?

  • Coy little wink

    Well hello Malik…he looks to be packing something substantial ?

  • BicoastBlackGirlGeek

    do tell….?

  • hottlanta

    Please don’t try to over analyze her face. Let her enjoy herself.

  • what?why

    LaLa is a long time friend of Kim K and birds of a feather flock together. Carmelo is no angel and definitely arrogant. Hopefully these two egotistical people will put their son first but not off to a good start.

  • brooklyn23

    I’m pretty sure my vision is 20/20 and I don’t see it

  • BOSS

    Please share the info when you find out!

  • brooklyn23

    Hahaha

  • brooklyn23

    Don’t forget about your gluten, beans, dairy, rice

  • brooklyn23

    I gotta Google she looks good

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    He’s black and employed. Not my cup of tea in the looks department but he’s her man not mine.

  • pure_rachet

    Who watched Wendy Williams today? Was her ass drunk or on crack?? She was funny as hell. Oops off topic.

  • Lisa daniels

    If you gonna tell, tell it all. ?

  • Lisa daniels

    Jessie been a diva since him and his siblings had that show on fox but Jurnee was the only one who was marketable and consistently worked

  • Lisa daniels

    That lady 80? Damn.She looms late 40s earlier 50s

  • Enoughsaid2020

    LaLa is beautiful, so she will have no problem, finding someone better. Keep it moving LaLa.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    I’m glad you noticed it, because I did as well. Looks like, she has been crying, and upset. She is going through a challenging time.

  • DeeFromLA

    Damn can’t have shit. I love sugar, alcohol, rice and gluten

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Could be allergies, an eyelash in her eye, unpacking late at night. All kinds of things. My face shows some emotions though ” like ask me any questions about anything and I will gauge your eyes out” it might show little emotions like that. Or sometimes when I have not prayed enough I might give you the “I think you are the stupidest bitch ever and everything wrong is your damn fault today look” but mostly I keep my emotions off my face. She just appears to be business casual and keeping up appearances nicely !

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Tommy who?!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Jada Pinketts mom was a partier I heard and she looks great!!!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    He always looks like he got dressed in the elevator in the way up to an event Irvin the back of a cab . Crusty lip never let chapstick be his friend !

  • Lot O

    Sandra with the shade ?

  • doubledee

    Lala looks like she was crying ?. Melonmeeds his ass kicked and Naturi is carrying that baby in her boobs.

  • 88

    Her old ass need to put on some clothes.

  • Jeanine McNeal

    No girl… she was able to slip in the comment about a stripper having a married man’s baby without naming names. Loved it ??

  • Ni Ni

    Odd??? What kinda odd….gay? crazy? becky lover?

  • Ni Ni

    Lmao

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Feel kinda sorry for lala. Why can’t men be faithful? It is hard even when the women are pretty like Lala and Beyonce.

  • LabellaMior

    You can see the hurt in Lala’s eyes. I feel bad for her..OAN…to much highlighter under Naturi’s eyes…

  • Jussjess25

    Agreed lala looks sad ?

  • Jussjess25

    Yes he is ! A diva I met Yoba some years ago, and he acted as if he was Gods gift ?

  • kekeb

    Lala looks like she’s been crying. Awh. So sad. She and Jessie look like siblings

  • TaylorFinallyMadeIt

    Well they are showing on the new show that Aaron Hernandez just committed suicide in prison

  • TaylorFinallyMadeIt
  • Yoni7

    Just read that.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Me too. 4 lives wasted.

  • Pamela

    Perhaps then this is not a good time for her to be on red carpets. Stay home surround yourself with loved ones and mourn in private.

  • Yoni7

    4?

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    His, Odin, and the two he was acquitted of but more than likely did.

  • 2brefrank

    Aww Lala looks like she’s been crying for days. Maybe she’s just tired…but the eyes don’t lie.I really hurt for her. All the time she invested in that relationship..ugh..hurts my heart.

    Naturi… Looks older in some of the pics. I want someone to do her makeup right because she’s a naturally beautiful girl.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I agree. IN her eyes she looks tired.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    YES!I follow her on Facebook.

  • T Kenny

    still cant believe they killed malik yoba off empire like that. i at least thought he would come back to andre in a dream but nope. not another word about him. andre doesnt even dream about ronda anymore. i guess to hell with the both of them. also why is lucious sick again? they may need some fresh writers

  • T Kenny

    i heard they had an open relationship and lala was messing with maino..? what kind of two steps backwards shat is that? and why not just get divorced. it all starts with that 3sum shit. nothing but a wacky trip downhill from there

  • ShWa

    Lala looks like she’s hurting, u can see it in her eyes, I feel really bad for her, I thought Carmelo was a stand up guy, and that they were a great couple, it seems no matter how beautiful u are they will still dog u…..

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ya’ll got Malik Yoba up there looking like an elder statesman.

  • suganspice68

    She is a beauty!

  • Yoni7

    Gotcha.

  • suganspice68

    Scrolls back up to see the pic and busts out laughing!”Yeah,he does look like fire Marshall Bill!”

  • Mel

    It’s safe to say Melo may never win a ring nobody can save the Knicks they need to give it up. Aunty don’t think we forget about that tea u was supposed to drop on Lala but decided not to lol we still wanna know. I can’t wait for power to come back lawd. Malik’s role on Designated Survivor is something serious I love the show.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yeah I read something a couple of years ago where Mackie said that white folks are tired of hearing about racism.

    I was like so you’re the black lawn jockey speaking for white folks, now?

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Are we talking about the Tribeca Film Festival??
    I wonder if Lala will really leave him or will do the back and forth like Tiny…..
    This is a sad week news report in sports. So much drama within a few days

  • sunni_daze

    LaLa’s eyes look sad, even though she’s smiling.

  • LabellaMior

    So glad Malik Yoba lips not dry n ashy..cause lawd on NY Undercover he never had any on. Like he ate powder donuts all through the series.

  • Browneyes

    her allergies are acting up

  • OrchidJones-Got Dat Job

    Hey Roses, Aaron Hernandez committed suicide…
    waiting for Sandra Rose to report.
    Miss you guys/Gals…finally got a job so I have no time to lallygag on this here blog! lol!

  • Tynamight

    LaLa looks like she’s been crying.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    CONGRATS

  • AQUEEN

    Yea it’s heartbreaking

  • OrchidJones-Got Dat Job

    thank you!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    LaLa needs to be in house for the rest of the week. Nobody else sees this as weird? They just announced their split then she is just waltzing around like they announced an engagement. It seems like LaLa always puts on a show for the paps and maybe Melo got sick of that…

  • We Can Do This

    He was an alfa male, he wasn’t going to spend the rest of his life in prison.

  • OrchidJones-Got Dat Job

    …such a sucka way to go out instead of facing the music…

  • Birdman24

    You just heard it, she has been dealing with it trust me. Why should she sit in the house? She needs to get out and keep her mind off the nonsense that she has to endure, as long as her child is taking care of she is fine.

  • Birdman24

    Haha!!! A Alpha male is the total opposite has no problem with a sentence, because in some shape, form, or fashion he is going to get out…. I hope you are female

  • Birdman24

    Exactly and Alpha Males are not suckas

  • We Can Do This

    Doing life in jail where there are no women? Not for me. But I would never off myself.

  • doubledee

    Interesting Fact: Melo had a party in my city when LaLa was pregnant with their son. He tried to talk to me and sent his body guard to come get me. I was with my husband (happy and loyal wife and of course turned him down.) but they fact is I never looked at him the same after that. Of course, they weren’t married at the time, but it still speaks to his character as a man/father etc.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    In this photo, Naturi poses with actor Anthony Mackie who, ironically, starred in the 2004 movie, “She Hate Me,” directed by Spike Lee, about a virile hunk who makes extra cash on the side by knocking up a bunch of lesbians.

    What does that information have to do with her being pregnant? I could have sworn they said she been with the father for a minute and they chose to remain low key with their relationship.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Yes she does!!!

  • Tee Tee

    LaLa’s age is beginning to show. Naturi looks so happy.

  • Birdman24

    Right and why does SR always try to pull trash out the garbage can like really??? She also tried to make it seem like Lala and Smollett was doing something.. YOU’RE PATHETIC

  • Ms. Jackson

    I had to delete everything I’d said, so I don’t get blocked . I don’t have time for the back and forth. I’m just saying my opinion. Skip to the loo, and don’t respond.. Just keep skipping.

  • OrchidJones-Got Dat Job

    Early out because with all he did, he was bound to life or death…either way, he was gonna go. Some people know they mess up so they rather do harm to themselves instead of unexpected or by the hands of another. Esp after getting caught.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Tommy from Power. The white dude. Lol.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Ok so keeping her mind off of “it” is 20 to 30 paps in her face with flashing lights and yelling at her about a possible break baby while she is strolling down the street everywhere????? Chile please….

  • 2brefrank

    Awwww I hope that’s all, i really do!

  • Birdman24

    Dumb ass she doesnt stroll down no damn street… And she is use to paps as you call them. Sitting in the house sobbing is what pathetic people like yourself does I am sure the INTELLIGENT people that she trust would advise her if she needed to stay in the house USE YOUR BRAIN PEOPLE FOR MORE THEN A HAT RACK…

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Oh you so mad….lol Name calling and all. Chile please unless you on LaLa’s team please dont cape for anyone who is not writing you a check. You know none of her business all you know is from observation just like me. Dont be mad because you got read…be mad because you want to be me in real life…

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Lord I fell for it !!!!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    He sure does!!!

  • Birdman24

    PATHETIC

  • Birdman24

    AND BLOCKED

  • Quitedeliteful

    Everybody looks good…I’m glad to see Lala is not sitting at home wallowing in self pity…

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yeah but I’m wondering if thinking about a life without his daughter and being around nothing but men for an eternity pushed him over the edge… He seemed calm and alpha-male in court but I’m guessing that when those steel doors slam shut in that concrete cell even an alpha-male can get weak in the knees…

  • We Can Do This

    True. If necessary I’m not putting my faith in an all white jury or judge to hand me a life sentence without parole, but I’m not going to off myself.

    Dude was touched with the psychopath trait and this is how it ends for most of them.

  • We Can Do This

    I agree.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!! I remember!!! Ima blame it on the lousy makeup artist because no self respecting Black Person would go around with dry, ashy lips on purpose…

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whuut? Gonna have to watch this episode…

  • Benita Renee’

    I love Ernestine Shepard!!

  • Michelle

    LaLa and Carmello been disconnected since season 1 of her reality show like 5 years ago. He was messing around then and been messing around since. It was obvious. She knew. It’s just breaking the rules I guess if you get a girl pregnant cause the world knows and you made another family. So that’s the only reason for separation. Carmello moved out last year, another blogger says he moved in the condo across the street from her and has been there about 7 months. This is not new to La she already knew, we just finding out

  • Michelle

    She already knew since it happen though. They’ve been separated since last year

  • therealkym

    LaLa is working…her colleagues are attending this luncheon. And this luncheon is a big deal, small intimate and INVITE ONLY. Just because you are going through something, work/networking does NOT STOP. I’m proud of her. A grown woman, taking care of her business and advancing in her career. Keep it up LaLa…the sky is the limit for you! I see an upgrade in her future.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    It was rumored that she was leaving a few years ago because of a baby. I’m trying to figure out if this is baby #2

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Chile these folks and their how facts lol

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Oh wow. Hmmmmm

  • TheWildChild

    Wait ??…..”Naturi poses with actor Anthony Mackie who, ironically, starred in the 2004 movie, “She Hate Me,” directed by Spike Lee, about a virile hunk who makes extra cash on the side by knocking up a bunch of lesbians.”………?Oh the shade..???

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. Seriously. I really read that somewhere. And they were talking about how he was recently married. I was trying to see if he was married to a black woman.

  • IamAllnatural

    Lala needs to keep doing what she’s been doing, going out & enjoying herself. Life goes on after any relationship. Just focus on the negatives about Carmelo, & she’ll be so happy it’s over.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I put myself in the Kona…

  • Birdman24

    Then they are not an Alpha Male an Alpha Male totally believes in where there is a will there is a way! And sorry Good Morning!!!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Hard to state when you have papo’s flashing cameras at every turn. Her brand was built on family and it will be interesting to see how she makes it on the other side. I dont know if you have been in a relationship but even after breakups you focus on both sides (negative and positive). This wasn’t a ten month high school fling chile it was an over ten year relationship…

  • Decked Out

    Well Ms. Lala ain’t hangin’ out with her gurl……KKW? Their marriage has been on the ROCKS for years. Who thought they were going to last? Now that she has that “Build-A-Body let’s see who she will be dating NOW.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    LaLa is still a friend of the blog.

  • YellowSauce

    might be the tears … or lack of sleep … i’m pretty sure she has been on social media “looking” at what people are saying and not sleeping and possibly crying

  • Gotitbutsmh

    LaLa needs to keep living her life. No one gives AF about Melo’s dirty doggin ways. If he was sick file for divorce instead of impregnating someone. Bobblehead Logic.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty
