La La Anthony is not one of those basketball wives who’s going to give her man a free pass to cheat just because he’s a rich and successful athlete.

In fact, La is so full of relationship knowledge, she wrote a book about it. The Playbook: Rules For Love Sex And Happiness quickly climbed to the number one spot on the New York Times Best Seller list, and the first lady of the New York Knicks stopped by the Arsenio Hall Show to dish on her book, reveal how she meet Melo, and more.

On how she met her husband Carmelo Anthony:

“A mutual friend of ours, DJ Clue, who I was actually doing a television show with, was like, ‘I want to introduce you to Carmelo Anthony, this basketball player.’ And as soon as I heard the word ‘basketball player’ I was like, ‘Absolutely not! I do not want to meet a basketball player,’ because you hear the stereotypes and things people say. But we were friends first and I talk about that in the book.. how when you develop a friendship with someone first, it helps you last longer in a relationship.”

On what she thinks of women who give their men free passes to cheat:

‘I think that is the absolute worst idea of all time! I just think you’re opening the floodgates to a lot of problems. Why would you allow your man to cheat on you and be okay with that? That just destroys the relationship! That’s my opinion so I’m totally against that.”

On what she tells women who ask her how to get a baller:

“You don’t try to get a baller. Just be confident in yourself when you go out there and you’ll attract great energy and you’ll get the right kind of attention. Guys can tell when you’re desperate and thirsty and sometimes guys use that for negative things.”

La La’s advice for older men wanting to keep it spicy:

“For older men, I would say you have to keep it spontaneous. You shouldn’t plan things, be spontaneous, do different things. I’m not into, ‘Okay Wednesday at 5:00, this is what we’re gonna do, this is where we’re going to do it at.’ Be spontaneous! Live a little! Spice it up and think outside the box.”

La La’s book The Playbook: Rules For Love Sex And Happiness is in stores now.
