Carmelo Anthony better be on his best behavior at all times when it comes to being a husband. In a recent profile of gossip site MediaTakeout in GQ magazine, La La Anthony threatened to Lorena Bobbitt Melo’s manhood if she ever caught him cheating.
The choice quote occurred after Mrs. Anthony asked MediaTakeOut’s founder how that Honey Nut Cheerios urban legend came to be. Not surprisingly, he had no idea.
Fred doesn’t know much more than that about where the rumor came from. Which is okay, because it turns out La La has a second, more important question that Fred does know the answer to. She doesn’t really care about Honey Nut Cheerios. The cereal was a pretext. What she really wants to know is: Has Fred heard about anything involving Melo and women who are not named La La Anthony? Tabloid stories have a way of begetting more tabloid stories. Groupies, girls, that kind of thing—just look at Tiger Woods, whose one VIP hostess quickly turned into a dozen after news of his infidelities went public. Once she’s on the front page of the Daily News next to a stranger’s quote about her vagina, La La says, “that’s when people feel like, ‘That’s my chance to start something up or to make something up.’ “
Fred nods sympathetically. On this subject, he says, he can help: “No bullshit came out.”
“Good,” La La says, as somewhere far away from here a chill shoots down the spine of the NBA’s reigning scoring champion. “Because I’ll cut a motherfucker’s dick off, okay? And that’ll be the next story.”
Stay true Melo. Can’t win championships while your hospitalized.
