La La Anthony: Actress Talks “Power,” “90210” Revival & Being Black & Positively Golden At Essence Festival
Actress and TV personality La La Anthony was in attendance at the Essence Festival to moderate the McDonald’s Black & Positively Golden entrepreneurship panel.
During a stop by Essence Festival’s Entertainment All Access room, she spoke about wrapping season six of the hit Starz show “Power,” and being part of the reboot of the popular series “90210.”
Anthony also spoke about her clothing line and approach to life, but those in attendance were specifically told not ask her any questions about her marriage with husband of nine years, former NBA player Carmelo Anthony. Leading into the Essence Festival, there were reports that pair had separated yet again.
But when asked about how she deals with adversity in life, Anthony replied: “You can look at the glass half-empty or you can look at the glass half-full, you know. 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.”
