The wife of New York Knicks' star Carmelo Anthony, La La Anthony, has revealed in her book that Kevin Garnett never said she tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.
Also known as La La Vazquez, the reality TV star opened up in her new book called "The Love Playbook' on the off the court confrontations that followed Garnett's out of turn comments to Carmelo.
Anthony’s wife had never completely denied the incident that occurred in a NBA Madison Square Garden game last January.
“I wasn’t ever going to bring up the Honey Nut Cheerios incident again. But since I’m writing this book, I might as well set the record straight for good,’’ La La wrote.
“Kevin Garnett in fact had never said that I tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios. I tried to figure out how this big lie was turned into a media firestorm. I still can’t answer that one…Melo and Kevin are cool today. And now it’s nothing but a faint memory.’’
Garnett’s trash-talking certainly did some damage.
“I did notice during the game Melo and Kevin were jawing a lot at each other,’’ she writes. “But that’s basketball, the heat of the game. I really didn’t think anything of it. But when Melo went to have words with him, I knew it had to be more than an in-game beef," she added.
