Boricua alert! La La Anthony had a lovely Thanksgiving Day that included a lot of good food, excellent drinks, family and friends, and some salsa dancing.
The Power actress took to social media, and she posted a brief clip where she showed off some very fancy and impressive dance moves as a heated salsa beat played behind.
While Carmelo’s estranged wife was captivating, her father is the one who stole the show by revealing to the world that he still got it.
The mother of one captioned it: “When you gotta throw ur shades on to dance salsa with ur dad.”
Fans loved the father/daughter moment and quickly let her know how much the cute video moved them.
One person said: “Too cute…pops was getting it lol.”
Another brought up La La’s Puerto Rican heritage by writing: “Dance with ur dad….lol he could dance, she doesn’t dance like a Puerto Rican, u know Puerto Rican is well known as the best salsa dancer.”
La La, who describes herself as an Afro-Puerto Rican, recently penned an emotional essay about her background where she said: “A lot of people don’t realize that I’m Latina, which is fine. I don’t expect people to know my cultural background just by glancing at me. I do, however, expect that when I tell people my family is from Puerto Rico. It usually goes something like this: a person having a conversation with me discovers one way or another that I’m Puerto Rican and fluent in Spanish. That person then expresses their shock over these realizations for any number of reasons—common responses are, “You don’t look Latina” and “I thought you were black!” I never said I wasn’t black. And since when does being black and being Latina have to be mutually exclusive?”
She added: “For me, not looking like some people’s idea of a typical Latina has been challenging and often painful. I constantly find myself trying to justify who I am, and why should I? I’m proud of my heritage and my family. Both of my parents are from Puerto Rico. They raised two kids in Brooklyn and later in New Jersey, where we ate Arroz con gandules and pasteles and listened to salsa music. I feel just as at home in Puerto Rico, where I still have tons of family, including aunts, uncles, and cousins. Puerto Rico is in my blood. And that has nothing to do with the color of my skin.”
La La and her dad have a great relationship, they recently got a full mani-pedi, and the TV personality told the ladies at the salon that he was single and ready to date.
