Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez are still engaged. Phew.
Going on five-plus years now, he's learned a few things about engagements, such as let the bride handle most details of their wedding – except for a few.
"I just care about the food and the music, that's it," the NBA star told People, celebrating his 26th birthday with his fiancée at Philippe in W. Hollywood.
While he has yet to choose specific songs, the Denver Nuggets forward wants "some great music for dancing," and is also requesting red velvet cake.
The red is part of a grander idea: "We don't really have a theme yet," says former MTV veejay LaLa Vazquez, "but Melo is just certain that he wants red."
It seems to work well with the man ...
LaLa Vazquez and Carmelo Anthony are getting married next month.
Of course, having a wedding planner who "does everything and makes it so easy" takes the heat off LaLa. "[It's] like no pressure whatsoever," she said.
The actress has picked out a Vera Wang gown and is working out with celeb trainer Gunnar Peterson "every single day" for the nuptials, set for July 10.
What it means [is] having that one day to just be together and have a good time," she says. "I think we're fun people, so the vibe is going to be fun."
Especially now that LaLa's hair grew back. That would have been interesting. The couple has a son, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, born on March 7, 2007.
