'Baggage Claim' actress adds NYT Bestselling author to her resume

“The Love Playbook” is getting a lot of love. It’s the kind of love that has taken La La Anthony’s book to No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller list in just a week.

Along with DJ, host, actress and reality star, La La can now add New York Times Bestselling author to her resume. According to reports, Newscaster sent an email stating the book “came out the gate selling strong and those sales continued to rise steadily throughout the week.”

La La, 34, has been on an intense press tour to promote “The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex, and Happiness,” and it paid off. The book offers the basketball wife’s advice on love and relationships.

Anthony also tapped her celeb friends for advice on everything from sex to divorce. Co-authored by Karen Hunter, the book also includes tips on how to deal with fickle friends and how to snag a baller. Recently she's opened up about being a domestic violence survivor in the hopes that young girls understand that abuse is not love.

“The core of ‘The Playbook’ is about self esteem and loving yourself and not looking for a man to validate you or make you feel whole,” she said. “That’s the message I want, especially for young women, to get out of this book. [Do] not feel like you need a man to feel whole or worthy.”

It also helps when your NBA hubby, Carmelo Anthony, is super supportive and in interviews has said, “Buy the book” and posted pictures of La La holding the book to his Instagram.
