How La La And Carmelo Anthony Keep The Spark Alive While Juggling Their Crazy Careers

La La Anthony is a writer, a fashion designer and an occasional actress, and on top of it all she's also the mom to an eight-year-old and wife to New York Knicks player Carmelo Anthony.

How does the former MTV VJ manage to do it all while keeping her marriage on lock? In a conversation with HuffPost Live on Tuesday, she revealed to host Caitlyn Becker that keeping a "date night" is a big help.

"What you have to do is you have to make the relationship a priority, because with two schedules that are going in completely different directions, it's easy for a lot of time to go past and you're like, 'We haven't even spent much time together!'" she recounted.

Nothing matters more to the TV personality than achieving a healthy work-family balance, she said.

"We already have family time and time together, 'cause for me, at the end of all of it, that's the most important to me. I wouldn't be in a position to write these books or be here and feel good about what I'm doing if things with my family aren't in place."

Anthony's latest book, The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex, and Happiness, is out in bookstores now.
