Found January 11, 2013 on The Other Paper:

The center of Monday night's altercation between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett — Melo's estranged wife La La Anthony — finally weighed in on the two NBA stars almost coming to blows over KG's reported on-the-court assertion that she "tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios." A smiling La La showed up at the Manhattan restaurant Serendipity Thursday night sporting a pair of $1,695 knee-high Givenchy boots and sounded like she was hoping to cash in on the breakfast cereal's new found notoriety with all three parties involved. The reality TV star sent this light-hearted sweet tweet on her Twitter account: "Not for nothing, but we ALL deserve a check or free cereal 4all the publicity we've given Honey Nut Cheerios! LOL!" she tweeted at #cantbelieveeverything. La La knows what's buzz-worthy and was a lot Melo-er than her husband about the verbal jab. Her tweet was a text book example of how to get free stuff in a passive-aggressive, Kardashian reality TV kind of way.
