EXCLUSIVE: La La Anthony Talks Beauty, Exercise & Her Favorite New Low-Cal Cocktail

How do you keep track of your culture? With your husband and child, how do you keep in touch with your roots?

It’s who I am. It’s what I live. It’s my mom. It’s my family. It’s Christmas when we’re eating pasteles. It’s part of our life so it’s not really that I have to keep up with it because it’s my life. You know, my mom just came back from Puerto Rico and she’s filling me in on how our family is doing there. I went to Puerto Rico this summer. I definitely stay in touch with what’s going on.

What’s your favorite part of Puerto Rico or Puerto Rican culture?

What I did on this last trip in Puerto Rico! I went to Fajardo and I went to the fluorescent river. For me, that was an amazing experience. It's the sixth wonder of the world and to see the river light up night, it’s amazing.
