La La Anthony is stylish, successful and a wonderful mother – but please believe, she was taking cues from mom dukes.
While on stage carrying out their hosting duties at Dear Mama: An Event To Honor Moms, La La and Anthony Anderson gave a special shout out to the family that came to join them. It was La La’s heartfelt shout out to her mother Carmen Surillo which nearly brought on the waterworks.
“I definitely want to take a minute to acknowledge my mother Carmen Surillo who has been there for me through the best times, the toughest times, everything. Thank you so much mom for being my rock. You are definitely the real MVP.”
If you’ve been watching closely, Ms. Surillo has always been a avid supporter of her daughter. The Brooklyn-born mom was front and center at the signing of La La’s book The Power Playbook. Not to mention, La La has continuously mentioned her mom in interviews as her #1 hero.
