Her heart might still be on the mend, but La La Anthony has got all the love she needs. The reality star recently sat down to talk about her journey to self-love, and from the sounds of it? Perhaps we could all learn a thing or two from her. Here's what the Power actress had to say for herself.

La La joked of her "protective" son.

Might Mr. Right be right around the corner? Or perhaps will La La be riding out her latest chapter alongside her son? Her guess is as good as ours - but that's just fine. "I don't know what God has in store for me... [but] whatever is supposed to be will be," Anthony assured The Angie Martinez Show back in October.
