In tonight’s episode of Love & Hip-Hop, the reality world was introduced to Erica Mena, who have been in this industry for the past eight years. The Bronx native has a baby by Fat Joe’s affiliate, Raul Conde. In an interview with Vibe, Mena talked about Love & Hip-Hop, being linked to Juelz Santana, fight with Kimbella and much more. Below are some excerpts:
It seemed like you were just a guest on the Love & Hip-Hop 2 trailer but word is that you’re officially on the cast.
I can’t really give too much away but you will be seeing me throughout this season. I’m not an official castmember for this particular season but I’m definitely in the mix. I’v’e been in the game since I was 16, so it makes perfect sense as far as the whole connection with me being part of the show.
You’re not new to reality TV so how did you end up working at Dash on Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami?
My son’s father, who is actually Fat Joe’s affiliate, Raul Conde—he does music videos and he’s good friends with Scott Disick and when we were living in Miami Kourtney came because they were about to open the store and she asked me to help her get the store running and basically be one of the girls to help her get everything up and running. It was a great experience for sure.

There was a random blog post that romantically linked you to Juelz Sananta, which sounded odd.
That’s Kimbella! I’ve been in a 7-year relationship, pretty much since I started in the game. I’ve never dated Juelz. I never actually met him physically. But you know, me and his new thing—whatever her name is—she’s definitely something that I know of.
You mean Kimbella. There’s definitely some history between you and she. What happened?
There’s no real history, it is what it is. I’ve been in the game for some years now so I’ve seen the worst of it, I’ve seen the best of it, I’ve seen who is who and what is what. When you’re around, you know what’s what and that’s all I can really say as of right now.
Kimbella seems to get under a lot of people’s skin from what I’ve saw in the trailer.
What it is with me is that I hold no bars. I’m definitely one of those chicks that when I feel it, I say it. It is what it is; I’ll deal with the consequences later. Whether you like what I say or how I am, you either hate it or love it.
