Love & Hip-Hop: Erica Mena Gives An Update On Her Music Career & Speaks On Being Compared To Amber Rose

After the reunion special of VH1‘s ‘Love & Hip-Hop’, we haven’t heard much from model-turned-singer Erica Mena. On season two of Love & Hip-Hop, she gave the viewers a sneak peek of her singing. This 24-year-old Bronx native is still focusing on pursuing her music dreams and balancing mother duties. In a recent interview with SOHH, Mena gave an update on her music career and spoke about being compared to Amber Rose. Below are some excerpts:

On balancing mother duties, modeling and singing.

“Right now, it’s definitely about the music and trying to figure out what we’re going to be putting out, but I’m really excited,” Mena told SOHH when asked what fans can expect from her in the near future. “I think you guys are going to be surprised and won’t know what to expect is coming from me. I try to dedicate as much time as possible for the music. I try to put in studio time while my son is in school or after he’s home and asleep. It really depends on what’s going on because all of my days are different. Right now, any little bit of studio time for me is liberating. Even if I only get an hour a day, I’m in the studio writing, recording and doing as much as possible. For me, it’s definitely about perfecting the craft and making sure what I deliver is something I feel proud of.”

On being compared to Amber Rose.

“Modeling is always going to be my first love, I’ve been modeling since I was 16, so it’s been a big part of my life,” Mena added. “I think where I’m coming from with the music is definitely going to be different. I’m not really worried about being compared to someone like Amber Rose. Her style and work ethic right now is amazing. I don’t find it insulting to be compared to Amber Rose. I love her. I definitely think once people hear the sound, I think I’ll be able to build my own category of my own.”

Love & Hip-Hop Exclusive: Which Cast Member Could Be Pregnant?

This is a Don Bleek exclusive! Last month, “New York’s radio station Power 105.1’s “The Breakfeast Club” Angela Yee revealed that she heard one of the ladies (she didn’t say which one) from VH1’s Love and Hip-Hop is pregnant according to the industry rumor mill.”

I heard who it is but will NOT reveal which cast member is pregnant at this time. I will say, Chrissy, Yandy, Olivia, Emily, and Kimbella are in a relationship. Chrissy is engaged to Jim Jones, Yandy is in a relationship, Olivia is dating a basketball player overseas, Emily is still dating Fabolous and Kimbella is dating Juelz Santana. Erica, Teairra Mari and Somaya are single. Which lady do you think is pregnant?

Love & Hip-Hop: Kimbella Goes In On Erica And Claims She Is A Former Stripper & Gave Dome For $200

In last Monday’s episode of Love & Hip-Hop, Kimbella got into an ugly fight with Erica Mena. The two ladies fought after Vanderhee tossed a champagne glass at Mena, over some bad comments Mena had made regarding Vanderhee’s modeling career. The YBF recently chatted with Kimbella and she claimed that Erica “was found stripping in the Valley and giving blow jobs for $200.” Read the excerpts below:

Erica Mena has been popping off about your big fight this week. She seemed to start going in on you as soon as you opened you mouth and it was your first REAL time meeting?! She says a lot ended up on the cutting floor and the show was shaped to make her look like the bad guy. Do you agree? What’s your side of the story?

I don’t agree. She is bi-polar. In fact, she is a crack whore and you will get to see it in the rest of the episodes brought to you by VH1! She is obviously embarrassed by her actions because she really got to see who “she” really is. She doesn’t know how to conduct herself as a lady and it showed. I basically I was attacked. I tried to stay classy but she tried my patience and crossed the line. It’s crazy to hear her blaming VH1 and not herself.Even the producers were dumbfounded when all this happened.

Did you know Erica before this?

No! What’s wrong with these women? What did I do to Chrissy or Erica for them to do this to me?
I don’t know her….and I haven’t heard anything great about her. The one thing I can tell you is that folks in the industry are saying before “Love & Hip Hop,” she was found stripping in the Valley and giving blow jobs for $200. So that is the career that me and VH1 are ruining?

Erica said she didn’t call the cops. is this true? Were any police reports filed?

There is a police report filed. She did call the cops…and she was going to press charges (she didn’t). She called the cops because her face was cut. But wait, isn’t she from the Bronx but she’s calling the po po!

There was a rumor that you and Erica were both–at the same time–sleeping with Emily B.’s baby’s daddy, rapper Fabolous, back in the day.  And that’s supposedly why Erica has beef with you.  She’s denied it.  Can you confirm or deny?

I have no idea what anybody is talking about.  I dated Fab three years ago…if she dated him three years ago….that’s fine.

Love & Hip-Hop: Erica Mena Blasts VH1 & Said Her Fight With Kimbella Affected Her “Modeling” Career

This past Monday, the reality world was introduced to model Erica Mena, on the sixth episode Love & Hip-Hop. Every since the episode aired, Mena have been getting a lot of negative feedback in the press. This 24-year-old Bronx native is now criticizing VH1 over the way she was portrayed in the show. Mena got into an ugly fight with Kimbella Vanderhee. The two ladies fought after Vanderhee tossed a champagne glass at Mena, over some bad comments Mena had made regarding Vanderhee’s modeling career. Now, Mena is claiming the fight that aired on this week’s episode of Love & Hip Hop has ruined her modeling career and it’s VH1‘s fault.

Mena told TMZ, she was completely misrepresented in the episode — blaming show editors for unfairly portraying her as the bad guy … and Kimbella as an angel. “My whole image in my career is now affected by this. I wanted them to pull this clip because I don’t want to show this side of me,” said Mena.

Love & Hip-Hop: Erica Mena Talks Kimbella Fight, Being Linked To Juelz Santana, Love & Hip-Hop 2 & Her Baby Father

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.
