Reality Star Is Fed Up With Hostile Cast Members
When viewers check out the upcoming Love and Hip Hop New York reunion – one popular cast member will be notably absent.
Erica Mena boycotted filming the Love and Hip Hop reunion and has had enough of other cast members hating on her and using her to boost their story lines, Bossip has learned. The 27-year-old stopped filming the show in the early part of 2015, and viewers will see less and less of her as the series unfolds, a source close to Mena said.
“A lot of people cast this season were cast because of beef with her,” a source close to Shad Moss’ fiancé told Bossip, noting that Chrissy, Cyn Santana and Jhonni Blaze all had problems with Mena. “Erica was pretty much sick of the deflecting and the projecting of off other people’s negativity.”
Mena also has a history of turning up at the Love and Hip Hop reunion shows. Just last year, she laid hands on former cast member Nya Lee. With Blaze and others gunning to fight her, Mena simply decided she’s not about that life.
“She’s about to be somebody’s wife,” the source told Bossip, “and she didn’t want to put herself in the type of space where that could happen.”
Mena skipped shooting the Love and Hip Hop New York reunion Tuesday, and instead went to Florida to celebrate her son’s birthday. Mena and show creator Mona Scott-Young privately filmed her portion of the reunion last week.
Mena has instead focusing on her other projects: her recent Playboy shoot, a clothing line, HER, a new line of jewelry out this spring, editorial spreads in Latina and People magazine – and her upcoming nuptials to Shad Moss.
“She didn’t want to put herself in a place where she has to act negative,” the source added. “She’s in a different place now.”
Oh now Erica Mena is taking the high road? Do you think she’ll continue playing nice now that she’s about to be Shad Moss’s wife?
