So they say Rich Dollaz and Erica Mena are engaged, but could the engagement be fake? Last night, Twitter went crazy with people’s reactions to the first episode of Season 3 of Love and Hip Hop. For many people, the show just didn’t seem real, especially the interactions between one “current” couple and a former couple that called it off two years ago. Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz are said to be “so in love,” but we have to say we just didn’t see the chemistry last night or during the press meeting yesterday. Erica seems more into Rich than he is with her. Then they conveniently planted their first rumor yesterday about them getting busy at some public restroom in some New York nightclub the other night. So to us, all of it just seems so…fake. Apparently, we’re not the only people who feel that way because many expressed the same sentiments last night on Twitter. But one young lady in particular suggests she has proof that Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz engagement is fake.
Before we even get into what happened on Twitter last night, we do have to address that for the last 24 hours, Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz have been giving conflicting answers to anyone who has been asking them if they are engaged. Erica Mena says the couple is engaged and even posted wedding magazines to her Instagram account the other day, but Rich Dollaz flat out told Global Grind that they are not engaged.
If that’s not weird enough, a young woman posted what she says is a text message conversation that took place yesterday between her and Rich. In the messages, Rich seems to suggest that he is not engaged, and he even asked the girl to send him some sexy pictures like he’s not even in a relationship with Erica. The young woman then claims that she and Rich were actually in a relationship, but she broke things off when the blogs started to report that Rich was engaged to Erica Mena.
Peep the tweets:
The young woman then proceeded to upload text messages she claims were from Rich Dollaz. In the alleged messages, he claims he is not engaged and even asks her to send him sexy pictures of himself:
Of course Rich Dollaz denies that these text messages are real:
Mona Scott Young has been accused before of creating stories when there isn’t one, and even “staging” drama to keep the show interesting. Last year, Lil Scrappy even admitted the fight between him and Stevie J. was totally staged and encouraged by the producers. This is pretty much why Chrissy, Jim Jones, and Kimbella left the show.
Interestingky enough, despite all the drama that the first episode had, people are still wishing LHHATL was back on. We saw numerous tweets from people who admit the show is nowhere near as entertaining as LHHATL, but this one seems to have been the most retweeted:
Not only is Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz’s engagement and entire relationship most likely fake, but Joe Budden and Tahiry’s scenario on the show seems so forced. If you ask us, both have obviously moved on and this storyline is two years too late. Maybe Tahiry needed the money, so Joe is looking out, and that’s easy to understand if Tahiry is a waitress these days.
But tell us how you feel, do you believe any of the new story lines? Do you think LHHATL is the better show? Vent in the comment section below.
