Love and Hip Hop star Erica Mena is definitely one of the more fiery chicks on the show. Even though the reality star is now taking a stab at something new and trying to launch a music career, she’s still pretty much still up to her old tricks and causing controversy like always in her life off-screen. Recently, she made headlines for fighting at a nail salon, and then of course she pranked the media and had folks thinking she was pregnant for all of 24 hours. And with the announcement of a recent book deal, it’s clear that Erica has no plans of slowing down anytime soon.
In a recent interview with I Am Super Gorge, Erica talks her current relationship status with Rich Dollaz, the pregnancy rumors, what really went down at the nail salon that day and led to the brawl, and what she’s got lined up in the future.
On her current relationship status with Rich Dollaz, she says:
“Right now we are kind of taking a break. Me and Rich have been overwhelmed and consumed by this bullsh*t about work and it just been a lot. It’s not like we’re over and done with but we decided to kind of take it easy, in the sense of focusing on work more. We’re so passionate about work that it kind of conflicts with our relationship a little bit. So right now the main focus is work.”
When it comes to the fight Erica had at the nail salon, the reason she gives behind the brawl is a surprising one:
“Long story short, I was approached by Rich. It’s no secret women are attracted to me. I have a thing where ladies are secretly attracted to me. I’m definitely not shy about my sexuality and I think Rich came to the realization with that. It kind of spiraled out of control. Just to clear up the air, I wasn’t fighting over a guy. In fact, the fight was over a female claiming to have slept with me.”
Erica also addressed the pregnancy rumors, but didn’t confirm or deny the reports (although there is a photo of her recently chugging down a bottle of patron at a party circulating the blogs):
“I would rather keep people in suspense, but you guys will be surprised at the final answer. I’m real excited.”
The reality star also revealed her plans to take a stab at an acting career:
“I’m going to start shooting a movie in Toronto for about two weeks. I’m playing a female boxer. “
