Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz definitely brought the drama to Love & Hip Hop this season, Erica Mena having her own doses of drama going on off the set of the show involving other folks in the business. Before the third season got a chance to kick off, whispers suggested that congrats were in order for Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz as it was rumored that they had gotten engaged. Rich Dollaz didn’t let the rumor linger long as he denied making Erica his fiancee’, and seemed to be denying their relationship altogether. Mixing business with pleasure in this case was a no go as far as Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz were concerned as Rich gave Erica a shot at her music career taking on the role as her manager, Erica now claiming that she has a thing for women now. Erica Mena recorded the song ‘Where Do I Go From Here’ with Rich but he eventually gave the song to Olivia after Erica refused to sign a contract that he drew up between them. Talking with Writers Life Chats, Erica Mena talks about her initial intentions with Rich Dollaz and says that she wasn’t looking to get into anything serious with him in the beginning and says though that she is grateful for what he did for her and her career:

“My intention with Rich going into it was strictly business…The one thing, I don’t care what nobody says, I will always be grateful to everything Rich has done for me. I will never take that from him because he’s given me the outlet…But you gotta go with your gut. And as much as he was riding for me, and trust me honey, I was riding much harder. But something didn’t feel right. It was the pressure of this contract where I get it, he had to be cautious. But I kinda thought that because he believed in me and I believed in him, we were automatically in this together. And eventually the contract will come…I think in the end, I made the best decision.Take your song. I hope it helps Liv come back from the dead because we all know she’s not going far. And hopefully from that, he can grow from this. To do something like that to somebody says a whole lot about your character. And you know what, in the end, I stuck to my guns and thank God I did because I would be stuck with not only management that deceives you and is a snake, have people spy on you and all this other craziness…”

And in the same breath, Erica goes in on Rich’s skills as a manager, saying that Rich couldn’t make a decision on his own without consulting other people and calls him a mama’s boy:

“Rich needed opinions from a guy that hasn’t rapped in 100 years and probably has nothing to show for nothing and the opinion of his momma, who is always gonna freakin’ cater to you and baby you and tell you what you wanna hear. And I needed a real man let alone, a real manager. So my gut was telling me not to sign for a reason.”

Erica also talks about her upcoming book titled ‘Underneath It All’ that she is releasing, which is focusing on the troubling things that she has been through in the past, and she says that she hopes that people can learn from her mistakes to keep themselves from making the same ones she did:

“If I can tell my story, that this is the mistake I made and it saves somebody the headache of thinking that you have somebody that’s down for you, when they’re only going to back stab you and give your song away behind your back, then so be it.”

As far as her music is concerned, Erica says that she is keeping things going with it as she is about to drop a video for ‘Where Do I Go From Here’.

    I’m so tired of Erica. These reality chicks act so self entitled and have no talent to back it up. I blame Kim Kardashian.

    How can she talk when she has only been in the music business for 2 minutes? Shes unproven, unprofessional, unoriginal and doesn’t know a chorus from a bridge. She’s so ridiculous trying to shade his career as a manager as if she knows anything about the business. Ugh. And who the heck did she mess with to get a book deal?

    I’m mad that she thought she needed to have a “singing career.” Bish can’t sing…she can’t even f-ck for tracks right. Rich is the biggest sucka and she couldn’t manage to pull that off. Hilarious.

    I’m mad she came at PETE GUNZ! He don’t have to rap to be relevant. She’s done! And she looks like a joke when she talks. Everything about this little girl irritates the h*ll out of me. Liv can SANG circle around this crow. Ugh let me hop of my box….
