The Erica Mena and K. Michelle beef continues? “Love and Hip Hop New York” was a sinking ship last season considering the ratings dropped the lowest they’ve ever been since the first season, but Mona Scott Young figured a new love triangle in Amina Buddafly, Peter Gunz and Tara Wallace; as well as appearances from “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star K. Michelle could improve things. So far, the formula has worked. And the ratings are once again impressive. But LHHNY star Erica Mena still wants a piece of K. Michelle and she’s still counting down the days until they can meet face to face and address their “beef,” even if it does lead to a physical confrontation (she’s hoping it does).
K. Michelle has already made it clear that she doesn’t want to entertain Erica because she feels she’s just trying to use her for more camera time, but Erica seems to think the singer is just afraid to face her. She even said in a recent interview with Coco Fab that K. Michelle is insecure:
“That’s another insecure female. It’s sad because I have never met K. Michelle. We have similar backgrounds with domestic violence and having a long hard road when it comes to establishing ourselves as artists in this industry.
“She got kicked out of Atlanta so she decided to come to New York and I think she knew instantly that I was the one who held authority on the show and she just needed some ammunition and have something going on. The first thing she decided to do was talk about me.”
K. Michelle seems to feel as if Erica started taking shots first and it did appear that way on Twitter. But Erica insists otherwise and says the singer just sees her as a threat:
“It kind of threw me for a loop that when she started shooting all she could talk about was me and Rich and she had some real strong opinions on us. She doesn’t think anything of me because she knows nothing about me. Clearly I’m a threat and it is what it is.”
Erica then goes on to say once again that K. Michelle is afraid to film with her and she hopes she will be able to “deal with her” at the reunion show.
