Erica Mena made it clear to her social media followers that she doesn’t think it would be a good idea to tie the knot with Bow Wow on live television like Yandy and Mendeecees did, and now she’s claiming Mona Scott Young originally asked her to walk down the aisle on TV first.
She tells Global Grind:
“No, they came to me for the wedding. The wedding special was ours. And then we turned it down, so Yandy (Smith) got it…process of elimination. That whole getting married live, having the fans pick the cake, all that stuff… That was my idea.
“I didn’t want it to be a s**t show. Marriage is a serious thing.
“We wanted it to be very sentimental. We wanted it done very tasteful and meaningful at the same time. We wanted to involve the viewers, because people have seen me go through so much turmoil and drama and heartbreak. I’ve been through so much and I can’t cheat myself anymore. I’ve done that for four years being on that show.”
