Erica Mena’s comments to Spice resulted in her being fired from LHHATL.
“Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” stars just wrapped up one of the most controversial seasons yet. Spice and Erica Mena fell out after Safaree Samuels made some very interesting claims. He told Spice that Erica lied about him not paying child support. He then showed her proof of him making payments this year. To top off, Safaree also told Spice that Erica was jealous when he was concerned during her medical scare. According to Safaree, Erica questioned why he cared about Spice but didn’t have the same concern when she nearly died giving birth. When Erica and Spice met up to talk about the situation, things went left. At one point, Spice told Erica her son hates her. And Erica called Spice a monkey.
Erica’s comments to Spice did not sit well with multiple cast members as well as fans of the show. It was eventually decided that Erica would no longer be on LHHATL. MTV released a statement confirming that Erica will not be on the upcoming season.
While many “Love And Hip Hop Atlanta” fans were happy with this decision, others felt like Spice should have been held accountable as well.
Akbar wrote, “This season on Lhh ain’t nobody seeing how Spice is the bully? 🤣🤣😂😂 and that is what gets me.”
Spice addressed her behavior.
She went on to say that Karlie Redd was clearly in “fear for her life” when Spice attempted to run up on her during the season finale. Karlie was caught off guard because she and Spice were not even engaging at the moment before the attack occurred. As for Spice, she was upset that Karlie allowed her house to be used to film a music video. Spice has been fuming about Karlie buying a house next to hers. She believes this is an invasion of her and her children’s privacy.
Well, Spice talked about this during the LHHATL special recently filmed about colorism and racism. The cast discussed Erica’s comments and their experiences with bigotry. During the special, Spice said she was very “aggressive” while filming.
“I have been pretty aggressive this season. Again, I feel like it stems from a lot of things. A lot of hurt, a lot of pain, a lot of anger inside. I’m going to leave this table to work on myself, to heal. I have had a traumatic experience as well. With Karlie’s situation, because that’s what we ended with, it comes from a place of every time I love someone, they hurt me or betray me. And I think I sometimes let my anger get the best of me and I just gotta work on myself and take accountability for being angry because I’m so hurt.”
She continued, “I don’t wanna blame it on colorism because I do know a lot of people instill a lot of things on me because of my color. So I’m already guilty based on anything. And so I take full accountability for being a little hurt and angry this season. But I’m gonna work on that and work on myself. And I know I’m gonna heal and take away a lot from everything. But I’ll work on myself. I started my journey and I know I’ll overcome.”
