EXCLUSIVE: Erica Mena Joins Love & Hip Hop Atlanta

theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports Erica Mena is returning to the Love & Hip Hop franchise. Sources tell us that she’s been cast on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.

She said she would never return to the show, but she’s back. They even threw her a party in Atlanta – on camera of course – to celebrate her official return to the show and welcome her to the A.

We hear that logistically, it didn’t make sense for her to return to New York and since she’s always in Atlanta, her storyline and relationships were a better fit.

After being on the show for 4 seasons, Erica quit Love & Hip Hop (NY) in 2015, explaining that she was ready to officially close that chapter of her life.

At the time, she was engaged to rapper Bow Wow, who also stars on WE TV’s ‘Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta’. It was rumored that Bow Wow was influential in Mena leaving the franchise.

He thought it was ghetto and beneath her. It just wasn’t a good look, as far as he was concerned.

Prior to her leaving, Mena stated publicly that VH1 had initially offered her a wedding special, to document her wedding ceremony to Bow Wow.


However, Love & Hip Hop NY’s Yandy Smith received a wedding special instead. Erica and Bow Wow later split, calling off their engagement.

No additional details about her storyline have been revealed.

Are you excited for Erica’s return to Love & Hip Hop?

    It was ghetto and beneath her?! ahahahaha….he wasn’t acting any better on his own show. It will be interesting to see how she fits in with the cast of Atlanta.

  • N’Deye Delgado

    She’s ghetto and should be glad somebody gave her ratchet ass a platform because forreal her talent is cat fights… that’s all she ever contributed to the show… I agree confidence is a good thing to have but she needs a good size piece of humble pie

    • Aduni Ubaka

      Just like that crazy bitch on bb wives thst was married to Ochoa conco

      • N’Deye Delgado

        Yupp just like Evelyn!

  • Deb Dyson

    This should be interesting, them NYC chicks is cats compared to them Atlanta ones, they’re rats with knives. Where is Tommie at for starter’s, let’s give Mena a real southern welcome, she don’t stand a chance.

    • Camden

      Oh Shat! She better try to be Tommie’s friend! lol!!

      • Deb Dyson

        You already know (in my big freeda voice) I love Tommie she is a stone cold killer. I liked Mena too but, I agree with ya she better make friends with Tommie first & fast…. Peace.

          I LUVVV Tommie! She’s about keeping it real with whoever, whatever at anytime and anyplace. And she makes no excuses for her problems that she has had, and situations that she has brought on herself. but I do not like Erica Mena. To me she’s never really had a storyline. she’s not talented, and I don’t see her getting along with any of that cast.

          • Deb Dyson

            I don’t think she’ll fit in either, we’ll have fun watching her try.

    • N’Deye Delgado

      yaaaaassss I Love Tommie
