UPDATED: Love & Hip Hop’s Erica Mena & Rich Dollaz Are Engaged

Apparently, reality TV brings people together, literally. Love & Hip Hop (New York) reality stars, Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz (who manages reality star/singer Olivia) are officially engaged. With season 3 airing next week, viewers learned (via promo trailers) that the two were romantically involved. And if that’s not a big enough shocker, this week, Erica posted some wedding magazines on her Instagram, hinting that nuptials may be in her future.

Thursday evening, we attended the NYC screening of Love & Hip Hop (NY) and chatted with the couple, asking them flat out about engagement rumors. Peep an excerpt of the interview below:

the Jasmine Brand: 

We were all over your Instagram and we noticed some wedding ‘stuff’. What’s up with with that?

Erica Mena:


Rich Dollaz:

Because we’re gonna get married, soon. Probably this summer.

the Jasmine Brand:

Are you engaged, in real life?

Rick Dollaz:

Yes, we are engaged. That’s my girl.

the Jasmine Brand:

Really? Does anyone know that?

Rich Dollaz:

I’m dead serious.

the Jasmine Brand:

You’re the only person that went on Instagram…so now you have a scoop.

We’re confident that this story-line will play out on the upcoming season. Congrats to the love birds!

UPDATED: According to Global Grind, since the story hit, Erica and Rich have released conflicting statements. Erica told the site:

“I didn’t know that we were going to tell people about it! I guess Rich decided to blurt it out. It wasn’t done intentionally. I didn’t know we were gonna announce it last night. I wasn’t expecting it. I thought we were going to keep it on the DL, but I guess he felt it was the right time.”

And Rich Dollaz, explained:

“No, I’m not! I’m not engaged. Rich Dollaz is not engaged. What happened was, I ain’t gonna say shorty was lying or nothin’, but Erica had taken some pictures on Instagram of some wedding magazine. A girl [at the party] asked her about it and asked if she was getting married and I SARCASTICALLY said ‘Yeah, we’re getting married. Uh huh, next week we’re getting married.’ She took that, and I don’t know if the music was loud and the liquor was flowing, and she could be serious. But I was not. I was not.”

 What do I think? Perhaps I’ll pull the audio for y’all to decide….
