Erica Mena is saying farewell to Love & Hip Hop New York. As previously reported, the former video model turned VH1 reality star stated that she’s leaving the reality TV cameras behind and is focused on her relationship to fiance, Shad Moss (a.k.a. Bow Wow). On Monday, she posted a lengthy Instagram message to her fans and critics, stating that she’s saying her final good-bye with her last episode. She writes:
Four years ago became #MenaMonday I let the world in and it’s been a crazy ride since. I’ve always been open about who I am & my relationships just because I know my story was meant to be told. I’ve made many mistakes and I get judge harshly. Thank God I’m as tough and bold as I am because the truth is many are like me.
I have fan base that now has become my family! I can’t thank you all enough for following & riding this ride. You are all appreciated. Learning from my mistakes and loving me no matter what rumors are made up.

Oh and YES I’m Sorry … I know I’ve forced you all to like certain people just because I decided to date them … I know it won’t be the same after tonight’s show but I do know that no matter what I’m always going to be Open and Real with you all. This chapter has ended but the real deal is the journey has just begun.
Tonight is indeed my last show. Good luck to everyone. Wish you all the best. Always #MenaMondays AKA The Only Reason You All Watch #LHHNY … #BreadWinner
There are conflicting reports as to whether or not Erica and Shad are actually married or simply want the public to speculate on their relationship status. Last week, Shad posted a photo of Erica in a wedding gown [click here for the back-story]. And even Erica posted a photo of herself in what appears to be a wedding veil. In either case, we wish them the best.
