Cousins it appears that the folks of the ‘Love And Hip Hop’ franchise have decided to cut Erica Mena‘s water off!
In a post shared to social media Saturday morning, executives announced that Erica will not be returning for the next season of their Atlanta series.
“The ‘Love & Hip Hop’ franchise has never shied away from hard conversations in our community,” the VH1 series wrote. “Working hand-in-hand with our partners, viewers will see the impact of Erica Mena’s remarks play out in the final three episodes of the season.
The statement concluded, “Effective immediately, she will not appear in the next season of ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.”
LHH Franchise owner Mona Scott also released a message on Instagram as she shared an image of the word, “Handled.”
As we previously reported Erica and fellow LHH Atlanta cast member Spice shared a heated conversation in the most recently aired episode.
In a sit down conversation the ladies spoke upon Erica’s estranged relationship with her ex-husband and kids father Safaree.
Things made a turn for the worst almost instantly as the ladies began to discuss motherhood and Spice issued claims that Erica’s 16 year old son from a previous relationship, hates her.
In response Erica flipped the table and told the DanceHall artist that she should’ve died following surgery complications she endured in 2022. She also proceeded to call Spice the racial slur of monkey while echoing animal noises. “You monkey, you f–king blue monkey!”
A clip of of the altercation went viral on social media as folks calling for Erica to be fired from the franchise. While others feel Spice was in the wrong for mentioning a child.
Appearing in an interview with Forbes following the release of the controversial episode, Spice explained that the Erica’s insults haven’t directly effected her because she is aware of who she is.
“Because someone’s opinion of me does not value who I am and not because someone thinks something of me, that doesn’t mean that’s who I am…”
Cousins, what is your take on this situation?
