Last week, we told you that “Love & Hip Hop” star Erica Mena publicly confessed to having carried on an affair with Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club host, DJ Envy. Mena spilled the tea regarding her homewrecking deed during an interview, where she also revealed that she would be releasing a book this April that would recount all of the nitty-gritty details about the affair. She also unapologetically revealed that she didn’t find herself to be a homewrecker because Envy was unhappily married.

During his show this morning, Envy confirmed that he did in fact have an extramarital affair with the “Love & Hip Hop” star. He also confessed that the affair came during a challenging time in his life, reports The Jasmine Brand.

“A couple of months ago, I called my wife on air and asked her for forgiveness. I told her I needed change. I had a close relationship with God and I changed. Now, my wife, has been with me over 18 years. We’ve been married 11 years. The best heart that you’ll ever know. She’s that type of person that’ll change your life.”

“It’s a difficult thing to do. Sometimes being married it makes you insecure dude. I looked like I had everything. It was scary, my wife is gorgeous. She might me somebody that’s smarter than me. It made me insecure.”

“With being insecure, with me being weak. I was so insecure and so down..I started messing with somebody that was beneath me. A bird. Evil. A liar. Somebody that was desperate and its just so pathetic. I mean I didn’t have to feed this person no feed. I didn’t have to make her feel special, because she wasn’t. So that’s what it was.”

He also made it clear that he desires to work things out with his wife, but even if the marriage doesn’t survive, his family will.

“With the help of God, this situation has made my family tighter. Like tighter. I’m honest. I had to be honest with myself. And the hardest thing I had to do was tell my wife EVERYTHING. When I say everything. She looked at me so different. To look at my family. So you guys follow me on twitter. We’re good. We’re not great. I don’t know what happens from here. Now if we remain together, as a relationship, we’ll see. But as a family, nobody’s stopping us. I just want to tell you ‘I love you. And we’ll see what God has in store for us.”

Although Envy doesn’t actually utter Erica’s name, it’s quite obvious who he is referring to. It’s also interesting to note that his wife Gia will be making her debut as the newest addition to “Real Housewives of New Jersey” this season.

    Oh please is he calling the woman he had an affair with a bad person so that he looks like the good guy? He is worse that the woman he had an affair with, he was the one married and now he does not even have the spine to take his mistake as a man, he somehow has to throw the woman he used under the bus. I pity the wife.

    Notice how in his confession of cheating on his wife he made a point to downgrade Erica to make his indiscretion seem minimal. Cheating is cheating and owning your part in the deed is the first step to accepting that you messed up. No need to bring down the girl you cheated with it’s like saying “Yea I cheated, BUT the girl I cheated on you with wasn’t ish, she ain’t got nothing on you!” If she ain’t ish she shouldn’t be worth you cheating on your wife with.

      Self preservation and the actions of a little boy in pain. These cheating dogs love to go around thinking they have the ow in check and soon as she proves otherwise and blows up the spot the guys turn on them and suddenly the ow becomes a pariah! Like I said if I was his wife i’d put a knot bigger than a bread box upside his head every time he spoke badly about the ow, it shows that he still has some feelings there.

      • Philly Flower

        if I was his wife i’d put a knot bigger than a bread box upside his head every time he spoke badly about the “OW”, it shows that he still has some feelings there. YES!!! He liked her for whatever reason!! She was NOT a ONE and DONE….. He had a RELATIONSHIP with this women! smh

    It’s amazing how she is beneath him now but when he was getting it on with her, she wasn’t. Smh….

    • Mia

      I’m sure she was beneath him… On top, from the side, etc,etc! Looool

      • IllyPhilly

        Bwhahaha!!

      • Tamz

        Touche. Lol!!!

  • Me

    N*gga please! How about accept responsiblity for cheating on your wife and leave it at that. I’m pretty sure Erica didn’t put a gun to his head and make him eff her. I cannot stand people who make excuses for their behavior. Man up and admit what you did.

    • Mia

      Cosign, but sadly we women make it okay for men to get away with this type of foolishness by not making them responsible for their pe nis.

      • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

        Yes it isn’t his fault he’s a victim of his own lack of dyck control and that harlot. All fifty times he slept with her. Men are just brainless walking p*nises that can’t be expected to control themselves.

    “I started messing with somebody that was beneath me. Somebody that was desperate. I mean I
    didn’t have to feed this person. I didn’t have to make her feel
    special, because she wasn’t. Every woman should read this before she considers being a man’s jump off, whether he’s married or not. This is exactly how he feels about you! He just doesn’t say it to your face. #iwouldratherhaveaman’slovethanhisdick

    • Mia

      Oh please! Lol if a man truly feels like that about the ow then I’d hate to hear what he feels for his wife,(you know the woman he made a conscious choice to disrespect for so called trash) That rhetoric was said because he was put on blast and his bank account is nervous. Lol

      idratherhavemyselfrespectthanacheatingman

      • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

        LOL @ his bank account being nervous.

      • Jay Lane

        But he thought enough of Gia to make her his wife. He didn’t even make Erica a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Any suggestion of 2nd fiddle status is enough to insult my sensibilities.

        • Mia

          At the end of the day his wifing her means nothing if a woman who isn’t worth a pb&j sandwhich is worth him sleeping with, disrespecting his wife and their family. No matter how u spin this (his last name, his ring, money) the wife is still losing and that’s sad because she’s probably a good woman.

          • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

            Yep. Who wants to be the wife of some idiot who would let a “bird” ruin his happy home? No thanks.

          • Nikki

            Right! Being “wife/wifey” mean NOTHING to a man that behaves that way. He is saying that Erica was beneath him. Well, he laid up with her, so what does that say about him? He messed around with this “bird” for the longest and went and smiled in his wife’s face all the while. Hmmm, I just got pissed off lol

            • MonicaT

              He deserves the DONKEY OF THE YEAR!!!! He’s saving face with his wife. Now she’s a bird and he didn’t feed her or she wasn’t special. He still disrespect his wife their marriage and family. I’m sure he’s scared of what she’s going to put in this book. At least that bird maned up and sid she slept with a married man not blaming him.

        • Nikki

          Yet, he didn’t think enough of her to be faithful.

  • sabrina

    If he says he’s changed, I believe him. God really and truly can change people. I see it happen all the time.

    • Mia

      I think a cheater can only change if they change their actions without getting caught. It’s easy to play the role when u get caught and you risk losing it all.

      • sabrina

        But when a cheater changes without getting caught, there’s also something there that’s sparking him/her to change, no? They may finally realize that they’re hurting the person they love, they’re ruining their family, etc. So they’re also aware of that risk of losing it all, but their significant other just may not have caught on yet. Envy realized these things too (even though he was a bit too late), so he can still very well and change.

        …Maybe I just hope to see the best come out in people too much. But what’s wrong with that?

        • Mia

          There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s an admirable quality. I guess I just deal with reality and based on his statement he doesn’t seem as if he’s taken FULL responsibility for his actions. The ow shud be a non factor at this point. And if I was his wife I wouldn’t tolerate him talking badly about his mistress because she wasnt a bird when he was sleeping with her.

          And to answer your other question, I’d rather a person realize what they’ve done and the mistakes they’ve made on their own, without getting caught and having FEAR serve them a wake up call.

          • Philly Flower

            You said a MOUTH full “if I was his wife I wouldn’t tolerate him talking badly about his mistress because she wasn’t a bird when he was sleeping with her.” He’s ONLY taking shots/dissing her because she started singing like she was auditioning for American Idol NY!!! From the sounds of it he’s been dealing with her for a minute. (side bar) She was NOT the first and will NOT be the last!!! IJS…..

            • Mia

              LMAO @ “American idol” comment!

        • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

          More like the newness and excitement of that new kitty wears off and the repercussions of getting caught start weighing more on the conscious.

      • MonicaT

        I agree change generally comes about because you make the conscious choice to stop what is is you’re doing. It’s a choice. If your caught or exposed the likely hood of you learning a lesson is zero. I’m sure this isn;t his first rodeo and now that she is writing a book you know how it goes other birds see her make money off this affair they will want to do the same. A gulity conscious can cause you to stop, but that doesn’t mean you will learn a lesson. His wife has been with him 18 years and she would and should know if he is a changed man. Hopefully she’s not one of those delusional women! Talking bad and putting down the bird you slept with only proves he’s not a change man! He just got caught!

        • Mia

          …..And we’re done (drops mic)! Bravo Monica!

    • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

      He also SAID he would love honor and obey his wife. That was a lie, so what makes this the truth?

      • sabrina

        Well, we just have to wait and see, won’t we?

        • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

          Nah not me because I don’t really care all that much. This hits close to home for you huh?

          • sabrina

            Lol! And haha, no not at all! But when people bring God into situations, I get interested.

      • Mia

        Girl you better preach it!

    • Me

      He changed but he disrespected the woman HE chose to risk his marriage with? Nahhh. He got more work to do.
