‘He Deceived Me:’ Erica Mena Now Claims That She Was Unaware Of DJ Envy’s Marriage

Earlier today, we told you about radio host DJ Envy coming clean over the air about his relationship with “Love & Hip Hop” star Erica Mena. His confession appeared to be in response to Erica’s internet radio interview from last week, where she confessed to sleeping with the married DJ, justified it by saying he didn’t act like a “proud married man” and revealed that she would be dropping a tell-all book about the affair. Now today, in an interview that appears to be in response to Envy’s confession, the walking, talking, breathing contradiction told Vibe Vixen that Envy failed to inform her that he was married.

“DJ Envy’s definitely talking about me, but I’m one of many. I was under the assumption that he had kids but wasn’t actually married. I found out around the time that I started filming “Love & Hip Hop”. After I found out, I was still in shock because we were together for so long. I didn’t understand how he could take a vow as serious as marriage and take on a whole other relationship. It’s sad that now he’s taking all these shots saying I’m a liar and I’m pathetic, when he deceived me. It’s not fair to paint me out as a liar when he was leading a double life for many years. He’s never publicly come out with his wife until now because he’s ashamed of her. It’s no secret.”

She went on to claim that her upcoming book is not a tell-all about the DJ, but a story of her life.

“For me, I never spoke about it [the affair] because it was embarrassing as a woman. Of course, now I explain it in my book. I want to be clear: My book is not a tell-all. It’s just a book about my life and Envy is apart of my life.”

She also posted a public message to Envy’s wife on her Twitter page

Meanwhile Envy expressed via his Twitter page that nothing is going to come between him and his wife, not even Erica’s book.


It looks like this back and forth thing between Envy and Erica may go on for awhile.

It’s difficult to believe Erica’s claim that she didn’t know Envy was married considering how unapologetic and bold she came off during last week’s interview, but then again, it wouldn’t be the first time someone lied about their marital status.

What do you think?

  • I heard him on the radio when he spoke. I just feel bad for the wife. He probably didn’t say he had a wife instantly but Erica knew eventually and that should have been her exit. I don’t blame Erica because h*es will be h*es, it was him who made the vow. I never blame the woman, his loyalties should have been to his wife and his wife only. I hope they can come back from this bc seeing Erica all over the TV and constantly having this man’s name in her mouth is enough for any wife to say I’m done. And I’m sure that she isn’t the only one, which makes matters worse. She’s just the loudest! I could talk all day about this topic the bottom line is I feel for Gia!

      I agree…. 1000% “I never blame the woman, his loyalties should have been to his wife and his wife only” Envy made the vows. Also, she is NOT the only one….as you say she’s the LOUDEST bird chirping. lol We as women ALWAYS want to go after the women….check your peoples(your man/woman) who stepped out!!! Just because Envy PUBLICLY apologize…he’s a good dude now?? Gets praise ??? SMH Next time and there will be a NEXT time…..he will screen the next one better. Or he’s told the other he’s got to fall back until this ALL dies down…..LOL

        I agree he’s playing the blame game just like her. He was insecure still does not justify his cheating regardless if she is a BIRD or a school teacher! My concern would not be with her because at the end of the day he step outside the marriage and if that bird didn’t start chirping who knows he may have never said anything. He’s trying to make it seem like she is trying to break up his marriage because he came clean about his infidelities and apologized on the radio. No sweetie you did that she just help you do t the bird is going to make money off it. Now you sleep in the bed you made!

      • So true and so sad at the same damn time!

  • L-Boogie

    TIme to take a seat Ms. Mena.

  • iT3ach

    WHY…IS…SHE…NEWS?!?! I mean…I understand why MN has articles about her. Clearly, they’re reporting what WE are supporting/questioning/feening/idolizing/etc….but my question is WHY do we care so much about this chick? She just seems like a vindictive, manipulative, free-loading, talent-less…well I could go on but I won’t. I just don’t understand the fascination…

  • Tamz

    Erica, I think we all like the way you sound when you shut the f**k up. Please do so. ASAP.

  • Me

    She says that she didn’t think he was actually married. So she knew he had a woman, but she didn’t think he was officially married. I’d bet money when he stepped to her he didn’t say he was married. I’m sure she found out later but didn’t even care. She’s a POS and so is he. And if I was his wife I’d file for divorce and get tested for HIV every dayum week!

  • If Erica didn’t know that Envy was married initially and she wasn’t the type to sleep with a married man, then her first reaction when she was confronted about their affair would’ve been embarrassment and anger not justification. #liarliarpantsonfire

  • Tudbee

    Why do you guys have an article on her every week? This is why she won’t go away……cos you keep giving her an audience.

  • Shaybaby

    OMG can y’all give this pigeon a nest so she can have several seats in it? Thanks. SMDH

  • Sagittarius81

    Last week she made an excuse for sleeping with a married man, now she playing the victim here? Yeah, she’s a liar!

  • Aaliyah Noelle

    Erica such a bird . …. Really…

  • ieshapatterson

    lol i think we all know that she’s lying.

  • KJ23

    Envy and Erica are both wrong. He definitely shouldn’t have ever cheated, but for Erica to say she didn’t know he was married… Like, I live in the Midwest and don’t have the Power radio station and even I knew he was married and for how long. How do you live in the SAME CITY and not know? Besides, didn’t the last post about her have a quote saying that it was a tell-all, and bragging that she had dates and evidence about the affair. She even said something like about how the book was about the affair. That’s what it came off like, from her own words. I’m getting beyond annoyed with her, to concern. Can we please get an evaluation going for her?

    Don’t try to justify it now sweetie. Face it, you were both wrong. For future references, Close ya legs to married men (in my NeNe Leakes voice)

  • And this beyotch really expects us to believe she was in a full on relationship with a man (who’s a VERY public figure btw) and had no ideal he was married? Riiiight, and only to contradict herself by saying “everyone knows he’s ashamed of her.” Which one is it, you didn’t know she existed or you knew and knew he was hiding her? Throwing a little under hand shade at the wife is low.

    For Gia’s sake I hope she dumps his triflin azz and lives a nice quiet life. She’s obviously as dumb as these two because she’s going to be on a Real Houswives show. *eyeroll*

    • SunshineBlossom

      Damn you beat me to it lol, but I agree all the way. If she goes that hard on an imaginary relationship then she just needs to “pretend” to have a seat.

      • Robyn

        …And get her life lol!
