You and I, and oh yeah, Erica Mena, all know that the reality TV personality isn’t the most liked woman on television. She used to be on Kourtney & Kim Take Miami and was fired from working at their Dash store on the show because of her penchant for cussing folks out and showing up late. If that wasn’t enough, she found her way on to LHHNY because she scrapped with Kimbella for absolutely no reason. She’s known for doing things for attention. But in an interview with VIBE she was asked if her current relationship, with a woman by the name of Cyn Santana, is strictly for attention, and what her family thinks about the new lady love in her life. Here’s what she had to say:

If She’s Dating A Woman For Attention:

“I think it’s funny because that’s the moment you take the time to put into perspective how crucial, incredible and foolish society is. I don’t think it’s accepted naturally to be bisexual, especially as a woman. So I expect that, but I also have the time to laugh at it because it is what it is. It makes me laugh because whether they believe it or not this is what you have to accept, this is what is going to be on your TV every Monday night. I think what people have to just naturally give me the respect for is the fact that me being a woman and no matter what I’ve done, fault to mistakes or right to wrong, that I’m able to step out and be like, ‘This is who I am and this is who I love to be with. This is what it is, this is my life. I’m on a reality show so you get what you get.’”

Her Family’s Response To Her Love Life:

“[Cyn and I] actually recently made our mothers meet and it was a liberating moment because I really don’t care what the world thinks. I hope people don’t take that the wrong way but I don’t care what the world thinks, but my family… They’re just like if this is what you makes you happy, this is what you need, this is what you want, this is what keeps you content, if this is what has you finally at peace, they’re all for it.”

How She Will Explain Her Relationship To Her Son…

“Cyn’s actually met my son and I’m the youngest of eight girls, so naturally he has to deal with a lot of women in his life. I haven’t really sat down with him to kind of say this is mommy’s girlfriend because we haven’t taken that step on full on commitment. But when it comes time to, I think King will understand, especially because of how hard I really do go for him. I give him the world and I shelter him so much that there is going to be a time where I’ll have to sit down with him and relate it to him. At the end of the day, life and the way things are nowadays, you have to mentally prepare your kids. Whether I’m with a woman or not, walking down the street with my son, he’s going to see a man and a man holding hands, so eventually I have to give him that conversation. It’s kind of like the birds and the bees, it’s part of life. It’s just a time and a place and until I’m certain that me and her are taking the next step, I will have that conversation. But until then, I think he knows that there’s definitely love and mommy’s changed. So I think he feels that I don’t have to front no more.”

She definitely seems to be enamored with Ms. Santana, but are you believing it? She knows she loves her some Rich Dollaz…

    I’m not surprised she like Kit Kats.

    I have no idea who Erica is but she’s really pretty.

    • Tee Elyse

      She is a gorgeous girl, but as soon as she opens her mouth, all downhill from there! Her horrible attitude makes her ugly!

        Oh my, sorry to hear that. But, unfortunately that’s what reality stars get paid for I guess. Ratchet gets you famous these days.

    This girl seems lost to me. She needs a prayer or five.
