When it was first announced that Bow Wow and Erica Mena are engaged I, like many of you, was convinced that this was some sort of publicity stunt or cry for attention. Bow Wow, clearly aware of that widespread assumption, is doing all he can to prove that their love is real.

“I think what a lot of people don’t realize is me and Erica, we been knowing each other for years,” he said on “106 & Park.” “If you pay attention, she’s in my ‘Fresh Azimiz’ video. She’s the girl right in front of me. I been knowing her since then. And like I said, she was supposed to do ‘Lottery Ticket.’ So it was just…I don’t know. The Scorpio-Pisces connect thing and it just happened. Anytime, you meet somebody like that and the bond is right…you gotta go ahead and make it do what it do!”

“It’s far from a publicity stunt,” he continued. “I’ve never been the type of person to do anything for publicity. I don’t need it. I’m on TV everyday. How much more publicity do I need? I did this out of my heart, I did this out of love.”

Oh, and according to the rapper-turned-actor, it will not be long before they say “I do.”

“It don’t take long to do nothing. That’s what a wise man told me. It don’t take long to do nothing. It ain’t gon take no two, three, four, five years. We gon move at Godspeed. We been moving at Godspeed for this long and we’re going to continue to do that.”

According to WetPaint, Erica recently opened up to Be100! Radio about the proposal, which she says prompted an emotional response from her.

“It was at home, and it was just us. Real intimate, by the pool. yeah, it was just us. He did all the talking,” Erica said. “I couldn’t stop crying. When it happened, I didn’t even see the ring and I was blown away. So when I saw the ring, it was another ten minutes of non-stop crying.”

The controversial reality star adds that she never really envisioned herself as a wife.

“I didn’t think I’d see myself get married,” she admitted. “I always wanted that. I gave every relationship … my all, so to finally have something… a mutual thing…”

“This is someone I’ve known for so long. We were always in the same circle and I feel like he had to go through his situation, you know. It wasn’t the right time to for us to come around.”

Listen to Bow Wow’s interview below. Do you think this couple she bother trying to convince people that their love is real?

Bow Wow And Erica Mena Engaged

Erica Mena is something else… One minute, she’s talking about marrying Cyn Santana, the Chipotle-loving girlfriend we met on “Love and Hip Hop New York” and then the next, she’s kissing all up on Bow Wow on “106 & Park.” 

Since then Bow Wow and Erica have been seen in public together on several occasions. I didn’t think too much of it. But according to reports, the two have been dating for six months now.

That is until this weekend when she announced that she and Bow Wow are getting married.

Kind of unbelievable, right? But then again everything Erica does is unbelievable.

But there’s a ring and everything involved. See what she had to say during a red carpet interview with with Jack Thriller.

Jack Thriller: Is Bow Wow your boyfriend?

Erica: He’s actually my fiancé?

Jack: You getting married to Bow Wow?

Erica: Yup. 

Jack: It ain’t no where to go from there. 

Erica: I just gave you an exclusive muthafucka. Love you!

Well, there you have it.

Then Bow Wow confirmed the news on his Instagram account, posting a picture of Erica’s hand and ring alongside his.

I really have no words for this. It’ll just be interesting to see whether or not these two actually make it down the aisle. People are already calling this a publicity stunt. And in another Instagram flick, Bow Wow asked his followers what they thought of the engagement, which is an odd question. If you love somebody you probably don’t care what random strangers think about you all tying the knot. But then again, Bow Wow is a ham and is probably trying to get all types of shine from this.

Who knows…

What do you think about these two getting married? You think they’ll make it last forever? #KeithSweat

On Instagram’s #ManCrushMonday or #WomanCrushWednesday, there’s no feeling greater for some than to be able to show off a new boo! However, things get a little sticky when “bae” decides to call it quits after your very public deceleration of love.

In Hollywood, famous women are often spilling all the details about the new man they’re head-over-heels for, but ended up regretting it when their high-profile relationships ended. Here are a few examples of couples who called it quits after speaking publicly about their feelings for one another.

BET’s “106 & Park” To Go On Week-Long Hiatus After Blue Ivy Hair Comments

"106 & Park" To Go On Week-Long Hiatus

As someone so eloquently wrote on Karrueche’s Instagram page, when you rattle the BeyHive, you will get stung.

And after the inexcusable, completely tasteless comment one of the writers wrote on the teleprompter about Blue Ivy’s hair, the BeyHive erupted in full force. Most of the ire, unfortunately, was misdirected at Karrueche Tran but eventually, Stephen Hill stepped forward to apologize, on behalf of the network.

And now, word on the street is that “106 & Park” has been suspended for the rest of week.

Though some say the show was on a planned hiatus for this time frame, others are suggesting that the joke about Blue’s hair had something–if not everything to do with it.

If you’re a bit unsure what to think, let the show’s co-host Bow Wow ease your mind.

"106 & Park" To Go On Week-Long Hiatus

Well if that is indeed so, it couldn’t come at a better time, because they certainly need to regroup and get their ish together.

Plus, rumor has it that the producer of that particular show has been fired.

Meanwhile, poor Karrueche has been receiving death threats. Because many interpreted  the comments as her own. She took to Instagram to apologize on behalf of herself and tell everyone else to chill the eff out.

See what she had to say:

Past two days have been extremely draining.. As I geared up for a big day for myself – hosting a live show.. I never expected things to turn out this way.. I apologize to any and everyone who felt offended in any way by the comments made by BET executed through me.. I would never disrespect anyone’s child in any way and anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Beyoncé. My comments have been in complete shambles.. yes I am human too and yes I do make mistakes.. But all this negativity and death wishes are quite a lot.. Definitely a lesson learned from here forth.. Again, on behalf of MYSELF, my sincerest apologies ❤️ #BeyHive

Let’s NOT Talk About Sex: Can The Fellas Cool It With All The Kissing And Telling?

celebrities kissing and telling


Let’s talk about sex.

The men are always doing it: speaking on the performance of their past sexual partners, trading kinky tricks of the trade, putting compromising photos out there, dissing their exes–and it’s all done in public. I’ve never been one to kiss and tell, but it appears that it’s not a big deal for a lot of men, specifically, the men of hip-hop. With repeat offender Bow Wow casually dishing on the skills of all the famous women he has been with and Fredro Starr of ‘90s group Onyx ready to box with Charlamagne Tha God over comments the rapper made in the past about Brandy’s fellatio skills – men in music have always been more vocal about their past sexcapades.

But women aren’t necessarily innocent either. Karinne Steffans anyone? And yes, there is Love and Hip Hop, Basketball Wives, Hollywood Exes and Atlanta Exes. These shows are built solely on women trying to create lives outside of their ex-husbands and boyfriends while spilling tea about them here and there, but those women are hit with labels like “bitter,” “ratchet” or “industry h*e” when they open their mouths. Men, however, are championed for the same tired bars spit on wax and dirt revealed in interviews, and it’s time to give it up.

But the frat house mentality doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, no matter how many times you tell folks that it’s inappropriate:

When discussing who gives the best fellatio between Ciara and Angela Simmons while on “Wild N Out,” Bow Wow (who would rather be referred to as Shad Moss) had this to say:  “Well, at one time they both was my women correct? So if you put one and one together I mean, of course we must have been doing the do if they was my women, correct? Well, then I might as well go ‘head and keep it even, they both is mighty, mighty, mighty swell.”

Nick cannon chided Mr. Moss on that show, saying he would have “pleaded the fifth,” but then again, he isn’t necessarily the poster child for keeping personal business private. If it wasn’t for Mariah Carey telling him to pipe down about their business and who he used to roll around with in the sack, he probably would’ve been just like the thirsty fans in the crowd during that show dying to know more.

Look, there is no reason why we should know who you’ve shared a bed or traded spit with and whether or not they lived up to your expectations. It doesn’t help 50 Cent’s career if we know that his sexual experience with talk show host Chelsea Handler was similar to wrestling with a gator. Is it funny? Maybe. But in the grand scheme of things, does it help him sell records? Absolutely not. It’s all just putting someone else on blast, a person who trusted you not to run to the streets telling their business.

We didn’t need to know that Erykah Badu’s “box” had Common whipped (especially since that rumor was going around for years…), or that Eminem had sexual relations with Mariah (something she denies). These inappropriate comments by men way over 18 are immature and they seem like a way to gain publicity rather than harmless jokes at exes who have long forgotten about them.

What makes matters worse is that many of these stars are fathers (or father figures) to little girls who cannot be shielded by their daddy’s raunchy commentary. These same men probably wouldn’t want their own child’s personal business and sexual encounters put out there for laughs and attention.

Kissing and telling is so junior high school. Can we all just…grow up?

“It’s All In Fun!”: Angela Simmons Upset Over Bow Wow’s Oral Sex Comments, But He Claims He Was Just Joking…

Yesterday we told you about some comments Shad Moss, better known as Bow Wow, made as a guest on Nick Cannon’s MTV show, Wild N’ Out. When asked during a game of “Plead the Fif” who gave better oral sex between ex girlfriends Ciara and Angela Simmons, instead of pleading the fifth, he had this to say:

“Well, at one time they both was my women correct? So if you put one and one together I mean, of course we must have been doing the do if they was my women, correct? Well, then I might as well go ‘head and keep it even, they both is might, mighty, mighty swell.”

Most of our readers agreed that his comments were very inappropriate, and that men shouldn’t be out here talking about the skills of the women they’ve been with, let alone sex with an ex. But Bow Wow is now saying that he really didn’t say anything crazy about both women, and that it was all just a joke that people are taking way too seriously.

Bow Wow




Mr 106


He did admit on Instagram that his comments have Simmons a bit peeved, but he says that she knows better than anybody that he was just being goofy. And of course, he promoted the episode, which will air tonight on MTV.

“This will be a classic! Im all about the craft. Improving and giving you pure entertainment. Im putting all my skills on display tonight! THIS SHOW WILL GO DOWN AS THE BIGGEST!!! Enjoy the jokes its all in fun! If you take things serious.. Well this aint the show for you! PS.. Yes ANG wants to ring my neck but she knows me and that im goofy and this is all games. I brought my A game tonight!”

Again, pleading the fifth would have been the most respectful choice in this situation. What do you think about what he had to say about his comments on the show?

“Move The F*ck On” Bow Wow’s Ex Girlfriend Clapsback After He Clowns Her On Instagram

Never have we covered Bow Wow so much on this site. But the man-child’s name is hot in the streets this week…for all the wrong reasons.

Remember last week, we wrote about Bow Wow saying he was tired of making women famous? He also said that he wouldn’t put his girlfriends on Instagram until he knew they were serious about him. Well, the woman he was subliminally referencing, video vixen Ayisha Diaz, clapped back and we are here for it.

She posted this note on Instagram:

It’s more than time that someone called Bow Wow out on his nonsense. Their little relationship was so quick and kept so far under wraps that had he not posted that messy Instagram message, no one would have ever known that their situation ended. But being the kiss and tell type that he is, he posted on the gram knowing the blogs would pick it up.

And it is interesting that she is the first of Bow Wow’s string of girlfriends to speak out on his messiness, especially in light of him talking about both Ciara and Angela Simmons’ sex skills. I’m sure he might not take too kindly to the message or even receive it but I certainly wish he would learn to stop being so immature.

What do you think about Ayisha’s message to Bow Wow?

Shad Moss, AKA, Bow Wow, Kisses And Tells AGAIN; Speaks On Sex With Ciara And “Rev Run’s Daughter,” Angela Simmons

Bow Wow dropped his famous stage name and opted for his government name, Shad Moss, in order to be taken more seriously as a TV host (of 106 & Park), actor and businessman. But try as hard as he might, it’s what comes out of Bow Wow’s mouth that keeps people from taking him seriously. From saying that he makes his girlfriends famous, to kissing  and telling about his exes on national TV, Bow Weezy just can’t get it right. For example, he shared a little too much on Wild ‘N Out recently when asked about the fellatio skills of two of his most famous exes. During a game of “Plead the Fif,” comedian B Daht asked an inappropriate question that the rapper should have known to plead the fifth to. However, he decided to answer anyway:

B Daht: “Who gives the best head? Ciara or Rev Run’s daughter?”

Nick Cannon: “You might want to plead on that one!”

[Crowd chants]: “We wanna know”

Bow Wow: “Well, at one time they both was my women correct? So if you put one and one together I mean, of course we must have been doing the do if they was my women, correct? Well, then I might as well go ‘head and keep it even, they both is might, mighty, mighty swell.”

Cannon: “I would’ve pleaded the fifth…”

How ironic that Nick Cannon of all people is telling Bow Wow to plead the fifth, but I guess he learned his lesson after he divulged too much information about sex with Mariah

This isn’t the first time Bow Wow has talked a little too much about his famous exes. During an interview with The Breakfast Club back in 2012, he confirmed that he had slept with Ciara (as well Karrine Steffans, Dollicia Bryan and maybe even Kim Kardashian), but interesting enough, said at that time that he hadn’t had sexual relations with Simmons.  I don’t know if he thinks all this oversharing will help with his credibility as a rapper, but it definitely helps with his image as something of a sleazeball.

He Got A Big Ego: Bow Wow Says He’s Tired Of Making Women Famous

Earlier this year, Bow Wow publicly announced that he was in a relationship with video model Ayisha Diaz. The two each shouted each other out on Instagram, making each other their Man Crush Monday and Woman Crush Wednesday. We didn’t really report on it because…well, it’s Bow Wow. Try as he may, his core following is still comprised of pre-teens and adolescents.

But from the looks of things, it seems like his relationship with Diaz has gone sour. Yesterday, on Instagram the host of “106 & Park” posted a picture of himself with some woman…it could be Diaz. I’m not sure.

But it wasn’t so much the picture, it was the caption.

This is what he had to said:

Made too many women famous over the course of my lifetime just by being their boyfriend. Sex doesn’t secure she yours. Before i put u on IG share my spotlight w you share my red carpet time w you share my d*** w you i gotta know you SERIOUS! I don’t want no half ass’n. F*** the p**** i want your heart and mind. Until then…. I stay to myself until i know SHE ready! Wherever SHE is…….


Oh Shad. I’m so confused. What woman has he ever made famous? Even in his hey day Bow Wow didn’t wield that type of power. But more than that, why does this sudden revelation need an Instagram announcement? His followers and fans were applauding him for being “grown” about his but this attention seeking is quite the opposite.
