The phrase ratchet reality star almost sounds repetitious since there are few, if any, individuals on reality TV with redeeming qualities But these stars here are some of the most notorious on the tube, and quite honestly, the worst 15-minute celebs we’ve seen in the past few years.
To put it simply, Stevie J is scum and think he’s God. Sorry to break it to you Stevie J, but you’re just ratchet. He has no respect for women and makes everything a joke (remember his strip club threats?) I feel sorry for Mimi and Joseline. They have a problem on their hands forever.

True Love Is Verifying Your Boo On Twitter, And Other Random Things We Learned From The “Love And Hip Hop” Reunion Part II
And it’s finally over! The season of Love and Hip Hop in New York ended yesterday after airing their final reunion episode, and boy did the absolute most happen. Joe Budden got punched in the back of the head by Consequence, Erica admitted to having sexual relations with Tiffany, Yandy opened up about the currently incarcerated Mendeecees, and basically, the ratch came out of pretty much everybody. Here’s a recap of the mess that we couldn’t help but be confused by last night.
Can you believe everything you read in the tabloids? Of course not. But how do you deny things people see in black and white and color on the TV set — or on your Twitter page? That’s what these stars have done, claiming what most people see as bad behavior is really just a misrepresentation. But are they fakin’ the front to save face? Or do we have it twisted sometimes? You be the judge.
“My whole image in my career is now affected by this. I wanted them to pull this clip because I don’t want to show this side of me.”
Maybe Erica and I saw two different shows. She tried to have the Kimbella fight scene pulled from the show. Maybe she forgot that this video of her whoopin’ on her baby daddy in the street was already circling the web. Let’s not even get on her antics now that she’s a real cast member.
If you’re currently suffering from Monday blues, we have just the thing to turn that frown upside down (or at least provide you with a little giggle). During the current season of Love & Hip Hop, we witnessed vixen Erica Mena try her hand at a career in music. While she didn’t appear to have any real musical abilities, she somehow managed to snag a a track that was halfway listenable, “Where Do I Go From Here.” When her relationship with manager and boyfriend Rich Dollaz began to go awry, Rich gave the song to his other artist and best friend Olivia, who killed it and took the track to the number 8 spot on the iTunes R&B charts. Erica doesn’t seem to have allowed Liv showing her up to be a deterrence though, the aspiring singer recently released a music video to accompany the song, showing the world that she still intends to pursue music.
In the rather dramatic music video, Erica spends the majority of the time at a desk reading a letter from an estranged lover, having an over-the-top break down in a tub and in a shower. While the bathtub scene sounds rather familiar, as many recording artists have taken this route in their videos, something about Erica’s video seems awkward and plain wrong. She appears to be overacting to the point where you’ll find yourself asking, “Is this a spoof?” Let’s just hope this video isn’t a true reflection of her acting skills, as she’s been tweeting about a television series that she has been working on for the past couple of months.
I won’t spoil it for you, though.

Show Em How It’s Done: Olivia’s Version of ‘Where Do I Go From Here’ Climbs to No. 10 on iTunes Charts
During this week’s episode of Love & Hip Hop, I nearly kealed over when Erica Mena went strutting into the studio, seemingly ready to put her seductive charm on her sometimes-maybe boyfriend Rich Dollaz, only to witness Olivia murdering her beloved “Where Do I Go From Here” track. A clearly distraught Erica stormed out of the studio in tears after going completely off on Rich for giving her track away.
While many felt that Erica’s version on the song was fairly decent for a person who doesn’t really have much talent when it comes to singing, Olivia’s amazing vocals took the beautifully written song to a whole new level. According to the Singers Room, Olivia’s rendition of the ballad has already reached the number ten spot on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts.
Now it’s certainly not uncommon in the music industry for one song to be passed through the hands of multiple artists. But considering the nature of how it all went down and how upset Erica was over Liv snagging her track, I think it’s safe to say that she is somewhere seething. The model/video vixen recently posted a message to her Instagram page, discussing the upcoming HBO series, Las Mechanicas that she’s currently filming for and of course to throw shade at Olivia.
“On Set! From Reality To A TV Series! Non scripted to Scripted! They had to give my song away to bring back the dead! YET I’m STILL where they can never be! Still! NOW and Always,” she wrote.
Olivia, however, had some shade of her own to throw.
“Y’all can go get the record on iTunes RIGHT NOW. Olivia ‘where do I go’ tell
@richdollaz y’all glad he smartened up,” she tweeted.
Check out Liv’s version below. Do you think Rich was wrong for handling things the way that he did?

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?
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.

Erica Mena Justifies Her Affair With Married Radio Host DJ Envy By Saying, ‘He Wasn’t A Proud Married Man’
Since her 2012 debut on VH1′s “Love & Hip Hop”, the media world has been buzzing with gossip bits that Erica Mena had been engaged in an affair with very married Power 105.1 Breakfast Club host, DJ Envy. The troubled reality star unremorsefully confirmed the affair and admitted to only having ended it because of her relationship with co-star Rich Dollaz in an interview with I Am Super Gorge.
“I just wanna clear something up. I know that people have been calling me a homewrecker or whatever. I’m just gonna keep it real simple and say this, you can’t break a home that’s already broken. So, I mean at the end of the day, whatever happened with him and his marriage definitely has nothing to do with me… He’s been married for 18 years. He never once acted married until he found out that I was engaged. He definitely wasn’t a proud married man.”
She went on to say that anyone who’s interested in learning the dirty details of her affair with Envy can get the scoop in her new tell-all book, Underneath It All, which is scheduled to be released in April.
“I definitely think in time people will kind of get a better understanding of where I’m coming from because my book will be explaining it all. It drops in April. So you guys get to get the full-on story about me and this whole DJ Envy situation. [In the book] I give actual dates and how everything went about. You guys will also get the scoop on the fact that I kind of left that situation alone because I wanted to be with Rich.”
A delusional Erica took to her Twitter page this morning to offer fans the opportunity to select the cover art of her tell-all book.
“Help Pick The Cover To My New Book
#UnderneathITAll By Me Coming This April ! @lffpublishing @michelefletcher VOTE!” she tweeted.
During the interview, she also danced around questions regarding her “pregnancy”, seemingly using the rumor as a ploy for reunion show ratings.
“Right before the reunion airs, I’ll tell you guys the full honest truth.I would rather keep people in suspense a little bit more, but you guys will be surprised at the final answer. I’m real excited.”
Considering that she was photographed throwing back a bottle of Patron on the same night that those alleged pregnancy photos surfaced, I doubt she’s pregnant. At least I hope she’s not.
You can listen to Erica’s full interview on the next page. Thoughts?
Just yesterday, we reported that
ratchet reality television star, Erica Mena “announced her pregnancy” via the Instagram pages of a few of her pals, when they posted photos of her holding what appeared to be a protruding baby bump. Eyebrows raised as this “announcement” came only days after video footage surfaced of Erica engaged in a gritty catfight in a New York City nail salon. Erica’s pregnancy also appeared a bit sketchy, as her current boyfriend Rich Dollaz told the YBF that he was completely unaware that Mena was with child and that they would have to discuss it once he got back from Houston.
Now, things seem to be going in a quite peculiar direction. The “Love & Hip Hop” star sent out a pretty conflicting tweet once she was sure that her “baby bump” photos had circulated.
“LMFAO! Assume and you make an A$$ out of yourself!” she tweeted.
Oh, because releasing photos of yourself holding your protruding belly at the same time that your friends begin referring to themselves as “auntie” isn’t implicative that you’re expecting a child. To make matters worse, photos of Erica guzzling down a bottle of Patron (posted above) on the same night that she announced her pregnancy have also surfaced. In addition to the photographs of her downing a bottle of liquor, her stomach appears rather flat in photographs that were taken on Saturday at Stadium nightclub.
It’s wild to think that a woman her age would fake a pregnancy, but it’s not as if she hasn’t displayed obvious signs of having poor judgement in the past. Mena has not directly confirmed or denied being pregnant, but it seems pretty apparent that she is not expecting. We can’t say for sure what on earth would posses her to fake her pregnancy, but considering how much she loves attention, the thought of this all being a sick publicity stunt doesn’t seem far fetched. Thirst knows no limits.
Hit the next page to see the flat-stomach photos of Erica from Saturday. What do you think of all of this? Is she or isn’t she?
Well, isn’t this surprising and pretty weird.
Love & Hip Hop: NY star Erica Mena was in D.C. Friday night for a hosting gig at Bar 7. She wore a very pretty green dress that showed off her body, including what appears to be a pregnancy bump. The above Instagram picture was captioned with her saying, “Any questions?”
Actually, boo, we do have some questions and concerns.
This is the same Erica Mena who was caught getting into a huge catfight last week at a nail salon. It is pretty clear in these pictures that she and her friends are focusing our attention towards her belly which means she new she was with child whilst engaging in yet another embarrassing moment of her “losing her cool.”
This will make the second child for Erica. She has a son from a previous relationship and if you watch the show, her parenting skills have often come into question.
But here’s the really odd part: According to The YBF, her manager and onscreen boyfriend Rich Dollaz seemed to know nothing about it. When they got in touch with him about it, Rich replied:
“I don’t know about all the pregnancy rumors. Erica was posting pics on IG from Bar 7 in DC and I’m in Houston. So I guess a convo is def in order when we are back in NY.”
He also added that their on again-off again relationship is “mostly off these days.”
Now, it certainly isn’t unheard of that a relationship would be forged simply for show purposes; however, if they’ve spent any intimate time together over the past few months, there’s a chance he could be the father of this child.
So far, this sounds quite messy but seeing as though Erica appears to live for drama, this is right up her alley.
Since the show is still filming, there’s a strong possibility that we’ll see this whole pregnancy situation unfold right on the show.
Oh Love & Hip Hop, how you do go on…
