So Shad Moss (formerly known as Bow Wow) and Erica Mena are still trying to convince us that “love” they have is real. We told you all last week about Shad and & Erica’s shocking engagement. The couple decided to tie the knot after only six months of secretly dating. The pairing of the unlikely pair has not only left us surprised but has us all wondering ‘is this the real deal or just another publicity stunt?’
Some have even suggested that the couple are intentionally shoving the relationship down our throats in an attempt to convince critics they’re for real. The couple did just that upon sharing several images of each on on social networking site, Instagram, over the weekend. Check out some of their attention seeking, hmmm we mean cute, photos they’ve shared below.
Shad Moss (formerly known as Bow Wow) says that it was love that urged him to propose to “Love and Hip Hop” reality star, Erica Mena, after only six months of dating.
In fact, he conducted an interview with BET to confirm the engagement and says it isn’t a publicity stunt despite speculation. He also adds that despite the short courtship, he’s actually known Erica since his 2005 single “Fresh Az I’m Iz” and video. Erica had been featured in the video.
“I did this out of love,” Shad revealed during a phone interview with “106 & Park” co-host Keshia Chante. “I’ve never been the type of person to do things for publicity,” he adds.
We’re not inclined to question anyone’s relationship but we’ve got some questions about this one. Apparently Shad Moss, formerly known as Bow Wow, is engaged to reality TV personality Erica Mena.
For the last few weeks, the rumor mill has been buzzing that the ’106 & Park’ host and rapper was now dating the “Love and Hip Hop” reality star since her co-hosting gig a few months ago.
Although the couple never actually confirmed the status of their relationship, or whatever it was they were involved in, its come to our surprise that the two are now engaged.
Hold on to your horses. VH1′s “lesbian duo” and “Love and Hip Hop: New York” stars, Erica Mena and Cyn Santana, may be getting their very own reality series.
But it gets better. As if we’re suppose to be convinced they’re really a couple, rumor has it, the ladies are now engaged following Mena’s proposal on the show’s pre-taped reunion special.
The spin-off (if anyone’s interested in watching) is said to document the couple’s trials and tribulations leading up to their wedding.
If you tuned in to this season’s drama filled LHHNY, then you’d know, the two took up a lot of air time trying to convince us they’re really a couple. In fact, they may have been trying to convince themselves. While Erica tried to convince herself she was over her ex-boyfriend and manager Rich Dollaz, Cyn’s lack luster attempt of pretending to be hurt was quite painful to watch. Perhaps the best part of the entire love triangle was Rich Dollaz’ emotional outbursts.
Apparently someone has been busy! Erica Mena, singer/model and star on LHHNY, posted a few pics earlier today and it seems she is sporting a pregnancy bump. Is she and rumored boyfriend (maybe fiance) Rich Dollaz expecting? While hosting a party last night, at Bar 7, Mena decided to show off her “pregnancy bump” in a tight, glittery, green dress. While it seems that the singer is pregnant in the above photo, the following pictures are somewhat questionable.
Rich Dollaz is engaged to ‘Love and Hip Hop’ co-star Erica Mena. Although Erica was introduced on season 2 of the hit reality show as the budding artist, she is now a fiancee to singer Olivia’s manager Rich Dollaz.
The two have denied dating in the past year although being spotted together on many occasions but it was Thursday night’s premiere party that they not only confirmed they’re together but they plan on getting married. And guess what? She doesn’t have a ring just yet. Hmmm….okay a proposal with no ring. Guess she’s not the first but that’s just tacky. But it get’s better. After confirming to multiple media outlets last night Rich is now denying he’s even engaged! Here’s what he told Global Grind.
“No, I’m not! I’m not engaged. Rich Dollaz is not engaged.

I had the privilege of running into model Erica Mena during cast mate Yandy Smith’s ‘Life, Love, Soul’ movie premiere after party over the weekend. The event was held at La Pomme in New York City and it was very well attended by Smith’s close friends and family. Although, a very pregnant, Yandy Smith was not in attendance it was a pleasant surprise to spot Erica in the crowd.
Honestly guys, I was a little hesitant. I’ve heard about Erica’s erratic behavior as well as seen it, like much of you, played out on hit reality show, ‘Love & Hip Hop’. But to my surprise, she was quite sweet and inviting and didn’t hesitate to take a few photos while she hung with friends and seemed visibly happy and fun. She also looked really cute. I’m almost mad at myself for not getting a full photo of what she was wearing! It was crowded, busy with loud music blasting out the speakers and I got caught in the moment, sorry!
Model and actress, Erica Mena, is lashing out against her portrayal on VH1′s hit reality show, ‘Love & Hip Hop’. In her debut to the show, Monday night, the video vixen initiated a brutal brawl with cast mate and fellow model Kimbella. debut. She now says, she regrets the fight with Kimbella and wanted Vh1 to cut the scene from the show.
In a statement to TMZ she says, “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 she should have thought about that before initiating the argument in the first place.

Whose Erica Mena? Crazy that’s what!
Erica Mena may have just gotten her ticket to fame. In the latest episode of VH1′s ‘Love & Hip Hop’, we’re introduced to the fiesty model who gets into a fight with underdog and fellow model, Kimbella.
But there’s much more we don’t know about her. Apparently, Erica has a reputation and it’s not nice. This isn’t the first time the model has lost her cool, resulting in a violent outburst.
But first, here’s some background information. Erica began modeling at 14, she’s done fashion campaigns for Roc-A-Wear, Tommy Hilfiger, and has modeled for various high-end designers during New York Fashion Week.
She joined the show in hopes of re-branding herself and jump starting her music career. She was also featured on another hit reality show, ‘Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami’, which documented her assisting with the launch of the Kardashians’ clothing boutique Dash. But if you’re a fan of the show, you may also remember Erica as the store worker who was ultimately fired for not pulling her weight.
Most recently Erica has been featured in music videos for rapper 50 Cent, Chris Brown and, of course, Fabolous.
It’s safe to say, this girl is drama! Don’t believe she’s crazy? Watch below.
