If you haven’t heard of the name Erica Mena from the new season of Vh1 “Love & Hip Hop” then well.. we actually don’t blame you. The Latina star of the show, who’s role is to be in a relationship with manager Rich Dollaz whilst trying to jump start a music career has taken a liking to the cameras and does not pass up an opportunity to show off how “ratchet” she can get. If you tune in, you’ll either see Erica in another cast members face like singer Olivia about the failure of their career, or you’ll see her fighting with her boyfriend/manager Rich Dollaz and fighting at events. Well Erica has seemed to really be upsetting women across the country with her bad representation of Latina single mothers, and Lady Blogga over at StupidDope.com aired out her opinion in this “Open Letter To Erica Mena”. Read the letter in its entirety after the jump, and let us know what you think about the situation.
“Dear Erica. Everybody has a hustle. Nobody has the right to knock anybody’s hustle but, your efforts are beyond ridiculous. I’m going to need you to have a stadium of seats and read this.
As a woman, I am embarrassed that you are a representation of a Latina in this industry. While you are determined to find a place in the spotlight, you need to at least have some kind of talent to get you there. Wasted talent is one thing but no talent is a complete waste of time. You may want to sit back with a pen and pad to take notes and watch Somaya Reece work. Her ability to stay true and humble is an exception to the rule. Her boss attitude will hopefully rub off and instead of starring in reality show cat fights, you could be seen doing things of substance. You and women of your kind make it hard for real, talented women to get ahead. Conducting business professionally is a must but you go about doing things like a certified ratchet. Chaos and mayhem seem to follow you wherever you go and you seem proud… That’s unfortunate.
Is that your talent, chaos & mayhem? Didn’t you learn anything when Kourtney fired you from DASH Miami a few years ago?
You share a lot of commonalities with many women. One of them being of single mother status. You are a significant fixture in your son’s life. If and when he decides to Google his allegedly famous mother, rumors of drug abuse, chants of “I don’t give a fuck”, and reels of cat fights should not be what he sees. That alone should deter you from behaving badly.
I hope I didn’t over-step my boundaries and upset you. I know you don’t respond to people talking to or about you. I wouldn’t want you to show up to one of my events beefin’ or on my doorstep with donuts at 6am. Please don’t try any such tactics. I am heavily guarded by one of Groundwork Enterprises’ finest and they handle business accordingly. Keep pissing people off and you may need to render their services.
I look forward to seeing what talent you develop and how you continue to suck the seconds out of 15 minutes of RealityTV fame.”
