Still swingin' after all these years
Erica Mena might be angling her way back into the Love & Hip Hop universe. The one-time star of LHHNY got into a fight in public with current cast member of the Hollywood spin-off Zell Swag and the whole thing was captured on video.
In the clip, which was uploaded to the internet via The Shade Room, Mena can be seen squaring up to Zell in a club. While it’s unclear what started the fight or what the pair are saying, one thing is very clear: they were dangerously close to coming to blows.
Mena stepped away from Love & Hip-Hop — which she called #MenaMondays — after a noteworthy appearance on the show saying that the on-screen drama was just too much for her to handle. It’s clear that she hasn’t lost any of her edge in her time off-screen. She definitely has held on to the no nonsense attitude that made her famous. And who knows? If things have reached the point where Mena is confronting Zell publicly, it might mean that we’re looking at a return to (or at least an arc on) an upcoming season of the franchise.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen Erica put paws on someone since she left the show. Last month, she got into a scrap outside of a club when a big dude got a little too handsy with her.
The clip starts with Mena trying to be the voice of reason, hoping to leave the situation without starting a fight (for once).
“You’re too aggressive, you need to calm down,” she told the man.
However, he wasn’t good with just letting it go. A previous Hip Hop My Way article reported on the incident:
“He passes by her and appears to shove her slightly although he says, “Don’t touch me.” She replies, “Alright then, back the f**k up.” He did eventually back up and took his hands off of her, but his little dig to her made her lash out.
The man says, “This is what I’m talking about with dumb a*s f**king hoes…” There’s hardly a woman alive who would let that go without some kind of clap back, but Erica did more than that; she gave him a punch back.
It’s hard to see where her fists of fury landed, but she definitely tried to get him in the face. The ladies filming are obviously on her side as their fight devolves into more verbal punches.”
The model may have dated Bow Wow and starred in the Netflix series Master Of None since her days as part of the unkillable VH1 series, but it’s clear that she has no rust on the parts of her that made her a star on the reality show.
Watch The Fight
Watch the video up top. What do you think? How did Erica and Zell end up crossing paths? Is this a set-up from the show or did they come across one another naturally? And what could they be beefing about? Do you expect to see Mena in the next season of LHHH? Will she make a return to her own branch of the LHH tree? These shows don’t need more drama, but they aren’t exactly going to turn Mena down.
