Erica Mena can’t be a wife to Bow Wow, aka Shad Moss, and be on Love and Hip Hop at the same time, so she made a decision to quit reality TV.
Now Mena wants to only focus on her pending marriage to the 106 & Park host. During a recent interview, she opened up about why she decided to quit reality TV.
“No. It’s time to be a wife,” Erica Mena said. “It’s time to be the woman my man needs. My man don’t need a girl that’s on TV, my man needs a girl by his side. That’s really what it’s about right now for me. It’s kind of bittersweet, this whole process, especially filming this last season. Even though there’s still the Erica Mena crazy stuff going on, this really is the best season ever for me… I’ve had a good run. I’m bowing out gracefully, on my own terms. Plants need to be repotted every once in a while, and I need to repot myself. Love & Hip-Hop has opened doors for me, it’s even brought me to this position where I was actually able to host 106, and get to that level with Shad. I think it’s done everything it was supposed to do for me. Now it’s time to let another Erica Mena in the door.”
Erica Mena also says she wants to keep Bow Wow off reality TV. She made it clear that her fiance will be on Love and Hip Hop.
