“Love & Hip Hop” star Erica Mena has stepped up to confirm New York radio station Power 105.1’s DJ Envy‘s claims of cheating on his wife with a mystery woman.
According to Mena, she hooked up with Envy in the past but had no idea he was married.
In an exclusive talk with Vixen, Mena responds, “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.” (VIBE Vixen)
She also denied claims of being a liar and said her “Love & Hip Hop” love interest Rich Dollaz has known about their former fling for a while.
“It’s sad that now he’s taking all these shots saying I’m a liar and I’m pathetic, when he deceived me,” she continues. “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.” While Envy is attempting to salvage his broken marriage, Erica has been dating her manager Rich Dollaz. His thoughts on this? “He’s known about this for awhile because I told him. He isn’t phased by this.” (VIBE Vixen)
Envy broke the news of his affair live on-air this week despite being with his wife for nearly 20 years.
“A couple of months ago, I called my wife on air and asked her for forgiveness. I told her I needed to 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 need somebody that’s smarter than me. It made me insecure.” (Bossip)
He also blamed insecurity issues for fueling the decision to cheat.
“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. … 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.'” (Bossip)
