After her knock-down-drag-out fight with fellow Love & Hip Hop cast mate Kimbella, newcomer Erica Mena claims that VH1’s editing team ruined her career. According to the 24-year-old video model, the network unfairly made her look like the bad guy during the altercation.

She told TMZ, “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.”

Now, call me crazy, but editors can only work with what you give them. So if Erica is looking to blame anyone for her unladylike behavior it should be herself. But did the folks over a VH1 unfairly posit her as “the bad girl” to amp up the drama factor? Perhaps.

At the end of the day, however, we are responsible for our own actions. If Erica and Kimbella wouldn’t have been acting like lunitics–throwing glass and pulling each other’s hair–neither one would be wondering how their cat fight affected their career.

But maybe it’s just me.

What do you think? Is VH1 to blame for ruining Erica’s career?

    The same negative atitude Erica displayed on Love & Hip Hop is what got her fired by Khloe Kardashian on Kourtney and Khloe in Miami. She seems to be just bad news.

    I think Erica drew the attention to herself. If she had not been openly disrespectful towards Kimbella in the very few first words that came out of her mouth, it would not have happened. She came across with an attitude tha was looking for trouble and she got what she was looking for. She (Erica) was rude the entire conversation. I think she wanted that time to shine on camera but wasnt thinking about the bigger picture, her so called career that she is boohooing about now. For someone to have as much bark as she did, she sure turned out to be a little kitten. Then she had the nerve to play victim and call the cops after she started the whole thing, running her disrespectful mouth. She must be bipolar and is off her meds. Who is she. Shes a nobody. I never heard of her until this incident. Congrats Erica, I guess you finally got what you wanted.

    Poor Erica, she is only human like the rest of us facing some of the same problems we face everyday. But this is part of being face you are always in the spot light and anything you do can cost you your job. I can’t wait to see what more she has in store on VH1’s shows Love and Hip-Hop. I know she’s on the next episode but I hope she stays. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen even though I won’t be home I’m going to watch it on my phone LIVE since I have the Sling adapter. The Sling adapter allows me to watch LIVE TV. It is really great! As a customer and employee with DISH I highly recommend it to everyone that is always on the go or even the bus it is worth it and free as of right now!
