*As she prepares to exchange wedding vows with rapper-actor Shad Moss, Erica Mena has reportedly quit filming VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop New York.”
An insider told Bossip Tuesday that the drama she has had with her co-stars such as Chrissy Monroe, her ex-girlfriend Cyn Santana and off-camera issues she’s had with newcomer Jhonni Blaze prompted Mena to opt out of taping the reunion special.
“A lot of people cast this season were cast because of beef with her. Erica was pretty much sick of the deflecting and projecting off of other people’s negativity,” said the source. “She’s about to be somebody’s wife and she didn’t want to put herself in the type of space where that could happen…where she has to act negative.”
After filming her last scene earlier this year, the rest of the cast taped the reunion Tuesday while Mena instead flew to Florida with her son for his eighth birthday.
The source said viewers will definitely notice she is in fewer clips as the show progresses.
