'Love & Hip Hop' Star

VH1 Derailed My Career

12/27/2011 5:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Love & Hip Hop" star Erica Mena tells TMZ, the vicious, glass-smashing, hair-pulling cat fight between her and Kimbella Vanderhee has torpedoed her modeling career -- and it's all VH1's fault.

In case you missed this week's episode, Kimbella throws a champagne glass at Erica -- after Erica accuses her of cheapening the video vixen industry by agreeing to work for a pittance. Erica responds by grabbing Kimbella's hair and ... just watch the clip.

But the 24-year-old tells us, she was completely misrepresented in the episode -- blaming show editors for unfairly portraying her as the bad guy ... and Kimbella as an angel.

Erica tells us, "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." Clearly, VH1 refused.

Calls to the network have not been returned.

Really... skank on skank violence needs a spokesman like Sally Struthers for kid hunger.

No ho, your lack of talent and good looks killed your career, being on VH1 was just the last death throws of that career.

Time to start selling that ass on the corner.

"career" should be in parenthesis because being a skank ass whore b1tch isn't really a "career" -- its not like she was going to be a rocket scientist or anything.

It was obvious that VH1 cut and diced that scene to death. The way they showed it the girl verbally attacked Kimbella for no reason at all. I see now that Kimbella was brought in to crank things up a notch and she is doing just that...and probably for little money.

As a black educated female, this is just totally embarrassing to keep witnessing these types of behavior from black women. Our ancestors did not die & fight for our freedom for you all to act like fools on national tv. This is shameful. It's not the way we all carry ourselves and it's not entertaining to watch either. All of these women are mothers, they should have their children taken away until they learn how to act like women. Unbelievable

Didn't know who she was before the clip, still don't care to know her. The age of the Supermodel is over, she'll just have to bang some rappers and write a tell-all book like the rest of the mud ducks.

No field of music moves through artists as fast as rap and hip hop. She probably wouldn't have had any more of a career anyway.

I saw this episode and it's very clear she came with animosity. She now sees herself from an outside prospective and realizes it's not pretty.
