'Love & Hip Hop' Star

VH1 Derailed My Career

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


0_k1z0qw8h_1_aijry6al
"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.

This Erica chick, she is not a very nice person. Granted I don't care for Kimbella either.. they are worse than the
Kardashian's.At least they try to pretend they have class.
These two, street women, both of them. Erica clearly came for a fight, and Yandy, likes to start trouble.. why would you even put these two together when she clearly knew that
Erica had a grudge against Kimbella..(I hate that name) Love and Hip Hop, you need to show some real people, not these tramps, no offense Krissy, not talking about you.
