'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.

Thank you for being an embarrassment to all woman and giving us a bad name just because you want/need attention. Stop being the slut in music videos for men who degrade you. You are not a "video vixen" (thats a nice name for a slutty woman who degrades herself for the approval of a famous man) Get a real job and stop making women look cheap!!!

I think Erica damage herself. She came off as a very jealous, evious and hateful woman. To attack Kimberly for her progessive working ethics is wrong. Kimverly is beautiful, warm and good hearted. For them to insult women like this as whores and sluts does a dis-service to all women. Women got to stop calling other women whores and slut because they are beautiful and look better than you. The young women of today has to stop being jealous of one another. This is crazy. The men that cause this problem among women are walking around as thou they have something to be proud of. They created this in their music and behavior. Having children out of wedlock and sleeping from one women to the next. And not taking care of their children. What Rapper today take care of their children and married to the mother of their children and don't abuse women on their records. Kimberly should be applaud. She took lemons and made lemonade. Kimberly be strong you earned everything you work for. Women that hit you and call you names are just jealous. Don't give up keep acieving.

This are women working to achieve their golds through media. People should stop saying negative things about them. The baseball wives show has alot of fighting and I'm better than you being displayed. And these are all white women. So it's not black or white women that have a jealousy problem it's women. The baseball wives have eating disorder just to get the next baseball player and some get butt inplants. So what Erica did was wrong to insult a woman and a mother in the manner she did. What I see is going on is that when the women call another woman a slut or whore she thinks that make her better. When it doesn't it just say she's jealous. She wish she was living the other woman life. What they fail to realize the men don't look at them no better. None of the women on these shows are married and if they are thier husband are cheaters. So you're dealing with average people with money are sometime worse. It also show's money don't make you happy. The Mob's wives they have money and fight like cats and dogs. So money don't give you inteligent or class for that matter.

Erica did come of like she forgot her meds! All the talk about her being superior was just sad. She tried to make Kim look bad and it ended looking bad herself. I bet she wish she cud get a do-over.

Erica started all of it , and if she was so worried about her career she wouldn't have behaved as she did. Kimbella had the right to attack her like she did. Erica has problems !
