Given her various fights on Love & Hip Hop, it’s no secret that Erica Mena‘s personality is an acquired taste. However, a slick mouth can’t get in the way of obvious sex appeal. That’s why Erica was right when she tells her detractors on the show that no matter what they may think of her singing, she’s getting to the money all the same.
Enter her recent trip to Panama to shoot a 2014 calendar.
Based on the many, many pictures Erica snapped during her trip for the shoot, Ms. Mena had quite the time. She scored local press, saw the sights, met members of the area — all while looking so pretty! Please read “so pretty” in Kimbella‘s voice. Please.
And naturally, Erica brought her boo, Cyn Santana, along for the shoot. Enjoy the pictures, especially those that offer you a preview of Erica’s hot new calendar.
On tonight’s episode of Love & Hip Hop, Saigon steps up and admits that he was dead wrong to come at Erica Jean and criticize her parenting. That particuar fight turned especially nasty, and we asked him to elaborate a little bit on how he feels seeing that fight play out. “If my mother was alive, and she seen me talk to the mother of my child like that, she would smack earth, wind, fire and ice outta me,” he tells us. We also wanted to know how Saigon could run to Peter Gunz so often for advice knowing that Peter’s own personal life is so messy. Read on for Saigon’s answers to those questions as well as his reaction to his paternity test, in our interview below. Read more…
On the season premiere of Mob Wives: New Blood, we met Natalie Guercio, who proved that she is one to watch this season for many reasons. (The first being that she’s gorgeous and we can’t take our eyes off of her, but also, she’s feisty and not afraid of ANYone.) Drita thought something was a little off about Natalie after meeting her at a boozy lunch, and now Natalie wants her to answer for her comments. In this sneak peek, Renee‘s orchestrated a lunch between the two, but before Drita shows up, Natalie starts mouthing off about her. “Natalie needs to calm the f— down and change her tone because Drita’s not the chick that she wants to go there with,” Renee comments.

In case you couldn’t have guessed it from the place settings they hurled at one another’s head last week, Peter Gunz and Erica Mena don’t like each other. The two Love & Hip Hop stars share a deep dislike for one another despite their common bond with Rich Dollaz. We asked Peter recently what three words he’d use to describe Erica and his choices were not very kind. Later, he told us that he never wanted anything to do with her, and she’s just using him to get screen time on “The Peter Gunz Show.” Read more about Peter’s thoughts on Erica below!

The weather outside is frightful today, but these photos are so delightful! We got to spend some time with three of the women from Mob Wives: New Blood this week, and to get in the Christmas spirit we shot some gorgeous holiday photos with them. (I really, truly tried to get them to wear ugly holiday sweaters but, to quote the wonderful Drita D’Avanzo, “Oh, you want me to look like a jerk-off?” Point taken, Drita.)
In the accompanying gallery, check out Renee, Drita and Alicia as they get in the Christmas spirit and make a group of very sexy Santas.

For anyone who’s wondered why Richard Duncan almost exclusively goes by the nickname “O’S**t,” look no further than his power to clear the room. On Monday’s episode of Black Ink Crew, we learn what kind of evil tactic O’S**t will employ if his friends are talking about a destination wedding his bail bondsman won’t let him attend.
The South Philly-bred Natalie Guercio certainly made her presence felt on the season premiere of Mob Wives: New Blood. As we found out last night, her family has owned and operated the Carto Funeral Home, known as the funeral home of choice for area men of that “lifestyle.” Natalie now runs the family business, but she also has her sights set on other things.
And once you take a look at this gallery, you’ll know Natalie likes to get her party on. She’s also very, very good to her new fans. Here’s a look at Natalie on the scene, with her kin, and with her growing fan base. Welcome to the fold, pretty party girl. We appreciate you for livening things up.
Last night on the season premiere of Mob Wives: New Blood, viewers met Alicia DiMichele Garofalo. She is the wife of alleged mobster Edward “The Tall Guy” Garofalo and her family’s relationship with Renee Graziano dates back before the show began. In this gallery, we offer a look at Alicia beyond the headlines about her and the fights we’re sure to see on season four of one of my favorite VH1 reality series. Check out photos of Alicia the mommy, Alicia the fashionista, Alicia the occasional party girl, Alicia the business owner, and of course, Alicia the new reality star.
The Mob Wives are the stars of this week’s fashion roundup. The ladies have been making the media rounds in promotion of the highly anticipated Mob Wives: New Blood. Though Big Ang is missing in action, Renee Graziano, Drita D’Drita Davanzo along with new star make up for it. Check those three ladies out in addition to your favorites.
Spoiler: K. Michelle’s hair matches her dress. Please look at that and let it settle on you for a few minutes, Love you, K.
