2. Nya Lee vs. Erica Mena
As Nya Lee explains to Erica Mena, “I’m shaking my ass. I’m tired of shaking my ass.” Like Joseline Hernandez, Baby, Nya Lee wants to leave the pole life behind, and to her credit, has been putting in the work to make her mark as a recording artist. This includes opening for Kendrick Lamar somewhere and recording a song with Jadakiss.
But to move her plot on the show going, she wants to record a song with Erica Mena. Seeking guidance from Joe Budden, the rapper asks Nya Lee, “If I give you a multiple choice, right? Kendrick Lamar, French Montana, Jadakiss, Erica Mena, which one of those people probably do not belong in that equation?” C is normally a safe bet with multiple-choice questions and last night was no different. Budden added in his confessional, “Novice helping novice doesn’t really get a novice anywhere.”
Nya Lee meets with Erica Mena anyway and the battle of the recording artists no one takes seriously commences. It's utterly hilarious to hear two artists we don't know argue about whose music is hotter on a reality TV show. Even funnier is watching the two try to downplay each other’s professions.
Nya Lee dismisses her dually being a booty model and aspiring recording artist, though she’s a stripper and an aspiring recording artist. Meanwhile, Erica talks about how Nya Lee pays her rent. Like, a booty model shaming a stripper. That happened.
P.S. Erica Mena introduces her girlfriend Cyn Santana. They talk about Chipotle and Cyn never dating a woman before. We’ll explore them more in the future as I imagine the producers are going to toss these two in our faces ad nauseam.
