5. The Sky Is Blue and Erica Mena Is Reckless
Before Rich and Peter Gunz try to have a peace meeting with Erica Mena that would lead to future business, Rich swears to Peter that Erica is more than just the hot head he previously butt heads with. Maybe, but if Erica can’t stand someone, she makes that painfully clear as fast as humanly possible. Just ask Kimbella. Now if I know this as just a viewer, why doesn’t Rich?
As soon as Erica and Peter are in front of each other, Peter tries to speak to her. Twice. She ignores him. Twice. When Erica does speak, she wastes no time expressing her anger over Peter being the reason she and Rich severed ties (personally and professionally) to begin with. She also brings up Peter’s hypocrisy. Erica turns to Rich, who didn’t warn her about this meeting beforehand, “What is this supposed to be? You know I don’t like this n***a.” Follow up question: “Why you got me around him?” Yes, Rich, why do you?
You know, Erica Mena has never been my favorite character on this show. She sometimes comes across as a combo missing a few chicken nuggets with cold fries. I won’t deny that the woman is good for a quote, though. When Peter tries to come for her, she does not back down. "Yeah, my tits is fake, but my mouth is real,” she snaps. My personal favorite: “You can’t handle my mouth, motherf**ker.” Congratulations, Erica, for delivering one of the all-time best reality show quotes ever.
And bless Rich’s heart for seemingly only now realizing that Erica Mena is reckless and will remain reckless with the utmost confidence. Bless you, Erica: If no one else on this show knows who they are, you surely do.
