Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club host DJ Envy addressed dating rumors sparked by Erica Mena and admitted to cheating on his wife Gia Casey on morning (Feb. 25). After the NYC-based DJ opened up about his troubled marriage weeks ago by apologizing on-air to his spouse of 18 years, he felt the need to clear up even more of the fuzzy details.
“I started messing with somebody that was beneath me,” he said, alluding to the Love & Hip-Hop cast member. “A bird. Evil. A liar. Somebody that was desperate and it’s just so pathetic. I mean I didn’t have to feed this person. I didn’t have to make her feel special because she wasn’t. So that’s what it was.”
In a exclusive talk with Vixen, Mena responds, “DJ Envy’s definitely talking about me, but I’m one of many. I was under the assumption that he had kids but wasn’t actually married. I found out around the time that I started filming Love & Hip-Hop. After I found out, I was still in shock because we were together for so long. I didn’t understand how he could take a vow as serious as marriage and take on a whole other relationship.”
“It’s sad that now he’s taking all these shots saying I’m a liar and I’m pathetic, when he deceived me,” she continues. “It’s not fair to paint me out as a liar when he was leading a double life for many years. He’s never publicly come out with his wife until now because he’s ashamed of her. It’s no secret.”
While Envy is attempting to salvage his broken marriage, Erica has been dating her manager Rich Dollaz. His thoughts on this?
“He’s known about this for awhile because I told him. He isn’t phased by this.”
The former urban model recently announced the release of her autobiography Underneath It All in April. In it, she details more about her and Envy’s relationship. “For me, I never spoke about it because it was embarrassing as a woman. Of course, now I explain it in my book. I want to be clear: My book is not a tell-all. It’s just a book about my life and Envy is apart of my life.”
