What’s the difference between Alicia Keys and Amina Buddafly? According to Erica Mena, the thing that distinguishes them is that Alicia knew Swizz Beatz was married before getting romantically involved with him.
“Alicia Keys did the same thing,” said Erica, presumably referring to Alicia’s relationship with Swizz, who was first married to Mashonda.
“No one bashes her. It’s not talked about because it’s all about how the story gets put out there, but it’s the same scenario. The only thing different is Alicia Keys did know he was married,” Erica told Juicy magazine.
Alicia has maintained that she was not a factor in the split between Mashonda and Swizz to whom Alicia is now married, and the two have a son.
Fans of “Love & Hip Hop: New York” already know the story of how Peter Gunz married Amina Buddafly while he was playing house with his girlfriend of 13 years, Tara Wallace.
“You’re seeing a hypocrite at its best,” she said about Peter, who gave her grief last season for being in a relationship with her manager, Rich Dollaz. “It’s sad that the same person that was giving all this great advice last year needs to be taking his own as much as anybody. Karma’s a b!tc# and as you can see, he’s deteriorating and his dirty feet aren’t getting far.”
While many “LHHNY” fans and cast members are totally Team Tara, Erica said she’s an Amina supporter.
“I actually became an Amina fan when she pulled out that ID,” she said, referencing when Amina showed Tara her driver’s license as proof that she and Peter are man and wife.
One person Erica’s not a fan of is her on-air nemesis Cyn. Though they’d considered working together, the two have yet to have a conversation that didn’t end in loudly hurled insults.
“She’s talented in the strip club,” said Erica who is currently in a lesbian relationship. “I spent a lot of money on her.”
