It looks like a congratulations is in order for Erica Mena! The reality TV star and her growing baby bump were spotted hanging out with someone who she called “Auntie Ash.” Erica posted pics of her in a tight, green dressed that showed off her bump while she was in D.C. There’s only one probably with this situation Erica’s on and off boo and fellow Love & Hip Hop star, Rich Dollaz, doesn’t seem to know anything about her being pregnant! According to Rich the on and off couple will be speaking about the issue when Erica heads back to NYC and he claims that the couple is more “off these days” but it’s not like Erica just got pregnant. Erica recently got into a brawl at a nail salon as Rich looked on and she appeared to be scrambling to cover her body up and this might be the reason why. I’m happy for her and hope it ends up better than her kicking Rich in the neck! Check out pics of her in the gallery and his reaction below.
