The ongoing drama between and Spice has been a hot topic in recent weeks, with fans eagerly following the latest developments. It all started when Erica Mena left Atlanta, and things have only escalated from there.

The initial clash between Erica Mena and occurred during a heated exchange on the show, where Erica drew a comparison between herself and Spice while discussing her divorce from Safari Samuels. What started as a verbal altercation eventually turned physical, with both women engaged in a confrontation. To make matters worse, Erica was captured on camera using a derogatory term to refer to Spice calling her a “blue monkey.”, which ignited a firestorm of controversy.

In the aftermath, social media exploded with reactions from fans. Many were quick to dig into Erica's past, accusing her of making racially insensitive comments. Calls for her removal from the Love & Hip Hop franchise grew louder, and the pressure eventually led to the show officially announcing that Erica Mena would no longer be part of seasons.

Not stopping there, the ALLBLK network also took a stand by removing Erica from their series “Hush,” where she portrayed the character Gina.

In response to the backlash, Erica Mena tried to clarify her intentions, claiming that her comments were not racially motivated and that she reacted strongly because of the mention of her son. However, Spice, not one to back down, refuted these claims and highlighted instances where Erica had used derogatory language in the past.

Recently, Erica issued a public apology, expressing deep regret for her insensitive comments and offering a heartfelt apology to anyone she may have hurt or offended with her thoughtlessness. This move was met with mixed reactions from fans.

Following her removal from Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, the 35-year-old posted an apology on her Instagram page. She expressed, “I deeply regret my insensitive comment and want to humbly apologize to anybody I hurt or offended by my thoughtlessness. My choice of words was wrong, and I take full responsibility for what I said. I am committed to listening to the voices of those affected and I will work toward making amends.

As a woman of color and the mother of two black children, I want to make it clear that my use of that word was not in any way racially driven. That said, I do understand the gravity of what I said and want to use my platform to promote inclusivity and equality. Sincerely Erica Mena.”

This apology became a crucial moment in the continuing drama, causing fans to reflect on its honesty and its effect on the evolving situation.

Some fans pointed out that Spice had also made questionable comments, such as calling fellow castmate Bambi a “giraffe” in a recent episode. They questioned whether Spice should be held to the same standards as Erica. Others criticized Spice for what they perceived as a “bully mentality.”

Erica's supporters have called for Spice to apologize as well, believing that both parties should take responsibility for their words and actions. Erica herself replied to a fan's comment, saying that Spice would never be brave enough to say sorry to her. She said, “She will never have the guts, unfortunately.”

As the ongoing drama plays out, fans are split on whether Erica should receive an apology as well, and whether Love & Hip Hop Atlanta should remain consistent in addressing this matter. It remains to be seen how this drama will ultimately be resolved, but one thing is for sure: the tea is still brewing, and fans are eagerly awaiting the next developments in this ongoing saga.
