Reality TV star Erica Mena is standing by damning allegations she made on Twitter earlier this year about her ex-fiance, Shad Moss. At the time, Mena claimed that the rapper turned actor physically abused her, an allegation Moss vehemently denies.

HipHollywood caught up with Mena on Wednesday night at the All Def Movie Awards where she made it clear that while she has no plans of retracting her claims, she does regret airing out her personal drama on social media. “Do I go back on that [abuse allegation] specifically? No, those allegations weren’t just falsely thrown out there. The way I did it, I regret it, but the truth is the truth,” she tells us exclusively.


As for other claims and declarations spilled on the social networking website, the beauty explains, “I wish it didn’t happen.” According to Mena, these were two “very emotional” people going through it and “didn’t take a moment to think things through before we reacted.”

“I kind of wish I never said anything. But it is what it is. Now I just wish him the very best. It was a great ride while it lasted and not everything works. We didn’t. Everything falls into place, everything happens for a reason. I learned so much in that relationship that I think moving forward I’m going to do things a lot different.”

As for life after the public split, Mena says, “going into 2016 it was just all about myself. It’s been a great liberating moment, I’m learning a lot, and I’m just taking the time to really take care of myself.”

Erica adds, “I hope it shows because I’m really refocusing everything and things are coming together for the first time, actually I feel like things are falling into place perfectly.”

The 28-year-old says she has some big things in the works but can’t reveal them just yet.


What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
