Love & Hip Hop New York reality star Erica Mena has come out of the closest and is dating a woman named Cyn Santana.

Mena showed up to the Love & Hip Hop New York  premiere Monday night at Stage 48 in New York City to dish on her new girlfriend and what it feels like to date girls and not guys at the present moment.

"I've embraced the fact that I'm bisexual," she said. "I feel like at the end of the day why not have the best of both worlds? I think alot of women feel that way, but aren't man enough to step up, hold their balls and embrace it."

When asked by NYC Hot 97 radio personality, Laura Stylez the difference between dating a man like, Rich Dollaz and her new girlfriend, the model/ singer explained how she feels.

"I think in a man, they're very pryful and they care alot abotu what other people think, where woman it's like take it, it is what it is. I am who I am, I don't care," she said. "So when it comes to the difference between a man and a woman, it's just so much comforting when you're with a woman that says I'm riding or dying for you."

Mena also revealed that she is Santana's first woman-relationship. Santana, who appears to have a similar personality to Mena admitted that she's not a lesbian and was hit on by the reality star.

"She came on to me. I'm not interested in girls...I just like Erica Mena," Santana said.

"I met her," Mena said, later adding that she "wanted her" when she first saw her at a club.

Love & Hip Hop New York airs Monday nights at 8pm on VH1.
