Mena tells TMZ that she was completely misrepresented by the show's editors in the episode and made out to be the bad guy, while Kimbella came across as innocent.

"My whole image in my career is now affected by this," says Mena. "I wanted them to pull this clip because I don’t want to show this side of me."
