In a recent chat with People, former “106 & Park” co-host, Bow Wow revealed that he still lives at home … with his mother. “It just makes sense,” the actor said of the eight-bedroom Atlanta mansion he shares with fiancée Erica Mena, 28; and mother, Teresa Caldwell. “First of all, the house is too big, but I want to make sure my mom is comfortable forever.”
The “CSI Cyber” star went on to reveal that even when he proposed to “Love & Hip Hop” alum Erica Mena last September, he already knew where they’d be starting married life together.
“I remember when I first moved to Atlanta and Jermaine Dupree had the same situation,” he recalls. “He took part of the house and his mom had the whole rest of it. I said then that I wanted to have the same setup.”
And while Moss and Mena have crashed in the remodeled basement, Caldwell has taken over the main level and second floor.
“It’s like I have a condo downstairs,” says Moss, who splits his time between Atlanta and L.A. to film “CSI: Cyber.” “I’ve had 100 people there and my mom has been asleep and has never heard the music, screaming, laughter. I mean full-blown house parties downstairs while she is in the bed asleep. So I’m staying right here.”
Even though all three live under the same roof, Bow Wow, who was born Shad Moss, admits it’s easy to miss one another in such a big home.
“There [are] times where I’ll be down there for three days and we don’t see each other, so it’s like I’m out of town even when I’m here,” he says adding one perk of being so close to mom: “I don’t have to get in the car and drive anywhere to see her. I just come up the stairs and say, “What up, Mom.’ ”
