When Mendeecees Harris proposed to Yandy Smith on “Love & Hip Hop” we clutched our pearls and swooned over the romantic moment. It seemed like her dream (and every other woman’s dream of being proposed to in an elaborate way) came true. Unfortunately, her fairy tale had a few dark pages in the middle of its bind. Mendeecees was sent to jail on drug trafficking charges and it wasn’t clear when and if he’d be coming home. We watched Yandy hold down their household and children, putting herself second behind the situation.

While most of the comments were joyous sentiments from fans who watched “Love & Hip Hop,” some people speculated that Mendeecees had “snitched” to get our of jail. We caught up with Yandy, who once and for all put to rest the rumors surrounding Mendeecees release.
