Yandy Smith-Harris has no regrets about marrying her long-time love Mendeecees Harris even though he could be sentenced a to prison again this year.
“Love & Hip Hop” fans know that Yandy’s journey to altar was anything but smooth as her honey Mendeecees faced time in lockup for alleged drug trafficking. It was the wedding she’d been dreaming of for years when they tied the knot on live television on Memorial Day. Even as she said “I do,” many of her fans were wondering why.
As she told Wet Paint, no one knows what the future holds. Even though he agreed to a plea deal, claiming responsibility for a drug ring that operated in Upstate New York, Yandy wasn’t about to leave her boo. She’s in it for life no matter what!
“What I tell people is I’m not getting married because it’s good for right now. I’m not getting married because it’s bad for right now. I’m getting married for the long haul. I’m getting married… this is forever…it’s the good, the bad, the ugly, the unsure,” Yandy said. “That’s why you get married. You don’t get married only because someone wakes up cute cause I don’t wake up cute and he still loves me.”
She’s not sweating the fact that Mendeecees could be in prison for a much longer stretch this time around, either! While his sentence plea deal could see him sentenced anywhere from 5 to 40 years in prison, Yandy’s looking at the long haul.
“It’s not about that when you love somebody. When you have that in your mind that it’s not just about the good times and it’s about forever, it’s a small period on our life,” Yandy explained. “We have a lot of years to live. Small period.“
Yandy and Mendeecees should find out how long (or short) that period of time will be on August 31, when he’s due back in court for sentencing.
