Was Yandy Smith fired? Season three of Love and Hip Hop premiered last week, but already it’s clear that most of the drama is taking place off-screen. Just two episodes into the season, two of the cast mates have already been involved in scandals. While we’re still not sure if Rich Dollaz and Erica Mena’s relationship is even real, and Rich Dollaz is caught up in a nasty paternity battle with a woman who claims he is not claiming his child. She was able to get a court ordered paternity test, but the reality star didn’t show up to court and was arrested last week as a result. Then of course there has been a string of women on Twitter claiming that Rich isn’t acting like he’s in a relationship.
But the biggest scandal of all would have to involve fan favorite Yandy Smith’s baby daddy Mandeecees Harris. Mandeecees has been accused of sexually assaulting a minor, and the young girl is rumored to be the 15-year-old daughter of his other baby mama. Mandeecees is set to appear in court soon, and Yandy hasn’t said much about the controversy.
There are now rumors going around that Mona is furious with Yandy and Mandeecees for not telling her about the situation, and as a result, it has been speculated that Yandy and Mandeecees will be phased out the show through heavy editing.
But when asked about the rumor, Mona Scott Young suggested that the rumors simply aren’t true:
We never believed the rumors, especially since both Mona and Yandy have gone on the record several times and stated that they were extremely close. In fact, Yandy considers Mona to be a her mentor and Mona has been looking out for Yandy plenty with her business ventures.
