Yandy Smith was accused by Erica Mena of having the producers of “Love and Hip Hop New York” in her pocket to ensure her and Mendeecees Harris get good edits, and Yandy denied the claims in a recent interview.
However, Yandy once again tackles the accusations in a new interview with Hot 97. But to some, it also sounds a tad bit like shade.
When asked about Erica’s comments, Yandy says:
“Let me address something with Love and Hip Hop. I get Google alert about this way too much. There’s a certain cast member that you had up here that felt like I got special treatment. I keep hearing my named mentioned and I’m not sure as to why I’m constantly mentioned -but to clarify- yes, first season I was on the production side of Love and Hip Hop. When I decided to be a cast member, I relinquished all rights on a production side, But I don’t get special treatment. I just choose not to act an a** monkey. If I acted an A** monkey, best believe Mona Scott-Young would put up there me acting an a** monkey and would be like ‘Yand, you acted an a** monkey, but that got us some money.'”
