Yandy has been sharing her life for years on LHHNY.

Love And Hip Hop New York” star Yandy Smith has lived a good bit of her life out on the successful reality show. However, she opened up even more on “Uncensored.” On the show, Yandy discussed her upbringing. And she discussed her eventful time at Violator Management. Then, of course, she also touched on what she experienced being Jim Jones’ manager. However, one of the most emotional aspects of the episode was Yandy discussing her relationship with Mendeecees Harris.

The love affair played out on the show. And there may have been moments of drama, but they had a lot of happy moments on the show, too.

Yandy worried about people seeing her life’s imperfections.

Most LHHNY fans can recall the lavish wedding the couple had on television.

However, they were shocked to learn that the marriage was not made legal. Later on in the show, Yandy would explain why. And while many fans understood, Yandy did get a lot of criticism. And some were also critical of Mendeecees’ legal issues. This is something that she actually feared.

In fact, after Yandy fell out with Kimbella, Kimbella would go on to call her Yandy Smith “No Harris.” Despite this kind of criticism, Yandy still believed that the best decision was made when it comes to the entire situation.

Yandy also revealed how Mendeecees getting locked up nearly took her life. And if it wasn’t for her mother stepping in, she’s not sure that she nor her son would have survived.

    I think it’s awful Mendeecees put himself, Yandy and their kids in the situation to begin with. But you live and you learn. I hope he never gets caught up again and they continue to build their empire legally. Much love to Yandy. I really respect her grind. She’s inspiring.

    Yandy and those babies could have been shot and killed by those agents. For the love of everything, I can’t understand why there are black men who choose this street way of life. It’s selfish. It’s dangerous. And you can be successful and build wealth without going that direction.

    I think there was no point in having the wedding if they knew they wouldn’t make it legal. They could have just waited until all his federal debt was paid off. And I had no idea the feds came busting into their home like that with guns pointed. That’s terrifying.

    Yandy is a good person but I do think she cares too much about what other people think. I get that she has a brand but people will always think what they want to. So just enjoy your life. Mendeecees made a bad decision but I’m sure he’s learned from it. God bless them and their family.

    Good example of “for better or worse” Sorry she had to go through that horrible experience of the Feds busting in on her and her family. But she remained strong, and they can now get on with their life.
