Love and Hip Hop New York” star Mendeecees Harris was grateful to wrap up his time in prison. While he was locked up, Yandy Smith did everything she could to make sure their family would continue to thrive. She ran multiple businesses. Plus, she even got involved in the Black Lives Matter Movement. In addition, to Yandy being passionate about fighting for prison reform, Yandy has also been a voice in the fight against police brutality.

At times, she also opened up about how hard it was to keep it together mentally with Mendeecees away. So she was hurt to find out what Mendeecees really felt during the difficult time. According to Mendeecees, Yandy didn’t answer his phone calls enough. And he also said that there were times she didn’t send him enough emails either.

However, Yandy defended herself when the couple appeared on VH1’s “Couples Retreat.”

And she said that she was trying to wear multiple hats and make sure that the bills were paid. So she didn’t always have time to talk to Mendeecees as much as he wanted to. But she believes that she worked hard to hold down her man. So she wishes that he would show more appreciation and understanding.

When Yandy asked Mendeecees if he would hold her down if she was the one who had to serve time in prison, she didn’t like his answer. And some viewers didn’t either.

Well, Mendeecees recently responded to the backlash.

  • No one misunderstood him. The problem is Yandy didn’t hesitate to support him while he was in prison. She ran businesses, took care of the children, and made sure he would come back home to stability and an empire when he was released. And when she asked him if he’d do the same for her, he wasn’t sure even though it was never a question for Yandy to support him. This happens a lot. Women will support men and tolerate all kinds of horrible situations from them but men won’t do the same for women. The ride or die mindset is something black women need to retire.

  • I think it's Yandy he needs to explain this to, not us. And Yandy said it was unfair that he couldn't be sure when it was no hesitation for her. What makes his answer even crazier is when you remember how Papoose held down Remy when she was locked up.

  • I THINK THAT HE WAS BEING SELFISH! He said he doesn’t know how he would respond until he’s in that situation, well, what the h-ll do you think she did. You put her in that situation, and she did what she needed to do! Life didn’t skip a beat while you were gone. She dealt with your crazy a-s mama and baby mama drama, still held you down and carried your a-s! He was speaking from the heart! I’m not sure that he would carry you! He may have turned to one of those Barbary mama’s and blamed you for it! Yandy, if he returns, let him stay in Jail!

  • All that for that brother to avoid one question...."Does he want to be free, or stay with the person, who held the thing
    together. "I understand if you want to do something different, people fall in love....Mfer she loves "YOU", she stayed with "YOU"....And this is ALL he got...?

  • Sometimes just thinking on a marriage can chage things. I think these 2 genuinely love each other but communication needs work. What did Yandy hear? Is Mendeecees having second thoughts since being in prison? They need to be counseled. That show ain’t gonna cut it.
