Yandy Smith & Mendeecees Harris Respond After Fans Say Kimbella Vanderhee Was Right

Yandy Smith’s issues with Infinity Gilyard began while Mendeecees Harris was in prison.

Love And Hip Hop Atlanta” fans have a lot to say about the recent episode. On the current season, Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris have joined the cast. The couple is still trying to get adjusted now that Mendeecees is no longer in prison. So since they wanted to start a new chapter in their lives, they decided it would be best to move to Atlanta. This was also something they felt would be great for their children.

Interestingly enough, things haven’t been going so smoothly with their foster daughter Infinity Gilyard. Yandy said on the show that Infinity began to change after she got into a relationship with a much older individual. And she accused this individual of putting some negative thoughts in Infinity’s head. According to Yandy, this person even tried to make it so Yandy would lose custody of the children while Mendeecees was in prison.

So Yandy gave Infinity an ultimatum. She was told that she would have to end communication with that person. If she refused, Yandy wanted Infinity to go live with her grandmother. Eventually, Yandy discovered that Infinity was still in communication with that person. Infinity then had to move out.

This soured things between Yandy and Infinity. But they attempted to hash things out after Mendeecees came back home. After Infinity told the couple she wouldn’t be with them for Christmas, Mendeecees posted a family photo during the holiday to Instagram. Infinity felt left out and told her followers she would write a tell-all book.

To no surprise, this didn’t sit well with Yandy and Mendeecees. They have been trying to get in a better place with Infinity, but they weren’t comfortable when she suggested she could move back with them now that they live in Atlanta.

On the latest episode, they made the tough decision to tell Infinity that she has to now live on her own. But they would handle her bills the first couple of months as she looks for a job. Infinity broke down in tears and told the couple she felt abandoned.

Fans of the show have been calling out Mendeecees and Yandy on social media. And they had something to say in response.

    Yandy & Mendeecees shouldn’t respond to what they find ridiculous but reality tv puts your biz out there for people to judge.
    I find it hilarious now but not some months ago how people don’t know a person but have room in their mouths to speak about them. THERE’S ONLY ONE GOD AND ONLY HE CAN JUDGE!!
    They just need to stop answering to these folks. I think it’s dumbing themselves down.

      Thank you, God is the only one to honor. I believe Yandy wanted to help a child because every child counts. Infinity needs sincere counseling. I agree with Mendeece she is of age to get a job and pay for her own apartment she has tasted being with a man against Yandy’s wishes as her adopted Mom and for her to say a tell all book. Do not fall for the tears
      Tough love ? is the answer show her who is the bread winner that supported her.

    I don’t know if Kimbella was right or not but I do believe there is way more to this story that they aren’t telling us. I knew there would be problems because Yandy adopted this young lady while Mendeecees was in prison. That’s a major decision to make without your partner. I don’t think he will ever see her as one of their kids. So the tension will always be there.

    This is a tough situation because Mendecees wasn’t a part of the original decision he is disconnected from it and doesn’t really see Infinity as one of his own and that’s ok. Yandy should have made that decision WITH him. Infinity is also acting very entitled. Yandy created a platform for you and if she was smart she would use it wisely and that’s all imma say there because baby girl been through and she got enough people coming at her crazy.

    I’m still not convinced Yandy adopted Infinity for clout. But she definitely bit off more than she could chew. You can tell Mendeecees wanted none of this. He makes that very obvious anytime Infinity is around. That doesn’t make him a bad guy though. He just wasn’t included in a major decision when he should have been.

    Infinity is young and young people sometimes don’t understand there are consequences for every action. They aren’t abandoning her. But she will have to prove that she can be trusted again.

    To Yandy & Mendeecess if your “foster Daughter” feels so abandon
    WHY???? …..
    A: she knew that you had a husband prior to you even adopting her.
    B: seems like she took a vulnerable situation with Mendeecess knowing he was gonna get out sooner than later.
    C: now who died & made Infinity entitled.
    Also Infinity never respected Mendeecess due to the fact she wanted Yandy all to herself. Knowing She had A Whole life prior to Infinity. Yea I do think Infinity has a lot of growing up to do. Stop using her bio mom issues (abandonment) . Also stop putting that burden I’m Yandy & Mendeecess sh-t he could have said no from the jump then what.. On the simple fact of how she’s acting now like she’s entitled to their life.. No one wants to ever feel like they went out their way.. put their livelihood on the line (which is a Fact as we speak) SMH…. but yet and still they are trying to help this young lady to overcome her issues in life to become a better woman than her bio mom .. matter of fact why is Yandy being nailed to a cross ✝️.. when Yandy first stepped up mskimbella had nothing but nice things to say at first. Soon as she got mad at Yandy here comes the hitting below the belt when it was a good thing man people really need to grow tf up….. All…the…way..up
    Period. Infinity grow up you stay a little minded kid forever..
    Too many people have 1 track minds can’t think outside the box.. this all wrong at least they still helping that troubled girl .

    Once infinity crossed the line with a tell all book knowing these folks are celebrities, moving back in is no longer in the plan. Once a person shows you who they are the FIRST time please believe them. Mendecees already on it! Good job

    I feel like this situation is gonna kick Yandy in her butt. She has brought all this on her self and now want Mendecees to help her figure it out.I think this kid played her from the beginning and still is. What’s it gonna cause is her deciding between her husband and her foster kid. Mendecees mom may hv been right all alone..she should have stayed in foster care.

    What a lot of y’all don’t understand is that this whole thing can get mendecce sent back to parison because of the fact he is a Convicted felony and is not supposed to be around a child that is in the system and a under the government care y’all don’t understand that any little thing that happens are gose on and wrong and he is around it automatically gets him sent right back to prison no question asked. So I understand we’re he is coming from he haven’t even been home long enough are good enough with his own family and kids to enjoy and catch up on the man missed out on alot of special moments and things and times with his kids and so many first walks,words, birthday, school, and more and Yandy made a really big decision anyway on her own without her Husband knowing anyway. She didn’t have to do what she did she could have not given a care in the world about infinity and let the system take her in but no she didn’t do that, Yandy took in a whole another human and person and gave her love a place to sleep and stay feed her clothes on her back shoes on her feet money in her pocket bought her a car to get around in and so much more that she didn’t have to do because she has kids of her own to take care of them to. So the only thing that infinity had to do was respect her rules and her home and kids and Decision and she couldn’t do that because anything could’ve happened to her wanna be grown azz and it was going to fall all back on Yandy so I understand we’re they both are coming from. And she still has it good because they are offering to buy her a Place to stay and help paying her bills for the first two months y’all what more do she want from man she needs to really be thankful and because she has it good and really doesn’t care are really know it . Because I wish that my mommy would have helped me like this kids these days really don’t know how much and good they really have it because I’m my years growing up we didn’t have it like that it was get your own shiii and pay for your own shiii by yourself when mommy wld put u out lol frfr….

    This young girl is legally able to move out and be on her own. Yandy don’t owe that girl nothing! And she didn’t use her for clout.
