The Truth About Yandy Smith And Mendeecees Harris' Marriage

Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris have been open with sharing their marital woes on reality television. The Love and Hip Hop: New York stars have had a rocky relationship that's withstood the challenges of cheating, prison stints, and baby mama drama. Yandy and Mendeecees tied the knot in an elaborate televised ceremony ahead of Mendeecees being sent to prison for drug trafficking, via Billboard. At the time, the couple had two children together, Omare and Skylar Harris, and Mendeecees had an older son with ex-girlfriend Samantha, Little Mendeecees, via Starcasm

But it was the birth of his son Aasim with his ex, Erika, that led to some serious showdowns on Love and Hip Hop, via VH1. Samantha and Erika seemingly teamed up to call out Mendeecees and Yandy over issues pertaining to conflicting timelines that stemmed from Mendeecees' cheating past. While Mendeecees was in prison serving out his eight-year sentence, Yandy, Erika, and Samantha battled it out on the reunion show. The drama led to Mendeecees calling in to the reunion show to clear the air on his history with Erika. To make matters worse, Yandy faced public scrutiny after she continued her relationship with incarcerated Mendeecees after viewers learned the couple weren't legally married, via Urban Belle Mag. But in the end, it was Yandy who was there to welcome Mendeecees home from prison with their two children, via TMZ. Let's see how the couple are preparing for their return to VH1.
