Last night’s Love and Hip Hop episode was rough for Yandy, Mendeecees and their family. Unexpectedly the FEDS came looking for Mendeecees (never a good sign), which resulted in him turning himself in to the courts.
We chatted with Yandy about everything. She was no holds barred on balancing her hectic business schedule as a new mom, her feelings about Rashidah and the highs and lows of her relationship over the years. Although the court situation is a sad and touchy one, Yandy was in good spirits. She was open enough to tell us how she’s holding up. Check back for the full interview with the business savvy Yandy.
VH1: Is Mendeecees currently incarcerated?
Yandy: He is.
Vh1: How are you holding up?
Yandy: You know, it’s a hard situation, especially when you don’t have any answers yet. It’s kind of just a waiting situation to see what this is all about, and that’s the hard part – the unknown is the hardest part.
VH1: It has to be tough. You’re recently engaged. One minute you’re in pre-wedding bliss then you’re hit with this news.
Yandy: Yeah, it’s hard. It’s absolutely hard. It’s hard when you kind of see your life flash before you. I know the life that we live together which has been like a storybook, like a fairytale with ups and downs of course, but it’s been good, and the love has been good, so for something like this to happen and to happen now, it’s like, “Ugh, why!” And you know you read about it with all the articles everywhere talking about the engagement. This case is from all these years ago. It’s just like, why now? You know? That’s just how I feel, like, why now of all times?
VH1: Are you putting everything wedding related on hold?
Yandy: Oh yeah, absolutely.
VH1: How do you keep your mind occupied so you’re not worrying and sad about him not being there with his sons?
Yandy: Well, you know I go through spurts, especially at night. I just keep busy. Like I told you, I haven’t had a day off, so I don’t even know if I’ve really soaked up what’s happening in my life because I’ve just been so busy. We both were busy during the day so it really hits me at night when I come home and I’m with the boys in the house, that’s when it’s like, “Aww, dag.” But I’m really faithful and hopeful that this situation will be cleared up and he’ll be back with us soon.
