During this week’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop,” fans got to, sadly, witness Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris’ family pulled apart as Harris turned himself into police for drug trafficking charges. Now, in a new interview with Vh1, Smith reveals that Harris is currently incarcerated and explains how she’s coping with the matter.
“You know, it’s a hard situation, especially when you don’t have any answers yet,” Smith said. “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.”
There’s been no final verdict in Harris’ case just yet but if he is convicted, he faces up to five years in prison for charges that he distributed drugs in Maryland.
“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!” said Smith. “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?”
Smith explains that she and Harris have put their wedding plans on, for now, but she says that, right now, she’s just focused on making it through the case and, some days, just making it through the lonely nights.
“We both were busy during the day so it really hits me at night when I come home. 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,” said Smith.
Well, Smith certainly isn’t alone in this kind of tragic situation. Check out some other celebrity women who have stood by their men during legal dramas below. – nicholas robinson
