Fast forward a few months to this past April, and Mendeecees entered a guilty plea to charges that could land him in prison for close to a decade. Just last month, a US District judge handed down the maximum sentence to the reality star, and Mendeecees’ wife Yandy was chastised for throwing him a lavish going away (to the clink) party (twas a tad gauche). Accepting culpability for his actions, Mendeecees has been very vocal about changing the cycle of children who grew up as he did. While I clearly don’t condone any of Mendeecees’ horrific dealings, I did get the vibe (on the show) that he is a truly genuine person who wants the best for his children…although now he won’t be around to deliver.
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Heather Dubrow, Corey Simms, and Kyle Richards, love to show off their adorable kids and family photos on social media. It is tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the sweetest photos from the past few weeks.
Is it really tacky to give your loved one a helluva send-off before they’re placed in locked-down? Well apparently Yandy Smith, one of Love & Hip-Hop: New York’s stars, didn’t think throwing a ‘Going Away Celebration’ for her husband of one year and father of her two children, Mendeecees Harriswas such a terrible thing to do but some folks on Twitter disagree. According to Bossip, when news of Yandy’s club affair that is being held tonight in Dallas, Texas was leaked out and hit the internet, Twitterverse ‘turnt up! ‘
According to Bossip, the commentswere hardly complimentary nor empathetic about a move, many considered to be outright brash and shameless, for a man who broke the law:
Our favorite reality stars, like Heather Dubrow, Chelsea Houska, and Jenni Pulos, love to show off their adorable kids on social media. They never need a reason to share, but when they DO have a reason, watch out! As expected, they flooded social media with photos from Christmas Eve and Christmas. Here is a roundup of some of our favorites.
It’s heartbreaking news for the Love & Hip Hop star who is married to Yandy Smith and the father of two young children, but Mendeecees now says that he takes full responsibilities for his actions and explains why he turned to a life of crime in the first place.
The original Love & Hip Hop franchise may be returning in two weeks with a brand new season, but one cast member may not get to watch the episodes as they air. Mendeecees Harris was sentenced today in Rochester, New York on a very serious drug trafficking charge.
The reality star (and groom of co-star Yandy Smith, thanks to VH1 sponsored live wedding ceremony) pleaded guilty to crime back in April in US District Court, and his sentence today could have had him facing years of prison time and a very hefty fine. As I was typing up this post, the Democrat & Chronicle updated its site with the judge’s ruling. Mendeecees was sentenced to serve 97 months in jail, or just over eight years to those (like myself) who aren’t mathletes.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from last week.
