For those of you who follow the VH1 reality series, Love and Hip Hop New York, you have probably seen Monday’s episode during which Mendeecees and Yandy were preparing for the possibility of Mendeecees going to jail. On the show he spoke about having to go in for questions with Federal agents. The two did not go into detail on the show about why he was being called in for investigation.
Though the show did not give us many details, previous reports stated that it may have something to do with drug trafficking charges involving the transporting of drugs from 2005 to 2012 in New York. Mendeecees turned himself in at the end of January, and in an interview with Vh1 Yandy confirmed that he is incarcerated.
Yandy spoke about how she is holding up and managing things, especially since the two were planning to be married in the near future. Here is the dialogue from the interview.
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.
