Yandy Smith Speaks On Women Trying To Get With Mendeecees On The Low On Social Media
Yandy Smith has a lot to be happy about. She has her man back, an adorable son, a baby girl on the way, a successful television show, a digital lifestyle brand in Everything Girls Love and she still finds time to manage artists. Talk about a hustler! She’s a blessed and busy woman who seems to have a good head on her shoulders and a positive outlook on life. But from time to time, people try her, and she’s not afraid to respond. Earlier this year, after Mendeecees was released from jail, there were some women hitting up his direct messages on Instagram, hoping he would slip up. But they didn’t expect Yandy to have access to his account, and she wasn’t having it:
“Ooooh so y’all thought @mandeecees[sic] DM was safe? Lol! Nah when you DM him you might be talking to me…silly rabbits! #tricksareforkids #yeaIcheckthattoo #staystrong #dobetter ”
In a chat with The HipHop Socialite, she spoke further about whether or not she gets upset when women try to slide into Mendeecees’ DMs to make something happen, and despite going through his Instagram account in May, she now says she’s not worried about anybody trying to get at her fiance. She trusts him and is, well, unbothered as they say.
“It doesn’t bother me at all because just as many as he gets – like, ‘I love you, I can’t wait to see you tonight, what time you coming home baby?’ – they be on my page like that. There are people on my page like, ‘Yandy, I missed your call last night. Call me back today.’ And I don’t know this man, I’ve never seen him in my life. So because it happens to me, I don’t take issue when it happens to him, at all. It doesn’t affect me or us in the slightest, in the least. Now if he was out there liking booty pictures, now that…he learned his lesson, and I ain’t taking no booty pictures, so we good.”
She also talked about people who have a lot to say about her, her choice to stand by Mendeecees through his legal troubles, and her life in general:
“It doesn’t only happen in my relationship. It happens with my hair, my outfit, my makeup, if I’m getting fat or getting too skinny. It’s just what people do. And Instagram, Twitter, all those things have allowed people to become these super gangsters behind a screen with no face and no name. So it’s just what’s to be expected in this business. And then people often assume because they see you on a TV show, or they might see you post a few pictures, that they know your whole entire life. They don’t know what your story is, they don’t know what happens in your life, and they just assume that they know everything. And I let so many things go, but some things, if I’m in the mood and I have time, I feel like addressing. I don’t address everything, but like I said, they nitpick. If I have a post that I put up that has three hundred and fifty comments on it, you best believe there’s going to be five talking about my weight, my hair, my dad, my mom, you know, who’s this, what’s that – it’s just expected. It’s a shame, it’s sad that we are subjected to it, but I guess that’s just what comes along with the game.”
