On the Love & Hip Hop Season 7 finale episode, the three women in Mendeecees Harris’ life sit down together. While Mendeecees is serving his eight-year sentence in prison for drug trafficking (heroin and cocaine in Rochester, New York), his wife Yandy Smith and the two mothers of his children, Samantha and Erika, continue to fight over him.
In the video below, the women talk about life in the beginning with Mendeecees. Samantha met him at a club. They dated for three years before she had Lil Mendeecees. But she wasn’t the only one in his life at the time. Erika says she first saw him on 125th Street. “He was with his Uncle Joe and was trying to holla. And I was like ‘Who is this little boy?’” Erika didn’t give him the time of day at first, she says. But then they started dating in 2003. Yandy says Mendeecees started dating Erika when Samantha was pregnant. Although Samantha says Erika wasn’t the reason why she broke up with Mendeecees. Love & Hip Hop airs Mondays at 8pm on VH1.
