‘Love & Hip Hop’ Star Mendeecees Writes Touching Note to Family After Prison Release

Mendeecees is thankful for his blessings.

A week after leaving prison for drug trafficking, the “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star wrote a heartfelt note on Instagram to his wife, Yandy Smith-Harris, and his kids for their unwavering support.

While posting photos from a recent family outing to Walmart, the VH1 personality exclaimed, “Having a place to go is a home. Having someone to love 💕 is a family. Having both is a BLESSING. Family is everything.”

He also expressed gratitude to fans, writing, “Thank u for all of y’all welcomes.. they’re really appreciated and it doesn’t go unnoticed!!”

Last week, Smith-Harris posted a video — with the location tag “Freedom 2020” — of her husband throwing away his old clothes.

“Never going back...” she captioned the clip.

Though he was sentenced to eight years, he ended up doing five years and three months.

Per TMZ, he is currently on parole, will report to a halfway house for several months, and will participate in a work-release program. However, he will be granted passes to see his family.
