Yandy & Mendeecees
Poor Yandy, waiting on her man while he’s in jail and trying to raise her baby, Omere, and his son, Mendeecees Jr., without him. Yandy is a good mom and only wants to protect the boys and provide for them while her man is locked up, and she’s been telling seven-year-old Mendeecees Jr. that his dad is in the Army and that’s why he’s not home. The kid is young, but he’s no fool, and he knows the truth. He breaks Yandy’s heart in a million pieces when he tells her “You know I knew that my father’s in jail. When you first knew, I first knew.”
“How long you been keeping that in?” she asks him.
That shattering sound you just heard was all of our hearts breaking, actually.
If that wasn’t hard enough, Mendeecees stint in jail is taking a toll on their relationship and they argue on the phone, when they get the chance to speak. Worse is the fact that Yandy doesn’t know how long he’ll be away for, but the outlook at the moment if very grim — could be a minimum of twenty years. This relationship is being tested like no other.
