I told you guys I would keep you posted on all things Yandy Smith & Mendeecees Harris, until their wedding day, right. Well, it seems I have to deviate a little from all the wedding bliss. All of us have been wondering with all the baby happiness, and wedding planning, when were we going to hear about Mendeecees legal case- we knew it hadn't gone away. According to Jasminebrand's blog, the "Love & Hip Hop NY" reality star, 36 year old Mendeecess plead guilty on Tuesday April 21st. Eeekkk. "Specifically, he pleaded guilty to narcotics conspiracy and admitted that he was involved in a drug trafficking operation (between 2005 and 2012) that reportedly involved shipping cocaine and heroin to the Rochester region.

"According to reports, his agreement includes him turning over money from his LHHNY television show and all of his paid appearances. His attorney stated that the money which will be paid to the federal government, has totaled more than $103,000. At this point, he is said to be free on a $600,000 bail package. However, he faces a sentence of 8 to 10 years in federal prison and/or a fine ranging from $15,000 to $5 million. He will also face four or five years of supervised release.Mendeecees’ brother Tyrus Harris, previously pleaded guilty and is serving 10 years in federal prison. Mendeecees will remain free on bail until his sentencing, on Aug. 31 at 3 p.m."

Lord have mercy. This definitely puts a damper on flowers, and bridesmaids that I am imagining for Yandy at her wedding. I can't imagine what a woman is thinking right now knowing that the father of your children, and soon to be husband, will face up to ten years in prison. We can't help who we love sometimes, but it's hard dealing with someone who has or had a completely different lifestyle from you. I'm praying for you girlie!

I can't say that I'm at all shocked -that my bestie in my head, Yandy Smith has landed a spin-off wedding special on VH1, to marry her sweetie Mendeecees. Don't you just love these two? I was crushed this past season of "Love & Hip-Hop: New York," when I thought Yandy turned down Mendeecees shot-gun proposal in Las Vegas. Even though we were all excited, Yandy felt she deserved to have the wedding of her dreams with her friends and family.

Well now, we all get to celebrate with them in May!!!! Yandy, announced Monday night on "Love & Hip-Hop: New York," reunion that she will be in a spin-off show, marrying Mendeecees for all of us to see on May 25th. The show “Love & Hip Hop LIVE: The Wedding” will follow the life of Yandy Smith and family, as they plan, and go through the craziness of putting this beautiful wedding together. Hey I might have to throw a girls party for this joyous occasion. MMM, what will I do???

The verdict is in and the legal feud between Memphitz (Mickey Wright Jr.), Vh1, and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta producers has officially ended, and he has lost the case.

Domestic Violence is not a game. By no means, should a man feel the need to ever put his hands on a woman. Unfortunately for K. Michelle when she joined the cast of "Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta" the lines seemed blurred on whether her claims of being physically assaulted by Memphitz, Toya Wright's husband( Lil Wayne's ex-wife) was true. As Season 1 and 2 progressed it seemed like K. Michelle kept making references to this abuse, and even alienating her from friendships with other cast members. K. Michelle, who was managed and dating Memphitz back in 2009 claims that he embezzled money from her music career, and beat her. Memphitz claimed that these suttle stories about him on the show, lead to harmed personnel and professional relationships. As viewers watched K. Michelle get more emotional about these claims on the show, we all wondered to an extent, was this all forreal, since he seemed so perturbed by the claims.

Memphitz who had an opportunity to join the cast and state his side by producer Mona Scott, opted not to, when wife Toya Wright suggested they shouldn't. Instead Memphitz decided he would fight his battles in the court room. "The case, originally filed in 2012, was a defamation suit against the owners of VH1 and producers of LHHA — for comments that his ex-girlfriend (K.Michelle) made about him concerning accusations of physical abuse and embezzlement — on the show.Ultimately, Memphitz sued for $15 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages.

What really came as a shocker to me, is even though Memphitz had denied these claims for so long he did admit to the below, which finally made me understand why K. Michelle, had been so adamant about what happened to her.

"In the depositions, he did acknowledge that in 2009, he got into a physical altercation with K Michelle in a Memphis hotel. He also said that he had spent money from Jive Record’s budget for jewelry, not to help her career, and had sent a text message threatening to kill K. Michelle’s son.

When is it ever ok, to take someone's money and buy jewelry, threaten anyone's son, and cover their face with a pillow? Sounds like you are getting some karma Memphitz..... What's even more interesting is how a lot of men feel like they can do things to women behind closed doors, and never have to pay the repercussions. It's obvious that Memphitz was more upset that his secrets had been brought to the light, then acknowledging that at some point in his affairs with K.Michelle, he harmed her.

Well today the scales were tipped and Memphitz's case is finito!!! Do you think this is karma??

Have you ever been on a great date? A date that made you want to rush to seeing the person again for the next date. In the world of singlehood, dating and figuring out what makes a perfect date can be somewhat daunting. Some men have lost the idea of what dating means, and instead would rather you meet them at their "cribs". For us old fashioned girls we still enjoy being pampered, and treated like the queens we are as we are in the courting stage with a guy. Today on the "The Meredith Vieira Show" Ashanti spilled some suttle tea on her latest date with God knows who. Since the Braveheart singer's break-up with Nelly, she's seemed pretty unbothered being linked to a few people, but no confirmed love matches. Is it me or do some of you think she kind of always hopes Nelly is watching her as she makes great attempts to move on.

On the show Ashanti goes into detail on what her latest amazing first date was. AShanti seemed to be cheesing, and blushing, all over the place as she gushed about the mystery guy who took her out on the perfect date.

Below are the highlights:

Meredith: So Ashanti what would be your idea of the perfect first date.

Ashanti: I would definitely say a nice restaurant, it’s not too loud so you can actually hear yourselves talk, the lighting, white table clothes and you can connect and it’s not so serious that you feel like you have to be engaged but you kind of get to know the person you talk, you laugh,you’re eating, you are having a good time, it’s relaxed and it’s not too stuffy. I had a fabulous first date a few months ago. It was beautiful because there was a lot of thought put into it. It was cute, it was right up here at Milos. The food was amazing, the lighting was gorgeous, the tables, the waiters were really cool.

I have to agree with Ashanti on this one, the perfect first date for me would be sitting at a nice restaurant, enjoying a great meal, over some great conversation. I'm not one of those women that wants to mountain climb, and play video games- a nice meal would do just fine.

What's been your favorite dating experiences?? Anything amazing, let me know!!!

Who am I to say that Nene Leakes from Bravo's "Real Housewives Of Atlanta" doesn't deserve to be on the show, I mean, she is married. However, I do believe for the network to keep hiking up this woman's salary every season, just so she stays on, is quite entertaining. According to CocoaFab's blog, with all the backlash with Nene and the women of the show, she wasn't too interested in returning for a season eight- which I don't believe, but opted to return with the increase in salary.

"Andy Cohen knows a good thing when he sees it and when it comes to ratings Nene Leakes is his queen bee!

But if Bravo wants Nene Leakes to return for season eight of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, they had better show her the money. According to Radar Online, Leakes recently renegotiated her contract at Bravo in order to continue to star in the immensely popular reality series. She is allegedly the highest paid cast member on RHOA, banking an estimated $1.5 million this season. However, she reportedly hated filming with the rest of the crew and was ready to leave the popular franchise.

Leakes tried to mend fences with the girls this season when she invited therapist, Dr. Jeff, to do a group session with the cast. Leakes goodwill attempt ended up being more of bashing session in which Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Claudia Jordan and even Kandi Burruss went in on Leakes’ mean-girl behavior. She stormed out of the therapy session; similar to how she got emotional and made an abrupt exit off the set of the reunion. Following the taping of the reunion show, Leakes told E! News, “I just left Housewives where I was working with like, six monsters.”

Wow, Nene depicts the women as "six monsters", and I'm not taking sides, but there was a lot of shade thrown around this season from all parties. However, Nene can be working anywhere else right now, so for the network- I guess it's worth it. Smh. Nene is definitely getting rich!!!

Would you take your husband back if he kept cheating? Would you take your boyfriend back if all he did was cheat? Some women feel a marriage is worth saving since God honors marriage, and you should be willing to fight for your marriage. However, when do you say enough is enough when you know a man is just no good? After Daniel 'Booby' Gibson cheated for like the umptieth time recently, we all thought that was it, but TMZ is reporting Keyshia Cole and husband are back on, and even travelling together!!

"TMZ Sports now brings you concrete-ish evidence that the on-again/off-again marriage of former NBA star Daniel “Booby” Gibson and his R&B star wife Keyshia Cole is currently ON AS HELL.

We got video of the couple — plus their adorable son — out at LAX together yesterday and when we asked Booby how the relationship was doing he replied, “We’re doing great.”

The two were famously on bad terms until just recently … when they were seen all over each other at the premiere of Keyshia’s new reality show — begging the question … reconciliation?!

Canoodling at a premiere is one thing — but making an airport trip together … totally banging again, right?!"

Mmm, do you ladies agree? How much cheating would you allow your hubbie to do before you pull the plug and say enough? We all know relationships can be fly by night but is it easy to give up on your husband? I'm torn, because I feel like a cheating boyfriend can always be left to the wolves, but how easy is it to walk out on kids, and family?

Share your thoughts???

Wow, I haven't sang in probably ten years, but Adrienne Bailon decided that after 6 years of hiatus from singing she'd sing on the show she co-host 'The Real' and do a tribute for Selena. Today marked the 20th anniversary of the death of Selena Quintanilla-Perez. The Tejana music star was killed after garnering much success into mainstream music at the age of 23 years old. She inspired many young Latina's today including Adrienne Bailon.

Adrienne former member of 3LW and the Cheetah Girls, hadn't performed in almost 6 years. During a taping of 'The Real' a few months ago Adrienne expressed her fears were mostly part of being afraid to fail. I'm so happy she came out of her shell today, and did it for all the Latina's who love both her and Selena! Never let fear cripple you ladies. Always work on your passion.

The Real host took to the stage to perform Selena's most famous crossover hit I Could Fall In Love. Check out the performance, it's so cute.
