'LHHNY' Star Mendeecees I'm No Drug Dealer! More Like a Mule

1/12/2017 4:37 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0112-mendeecees-tmz-2Mendeecees Harris is making an odd plea for a guy who's currently doing hard time for drug trafficking -- he's insisting he's NOT a drug dealer ... TMZ has learned.

Seems too little, too late, but the 'Love and Hip Hop NY' star -- who got 8 years in prison -- says federal prosecutors gave him the shaft during sentencing because they made it sound like he was dealing cocaine and heroin.

In docs obtained by TMZ ... Harris says he was merely "collecting drugs from one party and handing them to another." He says feds never even accused him of setting prices or having knowledge of the entire drug operation.

Translation: I was a small fry, and they know it.

Harris has been in the pen for one year, and he's fighting to get his sentence reduced.

'Basketball Wives' New Cast Revealed ... Dwyane Wade & Nick Young Won't Be Happy!

Exclusive Details

1201_keonna-green_Evelyn-Lozada_Aja-Metoyer_tmz_instagramVH1's "Basketball Wives L.A." is cleaning house ... bringing in several new cast members including Evelyn Lozada, plus the infamous baby mamas to Nick Young and Dwyane Wade ... TMZ has learned.

Production sources tell us Keonna Green, who just had her 2nd kid with Nick, and Aja Metoyer ... who has a 3-year-old by Dwyane -- will join Shaunie O'Neal, Tami Roman and Jackie Christie for the next season.

Executive producer Shaunie definitely increased the drama with her new hires. Keonna made headlines when her pregnancy broke up Nick's engagement to Iggy Azalea. As for Aja, she hooked up with Dwyane when he was allegedly "on a break" from Gabrielle Union.

1201-nick-young-iron-man-keonna-green-INSTAGRAM-03Nick and Dwyane probably won't watch, but we suspect their lawyers will.

Evelyn was an original cast member when 'BWLA' started in 2010, but left after the 5th season. She's also guest hosting on "The Real" next week.

1201-mendeecees-harris-INSTAGRAM-01"Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Mendeecees Harris is apologizing for all his coke and heroin slinging -- on his way to starting a prison sentence.

He got credit for already serving 15 months ... so, he'll be in for less than 7 years. 

Mendeecees has reportedly already paid back the feds more than $100k from his earnings and appearances on 'Love & Hip Hop.'

After court, he posted a message saying, "I completely accept responsibility for all that is going on" ... and thanked his family and fans for their support.

Get it, Momma.

According to our sources, the couple was supposed to host a Mayweather/Pacquiao party at a rented house in town, but Mally showed up with three chicks that weren't Nikki ... and she didn't show up at all.

'Love & Hip Hop: NY' Star GUILTY of Slinging Coke & Heroin Off to Prison After Wedding

4/22/2015 10:36 AM PDT
Breaking News

0422-mendeeces-lhh-instagram'Love & Hip Hop' couple Mendeecees Harris and Yandy Smith might be honeymooning in a federal prison ... because the groom just plead guilty to running a drug ring in upstate NY. 

Harris struck a plea deal in the case, and will now face 5 to 40 years in the federal pen, and/or a fine of $5 million. The feds nailed him for a drug trafficking operation that shipped cocaine and heroin to Rochester for 7 years. 

Harris will remain free on bail until his sentencing in August -- good thing for him ... since he and Yandy are getting married next month on "Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding." By the way, he also has to surrender all his paychecks from 'LHH.' 

The only good news for Yandy -- when her hubby gets locked up ... she'll get back most of the $200k she put up for his bail when he originally got busted last year.

'Love & Hip Hop' Star Jhonni Blaze Co-Star Throws Shade ... Helps Spread Stripper Fight Vid

4/16/2015 12:41 PM PDT

What do you think "Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Jhonni Blaze is more pissed about -- the fact a video of her catching an ass whupping is going viral ... or the fact one of her co-stars helped spread it?

The video is from Jhonni's stripper days back in Houston ... a few years ago, and shows her in an epic fight with another stripper. All you need to know is Jhonni (who used to bang Drake) is the one on the ground ... so the clip is far from flattering to her.

As for why the video just surfaced ... Jhonni recently talked smack about being a badass on the 'LHHNY' reunion show -- so a fan of Moniece Slaughter (Jhonni's nemesis) dug up the clip to shame JB. Moniece was delighted and even reposted the clip ... though she eventually deleted it.

In the end, it doesn't really matter why -- it's a great video. Watch and enjoy.
