Love & Hip Hop New York star Yandy Smith is officially submitting the paperwork for a legalized marriage to her co-star husband Mendeecees.

After a televised wedding on Love & Hip Hop, Smith was originally not too worried about the legal aspects.

However, them making things official would be another goal accomplished for Smith, as she gears up for a skincare line and a line of children’s books.
