WE tv has another hit on their hands! If the first episode of their 8 episode new docu-series Sisters in Lawis any indication of what to expect, get ready for a weekly dose of law and order with a helping of shade.
Last night, We tv along with the Association of Black Women Attorneys (ABWA), celebrated the premiere of its latest show Sisters in Law. Held at the Museum of Art & Design, invited guests included New York tastemakers and media treated to a cocktail reception followed by a screening of the first episode. After the screening cast members Jolanda Jones, Juanita Jackson, Rhonda Wills, Vivian King, Monique Sparks, and Tiye Foley participated in a Q&A session moderated by TV and radio host, Jacque Reid.
Attendees included Naturi Naughton, TV/Radio personality Bevy Smith, Elle Varner, Judge Lauren Lake of Paternity Court, as well as reality stars Yandy Smith and Boogie Dash.
Sisters in Law follows a group of six talented female black attorneys in Houston as they tackle some of the toughest cases in Texas. In spite of being in a field dominated by men – who are predominately white – these black women have risen through the ranks propelled by their relentless need to achieve justice for their clients. Bonded by their immense passion for law, their gender, and their race over the years they’ve established a close-knit professional and social group. With egos the size of Texas, they at times find themselves at odds as they juggle their careers, families, political aspirations, and social calendars; struggling to remain united in the face of fierce competition — under intense pressure to succeed.
Sisters in Law premieres tonight on We tv at 10 p.m. ET/PT and trust us you want to tune it. If you won’t take our word for it, watch the first look trailer below. If you’d like to check out more pictures from the evening hit the gallery below and remember stay fly!
Stuff Fly People Like always gets the exclusives, and we recently headed up to the Bronx to visit Aym Studios, the newest venture from our favorite Love & Hip Hop New York couple, Yandy and Mendeecees Harris.
Mendeecees will be going away for a while we are sad to report. Today the star of VH1’s hit reality show Love and Hip-Hop was sentenced to a 97-month prison sentence in Rochester on federal drug trafficking charges.
Mendeecees pleaded guilty to the charges back in April and per a bail agreement forfeited all of his earnings from the show and public appearances to the federal government.
Mendeecees Harris, a star in the popular VH1 reality series Love & Hip Hop-New York, received a 97-month prison sentence in Rochester on Tuesday for a federal drug trafficking crime.
Harris pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Rochester in April.
Harris’ plea called for a sentence of eight to 10 years in prison.
He has been free under a bail agreement in which his earnings from the show and his paid public appearances are turned over to the federal government. That amount was more than $100,000 in April but may have significantly grown since then.
Harris this year married his girlfriend Yandy Smith, who has been a continuing fixture on the reality show.
The news comes on the heels of the release of the super trailer for Love and Hip-Hop New York as their season sets to kick off this month. Our thoughts are with Yandy and their children as they have to see Mendeecees go away again this time, for a long time.
