“Love & Hip Hop: New York” star Yandy Smith has managed to garner a slew of fans due to her interesting storyline on the VH1 series, but the reality star has continuously had a special person by her side when times get rough, her best friend Kimbella Vanderhee.

As Yandy prepares to celebrate her 35th birthday on Sunday, it is more than likely that Kimbella is either by her side or wishing her a joyful celebration from afar.

The two made their “Love and Hip Hop: New York” debut during Season 2 of the series, which aired between 2011-12, but the duo were friends long before their careers as reality stars kicked off.
