Cyn Opens Up About Being in Therapy | Love & Hip Hop: New York


because you really were
vulnerable and talked about
your post-partum depression. What made you want to share
that with the world? I said it to somebody one time
and they said to me, “Girl, us women of color
or us Latinas, we don’t
deal with that.” I was very dismissed,
so I was afraid to say
that out loud on television. I was lost. I was afraid of
being judged a little bit. Okay. ‘Cause I’m like, I don’t
know. Is– Is that wrong
to, like, deal with? I’ve never… This
is my first child. Right. I spoke to Nya about it. You went through
the same thing? Yeah. So when she came,
I said, “Girl, it’s not
a white thing.” That’s how I felt. Like,
everything was fine and
I just was so sad, so I’m like, “This is what
you’re going through.” Yandy, did you deal with any
type of post-partum? I went through
a horrible depression. Like, I couldn’t cut
the lights on at times. I couldn’t… I got so
depressed that I couldn’t
even create milk. I couldn’t feed my baby. So, we saw that you guys sat down with Dr. Jenn.
Joe, what made you so emotional? Seeing how it was like a
full-circle thing for me, ’cause she really was
instrumental in me and my
oldest son’s relationship, so I would have never
thought back then that I
would be seeing her again to deal with some of
the feelings that I had
with my newborn. Okay. All right. So, Cyn,
you were very courageous in coming out about
your past sexual abuse. How did your family respond,
hearing it on national TV? (takes deep breath) That was actually the
first time that I’ve
ever said that out loud. My mom was like, “(bleep)!”
Like, I have to be honest, ’cause that’s the only
way that we’re gonna get
the help that we need, and I actually ended up
telling my mother the night before
the episode aired. It was a little
difficult for her. She was like, “When? Where?
How did this happen?” I wanted her to know
that I was fine. Like, I went through
something. Nobody knew. You didn’t know.
It’s not your fault. I’m fine. Like, I don’t
want you to worry. The good thing is, you do have
a good support system, so… I’m happy that
you shared this. I have a great support
system. Thank you. All right. I want to lighten
this up a little bit. Are you getting a nanny,
Cyn? I know you have been
dead set against it. Mm, we got a nanny! Okay. She came to me in tears
and she was like, “I will never,
ever hurt your child. Like, you never have to
worry about that with me,” and that made me feel
so secure, ’cause
that’s the only reason why I don’t even want people
changing my baby’s diaper. Like, I don’t want
nobody even looking
at my (bleep) kid and thinking of
anything, ’cause
I went through that. So, lighten up.
The nanny’s amazing.

  1. I was battling it too n didn’t even know I just thought I was tripping until the doctor had to tell me so yes it’s real n I too thought it only happens in movies or white folks but nope

  2. SHE DIDNT EVEN HAVE DEPRESSION THE COUNCELOR TOLD HER….. SHE JUST WANTED TO BE APART OF SOMTHING WHEN IN REALLITY SHES JUST THE GIRL ERICA FOUND AT THE BAR LOL

  3. Us women of every color need to come together!! Too many of us are going through it! It's too much fighting not enough support.

  4. I usually just fast forward the Cyn scenes. I understand and sympathize all that. And have been doing that since she made her appearance with Ericka but when you watch the tele you don’t want to be triggered by scenes that will bring down your current state and I swear It seems everybody has been molested, raped, abused or traumatized in some way and it becomes too much. I guess that’s why I like yhandy and JuJu so much because even tho and in spite of all that their storylines are full of positive movement. There comes a time where you just tire of feeling sadness or pity for the same person that’s always looking to others to make them feel happy, or sexy or interesting. Ugh. Hopefully next season will bring something more then a whining self absorbed mental case looking for attention and validation.

  5. I'm happy for Cyn♥I'm happy that she recognized that something wasn't right and sought help. I have 2 children and never experienced post-partum…I'm glad I didn't!! STAY STRONG CYN!!

  6. Something Is Off About Joe… Is He In The Closet Or Something… He Seems Distant Emotionally/ Cold… JA…?

  7. I've experienced postpartum depression with all my 3 pregnancies & it was so horrible. With my first 2 I didn't tell anyone because I was young I didn't even know what was postpartum depression plus I didn't want people to think I was crazy but I knew that I needed help. I got the help I needed but then with my youngest it was the worst & I had to take medication for it.

  8. For it to be sad that it is not a white thing. I am so sorry it pisses me off. Sorry to tell you all. But let me tell you all this i dont care where you come from or your race. When it comes to mental issues no one wants to talk about it because of the stigma. Back in the day they put anybody in a mental institution for anyreason. You could be homeless or you family not want you one lady only spoke french and they was tormented and torchered. So no no one in no coummity or race want to talk about. Becase of that you just dont you just deal with it. I am white and my family and alot of people i know that are white there families where raised the same way.

  9. I still think Joe Budden and Erica Mena would have made a better couple.
    Ditto for Cyn Santana and Safaree Samuels.

  10. I know this is a serious topic but she is actinggggg no tears switching up being happy playing it off being sad . Sucks that this platform shows such wishy washy behavior

  11. Sorry that she had to go through that but i just cant take her serious when she always goes from crying one second to happy the other & attitude the next … be looking fake asf but anyways 🤷🏻‍♀️

  12. I LOVE CYN SHE'S SO BEAUTIFUL ONE OF THE OG'S OF LOVE AND HIP HOP NEW YORK 😊😊😊💖💖💖💎💎💎

  13. Oh please she acted like she was a lesbian just to secure that bag. I don’t believe her about postpartum or being abused. Now she’s with joe, um talk about daddy issues! He mad old

  14. I love Joe but hate how he and Cyn came at Safaree. Not to mention how she talked down on black women will NEVER sit well with me. I’ve never seen so many people bitter about Erica, and I’m not even an Erica fan. The response from the cast was TRASH.

  15. 1 in every 10 women are diagnosed with PP. 1-2 in every 1000 women are diagnosed with PP psychosis. 5% of those women commit suicide and 4% kill their infants. Women’s health is so taboo even in 2019. Being a PSY major has really opened up my eyes and even though it’s horrific to hear I understand why some women snap.

  16. I know the feeling that Cin has about people being around there child or changing the baby's diaper cause i went through the something she did when i had my boys. I would not let anyone change there diapers or give them a bath out of fear that someone who touch them. A family member didd the something to me when i was 6yrs old and i never told my mom or anyone else til after i had my first child. So HAPPY she ia getting the help she needs. Thank you for sharing your story. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  17. That does happen in our community and it’s dumb. Just because you’re a certain race doesn’t mean your mental health is always alr. Lol

  18. Lol ppl need to be fulfilled and not have a baby thinking that will fulfill them it can make things a lot worst

  19. Just expose Joe buddin for the cheater he is, controlling asshole and only like woman two decades younger than himself

  20. Lmaooo why would it only happen to white people? Y’all weird. Always trying to make us all different and separated. Color means nothing

  21. I don't feel bad about not liking this show and being white as it appears lots of black folks don't like it either. Bad TV is bad TV, no matter who or what is on.
