Jeannie Mai dished on spending her first Thanksgiving with boyfriend Jeezy on The Real on Monday, December 2. The rapper took his girlfriend to his family’s gathering for the holiday and she shared details about their time together with her cohosts and the audience.
So your man took you home for Thanksgiving. Jeannie, how was it?” Loni Love asked. “It was an unforgettable, surreal moment. It was the first time that we obviously spent Thanksgiving together, and to be able to have an intimate dinner with his family … his family is beautiful. They’re all such lovely people and they’re fun,” Jeannie explained.
During the couple’s time in Atlanta, they visited at-risk youths on behalf of Jeezy’s Street Dreamz foundation. “This season is about counting our blessings … and to always give back. While in Atlanta I joined @jeezy to support his @streetdreamzfoundation as they continue to serve the community. Thank you Turning Point Group Homes for letting us spend our Thanksgiving with you. PS. Kids, We all know who won the dance battle,” Jeannie captioned an Instagram photo of them posing with the children.
Jeannie discussed the responsibility she feels about being in an interracial relationshipduring an appearance on Big Boy on Monday, September
“I think when you look at the word ‘interracial,’ you should really look at it as ‘interresponsible.’ It is a responsibility when you date outside of your race to learn about that culture, because not everybody’s experience is the same. When he [Jeezy] steps into my house he takes off his shoes, he knows how Vietnamese people do it. When I met him I was like, ‘I want to go to Hawkinsville [Georgia]. Show me exactly this yellow house that you grew up in, and how did you start your business and how did you understand how to make a dollar.’ I actually loved it,” she said.
