Jeannie Mai has compared her new relationship with rapper Jeezy to her marriage to her ex-husband, Freddie Harteis.
“My own standards were low,” Jeannie told her co-hosts Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon Houghton, and Tamera Mowry. Guest-host Tisha Campbell was also seated at the table.
“We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum,” she continued.
“I am not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do… When [Harteis] said things like ‘good for you’ or ‘that’s cool,’ I’m like, that’s great, he supports me! That, to me, is my standard of support.”
While talking, Jeannie became emotional:
“I’m not crying to feel bad. It was just so touchy. But even something as basic as like at his birthday party, he left his own birthday to drive me to the airport. He was like, ‘are you kidding?’ I want to see you off.'”
You can blame [your exes], but just be mindful of your standards,” she said to the audience.
