The Real is back, well sort of. The ladies had an episode that was filmed at home, and it was focused on the big news — Jeannie Mai and rapper Jeezy’s surprising engagement.
Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Houghton, and Amanda Seales listened to Jeannie as she spoke about the romantic and quarantined-style proposal that took place in Jeezy’s Califonia mansion.
The fashionista, who was married to ex-husband Freddy Harteis for ten years, got emotional while talking about becoming Mrs. Jay Jenkins.
She said: “I would say that that personal time, for anyone that’s been divorced, you guys, if you have friends who’ve been divorced, it is one of the most traumatic things that can happen. You feel like you failed. You feel embarrassed for all the people that were there at your wedding. Then you get jaded! I remember telling you guys, and I think I said I’m not getting married again. And I’m sure if you go back in episodes, you’ll see times I made jokes about marriage. The thing I think that saved me is that I never gave up on love. I never gave up on love because it’s so omnipresent. It’s so healing that the only reason I recognize healthy love with Jay today is because I took that time to love myself.”
She added: “Two years, I took away from divorce, and the divorce hurt. People change. People behave in ways you didn’t expect, and you see things in people, and then it makes you completely not able to trust anybody after that. You see, the partner you slept with and shared a life with a certain way, and then things change, again, because of hurt feelings, not because people are bad people but because it’s just hurt.”
One fan had this reaction: “I feel this way with failed relationships. I can’t even imagine a divorce. I’m only interested in marrying a man who wants to build through thick and thin. Cheer up, honey.”
Another commenter stated: That was so REAL! I cried with you, and I am glad for you! Blessings on your new beginnings 🙏🏼❤️
This person claimed: “Amanda’s face stays miserable, especially when Jeannie talks, and it’s SO distracting. Looks like she’s incapable of being happy for others makes her look bitter about love. Why did they hire her, it was the worst decision for the show. Her negative energy is trying.”
The power couple seems happy.
