Jeannie Mai, one of the co-hosts on The Real, shared some personal information on her divorce with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Freddy Harteis. During her stop on The Breakfast Club recently, Mai revealed something that was quite embarrassing for both her and Freddy.
According to Mai, one of the primary causes of their separation was money and ego. However, she noted they never separated on bad terms, but “love,” is a word they’re learning to understand now.
Mai used one of Freddy’s quotes that he said to her on more than one occasion. He told her that it’s impossible to know who someone really is until they don’t get something they want; that’s when they reveal their true identity.
Ironically, that very same lesson opened her eyes to her shaky marriage with Freddy. Jeannie explained that it was a great aphorism, but the tragedy of it is that it applied most to the person she loves.

Moreover, the hosts asked her if he was unfaithful, and Angela Yee stated that he’s currently expecting a child with another woman. “Yeah, and interestingly with somebody before we divorced, they were already expecting.”
According to Jeannie, she never actually sat down and did the math to determine if he was, in fact, unfaithful, but after she spoke about it with ladies from The Real, they pointed out the obvious date overlap.
Freddy allegedly got a woman pregnant before they even separated. However, some people online have questioned the story, suggesting that Freddy hasn’t revealed his side of the story yet.
Previously, Jeannie was relatively reserved when speaking about her separation, keeping explanations vague and carefully worded. Now, her revelations have been far more insidious.
