On Friday, news broke that Jeannie Mai is divorcing her husband of ten years, Freddy Harteis. Now, The Real co-host is speaking out.
In a taping of Monday's show, Mai said, “To this day, I swear, he’s the best man I know. I married him because he’s like my dad; very loyal, very compassionate, so funny…an awesome guy. In our 13 years of being together there were never any lies, no betrayal, no cheating, nothing." She continued, "So I want to say to you ladies, you guys have known from season one, I’m always honest about things we struggle through. I was real…sometimes too real for everyone to have an opinion..but it took us time. You guys are so supportive and I love our Real fam and friends out there who know that it’s not about taking sides, it’s about loving what you go through." Well said, Jeannie.
We are sending our thoughts out to Jeannie during this difficult time. You can watch her full statement below:
