Jeannie Mai addressed the news of her divorce during Monday’s taping of “The Real,” thanking the show’s fans for their love and support.
“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,” Mai said at the table alongside her co-hosts.
“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.”
Of course, Loni Love, the comedian of the panel, had to add a little humor: “I’m taking Freddie’s side though.”
