Jeannie Mai Gets Dragged Over T.I. Virginity Comments
T.I. has been all over the news for the revelation that he forces his daughter to get her hymen checked every year. He’s been called everything from “abusive” to a “bad parent” to “possessive” over his daughter. Everyone has criticized his comments, especially the fact he put his daughter’s virginity all out for the world to talk about.
One person, though, has come to his defense. That would be Jeannie Mai, who spoke on it on The Real:
“I support what T.I. Is doing because I understand how hard it must be to communicate with an opposite gendered daughter, especially in this time,” Jeannie said on the show.
“Especially what he must have seen and known, you know? Of what boys are like. And for me, I was a very wild girl, I didn’t like rules, I rebelled a lot…Clearly he is super concerned about today’s world and everything, I would just say, ‘What is it that you are concerned about when it comes to the breaking of the hymen or the fact that she’s having sex? Is it the STDs?’ Is it that she doesn’t understand what love is? Does he need to know who the boys are? Why doesn’t he trust her? Whatever it is, he needs to speak it with her.”
The defense doesn’t really make sense and the world is ready to jump down her throat.
I can’t believe Jeannie Mai is siding with TI. Is it bc he’s friends with Jeezy? Like what the hell she sounded crazy trying to explain why too. How is this of all things going over her head?!
As the show was airing with guest host Amanda Seales however, it became increasingly clear that there was trouble afoot and Blac Chyna was nowhere to be found. By the end of the show, cohost Loni Love tried to play off Chy’s absence by saying she “took too long to get dressed” and they had to end the show without her.
“The Real’s” social media team also made light of Chyna’s absence with a photo of their hosting couch completely empty.
It’s been three years since Tamar Braxton‘s unceremonious exile from hit daytime TV show “The Real.” Since then, she’s been on quite a monster reality TV run, seemingly having moved on. The same could be said for The Real, as they’ve won daytime Emmy Awards and seem to be perfectly fine with their situation, too. Leave it up to Wendy Williams, though, to stir the pot.
On Wednesday’s show, she asked Tamar about her time on the show and she responded with this:
“Here’s the thing. I don’t want to be anybody’s marketing tool this season, no shade. I just wish everybody well and I feel like sometimes God has to move you out of situations before you become more toxic to yourself….What if I was in a situation where I’m doing ‘Braxton Family Values’ and very stressed and then I’m doing this other show where people are being catty behind my back. What kind of person would I be right now sitting on this couch? I wouldn’t be focused, I wouldn’t be ready for my transformation, I wouldn’t be ready for my elevation and that’s where I’ve gotta go. I’ve got to go up and up and up.”
As you might recall, Tamar used to be the fifth host of the show, but she made her exit surrounded by controversy, according to Madame Noire. She was fired from the show in 2016, then rumors started to swirl that there was tension between her and the other co-hosts, with Braxton accusing them of setting her up to be let go. The current hosts of the show, Adrienne Bailon, Tamera Mowry-Housley, and Jeannie Mai have denied Braxton’s accusations and they say they were just as shocked as Braxton about the news that she was being let go.
Meanwhile, Loni alluded on The Breakfast Club that Braxton’s ex-husband and manager Vincent Herbert had something to do with Tamar’s termination.
“Something happened and he knows what happened. He’s trying to save face, I believe, because he knows something had happened, either some deal that messed up, I don’t know,” said Loni. “It wasn’t like they had a meeting, we tip toed to the office, we don’t have that type of power. We got no power.”
Braxton has since apologized to her former colleagues over all the hoopla, so it could be very likely that she appears on the show for season six.
The Game has some explaining to do with The Realco-hosts after they brought up that one time he obliterated Tomi Lahren on Instagram.
Back in February, The Game slammed Lahren after she made jokes about 21 Savage getting detained by I.C.E. He went on to call her a “c*m gargling, microwaved skinned, 90 year old white man body having slore.
The hosts of The Real thought this might’ve been too much, especially since he sexualized Lahren over an immigration issue.
They challenged him on the show, and this is what The Game had to say…
