After admitting to gaining weight recently, Jeannie Mai proves she looks hotter than ever in a photo she recently shared.


If Jeannie Mai's latest photo is an indication, her recent efforts to gain weight are certainly paying off. 


Jeannie was candid about the fact that she consciously gained 17 pounds recently. While the timing of her weight gain coincided with her ex-husband’s announcement that his girlfriend was pregnant, Jeannie insisted she made the effort to put on pounds after she decided to free herself from thinking she looks better skinny. In a post she shared explaining her weight gain, she confessed,

“Staying 103 came from my self control to lose "chubby" teenage weight and a stressful idea that my body was built to look best "thin". As I'm nearing my 40s, I realize that I've been thru so much shit mentally and emotionally, why the hell should my body be forced to suffer (from my over controlling ways) too?”


Jeannie later disclosed she went on a new eating and training plan which eventually made her 17 pounds heavier. And she was pleased with it because it meant she was putting herself first.

“So far I'm 3 months of eating more, (clean protein and saying Yes to carbs!!), lifting heavy weights (best therapy ever!!) and truly loving all of Me. Not sure where I'm headed but I know I'm gonna look the best I've ever looked because Im spending quality time on ME.”


Two months since that post and Jeannie still has the glow of a sexier, curvier woman entering her 40’s. 

The 39-year-old ‘The Real’ co-host looked amazing flaunting her curves while riding a bicycle in her latest post. Dressed in a crop top and mini-shorts, she showcased her gorgeous summer body as she bid the season goodbye. 

“Summers almost ovahh. Ride or cry homies,” the star wrote but it was clear it wasn’t her who’s crying. Those days are long over since she divorced her husband of 10 years, Freddy Hartis, who has since moved on with another woman who’s currently carrying his child.


The divorce was amicable. In fact, it was Jeannie who pulled the plug on their marriage after realizing she and Freddy wanted different things. He wanted children and Jeannie didn’t.

Today, Jeannie is trying to get back into the dating scene but is wary of how dating works today. She told her co-hosts on her talk show that men have become hesitant to make the first move unlike before. She also noticed that men’s hesitations stem from the current climate where sexual assault scandals have been gaining attention. That being said, it may have to take more effort on Jeannie’s part to land a date with a man these days.  Here’s the clip from that discussion.
