Jeannie Mai shares her self-isolating experience on air, following the continuous spread of the coronavirus.


The "The Real" co-host is letting folks know what she's been up to during this period of social distancing and self-isolation. Jeannie has joined the many celebrities commenting online on their status as they restrict their movements to their houses only.

The 42-year-old is having the time of her life with her partner Jeezy and has moved to his place. Mai's house isn't empty either. Her mother, Mama Mai, is enjoying the space in her daughter's home, self-isolating alone.

The lovers are spending this time being intimate, and the onscreen star revealed that her man is an "inspiring" individual.

She mentioned that they have been busy looking for ways to be useful in the community and to help relieve the scare and stress amid the pandemic. For Mai, her conviction is to grow stronger with her man regardless of the situation of the world. She said:

"Jeezy and I looked at each other at this time of the Quarantine like, 'yup, if we can do this, we are gangsters.' We're doing amazing."


Mai won't appear on the show, "The Real" until further notice.  The show went on a break leaving other co-hosts such as Loni Love and Tia Mowry Hardict to face other businesses. Mia feels that it is such a perfect timing and that a continued shoot is not guaranteed.

Though critics haven't slowed down in trolling the onscreen star, recently, she received backlash for being Chinese


She has also taken to Instagram to pour out her thoughts while giving the recommended advice to staying healthy during the current global health crisis. Fans are aware that Jeezy isn't the only person that Mai has been romantically linked to over the years.

She was first married to Freddy Harteis, for about a decade before meeting her knight in shining armor whom she's head over heels in love with. In reflecting on her past relationship, she said:

"My own standards were low...I'm not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do."


The TV personality now has a love story with a man that shares similar experiences with her. Jeezy was also in a long term relationship before meeting Mai.

During last year's Thanksgiving, the fashion expert showed her fans how she was accepted into the rapper's family.

They not only welcomed her warmly but also made a special delicacy. At the end of the day, Mai seemed happy as she stood next to her man in a family photo shoot.

Though critics haven't slowed down in trolling the onscreen star, recently, she received backlash for being a Chinese. Some hurled insults at her with the excuse of her coming from China where the coronavirus started from. 

Nonetheless, the media personality has continued to thrive, especially with the support and of her man.
