An old video has surfaced of former cohost Tamar Braxton roasting Jeannie Mai for saying she would only date black men "on the side." The clip went viral just days after The Real host went public with her relationship with rapper Jeezy.
Jeannie, 40, made the controversial comments after Loni Love brought up the fact that she had dated black men in the past on their talk show.
"Love black guys. For me, dark meat on the side, white keeps me mean and lean. That's why I married white. That's what I like," the Holey Moley host said.
When Loni and Tamar questioned her about what she meant, Jeannie tried to reel it back.
"I really do think black men are attractive. I do," she said. "But what do you mean 'dark meat on the side?'" Loni pressed.
"That means honey ... you know what that means," Tamar responded to Loni. "What are you reading it as?" Jeannie inquired.
"How did you say it?" Tamar quipped back. "You like your main man to be white and your side piece to be black," she added.
"What I meant was I used to date black men because I think they're attractive, but what I decided to stick to because it just kept me happiest was my man Freddie, who happens to be white," Jeannie clarified.
