Disgruntled Much? Jeannie Mai Shuts Down Live On 'The Real' — 'It's Just So Hard For Me To Care About This'
Jeannie Mai is having a hard time acting like she cares! On January 16, The Real star broke character from her usual peppy self, and shared how she actually feels about her show's gossip segment.
Jeannie and her cohosts sat around their famous round table and spoke about relationships during their "Girl Chat" segment
In the midst of the conversation, Jeannie dropped the bombshell, “It's just so hard for me to care about this.” The outburst came just one day after she and cohost Tamera Mowry went on a rant against gossip, which fans called out as hypocritical given the nature of their own broadcast. And of course, the backdrop for that conversation was a report that Jeannie has been paid significantly less than Tamera for her time on The Real.

Jeannie’s comment happened as the other hosts were discussing exes. Cohost Adrienne Bailon said people should be happy for the person they love no matter if they're both in a relationship or not.
Despite her remark, Jeannie insisted she’s "so happy" for her ex-husband Freddie Harteis, whom she split from in 2017. She's happy that he is a father and that he found love again. "But it just sucks to me that the divorce made the relationship and the love ugly," she said.
"I want to wish Freddie the best. I want to him to live that life that i couldn't provide...it's hard to care" the 40-year-old said.
