Jeannie Mai’s ex-husband’s girlfriend issued a stern warning and threat to “The Real” co-host: keep his name out of her mouth from here on out.
The girlfriend was referring to the Friday episode where Mai, 40, opened up to her co-hosts Adrienne Bailon Houghton, Loni Love and guest host NeNe Leakes about having to pay alimony to ex-husband Freddy Harteis.
“I was married to someone who had more money than me, but because I was the stronger earner and we lived in California,” she says, “a shocking thing slapped me in the face when we divorced and I had to end up paying him my earnings.”
Mai said it was a painful lesson on how she needs to start “looking out for myself.”
The episode was shared on “The Real’s” Instagram page which incited Harteis’ girlfriend Linsey Toole to go volcanic on Mai.
“Looking out for YOURSELF is why you’re STILL miserable,” Toole wrote in the comment section of the show’s IG post.
“Your complete focus on YOURSELF is why you’re DIVORCED. YOURSELF being the most important thing to you in the entire world is why you keep making up LIES for MORE attention. MOVE ON.”
Toole also went off on Mai about how she routinely manufactures drama in order to keep her brand name in the airwaves and to garner sympathy from her 1.3M Instagram fans.
“Every week you got some new dramatic story so that you can [get] more pity and more attention. How many more lies are you going to make up before you are satisfied? Freddy and I are both working our butts off to have what we have. Not because you gave anything. Freddy walked away from 1 MILLION dollars so he could finally give our family peace. And God has blessed him fruitfully in doing so! Let it go. Stop trying to make up things for people to feel sorry for you.
“You made Freddy signed [sic] to keep his mouth closed. I didn’t sign for this very reason,” Toole wrote.
Toole then issued a very strong warning to Mai to cease and desist from uttering her boyfriend’s name again.
“I knew you would come back at his throat again. I will speak the truth Jeanie [sic]. I’m pre-warning that I will tell what really happened if you continue to publicly lie and humiliate Freddy!” Sharing a video from the episode on her Instagram Stories, Toole wrote, “Ratings must be down again. Waiting on that alimony check.”
Mai has not commented on Toole’s Instagram explosion as of Sunday morning (March 3).
Mai and Harteis announced they were beginning divorce proceedings in October 2017.
