“I think a lot of women need to hear — and not saying it is right for you, but you also need to understand — when you give power to somebody, that’s also a power move itself. He is not going to have power if I don’t give that to him,” she explained.

“I have that power to be able to share that with him. To say, ‘I want you to lead. I want you to do what you do well as a man that I am trusting you to do. Take in my thoughts, my wishes, my dreams and then compute that into a vision for us that I can feel safe and secure knowing that you can lead us,’” she continued.

“By the way, he wouldn’t have that if I wasn’t a powerful woman to be able to give him that. I just want women to remind themselves that you are the powerful being and a big part of the picture if you are able to do that in your household. There’s a beautiful dance that can come out of it, and it’s no different than what Brandon [Armstrong] and I do every week on the dance floor. If I don’t give him the ability to lead me, you are not going to see what you saw tonight.”

Here’s what she originally said that caused some debate and conversation online.

Jeannie Mai Says She'll 'Submit' to Fiance Jeezy When They Get Married

Jeannie Mai is opening up about her relationship with Jeezy.

During the Wednesday (October 7) episode of her show The Real, the 41-year-old talk show host said she plans on being submissive in her marriage.

“I want to submit to my man. When I hear this definition…submitting has a negative connotation,” Jeannie explained. “It means that you are less important, you are lower than that person that you’re submitting to. It usually can be like, you know, referenced as somebody who works lower than you, and that’s not what I’m referring to here.”

“I’m a very dominant woman. I own my business, I lead my teams, I played my own manager, my own publicist, my own lawyer when I didn’t have money to have those people,” Jeannie continued. “So, I make the decisions in my life…When I come home, I like the idea that my man leads us.”

Jeannie went on to explain that this doesn’t mean she’ll have to ask the 43-year-old rapper for permission, but rather she wants him to take the lead.

“That doesn’t mean that in this case Jay makes all the decisions for us. That doesn’t mean that when he says, ‘How are we spending our money?’ or ‘Where are we moving?’ that I just say, ‘Yes sir,’ or ‘Yes, your honor.’ It’s not that,” Jeannie said. “It’s a, ‘You know what? I think that we would do best here, I want to do this,’ and he takes the decision, he formulates it with our overall vision, and he leads us and I like to submit to that.”

Jeannie went on, “I don’t want to lead in our household and in our marriage. I want him to lead, and I have all the essence of what I bring as a wife to make that decision, but I love that my husband will be the man that leads.”

Jeannie said she came to this realization because “it’s tiring being the boss of me,” adding, “It’s tiring leading all the time in my life.”

Jeezy proposed to Jeannie in April
after dating for close to two years.

The Real's Jeannie Mai is Engaged to Jeezy!

Jeannie Mai is getting married!

The 41-year-old The Real co-host announced that she and Jeezy are engaged.

The 42-year-old rapper proposed to Jeannie back on Friday, March 27 during a romantic night at home in Los Angeles.

Jeezy originally planned on proposing to Jeannie later in April during a planned trip to Vietnam, but due to restricted travel from the ongoing health pandemic, he popped the question at home instead.

“Jeannie and Jay were set for a trip to Vietnam this April. What Jeannie didn’t know is that Jay was planning to propose,” Jeannie‘s rep shared with People. “Instead, Jay decided to bring Vietnam to Jeannie with a surprise quarantine date night in his home filled with Vietnamese food and decor.”

Jeannie and Jeezy first met when he made an appearance on The Real back in 2018. They started quietly dating a few months later, and went public in August 2019.

Congrats to the happy couple!

“My own standards were low,” she explained.

“We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum,” she went on to say before addressing her ex, Freddy Harteis.

“I am not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do…when [Freddy] said things like ‘good for you’ or ‘that’s cool,’ I’m like, that’s great, he supports me! That to me is my standard of support.”

“I didn’t even know until my new relationship that something as basic,” she said before beginning to cry.

“I’m not crying to feel bad. It was just so touchy. But even something as basic as like at his birthday party, he left his own birthday to drive me to the airport,” she said of Jeezy.

“He was like ‘are you kidding?’ I want to see you off.’”

“You can blame [your exes] but just be mindful of your standards…sometimes being alone in that time I took for myself, was my upgrade.”
