Jeannie Mai – The Real

*On Wednesday, Oct. 7 on The Real, co-host Jeannie Mai makes an extremely personal statement – that she intends to take a submissive role in her marriage to fiancé Jeezy. She explains her reasons her to her surprised co-hosts.

Co-host Garcelle Beauvais recalls the time she posed for Playboy Magazine, and says that though it was “an honor,” since very few Black women appear on the cover, she wouldn’t do it again.

Perez Hilton joins the ladies to talk about his new book, TMI: My Life in Scandal, and reveals if there is anything he wouldn’t do for money!

And actor Joe Pantoliano drops in to visit, chat about his new movie From the Vine, and share how much he enjoyed the reunion with his Goonies castmates last spring – and that they’re all keeping in touch!

Jeannie: “Going Into My Marriage, I Want To Submit To My Man.”

Garcelle – It Was “An Honor” To Pose For Playboy, But She Wouldn’t Do It Again

What Wouldn’t Perez Hilton Do For Money?

Jeannie: “Going Into My Marriage, I Want To Submit To My Man.”

Jeannie Mai: So I’m gonna say right here, that I, Jeannie Mai, going in to my marriage – I want to submit to my man. Let me explain.

Garcelle Beauvais: Wow!

Jeannie: When I hear this definition like you just said, Adrienne, submitting has a negative connotation. 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.

Adrienne Houghton: Yeah. That’s not cool.

Jeannie: But what I’ve really learned in my life for my definition of marriage – I’m not saying what I want works for everybody – I’m saying for me. 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. So I make the decisions in my life. When I come home, I am – I like the idea that my man leads us. 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.” Like, it’s not that. 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. 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 that I love that my husband will be the man that leads. I like that structure in a marriage and I look forward to that because girls – it’s tiring being the boss of me. It’s tiring leading all the time in my life.

Garcelle: It is!

Adrienne: All the time!

Garcelle: Absolutely!

Adrienne: It’s tiring to be the boss all the time!

Jeannie: When I get home, I look forward to him!

[EDIT]

Jeannie: I grew up in a household – my mom – my mom has a very – she has a very strong force, and she took over a lot of decisions in the household, to the point that my dad, unless it was always going to be a fight, he was like, “You know what? Go ahead. Whatever you want to decide. Go ahead, and I’m just gonna do me.” And that caused a wedge. And I can have that tendency. I’m just saying for me I can have a tendency to follow like my mom, ‘cause it’s what I grew up in and I saw it. And I saw in my living space I would all of a sudden just wake up and go and make decisions without asking and checking in, so I am the fault that can cause an inequality because I am pulling in my habits from my old household to how I run my business today. And that is not okay. And I’m careful and aware of that today. So I’m just telling that to anybody else who didn’t tell me that when I could have learned that before.

*The Aretha Franklin biopic “Respect,” starring Jennifer Hudson, has been pushed back to summer 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the second time the film has been delayed.

“Respect” is now moving from Jan. 15, 2021 to Aug. 13, 2021. 

We previously reported… Hudson has spoken out about the biopic, noting that she shared a special connection with Franklin. Before her passing in 2018, the music icon gave Hudson her blessing to play her on the big screen.

Directed by Broadway veteran Liesl Tommy, the film also stars Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Tituss Burgess, Marc Maron, Kimberly Scott, Saycon Sengbloh, Hailey Kilgore, Heather Headley, Skye Dakota Turner, Tate Donovan and Mary J. Blige.

Months after filming on the project wrapped, Hudson said this of Franklin: “I still feel like she’s in me, I really do. I just hope to meet her requests. You think you respect Aretha, but once you see the film and you learn her story, you can’t help but to have a newfound respect for her.”

She also had this to say about her personal connection with the Queen of Soul, “I still have the text chains, so every now and then I look back at them. The last time I spoke to her was Aug. 8, [2018,] and I can honestly say she sang until her last breath.”

In related news, filming on National Geographic’s Genius: Aretha starring Cynthia Enrivo has been halted after a background actor tested positive for COVID-19. The program is slated to debut in early 2021. 

When asked about the competing projects in an interview earlier this month, Hudson dropped some subtle shade, saying  “I know that Aretha was adamant that [her life] be a film. If it’s not a film, it’s nothing. I’m just honored that she picked me to play her.”

Wayne Brady Demands Social Media Platforms Do Better at Protecting Underage Girls [VIDEO]

*Wayne Brady is calling out social media networks to take more responsibility in protecting minors. 

Brady appeared on “The Talk”, and expressed his concern about platforms like Facebook and Instagram making it easy for perverted men to send inappropriate private messages to underage users. 

Brady recalled the experience of his 17-year-old daughter Maile, and how he and his ex-wife Mandie have been monitoring her social media accounts, ET reports.

“Mandie monitors Maile’s Instagram and social media because even when she’s near-grown—’cause she’ll be 18 in February, you are still a child, so we have to monitor that,” he said. “And these grown men see her dancing and whatnot, and they just slide in.”

Brady said Mandie once pretended to be their daughter and interacted with an older man.

“Mandie got on the line with one of them and was, you know, texting back and forth and he was talking slick, until he realized that it was her,” Brady said. “And then she’s like, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ And he’s like, ‘I just broke up with my girlfriend, and I just saw her.’ That doesn’t mean anything. You tell that to your cellmate when we put you in jail. You can talk all about your post-breakup relationship then.”

Brady then called for social media companies to do better at implementing tools for reporting and removing child sex predators.

“You can try to block a person’s account and report them for hate speech… you can report them for trying to be someone else, but in order to really get to them to say, hey, this person is saying something damning or showing images to a young woman or even to a woman who gets a salacious pic, all of the tap dancing you need to do to get that person reported shouldn’t happen,” Brady said. “If this is what social media is, make the tools available to deal with these reprehensible people.”

Scroll up and hear/watch Wayne Brady tell it via the clip above. 

Tune in to “The Talk” weekdays at 2 p.m. ET/PT on Global.

T.I.

*T.I. just can’t escape accusations that he’s a snitch. 

The rapper previously clapped back at critics of his appearance in an old Crime Stoppers commercial. In the clip, he says, “People call me Tip, but this is about another tip that can help our mothers, our sisters, our brothers and our fathers help get the perpetrators who commit crimes against them on the street.” He then provides a tip hotline and ensures callers identity will remain anonymous.

Funkmaster Flex Tip relived the moment when he mentioned the clip on Monday.

In an Instagram post, Flex used the  infamous Crime Stoppers video to insist the T.I. is a snitch. Check out his post below.

“Hahahah! Rappers that cooperate / testify for the police talk the loudest in social media!” he wrote on social media, Yahoo reports. “Why do informants always wanna have a voice after they cooperate? @ A rapper u think is an informant?”

Flex even referred to him as “McGruff the Crime Dog” for the Atlanta Crime Stoppers commercial. 

T.I. has yet to respond to Flex but he addressed the commercial while on Instagram Live over the summer, saying he has never offered information to law enforcement.

“Aye, and I’ma address this sh*t,” T.I began, while referencing his 2007 gun charge, for which he faced 20 years but served one year and a day. “I’ma address this sh*t too. All y’all n*ggas on there talkin’ ’bout a Crime Stoppers commercial and all that. Look, man. If I can get from up under 20 years for doing a drop, n*gga, you can’t convince no n*gga to snitch. If he was gon’ snitch, he was gon’ do that sh*t when he woke up, whether he watched the commercial or not.”
