Jeannie Mai Says She & Jeezy Are Having 2 Weddings

“The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai and rapper and activist Jeezy will be saying their “I dos” twice!

While on Access, Jeannie Mai revealed while she and her fiancé will have two weddings.

She first said:

“My mom being Vietnamese wants a very Vietnamese traditional wedding. She wants Jay, my fiancé, to wear the Vietnamese garb and to do some of the Vietnamese practices like the tea ceremony.”

She added,

“I obviously want a fun throwdown with pizza afterward. I want to have a couple of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ dances in our reception. So we’ve decided that we’re gonna have two weddings. we’re gonna have one the way me and Jay want and then we’ll have one for Mama Mai, just cause if we don’t we’re gonna hear it for the rest of our lives.”

She went on to confirm that she’ll also have two dresses.

“Absolutely. If not, more. I’m a fashion girl so this is my chance to go out there and have fun. Jay loves fashion too, so I’m sure no only will there be wedding dresses, we’re gonna have the after-party outfit, the after hours outfits. We want to really have fun with this because this is our big day.” 

Jeannie Mai previously received lots of criticism after she said she plans on being submissive to Jeezy after they get married. She said during an episode of The Real: 

“The actual definition of submit is to accept or yield to a superior force or to the authority or will of another person. I’m gonna say right here, that I Jeannie Mai, going into my marriage, I want to submit to my man.”

She later responded to criticism and said:

“Well for me, submit does not mean that you are lower or less important than your man. Of course, [Jeezy] and I respect each other very equally. What I mean is in my work life, in my actual life, I own my businesses, I run my team, I make all of the decisions and I lead entirely in the outside of my life.”

She added,

“So in my home, I want my man to lead. I want him to take in what I would like and what my wishes are, what my dreams are, and then incorporate it, making the overall decision that’s best for our vision together.”

“Girl, I am 41, I don’t care what kind of pushback I get from other women out there. This is my life and you know coming out of divorce and also making a major decision to marry again after being blessed to fall in love and finding such a beautiful person, I want to be very clear and open about how our life can be so that we make sure that our vision is aligned and that we both are empathetic to each other and know that this is the structure we’re going into.”
