Loni Love Introduces New Boyfriend After Getting Caught In The Jeannie Mai & Freddy Harteis Divorce Drama

The Real star managed to her herself in trouble with the internet after supposedly throwing major shade at one of her co-hosts, Jeannie Mai.

As we all know by now, Mai and her estranged husband, Freddy Harteis, seem to have an odd dynamic at the moment. The talk show host has even questioned the timing of Freddy’s then-pregnant girlfriend's conception. (It, uh, does seem to be cutting it close if you crunch the official numbers, we guess.)

“Yeah, and interestingly with somebody before we divorced, they were already [expecting]. And you know what's funny, I was never really the type to really sit there and actually calculate and do math...,” she confessed. “But then, our Real fam comes in and goes, 'Wait, when you announce you met this person at this time and now you're together having the baby at this time, Jeannie just came out with you guys getting divorced at this time,' that's funny!"

Jeannie and Freddy split back in October 2017. It seems that the divorce plunged into messy territory pretty quickly.

“It turned when, I would say, when money got involved and ego,” Jeannie said. “This is where you learn how things change. People say money changes people. So does ego and so does social media. And so does the press. I think that all of that mixed in between — you really gotta keep yourself grounded.”

Last week, Jeannie Mai’s husband, Freddy Harteis, announced to the world that he and girlfriend Linsey Toole had welcomed a baby girl named Emersyn Rose.

Harteis shared a photo and captioned it: “Fathers: Be your daughters’ 1st love. Open doors for her, pull her seat out and talk to/treat her with the utmost respect…Set expectations on how a man should treat a lady, and she’ll never settle for anything less.”

Life just took on a whole new meaning. Would never believe a little girl could melt my heart like this. I love you Emersyn Rose. Thank you God for trusting me with this little life.

To the surprise of many, Loni Love commented and congratulated him on his new addition.  

"Everything works out for a reason," she reportedly wrote on a post Freddy published, welcoming the newborn. "I wish you the best and welcome to the world Emersyn Rose."

Many were baffled by this move, and saw it as unloyal because of  Jeannie and Freddy‘s divorce drama. 

“I hope you heard her speak on the fact that Jennie is contesting a prenup she signed, damn people sure do change 😩😩😩 Don’t take everything on TV at face value darling,” one wrote.

Another shared, “She has no business publicly speaking about a marriage she had no part of. It wasn’t her marriage nor does it involve her money. Let Freddy speak for himself if he’s man enough. She looks like a desperate fool living in Jeanie’s shadow.”

A naysayer claimed: “Loni wow, you’re so shady and bitter on the show constantly talking down to the others. Where is your girl code?! This message of “congrats” could and should have been done in private,” a different commenter dished.

“She literally has every right the 2nd Jennie insinuated Freddy was already cheating.. and nothing is more pathetic & desperate than speaking out on a tv show when you know the other person doesn’t have that platform to defend himself. Why do you think her fellow hosts still follow him, don’t act like you know the whole story based off one bitter person’s statements,” a fourth quipped.

But maybe Loni is just super loved-up and happy though? In any case, she advised the nay-sayers to butt out of her business. She then changed topics and shared a snap with her new man, actor James Welsh.


 So did Loni Love break girl code by congratulating Jeannie Mai’s (estranged) husband on his new baby?
