Q&A with Jeannie

Even if you’re already a fan of Jeannie Mai, we bet there’s a lot you don't know! Jeannie sat down to answer your questions, and she wasn't afraid to keep it real. Find out what she had to say!

What clothing item is a must in every woman’s closet?
I love women way too much to have just one clothing item, so the top three items are: A slim-fit blazer (in order to dress up or dress down statement pieces), a pair of Wacoal undergarments (because they are better than Spanx, quote me!), and sexy kitten heels (they are demure and dainty for every woman's size).

What are the items you always have in your purse?
Nipple covers, floss, eyelash glue, some type of food, $20 cash for tip that I'm not allowed to touch.  

What do you think is your least appealing feature?
When I get ha-ngry (hungry and angry).

What do you think is your most appealing feature?
My brain.

Do you have an embarrassing drunk story?
I was 22 and I remember getting so drunk on a first date during happy hour that, before the sun went down at 5p.m., I was already puking in the guy’s car. I couldn't make the window and got it everywhere, including the stick shift. The next day I went to the record company where he worked and cleaned out his car with paper towels and 409. I would have rather had a 50-mile walk of shame. 

Have you ever indulged in a catfight?
Yeah, when I was a kid I got in a lot, but they weren't catfights — they were bitch brawls. 

What’s the cheesiest compliment that you have ever received?
That I look like I could be a freak in bed. 

What is the wildest thing you have ever done?
Took off to Hawaii to chase a boy 10 years older than me, without telling my parents… when I was 16.

What was the worst date you have been on?
Before the dinner even started, the guy asked to take pictures of me to send to his family who were fans. The date ended there.

Name an expensive thing that you bought and now regret buying.
A condo in Harrisburg, PA, thinking we would spend more time with the family out there, but once I realized Target was the most fashionable place I could shop... I've been there one time in the past two years.
