Jeannie Mai believes she has found the love of her life in Atlanta rapper Jeezy, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins, 42.

The Real co-host gushed about Jeezy in Wednesday's episode.

"I am not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do," Mai, 40, told her co-hosts, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon Houghton and Tamera Mowry as well as guest-host Tisha Campbell.

Mai, who broke into tears, said her standards were low for her marriage to Freddy Harteis, 42.

"We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum," she said before adding she doesn't place all of the blame on her ex.

She suggested that there was an element of jealousy in their marriage and that her TV success may have made Harteis feel inadequate.

"When [Harteis] 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."

She said it wasn't until she met Jeezy that she realized she deserved more.

"I didn't even know until my new relationship that something as basic..." Mai said as she broke down crying.

"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," Mai said of the "Put On" rapper. "He was like 'are you kidding?' I want to see you off.'"

"You can blame [your exes] but just be mindful of your standards," Mai cautioned the audience.

Mai said she upgraded herself when she met Jeezy, a Libra who has a history of failed relationships with women.
