Jeezy and Jeannie Mai's divorce is one of pop culture's biggest stories right now, and it was before they even said anything about it. In the weeks since that news broke, the two have spoken, albeit briefly in the rapper's case, about their split after two years of marriage. Moreover, the television personality has been much more vocal about her feelings and thought process throughout all this. For example, she recently stopped by The Talk on Friday (October 20) to discuss what's going through her head these days and what her next steps are. Furthermore, the former The Real co-host expressed wishes to define herself more individually in the aftermath of this breakup.

"We know it’s a difficult time for you right now…the weight of divorce is heavy, how are you doing right now?" asked the program's co-host Akbar Gbaja-Biamila. "You know, I’m focused on healing," Jeannie Mai responded concerning her divorce from Jeezy. "I had to really turn off all my digital devices over the past few weeks to just really get that silence, so I could just feel my feelings, you know. I have learned I have to be mine before I am anyone else’s. So I’m really working on finding my voice."

I am committed to assuring she feels the love and stability she deserves."
