Jeannie Mai is making sure she isn’t forgotten. The 41-year-old television personality, sadly forced to drop out of Season 29 of “Dancing With the Stars” due to emergency surgery this year, has been busy on her Instagram, today posting a fresh and stunning shot. Jeannie, best known for hosting “How Do I Look?” made major headlines during the competition series as potentially life-threatening condition epiglottis forced her straight to hospital. After losing 15 pounds following surgery, Jeannie is fighting back better than ever. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo shared to Mai’s Instagram today Wednesday. Jeannie, who recently revealed she “nearly died” and was “literally gasping for air” ahead of her surgery, has now been sharing photos of her recovery journey. Alongside a workout shot showing “The Real” host putting herself through her resistance paces, fans have seen Jeannie stunning in a slinky, cream-colored, and no-bra dress this month.
Jeannie’s photo today kept it fun, edgy, and definitely unusual, with a little knotted leather thrown in.
Jeannie’s snap showed her indoors and looking a little cheeky. The brunette was bent over forward while rocking an unusual, sky-blue top in leather, with the cinched waist and knotted detail here showing off the star’s slender silhouette. Jeannie wore classy hoop earrings as she shot the camera a direct gaze – and the caption was motivational AF.
“Don’t manage their behavior. Manage their expectations,” Mai told her 2.4 million followers. The “Hello Hunnay Show” host quickly racked up likes. See more photos and her shocking reveal below.
Jeannie, who was partnered with Brandon Armstrong on “DWTS,” this month opened up about her November ordeal.
“What I was dancing with was a numb neck because I couldn’t feel anything when it was really closing up,” she said. “My throat was 60 percent closed. It was numb, but it was closed.”
“Hey, I’m going to go to bed at like 9:30,” she recalled telling fiancé Jeezy: “I feel terrible. Please pray for me because I think that if I don’t make it through this I don’t know if I’m going to make it through camera blocking.'”

Jeannie made headlines for her power workout shot, and not just because it showed off the figure. The star revealed that after “3 weeks of being sick and unable to eat,” that she’d lost 15 pounds of muscle.
“Although I’m incredibly thankful to be back to 100% health, I gotta be honest..this pandemic and my setback left me feeling unmotivated and depressed.”
