Jeannie, who also currently works as a sideline correspondent on ABC’s Holey Moley, doesn’t even know where the fantasy casting came from.
“I love all you ladies, but no, that is literally, do you know when they say where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire? That was a complete rumor,” Jeannie said. “I haven’t talked to one person, my people haven’t talked to one person from Bravo, so that was a complete rumor that got made up.”
And yet, Kenya and The Real co-host Loni Love wouldn’t let things die, as they kept pushing Jeannie to consider Housewives. Jeannie wouldn’t budge and put things to bed once-and-for-all—even referencing The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Garcelle Beauvais in the process.
“The door is closed. It’s sealed. There wasn’t a door to begin with. It was a wall. There is no door,” Jeannie said. “I say that, just because it’s a lot of work. And even knowing Garcelle, I always ask her ‘How do you get your mind in the place of going in to shoot and you’re not ready for what might come at you? And she tells me too, it’s a full-time job.”
