Further adding she clarified, “Let me explain. When I hear this definition … submitting has a negative connotation. It means that you are less important, you are lower than that person that you’re submitting to. It usually can be like, you know, referenced as somebody who works lower than you and that’s not what I’m referring to here.”
The How Do I Look? the host revealed that she’s “a very dominant woman” who runs her own business and teams. Also, she likes to make every “decisions” in her career and other areas of her life. But, she finds the idea of coming home to a man who “leads” their household amusing.
Mai said, “That doesn’t mean that in this case Jay makes all the decisions for us. That doesn’t mean that when he says, ‘How are we spending our money?’ or ‘Where are we moving?’ that I just say, ‘Yes, sir’ or ‘Yes, your honor,’ Like, it’s not that,” she said. “It’s a, ‘You know what? I think that we would do best here, I want to do this,’ and he takes the decision. He formulates it with our overall vision, and he leads us and I like to submit to that.”
The Dancing With The Star, contestant continued, “I don’t want to lead in our household and in our marriage. I want him to lead, and I have all the essence of what I bring as a wife to make that decision, but that I love that my husband will be the man that leads. I like that structure in a marriage and I look forward to that because, girls — it’s tiring being the boss of me. It’s tiring leading all the time in my life.”
Family Role In ‘How Do I Look?’ Host Decision
Mai even revealed how she had formed thus opinion on life—acknowledging the fact that her family had played a significant role—further indicating that her family upbringing has played a part in her overall decision.
Giving the example of her, she explained, that her mother was “a powerful force” and “took over a lot of decisions in the household,”. As a result, her father allowed her mother to lead. Which resulted, “causing a wedge” between her parents and she too “have that tendency” to take over the decision-making as her mother did.
She confessed, “I saw in my living space, I would all of a sudden just wake up and go and make decisions without asking and checking in,”. She continued, “So, I am the fault that can cause an inequality because I am pulling in my habits from my old household to how I run my business today. And that is not OK, and I’m careful and aware of that today.”
