Jada Pinkett Smith Talks Reconciliation with Gabrielle Union After 17 Years
“Extra's” Tanika Ray sat down with actress Jada Pinkett Smith in West Hollywood today to talk about her new Facebook Watch talk show, “Red Table Talk.” Jada hosts the show along with her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and her 17-year-old daughter Willow.
Jada says the show is deeply personal, telling Tanika, “I have a really touching episode with Gabrielle Union. We haven't been on the best of terms for 17 years, and we have a reconciliation.” Jada continued, “When the producers said we want to do a girlfriends show… her name just kept coming up… it just couldn't be anything else." When Tanika asked if the beef was over, Jada said, “Oh, definitely. We don't even know how it started!”
Jada, who has been married to Will Smith for 20 years, also revealed to Tanika, “Our Mother's Day episode happens to be one of my favorites. I sit down and talk to Sheree, which is Will's first wife... When we get to the red table, you hear about the stuff that didn't go so well! We talk about our 23 years together in this thing called family."
“Red Table Talk” premieres on Facebook Watch on Monday, May 7.
