In The Latest Entertainment News Of Jada Pinkett Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith is amidst a press tour to promote her new book, “Worthy.” On October 14, the acclaimed actress and musician engaged in a TalkShopLive stream in partnership with Good Housekeeping, where she discussed a range of topics with her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
During the conversation, a fan inquired about “Red Table Talk,” the popular show featuring Jada, Banfield-Norris, and daughter Willow Smith. The series had been canceled by Facebook Watch in April. In response, Jada revealed, “The Red Table is coming back. We are in the works of a situation right now. So next year.”
Jada went on to explain,
“We could not do the Red Table while I was writing this book and while Willow was on her music journey, so we have decided to come back next year.”
“Red Table Talk” initially debuted in 2018, running for five seasons with 129 episodes. It featured a plethora of interviews with notable figures such as Gabrielle Union, Tiffany Haddish, August Alsina, Toni Braxton, Kid Cudi, Wale, Ciara, T.I., Snoop Dogg, and more. The show, which also saw appearances from Will and Jaden Smith, gained immense popularity. In 2021, a spinoff of “Red Table Talk” was introduced, hosted by Gloria, Emily, and Lili Estefan.
In a 2019 interview with NPR, Jada discussed the show’s inception, saying,
“I guess at this point in my life, I’ve really been doing a lot of interior work. I just realized that, in part of my growth, the women and the people who had the courage to be very transparent with me with certain aspects of their journey really, really helped my journey tremendously.”
“I was like, ‘Why don’t we talk about this more often?’ I really want to create a conversation where people don’t have to feel like they’re alone. And whatever pieces individuals can take with them to make whatever changes they might feel are necessary for more happiness, more joy, more peace — I want to be part of that journey.”
