Jada explains the true meaning behind her new Facebook series.
Jada Pinkett Smith's new Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk has been getting a lot of attention lately since it's really one of a kind. The show is hosted by Jada, her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris and her daughter Willow Smith. Jada says the show will be about discussing the internal feelings, rather than the external feelings that are taking place in society with the political happenings. “I just want to dive into issues of the heart," she tells Variety.
The 46-year-old mother of two will be having her show filmed in her own home and she admits she was skeptical of the idea at first. “For me, what it’s about is to create and fortify safe space and have really unfiltered conversations because right now, in this day and age, the world is changing so much, and we’re trying to figure out how we can change with it, what do our relationships look like, how are we supposed to be parenting our kids, what does it mean to be a woman?” she explains. “Now we have so many options — so many freedoms — and there are so many ideas that need to expand and grow. So really for us it was just creating a place where we have permission to talk through that and giving permission for others to do the same.”
The 10-episode series will air on Monday's starting today (May 7th). Some of the guests include Tiffany Haddish, Gabrielle Union, and her husband Will Smith’s first wife, Sheree. “To me, all of these movements are geared towards us redefining what it is to be a woman and hopefully getting to a place where it can be an autonomous definition — because not every woman is the same,” she says. “I just feel like these movements are moving us into the direction of each individual woman having to ask herself what does it mean to be a woman for her? There’s no one answer.”
