Jada Pinkett Smith says her family is ‘healing’ in new ‘Red Table Talk’ episode
Jada Pinkett Smith and her family are “healing,” according to Jada. Pinkett Smith appeared to discuss the event on her Emmy-winning Facebook Watch programme, “Red Table Talk,” over a month after her husband, Will Smith, smacked Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards.
The show delivered a statement from Pinkett Smith, who informed fans in an on-screen message that her family has been working on “deep healing” with the release of the first episode of its fifth season, which includes Grammy winner Janelle Monáe. Pinkett Smith expressed that considering all that has transpired in the previous several weeks. The Smith family has been working on profound healing. Some of their therapeutic findings will be revealed at the table when the time comes. She wrote in her statement till then the table will continue to open itself to strong, inspirational, and healing testimony like those of our tremendously outstanding first guest. They appreciate your presence, Jada.
It’s unclear why the episode premiered late, at 12 p.m. PT on Wednesday, rather than at its customary schedule of 9 a.m. PT. It’s also unknown if Monáe’s talk with the Red Table ladies — Pinkett Smith, Adrienne Banfield Norris, and Willow Smith — was shot prior to the Academy Awards, as several of the episodes were. Following the infamous Oscars slap, Pinkett Smith was at the centre of attention, as the event stemmed from a joke comedian Rock made about Pinkett Smith starring in a nonexistent sequel to “G.I. Jane,” a 1997 film starring Demi Moore, who shaved her head for the role, as the first lady to enter Navy SEAL training. Rock’s remark was most likely inspired by Pinkett Smith’s shorn head.
Since being diagnosed with alopecia, the actress has been open about her experience with the autoimmune disease that affects hair follicles. She revealed her hair loss battle in an Instagram post in December. Smith resigned from the Academy on April 1, and the Academy barred him from attending any Academy event or programme, including the Oscars, for ten years.
