Jada Pinkett Smith recently signed a deal with Facebook to produce an inter-generational talk show starring Jada’s mother and her daughter Willow Smith. Called Red Table Talk, the show will run on the new on-demand service, Facebook Watch. According to Extra, one of the episodes features Gabrielle Union as a guest to allow the pair to bury a hatchet. Apparently, the two had been feuding for 17 years, and neither party even remembers why.

“I have a really touching episode with Gabrielle Union,” Smith said to Extra. “We haven’t been on the best terms for 17 years, and we have a reconciliation. 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 asked to confirm if featuring Union on Red Table Talk resolved their nearly two-decade beef, Smith made it very clear. 

“Oh, definitely,” she said. “We don’t even know how it started!”


Instagram family, . @RedTableTalk is on its way, May 7th. This project has been an intense journey towards my healing and my need for more authenticity from within myself. This is the year of growth for me as I take terrifying steps towards my personal freedom thru experiences and discussions with my mother and daughter.  My growth has also consisted of being a witness to @WillowSmith and my mother’s need for change in their lives without my judgement or opinion.  It’s been a ride! . We aren’t the only 3 who sit at the table. We will also have celebrity guests who visit, as well as other family members.  Will’s first wife, @ShereeFletcher, comes to talk about our journey of co- parenting @TreySmith0011. My son @c.syresmith visits the table. And @WillSmith and I share the Red Table with my mother and @WillowSmith as we discuss the journey of transitioning from a “marriage”  to a life-partnership. We will discuss what that means, how we transitioned as a family, and how it has helped bring more ease and happiness to our family. . I’m putting it all on the Red Table while also giving permission to all those who are looking to be more... true to themselves... to do the same. It’s a process... that I’m looking so forward to experiencing with @Facebook and the @FacebookWatch community. . I came to Facebook Watch because the discussions and process can continue even after the airing of an episode.  Each Weds after the Monday airings of #RedTableTalk, I will be having Facebook live conversations where we can engage in the process of growth together in real time. . We are all trying to figure out this thing called, Life. We are all searching for our peace and joy. I’m excited to have an opportunity where we can do it together. . Soon. Jada

Smith also revealed that there will be a special episode starring Will Smith's ex-wife, Sheree Zampino. “Our Mother’s Day episode happens to be one of my favorites,” said Smith. “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 years together in this thing called family.”

Red Table Talk premieres Facebook Watch on Monday.
