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!”
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.
