There’s some healing that needs to happen…so I’m bringing myself to The Red Table.
The actress revealed she felt miserable walking down the aisle when she was three-months pregnant with her son
She's part of one of Hollywood's strongest marriages but actress Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed she didn't want to get married and cried all the way down the aisle on her wedding day to Fresh Prince husband, Will Smith.
Smith family matriach, Jada, revealed she was unhappy about getting married
The mum-of-two was three months pregnant with her son, Jaden, in 1997 when she married Will and revealed her first trimester was so horrible that she was incredibly p**sed to be having a wedding during it.

She walked in on her parents when she was a little girl.
One can't help but have an enormous amount of respect for the Smith family. The way Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith treat their kids as equals is a beautiful thing, and that's why Jada, her mom and daughter Willow Smith joined together for a very public conversation about sex.
Willow Smith at March For Our Lives
As part of her 'Red Table Talk' Facebook series, Jada wanted to discuss all things sex-related with 17-year-old Willow and her own mom Adrienne. That's when she found out that Willow's first experience of sex was accidentally seeing her parents at it while on vacation in Aspen, much to Jada's surprise as she had no idea about the whole thing.

The two women open up about their relationship for the first time.
In a world were nuclear families are becoming a thing of the past, more and more people find themselves learning how to deal with the concept of a blended family. It can be hard on a marriage when there are stepchildren involved, but for Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband's ex Sheree Fletcher, they grew to embrace it.

Jada, 46, married Will Smith in 1997 when she was just 25-years-old, but he was already going through a divorce when they started dating, and he and his ex-wife Sheree already had a young son named Trey. It's never easy to become a stepmother; there are always struggles with jealousy from both sides and clashing parenting methods, and that's why the two women got together to discuss it on her Facebook show 'Red Table Talk' yesterday (May 9th 2018).

Jada Pinkett Smith has praised her family for being musically diverse, as each of them - including husband Will Smith and children Jaden and Willow - create something different.
Jada Pinkett Smith has praised her family for being musically diverse.
The 46-year-old actress launched her music career in 2002 when she created metal band Wicked Wisdom, for which she is the lead singer.

Shake The Room' - as well as having musically talented children Jaden, who recently released his debut album 'Syre', and Willow, who found success aged 10 with hit single 'Whip My Hair', Jada couldn't be more proud of her creative family.

The girls let their hair down on vacay!
"The Hangover meets Sex and the City." That's how director Malcolm D. Lee describes his new comedy Girls Trip. "Women are just as lascivious and sexual as men, and they want to let loose and have fun," he says. "Female empowerment is something that people are craving right now. Black girl magic is real, and everyone is feeling it!"
The ladies in Girls Trip
The movie stars the epic quartet of Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall and rising star Tiffany Haddish (The Carmichael Show). And for Pinkett Smith, her character presented a rather specific challenge. "Lisa is certainly less dominant than my characters in the past," she says. "But I took the role because it was a comedy, and I'm always looking to challenge myself. Besides, the film is really just fun! And it's about women taking control of their lives, getting together and having a good old time. Sometimes you just need that, because I think a lot of the time we aren't necessarily given permission to do so."
Continue reading: Jada Pinkett Smith Loved Cutting Loose
This movie's premise basically sounds like The Hangover with added black girl power. But it's actually a lot more than that, with themes and ideas that emerge across the board. Although what audiences will remember are the more raucous comedic moments, which gleefully dive headlong into full-on vulgarity to keep the audience laughing all the way through to the big finale. And this will also be forever remembered as the movie that made The Carmichael Show's Tiffany Haddish a star.
She plays Dina, the sassy, hard-partying member of the Flossy Posse, a group of four friends from university 25 years ago. The others are superstar self-help guru Ryan (Regina Hall), notorious gossip blogger Sasha (Queen Latifah) and workaholic single mother Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith). Worrying that their friendship is fading away with time, Ryan proposes a reunion to travel to EssenceFest in New Orleans, where she's giving the keynote speech. So off they go to let their hair down and escape their responsible lives. But Sasha has just received a paparazzi photo of Ryan's football-star husband Stewart (Mike Colter) snuggling up with an Instagram model, and Dina immediately wants revenge. On the other hand, Ryan is concerned about maintaining her public image.
There are two big themes here that fit in rather nicely with the crazed antics that pepper the movie with rude flashes of riotous hilarity. First of course is the importance of sometimes setting your chores aside and just having fun with your friends. But the deeper message is about the importance of living honestly instead of just pretending that everything is great. Ryan, Sasha and Lisa have to face these issues and deal deeply with how they live their lives. Meanwhile, Dina just keeps partying. But then, she's the film's relentless scene-stealer, and the audience wouldn't have it any other way.

It only seems like yesterday that Willow Smith was a cute little girl taking on the world and whipping her hair back and forth, but she's 16-years-old now - which means she's turning 18 next year.
