In the past, Jada Pinkett Smith has used "Red Table Talk" as a forum to candidly speak on personal matters, but according to this season’s trailer, her husband's slap won’t be up for discussion.
On Tuesday (April 19), Smith dropped a preview of the upcoming episodes of "Red Table Talk" promising “powerful and healing conversations.” Although she previously called for "a season of healing" after Will Smith slapped Chris Rock, the trailer notably left out any talk of the incident.
Will stormed this year's Oscars stage and assaulted Rock, who mocked Jada’s hair while presenting the award for Best Documentary. Besides the Instagram message of "healing," Jada has remained radio silent about her husband’s actions, even after he was banned from the Academy for the next 10 years.
On this season of "Red Table Talk," Jada, along with her daughter Willow Smith and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Noris, will be hosting and having candid conversations with stars Janelle Monáe, Kim Basinger, Basinger’s daughter Ireland Baldwin, and more.
The two-minute trailer previewed Basinger and Baldwin opening up about mental health and past abusive relationships. Monáe’s interview delves into discussions of her difficult childhood.
Other guests set to appear on this season of "Red Table Talk" include the parents of Miss USA Cheslie Kryst, who died earlier this year by suicide, and victims of the Tindler Swindler and Anna Delvey.
While Will’s controversial slap wasn’t addressed in the trailer, the topic could still be broached.
"Red Table Talk" will premiere on Wednesday (April 20).
