Jada Pinkett Smith teases new ‘Red Table Talk’ season after slap



“Red Table Talk” is back for a new season.

The Facebook Watch talk show features Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow Smith and her mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, with their Season 5 return slated for Wednesday.

The new trailer teased many celebrity guests invited to the red table, including Janelle Monáe, who will be on the season premiere.

Monáe is expected to open up about her coming out at the age of 32 as well as her father’s drug addiction and will be joined by her mom, Janet Hawthorne.

“I’m super honored to be here,” Monáe said.

Another mother-daughter pair coming to the red table will be Kim Basinger and Ireland Baldwin.

“I went through a very heavy-duty, out loud, when you’re in the public divorce,” Basinger says of her split from Alec Baldwin in the trailer, which will mark her first interview in over a decade.

The preview shows Ireland opening up about her anxiety and the “different kinds of abuse” she’s been through.

The mother of Miss USA Cheslie Kryst will also make an appearance at the red table to talk about her daughter who died by suicide in January. 

“I walked through the door and just collapsed in my son’s arms,” the heartbroken mother says in the video.

Barbara Corcoran also comes to the table to talk about being the target of a scam.

Willow, Jaden and Trey Smith will also participate in their first solo episode together as a group.

“Red Table Talk” has aired 100 episodes so far and won a 2021 Daytime Emmy for outstanding informative talk show. The hosts were also named some of Time’s “Most Influential People of 2021.”

The new season of “Red Table Talk” comes after the infamous moment at the Oscars when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock after a joke about Pinkett Smith’s alopecia. Smith has released an apology to Rock and resigned from the Academy. It was decided that Smith will be banned from the Oscars for 10 years following the incident.

The show did not acknowledge whether or not they will address or discuss the slap heard around the world.

“Red Table Talk” will drop episodes on Facebook Watch weekly starting Wednesday, April 20 at 12 p.m. EST.
