Will and Jada Struggling in Quarantine


On the latest episode of Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett-Smith admits she and husband Will Smith are struggling with being quarantined together during the COVID19 lockdown and realizes that she doesn't know Will at all...


Jada explains,
'One of the things I realize is that I don't know Will at all ... It's challenging.'
'The thing that Will and I are learning to do is be friends, right? Because you get into all of these ideas of what intimate relationships are supposed to look like, what marriages are supposed to be.
'So Will and I are in the process of him taking the time to learn to love himself, me taking the time to learn to love myself, right, and us building a friendship along the way.'
'So let me tell you, that's been something, to be married to somebody for 20-some odd years and realize: "I don't know you and you don't know me." And also realizing too, there's an aspect of yourself you don't know either.'

Easy I will translate to you: We live in a big hollywood mansion, and we have been married and having kids but we were really 2 ships passing in the night. Now they are stuck living together and they realize they don't know each other at all and are getting on each others nerves. Yes they go to hollywood parties and yes they are papped together every single day but they don't talk like that because they are not really in the house all day getting to know each other.

This quarantine is bringing out the real in people.

But instead of working on her problems, she's making announcements on social media.

A Libra and a Virgo quarantined together. Wow, those sun placements are more serious than people think.

Ok I'm giving Jada the side eye on this because she dosent live in a mansion, hell she lives in a got damn compound with east, west, north and south wings. Pick one Jada if he's getting on your nerves.

And if what you are saying is the case, it didn't take this quarantine to realize now something is off in your marriage. Hell it's probably been off.

My Spidey senses say this is either the lay out for the divorce announcement, or attention seeking on her part because we all know she don't have much going on these days accept that red table.

Which one is it Jada?

I been married to my hubby for 11 years this month. I know this man's every move sometimes before he does. That's because I took the time to know him and he I. Sad they been married twice as long as we have and don't know each other?? I wonder how ok he is with her telling everything on this talk show all the damn time.

My parents been married 40 and their marriage is suffering during this pandemic.

Their marriage has always been a sham to me and seemed arranged. Jada never IN LOVE with Will from what I observed. I think she married Will to fortify her career because when they met he was one of the few Black male mega-stars available and his star was steadily rising. His marriage was ending and he needed to be coupled with another rising Black female star so they could present a Hollywood power couple like Tom and Nicole (another Scientology couple).

Although she had a few hit movies under her belt her career didn't materialize into much beyond Black cinema (Woo, Set It Off, Jason's Lyric, etc). So Hollywood didn't see her as a leading lady and never cast her in their leading blockbusters. Those roles went to Zoe Saldana instead. So she's always played second fiddle to Will and his career and I think she's always been bitter about it.

I remember her saying in an interview early on that she had to grow to like Will. But coming from Baltimore, her opportunistic self wanted a piece of that pie and Hollywood life. This is probably why she never really took the time to get to know her husband. And it's also why she was ok with having an open marriage and all that swinging. And it's probably why she considers her mother, who lived with them, her best friend, instead of her husband. Notice how Will never has anything negative to say about her or their marriage, as far as I know. But every chance she gets she's airing their dirty laundry and talking about what's wrong with him and their situation. The facade is cracking.

She's having long-term buyer's remorse because Will is still one of Hollywood's most beloved actors and she's best known for being HIS wife and a mother of two sort of out there kids. If it wasn't for her trying to keep up appearances I'm sure she would have been divorced him a long time ago. Never liked this broad. Fake as a $3 bill.

@ 11:03. Please replace Zoe saldana with Halle berry.

ms mac said...

@11:17, I knew someone would mention that but Halle's career was well established before Jada or Zoe came along and Hollywood needed a fresher face. Notice Halle and Will have never made a blockbuster movie together and I think that's because back then White Hollywood was very intentional about not bringing two or more A-List Blacks together in their major productions (e.g. they kept Eddie solo, Denzel, Wesley solo, Will solo ... you get my point).

I said Zoe because she's Jada's contemporary in terms of their age, look, prior work, etc. I could see Jada in Avatar, Columbiana or Guardians of the Galaxy but they gave that to Zoe. But at least they gave Jada a small role in the Matrix.

And yes, I know Halle and Eddie were in Boomerang but that was not a White Hollywood movie.

This sad. I've been dating my boo less than a year and I can read him like a book. The Smith family been strange..

To me Jada is for TV at best. I dont see her as a well polished major star. Maybe its the voice along with the acting chops. She is a "around the way gurl" for the thug type. She was good friends with Tu Pac. Will is not street. He is too goofy for her. But she hit the jack pot with him.

She was lucky to be cute and light skin. Thats what Will likes(with a side of peen)...Just jokes.

2:15 is the resident psycho on this blog. She's been told so many times to take her meds. Now her crazy ass is telling other people to take the meds she needs. Bitch go find a hobby.

@2:33PM. I agree. She seems very pressed and obsessed. Probably jealous of Ms Mac.

Anyway about Jada she is not a very good actress and I agree that Will plays for the other team so I don't know why she's acting brand new like they ever got along before. He's probably acting out because he miss his boo Dwayne Martin.

2:15 PM resident lonely psycho stalker, bitch sound like a spurned lover said...

Pay 2:15 PM no mind, that lonely psycho troll, has no friends in real life, and the only attention it get's is stalking random rws stalker, it takes turn stalking people and clearly needs to be in a psych ward, in a padded room. What a pathetic lonely existence.
