In many cases, the first example of love children see is what they see at home; how their parents interact usually sets the tone for the relationship dynamics they’ll have later in life. While most parents desire to set a good example for their children, there’s one compromising position no parent wants to be caught in. No parent wants their children to catch them having sex. Unfortunately, for Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, their greatest embarrassment was realized because Willow recently revealed her first introduction to sex was catching her parents in action.
During an episode of Jada’s new Web series “Red Table Talk,” she had a round-table discussion with her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris and her daughter, Willow. The series gives all three ladies the opportunity to speak openly about life and personal experiences. Although the three have a very close bond, they’ve learned a bit more about each other during the intimate discussions. In fact, Willow has shared something with her mother that she had no clue about.
Jada has said that “Red Table Talk” is a table of truth where they don’t hold back. But she definitely received quite a surprise when she asked her 17-year-old daughter how she first learned about sex. During an interview with Vulture magazine, the “Girls Trip” star opened up about the shocking moments she had while filming the Facebook Watch series. The famed actress revealed Willow offered a response that nearly knocked the wind out of her. Unlike many children who see things on television or hear explicit lyrics in songs, Willow actually admitted she learned about sex from her own parents – because she walked in on them in action. One moment in particular was the shocking confession her daughter shared.
“I haven’t gotten any TMI moments, but I’ve gotten shocking moments,” Pinkett Smith told the publication. “Willow was giving me a couple of those.” This one particular bomb Willow dropped was a true game-changer. “I realized she walked in on Will and I. We were doing the sex show, I was like, ‘What was your introduction to sex?’” Pinkett-Smith said while laughing. “She was like, ‘Well, you know, me walking in on you and Dad.’ I had no idea!” she screamed.
Needless to say, Jada panicked and immediately wondered just how much her daughter had seen. “How did that happen?! I was like, ‘Lord have mercy, what did you see? Thank God I have some therapy fund put aside for you.” Thankfully, Willow didn’t actually see all that much, but she had some idea what was going on. “[S]he said that what she got from that was that she walked into a private space,” recalled Jada. “She was like, ‘That’s private time.’ She said she didn’t really see anything. But she knew she had just walked in on a very private moment.”
More Comical Relief:
Surprisingly, Jada added even more of a comical relief to the situation because she revealed Will actually had no clue that it happened either. Although it happened when Willow was a bit younger, the hilarious part is Will still has no idea. He’s learned of the embarrassing moment just like fans did: by watching the webisode. “I haven’t told him yet! That’s what’s funny, ’cause I want Will to see this! He’s gonna be like, ‘What?!’ He’s gonna call me and be like, What the hell is going on over there?!” she said. “I didn’t tell him on purpose because I think it’ll be so funny. He does that to me all the time. I’ll sip on my little tea and [watch].”
On Monday, May 7, the first webisode of “Red Table Talk” premiered on Facebook. In less than 24 hours, the webisode gained more than three million views. So it looks like the show will definitely be a hit. Congrats to Jada, her mother, Adrienne, and her daughter, Willow.
