"Your Relationship Is Not Your Identity": Jada Pinkett Smith on Modern Love and Open Relationships
Jada Pinkett Smith's viral cross-generational talk show Red Table Talk is a nonjudgemental space for authentic conversation. It explores topics that are generally seen as taboo for mainstream television, including polyamorous relationships, white families adopting black children, and the ups and downs of having a blended family. Now, Red Table Talk is coming to the UK with new episodes, featuring British voices, airing on Facebook Watch this September.
Although unconfirmed, it's been long rumoured that Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith have an open marriage. On a recent episode of Red Table Talk, daughter Willow Smith, mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, and Jada herself had a frank conversation about unconventional relationships and how they are becoming more socially acceptable.
We sat down with Jada to have our own frank conversation and to hear her thoughts on our evolving ideas of love, negotiating the type of relationship that works for you, and navigating emotional insecurities. So, before you wonder, "when will they text me back?", keep reading for Jada's take on defining yourself separate from your relationship.
