Jada Pinkett Smith has been sparking many a conversation on her Red Table Talk web series, but perhaps none as highly anticipated as husband Will Smith’s upcoming sit-down.

A preview for the upcoming season of the Facebook Watch show, which features Jada with her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, and daughter Willow Smith, reveals that there is some real talk when Big Willie is a guest with the ladies. The snippet released Monday shows Will speaking candidly about his 20-year marriage to Jada — a marriage that has been gossiped about since the day it began.


“There was a period where mommy woke up and cried 45 days straight,” Smith said to Willow. “I started keeping a diary.”

Willow reacted, saying, “Damn,” while Jada said jokingly, “You missed some days,” making it clear that the time period was an extensive one.

Will continued, “It was every morning. I think that’s the worst I ever felt in our marriage. I was failing miserably.”

The clip stops there, but another preview of the new season shows more with the star of the upcoming film Aladdin. In one bit, Will reiterates what Jada said last season on the show: They don’t consider themselves married anymore. (They consider themselves life partners.) He also cries, but it’s not clear why.

There are lighter moments too. In one, Will playfully tells his wife, with whom he shares two children, before sitting down at the table, “You’re not breaking me today, Jada.” The Girls Trip star replies, “I’ve broken you enough.” Then, when Jada starts talking about how she dated a lot before they got married, Smith pretended to get up, saying, “All right, I’ve had enough of the Red Table.”


Other celebrity guests this season on Jada’s show — which kicks off on Oct. 22 with Will’s chat — include Leah Remini, who will discuss Scientology (interesting because she’s long claimed Jada was secretly a Scientologist) as well as Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, who will talk about race, according to the preview.
