The ‘Girls Trip’ star also reveals her first phone chat with his first wife, Sheere Zampino, wasn’t pleasant as the latter told him, ‘B***h, you living in a house I picked out!’
Jada Pinkett Smith moved in with her husband Will Smith before he was divorced from his first wife. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, the “Girls Trip” star and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones have opened up about Jada’s Hollywood romance, and reveal Will made the moves on her when he was still married to his ex, Sheree Zampino.
“I think initially when Will first called you, I think he was still married or he was just separated, or something, and I said, ‘He’s not available to you,’ ” Banfield-Jones explains. “He was ‘div,’ ” Jada jokes. “The ‘orced’ hadn’t happened yet.”
The actress and Will’s ex sit down to talk about their “journey” for the first time on Jada’s new TV show “Red Table Talk”, and Sheree reveals their first phone chat wasn’t pleasant, laughing, “I call back and I happen to say, ‘B***h, you living in a house I picked out!’ You said, ‘It’s my house now!’ “
Jada remembered the awkward conversation and added, “Will Smith let me have it.” The two women have become friends, with Jada crediting Sheree for helping her become a good mom by allowing her to co-mother Trey, her son with Will.
Pinkett Smith also put an end to another former feud on the series by sitting down with Gabrielle Union for her new Facebook Watch talk show. “I have a really touching episode with Gabrielle Union,” she recently told news show “Extra”. “We haven’t been on the best of terms for 17 years, and we have a reconciliation. When the producers said we want to do a girlfriends show… her name just kept coming up… it just couldn’t be anything else.”
