Jada & Willow Smith Open Up About Sexuality: "I've Had Times I've Been Infatuated With A Woman"

Red Table Talk is back to test what it really means to have open conversation!

Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow Smith are opening up in a whole new way, ladies. Things got real candid about sexuality in the latest episode of Red Table Talk, and I'm just here for every second.

It all started ahead of their interview with Niecy Nash, who married Jessica Betts last year. For a quick background, the two basically collectively broke the internet and confused us all in a move that made us gather our pearls, say 'OK dennnn', and proceed with celebrating their union. Jada and Willow touched on the subject and took a quick turn when the mother/daughter duo discussed their own feelings of attraction towards women.

Jada began:

"I love being amongst women, but I never could connect to women romantically. But that's not to say that it couldn't be. You just never know."

She then said that she could totally imagine Willow falling in love with a woman, to which Willow replied:

"I've had my fair share of swooning and feeling, 'She's so beautiful, she's so talented.'"

Ultimately, Jada agreed with the mult-hyphenate, and said:

"I've had two times [where] I've been infatuated with a woman. I've swooned two times, early, early on. Like [age] 20."

Willow, who is 20 herself, then quipped:

"I haven't been in love with a woman just yet, but I definitely feel like it could happen. Because I've had very strong feelings for women before."

Laaaaawd, I could not imagine having this conversation with my mother, but healthy communication is what we love!

Eventually, the two brought up a prior conversation where Willow mentioned to her mom that if her marriage to Will didn't work out, Willow could see her mother having a relationship with another woman.

Well, OK dennnn.

Granted, this isn't the first time these two have opened up about their sexuality on the show. Willow touched on polyamory and loving both men and women previously in 2019 when she said:

"I love men and women equally, and so I would definitely want one man, one woman. I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people. I'm not the kind of person that is constantly looking for new sexual experiences. I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I were to find two people of different genders that I really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I don't feel like I would feel the need to try to go find more."

And of course, Jada's relationship status has been discussed on the Red Table many times, thus bringing forward the complex conversation of "entanglements".

And we all know that one got a little messy, but the pair were able to create a very public open dialogue, and move on in their marriage, as so many--without the world watching--have to put their big girl and boy panties on, and do.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).

Money Talks is an xoNecole series where we talk candidly to real women about how they spend money, their relationship with money, and how they spend it.

Samari Ijezie is the creator of The Female Economist, a platform created to challenge and disrupt the stereotypical gender norms within the financial industry while educating millennials of financial literacy. However, before founding this financial literacy company for women and marginalized millennials, she had a career in fashion and style as a model that started in her preteen years. Though she briefly kicked off her modeling career at the age of fourteen, it was short-lived because soon after high school, Ijezie decided to go off to college but later had to drop out during her freshman year due to not receiving financial assistance in the next term.

Many people love October for the new fall fashion fits, changing weather, and never-ending horror movies. And while all of those are valid reasons, there's another one that should be added to the mix, the fact that it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Like many, cancer has impacted my family personally, and I'm well aware of the forever effect it can have on individuals, loved ones, and survivors. That's why I appreciate that this month serves as a personal reminder to donate, foster community, and volunteer toward a fight that affects so many of us.

There's that old wives' tale that sex before a sports match is a major no-no for athletes, but when it comes to us everyday folk, consistent lovemaking does the mind and body good. In fact, sex and productivity can actually go hand in hand. A recent multiple-university study found that professionals who had sex the night before going into work had "more positive moods" that increased work engagement and job satisfaction.
