Jada Pinkett Smith and her daughter Willow have opened up about their “infatuation” with women during a heartfelt episode of their Facebook Watch show.
The mother-daughter duo appeared on their show Red Table Talk, a regular Facebook Watch series in which three generations of the Smith family have open conversations on “taboo” topics. On the episode aired on Wednesday (March 31), the family spoke openly about their sexuality and their attraction to women.
Gay Will Smith and lesbian Jada Pinkett Smith: Alexis Arquette reveals her secrets
Willow Smith addresses mother and grandmother: “ I love men and women alike. ”
Pinkett Smith, who is married to actor Will Smith, admitted that “he was never able to connect with women romantically” but said he could see his daughter “falling in love with a woman one day.”
Willow, 20, said she has had her “fair share of swooning” and infatuation with women. Two years ago she came out on the show, saying she loves “men and women alike” and would “definitely” consider polyamory.
In this latest episode, Willow explained that she doesn’t feel like she’s been in love with a woman “yet” but added that she feels “it could happen” because “she’s had very strong feelings for women before.”
The confession led Jada Pinkett Smith to say that he has also “passed out a lot” for women. He said: “I have had two occasions when I have been infatuated with a woman.
“I’ve passed out twice before, at first … [cuando tenía] like 20 years. “
The conversation came when the show invited actress Niecy Nash to talk about her relationship with her new wife, Jessica Betts.
Nash revealed that she had married Betts in a beautiful ceremony on Instagram in September 2020. Fans were surprised by the news because Nash had never spoken publicly about her sexuality, and was previously married to two men.
Nash told Red Table Talk hosts that Betts is the first woman he’s ever attracted to. He said, “I’ve never dated a woman in my life until now.”
Nash said his relationship with Betts was the “first time I felt fully seen,” and that it “changed” it. He said it’s “harder for people” to understand their relationship because it doesn’t “fit into the box” they put it in.
“What I say to that is: I’m everything you thought I was. I just put my head elsewhere,” Nash said.
He joked that he is now part of the “LGBTQ + Niecy” community.
