    She didn’t need the bells and whistles. Jada Pinkett Smithwas hesitant to walk down the aisle when she married her now-husband, Will Smith, in 1997, but her mom, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, was insistent.

    “[My mom] wanted me to have a wedding. She wanted me to get married,” Pinkett Smith, 47, told Us Weekly and other reporters at the return celebration of her Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, in Los Angeles on Thursday, May 16. “I didn’t want to! … She told me to get married and we better have a wedding.”

    Banfield-Norris, 65, now recognizes that the persuasion was a “huge fail” on her part. She noted, “I really wanted a wedding. … I really didn’t get how much [Jada] didn’t want to have a wedding.”


    The pair eventually settled into married life and welcomed two children: Jaden Smith, now 20, and Willow Smith, now 18. TheGotham alum also recalled how the Aladdin star helped herbalance motherhood with a busy career in Hollywood.

    “Will used to tell me all the time, he’d say, ‘Put your mask on first.’ You know, you’ll be on the plane and the pilot says, ‘Hey, look, if something goes down, put your mask on first,’” she said. “You can’t do jack for anybody else if you got a lack of oxygen. And I wish I had listened more to him because he would tell me that from day one, and I was like, ‘What does that even mean?’ That’s what that meant. … I’m gonna tell you what, if I’m breathing good, all y’all are gone be breathing good too.”

    Pinkett Smith also spoke out about the backlash Ayesha Curry faced after admitting onRed Table Talk that she hates that women “will always be lurking” around her husband, Stephen Curry. “We have to expect that because everybody’s not ready. And that’s OK,” the Girls Tripactress asserted. “She’s OK. I talked to her, you know, and I said, ‘You know what? That truth was so real.’”

    The Bad Moms actress, whomarried the Men in Black actor on New Year’s Eve in 1997,previously admitted that their nuptials were “horrible.”

    She confessed on a October 2018 episode of Red Table Talk: “I was so upset that I had to have a wedding. I was so pissed. I went crying down the freakin’ aisle getting married.”

    I'm not following her in this interview. So she was cool with being in a relationship with, she just didn't want a wedding?

    And why did she need to talk to Ayesha Curry about her not feeling the women lurking around her husband? I'm so confused.

    What the fukk is wrong with women nowadays? She could've kept that shyt to herself.

    Why would any man get married with the number of birdbrain ass females walking around?
