"We had too much pride and too much insecurity to say, 'Hey, did that ever actually happen or was that a creation of someone else who did not want to see two women rise together?'" Union talked about their conversation on Smith's new talk show, Red Table Talk.

The 46-year-old actress kicked off the show's first episode on Monday with a bang, choosing her first guest to be none other than Will Smith's first wife, Sheree Zampino. He does that to me all the time.

"I've done a lot of sharing and growing on Facebook".

She laughed: "He does that to me all the time".

Jada Pinkett Smith didn't have to talk to her daughter, Willow, about the birds and the bees - because she accidentally showed her first-hand! I was like, "Lord have mercy, what did you see?

"It became something that I didn't feel was what I had signed up for in season one", she explained to Billboard . I would find myself on that show desperately trying to express myself through clothing or makeup or hair.

"When Jada asked me about doing the project, I was like, 'Sure!'" says her mother Banfield-Norris, a longtime nurse with few entertainment industry impulses.

Jada joked that she didn't tell him about the Willow's confession on objective so she can enjoy the star's "funny" reaction herself as a bit of pay back.

"Do you remember the time you looked at me and said, 'You know he's not easy, right?", Jada recounted.

She expressed that while she felt the tension in the relationship between Sheree and her parents growing up she loved hanging out with her and sleeping over at her house.

Red Table Talk premieres May 7, meaning we don't know Willow's full side of the story just yet. "'Is that really necessary?' But that's some old-school B.S. She needs you to be a mother to provide boundaries and security".
