Here is what happened:
During a recent episode of The View, cohost Ana Navarro shared her thoughts on Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s separation revelation. Ana commented on how much she knows about the couple’s marriage, jokingly stating that she feels more informed about their relationship than her own. She expressed her disinterest in hearing more about their marital status and would rather watch reruns of Will’s movies and sitcoms. Will and Jada’s relationship has consistently made headlines over their 26-year marriage, including Jada’s admission of an “entanglement” with August Alsina in 2020.
Not all The View cohosts agreed with Ana’s perspective. Joy Behar pointed out that many people are fascinated by this particular couple, and Sunny Hostin admitted her own interest in them, particularly due to an incident at the 2022 Oscars where Will slapped Chris Rock for making a joke about Jada’s bald head. Ana questioned the timing of Jada’s revelations, suggesting that they were strategically done to increase ratings for Red Table Talk and promote her upcoming memoir, Worthy. However, Joy and Sunny defended Jada, calling her brave and suggesting that her motives go beyond money, as she already has plenty of it.
Ana expressed her disbelief that Jada and Will kept their separation a secret for so long, considering the public scrutiny they faced due to the Oscars incident. However, Jada explained in an interview with Hoda Kotb that they were still trying to figure out how to be in partnership and present that to the world. Jada clarified that they have not legally ended their marriage and reiterated her promise to work through any challenges they face. To conclude, Ana lightheartedly speculated about their lack of intimacy over the years, while Jada emphasized the importance of trust and their commitment to one another.
Throughout their marriage, Will and Jada have made various statements about their relationship. Will referred to Jada as his life partner, expressing his unwavering support for her. Jada dismissed rumors about their marriage and emphasized the importance of trust and freedom. Both have expressed their love and admiration for each other, while acknowledging the challenges they have faced.
