Jada Pinkett Smith’s ‘Red Table Talk” is finally returning with all-new episodes, but their lineup is noticeably missing Will Smith as a guest or any mention of that Oscar slap. Season 5 of Jada’s Emmy-winning series will premiere weekly starting Wednesday and it will feature celebrities like Janelle Monáe and Kim Basinger, but Will seemed to be left off the guest list.
Many speculated he would join his family on camera to address the viral Oscars moment as he used the platform to talk about their relationship and bond. The Red Table Talk Season 5 promo highlights a variety of topics, but it looks like Will slapping Chris Rock isn’t one of them. The upcoming season of Red Table Talk will also include, the parents of Miss USA Cheslie Kryst as Cheslie tragically jumped from her high-rise apartment in New York back in January.
Jada will also be joined by Ayleen Charlotte, one of the victims of Simon Leviev, better known as the Tinder Swindler. However, the trailer also teases an episode of the Smith siblings as Willow, Jaden, and Trey feature in their first solo episode together as a group. It’s not yet clear if the kids will address the recent incident involving their father Will Smith.
The Smith family has recently been in the limelight following the Oscars incident where Will slapped presenter Chris Rock on stage at the ceremony. Following the Oscar 2022 incident, Smith publicly apologised to the comedian and has also been banned by the Academy from attending the ceremony for ten years.
