We're Getting 13 More Episodes Of Jada Pinkett Smith's 'Red Table Talk' Facebook Show

Facebook Watch has ordered 13 more episodes of Jada Pinkett Smith's 'Red Table Talk' series.

Red Table Talk, a Facebook Watch series hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith (co-hosted by her daughter, Willow, and mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris), has been the talk of the town lately, and with good reason. Every Monday since May 7, Facebook users have been able to feel like a fly on the wall within the home of one of our favorite entertainment families. So far, the no-holds-barred show has made viewers privy to heavy (but necessary) conversations such as Jada's past depression, Willow's moments of self-harm and Gabrielle Union's 17-year-long stand-off with Jada.

Now, it looks as if we'll be getting more of these endearing, eye-opening and tear-jerking moments. According to Deadline, Facebook Watch ordered 13 more episodes to round out Season 1. These new episodes are reportedly set to air in the fall. As expected, Pinkett Smith is more than thrilled.

“The community that has been built around the Red Table is so strong and keeps my mother, Willow and I inspired to keep going," she said. "We are so grateful to be given the opportunity to do so by continuing The Red Table Talk journey with Facebook Watch. There is so much more to explore together and so many people to bring to the table to do it with us. We have learned so much along the way. With that being said, I believe, this next 13 … is going to be fire!”

Ricky Van Veen, Head of Global Creative Strategy at Facebook, echoes these thoughts.

“The community engagement we’re seeing with Red Table Talk is exactly what we had hoped for when Facebook Watch launched last year," he said. "The show is a shining example of how compelling content can drive meaningful conversations forward, and bring people together around issues that matter. The three powerful women at the table are connecting with viewers in important ways, and we’re thrilled to be able to deliver more of the show through Watch.”

We'll be sure to tune in.

'Sesame Street' Praised For The Inclusion Of Homeless Character

Sesame Street continues its crusade to include statement-making characters on their block. This time around, families will be introduced to Lily, the show’s first homeless character.

According to USA Today, Lily- an adorable hot pink, red haired puppet- was first introduced to the show in 2011, but in new online clips, Lily opens up about being homeless and staying with friends.

"Now we don't have our own place to live, and sometimes I wonder if we'll ever have our own home," she says to Elmo in one clip. In her initial appearances on the show, Lily discusses her family’s food insecurities, meaning they didn’t have much to eat.

“We know children experiencing homelessness are often caught up in a devastating cycle of trauma – the lack of affordable housing, poverty, domestic violence, or other trauma that caused them to lose their home, the trauma of actually losing their home, and the daily trauma of the uncertainty and insecurity of being homeless,” said Sherrie Westin, President of Global Impact and Philanthropy at Sesame Workshop.

“We want to help disrupt that cycle by comforting children, empowering them, and giving them hope for the future," she continues. "We want them to know that they are not alone and home is more than a house or an apartment – home is wherever the love lives.”

In recent years, Sesame Street has introduced a slew of ground-breaking new characters, including Julia, a puppet with autism, and Alex, a character whose father is incarcerated.

In addition to the “Money” rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardi’s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine what shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.

Romeo Miller May Have Landed A Role In 'Bad Boys For Life'

Bad Boys 3 is officially going down, and there's going to be a lot of new changes. The biggest change seems to be major additions to the film's cast. In fact, Romeo Miller recently hopped on social media on Tuesday (Dec. 11), suggesting that he could be the newest addition to the Bad Boys team.

Romeo shared a photo of an email for a callback to the Bad Boys set on his Instagram Stories on Dec. 11. "When you get callbacks and opportunity to work alongside your idols, @martinlawrence and @willsmith, you go study and go ghost," the rapper-turned-actor said, mentioning stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith.

Romeo isn't the only hip-hop star to possibly land a role in the forthcoming movie. Nicky Jam also suggested he was going out for a part during an interview with TMZ in Nov. 2018. "I actually came her because I'm doing a casting for a movie," he said at the time.

As previously reported Will Smith and Martin Lawrence announced that the third installment of the Bad Boys franchise is finally happening after years of negotiating. The upcoming film, entitled, Bad Boys For Life, is expected to premiere in Jan. 2020.

Check out Romeo's post below.
