Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Reveal Low Moment Of Their Marriage On 'Red Table Talk'

"I think that’s the worst I've ever felt in our marriage." 

Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk series is back for season two. The season opener premiered on Facebook Watch on Monday (Oct. 22), and Jada, her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris and daughter, Willow Smith invited a pretty big guest. Will Smith joined the ladies for a candid conversation about love, marriage, and creating a unique family dynamic.

"You're not breaking me today, Jada," Will told his wife as he entered the red table room. "I've broken you enough," she joked in response.

As many people already know, Will and Jada have always considered themselves to be "life partners" more than husband and wife. During the discussion, Will and Jada got real about the ups and downs of their marriage and why they have been able to last for the past 21 years.

The couple might seem to have the happy ending, but they revealed there was a period where they almost didn't make it. "There was a period where mommy woke up and cried 45 days straight, I started keeping a diary,” Will revealed. "You missed some days," Jada added.

Will continued: "It was every morning. I think that’s the worst I've ever felt in our marriage."

They explained how certain thoughts and bad habits ultimately led to their demise, but over time they learned how to communicate in a way that would be beneficial to both of them. For example, very early on in their relationship, Will established a rule that they would not curse or scream at each other, which was set in motion as a result of Will witnessing domestic abuse between his father and mother at an early age.

The 27-minute episode was just the first part of the two-part episode. Next week, Will Smith will return to speak more on working through their rough patches, as well as address those longstanding rumors of swinging, infidelity, and more.

Additionally, the preview of what's in store for the upcoming season shows more celebrities guests including Toni Braxton, more real conversations, and of course more tears.

Check out the first part of the season premiere of Red Table Talk in the video above.

Stream: Hulu's 'FYRE Fraud' Doc Examines The Festival That Scammed Thousands

In 2017, rumors of an exclusive festival taking place in the Bahamas took over social media. Organized by Billy McFarland and promoted by Ja Rule, the FYRE Festival was the new, cool kid on the festival block and quickly put other more seasoned festivals to shame.

But all that glitters isn't gold.

FYRE FRAUD, the new documentary streaming on Hulu, takes an intimate look at the scam that left thousands stranded on the island. Directed by Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason, the dark-comedy interviews whistleblowers, victims, and the convicted con-man himself, McFarland.

In a press release, Fraust and Nason said the goal isn't to make light of those who were scammed.

"Our aim was to set the stage for a strange journey into the moral abyss of our digital age, going beyond the meme to show an ecosystem of enablers, driven by profit and willing to look the other way, for their own gain.

"We draw on countless cultural references, on true crime tension, and on humor - but we did not intend to create a toothless comedy about the Fyre Festival. We hope this film can pierce our collective apathy and disrupt our own millennial peers, if only for an instant - to look at these stories for what they truly are, and to halt this algorithm before it devours us whole."

FYRE FRAUD is now streaming on Hulu.

Dave Chappelle Isn't Sure His R. Kelly 'Chappelle Show' Skits Were Insensitive

The Surviving R. Kelly series may be over, but the fallout from it has seemingly just begun.

Director dream hampton took to Twitter during the airing of the Lifetime documentary and spoke honestly about the several celebrity men she contacted in hopes they'd speak on camera about R. Kelly and the years of sexual allegations that have shadowed him. Among them was Dave Chappelle.

The beloved comic famously made a music video entitled "Piss On You" mocking the real-life video of R. Kelly urinating on an underage girl. During the Chappelle Show heyday, he used R.Kelly's legal woes as material for years.

TMZ caught with Chappelle in West Hollywood and asked him if he regretted not being featured in hampton's series and instead he dodged the question.

"Jesus Christ, I just had dinner," Chappelle said in between taking a drag of his cigarette. "I just ate. Strop bringing that motherf**ker up."

When pressed about whether or not he thinks his old skits were insensitive, the 45-year-old said "I don't know. I'd have to watch it again."

D.L. Hughley joined Chappelle for dinner and commented on R.Kelly and the forthcoming Michael Jackson documentary, Leaving Neverland, which outlines sexual assault allegations against the late singer.

"If you can be mad at R. Kelly, you should be mad at Michael Jackson," Hughley said.
