*You probably won’t be surprised to learn that Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith‘s appearance on Jada’s Facebook Watch show “Red Table Talk” was a humongous hit.
After all, the special edition was designed for the Smiths to discuss the revelation singer August Alsina‘s revelation that he had an affair with Jada and that Will gave him his blessing.
Yep, who wouldn’t want to know what the Smiths would have to say about the explosive assertion?
The answer is a LOT of people. Simply put, the latest episode of Pinkett Smith’s “Red Table Talk” set a new record for the most views in 24 hours for a Facebook Watch original episode, with more than 15 million views reported in less than a day. While the numbers aren’t officially verified yet, this smashes the previous record of 7.6 million, held by another “Red Table Talk” episode featuring Jordyn Woods, according to EW.
Pinkett Smith said she had a relationship with Alsina while she and Smith were separated, saying she doesn’t “really look at it as a transgression at all.” The Smiths have since reconciled and gotten back together.
“I was done with your ass, but marriages have that, though,” Smith said, laughing. “We decided that we were going to separate for a period of time and you go figure out a way to make yourself happy and I’ll figure out how to make myself happy.”
“Red Table Talk” earned a Daytime Emmy nomination last year, a first for Facebook. You can watch the record-setting episode here.
