Jada Pinkett Smith was hesitant to interview Jordyn Woods on Red Table Talk following her cheating scandal with Tristan Thompson.
It was one of the most highly anticipated interviews of the year. Woods was going to speak her truth for what went down with Khloe Kardashian’s baby daddy, after weeks of being bullied in the media and online.
Jada was utterly supportive of the 21-year-old, even having her husband Will video call in so Woods knew the Smith family had her back during the interview. However, leading up to the conversation, the Gotham star was reluctant to even let Will’s goddaughter on her talk show.

“Jordyn really felt like it was the only safe place that she could do that interview. It actually wasn’t something I wanted to do because it was very close to home, but as time transpired, Jordyn was just like, ‘I really need you in this platform’ and Will Smith felt like it was supremely important. So, I was like, okay let’s do it,” Jada shared with People magazine.
When it was revealed Woods was going to sit down with Jada, fans were shocked Red Table Talk had landed such big interview. Plus, Kylie Jenner was good friends with Jaden Smith, so the decision to have Woods on the show was rather enticing to fans.
However, it was soon revealed the Woods and Smith’s have a strong family connection. Their bond goes much deeper than any relationship the Hollywood stars had with the Kardashian and Jenner family.
Since the drama went down, Jaden has not been spotted with Jenner. He did have Woods appear with him briefly at Coachella, guess fans knows whose side he took in the scandal.
The Red Table Talk interview with Jordyn Woods was the highest viewed Facebook Watch episode ever.
Jada Pinket Smith may not have wanted to do it, but thanks to the interview, people started to see Woods as a person. The mindset toward the model began to shift, with people even beginning to feel bad for her and call out the Kardashian family for being bullies.
It has been months since the scandal broke, but as it unfolds on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, all the drama is front and center again. Woods isn’t enduring the fallout alone, she has the Smith’s
Who would you rather have in your corner the Smith family or the Kar/Jar clan?
