Jada Pinkett reveals Will Smith still takes trips with ex-wife Sheree Zampino when she isn't around
Making a special guest appearance, Zampino joined Pinkett and Adrienne Banfield Norris on the latest episode of 'Red Table Talk' on Facebook Watch, released on Wednesday, October 19. The pair on the show spoke about the evolution of their sisterhood and their perfectly blended family. They admitted their relationship initially was ‘messy’ as Jada entered Will’s life when he was in the process of getting a divorce from Zampino. "I was in the picture too soon," admitted Jada.
Jada then noted she loves seeing Zampino’s post-divorce relationship with her husband while adding that the two exes still take trips together when she is not there. "We have developed a really nice sisterhood. But it hasn't been easy," Jada continued. "Trying to have a blended family and not really have a blueprint for that, we really had to figure it out along the way. For me, it really was about maturity [and] not understanding the marital dynamic."
Zampino was married to the ‘Pursuit of Happiness star from 1992 to 1995 and shares a son named Trey, 29, with him. While Jada married the Oscar Winning star just two weeks after his divorce from Zampino. Married since 1997, the couple now has two children: son Jaden Smith, 24, and daughter Willow Smith, 21.
Further in the conversation, Sheree explained, "With Will, we’re better as co-parents than we were as husband and wife. We came together to have Tre, it took the two of us to make him but then we shifted." Jada interrupted her input and said, "You guys really enjoy each other."
Country singer Jana Kramer, who was this week’s celebrity guest, then asked Jada if she gets annoyed by her husband’s relationship with his ex-wife. Jada stated confidently, "Never. They take trips, I’m not there. They do their thing. Not together romantically but if he’s going on a book tour and his mum is going and his sister, it’s fun for me to watch them enjoy each other. It takes time though."
Realizing the aftermath of the statement, Jada then insisted with a laugh, "We’re not having a throuple though everyone, let’s make that clear because you know that’ll be the next rumor."
Elsewhere in the chat, Jada said her biggest misconception was that she thought Will’s relationship with Sheree died right after he signed the divorce paper. "This woman is a part of this family. [I was] not only taking on Trey, but Sheree is coming along too. Looking back, I definitely would have taken a beat as far as putting myself in the dynamic of you guys [and] let you two flesh out whatever you need to figure out. I didn't understand it."
The interview came just a few days after Jada announced she will be writing her own memoir in which she will be candidly talking about the complications of their marriage.
