Ever since Will Smith’s slapped Chris Rock after his wife, Jada Pinkett, gave him a side eye, a lot of clips have resurfaced showing why Will has been miserable in his marriage for 20 years.
Smith admitted his wife never ‘believed in conventional marriage’ so they spent a long time figuring out their relationship boundaries. He said: ‘Jada never believed in conventional marriage.… Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship.
When asked by Michaela what would make him happy, Smith said: ‘I would have a harem.’ Smith and Michaela thought up of 25 women for the group, but their names aren’t revealed in the memoir. He did, however, specify that he wanted Halle Berry and ballerina Misty Copeland.
The actor was initially excited by the prospect and promised to get in touch with the women the next morning. Yet it soon dawned on him that the harem fantasy was related to his strained relationship with Jada. ‘I guess I felt if I had enough women, I’d always be able to find at least one of them who liked me,’ Smith recalled in his book.
‘If I can’t figure out how to nurture and nourish one extraordinary woman, what the f*** made me think I could care for 25?’
This old video from Red Table Talk shows Jada Pinkett trying to convince Ayesha Curry to cheat on her husband, Steph Curry. This is the infamous session where Ayesha said she wished she got more attention from other men because her husband wasn’t enough.
When it comes to faith, family, finances and fame, 30-year-old celebrity chef and restaurateur, Ayesha Curry, has all those boxes checked.
Yet, the Christian wife of NBA player Stephen Curry, has publicly expressed dissatisfaction over not receiving enough male attention from men that are not her husband—something she confessed during a recent episode of the popular web series, Red Table Talk.
“Something that really bothers me and like honestly has given me a sense of a little bit of insecurity is the fact that, yeah, like, there all these women like throwing themselves [at my husband]. But me, I don’t have any of that. Like, I have zero—it sounds weird—but, like, male attention,” explained Ayesha.
“And so then I like begin to internalize it, and I’m like, is something wrong with me?” she added.
Jada empathized with the predicament because she’s been in it herself.
Jada spoke about her nontraditional thoughts on marriage and tried to plant the seed in Ayesha that it is ok to get some outside loving.
Ironically around this time even though no one knew Sonya Curry was having an affair with one of her husband Dell Curry’s friends Steven Johnson.
