I remember when Will Smith left his first wife for Jada Pinkett Smith, that was a very bitter time, especially for his high school sweetheart turned wife Sheree Zampino Fletcher. During the premiere of Jada’s show Red Table Talk, the two had a nice heart to heart, making mends of the past.
Jada reveled because of not understanding marriage or divorce for that matter she should’ve fell back, she expressed regret for dating Will back in 1995 before his divorce was finalized…
‘Because I did not understand marriage. I didn’t understand divorce. I will say that I probably should’ve fell back,’ the Baltimore-born beauty admitted. At that, Sheree snapped: ‘You think?’
Jada explained how it took time for her to realize that she was behaving ‘insensitively’ and ‘inconsiderately’ as their marriage was ‘unwinding’ and she was just ‘trying to get in there.’
Smith and Fletcher laughed while recalling one of their lowest points exchanging ‘fighting words’ over the phone and hanging up on each other.
‘I called back and happened to say, “B***h, you living in the house I picked out!” And you said, “It’s my house now,”‘ Sheree laughed, in hindsight. Thank you for loving my baby…I’ll tell you, on this side of things, my son could not have a better bonus mom.’
December 31 marked Jada and Will’s 20th wedding anniversary and they are the proud parents of son Jaden, 19; and daughter Willow, 17.
