Jada Pinkett Smith credits Oprah Winfrey with Red Table Talk success

Jada Pinkett Smith has credited Oprah Winfrey with making her show ‘Red Table Talk’ possible.

The 48-year-old actress launched her Facebook Watch series – where she stars alongside her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones and daughter Willow Smith, as well as a host of special guests – in 2018, and has said it’s thanks to her mentor Oprah that she was able to get the show-up and running.

Posting a professional picture of herself and Oprah during a red carpet event on Instagram, Jada wrote: “This woman beside me is the only reason @RedTableTalk could even be imagined. Thank you @Oprah and congrats [photo]: @jas ”

Jada’s post comes after Oprah, 65, was honored at the grand opening of Tyler Perry’s historic film studio, Tyler Perry Studios, in Atlanta, Georgia over the weekend.

The 50-year-old actor named a soundstage in Oprah’s honor, where a three-course seated dinner was hosted.

Speaking about Tyler’s studio – which also honored other African American stars such as John Singleton, Spike Lee, Denzel Washington, Will Smith, Halle Berry, Sidney Poitier, Whoopi Goldberg, Cicely Tyson, and Harry Belafonte – Oprah said: “Tyler is my little big brother. To see him rise to this moment that I know he’s dreamed about, planned, defined, clarify for himself, it’s just a fulfillment of a dream. It’s wonderful to see.”

Meanwhile, Jada recently had her whole family – including husband Will Smith, son Jaden Smith, and stepson Trey Smith – on an episode of ‘Red Table Talk’, where they spoke about Will’s decision to go on a diet after his family began calling him “Pudge Muffin”.

He said: “I couldn’t believe I got to 50 years old without knowing you literally are what you eat. I eat food like an addict. I love food, but I realized my relationship with food was I eat for fun. I eat for joy.”
