Willow Smith Recalls Experiencing "Fits of Jealousy" During Discussion on Polyamory
In the next episode of Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and "Gammy" Adrienne Banfield-Norris will explore polyamory and Willow's decision to practice non-monogamy.
In a conversation about being with multiple partners, the women of Red Table Talk started looking inward.
In the newest upcoming episode of Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and "Gammy" Adrienne Banfield-Norris' hit Facebook Watch show, the co-hosts are set to explore the topic of polyamory. With the title "Is Polyamory For You?," the episode will feature Willow's take on her decision to practice ethical non-monogamy and, according to an episode description, a "lively generational debate on marriage and monogamy," including Gammy's attempt to understand her granddaughter's decision.
During a teaser clip exclusively shared with E! News, Gammy and Willow get candid about what being in a polyamorous relationship would require for themselves, specifically when it comes to jealousy.
"I would have so much work to do on myself to be in a polyamorous relationship," Adrienne said. "Jealousy is nothing but your own insecurity."
Willow understood that firsthand. "I did things that I said I would never do when I was in my fits of jealousy," the 20 year old confirmed, "and that made me realize just how much I need to step back and work on myself."
Polyamory is not a foreign subject to the Red Table. In 2019, the trio sat down with a throuple and Willow opened up about how she would see the dynamics of genders if she were in a consensual polyamorous relationship or open relationship.
"I love men and women equally and so I would definitely want one man, one woman," Willow, then 18, explained. "I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people. I'm not the kind of person that is constantly looking for new sexual experiences. I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I were to find two people of the different genders that I really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I don't feel like I would feel the need to try to go find more."
Anthony Mackie Complains His New Action Figure Looks Too Much Like This Oscar Winner
Anthony Mackie saw his new Falcon and the Winter Soldier action figure for the first time on The Late Show, but he didn't seem convinced that it looked like himself.
Anthony Mackie's reaction to seeing his new action figure for the first time was captured on TV, but he appeared to have some constructive criticism.
The 42-year-old Falcon and the Winter Soldier star was a guest on The Late Show on Monday, April 26, where host Stephen Colbert surprised the actor with something he hadn't yet laid eyes upon. The toy unveiling came after Anthony was revealed as the new Captain America during the Disney+ series' season finale last week.
"I've got something that I have been told you have not seen yet, but it's pretty awesome," Stephen said as he pulled out the boxed plaything. "This is your action figure."
A stunned Anthony replied, "No, shut up!" He added, "Where did you get that?"
This led Stephen to quip, "I don't know, I work in TV. They give me things." He went on to demonstrate the toy's features by explaining, "The wings are foldable, like this."
Anthony's initial reaction was, "That's dope." However, after getting a better look, it didn't seem like he was too blown away by the craftsmanship.
"Let me see," he continued. "From this distance, he looks more like Jamie Foxx than me." After a long pause, the actor laughed before ultimately concluding about the figure, "That's dope."
Stephen also asked the Marvel star if he had any enhancement to his muscular physique on the show.
"I will say, there's no muscle suit under my suit," Anthony replied. "That's my pride. Seven movies in, I'm like, I don't want a muscle suit under my suit. So I had to work out every day, all day."
When the host said he assumed Anthony had to exercise even harder for this show to get the triangular shape he has to his body, the Hurt Locker star agreed. "I had to get the Dorito," he exclaimed. "That's what it's called—shoulders to waist."
