There’s some healing that needs to happen…so I’m bringing myself to The Red Table.

According to Deadline, the latest episode of her show featuring only herself and husband Will Smith garnered more than 15 million views in the first 24 hours, which broke the previous record of 7.6 million views in the first 24 hours that was held by the Red Table Talk episode featuring Jordyn Woods.
I brought myself to the table last week but decided to hold the episode out of respect for the far more important situations that have been happening around us. pic.twitter.com/jltGuJ2bWU

This episode gained so many views because of the situation surrounding Jada, Will, and R&B artist August Alsina. August revealed in an interview with Angela Yee earlier that he had been in a relationship with Jada seemingly at the same time that she was married to Will.
Because of this news, social media was in a frenzy jumping to different conclusions on the status of Jada and Will’s marriage, whether August was lying or not, and seeking answers, which prompted Jada to address the rumors by “bringing [herself] to The Red Table.”
