Thanksgiving is a time to reflect, give back and enjoy family gatherings. It's also that one time of the year to share recipes with your husband's ex-wives.

Jada Pinkett Smith (left) is preparing for the holidays by exchanging recipe ideas with Will Smith's ex-wife Sheree Zampino (right).

The actress, her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne Banfield Norris were joined by Sheree for a recent episode of the trio's online show Red Table Talk, ahead of the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.

"We've invited our favorite cook in the family to share her secret holiday recipes," Jada says in a new clip for the show, which will air on Tuesday, before Sheree appears in the star's kitchen.

"Miss Ree here hooks us up," Jada says. "She gets down in the kitchen!" adds Adrienne.

In the episode, Sheree shares her recipes and tips on how blended families can enjoy the holidays.

Sheree and Will, who share a 28-year-old son named Trey, divorced in late 1995, while the actor and Jada wed in 1997.

Sheree previously appeared on the Facebook Watch show in 2018, during which she and Jada discussed the friendship that has developed between them over the years.

Cuban-American singer-songwriter Gloria Estefan is bringing her personal family drama to the Red Table by launching her own "Red Table Talk" series.

Gloria's new web series, titled "Red Table Talk: The Estefans," is a spin-off from Jada Pinkett Smith's popular Facebook Watch web series, which Gloria will co-host with her daughter, singer Emily Estefan and her niece Lili.

Gloria, 63, wants to break taboos in the Latin community by tackling Emily's coming out story in an upcoming Red Table episode.

"Emily came out three years ago," Gloria told The Talk on Tuesday, "and no one knows because we really never had the reason or opportunity to talk about how we dealt with it as a family."

Emily is pictured with her parents Gloria and Emilio Estefan at The Cutting Room on February 8, 2017 in New York City.

Gloria continued: "It was important for [Emily] to talk about it (on 'Red Table') and it was important for us to put it on the table. We share so much of our personal lives and private lives through (social media) that we wanted to use it in a good way, a healing way."

The "Turn The Beat Around" singer notes the LGBT discussion "got a little heated here and there" and her niece even had to be "kind of the referee".

"It's important, because some people are going through these types of things. We hope to at least get it out there and speak about it, especially in the Latin community. So many things are taboo - like everything is taboo. My mother never even kissed my father 'til they were married by the church."

Emily, pictured with her famous parents in 2010, is a talented singer-songwriter who plays multiple musical instruments. She revealed her LGBT lifestyle in interviews last year and has performed at the 2019 Miami Beach Pride, Essence, SXSW, and GroundUp Music Festivals. The 25-year-old graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in 2016.

Red Table Talk: The Estefans premieres on Wednesday. Watch the sneak peek trailer below.

August Alsina is taking advantage of the buzz surrounding his past affair with Jada Pinkett Smith by dropping a new track, appropriately titled "Entanglements."

The R&B crooner recruited rapper Rick Ross to add his personal views about entanglements with married women.

The lovestruck singer proves he still hasn't gotten over Jada - even though she and her husband, Will Smith, have gotten over him and moved on.

"The definition of entanglement / It's?when?you're tangled in?the sheets / Girl I know?that we don't call it a relationship / But you're still f—in' with me," Alsina sings.

Alsina even taunts Will on the track, singing, "I'm on my way, yeah / I'ma pull up when he dip / He's always think me and you f—in' / If he see me, he gon' trip."

Will and Jada recently cleared the air about Jada's fling on her popular web series "Red Table Talk."

Will Smith denied giving Alsina permission to pursue his wife, and Jada claimed the affair happened during a "break" in her marriage.

"What August was actually trying to communicate — because I could actually see how he would perceive it as permission because we were separated amicably — I think he also wanted to make it clear that he's not a homewrecker, which he's not," Jada said.

A loyal reader uncovered an old post that appears to validate August Alsina's statement that A-list actor Will Smith gave him permission to pursue his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, 4 years ago.

In an article first published on Dailymail.com in 2005, Will said he and his wife had reached an agreement to preserve their marriage while satisfying their needs at the same time.

The couple reportedly gave each other permission to sleep with other partners, as long as they didn't go behind the other spouse's back.

Will said to get your wife's permission first before you cheat. He added that desiring another partner is only natural.

"Our perspective is, you don't avoid what's natural," he said in 2005.

"You're going to be attracted to people. In our marriage vows, we didn't say forsaking all others".

"The vow that we made was that you will never hear that I did something after the fact. If it came down to it, then one can say to the other, 'Look, I need to have sex with somebody. I'm not going to if you don't approve of it - but please approve of it'."

The father of three said, even though he and Jada saw other people, he never fell out of love with her.

"I don't let a day go past that Jada doesn't feel like the Queen of the World," Will said.

"I make sure every single day that she knows how I feel about her."

Howard Stern dragged singer August Alsina for gossiping about his extramarital affair with actress Jada Pinkett Smith.

Stern, who returned to the airwaves on Monday following a 2-week vacation, said Alsina should stop talking publicly about Jada, who is still married to A-list actor Will Smith.

"What a f–king dickwad," said Stern on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show. "Dude, you got to f**k Jada Pinkett Smith. By the way, put me in that line. That girl is hot."

Neither Stern nor his sidekick Robin Quivers mentioned Alsina's name on the air.

"She f–king banged you. How nice of her,” Stern, 66, said of the 48-year-old actress. "I mean look at her."

Alsina, 27, said Will Smith gave him his "blessing" to pursue his wife. Will and Jada later confirmed the relationship happened during a "break" in their marriage.

Stern said Alsina put Jada in the uncomfortable position of talking about her infidelity publicly on her web series Red Table Talk last week.

"Now she's got to go on Facebook and sit here and explain herself to Will Smith and her kids and her mother," Stern said. "What did she do that was so horrible to this guy that he has to f–k her life up?"

Stern said he believed Alsina is jealous of Will and Jada Smith. "You know what beef is? 'I'm not famous -- I f*cked Jada Pinkett Smith,'" said Stern, who added, "I still don't know your name, a**hole. You did a bonehead thing."

Page Six reportedly exclusively that since their revealing discussion at the Red Table, the power couple flew to the Bahamas for some private time.

August Alsina is proof that men can be just as messy as women. He came for Keke Palmer when she inserted herself into his relationship drama with former love partner Jada Pinkett Smith, 48.

The drama unfolded after power couple Will Smith, 51, and Jada brought themselves to the red table to discuss her shameful infidelity with August 4 years ago.

August was a troubled, drug-addicted, mentally-addled young man with mommy issues. He fell right into Jada's trap after her son, Jaden Smith, introduced them and she offered to help August with his drug dependency issues (she eventually helped herself to his hot body).

Former singer and talk show host Keke Palmer (Strahan, Sara and Keke) inserted herself into the drama, tweeting: "The theme is boundaries. Everybody doesn't need to know your business, that's not fake it's honoring one's privacy."

She followed that up with:

"Protect your partner.
Protect your privacy.
Protect your peace."

Then someone in August's camp dropped this throwback photo on Twitter that shows Keke and August riding in a car together.

The user captioned the B&W image: "this you?".

Keke responded, "Yes girl. August was never my man lol. That's why you're still reaching to this day to figure out nothing."

But August was not having that. He reminded Keke how she lusted after him - and "got curved" by him - when he was busy blowing Jada's back out.

August, 27, insinuated that Keke, 26, had mental problems of her own, and that perhaps she was even stalking him.

"U absolutely right. I was NEVER ur man. You could possibly never shortie. It seems u mad u got curved, but ur "friends" r the reason 4 that. Dey showed me an endless thread of txt/pics of me dat u sent, wrry'd abt who i date & BEGGED me 2 not further disturb ur mental instability."

But wait, he wasn't done dragging Keke all over his timeline:

"Imagine not knowing how to mind the business that pay you. I catch all the subliminals. (Not just about today) & you can call me whatever you like, Mess is constantly inserting yourself in topics you have nun to do w/. Go play w/ ya MAMMY! Not me!"

"If you have something to say, say it w/ ya CHEST kids.
It's always very perplexing cause I real deal be showing people genuine love. Whole time that envy eating ya lil heart.
Anyway, NEXT!!"

Will Smith has been in a lot of pain for a long time. While fans assumed his marriage to actress Jada Pinkett Smith was rock solid, the couple was going through a rough patch due to Jada's extramarital affair with troubled singer August Alsina.

In a video clip from 2018 that resurfaced online, Will poured out his heart about love and happiness lost during Jada's emotional affair with August.

Facebook

"Love. I asked her what was one of the biggest revelations she had had about love. She said you cannot make a person happy. I thought that was a real deep idea," said Will.

"You can make a person smile, you can make a person feel good, you can make a person laugh, but whether a person is happy is deeply utterly and completely out of your control.

"I remember the day I retired. I literally said to Jada, 'That's it. I retire. I retire from trying to make you happy. I need you to go make yourself happy and just prove to me it's even possible.'"

Will was passionate as he recalled the love he had for Jada in the beginning: "We came into this false romantic concept that somehow when we got married we would become one. What we realized is that we were two completely separate people on two completely separate individual journeys and that we were choosing to walk our separate journeys together.

"But her happiness was her responsibility and my happiness was my responsibility. And we decided that we were gonna find our individual, internal private separate joy and then we were going to present ourselves to the relationship and to each other already happy.

"Not coming to each other begging with our empty cups out demanding that she fills my cup and demanding that she meets my needs.

"It's unfair and it's kind of unrealistic. And it can be destructive to place the responsibility for your happiness on anybody other that yourself."
 

Will finally got his chance to force Jada to confess her infidelities in front of millions of shocked viewers on Friday.

Will and Jada brought themselves to the Red Table on Facebook to discuss the allegations that she took advantage of drug-addled singer August Alsina to satisfy her own sexual needs.

Jada admitted in so many words that the affair happened -- but only after Will pressed her to admit her "entanglement" was actually an extramarital relationship.

The 51-year-old actor didn't let Jada slide the first time she mentioned an "entanglement" with the virile 27-year-old stud during a "break" in their marriage.

"This is your red table and you, like, brought yourself to the red table," said Will. "I think, um, you need to say clearly what happened.

"As far as what?" asked Jada, getting mildly defensive.

"You and I decided we were gonna take our space - and then what happened? asked Will with a smirk on his face.

An impatient Jada repeated: "Yeah, and then I got into an entanglement with August. That's what I said."

"An entanglement?" said Will, as they both cracked up laughing.

"A relationship," said Will, as 48-year-old Jada finally admitted she was romantically involved with August.

"I was done wit' 'cho ass. I was done wit' you," Will told Jada.

"You gon' get me back? I think you got me back," Jada laughed. "I think we're good on that, okay?"

To which her husband replied, "Okay, that's probably true."

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith finally brought themselves to the Red Table to discuss the August Alsina allegations that she had a torrid love affair with August for years.

In an interview with NY radio personality Angela Yee, August said Will Smith gave him his "blessing" to pursue the lonely actress.

Jada admitted in so many words that the affair happened -- during a break in her marriage to Will -- but she never needed her husband's blessing to get her back blown out by a young stud.

"I felt like it was really important to come to the table and clear the air," Jada said on her popular Facebook Watch show. Added Smith, "We were purposely not saying anything... We specifically never said anything. So coming to the table was like, we just felt like it got to the point where you gotta say something."

Will took his wife's usual position at the table and interviewed her about the events that rocked social media.

The couple stated they "befriended" August, who had addictions to drugs and "just needed some help" with his mental health issues.

Eventually, Jada and Will went through a rough patch. "We broke up," as Will put it.

"We decided that we were going to separate for a period of time and you go figure out how to make yourself happy and I'll figure out how to make myself happy," Will said.

It was during that time that Jada and August grew closer -- if you hear August tell it.

Jada explains that she "got into a different kind of entanglement with August."

She said she wanted to make one thing clear: Her husband never gave her permission to pursue the young stud in a relationship, because it was not his to give.

"The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself," she said. "But what August was probably trying to communicate - because I could actually see how he would perceive it as permission, because we were separated amicably. And I think he also wanted to make it clear that he's not a home-wrecker. Which he's not."

Jada admitted she was a broken woman after her husband left her.

"I was very broken. Now in the process of that relationship, I definitely realized that you can't find happiness outside of yourself. And luckily enough, you and I were also going through a process of healing in a much different manner," she told Will.

Jada admitted the relationship - or an "entanglement" as she calls it - with August made her feel younger and scratched an itch she had for years.

"I just wanted to feel good. It had been soooo long since I felt good. And it was really a joy to just help heal somebody. I think that has a lot to do with my codependency. Which is another thing that I had to learn to break in this cycle... There's something about that childhood trauma that feels as though it can be fixed through fixing people. Versus fixing me."

During their conversation, Will and Jada laughed about the experience. "I think it could be weird for people that we're laughing and talking about it," Will said, "But --"

"It happened so long ago," Jada explained.

"And our experiences of working through it, fighting through it, talking through it, and therapizing through it," Will said.

At another point, Smith joked, "I'ma get you back [for the relationship]."

"You gon' get me back? I think you got me back," Jada laughed. "I think we're good on that, okay?"

To which her husband replied, "Okay, that's probably true."

Singer August Alsina insists he gave former lover Jada Pinkett Smith "advanced notice" that he was going public with the salacious details of their alleged love affair.

The musician hit headlines last week after claiming he was involved in a torrid secret romance with Jada for years -- and he even received the blessing of the actress' husband of 23 years, Will Smith.

FayesVision/WENN.com

Alsina, 27, defended his decision to go public. He explained in an Instagram post on Friday, July 3, that he needed to share the truth to free himself from "oppression" and "the invisible walls of silent societal construct".

In the lengthy note, the "No Love" singer argues the backlash to his comments only serves to fuel his search to be his true self and "reach the gift of harmony within myself".

He goes on to insist he didn't betray anyone's trust, as he gave the Smiths advance notice of his candid interview with New York radio personality Angela Yee.

Joseph Okpako/WireImage

"My heart has no malice or hate toward anyone on this planet," he states. "I just simply want the chains off & I'm willing to DIE getting there. The gift of freedom is yours to have, God promises us that, but only if you're willing...

"i should also say that, no one was side swiped by any conversation, everyone got courtesy calls time in advance. Wishing Everyone Big Love!"

The Girls Trip star's rep dismissed the allegations as "absolutely not true", but Jada, 48, subsequently teased an upcoming tell-all episode of her Red Table Talk Facebook series.

Will Smith's sister, Ellen Smith added her 2 cents to the ongoing drama involving her old brother and his wife, actress Jada Pinkett Smith.

Will and Jada denied singer August Alsina's allegations that he was involved in a years-long affair with the mother of two.

The 27-year-old claimed Will gave him his blessing to pursue his lonely wife.

In a cryptic post on Instagram, Ellen Smith wrote:

"Those you follow and admire so much promoting truth & "keeping it real" don't seem so admirable right now huh?"

She captioned the post:

"Good afternoon all. I keep having this conversation lately. My only response is research your hero's [sic], roll models [sic] and your advisors. Everyone has a past. Some whose are relevant to the present. Pay attention please on your journey and in life. Use your intuition and discernment. If their energy feels off it probably is. People will be wolves in sheep’s clothing pretending to help you but really manipulating a situation or person to suit their own malicious needs. #staywoke."

The message, which doesn't mention her famous brother or sister-in-law, seems to suggest that somebody is lying about Jada and August's secret love affair.

Ellen, 49, is a twin who allegedly claimed she was estranged from her brother Will because he was ashamed of her dark skin.

Will, 51, is the second oldest of 4 siblings.
