Gloria Estefan shows up at the ‘red table’, tangles are damned

gloria Estefan is wary of the Red Table. “What were we guys saying?” she asks her niece, talk show host Lili Estefan, and daughter, musician Emily Estefan, who are gathered for a conference call. “It’s the color of the table!” Lili said, as if she accused a tint of witchcraft furniture. “Or they drug us!” Emily adds. Laughing, Gloria has the last word. “They inject us with truth serum.”

The point is, there is something mystical about the Red Table, or perhaps at least about the candid and outspoken women who agree to “get there”, to use the verbiage as the place of. iconic gathering won.

Since 2018, actress Jada Pinkett-Smith, her daughter Willow and her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris – three generations of women from the same family – have sat down to Discussion on the red table, the Facebook Watch talk show which launches its first spin-off on October 7 with Red table: the Estefans.

The daily beast is obsessed

Everything we can’t stop loving, hating, and thinking about this week in pop culture.

“When Jada came to me about it, I already thought the show was awesome,” Gloria says. “Like, innovative and revolutionary, being able to actually speak without interruption, without having to make a sound sample, without having to sell a product.”

Calling the conversations that Pinkett-Smith and her family revealed or unfiltered would be like calling the debates on View orderly and polite speech. No other talk show finds its hosts unveiling their deepest secrets and most vulnerable truths in the depths of the show’s three seasons.

They discussed porn addiction, sexuality, racism and gun violence. In memorable episodes, Gabrielle Union has come to the table to expose a 17-year feud with Pinkett-Smith rooted in the industry’s rivalry as black women; Ellen Pompeo spoke about her interracial marriage and white privilege; Leah Remini came to bury the hatchet on her hint that Pinkett-Smith had Scientology ties; and Jordyn Woods, Kylie Jenner’s best friend, shared her side of the story when she was accused of kissing Tristan Thompson, Khloé Kardashian’s ex and her daughter’s father.

In a rarity when it comes to this kind of show, the headline gossip is seen as an added bonus, not the central mission or reason to watch: rather, it’s the shocking franchise of the Pinkett family. -Smith. Of course, these two attributes sometimes collide.

The Red Table has also proven to be a useful, albeit uncomfortable, tool for discussing the family’s headline gossip, as it was this summer when Pinkett-Smith came with her husband Will Smith to the table to discuss the tabloid bombshell reports that she was having an affair. with singer August Alsina, with, says Alsina, Smith’s blessing.

The episode of “entanglement,” as it came to be called after Pinkett-Smith comically characterized the relationship – which occurred when she and Smith were separated – as “an entanglement”, has been seen over and over again. 35 million times. This makes the episode’s very personal and very juicy content now the first thing on fans’ minds when the Estefans launch their Red table: the Estefans Wednesday at 12 p.m. ET – which is certainly an interesting position.

“I know you want to know,” Lili said laughing. “We left our entanglement episode for season 2.”
