Domestic abuse was the topic of this week’s Red Table Talk. Adrienne Banfield Norris opened up about her relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith’s father, Rob. She said he had a tendency to get violent when he was either high or drunk. While Jada knew the stories, it was Willow’s first time hearing about her grandfather.
Adrienne’s hairdresser from Baltimore, Crystal, was a guest and she opened up about a recent abusive relationship. She said that he not only beat her up, but he also posted nude pictures of her that were seen by her daughter, Selena, and her friends. The final straw came when she finally posted a picture of a black eye he’d given her. Selena asked her to take the post down because she didn’t want either of them to be embarrassed when she took the abuser back.
Willow also had a private talk with Selena about how to handle being a child in that situation. The 14-year-old said, “Always be there for your mom. And make sure you put her first no matter what she made you go through…Always remember that it is your mom.”
- Next week, Toni Braxton will talk about divorce.
