Jada Pinkette Smith, her 20-year-old daughter Willow Smith and Pinkett Smith’s mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, a.k.a. “Gammy,” launched a new season of their Facebook Watch series on Wednesday, and wow, did we learn a great deal.
Before the couple joined the show, the Smiths and Banfield-Norris had a conversation about women falling in love with women.
“I’ve swooned a lot, I will say that … I’ve had two times [when] I’ve been infatuated with a woman,” Pinkett Smith said, adding that it happened when she was around 20 years old.
Her mother, Banfield-Norris, said, “I just never allowed myself to even experiment with it.”
“And I know I’ve thought about, ‘Oh wow, a threesome might be really enjoyable,’ but just could never,” she said. “You know how I was raised, with all that guilt and shame around sex, so I definitely didn’t have the freedom to consider it, as far as love is concerned.”
When Nash joined the conversation, she explained that she had never considered being with a woman prior to getting involved with Betts.
“I’ve dated men all my life, too. Married a couple of ’em,” said Nash who was married twice before. “But it was the first time in my life I had ever felt fully seen.”
Nash joked that she has yet to receive a welcome packet from the LGBTQ+ community she’s now a part of, even as she doesn’t really label herself.
“LGBTQ-plus-Niecy,” she said.
