Adrienne Banfield-Norris shares her thoughts on her family’s Red Table Talk interview Olivia Jade GiannulliNow that a few weeks have passed since this episode.
The Pinkett Smith family matriarch appeared on the Keep It podcast on Wednesday, December 23, where she was asked about Olivia’s appearance earlier this month on the Facebook Watch show, which Adrienne is co-hosting with family members Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow Smith.
“It was frustrating, but at the end of the day I felt that people understood how I was feeling,” 67-year-old mother Jada told People.
Adrienne stated that Olivia “handled the situation well,” although she still felt the 21-year-old social media personality could use a little more sensitivity to other people’s perspectives.
“There were some things that were a little frustrating,” she continued. “As a 21-year-old young adult, I felt that she needed to be a lot more aware of what was going on in the world, and that was a little frustrating.”
Adrienne said she rejects any feeling that it is just a lack of evening news that could prevent a young person from becoming aware of their status in the larger world.
