She was wearing a stylish blue tie-dye printed cropped tank top and matching leggings during the outdoor session and was on a yoga mat while green grass and shrubs could be seen behind her,

“< @fpmovement / @freepeople >,” she captioned the post, most likely referring to her outfit’s brand, and it didn’t take long for her followers to comment on the cool snapshot. “imma need a yoga class with you,” one follower wrote while another called her move “so perfect.” A third referred to the pic as “beautiful” while a fourth pointed out that she’s “mastering” her “body.”

Willow’s yoga pic comes just two months after she wowed fans with a sneak peek at her lingerie look for Rihanna‘s Savage X Fenty fashion show. The brunette beauty showed off a photo of herself flaunting a black silk pajama button-down top, black lace panties and fishnet stockings in the Oct. 1 post and gave a fierce look to the camera. She promoted the show in the caption for the pic and left followers in awe of her gorgeous physical and facial features.

Willow’s fit figure in her latest pics doesn’t come as too much of a surprise since the young star is known for working out on a regular basis. In Sept., she posted a mirror selfie that showed her standing in her workout outfit, which included a gray sports bra and matching leggings, as various weights were behind her. The pic was most likely taken in a home gym as her dog could also be seen being adorable in the background.

We look forward to seeing more awesome and inspirational photos of Willow showing off her flexibility and toned abs! Whether she’s in the middle of a yoga pose in a pic or just posing before and after her intense workout, she is definitely helping others want to achieve their own fitness goals and we love it!

Janet Hubert Admits Decades-Long Feud With Will Smith Felt Like ‘Being In Prison For 27 Years’

The actress who originally played Aunt Viv on ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ reveals what it feels like to finally end her bitter war of words with her TV nephew.

For nearly three decades Janet Hubert, 64, has been trying to salvage her reputation. Now, after HBO Max premiered its Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion special, she feels like a wrongfully convicted murderer who has finally succeeded in convincing the world that she’s innocent. Since it started streaming on Nov. 19, fans have watched as Janet hugged and shed tears with her former on-screen nephew, Will Smith, finally putting to bed a lengthy, bitter feud.

“People keep asking, ‘How do you feel?’” Janet says. “And I [say], ‘Like a person who’s been in prison for 27 years, who knew they didn’t rob the bank; who knew they didn’t kill or murder that person and everybody has accused you.’”

It gets better. Not only does Janet feel a sense of peace, the reconciliation that she and Will, 52, had in front of the camera wasn’t just for show. Since they reconnected back in September the actress says they’ve remained in contact.

“Will and I have been corresponding and texting back and forth. It’s just wonderful to have this weight, this albatross from around my neck that was only put there by the media, the cast, talk show hosts,” she tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.

Janet has good reason to be upset, to “despise fame.” When The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air burst on to the scene in 1990 it was a huge hit. While it turned a young rapper from Philly into a bankable, Oscar-nominated Hollywood star, it brought Janet – an acclaimed Broadway actress – worldwide exposure and legions of fans. As Will’s on-screen Aunt Viv, she was poised and elegant, boasted a perfect bone structure, quick wit and a sharp tongue. She didn’t suffer fools and could slay her enemies with a cold glare.

But she was fun too. The fictional college professor who lived in Bel-Air with her lawyer husband and their three children, could get down with the best of them and was willing to whip off her earrings to fight if she had to.

Then, she was gone. From Season 4 onwards, actress Daphne Maxwell Reid took on the role. “The misconception of me was that I was haughty, difficult, wanted to be the star of the show,” Janet said on the reunion special. That bad reputation haunted her and she lost everything, including her home.

The truth, Janet says, was far different. In reality, she said on the HBO Max reunion, she’d only been offered a 10-week contract that prohibited her from working for anyone else. It was a deal that she couldn’t afford to take. She also said that she was “banished” to her dressing room between takes because she didn’t laugh at Will’s jokes. For his part, on the reunion special he seemed stunned to find out that, pregnant and in an unhappy marriage, she was facing her own challenges. Laughing and joking on set was not at the forefront of her mind.

But the myth of Janet being difficult to work with persisted until very recently and it was this that partly prompted her to set the wheels in motion that led to the reconciliation. During an August 2020 interview on the Hip Hop Uncensored podcast, Joseph Marcell (who played Geoffrey, the British butler on the show) said that, while he “respected” Janet, she struggled to accept that Will was the sitcom’s star. “I feel that perhaps Janet was not able to deal with that,” he said.

“[That] really put me in hell,” Janet says of the interview, “and I was trying to understand why he did it.” Around the same time she found out about the HBO Max special. She wrote to the network and to Red Table Talk, the Facebook Watch show that Will’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith, daughter Willow and mother-in-law Adrienne Banfield-Norris co-host. The actress had a challenge.

“I said, ‘Either you sit down with me and the cast sit down with me and we clear this, because only you and I, Will, know what really happened… or shut up for the rest of your life about it because I’m tired of it and I’m not going to serve…another 30-year sentence for something that I did not do.’”

To her surprise Will and his team actually wanted her on the reunion special. Within a day of getting that information Janet was on a plane from her home in New Jersey to film the reunion in Los Angeles.

Looking back on their feud Janet believes that “a lot of misunderstanding” was created by she and Will not “being able to sit down and talk honestly.” “Power can really make you, sometimes close your ears,” she says. “All one thinks about when one has power over everyone’s life is maybe themselves. And he owned that and I respect that, highly.”

In a bittersweet twist the reunion that was 27 years in the making could have happened back in 2009 when Janet says she reached out to Will to make peace. It was a message he said was not passed on to him. This year, however, the time was right.

“He’s a different person and I’m a different person and I want healing,” Janet says. “It’s 2020 and after the evils of President Donald Trump, four years of that, and COVID, I don’t want this ugly in my life anymore.” Or, as she put it at the end of a Nov. 19 tweet after the show premiered, “Life is too short.”

In the upcoming episode of ‘Red Table Talk’ Jessica Alba responds to the backlash she received after sharing a pic of her kids wearing face masks.

Jessica Alba, 39, is revealing what it is like to be mom-shamed when you’re a mother living in the public eye.

In an upcoming episode of Red Table Talk the actress tells the co-hosts that she was even slammed for sharing a photo of her kids wearing face masks.

“I know this picture of you and your family caused some heat,” Jada Pinkett Smith says in the sneak peek above that HollywoodLife obtained EXCLUSIVELY. The image that the Red Table Talk co-host is referring to prompted some of Jessica’s fans to accuse her of “child abuse.”

The camera then highlights an Instagram photo of Jessica with her son Hayes Warren, 2, who is wearing a face mask while riding in a car. The pic is one of a series that the actress shared of her and her three kids with husband Cash Warren – including daughters Honor, 12, and Haven, 9 – during a July family vacation to Wyoming. “We consistently wore masks,” Jessica noted in the caption, which sparked the outrage.

“It’s just absolutely ludicrous that we’re living in a day and age where health is politicized. My mind is blown,” the L.A.’s Finest star tells the Red Table Talk co-hosts. Jada elaborates, saying, “The comment was, ‘What kind of person are you, doing such [an] unhealthy thing to your child. Are you paid for this????’ ‘That’s child abuse.’ Well, there you go.”

Jada’s mother and co-host, Adrienne Banfield Norris (aka Gammy) is clearly not impressed by the backlash. “You’re an ass. Moving on,” she says, reacting to the comment.

Jessica is just one of two celeb mom guests who discusses the sensitive issue of mommy-shaming during the episode, which goes live on Facebook Watch on Oct. 13 at 9am PT / 12pm ET. Ashley Graham, 32, also joins the conversation. The model became a first-time mother after giving birth to her little boy Isaac eight months ago. Since then she has faced intense backlash for breastfeeding her infant in public. “That’s also gross,” one follower responded to a Feb. 13 pic of her feeding her baby in a restaurant. The reaction has not stopped Ashley from posting similar photos.

August Alsina has no misgivings about his ‘entanglement’ with Jada Pinkett while she was separated from Will Smith. The singer says that he could ‘never regret being given the gift of experience and love.’

August Alsina is continuing to reminisce with warm feelings about his “entanglement” with still-married Jada Pinkett Smith. The 48-year-old actress used the term to describe her relationship with the young singer during a July 17 Facebook Watch Red Table Talk. The 27-year-old says that he doesn’t regret a thing about their time together, as it taught him what true love is. “I don’t regret it at all because I know that on this planet, there is not much harmony, and there is not much love, so when you’re actually given love, real love that you’ve never experienced, it is a gift,” he told Vulture in a new interview.

“No matter how complex or hard it may be to face or whatever, that’s the gift. I’m aware of that. I’m aware that I was gifted. It’s been a blessing to me, even the really hard parts and the tough parts of it,” August continued. The story of his involvement with Jada was first revealed on June 30, when August told The Breakfast Club‘s Angela Yee that, “I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really, deeply loved and have a ton of love for her (Jada). I devoted myself to it. I gave my full self to it.”

In further explaining why he has no regrets about his “entanglement” with Jada — who was secretly separated from movie superstar husband Will Smith51, at the time — August explained, “There is no right or wrong here. With there being no right or wrong, there is no regret. There’s nothing to regret because it’s not something I went searching for.

August then elaborated that he didn’t chase Jada because she was married, and that he wasn’t a victim either. “It’s not something I went after. I don’t go after people’s girls. Nobody preyed on me or was a predator towards me. This is none of that. It just is. It just was. So I don’t feel any reason to have regrets. Every lesson man, every, every relationship, every experience is a blessing. You learn from it, whether good or bad. I could never say that I regret being given the gift of experience and love. It’s a lesson.”

Jada revealed on RTT that, “Four and a half years ago…I started a friendship with August and we actually became really, really good friends,” Jada explained. “And it all started with him just needing some help, me wanting to help his health, his mental state.” She was joined by Will, and explained, “You and I were going through a very difficult time.” The I Am Legend star replied, “I was done with you.” Jada added, “We broke up. We decided that we were going to separate for a period of time.”

Then Jada used the now infamous “entanglement” term to describe what she had with August. “From there as time went on I got into a different kind of entanglement with August.” Jada explained that she and Will were “separated amicably,” and then clarified that when she used the term “entanglement,” that it was actually a “relationship,” admitting, “Yes, it was a relationship absolutely.” Will and Jada later went on to repair their marriage.

In his interview with Vulture, August had no problem with the “entanglement” label. “I don’t know why that word is such an issue. I would agree [with Jada]. If you look up the definition of ‘entanglement,’ it is a complex and difficult relationship. It was exactly that. I think it’s just the language that probably stuck out to people. But I definitely have to agree with it being an entanglement. It definitely was something complicated, a complicated dynamic.”

Megan Thee Stallion went live on Instagram with new pal Kylie Jenner, and came under fire for seemingly ‘betraying’ her friend Jordyn Woods.

Megan Thee Stallion is having a hot girl summer, and showed it off in a July 11 Instagram Live with Kylie Jenner. The Kylie Cosmetics mogul exclaimed “we’re going live!” as she popped into the video, pouted her lips, and flashed a peace sign at the camera. The pair were in a pool with a purple light during Megan’s livestream, and stunned in black and gold bikinis. But it wasn’t Megan’s glam makeup or pretty swimwear that caught the attention of fans — it was her new gal pal. The “Savage” rapper has been friends with Jordyn Woods since 2019, and fans of Keeping Up With The Kardashians would be familiar with the beef between the 22-year-old and her former BFF Kylie, following the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal.

“Wasn’t Megan just hanging out with Jordan,” one fan commented on a repost of the video, while another said, “Megan really that girl from high school that hangs out with everybody.” Others theorized that Kylie was “tryna replace jordyn with Megan” however some commended the songstress for being friendly with both women. “I like how Meg can hang out with Jordyn and Kylie. Unbothered. Some of y’all jealous friends need to take notes,” one wrote, while a second fan commented, “Megan is really good at networking and keeping business and personal ish separate.”

Jordyn and Megan have been spotted together on multiple occasions! Back in August 2019, the duo left Catch Nightclub together. The “Hot Girl Summer” hit-maker rocked a tiny, white crop which she paired with black leggings. She tossed a studded leather jacket on top and was looking effortlessly cool as she left the LA hot spot. Jordyn looked equally cool, and some fans commented that the pair seemed to be attached at the hip throughout the summer of 2019.

Jordyn and Kylie’s close relationship however, was ripped apart after the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal. Jordyn later apologized for the inappropriate kiss in an interview on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Red Table Talk. “I’m no home-wrecker,” Jordyn tearfully said in the interview. “I would never try to hurt someone’s home, especially someone that I love, and someone who has a beautiful daughter. I never tried to steal someone’s man.”

After calling herself to the ‘Red Table,’ Jada Pinkett Smith confirmed she and August Alsina did have a relationship, and Will Smith says it’s a ‘miracle’ that their marriage is still standing.

“One thing I’ll say about you and is, it’s there’s never been secrets,” Jada Pinkett Smith, 48, said to Will Smith, 51, during the July 10 episode of her Facebook Walk talk show, Red Table Talk. After singer August Alsina, 27, publicly claimed that he and Jada had a relationship, the normally private couple felt like they had to address these claims. In the talk, Jada did confirm that she had an “entanglement” with August, but it was during a time when she and Will were separated. “I was done with your a–,” laughed Will, before explaining that, at one point, they had separated so Jada could “go figure out how to make yourself happy and I’ll figure out how to make myself happy.”

“I really felt like we could be over,” said Will, stressing at how close he and Jada came to calling it quits. Later in the Red Table Talk, he pointed out that, “We came together young,” said Will, “and we were both broken in our own ways, and to be able to make mistakes without the fear of losing your family is so critical.” Jada responded by saying that “one of the things that I’m deeply grateful in this whole process between you and I is that we have really gotten to that new place of unconditional love.” To that, Will replied, “Cause’ I wasn’t sure I was ever going to speak to you again. The fact that I’m speaking to you again is a miracle.”

“You gotta go through some sh-t to get the answers,” added Jada. “I’m just happy because I definitely believe you and I never ever, ever thought we’d make it back.” Will said that he now feels “a real power” in knowing that he has someone is “riding with you no matter what, and you really can’t know that until you go through some stuff.”

 

Both Jada and Will noted that this separation (and her relationship with August) happened years ago and that they can laugh about it since it’s in the past. Will even joked about how he’s “gonna get you back first.” “I think you got me back,” she remarked. “I think we’re good on that.” They even ended on a Bad Boys quote – “We ride together. We die together. Bad Marriage for life.”

There have been rumors about Will and Jada’s marriage ever since they tied the knot in 1997. During August’s June 30 interview with Angela Lee, he claimed that he and Jada were romantically involved, and Will “gave me his blessing.” Will and Jada, during the Red Table Talk, denied that, but Jada suggested that August made those claims so he wouldn’t come off as a “homewrecker.” She also noted, “The only person who can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself.”

Just a day after his apology, an inappropriate video of Shane Dawson singing Willow Smith’s ‘Whip My Hair’ resurfaced. Jada Pinkett Smith tweeted she was ‘done with excuses.’

Shane Dawson, 31, is under fire again. The YouTube star began trending on Twitter on Saturday, June 27 — just a day after his massive apology video — as a 2010 clip of him featuring a Willow Smith song began circulating. In the video, Shane is seen staring at a poster of Willow — then 11-years-old — as he pretends to inappropriately touch himself while singing the lyrics to her song “Whip My Hair.” Willow’s mom Jada Pinkett Smith, 48, and brother Jaden Smith, 21, immediately responded to the resurfaced clip via Twitter on Saturday, June 27.

To Shane Dawson … I’m done with the excuses.

— Jada Pinkett Smith (@jadapsmith) June 27, 2020

SHANE DAWSON I AM DISGUSTED BY YOU. YOU SEXUALIZING AN 11 YEAR OLD GIRL WHO HAPPENS TO BE MY SISTER!!!!!! IS THE FURTHEST THING FROM FUNNY AND NOT OKAY IN THE SLIGHTEST BIT.

— Jaden (@jaden) June 27, 2020

Jada, who has been vocal throughout the Black Lives Matter movement on Red Table Talk, tweeted, “To Shane Dawson … I’m done with the excuses,” while Jaden expressed his anger and disgust in a series of posts. “SHANE DAWSON I AM DISGUSTED BY YOU. YOU SEXUALIZING AN 11 YEAR OLD GIRL WHO HAPPENS TO BE MY SISTER!!!!!! IS THE FURTHEST THING FROM FUNNY AND NOT OKAY IN THE SLIGHTEST BIT,” Jaden began. “IM SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS,” he also tweeted, including several cursing emojis.

It’s bad for him right now

— Jaden (@jaden) June 27, 2020

The Karate Kid star went on to mention Shane’s past inappropriate videos, including ones of him in blackface. “This Man Was Also Doing Black Face On The Regular,” Jaden wrote, adding several facepalm emojis. “As The Youth We Need To Support Creators Who Support Us And Our Morals. This Is Not Okay,” he poignantly said. Willow’s boyfriend Tyler Cole, 21, also jumped to her defense. “i’ll knock that white boy out [for real],” the Anxiety singer posted, as Jaden responded, “It’s bad for him right now.”

This Man Was Also Doing Black Face On The Regular🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️. As The Youth We Need To Support Creators Who Support Us And Our Morals. This Is Not Okay.

— Jaden (@jaden) June 27, 2020

On June 26, Shane addressed his millions of followers for past controversial videos, including several of him in blackface. “Blackface was something that I did…there’s literally no excuse. I made a video six years ago talking about it, and I gave excuses and I knew it was wrong and I knew I would never want to do it again, but I didn’t do the work. I didn’t actually look into the history of it and why it’s so wrong and why people were so upset…I’m so sorry,” he said in the lengthy clip.

“I’m sorry that I added to the normalization of blackface or the normalization of saying the n-word,” Shane also said. “No it’s not okay. And it’s not a funny word especially for a white person to say. Me as a white person wearing a wig and playing a character and doing stereotypes and saying the n-word is probably what I should have probably lost my career for, at the time. And there’s no amount of apologizing that can take it away,” he explained.

1. He’s one of YouTube’s earliest stars. Shane hit YouTube running with ShaneDawsonTV in 2018, and instantly become majorly popular. His earliest video, “Kermit the Frog and Me”, is still on his channel. But his most famous early video was “Fred is Dead!” which has 25 million views. His star power grew from there with movie parodies, sketches, and later, documentaries.

2. He now hosts Conspiracy Series with Shane Dawson. Currently, Shane is the host of a series that tackles famed conspiracy theories, including the “real” cause of the destructive 2018 Woolsey and Camp Fires in California, that Walt Disney is frozen underneath the castle at Disneyland, and that kids are being brainwashed by dark themes in cartoons. And that’s just the first episode. The second episode got a response from Chuck E. Cheese itself when he investigated the conspiracy that the kids’ restaurant “recycles” its uneaten pizza and sells it again to customers.

3. He tried his hand at television and music. Shane announced in 2010 that he shot a 30-minute pilot called SD High. That eventually fell through, but he revealed in 2011 that he was allegedly working with Adam Sandler‘s production company, Happy Madison. He stated in 2012 that he was working on a comedy-horror film, and later that year, revealed that he was set to direct a film. Again, in March 2012, he released a debut single, “SUPERLUV!’ In June 2012 he released a “breakup song,” called “The Vacation Song”, and later that year, “Wanna Make Love To You” hit charts.

4. He has apologized after making jokes about bestiality. Shane apologized over Twitter on March 17 after audio from a 2015 podcast surfaced in which he joked that he performed sex acts on his pet cat when he was 19. He issued a lengthy apology on Twitter, telling fans that he was absolutely joking, and that it was based on a “dumb awful sketch idea:

“I’ve never done anything weird with my cats, Shane tweeted. “I promised myself i wasn’t going to make apology videos after last years thing so i’m just trying to be as short and honest with this as possible. I’ve apologized many times for all the dumb shit i’ve said in videos and podcasts over the years. I’ve learned my lesson over and over again and Im more confident now in my ability to be entertaining by just being myself and not being so shocking for laughs. That story was fake and was based on a dumb awful sketch idea I had years ago that I never made (THANK GOD) and when the opportunity came up for a funny moment in the podcast I told it as if it was a real story which was DISGUSTING and VERY VERY DUMB.

“My goal with the podcast and with my videos years ago was to tell shocking stories that would make people laugh and scream ‘OMG NO U DIDNT!!’ and think I was ‘soooo crazy.’ Embarrassing and I f**king hate myself for it. Now that I’m making stuff i love and I’m being myself it feels so much better and i finally feel like I’m putting stuff out into the world that means something. I’m not saying I hate everything I’ve made over the years. There’s so many things I’m so proud of. But all of my offensive jokes, over the top stories, and insensitive jokes are something that still haunt me and something I have to be faced with every day on the internet. And it never gets easier.

“So I’m sorry for what i said about my cat, I’m sorry for what I said about anything or anyone that was offensive, and I’m sorry for being someone who thought being super offensive and shocking all the time was funny. I’m sorry for my past. But I’m really to make it right and I feel like without my past I wouldn’t be who I am today and I wouldn’t be able to grow & spend my energy on things that actually mean something. This has been the best 2 years of my life & it’s because I’ve been able to drop the act & be myself. And I’m sorry for not doing it sooner.”

5. He apologized for blackface videos. On June 26, Shane addressed his 23 million subscribers for past controversial videos, including several of him in blackface. “Blackface was something that I did a lot of…there’s literally no excuse,” he explained. “I made a video six years ago talking about it, and I gave excuses and I knew it was wrong and I knew I would never want to do it again, but I didn’t do the work. I didn’t actually look into the history of it and why it’s so wrong and why people were so upset…I’m so sorry,” he said in the lengthy 20 minute clip.

“I’m sorry that I added to the normalization of blackface or the normalization of saying the n-word,” Shane also said, explaining his sense of humor was rooted in the wrong place. “No it’s not okay. And it’s not a funny word especially for a white person to say. Me as a white person wearing a wig and playing a character and doing stereotypes and saying the n-word is probably what I should have probably lost my career for, at the time. And there’s no amount of apologizing that can take it away,” he explained.

Ahead of Father’s Day, Will Smith is admitting that the end of his first marriage to Sheree Zampino was devastating. He said nothing can touch the ‘failure’ he felt getting divorced from his toddler son’s mom.

Will Smith, and Jada Pinkett Smith have been one of Hollywood’s top power couples for so long that a lot of fans may forget that he was previously married to Sheree Zampino in the early 1990s. Their three-year union produced his 27-year-old son Trey Smith. The 51-year-old superstar now says that when that marriage crumbled and ended in divorce, it was the “ultimate failure” for him. Will made the surprising admission to wife Jada, 48, in a sneak peek clip from her Red Table Talk Father’s Day edition, airing on Facebook on Sunday, June 21.

Jada brings up the concept that, “Just because a man might not be the best husband doesn’t mean he’s not a good father.” Will literally spoke the last half of the line with her, knowing exactly where she was coming from. “With Sheree and Trey, that was a really difficult time,” he confessed about his 1992-1995 marriage to Sheree. Trey was born in 1992, and was a toddler when his folks split.

“Divorce was the worst thing in my adult life. Divorce was the ultimate failure for me. I’ve been hurt a lot in my adult life, but I don’t think anything touches the failure of getting divorced from my 2-year-old son’s mother,” Will emotionally confessed. Home video then rolled showing a young Will changing baby Trey’s diapers.

Will Smith and then-wife Sheree Zampino in the early 1990s. The couple married in 1992 and divorced in 1995. During that time Will was one of TV’s biggest stars, with his hit NBC sitcom, ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.’ Photo credit: Shutterstock.

Will and Jada met in 1994 when she auditioned for the role of his girlfriend on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Will’s wildly successful NBC sitcom. While she didn’t get the part, she got a new friend in the young star. When he and Sheree split, Will and Jada started dating. The couple married on Dec. 31, 2007 and went on to have two kids, son Jaden, 21, and daughter Willow, 19.

These days, Will’s first and second families get along just fine. Sheree was there with Trey, Jada, Jaden, Willow and the rest of their extended family when Will celebrated turning 50 by bungee jumping out of a helicopter above the Grand Canyon on Sept. 25, 2018. Sheree even had t-shirts and hoodies printed for her ex-husband’s big day. She showed them off in Instagram photos and wrote in the caption, “Will’s 50th at The Grand Canyon! The BIG WILLY 5.O. T-shirts were a HUGE hit!!!! Thank you @allprintingservicesinc for making my vision a “quick” reality!!!! And for helping to make @willsmith Birthday a little sweeter!” So all is well now, despite Will’s feelings of “failure” when they split.

It turns out that Garcelle Beauvais and Sheree Zampino share a mutual ex: Will Smith! Garcelle dropped this bombshell right in front of the ‘Aladdin’ star’s ex-wife on the May 20 episode of ‘RHOBH.’

Garcelle Beauvais, 53, talked about more than one ex on the May 20 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hill. While venting to five friends about how she was completely “blindsided” by her ex-husband Mike Nilon’s affair, the conversation took a surprise turn when Sheree Zampino, 52 — who made a guest appearance on Wednesday’s episode — brought up her ex-husband Will Smith, 51.

“My biggest obstacle would be, not hating this man,” Sheree advised, and Garcelle assured she “couldn’t hate” the father of her 12-year-old twin boys Jax and Jaid Nilon. Sheree then revealed she’s in the same situation with Will! “Will and I, when we got divorced, we have never had a relationship that doesn’t have Trey at the center of it,” Sheree said, referring to the 27-year-old son she shares with the I Am Legend star. At the mention of Will’s name, Garcelle couldn’t resist spilling her big secret: “You know, I…” Garcelle paused, not sure if the group was ready to hear this. Sheree already knew what was coming, because she gave Garcelle a push of encouragement: “You can say it.”

So, Garcelle revealed that she dated Will — much to the astonishment of the group! However, The Jamie Foxx Show alum assured that she romanced Will before he was married to Sheree between 1992-1995 (so, no girl code was broken). In a confessional, Garcelle confessed, “He was hot. He was a Bachelor, I was single, you know, it happens in Hollywood.”

This isn’t the first time Garcelle and Will made headlines, though! Garcelle caused quite a stir by sharing a steamy photo of them kissing — a scene from their 1999 movie Wild Wild West — to wish him a happy birthday on Twitter in Sept. 2018. Not everyone thought it was appropriate, given that Will is now married to Jada Pinkett Smith! After facing heavy criticism, Garcelle tweeted, “Ok guys it was supposed to be a funny post My bad if I offended anyone ! If you are my followers you know I’m all about lifting up people and being positive [prayer hands] being human I made a mistake … Have beautiful blessed day.” 

Rich The Kid – ORANGE SODA REMIX Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse: Rich The Kid]
Orange Soda, Bentley got the money odor
I might stroke her she want Henny mixed with Coca-Cola
On the couch, I can’t hit it on my mattress
Thought she was a singer or an actress
Lil’ bitch shut the fuck up, I got hundreds by the bundle
Money tucked the fuck up, and I said I’m rich forever
Like I bought a Brinks truck
Face down ass up imma throw that cash up
I might die for my bitch, and we ain’t broke
I got baguettes on my wrist
She wanna bag every time she throw a fit
She know I will but she ain’t Jada Pinkett Smith

[Chorus]
Bitch sit on my face, I attack that (Yeah)
Choose up, lil’ junt, I’m finna pack him
When it comes to my bitch, I’m straight active
Dirtball in the coupe smokin’ cat piss
Lil’ bitch, shut the fuck up
Tell your best friend, shut the fuck up, ayy
Lil’ bitch, shut the fuck up
Tell your best friend, shut the fuck up, ayy (Ayy, pull up, ayy)

[Verse 1: Baby Keem]
You know I love it when you talk dirty
Messy, you my orange soda shorty
You act like a lil’ me, I wanna fuck you
You the type to kill me, I won’t touch you
You want me drop a band on some cute shoes?
You want me be the man you can vent to?
You let me beat it up, you let me practice
Now I’m finna lay you on the mattress

[Chorus]
Bitch sit on my face, I attack that (Yeah)
Choose up, lil’ junt, I’m finna pack him
When it comes to my bitch, I’m straight active
Dirtball in the coupe smokin’ cat piss
Lil’ bitch, shut the fuck up
Tell your best friend, shut the fuck up, ayy
Lil’ bitch, shut the fuck up
Tell your best friend, shut the fuck up, ayy (Ayy, pull up, ayy)

[Verse 2: Baby Keem]
My lil’ baby low-key a flexer
Six figs on the whip, that’s a price tag
Lil’ best friend bitch tried to press me
I’m that underground nigga with the check, though
I hate a bitch that I can’t impress
When you come see the crib, you better die, ho
Young nigga sneakin’ in through your side door
Baby Keem, not a wave, I’m a vibe, ho
Seven fig nig with the big drip on me (Yeah)
Post on your block with your wish list on me

[Chorus]
Bitch sit on my face, I attack that (Yeah)
Choose up, lil’ junt, I’m finna pack him
When it comes to my bitch, I’m straight active
Dirtball in the coupe smokin’ cat piss
Lil’ bitch, shut the fuck up
Tell your best friend, shut the fuck up, ayy
Lil’ bitch, shut the fuck up
Tell your best friend, shut the fuck up, ayy (Ayy, pull up, ayy)
