I Had A Nervous Breakdown – Jada Pinkett-Smith, Willow Smith And Adrienne Banfield-Norris Cover Latest Edition Of Harper’s Bazaar

It is no longer news that the Red Table talk hosted by Hollywood star Jada Pinkett-Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris‘ is one hit show and this was achieved by the women being as honest as possible. The trio recently covered the latest edition  Harper’s Bazaar, where they shared many things about their show and their lives. Jada revealed the show was borne from conversations she had with Pauletta WashingtonDenzel Washington‘s wife.”I had a nervous breakdown.I mean, not a nervous breakdown … what do you call it? A freaking mid-life crisis. I turned 40—when you look at your life and everything that was true is now not, and everything that was seemingly untrue now is true.  ”It’s more like an extension of our conversations when we’re alone and just how we are with each other naturally. Willow, 18, shared how she’s come to see vulnerability as power. She said: ”Obviously we’re in a patriarchal society that looks down on vulnerability and looks down on emotion and looks down on femininity. The biggest rebellion is coming into your vulnerability and seeing that as a power. Once you get in touch with your emotions, you start to understand things in a whole other way. When you express what you feel needs to change, or what you feel is unfair or wrong, that’s so important, but the real agent of change is when you embody the truth.”  Adrienne, Jada’s mom, who had a heroin addiction for a long time, said; ‘People come up and just thank me. [They] say, “I’m trying. I’m working on it,” that kind of stuff. I just try to encourage them.I felt like the impact that I could have to change the stigma of addiction and the help that I could offer was more important. Photo Credit: Harper Bazaar
