One of the most anticipated interviews of 2019 was Jordyn Woods appearing on Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Red Table Talk.

Model Jordyn Woods caught the world by surprise when she was caught up in a rumored cheating scandal with khloe Kardashian’s then boyfriend, Tristan Thompson.

Jada opens up about being reluctant to having Jordyn on the show because it was “very close” to home for her. Despite how she felt, Jordyn and Will Smith was able to convince her otherwise. “Jordyn really felt like it was the only safe place that she could do that interview,” Jada said. “It actually wasn’t something I wanted to do because it was very close [to home], but as time transpired, Jordyn was just like, ‘I really need you in this platform’ and Will [Smith] felt like it was supremely important. So I was like, okay let’s do it.”

Luckily for Jordyn, Jada had her on the show to tell her side of the story. The interview became the most-viewed Facebook episode within the first 24 hours.

“I just wanted her to have a platform to tell her story,” Jada Said. “That’s it. She’s a young beautiful woman inside and out and me having been a young girl, we sometimes get in situations that we don’t necessarily know how to handle… You just [try to] help young girls navigate through life, through difficult situations we’ve all come across.”

Here’s how the episode went down.
