Jada Pinkett Smith Addresses Aunt Viv DIS!

The 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Los Angeles

Jada Pinkett Smith is back in action!

After actively announcing her boycott of the Oscars due to lack of diversity, former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Janet Hubert had a snide retort, calling Smith’s actions “suspect.”

“I find it ironic that somebody who has made their living, and made millions and millions of dollars from the very people you’re talking about boycotting just because you didn’t get a nomination, just because you didn’t win,” Hubert, who played Aunt Vivian on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, said. “That is not the way life works, baby.”

Now, Smith is calmly addressing her comments:

“Considering that Alabama had its highest recruitment for the KKK for Martin Luther King’s birthday, I hope that we as African-Americans can find a way to get along and step together,” Smith says. According to the New York Daily News, a Ku Klux Klan chapter distributed recruitment flyers to residents in Mobile, Alabama, over the MLK holiday weekend.

“This whole Oscar controversy isn’t really about the Oscars,” she adds. “Really, in my plea to ask all communities and people of color to take back our power is so that we can use it in all sectors of our community, and right now, specifically with African-American people, we have some very serious issues that I think we as a people have to move together on. I’m hoping we can find ways to step together in this instead of finding ways to fight each other. I got love for everybody.”

Woah. Who do YOU side with? Pinkett Smith or Hubert? Both have legit arguments, in my humble opinion, but I think every little bit of action for diversification is important.

Jada Pinkett Smith Is Pissed Will Wasn’t Nominated.

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith to divorce?

And she’s speaking out!

Now, I think we’re all pretty disappointed at how whitewashed the Oscar Noms Noms were this year, but Jada Pinkett Smith is particularly irate, basically publicly coming out to boycott the Oscars for her husband Will Smith‘s lack of recognition.

Will was overlooked by the Academy for his performance in “Concussion,” and Jada said via her Facebook:

“Maybe it’s time we pull back our resources and we put them back into our communities, and we make programs for ourselves that acknowledge us in ways that we see fit, that are just as good as the so-called mainstream.”

Jada suggested, “We can no longer beg for the love, acknowledgement or respect of any group.”

Don’t expect to see her at the Oscars, y’all.

Check out her video HERE! Do you think she’s having an appropriate reaction for Will’s Oscar snub? WEIGH IN BELOW!

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith to divorce?

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith to divorce?

There are rumors floating around once again that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are gearing up for a messy divorce.

After 17 long years of marriage and many rumors surrounding their union, there are reports that the couple have decided to pull the plug on their marriage. Can you believe it?

An insider said, “For Will and Jada, holding it together these past few years has been tough because their marriage has been on life support for a long time. They’re exhausted from trying to maintain the facade of a happy union. They’ve decided to pull the plug in a carefully choreographed manner, [and] agree announcing their split at the end of the summer is the right move.”

The duo reportedly has already worked out a “confidential settlement to protect their $240 million fortune, and prepare their kids for the fallout.”

There has been cheating rumors on both sides, but if this is true, my guess is that it’s because Will is the main offender. She has long said that he’s grown and can basically do whatever he wants.

Another spy said, “They tried to fix things with therapy, but it’s not happening.”

Lastly, another source said, “They’re already moving on with their lives. All that’s left is the inking of the divorce papers.”

Jada Pinkett Smith And Will Smith Probably Have An Open Marriage

FOCUS Premieres in Hollywood

I guess after almost 20 years, Jada Pinkett Smith doesn’t sweat, like ANYTHING.

The Gotham starr sat down with Howard Stern on Wednesday to discuss her marriage to Will Smith, which to be honest makes it seem like they’re in a pretty open relationship, even though she doesn’t say that directly. Us Weekly reports:

On marriage being a journey: “We have traveled and you’ve gotta be strong. It takes work — you know that!” she said to Stern. “Here’s the deal, Howard. You’ve gotta trust who you’re with. And at the end of the day, right, I’m not here to be anybody’s watcher. I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man.”

On the basics of marriage: “Here’s what I trust: The man that Will is… is a man of integrity. He’s got all the freedom in the world,” she dished. “As long as Will can look himself the mirror and be okay? I’m good.”

On Any “affairs:” “I’m gonna know anyway,” she continued, saying not all Hollywood couples were on the same page. “It can sometimes [suck] if you’re not clear about where your man is.”

On Will being attracted to other women:  “When you can look in your man’s eyes and know that he’s holding you down and that he loves you,” she dished. “Here’s what’s real: I’m not the kind of woman that believes a man is not going to be attracted to another woman.”

What do YOU think? Is this about men in more general terms or do you think that this marriage is open and she’s cool with it?!
