Adrienne only had praise for Jada, saying, "I'm so happy for you. I wouldn't say I'm a connoisseur, but I'm 47, so, enough said".

As for why Pinkett Smith wanted to be so open about sex with her daughter, she explained, "I did not want Willow to have shame of any kind".

The star opened up about the subject during the sex-themed episode of her show, which she hosts alongside Willow and her mom Adrienne Banfield-Jones, 64. Spade was discovered in her New York City apartment, while Bourdain was filming in France at the time of his death.

"My introduction to sex was obviously walking in on you and Daddy", Willow explained.

"It wasn't like I was seeing everything, the room was still dark. It was silhouetted", Willow recalls, revealing that it was during a vacation to Aspen. "It was like when I walk into you meditating. It's like, when Mommy's meditating, don't get into her business".

And Jada previously admitted to being inspired by her can-do attitude. "And I always feel like the stuff of life is meant to be lived, not analyzed". Pinkett Smith said she too has dealt with suicidal thoughts and has spent years "healing". I knew the night Jaden lost his virginity and I had a moment with Trey in the kitchen.

The United Nations and other aid groups already had pulled their global staff from Hudaida ahead of the expected assault. The Houthis deny they are Iranian pawns and say their revolt is against corruption and defending Yemen from invaders.

"I think that people still have a very hard time talking about sex, especially women", Jada said at the top of the episode. "He was embarrassed. It was like their innocence was gone". "I was like, 'Oh my god, this is so insane, what did I just see?'"

Jada revealed that she learned about pleasuring herself from her grandmother at a very young age. She added, "And she taught me at 9!" "She didn't want me to fall into the hands of a man, and if he gave me pleasure, to think that that was him. And she taught me at nine!"

The 46-year-old actress revealed that she did not let her son Jaden Smith sleep over at friends' houses when he was growing up.

"One thing I've learned in my life over the years is that mental health is something we should practice daily, not just when issues arise", she captioned a black and white set of photos featuring the two late celebrities. But one night I was just like, this is actually psychotic, and after that, I just stopped. What I eat, what I watch on TV, what music I listen to, how I care for my body, my spiritual practice, what people I surround myself with, the amount of stress I allow and so on... either contribute to or deteriorate my mental health'. "You can create so much pleasure, you constantly want it".

"That's some next level, right there", joked Willow.
