Jada Pinkett Smith’s show, Red Table Talk took over the internet this week as she and her husband, Will Smith shared intimate conversations about their life.

Jada and Will discuss the origins of their relationship and the evolution over time. Will Smith shared an interesting moment of fate as he says the day he was supposed to meet Jada did not go to planned, and met Sheree instead. “The dude who was gonna introduce me to Jada was with another girl and I was like, ‘Who is that?” he said. “I went to Different World to meet Jada and met Sheree. And ended up marrying Sheree and having Trey with Sheree. I didn’t meet Jada that day.”

Jada also came in with a revelation. She claimed that her and Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), went on a date at one point before she met Will.

In a tweet with the clip attached for the latest episode of the show, Jada wrote, “I believe [Alfonso Ribeiro] and I went on one date. Before I was even on A Different World.” Ribeiro did not hesitate to respond by saying, “Sorry Jada. Your memory is a little off. We went to lunch with your family when we both guest starred on A Different World the year before you became a regular.” Jada then jokingly tweeted back, “my fault Alf… I thought it was a date.”

Life is very interesting for the Smiths.
