The other day at work we were discussing Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she plans to run for president and whether or not we would vote for her. Immediately, one of my coworkers, a Black woman, as most of us are here are Moguldom, said she wasn’t too sure. Stating that she didn’t know whether or not Hillary was really for us and she didn’t like the way she tried to dog President Obama during the 2008 race.
In my mind, I always thought that after President Obama finished his two terms, I would be ready for Hillary. I would be excited about the first female President. But what I feel these days isn’t quite excitement. It’s more about thinking Hillary (and let’s be real, Bill too), are the lesser of two…or 8 evils.
So during the discussion, I played devil’s advocate because I’m certainly not here for another Bush in office either. Two was far too many.
Still, that doesn’t mean that I am sure Hillary was going to fight for Black people generally or Black women specifically.
And apparently, Jada Prinkett Smith has the same concerns.
This past weekend, she wrote a lengthy Facebook message pondering the question. See what she had to say.
Does Jada have a valid point? Do you have the same concerns? Are you planning to vote for Hillary Clinton, why or why not?
For “Gotham” fans who love the memorable character “Fish” Mooney, sad news to report: she will no longer appear on the series after this season. Actress Jada Pinkett Smith revealed to “Extra’s” AJ Calloway that she won’t be on the Fox show after the season finale.
On her decision, Smith said, “We’re done, I did my year and I had a good time. The show is gonna have an awesome finale.” She went on to say that she was grateful to participate on the show because of her love for Batman.
“I’ve always been a comic book fan so it was definitely a dream to be able to participate in an origin story of Batman with an original character. Who would of thought in a million years that I would have the opportunity to do that?”
Although the actress didn’t give too many details on what fans should expect in her last episodes on “Gotham,” she reminded everyone that her next project will be Magic Mike XXL, which is set to be released on July 1.
If you’re interested in tuning in to see Smith play “Fish” on “Gotham” before it’s too late, the show airs Mondays on Fox.
Just last week we were talking about Will Smith’s philosophy for establishing lasting love, which was that couples have to be willing to allow their relationship to die sometimes in order for it to be rebirthed. He even confessed that his relationship with Jada has died multiple times. Now, folks are talking about the couple’s openness.
The husband-and-wife duo was recently spotted exchanging plenty of PDA at the premiere of Will’s new movie, Focus. When questioned by “Extra” about how they feel about each other’s steamy love scenes, they gave rather interesting responses. Apparently, Jada enjoys seeing Will get busy with other women on camera.
“After 20 years… I actually, you know…” Jada began.
“She a little freaky like that,” Will jumped in.
“Unfortunately, he’s right,” she continued. “It’s kind of a nice voyeuristic way to see your man, but I am kind of weird in that way. That’s a whole other conversation.”
Will also joked about seeing his wife interact with other men in her upcoming movie, Magic Mike 2.
“The difference was everybody’s naked in Jada’s movie. It’s just overkill. It’s like somebody needs to put some drawers on,” he said. “There’s so many famous people in ‘Magic Mike 2,’ everywhere I go there’s some man there who’s been in his drawers with my wife.”
The pair also discussed Will’s comments from last week about building lasting relationships.
“I think you just have to be willing to keep things fresh… we love growing together and we love doing a lot of things together,” said Jada.
“Growing together is a big, important part, like, to never get static, there’s always something new,” Will added.

When one thinks of couples who have stood the test of time, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith quickly come to mind. However, Will admits that he and Jada have experienced their share of marital struggles just like everyone else. The Focus actor also confessed that his relationship has “died” several times in the course of their marriage.
”Whatever you have is gonna die and you are gonna have to rebirth something new. You have to be willing to ride the waves,” he recently told The Sun.
The 46-year-old went on to say that marriage has plenty of plenty of ups and downs, but in order to succeed, you have to be willing to take that ride.
“There’s gonna be some flat days and some stormy days, and that has to be OK,” he continued.
His comments seemed to fall in perfect alignment with a statement made by his wife last summer about doing away with certain “rules” in their relationship.
“We used to have all these rules, [but] as you go on in your relationship, you just get into a flow,” the mother of two explained to Net-a-Porter. “Will, to me, encompasses everything. It’s almost as if calling him ‘my husband’ is too small of a word for what he means in my life—and especially how I feel we, as women, identify the idea of a husband.”
Good for them!

“Often we feel in order to be strong we have to take on male attributes. I grew up on the streets of Baltimore and had to put out an energy that said, ‘You do not want to mess with me.’ But I’m okay. I feel safe now…I can focus on love, compassion, openness, and yes, vulnerability.”
