Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly documentary has been on everyone’s mind this past week, with Jada Pinkett Smith inquiring how R. Kelly‘s streaming numbers have increased since the damning series made its debut.
That was clearly just the tip of the iceberg for the actress, as she, daughter, Willow Smith, and mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, will host a very special two-part episode of Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk focusing on the controversial doc tomorrow, January 11 and Monday, January 14. The women will be joined by survivor Lisa Van Allen and Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Chicago School of Medicine, Dr. Candice Norcott, to discuss the public’s reaction, warning signs of abuse we all should know, survivor stories and different paths to healing.
Each episode will be available on the Red Table Talk show page at 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET
Check out a teaser below.
