1. Jordyn Woods Dishes About Her Cheating Scandal
Woods broke her silence on Red Table Talk following cheating allegations between her and Tristan Thompson. The television personality was accused of hooking up with the NBA player while he was still with Khloe Kardashian. She denied the gossip and claimed that things were blown out of proportion.
“I should have gone home after the party. I shouldn’t even have been there,” the social media influencer revealed. “Never once was I giving him a lap dance, making out with him, sitting all over him. Never once did we leave the public area, go to a bedroom, go to a bathroom. We’re all in plain sight.”
The interview ignited a Twitter firestorm with the Good American designer claiming that her former friend was lying. “Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wrote. “BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!”
2. Jada Discusses Her Unhealthy Relationship with Porn
There is no denying that Jada is an open book on Red Table Talk. The Magic Mike star revealed that she once had a porn addiction.
“We’re here to talk about the effects of pornography on relationships,” Jada explained as she sat at the table alongside her daughter, Willow, and her mother, Adrienne. “This is an interesting one, and I actually feel like I was using ‘addiction’ a little lightly. And maybe I’ll say now that I had an unhealthy relationship to porn at one point in my life where I was trying to practice abstinence.”
The “Whip My Hair” singer also shared that she started watching pornography when after she discovered it on Tumblr at age 11.
This wasn’t the first frank conversation on Red Table Talk. The married star has also opened up about sex addiction and masturbation in past episodes.
3. Ciara Reveals Her Emotional Scars
It may appear that Ciara is living in a fairy tale after she married Russel Wilson in 2016. But, the 33-year-old singer reflected during her interview on Red Table Talk about how her breakup with Future and becoming a single mother affected her outlook on life.
“If I wouldn’t have gone through those things, I may not appreciate the man I have in my life,” the Georgia native explained. “I may not appreciate when it is really going good and everything is falling into place. You need those roller coaster rides. I believe in my journey happening in front of the world for a reason.”
The “Level Up” performer also dished on balancing family and work, setting goals and why she fell in love with her husband.
4. Common Shares How He Is Breaking Destructive Cycles
After the release of his book, Let Love Have The Last Word, Common shared during his interview on Red Table Talk how he is working to break the cycle of failed relationships in his life and how he would like to become a husband.

The Selma actor also reflected how therapy has helped through difficult times, his relationship with his daughter, how he dealt with past trauma and what he is looking for in a partner. Smith also advised him that marriage can be difficult and how it takes effort to make a relationship last.
5. Kristin Davis Opens Up About Interracial Adoption
Kristen Davis‘ conversation on Red Table Talk made headlines when she discussed her experiences with interracial adoption. She adopted two black children and she opened up about the challenges she faced being their mother.
“I will never be black, no matter how hard I try, I will never be black,” Davis said during the interview. “That is the truth and we have to accept it. And therefore I will never be able to say to Gemma, ‘I understand how you feel because this happened to me.’ That’s what’s painful and hard.”
The Sex and the City actress revealed the extensive adoption process that she went through as a single mother, learning more about black culture and finding a diverse village where her children can thrive.
