Will Smith's ex is ready to take on Alexis Arquette!
The 48-year-old took to Facebook to shut down Alexis' accusations that she left the Men In Black actor because she caught him with another man. In fact, Sheree opened up and noted that she left her marriage because she was simply "unhappy."
Not to mention, Will's first wife quipped that if she HAD caught him with another person (let alone another man) she would not stay silent about it. She added:
"If I walked in on him, as you say it happened, I don't think our relationship could be then what it has been…because a woman scorned, ain't nothing nice."
You tell 'em, girl! Ch-ch-check out the full admission vid for yourself (below)!
He's got her back.
And while the actress has seen support from celebs like Spike Lee and Al Sharpton, as well as some not-so-positive feedback from Whoopi Goldberg and Stacey Dash, it surprisingly took a few days for Will Smith to share his stance on the matter.
Luckily for Jada, her Concussion star husband finally touched upon her activism during an interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America Thursday, saying:
Keeping it classy!
On Monday, Janet Hubert — AKA the original Aunt Viv from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air — threw some SERIOUS shade at Jada Pinkett Smith after she publicly announced she would be boycotting this year's Oscars due to lack of diversity.
Instead of firing back at the actress, the 44-year-old would prefer to put up a united front, saying:
"Considering that Alabama had its highest recruitment for the KKK for Martin Luther King's birthday, I hope that we as African-Americans can find a way to get along and step together."
In fact, the Gotham alum stressed that her headline-making video was about bigger issues than just awards show snubs, adding:
"This whole Oscar controversy isn't really about the Oscars. Really, in my plea to ask all communities and people of color to take back our power is so that we can use it in all sectors of our community, and right now, specifically with African-American people, we have some very serious issues that I think we as a people have to move together on. I'm hoping we can find ways to step together in this instead of finding ways to fight each other. I got love for everybody."
We think that was an incredibly graceful response, considering the sitcom star was taking some pretty personal shots! What do U think of Jada's remarks? Let us know in the comments!
Things are getting shady!
In her sit down, the Fox News contributor said that in order for the black community to break away from segregation, they needed to get rid of channels like BET and award shows "where you are only awarded if you are black."
The 49-year-old's controversial interview, in which she also called Jada Pinkett Smith's Oscars boycott "ludicrous," was met with mixed criticism — though she did find a sort-of supporter in Donald Trump!
But the best response so far was from BET's Instagram account, who posted a still of Dash guest starring in an episode of The Game — which was, you guessed it, on the Black Entertainment Television channel:
The Fox News contributor appeared on Wednesday's Fox & Friends to talk about Hollywood's lack of diversity — which was reflected in this year's Oscar nominations.
During the interview, the Clueless actress called Jada Pinkett Smith's boycott of the award show "ludicrous," and that expecting awards to be selected by race would be a "disservice" to the Academy members.
The newly 49-year-old (happy birthday, gurl!) went on to say she thinks the black community is still segregated by the presence of award shows like the BET Awards and NAACP Image Awards, explaining:
Who needs the Oscars when you can go to a Knicks game?!
On Monday, Spike Lee shared a passionate Instagram post in response to the all-white acting nominees for this year's Academy Awards, in which he explained that he wouldn't be attending the ceremony due to its lack of diversity.
Speaking on Good Morning America on Wednesday, the Do The Right Thing director said he planned on attending the New York Knicks game in instead of the Oscars on February 28, saying:
