“Red Table Talk” garnered an Emmy nomination for best talk show, but Jada Pinkett Smith doesn’t see it through that lens.

“I think it’s more of a storytelling show. … It’s just exchanging of stories and life lessons learned from those stories,” said Pinkett Smith in a recent interview with The Associated Press. “I think that might be a component that’s a bit different than sitting on … the other side of the table just asking questions. It’s like we’re immersed in it as a two-way communication experience.”

Pinkett Smith, along with daughter Willow and mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, have been making headlines regularly with those conversations on their Facebook Watch show, which features both celebrity guests and regular people talking about hot-button topics. On Monday, rapper T.I. is scheduled to sit down and discuss his highly criticized comments about taking his daughter to the gynecologist to make sure she is still a virgin.
