With Jordyn Woods’ Red Table Talk interview slated to air on Friday, March 1, fans can’t help but wonder how the model, 21, came to be so close with the show’s host, Jada Pinkett Smith, and her husband, Will Smith. After all, up until Jordy’s cheating scandal with Khloé Kardashian’s baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, people hardly associated her with anyone other than the Kar-Jenner clan.
As it happens, though, Jordyn’s relationship with BFF Kylie Jenner actually stemmed from growing up around the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum, 50, and his kiddos, Jaden and Willow Smith. Jordyn’s mother, Elizabeth Woods, and her father, John Woods, who has since passed, both worked in the entertainment industry and befriended Will.
As a result, the actor became somewhat of a pseudo-uncle to Jordyn. However, they are not actually blood relatives. “Happy Birthday to a man who has greatly impacted my life. Love you, Uncle Willy,” the brunette beauty captioned a snapshot on Instagram of the pair from 2001.
Despite the phrase “blood is thicker than water,” the Smith family is clearly supporting Jordyn amid this tough time. As it stands, Jada, 47, is seemingly the only person who has heard Jordy’s side of the story. Given the Gotham star’s reputation for being a hard-hitting interviewer, we sincerely hope that she asked Jordyn the difficult questions. Like, oh, we don’t know, “Why the heck did you do that?!” for example.
We are curious to see if the Smith family aligning with Jordyn will create friction with the Kar-Jenners or if it will ultimately help bring the peace. Considering Kendall Jenner is good friends with Jaden, 20, and Willow, 18, there’s quite a few relationships at stake here. Thanks for that, Tristan! You’re a real gem.
Be sure to check back for more coverage on Jordyn’s Red Table Talk episode airing on Friday, March 1, on Facebook Live. While the show has yet to confirm the time, it will likely be at 12 p.m. ET. Bring on the tea!
