"It just couldn't be anything else", Pinkett Smith said of how she somewhat reluctantly agreed to do an episode with Union.

"I was like, 'When did that happen?!' Because I had no idea,"the surprised mother said. Thank God I have some therapy fund put aside for you.' It wasn't amusing in the moment", Jada continued".

According to the 46-year-old, the resolution came about when the producers of her new show, Red Table Talk, insisted that she bring Union on the program.

Known for such films as "10 Things I Hate About You", actress Gabrielle Union visits TODAY to talk about "Breaking In", the upcoming movie thriller in which she plays a mom fighting home invaders.

"I'm looking forward to people having permission to do the same in their own lives and create their own red table for themselves, for their families, with their relationships", Pinkett Smith added. "And you said, 'It's my house now'". "She doesn't care. It's kinda like my mother's on one extreme, Willow's on another extreme, and I'm in the middle where I'm a little of both".

"I want you to know that Will Smith let me have it", Jada admits.

"The week [Will] told me he was introducing you to Trey", Sheree said. "He's gonna be like, 'What?!' He's gonna call me and be like, What the hell is going on over there?!"

"I know this baby daddy is a lot!"

"I'll tell you, on this side of things, my son could not have a better bonus mom", Sheree said. "And I loved cooking with her and sleeping over".

"I never wanted him to feel like he was separate", Jada said.

"That's how it should be, though", her mother nodded.

Pinkett Smith exposed the secret rift while promoting her new Facebook Watch talk show, which apparently was responsible for her reunion with Union, who grew up in Pleasanton.
