[Blind Gossip] Actor and part-time psychologist Jada Pinkett Smith dishes out “words of wisdom” via an “open letter” to “A Friend” about blended families.
The letter – which appears on her Facebook page – is really a public smack down!.
A letter to a friend:
Blended families are NEVER easy, but here’s why I don’t have a lot of sympathy for your situation because… we CHOOSE them. When I married Will, I knew Trey was part of the package…Period! If I didn’t want that…I needed to marry someone else. Then I learned if I am going to love Trey…I had to learn to love the most important person in the world to him…his mother. And the two of us may not have always LIKED each other… but we have learned to LOVE each other.
I can’t support any actions that keep a man from his children of a previous marriage. These are the situations that separate the women from the girls. Your behavior is that of an insecure child who needs to recognize her own weaknesses that MUST be strengthened to take on the task at hand. We can’t say we love our man and then come in between him and his children. THAT’S selfishness…NOT love. WOMAN UP… I’ve been there…I know. My blended family made me a giant… Taught me so much about love, commitment and it has been the biggest ego death to date. It’s time you let your blended family make you the giant you truly are.
Here’s the interesting part: We hear that The Friend is actually another well-known female celebrity!
This trend of celebrities publicly airing the dirty laundry of other celebrities (cough… Shia LaBoeuf… cough… LeAnn Rimes) has been an interesting side effect of social media.
It’s also fascinating to us that Jada feels that it’s appropriate to berate the celebrity and lecture her publicly.
Frankly, Jada is the last person who should be giving the smack down to other celebrities about how they conduct themselves and run their families.
Because Jada sure wouldn’t like it if her personal life was suddenly exposed in an “open” letter.
After all, could you imagine if Jada’s penchant for “open” things was detailed in an “open” letter by The Friend?
That would be awesome!
