The Girls Trip star was accused by the co-host of using juicy details about her nearly 20-year marriage to Smith, 55, to promote her upcoming book Worthy. The latter suggested on The View:

“I think she’s having a relationship with her bank account. Every time she needs to increase the ratings of ‘Red Table Talk,’ every time she needs to sell books, she drops these bombshells. I find it unseemly.”

Navarro, 51, added:

 “I will tell you this: be careful of anybody who pretends to have a perfect marriage.”

Not everybody agreed with Navarro. Pinkett Smith’s timing was described as “smart” by Joy Behar during the talk show’s segment, while Sunny Hostin defended the Matrix star and praised her bravery. Hostin shared:

“It’s a memoir, though, and she writes in her memoir that they’ve been separated for all of that time.I think it’s a brave thing to do. I think it’s a courageous thing to do. I think it has less to do with money. She has plenty.”

She initially did not think it was real, like many other people who were watching the incident unfold on live television. Pinkett Smith, 52, shared:
