Although Braxton is currently engaged to fiance Birdman, she was married for 12 years to ex-husband Keri Lewis. The couple divorced in 2013.
“For me personally, I’m not mature enough to have a divorce,” Pinkett Smith said in the clip released Friday. “I’m just not. I don’t think I would ever be mature enough, I don’t.”

Will and Jada, who started dating in the mid-’90s, tied the knot in 1997 and have two children together –Jaden Smith, 20, and Willow Smith, 17–plus Will’s son, Tre, from a previous marriage. Pinkett Smith admits that the idea of separating assets would end up being too much for her.
“Let me tell you, that’s when the red table turns upside down…and it won’t be red no more. This junk would be smashed in shambles…”
Pinkett Smith’s mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, also appears in the clip. She co-hosts the Facebook Watch show alongside Pinkett Smith and her daughter.
The new episode will air on Monday.
