Thanks to show-stopping performances from the likes of Cardi B, Lizzo, Mary J. Blige, H.E.R., and more, this year’s edition may be scribbled in history books as the ceremony’s lowest rated telecast ever but it still managed to continue the trend of seeing the network ahead of the Sunday night cable competition.

Three striking beauties cover the latest issue of PEOPLE magazine: Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow, and mother Adrienne Banfield.

Together, the trio anchor Facebook’s wildly popular series Red Table Talk – which has risen to potent prominence by way of its fearless format of diving into oft-uncomfortable yet freeing conversations with notable women.

Beyond headline-grabbing sit-downs with the likes of Jordyn Woods and Ciara, the ladies have opened up about their own personal lives too. Generating just as much buzz too.

On the show, Pinkett told the publication of how ‘Red Table’ has personally impacted her marriage to Will Smith:

“The journey between Will and me… we have come to such a beautiful place. I feel like we have a stronger bond than we even had in the beginning [because of the process of the show].”

Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature carved out to celebrate the monumental moves made by some of entertainment’s bravest minds.

Today, we honour the athlete Jim Brown and his stellar performance in the movie ‘100 Rifles’ in which he starred in alongside Raquel Welch.

In it, Brown plays a lawman who is chasing a bank robber who stole $6,000 but, as Brown’s character soon find outs, is far more complex than the world would have him believe.

The behind the scenes drama was just as intense.

It started because  Jim and Raquel were  attracted to each other. After a while they both displayed a little temperament, but don’t forget we were out in the middle of the bloody desert with the temperature at 110. Of course, I don’t think they’ll ever work together again.
