But to her credit, she said, she realized she had a problem - especially when it came to drinking - and curbed it before things went too far.

This isn't the first time Smith has been open about her sex life. And I was like, "Now hold up". You're in the house by yourself going onto your third bottle of wine?

Jada also said that it was "easy" for her to cut herself off from her vices - that, even though she was a "binger", she was also able to get the worst of her addictions under control pretty easily. "You might have a problem"'.

'That's the thing about me: I can go cold turkey.

Though the conversation was extremely touching and, at times, difficult, Banfield-Norris said she hopes it will help others who are dependent on harmful substances or activities to seek help.

The host had previously referred to sex "addiction" on an earlier "Table" show in which she recalled her masturbation habits. "That's what you've got to look at".

She continues, "Alcoholism and drug addiction runs through my family, and I've had my own addictions that I've had to get over".

Jada Pinkett Smith is putting everything on the "Table". It's not what you're doing, but why you're doing it... if you want to have a lot of sex, that's great, but why are you having all that sex? "I knew my job was in jeopardy", Adrienne said. "She didn't want me to fall into the hands of a man, and if he gave me pleasure, to think that that was him".

Although we've all been taught to never judge a book by its cover, I fell into that trap with Banfield-Jones.

"I think by your age, I gave myself multiples first", Jada later told one of her guests, daughter Willow's close friend, 21-year-old Telana Lynum. He explained that there is a point where one realizes that you're with that person for life. But why are you having all that sex? And then one day, I was just like, 'Enough. You just realise, oh, that's not being exhausted, that is like, a drug problem.
