“Everybody has a place at the table because there’s not just one perspective. That’s what makes the show awesome to me.”
Besides Pinkett-Smith’s welcoming persona, another gem about the show is the actress’ mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, affectionately called “Gammy,” by granddaughter Willow and fans.
