Jada Pinkett Smith and Leah Remini are apparently ready for their "Second Act".

The actresses, who used to have meat, Finally, make your mind up during an upcoming episode of "Red Table Talk," a talk show that Pinkett Smith presents with her mother and daughter, singer Willow Smith, that delves into personal topics such as sex addiction and marital struggle.

Pinkett Smith, summing up her amendments to People magazine, recalled: "The really emotional thing was to realize that there were two broken girls in us who were abandoned by their parents and became fighters who clashed."

Remini described the anguish of his childhood. On twitter in September of 2017. "My real father left his wife and young daughters without care, without maintenance and was physically and mentally abusive of my sisters," he said.

That same month, Remini identified Pinkett Smith as a Scientologist, a controversial religion with a celebrity who remains at the center of his A & E docu-series "Leah Remini: Scientology and Consequences." Remini was a Scientologist for 35 years before leaving the church in 2013. Since then, it has been opened in interviews and in his book, "Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology."

"I know Jada is inside," Remini told The Daily Beast last year. "She has been in Scientology for a long time."

"I never saw Will (Smith) there … but Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Center all the time," Remini continued.

A few days after the publication of the article, Smith denied being a member of the church. On twitter, writing: "I have studied Dianetics and I appreciate the merits of Study Tech … but I am not a Scientologist".

"I practice human kindness, and I believe that each of us has the right to determine what we are and what we are not." she added. "Nobody else can have that power."

Pinkett Smith says it was Remini who approached her, at a time when she described People as "really beautiful."

"She was a lot … bigger than me that way," Pinkett Smith recalled. "It was nice to reconnect and get rid of all those nonsense that does not matter."

The star of "Girls Trip" said in her speech that she learned: "You should treat people with kindness because you do not know what they are going through".

"When he told me his story, I felt a lot more compassion," Pinkett Smith added, "and he reiterated the need to be nice and kind because we're all devastated."

You can get more "Red Table Talk" when the series returns to Facebook Watch on October 22.
