Friday morning, 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) entertainment reporter Julie Chang recounted the interview.

Chang said the couple had mutually agreed to the divorce. "We realized very, very early on that even though we're not together, this story's not over," Anthony told 'Nightline.' "There's stuff to do together. There's life to see together through Max and Emmy. You know what I mean? So it's all good, man."

Anthony is also the show's new "executive music person," says Smith, who also revealed that she envied Vartan, because he go to use the "A" word on a recent episode.

Jada Pinkett Smith, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Jada Pinkett Smith has in recent years added writer, producer and director to her resume alongside acting. Being married to Will Smith has allowed the pair opportunities to hone stories together, which is a lot of fun for them. As she detailed on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), they clash sometimes.

"I think he's probably one of the best story structuralists there is," she said of her husband. "I'm very character-oriented, so sometimes we clash with story and character."

More specifically, while he will sometimes feel inclined to force a character into a great story, she has to believe it within that character's personality to engage in those story elements.

Jada Pinkett Smith: 'Karate Kid' Son Jaden Still Has Chores (VIDEO)

Jada Pinkett Smith Talks Jaden's Chores on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Jaden Smith's 'Karate Kid' reboot raked in $56 million in its opening weekend, but so what? Parents Will and Jada Pinkett Smith still get him to make his bed and do his chores.

"Most child actors, they are the breadwinners of their home," explained Pinkett Smith on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC). "Well, Jaden will have to do quite a few more movies before he becomes the breadwinner of the Smith family home."

"But this karate can be a dangerous thing, you know. I mean if he keeps up with that..." said the host. Pinkett Smith replied, "That's true, but you have to remember his father played Ali and his mother was in two 'Matrix' films." Good point.

This particular family dynamic all sounds pretty appealing to Jimmy Kimmel. Will they adopt him? "Jimmy Pinkett Smith" has a nice ring to it.

Jada Pinkett Smith: Playing at Ozzfest Was 'Rough' (VIDEO)

Jada Pinkett Smith Talks Metal Band, OzzfestWill and Jada Pinkett Smith's daughter Willow "loves music" and will "have an album coming out," Jada said on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS). But will she follow in her dad's musical footsteps, or her mom's?

George Lopez revealed a photo of Jada rockin out during Ozzfest. In 2005, her "melodic metal" band Wicked Wisdom was a second-stage act on the tour, with mixed results.

"At first it was a little rough," she shared. "I was getting death threats and all kinds of things. But we went out there and after the first week, we got our feet on the ground. We finished in Florida, and we made ... somewhat of an impression."

That's not a huge endorsement. Something tells us little Willow may steer clear of that genre.

Jada Pinkett Smith Talks 'Invasion' by Michael VartanJada Pinkett Smith appeared on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) to talk about the second season of 'Hawthorne' (premiering tonight), and how her body just knows she "belongs" to hubby Will Smith.

Referring to her character on the series, Pinkett Smith said, "She falls in love with [the character played by] Michael Vartan, which is gonna be very challenging considering she's still a widow--"

"And in real life you're married to Will Smith," added Jimmy Fallon. "That must be awkward, right?"

When she had to kiss Vartan, she realized what a difference a 15-year marriage makes. "I stopped doing love scenes once I got married, so I haven't been touched by another man in a very long time," she said. "When another man is touching you, your body is like [she makes warning-alert sounds] ... The red signals go off. Invasion! Invasion!"

Jada Pinkett Smith "Embarrasses" Hubby Will on 'Oprah Winfrey' (VIDEO)

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith were on Monday's edition of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated), and the conversation turned to marriage.

"I want to know what you do to keep this flame burning," Winfrey asked. Will played the shy, embarrassed husband while Jada jumped right in with "How saucy do you want to get, Oprah?" "Hey, we got kids in the green room," Will wisecracked.

Really, though, what does Jada do? "I always surprise him," she said. How? She might send him a sexy picture of some sort. And if they're on the set of 'Hawthorne,' "we might take a little break" she said.

Hot Video: 'Hawthorne' Interview With Jada Pinkett Smith

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jul 28th 2009 6:00AM
Jada Pinkett Smith, 'Hawthorne'My set visit to TNT's 'Hawthorne' was not your typical tour of a soundstage -- the show actually shoots at an old abandoned hospital in South Los Angeles. And, yes, before you ask, it was more than a little creepy.

But when you visit the set of a medical drama, what better place to conduct interviews than an old emergency room? That's exactly where I sat down with the show's star Jada Pinkett Smith at the fictitious Richmond Trinity Hospital. Her stories about hubby Will Smith and son Jaden filming his new movie, 'Kung Fu Kid,' with Jackie Chan -- made me forget all about our (quite possibly haunted) surroundings.

Watch to see what else Jada dished about her "off the hook" character, Christina Hawthorne, and what to expect from the rest of the first season. -- By Maggie Furlong

Hawthorne: Pilot (series premiere)

by Michael Pascua, posted Jun 17th 2009 12:20AM
Jada Pinkett Smith as Christina Hawthorne(S01E01) I often get complaints from my registered nurse parents about the inaccuracy of hospital drama shows. Don't even get me started on how much my mother hates Grey's Anatomy. I came to Hawthorne with hesitation: can the show balance the drama with the medical cases? I was surprised how well the show balanced meetings, patients, and outlying drama.

Anyone else think that Jada Pinkett Smith deserves a better career than she's gotten? Her IMDB page screams regrettable movies that didn't showcase her acting skills. I loved watching her in Hawthorne and truly think she can handle Oscar-caliber roles.

TNT putting together a network-killing summer schedule

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 30th 2009 9:30AM

When the networks go into summer hibernation, it's time for the cable networks to come out and play. While they've been making inroads with fall and spring original programming, most cable networks stick to the summer frame where competition is light and they put up huge numbers that NBC would envy. TNT added a few shows to achieve a three-night schedule of original programming this summer, bringing it closer and closer to full network programming levels. And TNT knows a thing or two about massive ratings hits.

They're coupling smash hit The Closer at 9 PM ET with Raising the Bar at 10 on Mondays starting June 8. Bar launched huge and secured a renewal before everyone realized what a huge steaming pile of crap it was. So now it's got the cushiest timeslot on the network to try and win back all the viewers it pissed away. Let's hope they've improved the product and Felicityed Mark Paul-Gosselaar's hair.

TNT adds two series to its lineup

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 8th 2009 2:07PM
TNTTNT is furthering its investment in original drama by adding two new shows to its programming, increasing the number of original hour-long dramas they offer to seven. The first new show is The Line, a cop drama produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and starring Dylan McDermott. The second is a medical drama called Time Heals starring Jada Pinkett Smith.

This seems to me an example of a trickle-down effect. Due to the Internet and video-on-demand, reruns simply don't work anymore in keeping a network in business. Original drama worked so well for premium networks such as HBO and Showtime that standard cable stations such as AMC, TNT and several others took it upon themselves to do the same.

I guess Leverage is such a winner for the network that it can afford to add to its line-up. At this rate, there is going to be too much original television offered weekly for a human being to possibly keep up (if there isn't already), which is why video-on-demand was invented in the first place.

Ten new shows you won't see this fall

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 16th 2007 1:20PM

?Out of the dozens and dozens of shows that go to pilot every season, we only see a handful. Some of them vanish forever and some might end up online in one way or another.

Below is a list of ten shows that didn't make the fall schedule on the networks this year. Some of them might show up midseason, but most won't. And just for a little added fun, I've included three shows that are completely made up. Can you tell which ones they are? I'll answer in the comments later tonight (and don't go looking online for the answer; that's no fun). The shows are listed after the jump. Some of them sound crazy, but hey, if you told me two years ago that those Geico cavemen commercials would be a series...
