Gloria Estefan, her daughter, and niece have agreed on a safe word to stop them revealing too much on their new Facebook Watch series.
The three women will front the new family talk show – a spin-off from Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk hit – and Gloria reveals they had to come up with a word or phrase they could use to end a conversation if it gets too close for comfort.
The pop superstar says, “There’s a secret word – ‘pineapple’ – and we’re supposed to shut up, because when we start talking, we start talking. We wanna leave it natural and fresh… so we’ve chosen the themes… and I don’t think we’ve said, ‘No, we’re not gonna go there!’ We just talk for two hours and then the editors are the poor things that have to synthesize this down to a length that people can watch.
“We’re gonna be free and talk about everything… We’re gonna be raw, just like Jada.”
The first eight episodes of Red Table Talk: The Estefans, which will feature Gloria’s daughter Emily and her niece Lili, will debut later this year.
