Jada Pinkett Smith’s mom gets facts right on ‘HawthoRNe’
By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
HollywoodNews.com: If real-life nurses and doctors find more to like on “HawthoRNe” this season in terms of verisimilitude, they’ll have Jada Pinkett Smith’s mother to thank.
“She enjoyed the first season, but she wrote me a long email about the technical things we weren’t doing properly,” reports Jada, whose mom, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, worked as a head nurse at a women’s clinic in inner-city Baltimore. “I brought a new technical team in. That literally was a result of mom’s letter. I got a lot of constructive criticism from her and other nurses.”
Adds Jada, “She had really good suggestions, more of the perspective of the employees in the hospital, that are helping us expand and extend it on beyond the nursing staff,” for the TNT show.
Jada’s character gets a romance this year, as we noted the other day, with Michael Vartan’s Dr. Wakefield. “That’s very, very interesting on a lot of levels,” she says.
