    The conversation around the 2022 Oscars continues...

    Believe it or not, it's been almost five months since that infamous Oscars moment between Will Smith and Chris Rock, when Will slapped the comedian for making fun of Jada Pinkett-Smith. Yet, there's still plenty of conversation around it.

    Despite the split, Sheree has remained close with Will and the rest of the Smith family, even appearing on Jada's show Red Table Talk.

    Recently, she opened up about how "gracious" of a person he is and shared her hope that people will grant him "forgiveness" for what happened at the Oscars.

    Going on, she highlighted Will's "gracious" personality and how he's "given us years of laughter" through his work. "I hope with him — he's been in the business since 16 with Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. He gives so generously, he puts love into everything he does, he's so gracious, so kind, he has heart connection to his fans."

    Will, for his part, has issued several apologies for what happened in the months since then. In a more recent video, he said that he also reached out to Chris personally but was told that Chris was "not ready" to talk.
