Jada Pinkett Smith Fired 'Hawthorne' Crew After Mom's Advice


Actress Jada Pinkett Smith fired the original technical crew behind her new TV hospital drama "Hawthorne" after her mother, a top nurse, criticized the show for its inaccuracy. Pinkett Smith plays Chief Nursing Officer Christina Hawthorne in the U.S. series, but her mum Adrienne Banfield-Jones, the head nurse of an inner-city clinic in Baltimore, Maryland, was quick to point out the show wasn't realistic.


The actress took the comments so seriously she hired a whole new technical team for the show's second season, which premiered in America in June. Pinkett Smith says, "She (her mum) did quite a bit (of criticizing) last year (2009), which is why I got a new technical team this year... Last year she was really on top of it and I'm very thankful because there were a lot of things she was making me aware of that I don't think I would've been if she hadn't been (there)."
