Beloved actress #EliseNeal has recently come forward to speak on the climate of #WillSmith and #JadaPinkettSmith ‘s marriage and the effect it often had on set of the popular television series they produced #AllOfUs!

According to Hollywood Life, Elise claims that the Smiths unhappiness was a forceful factor that caused her to exit “ All of us” back in the early 2000s. She states that their contagious and unhappy behavior lead to her personally being treated very unfair.

Elise played Tia Jewel on the series from 2003 to 2005. Sources have confirmed that the show was based upon Will and Jada’s relationship which aired for four consecutive years until it was cancelled in 2007.

Elise recently appeared within a virtual phone interview with Viral Hip Hop News, to tell her story and explain the dynamics of the Smiths behavior that spread throughout the cast.

“Everyone knows I was on the ‘All Of Us,’ set, right?” Elisa asks. “But here’s what I can say, feeling like something is going to pop me upside the head and come out of the blue. If someone is unhappy, they spread that unhappiness to others. I wasn’t happy on that set because people treated me in a way that I could tell that they were unhappy.”


Elise continues, “Bottom line is, they decided what their marriage is going to be. They have decided that a long time ago. I’m not involved in their marriage to know what’s going on in. If they decide that they’re going to come together and that’s the type of marriage that they want and they’re okay with that, we are not able to judge that. What I am going to judge is if I come to work for people and they bring that unhappiness on others, like myself. I felt that and received that on that set. And that’s sad to me.”

She goes on to state, I am a very hardworking girl. I had just come from doing a successful show for four years with ‘The Hughleys.’ I’ve done tons of movies… a whole lot of stuff before I did that set. I’m coming to that set to work and excited because I’m like, ‘Ayyyee, I’m about to do something with — these people are cool, these people are great. It’s going to be a great, fun environment. I’ve never worked in an environment with these two great individuals.

Elise admits that, And I know Will and I love Will. I love Will as an individual. I don’t know a lot about him personally,” she said. “I just know I worked with him and I enjoyed working with him. So I was looking forward to having a very fun work experience. And I’m still sad that it was so not like that.”

“Let’s be clear, I’m talking about that individual set. I have a lot of fun on other sets, okay? I’ve had a lot of fun on a lot of jobs that I’ve done. And a lot of people know that I exited that set early,” Elise shares of her exiting the sitcom in 2005.

“I’m going to be happy to say yeah, I miss the money but I didn’t miss coming to work not happy. I was not happy because they were not happy. And I wasn’t being treated fair because they weren’t happy.”
