"Why do I know so much about these people's marriage?" Ana said on the Oct. 11 episode of the show. "Like, literally—I kind of feel like I know more about their marriage than I know about my own damn marriage."
The 51-year-old noted she'd rather watch reruns of Will's movie Bad Boys and his '90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air than hear more about his marital status with Jada.
"Just leave this out of my head," she continued. "I don't need to know all of this."
Over the course of their 26-year marriage, Will and Jada's relationship has made headlines. This includes when the Matrix: Resurrection alum admitted to an "entanglement" with August Alsina in a 2020 episode of her series Red Table Talk.
However, not all The View cohosts agreed with Ana's remarks. Joy Behar pointed out "a lot of people are fascinated by this particular couple." In fact, Sunny Hostin noted she was one of them—especially given the 2022 Oscars incident in which Will slapped Chris Rock for making a joke about Jada's bald head when she lives with alopecia.
"I don't think anybody knows what goes on in any marriage," Sunny added. "They've lived very public lives, and the slap heard around the world I definitely thought was a reaction of Will's to sort of, I guess, protect her honor somehow."
Still, Ana questioned the timing of Jada—who is releasing her memoir Worthy Oct. 17—sharing these insights.
"Listen, I think she's having a relationship with her bank account," she said. "'Cause every time she needs to increase the ratings of the Red Table, every time she needs to sell books, she drops these bombshells. I find it unseemly. And I will tell you this: Be careful of anybody who pretends to have a perfect marriage."
However, Joy called the move "smart," and Sunny said Jada was "brave" for sharing her story in her memoir.
"I think it has less to do with money," she added. "She has plenty of money."
Ultimately, Ana couldn't believe Jada and Will kept the secret for so long. "You telling me, he slapped the s--t out of Chris Rock, ruined his career, got banned from the Oscars, swept us all up in the drama, and they're not even schtupping," she wrote on her Instagram Stories. "Not for 7 years?"
As for the reason Jada and Will stayed tight-lipped?
"I think just not being ready yet, still trying to figure out between the two of us how to be in partnership and in regards to how do we present that to people," the 52-year-old told Hoda Kotb in Today's October 11 clip from the upcoming Jada's Story – An NBC News Special. "And we hadn't figure that out."
However, Jada noted they haven't decided to legally end their marriage.
"I made a promise that there will never be a reason for us to get a divorce," she continued. "We will work through whatever, and I just haven't been able to break that promise."
