One memoir isn’t enough!

Jada Pinkett Smith and her “life partner” Will Smith both have penned memoirs, but they seemingly have even more to say on the home front.

Jada revealed they’ve been “talking about writing a book together” in a new two-part interview with “Extra” airing Tuesday and Wednesday.

“The Girl’s Trip” star was mum on specifics, explaining, “You have to wait.” But she did share that the tome’s tentative title will be “Don’t Try This at Home.”

Jada sat down with the entertainment newsmagazine at NYC’s Perleman Performing Arts Center moments before she hit the stage at the venue with Arianna Huffington to discuss her memoir, “Worthy.”

The “Red Table Talk” creator also cleared up a few things during the chat, including the revelation she and Will have been separated for seven years. She’d previously told “Today” host Hoda Kotb that the stars have had “completely separate lives” since 2016.

But Jada told “Extra,” “After the Oscars, we made our way back. I think that piece has been left out of the narrative. I stopped in the book at the Oscars.”

Still, Jada calls Will her “life partner” instead of husband, she said.

“It’s a more expansive definition than what I came into the marriage with around the idea of husband… and I want to just see Will expansively,” she said.

Will told the New York Times via email that Jada’s memoir, which officially hit shelves on Tuesday, “kind of woke him up.”

“When you’ve been with someone for more than half of your life,” he wrote, “a sort of emotional blindness sets in, and you can all too easily lose your sensitivity to their hidden nuances and subtle beauties.”

Well, he’s no longer emotionally blind, according to Jada.

“That’s the whole thing, like that’s been the beautiful part about the second half of our journey,” she said. “We really [have] done a lot of hard work together… It’s a journey.”
