Lawd! Janet ‘AuntViv’ Hubert GOES OFF For What ‘Fresh Prince’ Cast JUST DID HER!
You know that Old School saying, ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all?’ Yeah, well actress, Janet Hubert, didn’t get that memo back in the day. In fact, biting her tongue just ain’t her style, she’s more of a ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ kind of woman…
Today is one of those days where Ms. Hubert a.k.a. the original ‘Aunt Viv’ from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, is letting her thoughts and a few curse words shoot out like daggers, right toward her former Fresh Prince co-stars. Why? Because they had a mini-reunion the other day, and left her clean out of it.
If you didn’t see the recent online photos Will Smith and Alfonso Ribeiro posted of themselves reunited with all the main characters EXCEPT Janet Hubert (and of course ‘Uncle Phil’ actor, James Avery, who passed away in 2013), here’s what transpired:
After the pics surfaced of Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks); Alfonso (Carlton Banks); Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks); Will (Will) Daphne Etta Maxwell (Vivian Banks) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey), social media world went crazy over them.
Will also captioned one of the pics with “Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.”
Fans were happy to see the crew back together again, but there was one thing people couldn’t help but notice- that the the second ‘Aunt Viv’ (Daphne Maxwell Reid), was there, but the original ‘Aunt Viv’ was no where to be found.
Needless to say, people started posting questions about the original ‘Aunt Viv’s’ absence, which apparently have now made their way back to Janet Hubert. She had a LOT to say, on Facebook, about her exclusion from the reunion. Not only did she threaten to tell all about what really went down behind the scenes of the show, she also took the liberty of calling Alfonso an “a$$ wipe for Will.” In the same breathe, she stated that she was NOT offended…Laaaaawd…
See What Janet Hubert Said About Her Ex Co-Stars Below:
Janet Hubert: “I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribeiro has posted his so called reunion photo. Folks keep telling me about it. He was always the ass wipe for Will. There will never be a true reunion of the Fresh Prince. I have no interest in seeing any of these people on that kind of level. I am not offended in the least, by this photo… it was an event for Karen’s charity. It does however prompt me to take some meetings in Hollywood to pitch my memoir PERFECTION IS NOT A SITCOM MOM, and tell of the behind the scenes story before I leave this earth.”
Uhhh…does that sound like ‘Aunt Viv #1’ is unbothered to y’all? From where we’re standing it sure doesn’t, but we’re not mad at her for speaking her mind. Quite frankly, we get tired of celebrities playing the ‘politically correct game’ all the time. Every now and then it’s cool for them to let loose in public and show that they’re human too- regardless of if we agree with their words, or not.
Anyways, if you know one thing about Janet Hubert, then you know this is one grudge she will NOT let go off anytime soon. Hell, it’s been about 24 years since (1993) she had her falling out with Will Smith (stating that he then got her fired from Fresh Prince) and as you can see, she still can’t stand the brotha. Therefore, we’ll just end this with ‘To be continued…’
