Original Aunt Viv Trashes Will Smith Again!

"Blacktress" Janet Hubert trashes Will Smith and Alfonso Ribeiro again.

I am guessing that Janet Hubert will take this feud to the grave. Hubert is still pissed that NBC and Will Smith were responsible for her downfall.

It was over 25 years ago, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was on NBC. The show featured actor/rapper Will Smith, as a fictionalized version of himself. He was on hard times in West Philadelphia. He got into a fight with a gang and his mother wanted him to leave the streets for good.

He would move to Bel-Air to live with his rich uncle and his family. His uncle Phil, a lawyer and mediator. Phil's wife Vivian is a retired doctor and professor. Also Phil had his sarcastic and wise butler Geoffrey, his oldest and preppy son Carlton, the spoiled daughter Hillary, the carefree daughter Ashley and the later baby Nicky.

James Avery, Alfonso Ribeiro, Joseph Marcell, Karyn Parsons and Tatyana Ali were a part of the main cast. The only changes that the show made was the abrupt firing of the original Aunt Vivian.
Best friends for life. Will Smith is the godfather of Alfonso Ribeiro's children.
Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Viv from Season 1 to 3 was fired out the cannon after she demanded she got paid more for her role. According to the Riberio, Hubert made it very difficult for cast, crew and the producers. So she was replaced with Daphne Maxwell Reid. And the show carried on for at least three more seasons.

Will Smith became a famous actor, producer, and media mogul. He and wife Jada Pinkett Smith have partnered up with James Lassiter to create Overbrook Entertainment and has produced shows and movies under their whim.

Now Will Smith does keep in touch with his old castmates. They all reunited for a charity event hosted by Parsons. This was posted on Ribiero and Ali's social media.

Notably absent was James Avery. He died in 2013 after complications from heart surgery.

Hubert was notably absent as well. The cast ignores her literally and it got her furious.

As of today, she continues to hold grudges against Smith and the cast for leaving her out to dry. She took to social media and posted a video in regards to the "reunion."

Hubert said that she has no interest in the reunion and called Ribeiro a "media hoe."

"I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribero [sic] 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 for the Fresh Prince. I have no interest in seeing any of these people on that kind of level."

Many people have come to the defense of Hubert. They considered Hubert, the "realest" Aunt Viv.

She holds nothing back. She is still disheartened by the way Black women are treated in the junk food media. Hubert faults Smith and Ribeiro for the harsh treatment of women in general.
