Seeing that she is best known for her role as the 1st Aunt Vivian on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air“, it would only make sense for Janet Hubert to still have animosity towards her former cast-mates. What’s not new with this situation is the fact that Hubert still has issues with Will Smith, who happened to be the main driving force of the 90s sitcom, which would continue into the 2000s & 2010s with her backhanding Smith (as well as his wife Jada Pinkett Smith) last year that happened to go down a few years after she begged to reconcile with him on TheGrio.
What’s new here is Hubert’s shift from Smith on to her former co-star Alfonso Ribeiro (who played the show’s favorite tap-dancing cornball, Carlton Banks) which stems from a recent reunion photo of the “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s” cast that was uploaded to his Instagram page a few days ago:
Knowing that no mention of her in the above Instagram post has left a salty taste in her mouth, Hubert went on a rant in the form of a now-deleted Facebook post. However, we were able to capture said rant–thanks to Tambay over at Shadow & Act–which you can give a read below:
“I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribero 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.”
Now if you gave that rant a good read, you’d see that Hubert used it as an opportunity to plug her memoir “Perfection Is Not a Sitcom Mom”, which was published back in 2009 and could possibly become a TV show if she has it her way. You can cop said memoir, via Amazon, if interested. Knowing that this has been going since the day she got the boot from the sitcom, I don’t think that there will be an end in sight her Hubert’s grudge.
