Actress and performer Janet Hubert, best known as ‘Aunt Viv’ from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, wasn’t too happy about the latest cast reunion.
The matriarch of the Banks family took a swipe at Carlton and the Fresh Prince himself in a brilliant and hilarious diatribe posted on her Facebook page.
Responding to fans questioning her absence at the gathering, Hubert blamed actor and “media hoe” Alfonso Ribeiro for pretty much everything.
In one gem of a reply she compared Carlton to a ladies hygiene product, saying: “This was from the dumb ass Alphonso Ribeiro, who likes to try and be the spokesperson for the show. He is Will’s tampon…has been for a long, long time,” she stated proudly.
She also went on to detail the relationship between Will and Alfonso, saying: “He was always the ass wipe for Will.” It seems Hubert isn’t ready to let bygones be bygones. We can’t blame her considering the light jab Ribeiro took at the original Aunt Viv in the description of the viral Instagram shot.
“Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete,” he wrote.
It looks like the actress was picking up what he was putting down too – she hit back saying: “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.”
The war between Hubert and all those associated with the iconic TV series has been prolific, to say the least. In the past, she claimed her abrupt departure from the show was due to problems between her and Will Smith.
However, in interviews, Smith has only nice things to say. “I think when you make a show, anytime you make a change, it’s going to be excruciating and painful. I think that Janet Hubert brought a really powerful dignity to the show,” she previously said. She’s obviously not buying it.
Either way, we have more than enough time for Hubert’s authentic reactions to the same old smoke and mirrors often seen in the celebrity Instagram world. More, please.
