Janet Hubert, Aunt Viv From ‘Fresh Prince,’ Slams Show’s Reunion Photo

Janet Hubert Fresh Prince Reunion

The recent Fresh Prince reunion photo — which actor Alfonso Ribeiro posted to Instagram earlier this week — will hardly be featured on former co-star Janet Hubert’s refrigerator.

Hubert, who played the show’s original Aunt Viv (she was eventually replaced by Daphne Maxwell Reid four years into the production), was noticeably absent from the image, which was taken at a event thrown by a charity to which former co-star Karyn Parsons belongs. Hubert slammed the pic in a since-deleted Facebook post and said so long as she’s absent, there will never be a true reunion.

Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.

“I know the media hoe [sic] Alfonso Ribeiro has posted his so called reunion photo,” she wrote. “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.”

Hubert insisted the photo hadn’t shaken her, but that she does hope the truth about her alleged feud with Will Smith in the early ’90s does reach resolution.

“I am not offended in the least, by this photo…it was an event for Karen’s charity,” she wrote. “It does however prompt me to take some meetings in Hollywood to pitch my memoir…and tell of the behind the scenes story before I leave this earth.”
