Who would have thought that Aunt Viv was so bitter? Just days ago most of the cast of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” appeared at a benefit, photographed with big smiles. Jazzy Jeff and Janet Hubert were two notable missing faces from the photo. Hubert told TMZ that there is a good reason why she was absent from the event- she has a grudge against star Will Smith!
According to Hubert, Smith is the recent she was fired from the sitcom and ultimately replaced. Though it’s been 15 years, she’s still fuming mad. "There will never be a reunion ... as I will never do anything with an a**hole like Will Smith," Hubert said. "He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up. This constant reunion thing will never ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology, which he doesn't know the word."
She believes that producers fired her because Smith demanded her removal from the show. When she wouldn’t “kiss his butt” he wanted her replaced. Hubert left The Fresh Prince in 1993, Smith defended the actions on an Atlanta radio station. According to Smith, Hubert one told him that she‘s never come across a “snotty-nosed punk“ like him in ten years. He added, “No matter what, to her I'm just the AntiChrist."
Smith hasn’t responded with a statement so far, but maybe if we’re lucky maybe Daphne Maxwell Reid will be down for a reunion. She was the better Aunt Viv anyway!
