Janet Hubert, Aunt Viv from Fresh Prince, has lashed out at the reunion photo

Laura Holland


Earlier this week a Fresh Prince of Bel Air reunion photo was shared. Most of the gang were back together for a special lunch, all except James Avery (who played Uncle Phil) and Janet Hubert (who played the original Aunt Viv).

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

James sadly passed away in 2014 following complications with heart surgery but the reason Janet wasn’t there was unclear. She played the first Aunt Viv for the first three seasons before Daphne Maxwell Reid took over.

She’s clearly still holding some sort of grudge about it because she’s after lashing out at Alphonso (Carlton) who shared the photo.

In a rant on Facebook (which has since been deleted) she said:

“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.”
