Former ‘Fresh Prince” TV Mom Slams Alphonso Ribeiro In Social Media Post

Well, this is disturbing. The actress who played the original Aunt Vivian on the hit sitcom, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Janet Hubert, took to her Facebook page this week to slam a cast reunion picture, and call out “Carlton”, aka Alphonso Ribeiro.

Alphonso, host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, posted a picture of the cast on his Instagram page. It was a reunion of sorts, with actors: Will Smith, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Daphne Reid (Hubert’s replacement as Aunt Vivian) and Joseph Marcell.

According to Us Weekly Hubert wrote on her Facebook page:

“I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribeiro 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.”


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

In 1993, Hubert played the part of Aunt Viv until she was fired. Apparently, she and Will Smith never quite got along on the set.

In her Facebook post, Hubert also said she plans to pitch a memoir, “Perfection is Not a Sitcom Mom”, and tell the “behind the scenes story before I leave this earth.”
