For the past 20 years, Janet Hubert has beefed with her former castmates on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
And her latest antics proves a reconciliation is not in the future.
Janet Hubert played the original Aunt Vivian from seasons 1 to 3. She was quickly replaced by Daphne Maxwell-Reid due to her and Will Smith’s beef for season 4 until the series ended. Ever since she was axed from the show, the hurt and anger have stuck with her. She doesn’t like them and is not minced to tell anyone who will listen.
Interestingly enough Hubert is a fan favorite aunt. Despite leaving after season 3 she left a monumental impact on everyone. Unfortunately, new fans of the syndicated series will only remember all the times in recent years that the Original Aunt Viv shaded the Fresh Prince cast.
If she’s not attacking her favorite target Will Smith, she’s attacking someone else associated with the series. Her most recent bullseye was on Alfonso Ribeiro, her former son Carlton Banks. After Ribeiro posted a picture with the cast reuniting at Karyn Parson’s (Hilary) charity event Hubert wasted no time reading him to filth.
Since this was not an isolated incident but one of many, check out five times the Original Aunt Viv shaded the Fresh Prince cast.
Janet Vs. Carlton
Over the weekend Carlton and the rest of his TV family met up at Karyn Parson’s (Hillary) charity event. They took a picture which he posted on Instagram with the caption:
Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.
The post went viral and when Janet Hubert got wind of the “Fresh Prince family” reunion she went off. The original Aunt Viv shaded the Fresh Prince cast starting with Carlton who she called a “media hoe” and “ass wipe.”
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.”
Janet Vs. Will Smith Pt 1
In 2011 Will Smith posted a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion picture after having dinner with his former cast. Hubert, of course, was not included and when TMZ approached her about it, she called Will an “asshole” and egomaniac.
“There will never be a reunion…as I will never do anything with an a—hole like Will Smith. 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.”
Janet Vs Will Smith and Alfonso Ribeiro Pt 2
In 2013 Hubert was having a change of heart about having a reunion with her former castmates. She spoke about wanting to end her “21-year war” with Will Smith to do a reunion. However in doing she also shaded him.
“[Smith] said ‘we’re just gonna replace her and act like nothing happened. Well honey, that is not what happened, is it? The world has let me know that my place on that show was very, very, very loved … I felt demonized and beaten up and crucified for many many years, no one came forward in my defense.”
She also added:
[Smith did] “some heinous, horrible things to me — they were like bad kids, Will and Alfonso [Ribiero], especially Alfonso. He said that I was crazy and nobody wanted to go to lunch with me.”
We must stand in our power.

Janet Vs. Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith Pt 3
Janet and Jada had a back and forth argument that stemmed from the Oscar So White controversy at last year’s Oscars. When we say argument it was more like Janet attacked Jada Pinkett but Mrs. Smith took the high road.

Janet Vs Wendy Williams
Tatyana Ali visited the Wendy Williams show to talk about her current endeavors. While there Williams asked Ali why Hubert was replaced by Daphne Reid to play Aunt Vivian. The 33-year-old answered in a classy manner but Hubert did not.
Once the interview aired, Hubert took to Facebook to address “Wiggy Williams”:
“If you want to know something about me or anything about my life, why not go to the horses mouth instead of being a horse’s ass and going to someone who was a little girl at the time, Wiggy Williams? How you doin!! Just saying it like I mean it sistergirl.”
She continued her wrath against the talk show host in an open letter which she read on live TV.
Honorary Mention: Janet Vs. Kenya Moore
In 2015 Hubert worked with Kenya Moore on a TV pilot called Life Twirls On. Their relationship turned bad when Janet refused to be double-filmed for Real Housewives of Atlanta. In turn, Moore refused to pay her for the pilot that failed to be picked up.
Eventually, Kenya paid Hubert but according to the actress, the reality star misrepresented how much she paid. That led to an audit over the discrepancy.
Which led to Janet to blast Kenya on Facebook.
“Lord help me I thought I was done dealing with this horrible horrible woman. I got a bill from the IRS the other day for working with… Guess Who. Lying to the IRS that you paid me more than you did is fraud C*ntya Moore. Punishable big time. My accountants have proven my figures. Good luck proving yours.
