The original Aunt Viv was NAT happy about that 'Fresh Prince' reunion

Did you see this, the other day (answer: yes you did):

 

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

A post shared by Alfonso Ribeiro (@therealalfonsoribeiro) on

What fun, what marvellous fun. The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air was great, so by default, this picture is great. Here’s another angle just in case you’re having a wank and want a bit of variety:

Great stuff. Anyway, someone has come along and stamped all over the joyfullness: Aunt Viv.

"But Aunt Viv is already there!” I hear you screech, so much screeching. Well, I’m talking about the old Aunt Viv, from series one to three – one Janet Hubert. She’s spoken out in reaction to the reunion, and she is noooot happy, baby.

She took to Facebook in a now deleted post, and had the following to say:

“I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribero has posted his so called reunion photo. Folks keep telling me about it. He was always the a– 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.”

She’s talking about poor old Carlton, there. Don’t be mean to Carlton – he’s got enough on his plate, being forced to dance at every single opportunity, without getting cussed out on Facebook, too. She continues:

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

Tbf, I would read that, but then I read any book that has a title consisting entirely of capital letters. Either way, it would be nice to finally discover the real reason for the animosity between Hubert and her ex-Fresh Prince friends, wouldn’t it?
