‘Fresh Prince’ Beef: Janet Hubert, A.K.A. Aunt Viv, Calls Alfonso Ribeiro A “Media Hoe”
Janet Hubert went on a Facebook tirade yet again, but this time, it’s to call her former television son Alfonso Ribeiro a “media hoe.”
On Tuesday, folks practically peed their pants over a photo of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cast reuniting at Nobu in Malibu. Nostalgic? Absolutely. But here’s where things got tricky.
Aside from the late James Avery missing from the group shot, noticeably absent was Janet Hubert aka the first Aunt Viv. But following all the hoopla surrounding the photo, Hubert got in her feelings and posted a bitter message on Facebook.
In the lengthy post, not only did Janet address not attending the reunion lunch, but she used it as an opportunity to go after Alfonso. “I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribero has posted his so-called reunion photo,” she wrote. “Folks keep telling me about it.”
She continued, “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.”
This is not the first time Janet has spoken ill about her former castmates. Back in 2010, the actress went after the show’s star, Will Smith and suggested her experience on the sitcom was unpleasant.
Around the same time, HipHollywood caught up with co-star Tatyana Ali aka Ashley Banks who explained she had a different experience than her television mom. “I have to say that I had a wonderful experience. It changed my life in a very positive way.”
She added that when drama was brewing between the cast and Hubert, she was “also very young when it was all going on.”
