MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that actress Janet Hubert, the first Aunt Vivian on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air is writing some kinda tell-all book. Apparently she’s still hot about getting fired and replaced from the show in 1993 by actress Daphne Maxwell Reid.
Here’s what she said about Don Cheadle’s minor role on the series:
Smith had people around him who made sure no one outshone him. I was happy to see Don Cheadle become the quality actor that he is, and often wondered how he made it past one episode, as Hilary's boyfriend, being such a fierce actor. No one could be on 'The Tonight Show,' that first season, except Will. And I mean no one.
Here’s what she said about actress Countess Vaughn being REJECTED by Will for the series:
I recall the lovely and incredibly talented Countess Vaughn coming to guest star. Oh my God! The day of table read, she was pee-in-your-pants funny. The writers were howling, we were howling, so I knew she was history – banished into the cornfield. Many years later, after she had her own show, I had to tell her when she asked me why. 'Miss Janet why did I get cut from the episode,' she asked? Simply, my darling, you were too good
Here’s how she found out that she got fired:
My mind was going in a million places. OK, I thought, they will come back; this is how they do it. They always come back. I started into the kitchen where Rayna – my friend, housekeeper and nanny was. She was doing dishes as baby E was enjoying a swing. I knelt down, kissed his head, and waited for the next round of negotiations. They never came.
The next time Michael [her agent] called he said, 'They are going to recast your role.' There was a beautiful stained glass window that I designed in the bedroom, and the windows were open, so my neighbors probably heard me scream. And that beautiful window probably has many cracks in it. Time of Death: approximately 3 pm. The real Vivian Banks was murdered
She really needs to let it go … nobody is really trying to hear what her bitter azz has to say about Will…
OMG...I'M # 1 ON SUMTHIN...AND SO WHAT'S WRONG WITH A *CLEARING THROAT* EGO...SO HE GOT A COUGH COUGH* EGO
that was like 15 years ago
Isn't this like a SUPER OLD story...come on MTO, ya'll ain't lying about it being a SLOWWWW DAY 4 Real
I liked her then they had to change the actress
Stop hating on that man Aunt Viv.
This is so old MTO. Get it together!!!!!!
They never got along. I think he was disrespectful to her on many occasions.
We all know Will is full of himself.
i know her ...lolz
follow me on: Twitter.com/ShaVocalz
He should have gigantic ego, he worked har for it!
and that he should have a giant ego he is one of the best acctors you can hire!!!! he has that right
It's kinda LATE for that now!
Wow, let it go!
Let it go momma just let it go. Will is and always be da man!
thats messed up but thats how show bizz is...
your HOT one day Not the next
Lol...not the beautiful stained glass has cracks in it from her screaming lol
Everyone holds Will on such a high pedestal its time they knew the truth!
How old is this really? MTO this isn't news.
The 1st 'Aunt Viv' was fired b/c she thought she was the star.
mto yall r retarted.SHE AINT LYIN
This is a NON-ISSUE. Next.
She said that back in the day, that Will was the star and it was his way or the highway... I believe it too I hated the new Aunt Viv, she was wack
This *** old as hell anyway let it go
didnt yall post this awhile ago!!
And her point is?????
Fresh prince been off the air for how long? It's time for her to let it go.
I'M GLAD SHE PUTTING WILL ON BLAST
No, she doesn't need to let it go. She's free to tell it as many times as she wants. If MTO doesn't like it, then why write a story on it? Will is cutthroat, a mediocre actor, and now he's a crazy Scientologist.
HOW MANY F^CKING TIMES IS MTO GOING TO POST THIS? I HAVE SEEN THIS ON THIS SITE A MILLION TIMES! THE *** WAS WHACK AND I DIDN'T LIKE HER CHARACTER AND IT'S A SHAME SHE IS STILL BITTER AFTER SO MANY YEARS! GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE! NO ONE EVEN LIKED HER ON THE SHOW BECAUSE SHE WAS SUCH A ***. ON THE OTHER HAND EVERYONE SAYS HOW NICE WILL IS TO EVERYONE. THE FRESH PRINCE HAS HAD ANY ACCOMPLISHED GUEST STARS AND SHE IS SAYING WILL WAS WORRYING ABOUT COUNTESS? LMAO! WE DON'T BELIEVE YOU! YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE!
I just figured she was fired because she was too dark skinned to be in that family. I never liked the new Aunt Viv because of that.
I liked the original Aunt Viv and was *** when they replaced her with that walking mannequin Daphne Maxwell. They took Aunt Viv and turned her into a set piece. And I bet Aunt Viv ain't the only one with these stories. But I still love me some Will Smith. LOL
*** ID STILL BE MAD TOO! THATS WHY WILL SMITH THE ONLY FAMOUS ONE OUT THE BUNCH.......WOULDNT YALL DO THE SAME THING IF YALL CAME INTO A GROUP OF TALENTED ACTORS AND HAD TO LEARN HOW TO ACT WHEN EVERYONE ELSE ALREADY KNEW HOW...... WILL GET AT ME!
the Fresh Prince of Bel Air jumped the shark with the new Aunt Viv.
THATS *** UP...FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER.COM/OriiginalKiKi
who cares. we all know will smith got a big ego just like 99% of celebs........thats why they are celebs
MTO tell the real story, this is not why she was fired..I remember when this happened. I actually have one of my family members who was a director for this show, she actually "quit"; because she did not like her character and what they had her do.
she just mad that she can't get another job
im still mad they got rid of her too dammit...she was believeable and she was funny...
MTO I am still crying about that real MRS. Banks was the bizz, and every one knows it, I could not stand the new lady hence the reason the show was let go.
MTO said "She really needs to let it go … nobody is really trying to hear what her bitter azz has to say about Will…"
I loved her better than Daphne Reid. Daphne was boorrringg.
will smith is ***
its called "the law of attraction"
google it mofos....
She needs to get the *** over it!
This *** happened like almost 20 years ago.
Is she gonna blame will smith for why she hasn't had a job since fresh prince?
WHY IS SHE TALKING NOW?
Okay it's a little late now. People might have cared back then, but now who gives care?
I know most of you sheep and especially you brain washed female sheep on here probably would die at the chance of having Will Smith's *** in your mouth but I believe every fuggin word of what the old Aunt Viv is saying and I also think that a lot of it had to do with her being too dark as well. Most of you lame *** n*ggas will never understand anyway because you're a bunch of programmed brain washed sheep with your heads up your *** and you're all quite frankly useless to the black race so therefore you should all be eliminated. Anyway, all you lame *** n*ggas have a bad day.
Sounds like she's trying to make some money. I don't think this book will be on the number one bestseller list. She should give it up.
get over it baby
You no compassion having ignorant useless son of a ***. Do you realize how hard it is for blacks and especially a black woman as dark as the old Aunt Viv to get work in Hollywood and you fix your funky *** *** *** mouth to say some sh*t like what you said? You should've been on that flight that got lost from Brazil you inconsiderate piece of sh*t. I know that's harsh to say but you're worthy of such a harsh statement you piece of fuggin sh*t. I hope you lose your fuggin job you ***.
@illslogic- Wow. Bitter much? Regardless of how and why she got fired, it's been some 20 years ago! If she had any class she would keep those bad experiences to herself. Will is an established, rich, A list star. Why drag this brother's name through the mud? Why release this book NOW, at the height of Will's fame? She sounds like she's bitter.
Oh *** I'm to tired to read this morning! Isn't she dead?
I preferred her over the new Viv but this is a long time ago and I think it's time for her to let it go...
20 years ago? What fuggin difference does it make if it was 20 years ago? She's obviously still hurting from that sh*t and couldn't gain any work since then apparently. Do you know how much staying on a show as successful as that could've gotten her more work once it was over? Bitter my ***, don't *** on a *** shoes and then get mad when they kick your *** once they realize it's not raining. Hell, black people still haven't gotten equal rights, reperations, etc. from sh*t steaming 400 years ago so 20 years ago ain't sh*t.
You are sooo right. MTO recycles this story at least 3 times a year.
Loved the orignial Aunt Viv she was some kinda spicy on the show...She had a mind of her own..Its ashame that we as people don't know how to treat others, as much as I love Will Smith, I can see him having a big ego..It's ashame he didn't realize that everyone has a job to do and the original was doing a great job to make the show work on a whole..the Daphne Maxwell Reid was terrible on that show and I love her also..but she didn't work. Hope things work out for Janet Hubert she is very talented
NO, SHE GOT FIRED BECAUSE, HER SKIN TONE WAS TOO DARK FOR THE AUDIENCE THAT WILL WAS BEING MARKETED TO. LOOK AT THE NEXT MOM THAT THEY BROUGHT IN. SHE WAS MUCH LIGHTER, AND CAUSED LESS OF A THREAT.
I ALSO DON'T BELIEVE THAT IN REAL LIFE WILL SMITH IS AN @SSHOLE. OF COURSE, I CAN'T BE FOR SURE, BUT HE JUST DOESN'T COME OFF LIKE THAT. THEN AGAIN HE'S AN ACTOR SO YOU NEVER KNOW.
I'M GOING TO GIVE HER THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT, AND SAY THAT IF SHE WAS BEING BLACK-BALLED LIKE THAT AND COULDN'T GET HER SHINE ON BECAUSE OF WILL, IT WAS ALL BECAUSE OF THE POWERS THAT BE, AND NOT NECESSARILY HIM.
dang maybe that is what happened but im sure she living good so she needa let it go
while I did like the first Aunt Viv better and totally ignored the second, airing out old $h!t in public is not a good look...
Many great actors, athletes, leaders have been rejected, but they used that rejection as motivation...
E'rbody know Will is a dyck-head.
i believe it
if thats what happened, they really treated her badly. I also heard Will used to back talk and he eventually black mailed her.
I FIGURED WILL DID NOT LIKE DARK SKINNED PEOPLE EXCEPT TO BE THE HELP (JEFFREY)........
SOME STUFF NEEDS TO BE SAID IT IS HER PERROGATIVE.. KNOWING WILL HE PROBABLY HAD A 10 YEAR CLAUSE AND THEY COULD NOT TALK ABOUT IT. THE NEW AUNT VIV SUCKED AND COULD NOT ACT AT ALL. YOU SE HOW NOONE ELSE HAS MADE IT, RIGHT......
I CAN BELEIVE IT.. WILL HAS ALWAYS BEEN A DIVA..
WE DON'T KNOW THE REAL STARS OR WHAT THEY ARE REALLY LIKE. THE WHOLE INDUSTRY IS CUT THROAT AND YOU THINK HE MADE IT BY ROLLING OVER...HUMP!!
EVERY0ONE KNOWS WILL IS ON HIMSELF AND IT HAS BEEN FOR A MINUTE NOW....
i dont believe dis ***
Why is she still trying to come forth with this info years and years later? It's too *** late now. And why is it that she's the only one saying this? I'm sure she's not the only person he's offended in all the years of that show. I don't doubt that this is the truth, but it's ***-near irrelevant now. The man has a family and an extremely successful acting career... What do u want from this story 14 years later?
You have to admit though, after her part was recast, the show took a dive. She was the realest non-stereotypical person on that entire show. I loved her as Aunt Viv and she was more funnier than Ms. Reid.
no aunt viv, it twas U that had the huge ego & attitude problem...everybody knows that..don't play...
"She really needs to let it go … nobody is really trying to hear what her bitter azz has to say about Will" MTO that's what you said after the article...so WHY did you print it????????????
This is old news...But I did like the old aunt viv better...
i hope she tell every thing she knows about the matter. i liked her better as the aunt she is the better actress of the two IMHO
WOW...the show ain't even around no more...this is like 20 yrs old ain't it?? lol
Trying to make money off of TRYING to bring Will down...I wonder what Jada would have to say?
She's talking about Black actors, but her silly azz bringing up old news trying to put a BLACK actor on blast...typical.
i heard she felt that she was the star of the show. and thats why she was kicked off. but i dont know why she would want to come out talking about this now.
wills a big star and what happend like 15 years ago isnt going to affect him now. everyone else from the show seemed to like him. no one else said anything.
blackchinadoll4life......... can you stop advertising that cramp in every tread go sale that cramp outta the trunk of ya car.
Why Auntie Viv nails all fu*ked up like that.
@mscrystalclear & BlakGold look like twins.
he was the Star, you were the Diva Aunt Viv...
he was the money maker...something's gotta give!
>>> see Diva TV in the bay area & at DSNmusic.***
i would have a giant ego too if i was as rich and desirable as him lol
I think fair is fair. We see to often people have good roles on good shows and they get done so wrong. I adore Will Smith but I believe Janet (VIV).
Will has admitted to being big headed at some point so she may have some truth to this. Let's let her vent people. She will feel better afterwards.
UH.... OLD News surfacing for what?
Follow me on Twitter.com/dominiquesexy1
We have to have empathy for her and see this from her point of view. She is a serious actress and most of them think someone is disrespecting their craft when a non actor like Will comes around and blows up the spot. Only she knows what happened not us.
I would have been on his good side if I were her. Look at him now.
i think jada said that about will once. she said something like she had to remind him of what it was.
mscrystalclear...I do remember that. Jada tried for the part to be Will girlfriend but they said she was too ***. Jada said will was big headed on that show too.
Will just needs to tell Janet (viv) he is sorry for anything he has done and with Wills charm Janet will forgive Will in seconds. lol.
It's a shame that Will has not reached out to this lady all this time he still a great actor though
I am light skin and I disagree.
I luv aunt viv complexion. She had nice skin tone and you could tell she was a dancer because she had a lean muscular figure. I liked her sassiness to the show and thought her character kept it real although the character lived in a nice neighborhood. The other one was pretty too but boring.
But that is just me though.
WELL IT'S HISTORY BUT SHE HAS A RIGHT TO TELL HER STORY. WILL SMITH AINT ALL THAT AND HE'S A FREAKY HOLLYHO WHICH IS THE ONLY REASON HE MADE IT SO FAR..TELL EM VIV!!
THIS WOMAN'S COMPLEXION *** HAVE STOPPED HER FROM WORKING. SHE'S BEAUTIFUL AND SHE'S A GREAT ACTRESS..THAT OTHER VIV WAS PATHETHIC AS AN ACTRESS. THIS LADY COULD HAVE EASILY GOTTEN ON A SOAP AND BEEN WONDERFUL. ALL THE BEST ACTORS ARE ON SOAPS....
I never sensed Will was an as.shole but who knows? IDW Vivian got kicked off but I can't really speculate. But Viv was the BEST Viv.
WILL SMITH AIN'T *** BUT A PHAG MARRIED TO A ***..AND HE'S NOT THAT TALENTED...PUNK AZZ BOOTY ***!! LOL..
This story is at least 5 years old. Catch up MTO.
WHAT'S WRONG WITH HER MAKING SOME MONEY OFF HER PAIN? HELL, SHE GOTTA EAT TOO!!LOL
She was the better Viv...the other one was to emotional at the time
I would still be *** too she hasn't really done anything since.The light version of Aunt Viv didn't fit the role nor was she a strong actress.She just wasn't believable But Will had *** cowboy *** sex with Q. So he paid the cost to be the boss.
Well if nobody trying to hear it, then why are you posting it, MTO? She was the better Aunt Viv, tho. The other one was a hot mess. I couldn't get used to her.
As to WIll's ego, I am sure you could use that to describe most major Hollywood leading men and women so that is not big news. My question is "why now"? Who wants to read about the Fresh Prince of Bel Air all these years later???
@reddragon is Jada really a ***. It's something about Jada I don't like, she's not pretty to me. I can't put my finger on it...but something is not right. I think she's gotten where she is because of Will. Jada really didn't have that much star presence until later on after her arrangement with Will. Cause you know divorce is not an option.....
lol she already said this before
its been YEARS why is she still bitter?
This biotch needs to get a life because she's been crying about this *** for years now. OK he had/has a big *** EGO!!! Let's keep it moving. She has derailed herself by staying so stuck in the past; she's sad to have spent all this time talking about her problems with him on the set. Those episodes are throw backs now, lol.
Wow, I always wanted to know what happened with that whole situation! Fresh Prince is and will always be my favorite show!!! But I notice that this happened a lot, with the first cast member(dark skinned) being replaced with a light skinned cast member! It has happened on family matters, fresh prince, and my wife and kids...don't act like yall don't notice that! It's a shame too because I thought the 1st aunt vib was the best. She was very strong willed and played the role perfectly. When the new one came in it seemed like she didn't know a *** thang! But that's still my show though!
Oh yeah, I wanna read her book, when does it come out?!?! I didn't know that Kim from the parkers was rejected from being a guest star on the show!
And did yall know that Jada tried to audition for the part of Lisa(will's girlfriend) but got turned down because she was too ***?? But she ended up getting him for real!!..lol
Yes we do have to let go of negative past, but this is not the case with this woman. I do not like Will Smith and I never will like him. I think that he and his ghetto Skeletor wife are fake. Will can not act and her *** his way to the top. Jada's new show is boaring. Jada used to be down with the black cause. Nowdays the only thing she is down with is hanging out with Tom Cruise and the Beckems and the blackest Will has ever been is in his Summer Time music video. I hope others come up and tell on him. Bump Them! Next!
Janet Hubert was far better. Daphne was boring and when is Hollywood going to step up and give darker skinned acors of any race a chance. Hollywood is the biggest stage for racism in America.
Funny thing no one seemed to ask themselves why is it that Will Smith is the only one still making movies? And to be honest he was one of the worst actors on that series.
The new Aunt Viv was BS, she was/ is married to Reid, who if i'm not mistaking was an exec. producer together with Quincy Jones. Thing is *** is as *** does. Will Smith HAD to do something in order to get where he is. It wasn't until 2007 will has been cast for different kinds of roles. So how can you claim he's one of the best actors. Please!!!!
i love the both of them.. not sure who's side to b on
SHE DIDN'T BRING IT UP! THE REPORT ASKED HER ABOUT THE SITUATION!
SHE JUST ANSWERED THE REPORTERS QUESTION.
I LOVED HER AS AUNT VIV. SHE REALLY FIT THE ROLE AND WAS VERY GOOD AS PLAYING HER.
PLUS SHE WAS VERY SOPHISTOCATED.
DAPHNE JUST COULDN'T ACT. SHE DIDN'T FIT. IT ALSWAYS SOUNDED AS IF SHE WERE READING.
This isn't surprising.Young + rich = ego. Will Smith seems arrogant to this very day. By why release all this info now, so many years later???
and it seems like she hasnt worked since then. lol
I wanna hear what she has to say. It makes a lot of sense because Will Smith was corny on Fresh Prince of Bel Air and his rapping skills were watered down...that's why he's not rapping today...he's not real! So, it makes a lof of sense. Will is not that great...did you see Seven Pounds? He kept making the same puke-like expression...that's what happens when you *** your wife and men on the side! weak!
and how long this show been off air?
Didn't you already do a story on this?
Why does she keep this sh!t going? no one cares move on Aunt Viv.
We are getting somewhere!!!!!!! Keep it going. Jada has changed also.
Well, FPOBA is one of my FAVOURITE shows ever!!..lol... I did hear that Will Smith got Janet fired during the season when she was pregnant on the show... I think Janet was "sassier" than Daphne, but I still liked the show anyway...
And why is everyone talking about this happened "20 years ago?" Wasn't the show on in the early 90s??!!
I can understand the ego..it was HIS show after all!! Was he as nasty as she's saying? Who knows? Everyone has their "representative" or "outside persona" in public, so we may never know...
But the 1st aunt Viv was waaaay better.. I'm a Fresh Prince fan and th e2nd Aunt Viv did not live up to the role..I can see Will being an ***, but, hey, most actors are..NO ONE wants to be outshined..
omy..illslogic, will u marry me?
10 YR OLD NEWS! FRED PLEASE TAKE UR WACK *** TO SLEEP or step ur news game up!
dont like smith like that anyway
Ha ha!!! Fred go to sleep!!!!
what actor doesn't have a GIANT egO?
If Aunt Viv was so great why haven't we seen her since?! ***, she's old now and still can't let it go.......... I don't believe it anyway
im glad she is putting him on blast because she was the ***, 1 of the reasons why i watched the show... i was *** off when they brought tht light skin woman, she was ***. someone should sit will down and ask him his point of view and see what he will say.
his sexy *** cant act
ima whoop jada's *** and steal her man
dame he fine
Is she still nursing that grudge? Injustice is the way of life. Adapt. Only one black mega-star, if that, can jump off from a tv sitcom anyway. It’s illogical to think she was replaced for being too dark. Did the bulb blow out at the casting call? No, Viv’s problem was more likely attitudinal as evidenced by this years-long brooding. The lengths we go to to gain sympathy!
TELL ANUNT VIV...NOW WILL GOT A BIG BANK ACCOUNT!!! STOP BEING BITTER.. MOVE ON!!!
The original Aunt Viv was the bomb. I read years ago that *** azz Will Smith was the cause of her being fired from the show. The New one that replaced her was very bland and had no character. Will is a egotistical, ***, perverted individual. He don't like anyone outshinning him. It was said that he kept threatening Selma Hynecks job in the Wild Wild West. He figures he is the big kahuna and calls the ***. With his shame of a marriage. Will appears more feminin and Jada more masculine. Has anyone noticed this. They are GENDER BENDING. That is what freaks do.
By the way Will Smith is not the Best Black actor to me. Terrance Howard will act his azz under a table. He looks sick to me. It appears that he has age 15yrs in the last 2. All gray haired. TRUST ME WILL LOOKS SICKLY, what's up with that???
Will is a part of the Fraternal order called The BLACK BOULE. It consists of wealthy entertainers, politicians and corporate heads. They have a convention that is given once every 2 years somewhere in Atlanta. Mostly men attend this function. THEY ENGAGE IN *** SEX AND HAVE s RITUALS. Most of your famous Black Celebrities belong to this order. You must understand that the entertainment business is very FRATERNAL. Also there is alot of nepotism that takes place. Alot of these celebs are related to each other. Haven't anyone notice that they hide who their children are alot of times.
"She really needs to let it go … nobody is really trying to hear what her bitter azz has to say about Will…"
STFU MTO! She doesn't need to "let it go". What she has to say about his actions are relevant because it gives insight into his character and his level of respect for the success and upliftment of other black entertainers.
What "Aunt Viv" had to say is just validates my view of him as a douchbag and that shucking & jiving show, TFPOBA, as less than abysmal.
Well, I liked her MUCH better than the new Aunt Viv. Daphne couldn't even act! I can believe he was *** at one point and hated for anyone to outshine him. She wouldn't kiss his *** and was fired for it. *** shame.
She came out with this story YEARS ago----It's just now being broadcast because the internet blogs and gossip sites are more popular now for gossip and rumors.
I NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY GIRLS GO CRAZY OVER WILL SMITH. I MEAN HE ALRIGHT BUT I NEVER WAS FEELING HIM LIKE THAT. LIKE METHOD MAN AND MALIK YOBA, JAMIE FOXX TO NAME A FEW, I DONT GET IT. I BELIEVE EVERYTHING SHES SAYING. I NEVER LIKE WAS FELLING HIM IN THAT TYPE OF WAY BUT I ALWAYS THOUGHT WAS A COOL DUDE BUT OF COURSE HE HAS TO PUT THAT TYPE OF IMAGE ON THATS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT CAN MAKE OR BREAK HIS CAREER. THATS HOW THE ENT. BIZ IS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF KANYE WEST, THIS DUDE IS SO ARROGANT AND NOBODY SEEMS TO REALLY TO CARE.
***!!! I LOOOOVE WILL AND HIS WIFE JADA. IF AUNT VIV WAS SOOOO SMART SHE SHOULD'VE KNOWN THE SIGNS AND TOOK HEED LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.
i always thought is was because she had dark skin
she was the best actor on that show
but will was born for ***
She still fuming about this ish from 1902. Why?
Nicca please. I doubt if Will Smith is part of the Boule (it's pronounced BOO-LAY for some of y'all that don't know). He's not powerful enough or accomplished enough. Just because silly Black folk and dumb white people think he's the sh!t doesn't mean he has what it takes to be a part of the Boule. What has he done for Black communities? What power does Will Smith have? Get the f*ck out of here with that BS.
WILL IS HAVING MONEY and doin his thang. Aunt Viv was the *** on the show. She used to be snapping. I watch Fresh Prince every morning and it come on Nick at Nite so who cares......
Wait, you mean she STILL hasn't moved on after all these years?Talk about holding a grudge…
tyme2rise is a mess....lol, but he/she is tellin the truth..
THE TRUTH is Will Smith is *** & apart of the down-low-low "secret society." According to a Hollywood Madame *** used to pay for *** SEX.
HERE'S THE LINK: READ IT FOR YOURSELF.
IUC has learned actor Will Smith has swung both ways for years. According to a notorious Hollywood Madame, Smith was a client of hers for years before she packed up shop and moved her operation to Manhattan earlier this year. She remembers the first time she ever spoke with Smith. (for more on the Hollywood Madame and other A list clients of hers Click Here)“I had to reassure him over and over that I could guarantee discretion,” she said. “Once I convinced him I could, he placed his order. It was for a man. I had 14 women working for me and two guys. You’d be surprised at how many Hollywood stars requested the services of the guys.”
Could Smith’s proclivities account for his recent apparent conversion to Scientology, a religion that’s chief appeal in Hollywood appears to be its promise to turn *** people straight. At least according to long-time Scientologist Michael Pattinson, who sued the Church for failing to keep that promise after he shelled out $500,000 in auditing fees over a 25-year period but was never “cured” of his *** as promised.
How long ago did this show end.. i liked her as aunt viv though
It takes some people longer than others to get over situations, and she has all rights to express how she feels. I'm a individual who likes to examine life from all prespectives, and this to shows another example of dark skinned blacks are treated third class to light skinned blacks. I hope she's able to make a full come back, she deserves it!
I loved her as aunt Vivian. Her figure was so nice. I think she was much better than the other lady who played Aunt Vivian because the other woman seemed to homely for me plus the first aunt vivian was way more believable. But, what I can't seem to figure out is how everybody continued watching the fresh prince after she was replaced like it was nothing? Even I didn't really notice the difference until now. For some odd reason I still remember how Harriet was replaced by that lady who played gina's mama off of "martin". I guess I remembered that because the second Harriet was terrible actress.
Is it just me or was will smith more attractive when he was on the fresh prince than he is now? It may have a little to do with how new he was to the entertainment world and I guess he just seemed like more of an "around the way guy".
Oh, sounds like honest truth ... and standard dealings in Horror-wood.
Beware those who seek her wiles.
sounds interesting!! lol but on a serious note she needs to get some therapy for that lol who's carrying around all that anger for about 20 yrs now?...woah...
I figured Will had a big azz ego...
Aunt Viv needs to move on now. That was over a decade ago...
She know damnwell her dark *** got cut cuz she was blacker than the viewers they were tryna reach out to.
this is why she bitter, cuz Will aint try to save her from getting hacked. but tell yo story lady. i aint readin it.
divas rule the world
I always thought that Janet Hubert was a brilliant,beautiful and talented actress.She played Aunt Viv way better than Tim Reid's wife,Darlene.What Janet is saying is very true.There were always clashes on the set between Will and Janet,he was responsible in her being fired.I feel that Janet should have gotten her due and the respect that she was entitled to.Hollywood are full of racism,and cutthroat dealings . Fresh Prince of Bel Air no longer had that spark once Janet was fired.In fact,not long after janet was gone,that shows ratings began plummeting and then,the season ended
This is very old, very. C'mon man, give me something new.
come ant viv its over and done move on
she's a hater
I believe her, but really....it's been 16 years. Get over it, Vivian.
I loved the 1st Aunt VIV. She played the role to a T. And then along came this high yellow, boring *** character to play Aunt VIV. Don't get me wrong, I am light skinned and I have nothing against light skin, but Janet was the best.
She was funny and she was like a true aunt.
I thin they put the light bright on the show to try and make it more popular and appeal to the white folk. NOT!!!
I like the first Aunt viv anyway. But seriously, in this business it's every man for himself. Will is playing the rules of the game.
Janet Hubert can dance her azz off, she should try for a judge's spot 'so you think you can dance.'
Yeah, it's sad that she's been bitter all this time, but her scoop is pretty interesting. Will was sabotaging others. And the new Aunt Viv made no kinda sense, LOL! she didn't resemble old Viv, and she was a blah actress.
The show "jumped shark" w/ new aunt Viv, for me.
I really loved her in that role on the show. I was definitely shocked and saddened to see her go. I could never really get into Ms Reid as the mother, not that she didn't do a good job, it was just that it was overshadowed b/c she was replacing someone else who pretty much owned that character. I think Janet Hubert has the right to tell her story and speak her truth. Maybe she needs the closure b/c it seems she was blackballed after whatever happened with that show.
Sometimes in life we need to fall back. The name of the show was Fresh Prince not Aunt Viv. If she had stayed in her lane; she probably would still be collecting residual checks right now. She's the DUMBA$$.
Imma need for her to move on ...
The shows on nick @ nite ... it's time to let bygones be bygones ...
Ya'll must be going thru a slow news cycle because this was written many years ago. Why is MTO recycling old old news?
Why is she crying about something that happened 20 years ago. Keep working at McDonalds and *** the *** up......Old hag. We don't care....Go away.....PS - Maxwell - Reid leaves you in the dust.. You look like Darth Vader with a nappy wig!
I've never been a Will Smith fan. Sorry!

The lady has right to speak her piece. It was her life and livelihood back then.
I love Will Smith but he does have an ego. He always plays it off with a sort of goofyness but you can tell when push comes to shove his divaness comes out. He is still a great onscreen talent though.
SHE NEED TO GET THE F*CK OVER IT. HOW MANY YEARS AGO WAS IT THAT SHE GOT FIRED? SOMETHING MUST HAVE BEEN WRONG BECAUSE I NEVER SAW HER IN NOTHING ELSE. STFU *** AND MOVE ON.
She needs 2 let da drama go just like da old DC members.
She was a boring actress anyway!!! All these years and she still bitter. She just tryna get back in the eye of the media!!!
yea we do... cause she was the better Aunt Viv! EVERYONE KNOWS THAT!
This is what she needs to move on so write the book and put the real twist on the show.
