Aunt Viv Puts Will Smith On Blast!
Jun 18 | by Natasha
Remember Aunt Viv from" Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"? The original Aunt Viv? Well Janet Hubert has a new tell-all/memoirs out called Perfection Is Not A Sitcom Mom where she talks about the un-princely conduct of former co-star Will Smith. Here's an excerpt: "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." In an effort to drive the point home, Hubert also recalled an incident where another actor was cut from a guest spot on the show after being too impressive at an early rehearsal for that episode. "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," she recollected.
She then goes on to detail her sudden and unexpected termination from "Fresh Prince." Back then rumors swirled that they simply wanted a lighter skinned mother to play the role. Looks like Vivian Banks is ready to let all the skeletons out the closet two decades later. BV has the rest of the scoop.
