The original Aunt Viv (Janet Hubert) from The Fresh Prince has been in the news lately bashing ex co-star, Will Smith. Apparently, she blames Will for her dismissal from the show many years ago.
The scoop: Over the holidays, Will Smith posted a picture on Facebook of the Fresh Prince cast having a reunion dinner to 'start the holidays right,' according to Will, which started a swirl of rumors that there was going to be an official Fresh Prince Reunion.
That's when TMZ got a hold of Janet Hubert and asked her why she was missing from the picture and about the potential reunion, and she replied: “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.”
YIKES! The facts: Fresh Prince has been off the air for 15 years and Janet hasn't been a cast member since 1993....that's 18 YEARS AGO!!!
How can someone hold that much anger for that many years?! Whether it's true or not, something tells me she should have let that go a L-O-N-G time ago! Deep rooted anger is very unhealthy. It effects more than just your mind once it's internalized. It manifests in your body in the form of high blood pressure, migraines or even heart attacks. Not to mention how it effects your relationships with your partner, kids, boss, or even pets.
Is Aunt Viv just a typical Angry Black Woman? Maybe, she's being accused of being an ABW because she has an opinion? Should she have let it go years ago? Is she harming herself by hanging to to such animosity? (she certainly isn't hurt Will...I'm tempted to say he's doing just fine!)
