Janet Hubert “Aunt Viv” Gives Her First Interview After Reunion
It’s been a 27 year feud. Janet Hubert breaks her silence after the viral video of she and Will Smith reuniting. Janet shares that it has been an emotional journey for her. She shares upon arriving home after the reunion she tried to view the “Red Table Talk Takeover” and ran away from her computer.
“The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion” premiered on HBO Max. The reunion brought the Banks family back together 30 years after the sitcom’s debut.
“These are the people who made me the man I am today,” Smith wrote in an Instagram post. “And I couldn’t let this day go by without marking the occasion.”
The unscripted special was taped on Sept. 10, the 30th anniversary of the original series premiere.
Smith is joined by series regulars Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey Butler), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Vivian Banks) and Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), along with DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz), for an on-set family reunion.
During the reunion, Smith also sits down with Janet Hubert, who originally played the role of Aunt Viv, for the first time in 27 years. It’s really glad to see this over and hope Janet Hubert’s career can be revived.
