Finally! The original Aunt Viv of fresh prince of bell air has her chance to speak about her experience with Will Smith. The world has waited on this reunion, it has FINALLY happened. Janet Hubert said to Will
“You know, words can kill,” Hubert said to Smith. “I lost everything. Reputation, everything. Everything. I understand, you were able to move forward but you know those words, calling a Black woman difficult in Hollywood is the kiss of death. It’s hard enough being a dark skinned Black woman in this business.” Will Smith went on the thank Hubert for sharing how she felt.
" thank you for sharing that with me. I didn’t know that. When I look back now, it’s obvious that you were having a hard time. I felt like you hated me. I could not do a 30 year celebration of this show and not celebrate you, celebrate your contribution to this show, celebrate your contribution to my life. 27 years, I think. I think we were just short of 27 years that we didn’t speak to one another and I’m glad we’re talking again.”
I am so happy to hear that they are speaking again. God can do ANYTHING! See the healing take place on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion it premieres Thursday (Nov. 19th) on HBO Max.
