'Fresh Prince' Star

RIPS WILL SMITH

I'll Never Reunite w/ that 'A**hole'

12/27/2011 6:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Aunt Viv on Fresh Prince of Bel Air
The woman who played the original Aunt Viv on "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" says there's a damn good reason she wasn't at a recent reunion dinner with the rest of the Banks family -- she HATES Will Smith.

15 years after the show went off the air ... Janet Hubert tells TMZ, she's still upset with the way she was fired from the show ... and blames the whole thing on Smith himself.

"There will never be a reunion ... as I will never do anything with an a**hole like Will Smith," Hubert said.

1227_fresh_prince_facebook_dateShe adds, "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."

Hubert has said in the past she believes Smith is to blame for her departure in the middle of the show's run -- claiming he turned on her because she wouldn't kiss his butt.

But Smith refuted the claims after Hubert left the show in 1993 -- telling an Atlanta radio station Hubert simply had a bad attitude which played a major role in her demise.

Smith told the radio station, "[Hubert] said once, 'I've been in the business for 10 years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.' No matter what, to her I'm just the AntiChrist."

We called Smith for comment -- so far, no response.

It isn't exactly a revelation that Will Smith was an *******, the things I've heard about how he treats his fans are pretty bad

Real Info on Aunt Vivian    

This crazy bitch after so many years hates Will smith, really??? I think she's holding a grudge because no one would hire her after she got fired. For the truth, Alfonso Ribeiro called her a "Crazy Bitch" also. http://www.gossipbeast.com/?p=2446

He did a stand up on her too. I think shes pissed because she didnt get paid like everyone else.

i personally think her attitude made the role. but i'm sure Will had his youthful attitude in which she may not of understood him as he was & is a comedian 1st and foremost. he may of not known how 2 give her the respect she felt she deserved or needed for her own affirmation as it was a different time & a turning time as well of generational differences in the business. This type of hate and or holding grudges only does harm to yourself than the other.

Janet Hubert, you are nothing but an egomaniac and jealously has gotten you nowhere. So let it go and get a life. You were NOT all that on the show and your successor was definitely much better and prettier than you by far. Enough said!

Will smith has an ego almost as big as his ears! But, I wonder, did he slap Tom Cruise, or, John Travolta when they did more than kiss Will, at their "boys" only PARTIES, just wondering?

The first Janet Hubert was EXCELLENT. And the show was extremely hard to look at after she left. And if you are on a job and they ask to cut your pay - the question remains who else is being treated the same.

No one but those involved knows and if what happened to her set the tone for what could happen to anyone else you better believe everyone else fell
in- line. When money is involved not many people are going to side with anything but their money. Which is pretty normal for many people.

I don't know what happened, but I know this - she is extremely talented. This lady surprised me when they had her dance on the show. My God! Just thinking about that makes me smile. Really who cares! but it not your life turn upside down because of it. Will is not God. and just because the other have not said anything about him negatively means nothing.

Most of America shut their mouth and let our government SHEE all over them and seem to me like they are saying MORE SHEE please. Keep eating the GMO food. Keep believing cancer leads to your demise, diabetes can't be cured - MORE SHEE please
