'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.

Jealous much, bitch? Who's gone on to become nearly an icon? Not you. I don't even know your name. You're a nobody. Hollywood hates you. Leave, and don't let Wills foot kick you in the ass on the way out. Loser.

Will Smith got lucky. Got a TV show which did well. Show finially got cancelled and Smith went on to have a few commercially sucessful movies but that was a quite some time ago. Will Smith hasn't done nothing since except trying to shove his kids down throats which didn't work.

I still think for some reason she may have threw herself at him or made a pass and he turned her down..he could've hit and kept it movin too, but who knows...rejection hits harder for some and its obvious that she still admires him if her feelings still linger till this day. She wanted to be who Jada is now back then($$$)...she seen his potential

Will Smith is more than likely an a**hole. He probably lives so far up his own butt he has to have a dehumidifier to stay dry. She is bitter still. But, I understand where she is coming from. She was a professional actor who had spent her whole life working for success. Smith was a teenage rapper that only got the show because of his connections to Quincy Jones. By sheer happenstance, Smith proved to be talented. I'm sure he was an ego- maniac. What big name Hollywood teenage rapper isn't? She's bitter because she couldn't swallow her pride and collect a paycheck. Is that really that bad? Our pride is all we have.

When I saw the special on Ms. Hubert, I didn't know what to think when she said that they called her, "bitter". I didn't 't pass any judgement on her. Now I can see what they mean. She is bitter, which is supported by the fact that she can't let go of what happened. Also, the fact that she has stooped to name calling, when no one has said anything negative about her, doesn't make her look too good. SHE makes it appear as though there was something in HER personality that caused the firing.

Unfortunately for her, she is a nobody and Will is a Superstar. No one will care or miss her. She needs to get over her bitterness and move on already or risk dying a nobody.
