Blog King, Mass Appeal

LOS ANGELES — “I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 and I yelled to the cabbie ‘Yo homes smell ya later.’ I looked at my kingdom. I was finally there. To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air.” Thanks to Will Smith, the cast of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” got together for a snapchat conference on Wednesday — their first onscreen reunion since the hit NBC sitcom went off the air in May 1996. The 2-part virtual series features cast members Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Daphne Maxwell Reid, Joseph Marcell and DJ Jazzy Jeff who recently tested positive for coronavirus but is expected to recover.

James Avery, who starred as Uncle Phil, died 6 years ago.

The original Aunt Viv, Janet Hubert-Whitten, was also absent.

She has a beef with Will.

Janet said he’s responsible for getting her fired.

Here’s what Will had to say: “I can say straight up that Janet Hubert wanted the show to be ‘The Aunt Viv of Bel-Air.’ She has basically gone from a quarter of a million dollars a year to nothing. She’s mad now but she’s been mad all along. She once said, ‘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 the Anti-Christ.”

As for the reunion?

Topics of convo include Tatyana’s decision to attend Harvard and the possibility of a ‘Fresh Prince’ reboot. Titled “Will From Home,” Will’s series has transmogrified into “must-see” TV. The show, which emphasizes social distancing, has drawn 15 million unique viewers in the first three episodes. Will’s guest list includes Kevin James, Tyra Banks, Johnny Knoxville and immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” ran for 6 successful seasons.

  21. Lubabalo Mgedezi

    The Uncle Phil tribute really got to me 😭 it felt like a knew him 😭😭😭

  22. The Janzen Boys

    It’s just weird how important this show still is in my memory. The Uncle Phil / Will “why doesn’t my dad love me” moment is still impossible to get through without tears. You all were exposing a deep wound in our culture there that still echoes….

  23. Celebrity Watch

    so we’re just gonna pretend that the real aunt viv isnt missing lol

  24. Ugh… James Avery🙏🏾 I enjoyed watching the reunion 😊💕

  25. This sitcom was so demeaning to young ladies. I stopped watching it probably a fourth of one season when it aired. I also stopped respecting Smith due to his character’s disrespect of females and his marriage to that hollyweird Jada. No love for a reunion👎🏾

  26. Who thinks will smith should run for president


    I miss James Avery aka Uncle Phil😢😥🥺😭

  28. Tatyana Ali never ages 😍

  43. DeVonte Berthea

    It’s crazy how one person that you don’t even know puts a great example how men should be like uncle Phil in the show I thank him for giving us that feeling what love of father should be like. Men stop treating your wife like shit be there for your kids because the kids need you like we need our mom’s we need y’all to step or continue to be a fool your choice.

  44. William Obinyan

    yo! thanks Will, this was simply wonderful to watch.

  45. Why does tatyana look like she barely aged

  46. Fresh prince was my childhood…I was Will….these were my family…..shit these were everybody’s family. R.I.P uncle Phil

  47. Hillary still hella fine! DAMN! 😭😭😭

  48. Tiffany mccloskey-glantz

    Lmao devonte berthea maybe you should take his advise and be their for your kids cause you know your 4 year old son hasn’t seen you in over 3 years and it’s not my choice you have had multiple opportunities to see him. Hell you have even forgot his last few birthdays. Wait let not forget you don’t even call him, email to ask how he’s doing you are amazing it’s sad.
