“Let it go, honey. We have it.”
Last week, HBO Max aired one Fresh prince of Bel-Air reunion especially in honor of the show’s 30th anniversary.
There were many good moments, but the one everyone talked about was the cast, especially Will Smith, who reunites with Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Viv in the show for the first three seasons.
After clearing the air, the two shared a hug, and Janet joined the rest of the cast, whom she had not seen in 27 years.
Someone who did not hold on to this part of the reunion? Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton on the show.
Alfonso and Janet have been at odds over the years, most recently over this post on Alfonso’s Instagram from 2017.
Many people noticed his absence and assumed that the two had not been able to get past their disagreements.
But good news! According to both actors, Alfonso’s absence had nothing to do with any prolonged tension between the two. It was a simple matter of planning.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Alfonso said he could not be on stage that day because he had to film America’s funniest home videos, which he has hosted.
Janet also responded directly to a fan suggesting that Alfonso’s absence was deliberate.
So there you have it! Where once there was bad blood, there is now water under the bridge and we can all count this reunion as one of the good things that happened this year.
