Will Smith Trashed by "Fresh Prince" Co-Star

Posted: June 22nd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Will Smith Trashed by "Fresh Prince" Co-StarSubmit Comment
Actress Janet Hubert appeared on the Will Smith sitcom "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" as Aunt Vivian until being fired in 1993 and replaced by actress Daphne Maxwell Reid. Now, Hubert has written a memoir, "Perfection is No a Sitcom Mom," in which she lashes out at Smith and accuses him of sabotaging her and other actors who worked on the NBC comedy.

She writes that it was very difficult to work with Will and that he would fire anyone who would upstage him. "Smith had people around him who made sure no one outshone him," she writes. "I was happy to see Don Cheadle become the quality actor that he is, and often wondered how he made it past one episode, as Hilary's boyfriend, being such a fierce actor."

She adds that Will controlled the publicity appearances that the cast could do. "No one could be on 'The Tonight Show,' that first season, except Will. And I mean no one."

Hubert also recalls her termination and when her agent called her to tell her that she was recast. That dismissal reportedly came after the network tried to cut back her screen time, reduce her paycheck and prevent her from guesting on any other shows.

If someone to date hasn't filled this princess in that Hollywood is about as greasy, dirty and backstabbing a business out there as any other, they should.

This is completely ridiculous. Will Smith is probably the least person that would do this, I mean I don't know him personally but he treats his fans and everyone so well. I think she is just pissed because she got fired.

Bullsh*t. the actor that played the father and will's unlce in the tv show was actually the big shot. Will was a newbie when he did this. And his 1st film was 6 degrees in seperation, which was really and surprisingly good. But no way shape or form i would believe this entirely. maybe some of it is true, but come the f*ck one. she is just pissed cuz no one wanted her tired old ass any more. its hollywood lady and im sure Will didnot have as much pull as he has now.

Janet Hubert is an old hag who is desperate for attention. I feel sorry for her because that vagina of hers hasn't seen any action in years.

even if will made sure no one outshone him, who f*cking cares....lots of people do that at that age....when you're getting famous getting more, you don't want people to start thinking negatively of you

@lostwarrior - I too seem to remember it was the Dad on that show calling all the shots. Will was a newbie, and just laid under the radar. Clearly, this hag is just cranky because she just found out she's carrying a 20 year old rotting fetus belonging to Will Smith she got when they filmed an episode called: "Prince LUVS his Auntie... A LOT!" and it's too far gone and too much time has passed for her to make a claim for some of his $'s... clearly.

The two never got along anyway, and she was fired for violating her contract. More than likely, what happened was the old bitch violated her contract and couldn't work with Smith. She couldn't compete and the show valued Will Smith FAR FAR more than her, and that ate her up. He was young and hip and funny, she was none of those. He was a handsome man, she was an ugly one. And that killed her. The show said "hey we can cut this troublemaking bitch loose, no problem, but Smith IS the show, and if we have to choose, it's her that gets sh*tcanned". No surprise. And you don't f*ck with the star, period. You don't piss off the show's money flow. And if she was ticking Smith off, who else was she fighting with? The producers? Far from the victim she claims, she's probably the one that caused all the problems.

Wait a minute she spelled her book title wrong- "Perfection is No a Sitcom Mom"...oh wait.. HA- I get it so very clever....Wow there's one person that hates Will Smith!?!?.. Maybe you are a bit bitter because you got fired?? The new mom was hotter- and no one missed her. Here's a couple seasons of the DVD's dear - chill out

ummm Duh. The entire show was centered around him. His character was the title for God's sake. Sending you out to promote it would be like sending the Rubbles to promote the Flintstones without Fred....it makes no sense. Like walking into a George Romero convention and the only person there to sign autographs is Zombie #2 from Dawn of the Dead.

Blah blah blah. I didn't even no if she was still alive. Will should go Hanc*ck on he ass. Just one of his films in the last decade has made more money than this bitch will ever make. Stop crying.
