A special early screening of the ‘Fresh Prince Reunion’ special aired last night on HBO Max, and many fans were shocked to see the original Aunt Viv.

Following the airing of the show, Janet Hubert was trending after she revealed how her life changed after she was replaced as Aunt Viv.  She expressed to Will that being called “difficult” as a Black woman in Hollywood is the “kiss of death.” She and Will both expressed apologizes, and shared that the two haven’t spoken or seen each other in close to 27 years.

Following the reunion special, Janet expressed via Twitter, “thank you all for the love…the understanding especially you Will. It was amazing seeing you all again. Be blessed, this is my story all about how…healing happened.”
