I was up late working on this post last night when I discovered that my connection had been lost. I am none to pleased to log on this morning and find nothing saved but the Youtube. I’m going to have to give you the short version as I have things to do today if I am going to keep my Lent agreements.
So Janet Hubert was the first Aunt Viv on Fresh Prince of Bel Air. There was all sorts of scandal about her leaving the show. I seem to remember that she got pregnant, and that was written into the show, but problems continued and she was replaced with another actress. Not sure what happened there but there was some talk about her being difficult to work with. Will Smith never seemed to work well with her.
So no she does a Blactress FaceBook account and a Youtube Parody Show.
In this new video, Janet seems to say that she is not going to persue Kenya for money owed because of Kenya’s bad childhood and her inability to trust women. Or something.
Janet also posted this comment:
For all the actors that appeared on the Kenya Moore so called Pilot, don’t feel bad she fooled us all, and used the wonderful Winsome Sinclair to cast this mess. My advice to you all next time never sign the release that Bravo tried to get me to sign. Only sign what you are supposed to and that is what is related to the union contract. These reality shows are not governed by unions. That is why they can get away with the stuff they get away with. It is like a freak show, do not be fooled by it. They will ask you to sign your life away…don’t do it. ~Janet Hubert
I think the bottom line of all of this nonsense is this:
1) Janet may be a bit wackadoodle, but at least she is smart enough not to sign those contracts to be on a Bravo show.
2) Janet says Kenya’s production company didn’t pay the actors
3) This means that Kenya’s show was NOT picked up by Bravo. At least not yet.
Check out Janet’s Facebook page. There are some interesting clips from her apparent trial over getting pregnant while working for NBC…
So far Kenya is ignoring the entire thing.
