Now this is a story all about how, Alfonso flipped frowns upside down and I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll show you how they Instagrammed cast of “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
[Hit the beat!]
In West Philadelphia, born and rai– nah, I can’t keep the rhymes going that long.
This week the cast of your favorite 90’s sitcom, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” reunited and posted a group pic to Instagram via Alfonso Ribeiro’s account.
They all look great! ?
They’ve got just about the whole crew together. Except, of course, for the incomparable James Avery, who played the beloved Uncle Phil on the show.

The Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith got in on the social media action, sharing a group selfie with the world and chiming in on missing James Avery.
Will, Ashley, Carlton, Hillary, Aunt Viv II and Jeffrey. Hm. Anyone missing? ?
It looked just like a real family reunion, and you know what happens at family reunions.
Obviously when a Latino is present, it’s a party. We dance. We eat. We dish on all the best bochinche. ?
What you may not know is that Alfonso Rebiero, the main dancer of the bunch is actually of Trinidadian descent, and is not, as many assume, Dominican.
Why Carlton look like he dropped the hottest bachata album of the 90s ? pic.twitter.com/wP3dWs4lTE

With those moves and a name like Alfonso, we all assumed he was un tiguere Cibaeño. ???
Tatyana Ali is the actual Latina of the clique. Her mom is Panamanian and Ali identifies as Afro-Latina.
Ashley’s all grown up! ? ??
But back to the point… Not everyone was all smiles about the reunion, though. In a Facebook post, Janet Hubert, the original Aunt Viv, had some choice words.
“I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribero has posted his so called reunion photo. Folks keep telling me about it. He was always the ass wipe for Will. There will never be a true reunion of the Fresh Prince. I have no interest in seeing any of these people on that kind of level.”
Apparently, the 20+ year feud she’s had with ex co-stars Smith and Ribeiro has yet to cool off. ?

Even as Aunt Viv, Janet Hubert was not playing around.
She’s been clapping back since leotard days. ?
With all this bad blood, it seems like an actual Fresh Prince TV reunion may never happen.

What a shame.
