Janet Hubert


  1. Daphne Reid, Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, TV, 1993-1996.     Will Smith is on (2016) record as saying: “Both of the Aunt Vivs were really, really fantastic.”  He did not, apparently, say that in 1993, when according to his first Aunt Viv (Janet Hubert-Whiten as she was then billed) was dumped at the end of the  third season because, she said, Smith had some sort of vendetta against her. He said she was difficult to work with. “She’s mad now, but she’s been mad all along.” The name-calling went on as she worked her way up to  41 screen roies by 2019, including soap time on One Life to Live and General Hospital.  Daphne Reid (as she isnow billed) was the sassy aunt for 74 episodes, one more than Hubert.
