Parents just don’t Understand

The original Aunt Viv, is writing a tell-all book about the time she spent on the TV show “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”.   It seems she says that Will Smith couldn’t handle any one out-shining him on the show.    Actors who were better than him or funnier than him either got fired or weren’t hired.     It sounds to me like sour grapes, we all know that she got fired off the show for some reason.   I don’t think the reason has ever been confirmed but one of the rumoured ones was because she clashed with Will.    Now I am not saying he wasn’t at fault here but he was a young actor, hell he wasn’t truly considered an actor yet.     I don’t blame him, I do find it funny that she faded away and nobody knows her real name.     Shows what her celebrity status is.    I guess this book could make her more relevant but I am unsure.    In the end, I think it is sad because I think she was leaps and bounds the better Aunt Viv of the two.    She seemed smarter, more intelligent and a classy woman not like the other one.    If only they could have tried harder to work together, the show could have been much better.   

Note: The book will be released in 2010.

    Unless Bill Cosby is involved, black actors don’t get smart comedic roles on TV.

    Really? I think Chi does pretty well with his roles.

      Who is Chi?

        If you don’t know good African American actors then I can understand why you would have that assumption with your Cosby comment. Chi McBride, I don’t know what you want me to say about him.

    Sounds like she’s just trying to ride the Will Smith comet tail. The show was ABOUT the “fresh prince of bel-air” so why she thinks someone else was supposed to “outshine” him is beyond me. I’m with you – sour grapes.

    The driver’s ed guy from Con Air???
    Dude, ain’t nothing worth watching in Con Air. Nuthin’.

    • Bob Says:

      There was no driver’s ed guy in Con Air. If you are going to confuse horrible Cage performances at least get it right (Gone in 60 Seconds) and the thing is, he has grown a lot since that role.

    COn Air, Gone in 60 Seconds, gee, how did I get those two mixed up???
