Aunt Vivian on Fresh Prince of Bel Air


The Fresh Prince was a beloved show, so when a character changes after three seasons, we're going to notice. That's what happened when Janet Hubert-Whitten was replaced by Daphne Maxwell Reid. There have been a number of rumors about what happened and various cast members have spoken out about it. Some say that they cannot discuss what happened, others allude to it, but the statements make us believe Whitten was difficult to work with or broke a rule in her contract.
