Bummed that Janet Hubert — the original Aunt Viv — wasn't at last week's Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion? Well, don't count on seeing her at any future ones either. The actress tells TMZ that she's still mad at NBC and Will Smith over her firing 18 years ago.Daphne Maxwell Reid following the third season in 1993. According to Hubert, NBC tried to reduce her episode count and slash her salary in half, and then let her go when she refused the terms — a move she believes Smith was behind. Smith has denied Hubert's claims and told an Atlanta radio station at the time that Hubert's bad attitude led to her dismissal. Hubert was pregnant during the third season and admitted to being "moody" at work, but said she was not part of the tension on set.
