Keep It Trill: 15 Black TV Moms Who Played No Games
Janet Hubert – Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
If there is one thing that any real Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fan will agree with, it’s that OG Aunt Vivian did not play. Her realness, class, beauty, and effervescence was missed for years after she left the show. Aunt Vivian taught us to hold down that career, the family, a fabulous body and follow your creative hobbies. She was a true renaissance woman.
In one of her best moments in the series, Aunt Viv decides to go to a ballet class and dance again. When a few of her younger classmates decide to talk some smack, she has to set them straight.
But if there’s one thing OG Aunt Viv taught us it is this: Don’t come for me, unless I send for you. She worked her butt off and turned in a performance to “Everybody Dance Now” that slayed the entirety of that dance studio. There is always a place in our heart for OG Aunt Viv.
