Alfonso Ribeiro had to choose between Fresh Prince and Different World?
November 2nd, 2018 under Alfonso Ribeiro, Larry King. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 1990, Alfonso Ribeiro guest starred on A Different World and they really liked him. So much so, they wanted to bring him back on the show.

Around that same time, he auditioned for a show with some guy who went by Fresh Prince and got that part. Now he had to choose which sitcom he wanted to be on. A blessing and a curse for any actor.

Was the decision hard for him? He told Larry King, “I made the decision to go with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cause I really believed there was something special about him and the show.”

It was a huge risk to go with a barely known rapper over an established show, but I think we can all agree he made the right choice. Imagine a different world without the Carlton dance? Let’s not because it is too sad to think about.

UPDATE: Alfonso Ribeiro revealed that he and his wife, Angela, are expecting baby #3, his fourth, next year.

Alfonso Ribeiro quashes our Fresh Price revival hopes
October 9th, 2017 under Alfonso Ribeiro, Revivals-Reboots. [ Comments: none ]


If you have been hoping that Fresh Prince of Bel-Air would join shows like Full House, Will & Grace and The X-Files and get a revival series, then I have some really bad news for you. Alfonso Ribeiro told ABC News, it is never going to happen. Then he elaborated, “I can never say never, but I feel really confident in the fact that we would never do it.”

Then Carlton explained why, “When James Avery passed [in 2013], it was basically the last possibility of the show coming back in any form.” He says that Will Smith feels the same way about playing the role that made him a star, but added, “I don’t know whether other people would want to do it. But, I just feel like, you know, the past is the past. We have to kind of just let it go.”

I have to wonder if he does not want to do it because he does not want to do the Carlton dance every week. I mean after all, the Tap Dance Kid did win Dancing with Stars and can do more than just dance like that.

Are you sad Homes that we won’t we will not be going to Bel-Air again?

Now this is a story all about how the cast of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunited
March 28th, 2017 under Alfonso Ribeiro, Will Smith. [ Comments: none ]


Get ready to do the Carlton because the cast of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air got together to do lunch over the weekend. Alfonso Ribeiro did not say why Tatyana Ali (Ashley), Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Will Smith (Will), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Vivian) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey) all got together again to shoot the breeze almost 21 years after the sitcom ended, but he did say that he wishes his TV father James Avery was still around to complete the reunion.

Since we don’t know why they reunited, let’s assume it is because they want to do a television reunion. Smith could totally use it to help his career. Plus, we want to see them all together again on the small screen just like we love seeing the Full House and Gilmore Girls casts reviving their shows for Netflix. Let’s petition for it to happen because they look as close as ever!

Alfonso Ribeiro can dance more than The Carlton
March 20th, 2017 under Alfonso Ribeiro, Charo, Dancing with the Stars. [ Comments: none ]

A post shared by Charo (@officialcharo) on


For decades, we always thought that Alfonso Ribeiro didn’t have any rhythm because of the dance he did on Fresh Prince of Bel Air, but turns out he can charm the pants off of a girl with the way he moves his hips.

Yes, he won Dancing with the Stars, but that only shows off choreographed moves. Yes, he was The Tap Dance Kid, but that shows off his feet. Yes, he did break dancing with Michael Jackson, but that is a stiffer type of movement than what he just did with Charo. Who knew he could move his torso like that? I can’t stop looking at his silver spoon area. Seriously, aren’t you impressed?

Now, when it comes to Charo and him, I hope he rubbed his mirrorball trophy on her for good luck because I want to see her Cuchi Cuchi win this season of the ABC dancing reality competition show that starts tonight!

People ask Alfonso Ribeiro to do The Carlton Dance where?
November 28th, 2016 under Alfonso Ribeiro, Harry Connick Jr. [ Comments: none ]


Let’s be honest with each other. If you saw Alfonso Ribeiro, then you would probably ask him to do The Carlton Dance for you. There is a time and a place to ask him to do that and the urinal is not one of those places. That’s right, he told Harry Connick that men will ask him to do that when he is taking a leak. Depending on the guy’s size who is asking him, he can’t exactly Tap Dance Kid his way out of it.
The morale of the story, is wait to make him dance for you until after he has zipped up, washed his hands and dryed them off. You definitely don’t want to ask him for an autograph until he is done with all of that. At least I wouldn’t.
