For almost a year, there have been rumors that the cast of Friends was going to shoot an unscripted reunion special for HBO Max. It has been delayed due to greed and COVID-19, and they have yet to set a date

Last week, the streaming service announced that the cast of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air would reunite for their own unscripted special, and over the last two days, they have been filming it. Take that Friends.

Yesterday, it was just Will Smith interviewing the original Aunt Viv. Today, on the sitcom’s 30th anniversary, Smith told Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid, Alfonso Ribeiro, and DJ Jazzy Jeff that he spoke with Janet Hubert for the first time in 27 years. Then they got down to business and caught us up with everything they have been up to since their show went off the air in 1996.

The reunion, that will air begin streaming around Thanksgiving, will also feature special surprise guests, music, dancing, and laughs.

How excited are you to see them together again? Want to see Smith with Hubert, then click here!

Was Alfonso Ribeiro offered Tom Bergeron’s DWTS’s job?
July 24th, 2020 under Alfonso Ribeiro, Dancing with the Stars. [ Comments: none ]


Let’s be honest, when we heard that Tom Bergeron was wrongly fired from Dancing with the Stars recently, we all wondered if they offered the job to Alfonso Ribeiro before Tyra Banks. We are not the only ones who want to know.

Us Weekly asked him all about it. He told the magazine, “If the circumstances were very different, that might’ve been something that I might’ve been interested in doing. Then he elaborated, “I certainly would not have been interested in Tom being fired and me being hired to do it. I mean, I already took over for him on AFV. I can’t do all of his gigs. And at the end of the day, the AFV was not a firing. It was him leaving, and that’s what made it possible for me to go. I never want to take someone’s job like that. Yes. That has nothing to do with whoever you’re hiring, of course, but because I’m so close to him, it just wouldn’t have felt right to do if they approached me.”

I am glad he was not approached and accepted the job. As much as I like my Junior High School alum, I would have been upset with him if he did. As would the fans of the show, and he is a fan favortie.

Is he still a fan of the show, and does he plan to watch? It will be hard to watch it without the backbones of the show, Bergeron and Erin Andrews, but he will still tune in for his other friends like the judges and professional dancers.

Does he have any advice for Banks? He says she needs to be the traffic cop guiding the show in the proper direction, and not make it about herself. At the end of the day, it is not about her. Who thinks she will be able to do that? Everything she does is always about her; why would this be any different. That is why a majority of the people think she is the wrong person for the job.

Is it too late for them to give the job back to Bergeron?

Alfonso Ribeiro proves he can do other dances besides the Carlton

When you think of Alfonso Ribeiro, you think the only dance he can do is the Carlton. Since I went to the same junior high school as him, I know he can also do tap and breakdance. Others might think he can also do ballroom because he won Dancing with the Stars.

Yet, even though we all know that, we still only associate him with his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air dance.

Yesterday, he proved once again he is not a one-dance wonder. He mirrored one of Twitch and Alison Holker’s TikTok dances. Proving that DWTS dancers are just as good as the ones who were on So You Think You Can Dance.

Before Alfonso Ribeiro was known for the Carlton, he was the Tap Dance Kid. Boy, could he dance when he was 12 years old back in 1984

Alfonso Ribeiro is dancing with Witney Carson on Catch 21
October 14th, 2019 under Alfonso Ribeiro, Game Show Network. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 2014, Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson danced their way to a mirrorball trophy on Dancing with the Stars. Five years later, he is back hosting a game show on GSN with his dance partner by his side.

Today at 6p, Carlton is once again holding the cards on Catch 21 and his partner is dealing them on the easy but challenging game show. The game starts off with the three players each being dealt a card. Then they have to answer a question and whoever gets it right gets to draw a card. If that second card gets them close to BlackJack, then they can freeze. If not, they can take that card and hope to get another answer correct. However, if they don’t like it, they can pass it on to one of the other two players. Whoever gets the closest to 21 without going over wins the round.

This goes on for two rounds. For the third round, only the two higher scorers move on. Then the winner of the third round goes on to the finals. In that round, they have to play three decks. They need to get all three decks to the magic number of 21. If they get one deck, they $2,500. If they bust then they go home with the $1,000 they won earlier in the game. If they get 21 again without busting, then they go home $5,000. Finally, if they get three BlackJacks without busting, then they win $25,000. Not too shabby! Better odds than Vegas!

While the questions they ask are pretty easy to answer, BJ is a game of luck. You never know what card you are going to be handed. You can get a King and an Ace, or you can get a 5, a 3, a 4 and a 10. It is going with your gut and sometimes it gets it wrong. Because of that uncertainty, Catch 21 is an exciting show to watch weekdays at 6p.

This is not Ribeiro’s first time at this table. He hosted the game show from 2008-2011. While I did not watch it then, I will watch it now because of the chemistry he has with his Partner in Crime. Ribeiro and Carson are such a good pair together, it is not a surprise that they won DWTS!

I should be honest, I do really like the show. However, I should tell you that I went to the same JHS as him and I support my old alumi. Well, minus two because of their corrupt past and present, but that is a whole other post.

Anyways, watch Catch 21 or bust!
