This sitcom feud just got refreshed.


The day after a photo emerged of the cast of “The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air”reuniting at the beach, one left-out actress lashed out big-time.


Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Vivian for three seasons before tensions led to her departure, wrote a scathing message Tuesday on Facebook in which she called Carlton Banks actor Alfonso Ribeiro a “media hoe” and an “ass wipe” for star Will Smith. She also pledged to up her efforts to pitch a memoir about the “behind the scenes story” of the show.


Here’s a screenshot of a portion of the post:



There is no love lost between Hubert and Smith and Co. She was replaced on “French Prince” by Daphne Maxwell Reid in 1993. Reid appeared in this week’s viral picture of the beaming cast.



Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.

A post shared by Alfonso Ribeiro (@therealalfonsoribeiro) on Mar 27, 2017 at 5:27pm PDT




Smith told an Atlanta radio station in 1993 that Hubert “wanted the show to be ‘The Aunt Viv of Bel-Air Show’because I know she is going to dog me in the press.”


The snipes have erupted from time to time over the years. In 2016, Hubert even slammed Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, for urging a boycott of the Oscars to protest the lack of nominations for people of color.

Conan Dissects Donald Trump’s Habit Of Taking Credit Where It Isn’t Due



Conan O’Brien on Wednesday gleefully spoofed how PresidentDonald Trump has hogged credit for stuff “he had nothing to do with.”


As a jumping-off point, the talk show host usedTrump’s real tweeton Tuesday suggesting he laid the groundwork for Ford’s $1.2 billion investment in three Michigan plants, even though Ford had the plan in the works since 2015.


But that was small potatoes. The commander-in-chief has apparently been behind some other truly huge moments, like the start of spring. Don’t try to tell him otherwise.

Trevor Noah: ‘Trump May Destroy The World, But God Damn He’s Cute’



Trevor Noah has been one of Donald Trump’s harshest critics, but it seems he can’t help but have a soft spot for the president.


On Wednesday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” Noah spoke about Trump’s promise to save the U.S. coal industryas well as his campaign-style rallies in swing states where it is big.


While airing footage of a rally in West Virginia, where Trump wore a hard hat and sort of swung his body to the right in a macho golf swing sort of way, Noah couldn’t help but join in.

At that point, Noah said, ‘Trump may destroy the world, but, god damn, he’s cute.


He then pointed to Trump’s recent photo op in a Mack truck.

Moments like these reminded Noah that Trump really enjoys being president, he just doesn’t like the work.


“You realize, that’s all Trump ever wanted was to play president,” Noah said. “We should have just given him a Fisher-Price set.”

Twitter Hilariously Reacts To Trump’s Bad Susan B. Anthony Joke

We can’t Susan B-lieve how poorly this joke went.


On Wednesday, President Donald Trump hosted a panel discussion on women’s empowerment at the White House, during which he decided to drop some knowledge on the ladies. He name-checked a few noteworthy women in U.S. history like Abigail Adams, Harriet Tubman and Susan B. Anthony.



#Trump is now listing women he’s pretty sure did good stuff. Abigail Adams, Susan B Anthony, Harriet Tubman so far.

— snarke (@snarke) March 29, 2017


After spouting off some names, he had a question for the room full of women.


“Have you heard of Susan B. Anthony?” he quipped. “I’m shocked that you’ve heard of her.”

— Brianna Sacks (@bri_sacks) March 29, 2017


He then went on to say that Anthony dreamed of “an America where women themselves, as she said, helped to make laws and elect the lawmakers. And that’s what’s happening more and more.”


He then added, “Tough competition out there, I wanna tell you!”


Uh,OK. What?


Not long after Trump made his attempt at Susan B. Anthony-based humor, her name began to trend on Twitter. And people had some feelings.


Here are some of the best responses:



please
*cocks head to side*
*unhinges jaw to reveal a vast cavern*
do explain more about Susan B. Anthony

— Alexandra Petri (@petridishes) March 29, 2017



In these troubling times, thing that keeps me going is hearing about amazing work Susan B. Anthony & Frederick Douglass are doing.

— Cliff Schecter (@cliffschecter) March 29, 2017



@ChelseaClinton @AllLeftNews Asking them about Susan B Anthony is like asking a basketball camp if they've heard of Michael Jordan.

@thehill Translation: I just heard of Susan B Anthony for the first time. But she was terrific. Believe me.

Susan B. Anthony worked for equal rights.

This Comparison Of Donald Trump And ‘Sesame Street’ Is Wonderful

As you may have heard, Donald Trump wants to cut funding to the National Endowment for the Arts and the Corporation For Public Broadcasting. While “Sesame Street” is not directly funded by these organizations, the cuts could eliminate the local PBS stations that air the beloved children’s show.


But why would Donald Trump want to get rid of “Sesame Street”? The answer: because it’s his complete opposite.


Dylan Marron from Seriously TV gives us a fantastic side-by-side comparison of Donald Trump and “Sesame Street,” which shows just how diametrically opposed the two are, and, really, have always been.

Watch Billy Eichner Ambush Muppets In ‘Billy On The Sesame Street’



No street is safe from Billy Eichner’s game show antics, not even “Sesame Street.”


The comedian brought“Billy on the Street,”the game show in which he surprises pedestrians and asks them questions (usually with help from a fellow celebrity), to “Sesame Street” to promote kindness and compassion. As he and Cookie Monster questioned the residents about the show’s theme song and their favorite numbers, Eichner kept his signature energy and yelling, but ditched the swearing (it is “Sesame Street,” after all).


After the show posted the segment on its YouTube channel, the comedian tweeted that being a part of it was the “best day” of his life.



Here it is...it's BILLY ON THE SESAME STREET!!! I went to @sesamestreet with COOKIE MONSTER!!! Best day of my life. https://t.co/DBfqVIiJ0v

— billy eichner (@billyeichner) March 29, 2017


Oh, and he took a pretty epic selfie.

Eichner clearly had quite the day on “Sesame Street.”
