Second Generation Wayans
Don’t expect former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air mom Janet Hubert to invite talk show host Wendy Williams over for a girl's brunch anytime soon. The All My Children and One Life to Live alum tore Williams a new one, after watching former onscreen daughter Tatyana Ali be grilled by Williams on her self-titled talk show, about what exactly made Hubert leave the 90’s sitcom. Hubert stated:
Wendy Williams, or whatever you are supposed to be, I’m not quite sure. I’m writing you yet again, to appeal to your sense of womanhood or manhood as some suggest. Please close your mouth about things that you know nothing of.
Now, I watched your show to see dear Tatyana Ali sadly to say, fall into your trap. She even brought pictures of our days on the show from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. You know most people watch you just to see what heinous things your mouth will say compared to what an overflowing volcano will spew forth on that day. Now perhaps other black women have allowed you to berate them and continued to support you in this manner of madness and rewarding hatefulness. It seems to have become the norm and has taken over our society completely. But I, Janet Hubert, sat there and watched you tell the world that I was not a nice mother. I’m thinking to myself, the only person who has the right to say that is my child. So I sat there and watched you like some devilish sinkhole swallow up Tatyana Ali You reduced her to a child sitting their attempting to keep some semblance of dignity about her as you pried and invaded her life until you got what you wanted.
Tatyana Ali was back on daytime Tuesday, but not on CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless. The actress, who recurs as Devon's (Bryton James) galpal Roxanne on Y&R, appeared on The Wendy Williams Show to plug the season finale of her smart, funny BET sitcom Second Generation Wayans.
The Fresh Princess of Belair also fielded questions about one night stands and a possible hook-up with teen soap star-turned-rapper Drake! Watch the interview below.
Tatyana Ali swung by Bravo's Watch What Happens Live last night to chew the fat and promote her latest television project, Second Generation Wayans. Host Andy Cohen asked Ali a viewer's question wondering when she will be back in Genoa City on The Young and the Restless. Ali cracked to an amused Cohen and R&B singer T-Boz of TLC:
I'm recurring, so a couple times a month. I'm mostly in there when the black people have a party. When the black people have a party, Roxanne shows up."
