Aunt Viv GOES OFF!
Remember that “reunion” pic of the cast of “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”? There’s a really good reason the “original” Aunt Viv wasn’t in the pic…she (still) thinks Will Smith is an ego maniac AND an A******. Janet Hubert, who played the original Aunt Vivian on “Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” before she was replaced by Daphne Maxwell Reid, was fired from the show over 15 years ago. And she is STILL BITTER about. She says he has big ego, maniac, and has a “need” to have his butt-kissed by his minions.
TMZ reports that she recently told an interviewer, “There will never be a reunion … as I will never do anything with an a**hole like Will Smith. He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up. This constant reunion thing will never ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology, which he doesn’t know the word.” When asked about the situation, Will spoke said, “She always thought– ‘I’ve been in the business for 10 years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.’ No matter what, to her I’m just the AntiChrist.”
Heavy D’s death attributed to a Blood Clot
The death of Heavy D has been attributed to a “…pulmonary embolism caused by deep leg vein thrombosis.” And unfortunately, the long flight back to L.A. from a Michael Jackson memorial concert in Wales may have been what set it off. A pulmonary embolism, a blockage of one or more arteries in the lungs, is most often caused by blood clots that travel to one one place from other body parts….in Heavy D’s case it was from his legs. And deep leg vein thrombosis is often associated with long plane flights (the clot forms due to prolonged immobility.) Officials from the L.A. County Coroner’s Office also reveal that Heavy suffered from heart disease and it could have been a contributing factor in his death.
Pilar Sanders say’s Deion has no “Stones”
Deion Sanders’ wife says the former NFL star didn’t have the stones to personally tell her he wanted a divorce … shockingly, she learned about the move by checking TMZ.com.
Pilar Sanders’ lawyer, Larry Friedman, tells us she was “heartbroken and surprised when [she] read … that Deion announced his decision, on his own, to end their marriage.”
“Pilar’s sole focus and top priority for the last 12.5 years has been her marriage and children. Based on recent discoveries, [Pilar] now realizes that Deion did not view their family the same way.” Friedman tells us Pilar has NOT negotiated a divorce settlement with Deion — but says she fully intends to protect herself and her children.
Translation — You’re TAKING it, buddy! Still, Pilar says she isn’t 100% convinced the marriage is dead … chalking up Deion’s recent behavior to a “temporary lapse of judgment”… and insisting she’s “confident that he will come to his senses and return to his family as he has in the past.”
Grand Opening/Grand Closing
Sinead O’Connor announced Monday that after 18 days the newlywed is getting divorced. O’Connor wrote on her personal blog that she and Herridge “part amicably,” emphasizing that she’s ending their brief relationship because she loves him. “He has been terribly unhappy and I have therefore ended the marriage,” she explained. “I can’t take anyone’s life. And a woman wants to be a joy to her husband. So.. U love someone? Set them free.” This is the fourth failed marriage for O’Connor, who was previously married to music producer John Reynolds, journalist Nicholas Sommerlad and guitarist Steve Cooney. O’Connor and Herridge met online, when Herridge responded to the singer’s plea on her website for a “sweet, sex-starved man.” O’Connor’s brief union makes Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage look like a life time.
