Show generally

Question: Does anyone know why Janet Hubert-Witten was replaced? I've heard rumours that she didn't get along with the rest of the cast, is this true?

Answer: Yes. It's very true. Janet quit at the end of the third season because she claims that Will acted horribly, bullied cast and crew on the set and got her fired for no reason. Alfonso Ribeiro however has called her "cuckoo" and stated that her claims were baseless. He also stated that she was very difficult to work with on set. Even James Avery agreed and often had to remind her that the show was called "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and not "Philip and Vivian of Bel-Air."

Chosen answer: She became pregnant in real life, which would have messed up the story line. They would have had to add a fifth kid.

There's the Rub (2) - S6-E10

Question: What exactly were Phil and Will charged with?

Answer: Most likely soliciting a prostitute. Will took Phil to a massage parlor to help with Phil's back pain, but instead of being a reputable business, it was run by prostitutes and the police raided it during a sting operation.
