Alfonso Ribeiro has proven himself to be an outspoken individual, rarely shying away from sharing his views. Earlier this week, the Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor took a moment to correct his former co-star's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, after she mentioned that she went on a date with the actor before falling for Will.  "I believe [Alfonso Ribeiro] and I went on one date. Before I was even on A Different World," Jada told her family in an episode of Red Table Talks. In response, Ribiero wrote, "Sorry Jada. Your memory is a little off. We went to lunch with your family when we both guest starred on A Different World the year before you became a regular." Capping off the exchange, Jada jokingly tweeted back, "my fault Alf... I thought it was a date."
Ribeiro, who currently hosts the television show America’s Funniest Home Videos, recently sat down with Mario Lopez and discussed a reboot of the popular 90s series. “I think it’s impossible with James Avery being gone,” Ribeiro said referring to the death of the actor who played the role of Uncle Phil. “Do we really want to see Will and Carlton in their, you know, 40s and 50s? James Avery, right, he’s actually the most important character on the show. Without him [Uncle Phil], everything that Will and Carlton did would mean nothing.”
