Tale as old as time!

When cast members of an old, beloved television show are seen together, the rumor mill immediately starts turning.

That’s what happened when Alfonso Ribeiro posted a photo on Instagram in March with his former "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" castmates, noting that it wasn’t complete without the late James Avery.


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

But when "Carlton" himself visited our show, he set the record straight about how that photo came about!

"Karyn Parsons [who played Hilary Banks] has a great charity that she runs, called Sweet Blackberry," he explains. "And someone had bought a lunch with the ‘Fresh Prince’ cast."

Amazing! We can only imagine how much money that raised.

And while Alfonso understands that a photo like this may get fans excited and hopeful for an official reunion, one doesn't seem to be on the horizon.

"No, we’re just friends!" he insists. "We get together."

Well, thank goodness for re-runs!
