Will Smith reunites with "Fresh Prince" cast, Jennifer Hudson turned down Precious, Ne-Yo gives back and more!
‘Fresh Prince’ reunion
The holidays are perfect for family reunions, and the Banks family of “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” recently got together.
“There’s nothing like spending Holidays with fam!” Will Smith wrote alongside the image.
Will and his cast members, Tatyana Ali, Alfonso Ribeiro, Karyn Parsons and James Avery, were all present at a charity event when the epic moment immortalized.
Jennifer Hudson rejected ‘Precious’
Gabby Sidibe just might have Jennifer Hudson to thank for her acting career.
In her book, I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down, the Oscar winner reveals that she was offered the role of Precious, but turned it down, in part, for health reasons.
“I had done that with Effie…and as much as I was moved by this film, I wanted to try a role that had nothing whatsoever to do with my weight,” she writes.

Ne-Yo gives back
In the spirit of the holiday season, Ne-Yo recently visited needy teenagers in Florida to spread some cheer.
The singer and his mother spent six days visiting six cities and bringing presents to more than 3,000 kids.
“I grew up pretty much like you all,” Ne-Yo said. “We didn’t have a lot of anything … there was no silver spoon in my mouth."
