You Can Call ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ Mansion Home for a Night



Are you ready to have your life get flipped, turned upside-down? I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll tell you how you can become the prince (or princess) of a town called Bel-Air! Well, Brentwood, actually. 

Will Smith set the internet ablaze this past Sunday when he announced via Instagram that the mansion that served as his home on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” was going to be made temporarily available as an Airbnb vacation rental in honor of the 30th anniversary of the popular sitcom, which debuted on September 10th, 1990.

The Colonial-style dwelling is where, after getting into “one little fight” on a basketball court in West Philadelphia, Smith (playing a fictionalized version of himself) is sent to live with his wealthy “auntie and uncle,” Philip (James Avery) and Vivian Banks (initially played by Janet Hubert, later by Daphne Reid).

Spoiler! The Banks residence is not actually located in Bel-Air but on a tony street in Brentwood, about five miles west of the upscale neighborhood that lent the NBC series its name.

For years, the Banks mansion went misidentified by tour companies, websites, and L.A. guidebooks alike, all of which claimed an actual Bel-Air property at 417 Amapola Lane was featured on the show. Knowing the information was incorrect — other than being Colonial, the Amapola pad bears little resemblance to the Banks residence — a “Fresh Prince” fan reached out to me in 2008, hoping I could put the mystery to rest, a challenge I readily accepted. Employing some good old-fashioned armchair detective work, I wound up finding the correct mansion listed on an online filming location database and a contact there then supplied me with the address, 251 North Bristol Avenue. Camera in hand, I ran out to see it shortly thereafter.

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel Season 4: Release Date, Plot, Cast And Everything You Should Know!!




– Advertisement –

The premiere of the 4th season of this American comedy series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is awaited with great interest by thousands of fans worldwide. Here is what we know so far about the awaited The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is put in Manhattan in the 1950s and 1960s and follows the life span of Miriam”Midge” Maisel ( Rachel Brosnahan ). This girl was the life she always wanted: an ideal husband, two children, and a great apartment in the Upper West Side. But she sees her perfect life take a turn when she finds a curious talent for comedy and exchanges her entire life for the universe of stand-up performances.

The third season of this series finished with Midge’s career failing when Shai Baldwin abruptly stopped her performances to support her world tour.

When Will It Going To Release

Therefore, the product’s deferral also affects the arrival of the fourth run of this drama show. So we can’t hope to get it soon. We will need to wait for the fourth run. The release date is also not a place for the fourth run of this series. Sources are saying that we may anticipate that it launches for the fans in 2021.


But with the upcoming fourth season, the same much-loved cast since the previous seasons is forecast to return. Including:

Michael Zegen as Joel Maisel

Marin Hinkle as Rose Weissman

Tony Shalhoub as Abraham “Abe” Weissman

Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam “Midge” Maisel

Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson

What’s The Story Details

Ms. Maisel is a fantastic show that depends upon a lady who chooses to be a comedian. The wife has everything she needs throughout everyday life, and the story changes once the husband leaves. The series finds several known moments and has given a great deal for the series.

The story rotates around Mrs. Maisel, a set from the 1950s. Rachel Brosnahan assumes the part of Mary Maisel and can be portrayed as a housewife. Likewise, it would help if you researched after a stand-up business. Last season, we saw Maisel on a world tour, also in the upcoming season, her occupation in parody could start.

Basketball’s ‘Renaissance Man’ Jalen Rose talks suiting up for NBA Finals




The NBA Finals are nearly here, and I’ve been covering them since 2002 when the LA Lakers swept the NJ Nets, first for BET and then Fox and now ESPN. The networks change, but one thing stays the same: Every year I come up with a unique signature look, whether it be a slick silhouette, cut or a blingy accessory. I’ve done double-breasted suits, Cartier frames and a “Godfather”-style red rose in my lapel to name a few. My clothes have to be just as flamboyant as my analysis.

I grew up poor, but I grew up in Detroit, where dressing up was a way of life. We like to put a little extra sauce on things, and get loud with our clothes. I know my style isn’t going to be for everybody, and that’s OK. And that’s a credo I have always lived by. I love to be fearless, even if I do have a misstep or two — that comes with the territory of being a tastemaker.

For me, fashion became a companion to what I did on the court and in the studio. I’ve always equated nice clothes with a sense of pride and a tangible symbol of success.

In 1991, when I burst on the scene with a norms shattering crew called the Fab Five, I was all about being punk rock rebellious but through a hip-hop filter. While everyone else was wearing shorter shorts, we all wore ours long and baggy. We sported black socks, black sneakers and bald heads. It was an attitude-driven aesthetic that changed college basketball forever. When I was drafted, I went full on Motor City bold. In a sea of tan- and earth-toned suits, I stood out in a red pinstripe number and red gator shoes. Why red? Well, I thought I was going to be taken by the LA Clippers, and I wanted to represent their colors. I’m sure the Denver Nuggets really appreciated my suit when they selected me.

And before it became normal for NBA players to work with stylists, I signed on as the first client of a woman who later gave the league a style makeover. Rachel Johnson — who turned LeBron James, Amar’e Stoudemire, Chris Paul and Victor Cruz into bona fide fashionistos — helped me embrace a more gentlemanly, refined look, while the rest of the league was wearing baggy duds before the dress code was instituted in 2005.

For me, fashion became a companion to what I did on the court and in the studio. I’ve always equated nice clothes with a sense of pride and a tangible symbol of success. More importantly, it helps to forge an identity. When you become an athlete, people try to minimize everything you do and call you a winner or a loser based only on how many championships you’ve won, which means there are only a handful of successful people, like Jordan, Magic and the late great Kobe. I never won a ring, but blazing my own sartorial path has been a championship of sorts. Looking sharp makes me want to work harder and reminds me of all of the times as a child, that people called me skinny and bumpy and I was wearing patches in my pants and holes in my shoes that were too small.

As a kid, I always admired highly fashionable people, like Don Cornelius and Berry Gordy. But I learned the merits of being crisp from a special lady. My “Grammie,” Mary Belle Hicks, who passed away last week at 103 was the matriarch of the family and kept everyone in line. She was an angel. Grammie worked in health care, fed us V8 in the morning and gave us all a whooping. She was also immaculate. She always wore big hats to church, like the colorful ones that you see at the Kentucky Derby. One very special thing she did was create scrapbooks for me. She clipped every newspaper article and taped every TV segment that mentioned my name since I was in the fifth grade. She was at the draft with me. She told me I was going to make it. She gave me wings.

With Grammie in mind, I’m still kicking around a sartorial concept for this year’s NBA Finals that will get people talking or maybe even shaking their heads. I’ll be deliberating on that and more in this Renaissance Man column. I’ll be sharing style tips, dispatches from the sidelines, anecdotes, food experiences, culture and music, and bringing you into my unique world — with a little Detroit flair, of course.

Detroit native Jalen Rose is a member of the University of Michigan’s iconoclastic Fab Five, who shook up the college hoops world in the early ’90s. He played 13 seasons in the NBA, before transitioning into a media personality. Rose is currently an analyst for “NBA Countdown” and “Get Up,” and co-host of “Jalen & Jacoby.” He executive produced “The Fab Five” for ESPN’s “30 for 30” series, is the author of the best-selling book, “Got To Give the People What They Want,” a fashion tastemaker, and co-founded the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy, a public charter school in his hometown.

Alaskan Bush People’s Bear Brown Celebrates Getting to Hold Son for the 1st Time: ‘Could Not Be More Excited’




At last! Alaskan Bush People star Bear Brown announced he is finally going to meet his son, River, and get to hold his baby boy for the first time. The Discovery Channel alum posted a video sharing the big news on Wednesday, September 23, sharing how over the moon he is to spend time with his bundle of joy. 

“Hey everybody! Guess where I am going right now,” Bear, 33, shared, revealing he was “on his way” to see his new addition and “could not be more excited.”

“This is going to be so, so, so awesome,” the TV personality added. “I cannot wait. Thank you everybody for sticking with me and everything!”

Bear and his former fiancée, Raiven Adams, welcomed their first child together back in March. The exes called off their engagement in September 2019 and have since been trying to put their drama behind them for the sake of their little one. 

Last month, the reality star shared how thrilled he was to see his mini-me in an exclusive statement with In Touch, revealing the coronavirus outbreak was one of the unforeseen circumstances keeping them apart. “With the virus that’s been going around, [I] haven’t felt like it would have been safe to visit River,” Bear said in August. “But now they seem to have [enough tests] to see if you’re infected, so I won’t have to worry about infecting River or my parents when I return home!”

Afterward, Raiven said her ex Bear “has always been welcome to see” River in her own exclusive statement to In Touch

“He is acting like he can’t see him, which is very strange … I’ve even offered to bring our son to him,” she added. “Hopefully when he meets him, it will change his view and help him focus on our son. Custody should always be about healthy and safe ways to have the best relationship with both parents.”

Raiven and their son reportedly relocated to Texas following their split and he shared an update just last week, confirming she was bringing River for a visit.

Bear’s family recently suffered a “devastating loss” when a fire swept through their mountain and Washington home in August. Luckily, his brood followed-up with a video message, confirming their family was safe and staying positive amid repairs. 

His meetup with River will likely be another silver lining!
