The prince of Bel-Air is now the king of tell-alls.

From wanting thus far his co-star Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), to creating the choice to finish The Contemporary Prince of Bel–Air, Will Smith shares stunning secrets and techniques from his life and profession in his new memoir, Will.

The hit sitcom, starring Smith, Parsons, Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali, Daphne Reid and James Avery, premiered in 1990 and aired till 1996, once we mentioned goodbye to the beloved Banks household. In his memoir, Smith explains that there was good cause for the present to finish after six seasons. “The storylines had been changing into more and more hokey and it was troublesome to keep up the ‘Freshness,'” the actor writes in his e-book. “Anybody who has ever been on a sitcom can let you know the episode during which their present jumped the shark.”
