Alfonso Ribiero, the actor who played the uptight Carlton Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, got married this weekend.
The actor tied the knot with fiancee Angela Unkrich in California on Saturday, People reported.
This is the second marriage for Alfonso Ribiero, who was a 9-year-old daughter with ex-wife Robin Stapler. He and his 31-year-old wife had a short engagement, as he popped the question in July.
Ribiero was a child star in the 1980s, dancing in a Pepsi commercial with Michael Jackson and later playing the sidekick to Rick Schroder on the sitcom Silver Spoons. He graduated to Fresh Prince in the early 90s, playing the dorky cousin to Will Smith’s lead. In the show he gained famed for the “Carlton dance,” to the Tom Jones hit “It’s Not Unusual.”
The wedding for Alfonso Ribiero is a lot better than how he spent the tail end of his summer — dead. A rumor circulated through Twitter and Facebook, and as Zap 2 It reported it fooled a good number of people. All over Facebook and Twitter there were memorials and messages of condolence, and a source even said that Alfonso Ribiero’s phone became filled with messages from friends desperate to find out what happened.
But the Alfonso Ribiero death hoax didn’t last too long, as a number of other hoaxes including Morgan Freeman and Adam Sandler hit the internet, leading many people to figure out that it was all a phase.
So still very much alive, Alfonso Ribiero can now focus on his marriage and reflect back on the wedding. There was no word whether “It’s Not Unusual” by Tom Jones was chosen for his first dance.
