19 years after its debut, the cast of Family Matters reunited in an Entertainment Weekly photo shoot that left all of us with a range of emotions.

But there was one cast member who was noticeably absent, 37-year-old Jaimee Foxworth.

In an interview with The Root, Foxworth spoke out against the magazine for not extending an invite, citing her past career as an adult movie star for the possible snub.

“I was not invited at all. I wasn’t even contacted. Shawn [Waldo] sent me a text two days before it was released. He asked if anyone contacted me, and he just wanted to let me know that EW contacted them to do a reunion cover. And he just didn’t want me to be shocked when it came out.”

“The people in the picture are more important than the picture itself. It was a slap in the face from Entertainment Weekly. I don’t think there’s any good explanation. If they want to use adult films as the reason, I’m not the first person to do adult films and won’t be the last,” she says.

And for those fans waiting on a reboot. Jaleel White doesn’t think it’s going to happen.

“No one from #Netflix has ever contacted any of us to express an interest in doing a reboot. No hard feelings at all but that’s the God’s honest truth and life moves on with more blessings to come,” he said in a caption on Instagram. Read the entire explanation below.
