    However, it’s hard to believe, but there was a time when Ru faced rejection from appearing on a popular ’90s TV show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

    According to David Steven Simon, a former co-executive producer of the show between 1992 and 1996, the concept was rejected by none other than Will Smith himself. This interesting tidbit was shared by David in an interview with journalist Thea Glassman for her captivating book titled “Freaks, Gleeks, and Dawson’s Creek: How Seven Teen Shows Transformed Television.”

    During that period, Ru was making her mark in the mainstream scene with her chart-topping song “Supermodel (You Better Work)” in 1993. It was precisely during that time that David, in his creative prowess, suggested the idea of featuring Ru in cameo appearances while discussing fresh concepts for forthcoming episodes.

    According to David, Will was not typically known for turning down ideas, but he adamantly rejected that particular one, stating, “That would be an absolutely terrible idea,” with a dash of style and fashion-forwardness.

    David vividly remembers the time when Will expressed his reservations about featuring a drag queen on the show. Nevertheless, after some discussions, he eventually relented and said to Will, “Alright, alright. Let’s not pursue that idea,” promptly letting go of the notion of having Ru appear on the show.

    David suggested that Will’s resistance could be attributed to concerns about his image. According to him, Will’s refusal is solely based on preserving his image, plain and simple.

    Honestly, it’s high time Ru channelled her chic and fashion-forward style by inviting Will onto her illustrious, multiple Emmy-winning show as a judge! Picture it – an episode filled with excitement and glamour, where Ru could effortlessly address the infamous cameo snub during the captivating moments of Untucked.
