ABC is interested in having actress-singer Raven-Symoné as a co-host on “The View,” writes Emily Smith in a scoop for the New York Post’s Page Six.
The piece says Raven was a guest host in March and ABC executives were impressed. Though the piece quotes an ABC “source,” there is no official comment from ABC or Raven in the story.
Raven-Symoné, 29, who has been on TV since she’ was 3 years old, is probably best known as the star of “That’s So Raven,” the Disney Channel hit that ran from 2003-2007.
If Raven does get a regular gig on the “The View,” judging from her appearance on the show last month, she’s not afraid of controversy. Here she’s defending Rodner Figueroa’s comments about Michelle Obama looking like a cast member of “Planet of the Apes.”
