Official: Raven-Symone Joins ‘The View’ As Permanent Host

Published: Wednesday 10th Jun 2015 by Sam

It’s official!

Raven-Symone‘s headline-grabbing antics as an interim host of The View have paid off. Why? Because the actress has been announced as a permanent additional to the topical talk show.

Details below…

Confirmation came at the start of today’s episode.

The 29-year-old takes up the vacant seat left by Rosie O’Donnell, who departed the long-running series earlier this year.

In the time since, an array of notable names have filled-in including Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child and, of course, Symone.

It’s believed producers tapped the star to bring in a younger vision and view to the show.


Congrats to Raven! Her words may not always be on the majority side of public opinion, but that’s exactly what keeps things interesting.

    Not surprised, They needed someone younger to be a host. These old and unknown ladies are tired.

      Wow you must be ten and are illiterate. Do your homework before you post ignorant posts.

      • Molly June 10, 2015

        Lol did I lie? Almost every bîtch on that show is old and tired. My generation can’t relate to them but we can relate to Raven.

      • Cough Cough June 10, 2015

        @Molly Barbara Walters was in her 60’s when SHE created and hosted the view. I highly doubt your generation is a factor to the view. It is a show for middle aged women so your comment is pretty irrelevant to the reality of the show.

      • Molly June 10, 2015

        This show in general is pretty irrelevant. Thank god for Raven though.

      • Legend B June 10, 2015

        Irrelevant just like u and Ci Error

      • Toohotfortv June 10, 2015

        …And isn’t it saying something that “your generation” relates to the things, Raven Symone, has to say. SMH… I’m not so sure that would speak well of anyone.

    • Molly June 10, 2015

      @LegendB who are you?

      • Legend B June 11, 2015

      No even remotely true.

    • Sean June 10, 2015

      Hahaha convince yourself

    Congrats Raven, I would love to see more black people (Woman) on daytime TV in the U.K.

    • Mark111 June 10, 2015

      The UK pay your Black Brit dust, yet some want to come on here and talk about African Americans? Mail Del Bey, the blogging flop.

      • DEL BEY June 10, 2015

        I almost missed this girl, don’t try it, black people are not segregated here, british people are accepting and equal all round

    • Toohotfortv June 10, 2015

      Don’t tell, Raven, that… I can’t remember completely, but I thought she wasn’t black. Or was it that she’s not African American? Whatever she is, she doesn’t represent me.

  4. Credits June 10, 2015

    I don’t care what no one says, I like her! Ever since she broke barriers in her “that’s so raven” days. I may not always agree with her opinion but I understand that not everything is black and white, and I feel like raven is always pushing the grey in between and that does not take away from the respectable person she has become unlike most of these child stars.

  5. NOBITCHASSNESS June 10, 2015

    It was only right. She’s great. Love me some Raven.

  6. pat June 10, 2015

    she gives ZERO fux 4 nunya; beyhive included!! That was a no brainer.

    • Legend B June 10, 2015

      Biitch please. She know not to come for Queen Bey again ????????????????????????????????????

  7. TheElusiveLamb June 10, 2015

    I knew this was going to happen. I felt that she was purposely saying off the wall comments just to bring attention to the show. As long as she’s making off the wall comments, The View will benefit from her, so of course they would sign her on. Still, I hate seeing Raven in this new butch persona. I miss the teen physic that was on my lunch box in elementary and middle school. 🙁

    • Mark111 June 10, 2015

      That was over 10 years ago and not only she was a teen (or younger), but also acting. If you watch her interviews, Raven always had a mouth on her and I love it. That’s the point of the show is to have an opinion and get people talking.

  8. Anthony June 10, 2015

    I love Raven. Have loved her since That’s So Raven. Even seen her when she was on Broadway a few years ago. Very happy for her.

  9. MusicLife June 10, 2015

    Honestly she makes perfect sense. People know her very well, she is younger and they were looking for someone young, and she does have an opinion. Not to mention she also speaks very well and is great with her talk show transitions. She comes off like a pro.

  10. Boykin June 10, 2015

    Desperate times call for desperate talent.

  11. Legend B June 10, 2015

    Well congrats Raven. Let the Draggggggging begin!

  12. HYISI June 11, 2015

    Have any of you even watched the show? Do you see how horrible of a host she actually is? Have you seen her try to go against all the other females, just to be put in her place like a child! She rolls her eyes at the other women while their talking and just had a horrible attitude!Raven doesn’t represent my generation simply because she’s an opinionated airhead! She’s out of touch with the reality of the everyday person! Just cancel the view and be done with it already!

  13. MISHKA June 11, 2015

    She’s somewhat controversial but she grew up on TV so it only makes sense she keeps going until she’s 70. That’s home for her. I’m glad she got the gig.

  14. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money June 11, 2015

    Good for her
