Raven Symone has a lot to be happy for because she is now the new co-host of the daytime talk show, The View. Today, ABC made the announcement that the former Disney star will join Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez, and Nicole Wallace after being guest co-host for the past two months to fill the void of former co-host Rosie O’Donnell.
O’Donnell left show back in February after splitting with her wife Michelle Rounds. So far, Symone has been raising a lot of eyebrows because of the statements that she has made about the first lady Michelle Obama and Beyonce.
Here is a statement from Symone about her new endeavor:
“The Disney Company has made another one of my dreams come true! Being a part of ‘The View’ family will be a wonderful growing experience for me. The cast and crew are warm and welcoming and has made the transition into daytime talk easier. I have a lot to learn within this new arena, but being the apprentice of these spectacular women will only make me a better person and talk show host. I want to thank ABC, ABC News and The Disney Company for believing in me and my potential! Let’s have some fun!”
