The hosts of The View have been changing consistently over the past couple of years, with tons of guest hosts becoming very popular with the audiences. Now, it looks like one guest host in particular is being recruited to join the panel of women as a permanent addition, and that would be Raven-Symoné. The actress is apparently being sought by ABC, who is reportedly “desperately” trying to sign her on as a co-host on the show.
The former Disney star/Cosby kid was such a hit on The View last month, producers think she would be a great aspect as a permanent host. According to Page Six, “She was interesting and provocative. Raven would be great as a regular host.” A source told E! News, “She’s been terrific as a guest co-host. No decision imminent—all proceeding as planned as we’ve said for months.”
Raven has made headlines over the past couple of months for making numerous controversial statements, including her revelation that she does not identify as African-American. She also defended Rodner Figueroa, who seemingly compared Michelle Obama to that of a character in Planet Of The Apes. She later clarified her statements insisting that she was not suggesting the First Lady looks like an animal. So far, Raven has not reportedly made any solid plans to join the talk show.
