You May Not Like It But…Raven-Symone is Winning

ABC's "The View" - Season 18

Hate her opinions or not, Ms. Raven-Symone has worked her way to a permanent position as co-host of ABC’s The View.

The outspoken 29-year-old is well groomed for the round-table styled show, as she has graced the “guest co-host” title 37 times alongside moderator Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and Nicole Wallace.

Whoopi made the official announcement during Wednesday’s broadcast. The gig is effective immediately.

“Being a part of The View family will be a wonderful growing experience for me,” Raven said in a statement released by ABC. “The cast and crew are warm and welcoming and have 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.”

The youngest talent on the show also marked this opportunity as “another dream come true.”

Clearly, Raven is winning, and the controversy she stirs with her views and perspectives has added a new breath to The View, where differing opinions keep the show hot.
