Create Art” Continue reading “Meet Irina: The Life of a Teenage Entrepreneur”

That’s So Raven 2?

By Jude D.

Earlier this week the 30 year old Disney Channel star Raven Symone announced that she will be leaving her current show “The View” and going back to work with Disney channel for her That’s So Raven spin off. Raven said that she will be playing Raven Baxter but a more adult version, this character is much older and divorce with 2 kids (son and daughter). One of the kids inherited her ability to see into the future and she has to guide them on the dues and don’ts with this magical gift.

The original That’s So Raven that released in 2003, ran for 4 seasons, and has 100 episodes. Raven played a teenage girl whom just like us went to school with her 2 friends Chelsea and Eddie, but Raven wasn’t an ordinary girl. She had a special magical gift that made her be able to take a glimpse into the future. With this ability Raven got herself, family and friends in some deep trouble along the way.

There might be a little heat that comes along with this show though. Former co-star Orlando Brown (Eddie) isn’t particularly fond of the idea of the That’s So Raven spin off. Orlando posted a video stating that he hasn’t gotten a call about the spin off and that there will be no show without him. He states in the video, “It’s a serious situation, because, you know, we have fans all around the world that love the whole cast”, “We did what we could to make a historical moment happen, I don’t think that would’ve happened without all of us”. I guess we can say Orlando is a little in his feelings about not getting a call from little Miss Raven Baxter on this particular idea. As we the fans wait to see what will happen I think we can all say, the best of luck to Raven Symone and this whole spin off.
