Raven-Symone was officially named a new co-host of "The View" today.
Maybe you care a lot about this development. Or maybe you're more Fred-Armisen-as-Joy-Behar about the whole affair.
A lot of people are probably at work when The View airs, but this might be interesting news to any moms who watch it while it's playing at the gym. And it does seem like there's been a lot of juicy drama with The View co-hosts lately, with Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd gone, past host Rosie O'Donnell returning and leaving again, and Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez getting hired. I bet Whoopi Goldberg is just ready for some stability in her co-hosts already. But based on her Instagram, she's maintaining a good attitude.
Symone is, of course, famous for playing Olivia on The Cosby Show and the titular Raven in That's So Raven. Apparently, she impressed producers of The View by doing homework before each episode. A source told Us Weekly:
Every night she studies all the current events and topics for the next day. Everyone is blown away. Nobody else prepares like she does!
No matter what you accomplish, everything turns out to be just like high school.
