Raven-Symoné returned to ABC's The View on Tuesday, where she discussed her new Disney TV show "Raven's Home". The plus-sized actress plays a divorced single mother-of-2 in the 'That's So Raven' spinoff.

Raven, who is openly lesbian, joined The View as co-host in 2015. She lasted one year before she was forced to leave after trending too many times on Twitter.com for the wrong reasons.

“I missed you guys,” the 31-year-old told her former co-hosts. "I miss talking to you guys in the morning. I miss your faces. I miss the conversations, the learning I got to take with me."

The women reminisced about Raven's many scandals and she gushed about working on her own show, which she described as "fulfilling and satisfying."

"I'm having a fantastic time. I'm having a fun time with life," she laughed.

She doesn't miss the pressure of working on a daytime talk show.

"When you sit at this table, you have the entire world judging you for your opinion, that's difficult. That’s something I do not miss."

Raven rocked a punk rock mohawk and showed off her eclectic style of dress as she signed autographs outside the studio.

    No one is going to disagree with this one being plus size?
    I'm not fat shaming at all, I'm referencing the Rhianna post last week.

  • RaginB

    Wtf is the weather like?!

  • n1kk1a

    Why is she having to be a single mother of two? ?

  • MookieFly

    Serving T-Boz realness! I don't care what continent in Africa she is from. Im enjoying Raven's Home and will continue to do so

  • Ryan

    She was annoying on The Cosby Show and is annoying now. *shrug*

  • Karen Brady

    I miss that woman like I knew her :-).

  • stav

    Sandra you are one bloody cow( in your nationality slang)! What does her weight have to do with anything? What's great about individuality is that it comes in all shapes , sizes , and colors! Your obvious juvenile antics for clicks are old and unnecessary!

  • Karen Brady

    Pretty much. I'm realizng it now that I'm older when I watch Cosby. And Heathcliff hung on her every word. Basically kicked Rudy to the curb. Could'nt care less about Winne and Nelson. That's all I got. I should prolly turn off the dang tv lol.

  • klwbaby

    What is with this obsession with people's weight??

  • Greatgrape37

    She's a writer ppl...writers use a lot of adjectives and are very descriptive.

  • Owww76

    That show is so damn funny! I love her physical comedy and the chemistry with Chelsea and the kids!

  • bhavana

    Your friend is not the sharpest tool in the shed, is he??

    "The plus-sized actress plays a divorced single mother-of-2 in the ‘That’s So Raven’ spinoff."

    I remember when people made a big stink over the Mary Tyler Moore show because it featured a single woman living on her own. Flash foward to 2017, and Disney is promoting broken homes? Is Raven a widow? Typically, that's the only acceptable explanation.

  • Luv Pitties

    Because contrary to what Raven thinks she is still Black in the eyes of those Jews that run Hollywood and Disney

  • YellowSauce

    sometimes you forget why you were mad at a person lololol with that said I can't remember why she pissed me off ... I think she likes saying things for the controversy ... I DID enjoy her on Empire but not the view ... i don't think I like anyone on the view ...

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    For the same reasons they wanted Florida Evans to be a single mother.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    She was as cute as a button as a kid, not so much when she grew up running that mouth.....

  • MsPam

    Especially Whoopi

  • MookieFly

    Its cute! Plus like the more adult aspect Raven and the older cast bring to the show. I don't like that next door neighbor girl tho lol

  • Vonn

    This story is a plus size trap.

  • n1kk1a

    Oh yeah! I forgot she's "dark white" so the stigma doesn't affect her. ?

  • IntroSpective

    Raven lost ALL of that weight only to gain it back plus some ?. She IS in fact plus size (still beautiful) and Rihanna is not. ?

  • FallenOne

    She gained all her weight back.

  • Indies beauty

    I love Raven. I caught her new show... You know for the culture... And it was actually really good.

  • Renee26

    She looks hot as hell with all those layers on...we know you fat; it's ok

  • Peter Piper ATL

    What words can be used? Big, burly, tacky, just an extreme mess.

    A Bohemian butch-lesbian bag lady fresh from a Grunge concert?

  • Kayke

    They do not want to promote solid black households or go through the controversy if the husband was made to be white or other.
    Wanting to support black TV just to have a presence but not wanting to support their fundamental ideas of us through those shows is an on going battle for me.

  • Kayke

    Lol.... Not eloquently put, but he's not wrong.

  • Owww76

    Lol yeah she is a lil too much. The one that plays Chelsea's son is the funniest out of the kids.

  • IamAllnatural

    Raven is so pretty, it's too bad her style & personality doesn't match her face.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    chile, ain't nobody checking for this looney toon.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Guess she broke through that lap band....................

  • Desiree Edwards


  • WutizaGRANNY!
  • country57

    Thinking the same, just do you without all the hot clothes. Has to be at least 85 degrees.

  • country57

    Accurate :):)

  • Quitedeliteful


  • HotInCleveland


  • Quitedeliteful

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Dee

    A hot ass mess!!

  • Karen Brady

    I love your name!

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Karen Brady

    just wrong.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I used to like Raven until she showed her azz on the view. Now, I have zero interest....

  • Karen Brady

    And don't give him my # cuz he is a straight up fool! LOOLLLLLLLLL.... He's a funny mofo! (his voice getting hyped) :-) :-)

  • Solstice

    I swear I thought it! LOL After last weeks education on Rihanna, I think Raven is plus sized now.

  • Ya papi

    What does her being plus size openly lesbian have anything to do

  • Peter Piper ATL


  • Peter Piper ATL

    Can't hide it

  • Solstice

    Absolutely nothing. Auntie Sandra makes those comments for kicks and giggles. Just like her post last week on Rihanna being plus size now lol. Just to stir the pot

  • Malcom Flex

    So, she's now a FAT 'dark white' lesbian? I guess Di$ney likes it!

  • Bonsai

    I'm thinking it's because she's the executive producer and being a lesbian in real life played a part in why she wanted to be a single mother on the show.

  • dontgetblocked

    Who would have thought that cute little girl...well...she wasn't that cute but who would have thought that little girl would have turned into this big fat, self-hating fake. She's disgusting.

  • Torae

    She looks a mess...is she trying to be trendy or trying to hide her weight gain?

  • Jennifer

    She needs to go to Lane Bryant or Ashley Stewart and get flattering, sexy, age appropriate clothing. She looks a damn fool in that rough dry rummage sale outfit. When will she and Janet learn that wearing layers of too big clothing makes even skinny people look fat and funky. And take those boots back beyond the thunderdome!

  • monique

    She's becoming Whoopi part all with her style.

  • NeverSurprised

    Now that Cos is back on, I'm loving seeing the kids when they were young. Raven was an ADORABLE child.

  • Stacey J

    "The plus-sized actress"? The shade...the shade....

  • Bonny

    She's divorced

  • pure_rachet

    it got to 90 today in Los Angeles.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    That second pic though...

  • Michelle

    The United States is not the whole world sis, no one outside the USA cared for your opinion and u still ugly sis. Would be cuter as a fem lesbo

  • Ro

    Raven your so beautiful, but you look a mess!

  • Bambi

    Sandy girl you and all of this "plus size" talk lol.

  • JerseyMom

    I saw an episode on YouTube. The show is horrible. All the actors are over acting. I doubt the show will last long.

  • Chuck

    I love Sunny.. Raven looks hideous with the dark lipstick and baggy clothes.

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    Why does she have on so many clothes...isn't it hot outside...that's all I got!

  • YellowSauce

    Whoopi has nothing on Elizabeth Hasselbach .... lol

  • YellowSauce

    Whoopi has nothing on Elizabeth Hasselbach .... lol

  • TheOwley

    They don't like on the view because she doesn't play victim and has her own opinions, regardless of who agrees or not. She calls herself an American, not a lesbian-American, African American, etc. She refuses to be boxed into a role and that's a no no in that industry.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    She is starting to look like a lesbian version of Hazel E from LHHLA...

  • Indies beauty

    I love how you worded that comment.
