EXCLUSIVE: Raven-Symone Says She Still Keeps In Touch With Her Former 'View' Co-Stars: 'It's Bittersweet'
By Jennifer Drysdale
Raven-Symone still likes to sit back and enjoy The View.
ET's Brice Sander caught up with the 31-year-old actress backstage at the Radio Disney Music Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday, where she opened up about her continued friendship with her former View co-stars, after leaving the talk show last year.
"I stay in touch with my ladies," Raven revealed. "It's bittersweet. I miss them. I'm happy to be in L.A., but I miss them dearly, and hopefully you'll see some of them on [Raven's Home]."
"It was fun and I enjoyed being an adult on television, which I had never done before, and I really learned a lot from the ladies on The View, especially Whoopi [Goldberg] and all of the producers behind the scenes," she continued. "I'm still friends with them."
"They treated us so well with the reunion of That's So Raven, that hopefully we do get to go back," Raven added.
The Disney star is so close with Goldberg, that the 61-year-old actress gifted her with the skirt she wore to the RDMAs on Saturday.
"One of the inspirations [for my look was] to be comfortable, [another was] Whoopi Goldberg, queen, and just to have fun," she shared. "Sometimes I take the carpet so seriously and I get anxious, and I start freaking out and I can't pose correctly, but this skirt was given to me by Miss Whoopi Goldberg."
"I said, 'You know what? Let me just put on some flat shoes, so when they have me running around doing all the things they need me to do, I can get up and wink at them.' And the my hair, you know, I'm in love with all the fantastic performers at RuPaul's Drag Race. But they've always inspired me to do fun things with my look, and because of them, I'm here," Raven said.
