Raven-Symone Officially Joins 'The View': 'You Guys, Let's Have Some Fun!'

By
Raven-Symone is now officially one of the ladies of The View.
The ABC daytime program announced on Wednesday that the 29-year-old former Disney star will be joining co-hosts Rosie Perez, Whoopi Goldberg and Nicolle Wallace.
"I am so happy. I remember coming The View for The Cheetah Girls," Raven-Symone said after Whoopi revealed the big news. "I am very happy to be sitting with these smart, talented mentors."

The That's So Raven star then bestowed gifts to her fellow co-hosts: chocolate for Nicolle, bacon for guest co-host Iliza Shlesinger, cake for Rosie and potato chips and watermelon for Whoopi.

"You guys, let's have some fun!" Raven said. 

This announcement doesn't come as a surprise to avid watchers of The View, as Raven has been offering up her opinions on the show for several weeks now.
Not to mention her awesome hairstyles we've been seeing on a daily basis.

The View has seen quite the turnover in co-hosts over the past few years, with even Barbara Walters giving up her seat among the women. Rosie O'Donnell was the most recent to leave the program for personal matters.
Prior to that, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd all exitedThe View around the same time, but Whoopi remains!
Do you think Raven-Symone is right for the show?
