Former Cheetah Girls Raven-Symoné and Adrienne Houghton Reunite on 'Raven's Home'

Adrienne Houghton reprises her role role as Alana.

Former Cheetah Girls Raven-Symoné and Adrienne Houghton are giving fans a much-needed blast from the past as they reunite on Raven's Home.

Houghton is reprising her role as Alana, the high school bully from That's So Raven, in the upcoming fifth season of the popular Disney Channel series, Raven's Home. But even as grownups, Houghton's character manages to make Raven Baxter's life quite dramatic after Baxter learns Alana's the principal at Bayside High School. It's the school where Baxter's son, Booker, is enrolled after the family relocates from Chicago to San Francisco.

But off-screen, Houghton and Raven couldn't have been happier to once again join forces. Houghton, who in 2019 said she would "absolutely" reprise her Cheetah Girls role, couldn't contain her excitement, taking to her Instagram Story to share behind-the-scene pics of her dressing room door and script. She captioned the Story, "So excited. Are you ready?!"

Houghton told TVLine she had always been hopeful about playing Alana again. The fact that it's finally happened in the That's So Raven spinoff "was a dream come true." 

"I always love working with [Raven-Symoné]," she said. "We did the first Cheetah Girls movie when I was 19, and now I'm 38, so we've stayed friends for almost 20 years.

"We laugh at the fact that we were playing the high school students ... and now we're playing the parents. It's so bizarre!"

Raven has previously floated the idea of a possible Cheetah Girls reunion. She told ET back in April 2020 that she would need to talk to the ladies first "because we need to curate an answer." That being said, Raven expressed that Houghton will always be her ride-or-die.

"Listen, I'm down with Adrienne [Houghton], whatever Adrienne's down to do, I'm down," she said at the time. "I will work with Adrienne for the rest of my life."
