Call Watermelondrea! A Shake-up for Raven-Symoné at The View?

This is interesting.

Published August 15, 2016

Though the folks at The View have announced that Raven-Symoné is returning for the show's next season, new reports say they have another plan in mind and they're slowly executing it as time goes by.

Page Six reports that a source revealed she "will be phased out" in the show's 20th season.

"The plan is to phase Raven out slowly," the source said. "She has some projects cooking, and they'll say she left to focus on those."

Paula Farris, another new addition to the panel, is said to be on her way out as well, with more focus being placed on her role on Good Morning America.

ABC News President James Goldston says otherwise, though: "No one is being phased out, period," he said. "Paula [Farris] and Raven have been a tremendous part of our success this year, they're just getting started."

To see Raven actually make some sense for a change, watch BET Breaks, above.
