Actress Raven Symone has officially come out. The 27-year old former child star, best known for her roles on The Cosby Show and That’s So Raven, tweeted a message earlier today that officially ends all speculation about her sexual orientation.
We think it’s safe to assume Raven is referring to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, which was struck down back in June.
Raven’s personal life has been a source of intense speculation over the years. Back in March when she was spotted with a known lesbian, she quickly shut the media down, claiming her personal life was not open for discussion. “My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m dating to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life,” she wrote on her personal website.
Since coming out Raven has been bombarded with questions via Twitter, but has so far remained quiet.
All that’s left to see now is how her career will fare now that she has openly admitted to what we all kinda knew in the first place.
According to IMDB insiders, Raven Symone’s new ABC Family comedy, ‘State of Georgia,’ is currently in a state of flux.
Rumor has it the show, which debuted on June 29th and wrapped up its initial 12 episode run on August 17th, may not be coming back for a second season due to poor ratings.
The show originally debuted strong, pulling in an audience of just over 1.3 million viewers. However, ratings dropped with each subsequent episode, with the final two drawing an audience of just over 600,000.
ABF Family has not officially canceled the show, however loyal fans have already drawn up petitions and started a Save State of Georgia Facebook page in hopes of garnering enough public support to convince ABC to bring the show back for a second season.
