Has Raven-Symone Been Demoted on ‘The View’ for Barbara Walters Return?

Raven-Symone has quickly risen as the most outspoken member of The View, but has her frankness — such as recent comments about “ghetto names” — gotten her demoted?

Despite reports to contrary, a rep for ABC says these claims are “absolutely not true.”

The rumor was started by MediaTakeOut, whose sources previously claimed that Symone was on her way to getting the boot from the daytime talk show because that’s so Raven.

Still other reports claim that creator Barbara Walters wants back in due to the amount of negative press the show has been receiving.

If by negative she means horrifying yet endlessly entertaining, then yes, we would say it’s getting plenty of negative press.
