According to a gossip website, Raven-Symoné has been demoted on ABC’s daytime program, The View. The following is an excerpt from MediaTakeOut’s Sunday morning report:

“We told y’all that Raven was about to get FIRED from The View. According to our sources, Raven has been DEMOTED – from co-host to correspondent. They even removed her from The View’s home page. You can now find her on ANOTHER PAGE, with other “correspondents” of the show – including Padma Lakshmi and Sherri Shepherd.”

We checked ABC’s website to confirm the authenticity of this report. Fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you sip your tea, the report is bogus. Not only is Raven a co-host on the show, she’s still listed as one on the website, although her image is in a row with the correspondents mentioned by MTO, Padma Lakshmi and Sherri Shepherd.

Monday morning, the former Cosby child star also let it be known she was gainfully employed by posting this image and caption on Instagram:

Raven has been under fire since joining The View for making outrageous statements. Most recently, she said she would never hire someone with a Black name like “Watermelondrea.” As you can imagine, that didn’t sit well with Black Twitter.

    Who really believes anything MTO reports. It’s all satire.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
