MIDNIGHT SNACK: Raven Symoné Turns A Hot Chocolate 25!

​ ​ ​ ​

Little Olivia is OFFICIALLY all grown up.  YBF chick Raven Symoné turned the big 2-5 on Friday.  And she celebrated by hitting up the Hot Chocolate Nutcracker production the other night in a cute and fitted black sheer paneled and ruched patched dress with a vampy lip stain.  All kinds of hot.

 

Read on for the pics...

Ms. Raven hit up the Debbie Allen Dance Academy Production of "The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker" at UCLA.  And she brought her birthday fabness along with her.  Yes, it's a lot of makeup.  But I'm loving the dramatics.  And chick is lookin' great these days.

WORK.

HAPPY 25TH BIRTHDAY RAVEN!

It starts w/ your home, and Raven is a Ga peach =) romans 16:16 Acts 2:38 thegospelofchrist.com

I don't normally comment on

I don't normally comment on these things, but I wish more ppl would really research before they speak. Raven holds producer credits on most of her projects, she owns her own production company, she was executive producer of her own show on Disney, not to mention merchandising from that show and other projects. She is a smart business woman and not recognized by "mainstream" because she is not "out there" inappropriately. Str8 to dvd productions or cable productions are actually very profitable for a number of reasons...but this is not the forum for that sort of discussion. Ijs :-)

BRAVO***YES!*** I concur with you 100%. Very well stated and you are correct in your observation. Unfortunately, this forum uplifts entertainers like 1) Nikki Minaj (whatever the spelling) 2) Lil Wayne 3) Lil Kim etc., etc., According to this forum you either have to have committed a felony, did not snitch when someone shoots a love one, spend ALL your money on expensive cars and clothes, have NO investments - in other words spend your entire payroll on your looks and other tom foolery type of ish. Sadly this is what this forum boasts about. Not a positive, self respecting and intelligent woman like Raven. You have the Raven's of the world and then you have the Minaj's of the world. People are different and know matter how much you try to educate some...they just never will learn or care for that matter. Again "AWESOME" response!!! She's been the business for YEARS and rather than being front and center; she's behind the scenes making her money. LOVE YOU FOR THAT RAVEN!!!!

Does anyone have a credible

Does anyone have a credible link to this claim? If her worth were 45 million that would make her among one of the wealthiest women in Hollywood and I find that very hard to believe. I'm not trying to count her money, but I strongly doubt she's a multi-millionaire. I would assume that her career would be much better off if she had that kind of money. She'd be able to produce her own projects instead of the low budget stuff that she does. I mean, she come out in a great light because of this rumor, but I only see it mentioned on black entertainment blogs. I've never seen it backed up by a Fortune or Variety magazine. Her profile just isn't high enough for me to believe she's even a small power player.

Raven Symone is one

Raven Symone is one relentless young entrepreneur. She’s been making big business career moves since we first saw her in the 1980’s hit family comedy “The Cosby Show”. If someone had told me in 1986 that little Olivia from The Cosby Show would command her own entertainment and business empire one day, I probably wouldn’t believed it, but to credit, she had a lot of talent and a pair of positive and supportive parents to help guide her career. Raven is best known however for her starring role in the Disney Channel comedy series, That’s So Raven, which earned her $35,000 per episode. She’s accomplished quite a lot since her former child actor days. Her net worth last reported in 2009 by Forbes Magazine is between $40-$45 million as opposed to $400 million that other publications erroneously reported. Raven’s merchandising empire through partnerships with Disney and other companies is what is worth an estimated $400 million. She owns a percentage of that $400 million. She recently released her fourth self-titled solo album, “Raven-Symoné” on the Hollywood Records label. Her earnings in 2010 from sales of all combined albums is estimated at about $6 million. Raven-Symoné starred on four Disney Channel Orginal Movies: “Zenon,” “Zenon: Z3,” “The Cheetah Girls” and “The Cheetah Girls 2.” She also voice the role of ‘Monique’ on Disney Channel’s animated action/comedy “Kim Possible.” Not to be categorized simply as an entertainer, Raven expanded her entrepreneurial endeavors to the internet and created RavenSymonePresents.com, a how-to website for teens and tweens. Site users can search through uploaded social media content through a video player and pre-defined playlists. Each playlist content feature Raven-Symoné giving helpful tips and project ideas for her fans and supporters. Raven-Symoné is also involved with Girls Incorporated, a national nonprofit youth organization dedicated to inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold by providing vital educational programs to millions of American girls, particularly those in high-risk, under served areas.

You lame skank,

You lame skank, Raven-Symone's massive earning potential started when she landed her debut TV role at age 3. (From AOL) "First known as Olivia on 'The Cosby Show,' Raven went on to star in her own show, 'That's So Raven,' during which she boosted her salary from $20,000 to $35,000 per episode over the course of a few years. She went on to appear in movies like 'The Cheetah Girls' (both 1 & 2) and 'The Princess Diaries 2,' so our guess is that the sky's the limit on her paycheck." I've seen the estimates range from $25-400 million on her net worth. Just use google, you'll find something. How do you think the Olsen twins got famous? They flew under the radar until their 18th and BAM, they're billionaires! There are WAAAAAAY more extremely wealthy people out there than you know a bout. Just because someone isn't on BET making it rain, doesn't mean they aren't rich. And I bet she has a HELL of a lot more money than you do.

Thank you! Very well stated,

Thank you! Very well stated, especially the reference to BET. Some of these people in this forum rely on BET, Source Magazine, Hip Hop Radio to provide them their knowledge, data, research, information...LMFAO!!!! Like you stated and along with a few more intelligent people who come to this site to try and educate these 'nut cases'. She has an option to share her worth. I am wondering did any of those questioning her net worth - have ever thought that she could care less about her net worth and just LOVES what she do. Case in point, only idiots / broke azz negros boasts about their income, what they bought, what they own - again, there are the Raven's of the worlds and the minaj's of the world. Unfortunately we are out numbered by the minaj's spreading fakeness!

Bravo on the weight loss, but she shouldn't try to be sexy. Just be you raven.

She IS worth millions. No

She IS worth millions. No where near $400m though. That all started the Ebony magaizine article entitled "The 400 Million Dollar Woman" which did refer to how much she's made for Disney. I've heard her clarify that in an interview. I've read her actual net worth is around 45 million, definitely still falls under millionair status.
