Well that is so good being that I helped her be worth that amount becuase I use to watch the Cosby show non-stop and now my kids are the biggest that's So Raven Fans so I am happy for her she needs to spread the wealth!!!
LOL you guys are to funny. Raven seems to be a very smart young lady and has head on very straight. She is not going to let any man take advantage of her. Very beautiful young lady. And she looks amazing on ebony cover.
Congrats to Raven! And whey do some people feel need to find something negative to say about everyone when we should be commending and praising them for being model African-American citizens and role models? Damn...let the girl live.
Raven, sweetheart, all I have to say is that a beautiful queen such as yourself deserves everything that she gets and earns everything that she has and deserves to be treated as a queen... ... ...by me...
She deserves it. She is a very talented actress. She looks great. I'm sorry she keeps fluctuating with her weight but I can understand, we all love food. She can shed it off whenever she wants from what I've observed from watching Raven. My 5 year old watches Raven but stopped to watch other stuff but that don't stop his mommy from watching.
I am so happy for her she turned out well we haven't heard any stories that she's strung out on drugs or anything and what I like most is she's comfortable with her body she said she doesn't have to be a size 2 to be hot u go gurrlll.
OMG!!!....fOR ALL OF YOU WHO ARE TALKING ABOUT MS. RAVEN,DO YOU REALLY THINK SHE CARES IF YOU THINK SHE'S FAT, UGLY OR WHATEVA IT IS YOUR HATIN ON HER ABOUT??? THAT BITCH GOT MORE MONEY THAN ALL YALL PUT TOGETHER. GO GIRLLLL...DO YA THANG!!!
Aiverson60 and everyone else who is calling Raven fat. Don't be a hater. I love the fact that she has a real body. We all have flaws. Even if she had a "perfect" body, you'd find a reason to hate on her. damn, can a sista live? Beyonce's body is "perfect", you hate on her. Rihanna has a cute shape, you hate on her. Ashanti is alright, you hate on her. We can go in a lab and create the perfect woman and you haters will still hate. Get a life and Get a job.
I have always loved Raven, she has proved to be one of the most successful childhood stars and definitly the most successful to come off the Cosby Show. All that $$$ and you never see her running around acting the fool or tied up in scandal......LOVE HER!!!!! Her parents must be very proud and rich....
I believe it. Raven's cds actually do well because alot of children go out and buy them. She has a clothing line, a make up and perfume line and the stuff smells good. Her show is the highest rated children's show in the world. Yes, mama is worth about 400 million dollars. I'm so proud of her. I used to couldn't stand her ass cause she was cool with my ex boyfriend but she's actually a really sweet person. Her size is beautiful, she's beautiful. Go raven! :) Doing it big for african american youth of today.
That goes to show that the money from Cosby up until now was wisely invested. I believe it...her show is a huge hit..Disney or not. Look at the Olsen twins....they have a billion dollar empire and Miss Symone is on her way on becoming Oprah Jr.
Oh by the way Raven Symone's black ain't she? Nuff said....Sistas rule!!! LOL!
Hell everytime i watch that show all im thinking is "Them Some Titties!'And anybody know what happened to the mom on the show?The chick that used to be on In Living Color?And is it me or is everybody on that show fat now?
She did it the same way as those Olson girls, but she does not have to split the money. She has a lot of different ventures and an incredible Disney/teen/pre-teen/elementary school following. She has a label, and I'm glad that she has spent her time coming out w/ new products and ventures, rather than drinking, clubbing, and other general slutting that some famous young stars resort to. I love her for her determination!
Raven to me is a beautiful, modest and spiritually inviting person. She deserves the best, shes gives it. I truly commend her, she has remained positive and real, regardless of what people have to say about her. I love Raven and she deserves to be worth that much. If not more. You go girl!! Pave the way for other young black women inspiring to be the best without the mess...without having to look a certain way or be a certain way to be successful. That girl deserves her prop. She aint trying to be no skinny supermodel or video chick look alike. Or a diva with arrogance...I respect that about her, and shes still beautiful. God Bless.
Disney has global impact! People on this board think being on MTV is what matters, but anyone who has done market analysis knows that the children/teen market has SIGNIFICANT buying power. Especially because she does not have much competition unlike saturated markets, i.e. hip hop market. This means that billions are exposed to her worldwide w/ not many other child role models to compete w/ her. I respect that she has not slutted herself out, walking around half-naked. A true role model.
Well said Annie and good for you Raven. She's obviously had great management and people advising her along the way. Of course some black people will focus on her weight and other negatives, when we should be proud that she's worked since childhood to amass this fortune and did it without drunken nights on the town, dating a stupid rapper or secret sex tapes. Black men/women should hope thier little girls turn out more like Raven and less like Lil 'Kim, but in our twisted stupid society who has more credibility right now?
I can honestly say I've never seen a Raven show nor do I get all the hoopla over her, but it's not for me to get, I'm a grown a$$ man. She's worked it and props to an intelligent, classy, ambitious young black lady getting it done.
We should all be happy for her and for us. This is history in the making.
.................Grand-daddy Cosby taught her well, and if it's the truth she surpassed anything that came out of the cosby show and continues her orbit. Good virtues and good focus is also mentionable to her success - NO sex,boys,partying, drinking or drugs!! This is the only way that this type of success can be attributed to such a young and determined individual!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks by most everyone's opinion...that Ms Raven is most worth every single penny she is making. In fact she is has more talent than most of these so called major overpaid movie stars. She can sing, act and her comic timing puts her in the range as Lucille Ball(watch That's So Raven , especially when has to disguise herself-funny,funny,funny stuff.) The Olsen Twins are making $$$ off on what they did before. But now they are like either strung out, not eating or whatever. Not exactly role-models. Whereas Raven has been and still good example of what good smart choices in life can lead you.....
yaa_theory that was very well said!!! no one can seem to win for damn losing. im so proud of raven and have always been a huge fan. she is so neat and talented and funny and doesnt conform to the way hollywood says she need to look and still got 400 million!!!!!
AIverson- u don't have to be in hip hop to be rich. And really, u make more money in tv and film than music. So her making more than Jay and Diddy is expected. Do u know how much merchandise she sells? These kids love her. Hell, look at the Olsen twins.
Raven keep doing your thing. You are giving all Black folks a good name. you are beautiful and bright, so fuck the haters. and you are a good role model for kids as well as teenagers,now they know they do not have to be a size 0 to be famous. keep doing the damn thang girl! much love and success!
Good for her, I doubt she told anyone how much she had. That's the business of you rag paper people. Again, who cares how many Stedman's knock on her door, she's not stupid. How ya think she got so rich?
Kudos to her! I'm just glad to see that a child star from back in the day is being commended for something other than drugs or arrests or screwing around. She's really a smart girl and I think thats just great! Make that Disney money girl!
Yes this is VERY TRUE!!!!!!!!!! Don't sleep...Miss Raven a has conquered a market UNTOUCHED by young blacks! DISNEY!!!!! The chitah girls have sold like 10 million albums....That is some kid music,and yup she is a major factor in the group. Then her show Thats So Raven is the No. 1 rated show on the disney channel, and i heard she is one of the producers......Her poskets are HUGE! GO SISTA!
yea i believe it. Shorti been in the game since she was like 3... she used to rap, she had her own label at one time, that cheetah girls shit mos def helped her cuz all little kids like it. Thats wassup. do the damn thing ms. simone
Goooooood for her..once again we are putting down another sister..why are people talking about her weight..obviousy Hollywood has looked past that..you go girl do yah damn thing!!!!
PEOPLE STOP HATING!!!!!
lol @ thekidd211
I'm very surprised that she's worth that much. That means she beat out all of them other disney h o e s... lindsay, hilary, britney, christina, even justin lol. You go girl. She has kept her ground and didn't fall into the trap of hollywood, ie drinking and not wearing panties. She's a very good role model and seems like a down to earth beautiful person.
First of all you people how are hating need to do some research, a person's net worth is not the exact dollar amount of money they have. And that goes for Jayz and Puffy too. Congrats to Raven for being a smart young black female. Also Raven has cookbooks, clothing line,perfumes,tv shows, 5 albums and quite a few movies.She did Dr. Dolittle 1 and 2. Cosby show,hannging with Mr. Cooper and her show. She's even done a couple of lifetime movies, not to mention what she does with Disney. And those damn cheetah girl concert tickets and cd's are not cheap, with that being said I do believe her net worth is $400 mil
Here we go again. See the topic in that issue at the top? How to love a black woman. No, tell me the perfect way on loving a black woman. I want to hear this. Only the black magazines have silly articles like that. I have yet to see "How to love a white woman in Good Housekeeping? How to love an Asian woman in People Magazine? How to love a white man in GQ? Puleeze, enough already. I guess they can't come up with any other title or article but that.
As for Raven, you go girl. She's been a great role model who has conducted herself wonderfully thus far. Wonder why? Good parenting, that's why.
first of all let me start off by saying that raven simone is not fat at all, not that theirs anything wrong with it but no one has the right to call anyone out their name because thats disrespectful...that goes for anybody...number 2, gold digging is so immature especially if your old as dirt...its disgusting especially for a guy...i'm happy for raven simone and if she's "fat" like some say she is...well she's making more money then you'll ever make in your life so stop hating on her. go ahead raven, we (some of us) aint mad at u
did anyone read the actual article it doesn't say she's worth 400 million, it says that how much that has been generated off her and things associated with her. she's not worth no where near that, in fact if she's worth a fraction of that call it a good day. i needn't remind you she doesn't own those shows, she's a paid actress, now she may get residules, but she's not the creator or exec.producer, so that's where the real money goes.
She's not worth $400Mill. If you read the Ebony article is says through, Nicolodeon, Disney etc. they have made more than $400Mill from her through advertising, marketing etc. Although, if she was worth $400 Mill or $40 either way God Bless her but it's not $400 Mill that she's worth it's $400Mill companies have made off of her.
alright raven dont want none of yall b**** a**
n***** because if she worth 400 mil she can pick any man she wants.And Aiverson60 I got one thing to say to you. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATER. YOU just mad because you couldn't make that kind of money if you died and came back alive 100 times. You probably gone live wit ya momma on yo golden anniversery. SO couldnt none of yall touch raven. BUT you can prtend yo right hand is raven for right now.
Im with u bigboy92! They dont even begin to understand. The girl is using her head and they would be the last men on earth she would ever talk to. Congradulate dont hate! Start investing instead of being ghetto fab and you may work your way to the top also. And stop being so dis-respectful. Matter of fact, dont email anything anymore unless you have anything positive to say about a sister doing her thing! You should be happy!
Thanks for the info, thekid. I think Raven is talented perhaps maybe even the new Lucille Ball. However she has not hit the 400 million dollar mark--yet. She's not on the Forbes 100 list for entertainers.
She's getting too old for Disney. I wonder what happens next? I'd love to see her take over the big screen.
Why shouldnt she have that much money? She produces her own show, she writes most of them, she gets residuals from the cosby show, and with good investments its very well possibel. Raven you keep doing your thing sister!
maybe she is worth dat much. FUKIN HATERS. she been out er since i can remember. She did gained some weight, but damn I LIKE HER SHOW and I'm 20. She aint exploiting herself like other hoes, and thats a mad prop imma give her. BIG UPS RAVEN. and you still look good big boned.
I believe it, I believe it. Aside from the acting, she has the old rap albums, the Cheetah Girls crap, the Disney albums, and those EXPENSIVE ass Raven clothes and accessories. Hell I want some of the money back that I spent on clothes for my daughter.
I just wanted to say that I lived in St. Albans,Queens on 210th street when I was little and Raven lived on that block as well. She was like 3 years old, outside playing with her little hair rollers in her hair, and her parents had her face shot up in the corner bodega. Even back then, she was a STAR. She was so nice and loved to play with the older girls. I even remember when she first auditioned for the Cosby Show, her parents told us she got it and the whole neighborhood was proud. She moved away very shortly after, and then we saw her on Cosby. I was proud of her then, and I am proud of her now, because not ONCE have you heard anything negative about that girl. She is a true role model for all black women. HATERS GET A LIFE!!
I can believe she's worth that. She has her own tv show and clothing line, not to mention her band. I'm so proud of her for achieving this type of success at an early age. Most people her age couldn't handle it and I never hear anything bad about her. That's wonderful. Keep up the good work.
If many stopped focusing on weight this world would be a lol better to live in. Raven is always and has always been a beauty. I've been addicted to that's so Raven and even watched her Georgia sitcoms. Keep it up show all the young woman and old just what a woman should be!
