Raven-Symone returned to “The View” on Tuesday to celebrate her new show, “Raven’s Home.” 

After a number of appearances as a guest co-host, Raven-Symone joined the ABC talk show as a regular panelist in 2015. But as Gossip Cop reported, she announced last October that she was leaving “The View” for “Raven’s Home,” a spinoff to her hit Disney Channel series, “That’s So Raven.” The original program ended in 2007, but it never lost its fan base, thanks to syndication. The new sequel series, which Raven-Symone produces, premiered two weeks ago.

Now Raven-Symone returned to “The View” for the first time since her exit to discuss her Disney Channel comeback. The appearance actually started with a funny cold open shot in the makeup room, in which Raven-Symone said she was happy to be back as a guest because she could talk more. The joke was that Sara Haines and Whoopi Goldberg weren’t paying attention. Of course, that changed when Raven-Symone took her seat at the table, but not before she made a grand entrance by hugging various crew members and doing a jig to the “Raven’s Home” theme song.

“I missed you guys,” she exclaimed upon sitting down. “I’m having a fantastic time. I’m having a fun time with life.” That prompted Goldberg to quip, “With no time to miss us!” The former child star revealed she’s working from morning through the night, and won’t bring her phone on set to avoid the distractions of social media. “Post on Fridays. What you do Monday through Thursday is why people follow you in the first place. You have to work,” she stressed.

The group reminisced about Raven-Symone’s “side eye,” and how she taught Joy Behar “shade.” Sara Haines even said there was a happy “uproar” when she returned to the office today, and a montage showed some priceless highlights from her time on the show. That appeared to make Raven-Symone emotional. “I miss talking to you guys in the morning. I miss your faces. I miss the conversations, the learning I got to take with me,” she said. The actress did add, however, “When you sit at this table, you have the entire world judging you for your opinion, that’s difficult… That’s something I do not miss.”

Since leaving the talk show, Raven-Symone received her college degree, and is now finding “Raven’s Home” to be a “satisfying” and fulfilling” experience. But she deflected any praise. “It’s not me. It’s the cast and crew,” she insisted. Watch the full video below!
