You know what’s not so Raven? Getting caught stumbling out of a club at 4 in the morning. Former child star Raven-Symone sat down with Oprah Winfrey recently to chat about her life in and out of the spotlight, and she had some interesting words of advice — with a not-too-subtle side of shade — for her peers in Hollywood.
Asked how she was able to avoid the all-too-common pitfalls of fame at a young age, The Cosby Show actress, 28, replied, “My parents taught me to keep my private life private to the best of my ability. They showed me all the role models out there that I could turn into, and what I want for myself in the future.”
Without naming names, she went on to throw shade at other young celebs whose scandals now outshine their careers. (Incidentally, the actress once shared a pad with fellow starlet Lindsay Lohan, who has been arrested multiple times and in and out of rehab for several years.)
“Seeing all of the statistics [with] child stars going off the edge, what I’ve learned? It’s unnecessary to go to the most popular restaurant in the world when you have a scandal on your head, and then get mad that someone’s gonna take a picture of you,” Raven-Symone told Winfrey. “That’s your fault, boo boo. Stay in the house.”
