Raven-Symone might be taking even more time to enjoy The View. After a successful spring co-hosting stint on the ABC morning show, the actress, 29, is in talks for a permanent seat at the round-table with Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez, and Nicolle Wallace, sources confirm in the new issue of Us Weekly

"They think she's really smart but also a little kooky and so she'd be a good fit," says one TV insider.

It helps that the former child star of The Cosby Show has already proven she can handle the pressure. "Every night she studies all the current events and topics for the next day," a second source adds. "Everyone is blown away. Nobody else prepares like she does!"

Bringing on a new voice would be the latest in a string of major changes at the long-running talk show. Shortly after co-hosts Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd departed the panel in August 2014, second-time co-host Rosie O'Donnell returned — only to exit the show months later, in February.
