I grew up in the era of the Family Channel, of ABC's Friday Night Lineup, as well as the pinnacle height of the Disney Channel. I recall them all — from Raven Symoné to Josh Peck. Speaking of the former, she's come a long way since her days on the set of That's So Raven.

Today, Raven Symoné is a celebrated voice actress, the star of her own Disney Channel series, as well as a former co-host of The View. Recently, she sat down with Tamron Hall to discuss her new marriage and talked about how her wife hadn't seen a single episode of That's So Raven.

If You Grew Up in the ’90s, Then You’re More Than Familiar With Raven Symoné

Raven was a staple child actress of the '90s. Her big break came when she was cast to play Olivia Kendall in The Cosby Show and went on to appear in some of the most defining childhood films of the decade — including The Little Rascals and Dr. Dolittle, starring Eddie Murphy.

But of all of Raven's many career accolades, the one she gets recognized for the most is her self-titled sitcom, That's So Raven. Raven's Disney Channel series aired from 2003 until 2007, spanning 100 episodes. It's no exaggeration to say that every single TV-watching kid knew who she was at that time.

While making an appearance on The Tamron Hall Show in the early spring of 2022, Raven revealed that her partner had never seen so much as a single episode of That's So Raven before they met.

"It's fantastic!" Symone exclaimed to Hall. "Imagine being in a relationship with someone who doesn't look at you like a famous person even though you have been famous your whole entire life. You get to be seen."

Raven beamed as she explained how Miranda had changed her life for the better, but they both admitted that their love didn't come easy, nor was their relationship perfect by any means. In fact, Raven and Miranda take part in couples therapy each and every Saturday. The couple views their therapy sessions as being preventative. And just like a car does, so too do relationships require maintenance to make them run smoothly.

Raven Also Expounded Upon How Both Marriage and Therapy Have Helped Her in Her Professional Life

"I believe in therapy. I believe in the couch," Raven told PEOPLE (The TV Show). "I have been guarded my whole entire career because of what I've been taught to do, because of the people around me, because of my childhood."

The Disney Channel alum concluded her discussion by saying that now she has someone she knows who has her best interests at heart and will watch her back. Finally, she feels comfortable, but more than that — she feels heard.
