Raven-Symoné: “Now That I’m Thin, I Don’t Feel As Attractive As I Did When I Was A Thicky-kins”

- By Bossip Staff

A little 2011 inspiration:

If there’s one thing Raven-Symoné never lacked, it’s self-assurance. The former Disney star, 25, who once contently called herself “thick and fabulous,” showed off a decidedly slimmer look at Wednesday’s People’s Choice Awards. Strutting her stuff in a cleavage-bearing, all-black leather ensemble with thigh-high Louboutin boots, Symoné says she was never one to consider herself unattractive when she was still heavy.

“I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did,” she tells PEOPLE. “So, whatever.” If anything, Symoné is not yet entirely comfortable with her new look. “Actually, now I wear bigger clothes because I don’t like the way people stare at me,” she says. “I liked it before. Now, you’re just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason.”

Either way, the onetime That’s So Raven star says she’s breathing a sigh of relief over no longer having to deal with her show – the strain of which, she says, contributed to her weight gain.

“That’s what stress does to you,” Symoné says. “I’ve been not stressing. I’ve been in my own house, decorating and finding hobbies.”

She is lookin damn good. Definitely a good look, Raven.

  • Nana

    She looks like a very pretty Miss piggy!

  • Leen

    Maybe she’s a victim of childhood sexual abuse to want to hide under layers of fat. I think she looks fab now, w/ the extra weight off.

    • miamac

      If you ever need haters, all you have to do is come here. My God, Raven looks ‘fab-u-lous and yet thirsty person are so jealous that are up here hating! Must be miserable to start the year off that way — miserable. Do your thang Raven (which you evidently do since you are doing a-okay in the success and financial arena). I’ll be praying for all the haters, lol.

      Yep, I’m SAVED! Sounds like you need to be to, lol. Visit Mt. Caramel Baptist and see if you can get with the footstomping service, if not, Jontel will open your library and read ya! Snap, Snap!! saved-miamac.blogspot.com

      Raven knows she looks good. If she didn’t she never would’ve worn her boobage out like that.
      You know celebs like to pretend like there not happy about losing weight because they feel all the other BIG women in the world would be let down.
      I mean really, who actually enjoys being fat?

  • Niina

    She looks good either way….but she doesn’t need to lose ANYMORE weight.

  • Blaxitive (I talk mad sh!t)

    What does she want to be fat or skinny? Either way we men are going to look at you with the same intention. We go off of what we see and what stimulates us at the time. She doesn’t like the way men look at her now that she’s skinny but didn’t mind it when she was fat because she didn’t (think) it was for the wrong reason SMDH..ding ding ding..dumb broad alert!!!

  • Keep it Real

    She’s got too many black fat women in her ear. Get rid of the NEGATIVE fat women and those fat women clothes. Hangout and go shopping with some fit pretty women. You’ll get over your thin(their looking at my body) anxiety

    There is no shortage of food in america she can always eat something if she hates being slim!!!

  • A

    She actually looks her age now. Good for her.

  • that damn sh#$ disturber

    so proud of her! always loved her and she looks beautiful!



  • really?

    “I thought I looked fabulous…” so did Mo’nique (or so she said)…but look at her now! Why must you say this? You didn’t just wake up slimmer one day, it took intentional effort…this crazy talk isn’t fooling anyone, not even you…You’ve gotten what you wanted. You felt overweight and less attractive and did something about it! There’s nothing wrong with admitting that.

    • hahahhahaha

      Exactly. Raven’s not ugly, but when she was fat, she always looked a mess. You can tell she wasn’t comfortable. Always had the granny dresses. I’m sure a stylist could’ve made her look 100 times better even when she was big. Look at her eyebrows…even they’re better now, cause she’s finally taking the time to fix herself up now.

    • Curious1 aka Flawless Beauty

      This is what I hear from Before and Afters….makes me shake my head..just don’t say it so when ya lose it ,people won’t say you bragged about being heavyset minute u lose it..now you admit..the sleep apnea and difficulties with not at ya best syndrome…

      Do something everyday and eat right and this is LIFE…for LIVING…no bragging and no back peddling…JMO..sorry


    A thin curvy lightskint black girl. HIT THE ALARM BUTTON… “HERE COMES THE JEW” LOL Wouldn’t be surprised now that she is skinny, she’ll pop up with a cracka. Yeah I say that real sheeet.

  • hahahhahaha

    Raven better werk! I don’t believe her when she says she like being bigger better. She dressed like a grandma and her outfits were always a mess. She wears bigger clothes now that’s she skinny? Yeah right Raven. You sure weren’t out there on red carpets with your bra showing when you were fat. It’s ok to love the new you.

  • Soopaflhi

    Did she lose weight naturally? It all seems so sudden A GOOD LOOK RAVEN

  • mercury

    she kind of looks like lala vasquez now

  • http://static2.hypem.net/thumbs/2/1089002.png YokoDMV

    i LOVE raven so im happy for her 🙂 she looks awesome and confident and older

  • Chi Girl

    This sounds like she wants attention. Why would you get small if you don’t like being small? Makes no sense.

  • tommykimon

    Beautiful chick both ways skinny or thick.

  • Choc

    I’m happy for Raven. She looks good. I’m happy to see many Black female celebrities losing weight. Most of us are naturally curvy and look beautiful with less weight.

  • VirgoJewel

    If she’s thin, I’m freakin anorexic. Lmao
    Ya’ll know she has to say crap like this so she doesn’t alienate her mostly obese American women fan base. Fat chicks be mad as h*ll when one of their own loses weight. They take that ish personal. Its like violation or something. LoL

  • daisy jay

    I remember when That’s So Raven first came out. It seemed like every episode, she got bigger and bigger. She never did look bad, but that’s what I observed. I’m surprised to know that she said this about herself. Does she look better smaller? I think it’s a win-win either way, but she does look great. Perhaps it will just take some time for her to get used to it. What stuck out to me is when she mentioned how before when she was big, people looked at her for a real reason. I’m looking at some of the comments from the guys and they’re being…kinda like pigs. Perhaps she should take it as a compliment? I don’t know, but I hope she gets better mentally over time.

  • 1991 UK Gem of Africa...

    she does look really good… but that outfit is not saying much

  • rhona mattan


  • Lndon Girl

    She does look good! But you cannot tell me those plump pancakes on the left are sexier than those pillows on the right! LOL

    Either way (in the main pic) she looks good! Well done girl
