*After the Disney Channel announced “That’s So Raven” is getting a reboot in the form of a spinoff series starring the original OG, Raven-Symoné, her former co-star on the series, Orlando Brown, came forward to proclaim that there’s no real spin-off without him and the rest of the cast.
Raven-Symone announced Thursday that she’s leaving “The View” to play a single mother (of course) in part 2 of her hit Disney series, but when TMZ caught up with Brown on Friday, he said he’s still waiting for that call about reprising his role.
Brown played Raven’s BFF on the show, but the two had a fallout earlier this year when Raven accused him of stealing her phone. Back in February, he was also arrested in Torrance, California, and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery, obstruction of justice, drug possession with intent to sell, and having contraband in jail.
The actor and musician had guest starring roles in several Disney Channel sitcoms in the early 2000s.

Meanwhile, Mariah Carey was spotted recentlyt enjoying a meal at Catch restaurant, and she was accompanied by (and left with) her backup dancer Bryan Tanaka. The attention-starved diva is showing out with her rumored boy toy, following the break up with billionaire businessman James Packer.
Tanaka also was with Carey the night before at Nobu, another restaurant where celebs can count on a plethora of paps capturing their every move.
Tanaka was allegedly a sore point in Mariah’s relationship with Packer, so it’s pretty clear which card she’s playing by stepping out with him.
