Blind Items Revealed

July 3, 2012

What former D list Tweener from a fairly big tween hit show has been making his living selling information about the star of that show who has been in the business long before she even hit tween. Her unwanted entrance into the spotlight about a topic was all because of him. He has a substance abuse problem.

Raven Symone/Orlando Brown

Dylan Beeson said...

So now we know who outed her, and that explains his DUI.

Who else read this as Orlando Bloom? I was confused.

msgirl said...

At first I thought it said Orlando BLOOM and I was totally confused.

msgirl said...

Jinx with zaaahara!

Sugar said...

Raven is gay? Don't remember that nor is it a big deal to me. And who the eff is Orlando Brown in this world anyway?

Carmen said...

Who is Orlando Bloom?

auntliddy said...

Oh, shes gay, thats whats meant by outing? Also dont remember any talk about this. Her being gay doesnt make any diff . Not nice to out people who arent ready tho. Hope he got help and makes amends.

Bet they were both at a party and she waited for him to leave then call in that DUI lol

janele said...

Raven article, on CDAN.

Carmen said...

Oooo lol duh moment ok so who's Orlando Brown?

Renoblondee said...

Orlando played her brother on That's So Raven. He also got his own show after Raven ended. My daughter loved Raven when she was little.

sifichick said...

Orlando Brown played her male best friend on That's So Raven.

That's so crappy that he would out her. That should have been her decision to make. I don't give a crap if she's gay or not what he did was really crappy. I remember when those rumors started. If I remember correctly it was right before his DUI.

Basil said...

I remember her being outed. She never confirmed it, but didn't deny it either. Glad to know who the son of a bitch was who outed her. And I am guessing that Orlando Brown doesn't get many job offers nowadays. Who wants to work with a big mouth?

Lizzeh said...

Orlando wasn't her brother. He was her best friend. He didn't get his own show either

Maggie Casey said...

LMAO rejectedcarebear! hahaha I was going to say that too

Renoblondee said...

You're right. It's been a long time since I watched!

Angela said...

I assumed it was Orlando Jones, but I'm happy it's a third, lesser known Orlando.

Feed Watcher said...

Way back in the day, Orlando Brown was Artie Lange's roommate in Hollywood.

Artie has certainly been open about his cocaine addiction leading to his arrest and eventual termination from Mad TV, but all I remember him saying about Orlando was that he was vegan.

This was around the time that Artie was spotted in his Mad TV pig costume after snorting cocaine off a key at a stoplight.

True story.

gee-gee said...

That's a punk move, Orlando. That is So NOT Raven.

EGB said...

Yes, @feed watcher, the Artie Lange story is true, but that was Orlando Jones, different actor. This Brown kid was born in 1987, way too young to be a Mad TV cast member.

RowdyRodimus said...

@Feed Don't feel bad, all I could picture was OJ, too. I was thinking when was the guy from the "Make 7 Up Yours" ads a tween star.

me too!! I had to read it three times.

Julie said...

Yup. this one is for sure true. I know his (former?) agent.

jennifer marsan said...

He was hustling his CD's on Hollywood Blvd. a year ago. I had no idea who he was but my 12 yo niece did. He seemed very desperate and very much a hustler.

Feed Watcher said...

Sorry. Who knew there were so many guys named Orlando?

I guess I owe Orlando Jones an apology, too.

I was looking for an excuse to discuss Artie's drug use. As usual.

Land Manatee said...

I would watch her show with or without my kids. Raven is soooo funny. Her facial expressions would kill me.
I don't care she's gay, but agree her outing should have been on her terms.

Kloie said...

I always liked her on Cosby. :) "Hello, Dolly, well hello, Dolly. It's good to have you back where you belong!"

Ari said...

That's SO awesome!

AKM said...

Bwahahaha. I was thinking Orlando Jones, too. Yikes.

NomNom83 said...

Pathetic move on Orlando's part.

Raven seems to have turned out okay. Especially when you factor in "child actor" and "former LiLo roommate".

I hope she continues to do well and, if she is gay, that she reaches a point in her life where she does not feel the need to be closeted. Of course, that assumes that she is closeted versus just private.

Read it as Bloom. Was legit confused for about 15 minutes. Go home Maxine, you're drunk
