Orlando Brown Is Missing

You know, when I was 20 years old and missing for less than 24 hours, people didn't really care. I don't think most people noticed. The police were not going to listen. And you know who didn't care at all? Kneepads Magazine. So it kind of shocked me when I saw they were basically throwing up a milk carton and using their website to search for Orlando Brown. I know, I know. You don't know who he is, but he is on Raven Simone's show and was maybe going to get his own show and therefore in the world of People Magazine he is a big deal.

So, when Orlando's manager, Ricky Romance (uh huh) called People, they immediately asked for an exclusive which they got and then have been spreading the word for Orlando to phone home, or e-mail.

Look. I hope Orlando is ok and that nothing has happened to him. Lets get that out of the way right now.

Orlando has now been missing for 24 hours and 20 minutes. The story was posted when he had been missing for 23 hours. What about all the other kids who go missing for 23 hours in America each day? Is People going to exclusively announce their disappearance? What makes Orlando more special than anyone else? I'm not saying it isn't news, but there is a reason why the cops usually wait a couple of days before they start looking for 20 year old guys who are on a television show.

Kneepads first concern was not Orlando. Read the first line of the article. They wanted their exclusive. Well how about taking some of the energy you are exerting on this guy and link into the Amber Alert network and flash that up on your home page. Seems that would be a better use of space than worrying about one 20 year old actor just because you wanted an exclusive.

Wait, isn't Ricky Romance the brother of that kid in B2K that claimed he was raped then recanted?? If so, how did Romance get such a huge client?

He called into the Wendy Williams Experience radio show about an hour ago. He's fine. Hopefully ricky romance didn't use this as a some sort of sick publicity stunt... (yep angela that the same ricky romance who accused Chris Stokes of molestation)

I KNOW WHO HE IS! I'm almost 33 but I'm proud (read: ashamed) to say I've watched That's So Raven more than once (read: almost every episode)

*hiding in corner* lol

Glad to hear he turned up alive and well! :)

I'm glad he's okay, but yeah p - my first thought was that this might be some sort of publicity stunt created by Ricky Romance. Gah, that Raz B/Chris Stokes mess was so....oh, I don't even have words for it.

my first thought was that he was on a drug binge somewhere.

hope he's okay

but if this is a stunt of some kind, then i hope he is never heard of again.
