Raven-Symoné isn’t making any apologies about her not-so-wild ways and putting men on the backburner.
In a recent chat with Jet magazine, the actress shared that she’s really not into high-maintanance men. "I’m tired of being a mother," she explained. "I’m not a real mother, but you know what I mean. I don’t want to always have to pamper and baby. That’s not going to happen."
If she had it her way, Raven would have a man that’s great at following orders. "My perfect guy right now would be a mannequin—one that comes alive only when I need him to!" she said candidly.
While the actress seems to be popping up everywhere these days, now that she’s shed a few pounds, that won’t last long. Raven doesn’t anticipate that the public will be seeing much of her once her new sitcom, "State of Georgia," debuts June 29 on ABC Family.
"I stay in my house. The only reason you’re seeing so much of me now is because I need to promote the show," Raven cracked. "But trust me, I sit there like this (rolling her eyes) wondering when’s this going to be over. Soon I’ll go home and go back to ‘Man Vs. Food’ or reading a script… As soon as the show airs, I’ll be back under the radar."
Her homebody ways aren’t just reserved for industry events, either. Raven’s not big on being a party girl because she wants to make sure she can look her parents in the eye. "I have parents and grandparents to worry about," she stated. "I love my supporters, but it’s not even about y’all. It’s about what my parents are going to say."
Raven’s earned a right to her reserved tendencies, and she deserves a little quiet time. After watching this trailer for "State of Georgia", would anyone argue about whether she’s working hard while on camera?
