There have been rumors floating around about Raven-Symone's sexual orientation for a couple years now, but today she finally made what amounts to a straightforward announcement. Symone tweeted: "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you." Not that it was any of our business, but CAH-YOOT.
Of course, it's a safe assumption that the 27-year-old actress is referring to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn The Defense of Marriage Act back in June, which will allow same same-sex marriages to be recognized by the Federal government — and that just this week Minnesota and Rhode Island became the latest states to legalize same sex marriage.
In the past, Symonè has been much more private about her personal life. The last time the Internet lit up with rumors that she was gay was when she tweeted:
"My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I'm datings to know. I'm not one for a public display of my life,"
..."I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted. I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage. I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to."

Leah Remini is writing a tell-all book about her experiences with Scientology.
"It will include my experiences, everything that's taboo to talk about," the former Talk cohost, 43, told Us at the 15th annual DesignCare event in Malibu on Saturday, July 27.
Remini initially remained mostly mum following her "dramatic break" from the Church (the New York Post's Page Six first broke the news), but the King of Queens actress has now vowed to break her silence.

Katy Perry says she's definitely not boning Robert Pattinson, and the reason you can tell is that she is just constantly blasting her ass gas in his face or something. You know, like non-intimate pals do.
"Okay, so here's the proof there was never anything going on with me and Robert Pattinson," Perry reportedly told Elle U.K. (via Us). "I fart in front of him. Properly fart. And I never, ever fart in front of a man I am dating. That's a rule."
"He's my bud, I'm like his big sister," Perry said of R.Pattz. "We just hang out. The other day, I said, 'One of the things I'm most proud of is not sleeping with you, Robert.' And that's true."
In the same Elle interview, Perry explained how she cleared things up with Stewart, whom she's also friends with, after the dating reports began hitting the web.
The 28-year-old singer dished, "I sent her a text message saying, ‘I know you've seen all this stuff, but you know I would never disrespect you. I'm not that person. I'm just trying to be a friend to him but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of tits."'
If intimacy level is inversely proportionate to the amount of times you've smelled another person's farts, then it turns out my boyfriend and I have never met. [E!]
