Raven-Symoné Subtly Throws Shade at Former Roommate Lindsay Lohan

During a clip for an upcoming episode of Oprah's 7,000th series about celebrities, Where Are They Now?, the artist formerly known as That's So Raven told Oprah that she stayed out of trouble as a child star because she didn't ask for attention when there was already a spotlight on her. Besides being true, was this statement a pointed barb at Lindsay Lohan?

To believe this theory, you must first remember that Raven-Symoné and Lindsay Lohan used to be roommates. Well, they sort of were: as Raven said to Us Weekly several years back of Lindsay, "She paid rent, and she was there probably three times." But besides the fact that Lindsay was M.I.A., the two don't seem to have any bad blood.

But that doesn't mean Raven's above judging Lindsay. In the Oprah interview – which airs in full Sunday evening – Raven starts off speaking generally about her choices, but takes a more judgmental tone at the end. "My parents taught me to keep my private life private to the best of my ability," she said, before adding:

Seeing all the child stars going off the edge, what I've learned [is] it's unnecessary to go to the most popular restaurant in the world when you have a scandal on your head and then get mad that someone's going to take a picture of you. That's your fault boo boo. Stay in the house.

Weird story here.

I'm an attorney and I've done a lot of work on document review projects. This means I've spent a lot of time going through the work emails of higher-ups in companies involved in law suits. One time I came upon an email that had 23 attachments. What were they? Well, they were 23 different pictures of Raven Symone in lingerie.

Twenty three. Sexy pictures. Of a former child star. In a man's work email.

Doc review is the worst, but just occasionally it's so weird that it's the best.
