Children’s Letters to Raven-Symone VII


Click the “Children’s Letters to Raven-Symone” category at the right for previous entries, which give a fuller background. The basics: Kids and stupid adults think that if a Web site mentions a famous person, the site must somehow be connected to that celebrity, and they write in, asking for the famous person’s e-mail address. Tired of being pestered by inane requests, I made up a fake e-mail address for Raven-Symone and posted it here, with a clear disclaimer explaining that it was fake. Predictably, people used it anyway.

Now, of course, the e-mail address has spread. I suspect that most of the people who write to it now did not find it here on, but on some other site, perhaps on Raven-Symone message boards or chat rooms or wherever it is you kids hang out nowadays. Those people can be excused for thinking it’s a viable address, as they did not see the context in which I posted it. So we don’t mock their letters for being mis-sent. We mock them only for being illiterate and hilarious.

[The following three e-mails all came from the same person, who I believe has written before, too, also claiming to be Raven’s cousin — a cousin who has no way of actually contacting her.]

Dear Raven-symone,
I am very sorry to take up your time, but I my client, Alexander [last name], would be perfect for your show. He’s African American, age 11, very intelligent, very cute, and overall a fun and great actor. If you give him a chance, I know your show will be even greater. Please give this young gentleman a huge opportunity, he will be a success. I know that he will bring great energy to your show. I know that you are very intelligent, and a great producer within the That’s so Raven show, please give this name to your producers if possible.
Again I am sorry to take up your time, but I think that this will be a very great chance for him and for the show. I know that most likely this won’t get to you, but at least I tried. I hope this makes it to you. Thankyou for your time.
Danielle [same last name as “client”]
You can reach me at [phone number]

[The following is one of the creepiest things I’ve ever read. Remember that Raven is 20 years old and plays a high school student on her show.]

How are you? Good I Hope.
How are yourself and family doing? Hope their doing alright. Well My Name is Gene, And, Currently Live in Brooklyn, NY. And the reason of Emailing you is to tell you how much of a beautiful person you are. I really find you Adorable, attractive, and so…so…cute. I honestly don’t want to come off as a fan, but I do admire your history and the talent you posses. You seem to be one special person, and I would like to get to know the real you sometime. on camera your the apple of your mothers eye, but in all honesty I would like the know the real Raven. like what makes you laugh, what makes you cry. Does Love do come around twice. Is life the most ideal gift to have, or is living in the spot light is what life is really known to be the newest trend. Well as for me I’m an upcoming music producer, and in as little of 7 weeks will obtain my A+ and Network+ certification in computer engineering. so I have a lot of “irons in the fire” Nerveless I’ve seen the blog’s and fan sites that they have of you, and I’m not sure on going on “here say” i would like to stare into that person’s eye’s hear what they have to say. and build a truthful understanding and knowledge about that person. Especially you Raven. When you available feel free to email me back ASAYC (As Soon As Your Comfortable).
Stay blessed.
Gene [last name].
