“During that time [while filming the original That's So Raven], I would get feedback from peers and work and everybody like, ‘You need to lose weight, you need to lose weight, and blah blah blah,’ ‘It’s not sellable,’ or whatever. And I’m just like, what? I’m so confused,” she told BuzzFeed News.

“Now we are finally able to embrace thicker body types, and I’m like, dang, I wish that was happening when I was on the show,” Raven continued. “I wouldn’t be so hungry.”

“It’s good to know that time evolves and that you can be a part of change even if you have to go through the pain to make sure somebody else has an easier time,” she added. “I understand that now.”

Raven’s Home premiered on July 21 on Disney Channel. Be sure to check it out!
