Raven-Symone (Raven Baxter) and Orlando Brown have had their share of beef, which may be the reason why the latter hasn't received any phone calls yet. Orlando Brown made headlines this year when he suggested that he had a romantic relationship with Raven-Symone and claimed that "The View" host got pregnant and aborted the baby.
As if that wasn't enough, Orlando Brown got on the wrong side of the law when he was arrested for allegedly striking his girlfriend. With "That's So Raven" being known as a family sitcom, this domestic situation may have potentially caused Orlando Brown to be replaced as Eddie in "That's So Raven" spinoff.
