That's So Raven: 11 Ways Raven And Chelsea Have Made Their Friendship Last

We tend to replace most of our friend group every seven years, so if you're still BFFs with someone you met in 2003, consider yourself very lucky.

Disney's That's So Raven began 13 years ago and Raven Baxter (Raven-Symoné) and Chelsea Daniels (Anneliese van der Pol) have remained friends all this time, as evidenced by their recent reunion pic from Friday (March 11).

In honor of their reunion, we looked back at their ever-lasting friendship that's anything but nasty.

  1. For starters, they support the other's endeavors.

    In 2007, Raven visited Anneliese during her run as Belle in Beauty and the Beast on Broadway. And obviously, Anneliese was proud of her friend scoring the job as co-host on The View.

  2. And let each other know they're proud of the other's achievements.

    "Strawberries aside @ravensymone gave a beautiful tribute to Bayard Rustin. Very touching night. Long way to go #trailblazerawards #trailblazerhonors," Anneliese captioned this photo.

  3. They actually go out and do fun things, instead of just hanging out at someone's house all the time.

    In 2015, they attended opening night of the off-Broadway play The Way We Get By, starring Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski.

  4. And both support important causes together.

    Also in 2015, the actresses went to the GLSEN Respect Awards, which honors those who are role models and work to improve the lives of LGBT youth.

  5. They know how to make a birthday hella memorable.

    Anneliese wrote, "Best birthday ever. Raven made me cry. That bitch! ;) @ravensymone @tycegreen."

  6. And they're not afraid to call each other out on their bullshit.

    In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Anneliese said, "We're closer than ever ... We talk about everything and we really call each other out when we're messing up." True friends help keep each other in check.

  7. Sometimes, they get each other dope gifts.
  8. And remind each other they're beautiful.

    Anneliese shared Raven's pic on Facebook, with the sweet message, "Raven-Symoné Love you back girll!!!!! Happy belated Woman's Day... YOU RIGHT!!"

  9. They accept the other for who she is.

    In 2013, Anneliese shared a pic on Instagram with the caption, "#equality." Shortly after, Raven tweeted she could "finally get married" after the Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act.

  10. They've never forgotten where they came from.

    Last year, the besties sang the That's So Raven theme song onstage together. Anneliese had her own NYC solo show, and Raven appeared to support her home skillet biscuit. Oh snap!

  11. And they never, ever stop having fun.
