What do lesbians bring on the second date? A U-Haul. It's an old joke. Raven-Symoné is a reportedly a lesbian and has moved in her girlfriend, AzMarie Livingston, into her $11,000-a-month NYC apartment. If AzMarie's name rings a bell, it's because the androgynous beauty (pictured, above, inset and below) was a contestant on the current season, er, cycle of America's Next Top Model. According to the National Enquirer, Raven-Symoné's family has yet to come to terms with the actress' sexual orientation, but the 26-year-old, who has previously denied lesbian rumors, is in love and doesn't care what they -- or you, for that matter, think. "When her family found out [that Raven-Symoné and AzMarie are shacking up], they blew their stack and it's created a gay scandal for Raven," a source says. "She told her parents she loves them but her home -- especially her bedroom -- is nobody's business, and she was not going to back down, so they needed to accept it, period." We know that's right. BTW: How You Doin', Raven-Symoné!
UPDATE, May 18: Raven-Symoné took to Twitter to all but confirm she's a member of the Rainbow Coalition. Pay careful attention to the words she chose.

Update, July 26: According to the Enquirer, Raven-Symoné and AzMarie are talking marriage and want first lady Michelle Obama to officiate. We don't know who the Enquirer got that information from, but it's ridiculous. That is all.
Update, Aug 2, 2013: Raven confirmed she's a lesbian and she plans to get married. To AzMarie? We're not sure. She made the announcement on Twitter -- of course!
She's kinda of late? No? The US Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) on June 26 -- more than a month ago -- and same-sex marriage became legal in New York on July 24, 2011. Did Raven just get the news? (Or did she move to Rhode Island or Minnesota, where gay marriage became legal today?) We have so many questions. But we really don't give a damn. Bye.
