Favorite "Cosby" kid to perform at CenturyTel Center

It's a tough call when trying to decide who's the cutest from their early days on "The Cosby Show."

Rudy or Olivia? The world may never know.

My original answer is Rudy. She set the bar high in her early days. She was the original kiddo holding her own against heavyweight comedian Bill Cosby.

But then there is Olivia ... oh, how she could make me laugh. Even in the final years, when the show was a little less interesting than it had been years before, Olivia was the highlight.

But when we consider post-"Cosby Show" success, there really is no contest. Keshia Knight Pulliam's (Rudy) greatest accomplishment was a season of "The Mole." And she didn't even win the game.

Raven-Symone has created an empire, with a little help from the Disney Channel. She's built film and TV credits and is one of the kids pulling in big bucks for the Disney network. Symone is hitting the road in promotion of her new album, and her tour includes a June 24 date at the CenturyTel Center.

Symone will perform with special guests Mitchel Musso, B5 and Clique Girlz. Fans are invited to wear their favorite pajamas and come early for pj party activities.

Tickets are $29.50 to $49.50 and go on sale Saturday. Purchase tickets for the show at the CenturyTel Center box office, by phone at (318) 741-9700 or online at

Rudy was too matter of fact. Olivia was much more innocent and funny. She was also wayyy cuter. Rudy had that huge gap in her teeth.

Olivia is the way to go. But wasn't she a granchild to Cosby? See, maybe her character was more sweet and innocent than Rudy because she was the grandchild. You know, grandkids can do no wrong sort of thing.

Step-granddaughter. I don't know how that changes anything.

In addendum, Rudy did have way funnier friends. That fat kid was awesome.

It CAN change everything, but in my experience it's no different. I think Bill Cosby would agree.

There was one really skinny kid ... Bill Cosby acted like he didn't like him. I can't remember if he was Olivia or Rudy's friend.
