13 Crazy Disney Channel Rumors That Were Proven False
Alyson Stoner was up for the main role in Hannah Montana
In one of their articles, Seventeen magazine made an error by claiming that Hannah Montana was originally a spin-off of That’s So Raven. They also mentioned that Camp Rock actress Alyson Stoner was in the running for the lead role in the series, but she eventually lost it to Miley. When Alyson caught wind of the article, she shared the link and called the magazine out for misreporting. It turns out that Alyson was originally slated to star in a totally different show and Raven spin-off, NOT Hannah Montana.
For the record, fans and other outlets have been spreading variations of this rumor for quite some time now. So basically, everyone had the details totally mixed up because no one directly addressed it. Unfortunately, it looks like the *real* story might be even more insidious than the one that was circulating.
