Cory and Victor Baxter headed to the White House when Cory in the House — a That’s So Raven spinoff series — premiered on Disney Channel in 2007!
Starring Kyle Massey, Madison Pettis, Maiara Walsh, Jason Dolley, John D’Aquino and Rondell Sheridan, the show followed chef and Baxter family patriarch, Victor (Rondell), as he and his son, Cory (Kyle), moved to Washington D.C. The father-son duo lived in the White House while Victor worked as the President of the United States’ head chef. While his dad was at work, Cory often found himself in various schemes thanks to friends Newt (Jason) and Meena (Maira). Together, the trio was constantly trying to outsmart the president’s daughter, Sophie (Madison). After two seasons on the air, Cory in the House came to an end in September 2008.
While the stars have gone on to star in a bunch of other TV shows and movies, they’ve all stayed close. In fact, Madison has actually shared a few reunions with her former costars on social media over the years. In September 2017, she and Maiara posed for a selfie shared via Snapchat. “Cory in the House reunion,” the Game Plan alum captioned her post. “Sophie and Meena 10 years later.”
Then, two months later, she also ran into Jason. In a December 2017 Instagram Stories post, the former Disney stars posed for a sweet picture. “Look who I ran into,” Madison wrote. “Sophie and Newt reunited.”
As for Kyle, he and Madison shared an Instagram snap in September 2016. “#OMFG got to hug my sis @madisonpettis tonight,” he captioned the pic.
Following their Cory in the House days, Jason went on to star as P.J. Duncan in another Disney Channel show, Good Luck Charlie. Madison, for her part, made a major name for herself in Hollywood and even nabbed a role in the 2021 Netflix movie He’s All That. Maiara has also acted in various TV shows over the years. The star of the show, Kyle, continued his acting career before getting into some legal trouble in June 2021.
According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly at the time, the Disney alum was charged with communicating with a minor for immoral purposes after allegedly sending suggestive messages to a teen girl. He was first sued for allegedly sending the messages in 2019, but the case did not proceed. The docs also reported that the claims were being investigated since February 2020. Kyle denied the claims following both lawsuits. His attorney claimed in a June 2021 statement to TMZ that the actor “became aware of his charges yesterday through the media, and he maintains that the allegations are motivated by revenge because the accuser didn’t succeed in her 2019 civil suit,” noting that Kyle “intends to aggressively defend these accusations again and will seek civil damages from those that refuse to hear the facts. … We plan to seek an early dismissal finally putting this bad behavior to rest.”
