Roseanne

Roseanne Barr, once known for her eponymous sitcom but now mostly just known for vocalizing extremely moronic and racist remarks, has returned to continue smearing that sitcom’s legacy with yet another soliloquy. This time, Barr has targeted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the progressive political leader and activist who recently became the youngest woman in history to serve in the U.S. Congress. In a clip […]

Mo’Nique is out here once again defending her girl Roseanne Barr in a new interview with the Chicago Tribune. While talking about her dream of having a new talk show, the comedian called Barr her “sister” and explained why she couldn’t turn her back on the former ABC star. Here’s an excerpt of the conversation: That’s why, when people […]

The Conners, to my surprise, premiered Tuesday night. Marking the continuation of the since-canceled Roseanne revival, original series star and executive producer Roseanne Barr marked the occasion (which, as expected, included the death of Barr’s character) with a predictable tweet about being alive. Barr also shared a full-length statement on the Conners premiere in conjunction with friend Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. “While we wish the […]

Can Roseanne thrive without Roseanne? We’ll find out when The Conners premieres in October. The working-class sitcom stars the same cast as last season’s highest-rated show — John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, etc. — with one major exception: Roseanne Barr, who was fired by ABC over “abhorrent” comments she made on Twitter. She won’t be creatively or financially involved with the Lanford-set spinoff, and […]

In the wake of Roseanne Barr’s firing from her own show revival on ABC, the network and the rest of the cast is moving on with a Roseanne-less spinoff, The Conners. Even a date has been set for the series’ continuation, but when it comes to determining what precisely will happen to explain the titular character’s absence, no one is willing […]

Roseanne Barr is scheduled to appear on Thursday’s edition of Fox News’ “Hannity” in what will be her first TV interview since being fired by ABC over racist tweets. Sean Hannity made the announcement on his show Tuesday night. Barr was fired by ABC in May and her revived sitcom “Roseanne” was summarily canceled after she […]

It’s almost as if she likes stepping in doo-doo … on purpose! We’re referring to Roseanne Barr who, for some unknown reason, won’t just leave well enough alone regarding the situation she put herself in when she sent out a racist tweet about former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett in May. We’ll bring you the latest in a moment. […]

Jerry Seinfeld believes that ABC was doing the most when it fired fellow comic Roseanne Barr over her tweet that compared a black woman to an ape. In an interview with ET Monday about the season premiere of his “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” on Netflix, the 64-year-old said: “I didn’t see why it was necessary to fire her. Why […]

Roseanne Barr is still apologizing for her racist tweets that led to her ABC show being cancelled. In a phone interview with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, Barr said she feels her comments were misunderstood but knows that they were hurtful regardless of what she meant. “It’s really hard to say this but, I didn’t mean what they […]

Looks like ABC is not about to let the Roseanne revival die, even after its titular star, in a state of allegedly Ambien-fueled racism, sent out a tweet describing former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes. According to the Associated Press, the canceled Roseanne revival will now be revived […]

Roseanne Barr, whose wholly unnecessary Roseanne revival was thankfully canceled last month, has praised Kanye West‘s eighth solo album Ye as “the greatest thing ever.” In a series of tweets late Wednesday, several of which have since been removed, Barr thanked fans for praying and whatnot following ABC’s Roseanne chop. “I’ve been using this time2 reflect &2 gain insight on what I said & […]

The original Roseanne ran for nine seasons. The rebooted Roseanne made it 10 episodes before getting the boot, after star Roseanne Barr wrote a racially charged tweet about Obama advisor Valerie Jarret. ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey, who issued a statement condemning Barr’s “abhorrent” and “repugnant” Twitter statement, canceled the show, but the non-Barr actors, including John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, and Sara […]
