Roseanne Barr Announces She Will Be Giving Her First TV Interview Since ‘Roseanne’ Cancellation

News on Sunday, and to kick off the week, once again was made by Roseanne Barr herself on Twitter. 

This time, however, she is not putting out a racist tweet that caused her to lose her sitcom, but instead wanted to alert her fans that she has a TV interview coming up.

Barr stated: “To my wonderful fans who I treasure and love-who have carried me these past weeks when I was 2 weak 2 carry myself: I will be doing a TV interview this week. I’ll tell u about it tomorrow!”

Now everyone is guessing just which show, or outlet, is Roseanne giving her first TV interview, too? Since Roseanne was cancelled the only ‘appearance’ Barr has made is on her friend, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast.

ABC recently announced a Roseanne spinoff minus Barr, The Conners, will debut this fall. It will star original cast members: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, and Sara Gilbert, along with Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman.

So, who do you think will be chatting with Roseanne? Who will be interviewing her first on TV? Do you care what she has to say about? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Maybe 60 Minutes? Ellen? I do want to watch because even though she had a slip of the tongue (and fingers), I still like her. I don’t want to see her with nothing.

I actually believe that she didn’t realize the woman was black. I’m not sure I would have known by looking at her. Could be that it was an insult, yes, but not a racial one.

I really enjoyed the reboot of her series, and I will watch the interview. (I didn’t care for the original series).

The Talk??? Interviewed by Sarah Gilbert???…..anyway as a person who suffers from depression you can say stupid things on your worse days…i have…and i have been called some terrible stuff since i was five years old…not sure if she should had been dropped from her show or not when others can make a comeback for doing stupid stuff!!!!…not saying it was right what she said, just saying there needs to be support for those who suffer from mental illness!!!

Roseanne can give all the interviews she wants. It doesn’t change the fact that The Conners (minus Roseanne herself) will debut on ABC in the Fall.

Hey…just saying.

Later.

Well she did not threaten a child of a sitting President the people in this country have gone mad absolutely mad !

I’ll go with Megyn Kelly, as she’s desperate for ratings and always willing to let a pariah have a platform. No doubt that Roseanne will plead mental illness and be deemed worthy of another (another another) chance.

There have been plenty who have been given another chance. Including many black performers who seem to get away with racist/anti-semitic crap all the time. If we’re going to “punish” people than it needs to be across the board.

My heart doesn’t exactly bleed for a racist millionaire, however she falls into the mix. “Other people do it” isn’t a defense.

I don’t believe she’s racist and I don’t believe she knew the woman was black. As I said on a previous post I wouldn’t have known it had I not been told. I think the “joke” was more insulting to her looks be she white, black or polka dot.

With that said, I didn’t say “other people do it is a defense.” What I did say, and feel, is that black people need to be called out for their racist comments, programming, “humor” too. As do anti-semites. There are many actors, rappers, etc who get away with way too much and the supposed “white ‘privileged” are held to a higher standard. Not buying it.

Why do you believe that? Why are you giving her the benefit of the doubt when she has said many racist things before? You can seriously be equating the racism that people of color experience in this country with what rich white people experience? Tell me I’m reading that wrong and that you’re not a racism apologist.

You can keep your name calling and judgments to yourself. I’m not going to get into a “white privilege” conversation with you, I have no idea if you’re white, black, Asian or otherwise. What I WILL tell you is yes, I believe racism goes in many directions. And as a Jewish person, I’ve found many anti-semetic comments made by black people who don’t get called on it. So, they’re allowed to spew anything they want, but if you DARE say something that offends them it’s an assault against humanity.

You wanna compare the Holocaust to slavery? Want to compare how many Jews were also not allowed in country clubs and certain businesses, etc. Nothing was handed to Jewish people; they worked for whatever they had. They weren’t let in to the “good ol’ boys” club even if they were considered “white.” Or country clubs. And, yet, because Jewish people are seen as successful and white they’re supposed to take all the anti-semetic crap aimed at them and APOLOGIZE if they’re successful. They’re supposed to hang their heads in shame if people are against Israel. So, no, I’m not crying for any racist comments made toward any other group until many in that same group decides to let go of their own racist/religious bias and venom.

Know what? Jews marched in the civil rights movement; died in it. Jews were instrumental in funding the NAACP. Know what they got for that? More percentage of American blacks are anti-semetic than whites.

Recently, a Jewish lawyer went off on a Spanish speaking person in a food market. He insulted them and told them to learn English. Went on some tirade. Know what happened next? The video went viral and hundreds (thousands?) of people gave out his home address, surrounded his house, threatened him and I believe he lost his job.

Let’s compare that to this scenario which happened about a week later. A Jewish man was standing on a NY subway. A black woman who was also standing, got upset because none of the other passengers would give their seat to a black woman who came on to the train with her children. Oh, and by the way, all the passengers were black, too. Know what the black woman did? She started screaming, “I bet if JEWS walked in you’d give them your seat. Ya’ll would give your seat to JEWS…” She then went on some rant about Jewish people in general, aiming her bile at the Jewish man who was minding his own business. He asked her to please stop. She continued. He told her she was being racist and there’s no need. She called him some name and told him she’d have to “school” him because talking about Jews is not “racist.” She went on and on; one nasty, anti-semetic comment after another. The Jewish man just let her rant, tried to calm her down to no avail. Guess what happened? The video went viral…but…There were no recriminations against the anti-semite. There was no trying to find out where she lived or surrounding her house and trying to humiliate her to all corners of the world; wherever the video could reach. Why ? Because anti-semetism just doesn’t get a reaction. Anti semetism? Holocaust deniers? “Get over it.” No reaction from the people who are so aghast at the supposed racism directed at “minorities.”

I am SICK of the double, triple standard. So, do NOT go calling me any names. You want to cry for the victims of racism? The poor victims who never utter a nasty word about any group? The “innocents?” Go ahead. Make yourself feel like you’re a compassionate human being fighting for the underdog.

I, on the other hand, will not fall prey to people like you trying to make me feel something I don’t. I “feel” much compassion, empathy for true victims; regardless of race, religion, etc. I FEEL for people who are helpless, injured emotionally or physically, etc. I fight for the underdog, whomeover he/she/they may be. But I’m not jumping on board and getting all riled up when one group always seems to cry racism while they spew their own venom and get away with it, whether it be lyrics, comedy, public relations, TV shows, characterizations, etc.

Wanna talk about police brutality. too? Do you have any idea how many white victims of police brutality there are? A lot; the media just doesn’t publicize it. But we can talk about the white girl on the beach a few weeks ago who had her head slammed a number of times by cops. or the deaf, white boy who didn’t hear the officer’s instructions and tried to raise his hands to explain but was shot dead.

Black Lives Matter? Do you know how many Jewish people march in those things? In my opinion? Too many. But when the “march” fell out on a Jewish holiday and the Jewish people requested that it be on another day so they could march with them, they were rejected. Date wasn’t changed. Same for a womans’ march. The Jewish participants couldn’t march because I believe it fell out on Yom Kippor, the holiest day of the year. Guess what. It went on anyway; without them. Happens in baseball, too. I’ve never seen blacks march for Jews. I’ve never seen blacks fight against anti-semetism; but as is the Jewish (many times liberal way ) we fight for everyone. No one fights for Jewish people.

Do I think Roseanne knew? NO I DON’T. She has a big mouth and she’s out there but she’s not stupid. I don’t believe that she’d actually compare someone she knew was black to an ape. Just don’t. I think she thought the woman resembled one; one can have features that would remind them of an ape, a puppy, a rabbit, etc. So, yes, that’s what I said she thought; that’s what I believe.

Now, in another scenario if it can be proven that Roseanne knew; of course it was wrong. Wrong is an understatement. It’s wrong even if she didn’t know, because it was still insulting the woman’s looks and I’m not a fan of hurting one’s feelings. However, that doesn’t change my original statement. I don’t think she knew. If people are going to lose their jobs over racist comments toward black people then others should lose theirs over anti-semetic comments, anti-white, Asian comments, etc. Don’t think that? Want to give a pass to others insulting Christians, Jews, Asians, gays, because it just doesn’t mean the same if you’re considered “white”? That’s on you.

Done.

Yes, anyone of any class and heritage can be racist and they’re all wrong for it. But this woman has the president’s ear, lots of twitter followers and millions of Americans watching her show. She has influence that the average person does not. Calling up other examples of racism by other people doesn’t change the fact that Roseanne is a racist.

You should be worried about what comes out of the President’s mouth. THAT’s a concern. Breitbart Bannon (though cast out but not off), the alt right (who by the way marched and chanted “Jews shall not replace us” but, that, of course, barely got mentioned.) The Confederate statues and what it represents about slavery somehow overshadowed that the neo nazis were marching in typical Nazi fashion decrying Jews…But, where was the public outcry about that?

So, since you agree “anyone of any class, heritage can be racist” maybe you should consider that when a derogatory comment comes out of the mouths of any of those other “class, heritage,” groups. Because so far all I see is defending what’s “trendy” to defend.

And, lest I repeat it again, I don’t think Roseanne knew. But Halle Berry knew what she was saying when she made a “joke” about herself with a “Jewish nose” in one of her photos. Funny; I didn’t see her popularity wane or any gasps from the world.

And I don’t think, as I said, that Roseanne is a racist. But maybe we should be boycotting Farrakhan, select black rappers, etc.

While we’re at it, are you referring to institutional racism or racism? Because an individual who has an animosity, a feeling that ANY person/group who is different from their own, religion, color, etc can be racist. So, again, let’s see the pendulum swing in all directions. Until then, it’s just one-sided hypocrisy.

I like Rosanne but she made a mistake.

Nope. Don’t care. That woman has always had a big mouth. I think she got exactly what she deserved. When she grabbed her crotch and spit after that horrible version of the Star Spangled Banner in San Diego many years ago, that was it for me. I was done with her. I’m glad ABC is done with her too. We have too much hate in this world as it is. Don’t need her using her celebrity status as a pass to insult people anytime she want and getting away with it. I’m she is sorry, but only because she was called out on it and list her job over it.

Kimberlin Brown ‘Killed-Off’ as Sheila Carter on The Bold and the Beautiful in Shocking Twist

The Monday, February 26th episode of CBS daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful brought with it the apparent end to one of the all-time villains of soap opera.

In story, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) was being stalked by Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) in the dark. Eventually, Steffy stabs Sheila in the heart with a knife and she apparently dies.

Speaking with TV Insider, Brown admitted that it is extremely hard to leave a now iconic role she made soap-famous since 1990 on first The Young and the Restless and then The Bold and the Beautiful.

Kimberlin expressed: “It’s a tough place for me to be in right now; I’m not going to lie about this. I guess if anyone were going to take Sheila down, I’m happy it’s Steffy. I just wish that no one was taking Sheila down.”  Three time Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood expressed: “It’s bittersweet because I absolutely love working with Kimberlin; she is just the consummate professional.”

However, the stabbing is vindication for Steffy as Wood related, “This is her moment. How long has it taken Steffy to take her down and it’s finally happening, so it’s going to be a big shock.”

As to her B&B death scene and to her future plans, Brown revealed, “Laying there on that floor when the paramedics pronounce the time of death, my eyes were closed and you’re holding your breath so it doesn’t look like you’re breathing. It was just like, ‘Wow, OK, I guess we’ll have to see what might come next for me.’”

Courtesy/CBS

If this holds up and Sheila is “dead” dead, it will open up the story and trouble in the marriage of Finn (Tanner Novlan) and Steffy, because ultimately, Steffy killed her husband’s biological mother.

This is leading many to believe this move will bring Steffy back together with Liam (Scott Clifton) while Finn and Hope (Annika Noelle) draw closer. Is that part of the reason for Sheila’s death? Stay tuned.
