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.

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.… Read more »

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.

Matt Cohen Exits General Hospital

Dr. Griffin Munro, the former priest, is departing General Hospital as actor Matt Cohen made the decision to wrap his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

Cohen told TV Insider on his decision, “I did three years at the show. It was a great time and I had great fun playing the character, but I’m a guy who gets uncomfortable when he gets comfortable. I need to give Griffin a little rest right now. I talked to Frank (Valentini, executive producer). We’re leaving it very open-ended.”

The actor is now also focusing on directing and his first short film Mama Bear has been getting a solid response at film festivals

As to if he would return to his role as Griffin ever again, Matt teased: “Maybe I’ll pop into GH every once in a while? That’ll be up to Frank and the writers as to what we do.”

Matt came on to General Hospital back in 2016 and viewers learned that he was the son of Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan), and was put in the orbit and became dear friend of Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), Duke’s true love.  Later, Griffin became romantically involved with Ava Jerome (Maura West) and then her daughter, Kiki (Hayley Erin).

Look for Cohen to exit this Friday on the March 22nd episode of GH.

So, sad to know Matt is leaving GH? Share your thoughts via the comment section below
