Roseanne Barr In Tears In First Interview Since “Roseanne” Was Cancelled: “I Horribly Regret It … I’ve Lost Everything”

In a pre-recorded podcast interview that occurred just days after Roseanne Barr found herself on the receiving end of ABC immediately axing her comedy reboot of “Roseanne”, following her offensive and racist tweet, the comedian breaks down when discussing what has happened.

Barr was a guest on her longtime friend, Rabbi Schmuley Boteach’s podcast.  Once they delved into the subject, Roseanne in tears expressed: “I horribly regret it.  I lost everything, and I regretted it, before I lost everything.  And I said to God, ‘I am willing to accept whatever consequences this brings because I know I’ve done wrong. I’m going to accept what the consequences are,’ and I do, and I have.”

As to what transpired that caused her to send out the racist tweet about former Obama administration advisor, Valerie Jarrett, an overcome Roseanne said, “I’m a lot of things, a loud mouth and all that stuff. But I’m not stupid for God’s sake. I never would have wittingly called any black person, (I would never had said) they are a monkey.  I just wouldn’t do that. I didn’t do that. And people think that I did that and it just kills me.  I didn’t do that. And if they do think that, I’m just so sorry that I was so unclear and stupid. I’m very sorry.  But I don’t think that and I would never do that. I have loved ones who are African-American, and I just can’t stand it. I’ve made a huge error and I told ABC when they called me.”

Roseanne blames her tweet on the Ambien she was taking, but says it was not an excuse for her actions:  “You know, sometimes you reread your tweets, especially Memorial Day weekend at 2 am, on Ambien. And that’s no excuse, but that is what was real.”

Listen to the podcast below.  Then, let us know what you think of Roseanne’s sentiments that she shared about the tweet that got her ousted by ABC, and thus called her to ultimately lose her show via the comment section below.

To be clear, it wasn’t just one Tweet. There were a whole slew of Tweets over the years which rose up to form a disturbing pattern of behavior. This was not the first time she compared an African American to an ape or a monkey. The dehumanization of a segment of humanity through language is dangerous and must not be tolerated.
That said, I am not even sure if this is about racism or about mental illness. If it’s the latter then shame on ABC for being so fool hearty to embark upon this reboot. Moreover, I really hope Roseanne Barr gets the help she so clearly needs.

As someone who has long suffered from mental illness…i do believe her…for i myself have said this things i never meant when i was down and i have done it a few times on this very site and was attacked for it…and some meds do have side effects-i was seriously ill and fell unconcious from meds i was on for depression and was rushed to hospital…a lot of people do not know the seriousness of mental illness and there isnt enough support for many of us who suffer from it…ABC and her costars and fans were too fast to judge RB and should have showed support for her even now when she needs it the most…what she said was wrong to many but many of their reactions to her was wrong too…

So sorry, Jimmy…..I had a short bout with depression when my boy died….I know the feeling of hopelessness and helplessness.
But, as yourself, I HAD to come out of it. I have a very strong will.
Roseanne, as far as I am concerned, is not as drastic, nor does she wishes violence on anyone….eg: Peter Fonda, Kathy Griffin, Madonna, Snoop Dog, Johnny Depp etc. these people belong in jail.
I understand that they are words….but words do hurt, Jimmy.
However, what I find frustrating is how that Samantha woman calling any woman the C-word, and the Wolf comedienne ridiculing people’s looks right in their face, still have a job.
The extreme, radical liberals are going too far. Threatening children is the lowest of the low……these cowards that crawl on their bellies belong in the depths of the SWAMP.
Protesting civilly is one thing….but, threatening violence; harassing people publicly and privately is a crime—even in the abstract.
Stay well, my friend.

RoseAnn as you know that the Flesh does things stupidly as you mentioned. Our mouth can get us into trouble. The bible even states the tongue is like a sword. However, it may be possible this is the door opening for God’s work. You became loved and hated by Hollywood/expectation???. Sometimes apologies does not work with people of pride, money or stubbornness. Maybe they aren’t God’s gifted. I’ve have apologies too many times for things I’ve said, while meaning something different. Forgive your self now and if these people forgive you great if not. Move on, There are billions of people in the universe. One God under 1 nation to please. Spread good words. I feel for Roseann, and I am not a fan of her Hollywood style. Though I love to see her turn her love & forgiveness to teaching, You can reach people that don’t know about God’s word and forgiving.

Beautifully said, Dee Duran. Roseann’s apology, as I said, was a little too late, in that,he should think before she speaks. As harry said, this was not the first time. One cannot plsy with fire and not expect to get burned at some point.
Firgiveness is a virtue. I forgive, albeit it is very hard for some…..and, that is what I meant .
By the same token, her apology was so very sincere, it is hard to listen yo it and not feel pity.
I ask again…..why is it Ok for some to say the most vile things and advocate violence and harassment, while others who say nasty, but otherwise stupid things get away with it. Yes, ugly eords insult and offend……violence, especially towards kids is sacrilegious.
Loved your very positive and encouraging words. We should all have your heart.

I truly apologize for the typos, Dee…..my siblings’s kids have invaded my home, LOL….had stolen a moment to pen a comment.

A little too late, Roseanne….should have thought about it before you tweeted. Were you drunk? Were you sick? Were you mentally ‘indisposed’ in some way? No…..now, suffer the consequences.
As callous as I may sound, anyone who harasses, infringes upon one’s civil liberties, gets in someone’s face, should all be held accountable.

‘The Bachelor’ New Key Art Revealed Playing Up Colton Underwood’s Virginity

The upcoming season of The Bachelor does not roll out till January, when season 23 gets underway on the 7th of that month, but ABC today released its key art first poster for promotion of their latest ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood.

Chris Harrison host and EP of the series, posted via Instagram: “It’s now officially official and I have the official exclusive poster to prove it. Colton’s dramatic season of #TheBachelor premieres Mon Jan 7th.”

The poster has the slogan: “What does he have to lose?” and one would assume its a nod to Colton’s noted and much discussed virginity.

Viewers first met Colton in Becca Kufrin’s season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he came in as fourth runner-up.  He continued on the franchise on Bachelor In Paradise, and his controversial on and off again relationship with Tia Booth, Becca’s friend.

Just how will Colton handle kissing a bevy of ladies, the fantasy suites, and more?  Guess we will find out,and if his season will be a doozy compared to the lackluster season of Arie Luyendk Jr., until Arie dumped his choice for love Becca and went back on his word and fell back in love with the runner-up  – his now fiancee and expectant mother of his chid, Lauren Burnham.

So, what do you think of the poster art for the new season of The Bachelor? Will you be checking out Colton during his effort to find true love? Comment below.

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.
