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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

Fox Announces Primetime Soap ‘Monarch’ On Fall Schedule

You remember the tawk of the multi-generational musical drama about America’s first family of country music that was supposed to air in January?  Well, eventually due to Covid-19, the plans for its debut got scrapped from a two-night premiere set for Sunday, January 30 as a midseason replacement and kicked back to the fall.

Now, Fox has confirmed that Monarch is indeed on their fall schedule during its annual Upfront presentation on Monday.

The soapy series stars Oscar winner, Susan Sarandon as the Queen of Country Music Dottie Cantrall Roman, and her husband Albie Roman played by country singer, Trace Adkins.

In story, Dottie and Albie have created a country music dynasty. But even though the Roman name is synonymous with authenticity, the very foundation of their success is a lie. And when their reign as country royalty is put in jeopardy, heir to the crown Nicky Roman played by Anna Friel, will stop at nothing to protect her family’s legacy, while ensuring her own quest for stardom.

No word yet from Fox on what night of the week Monarch will land on the full fall schedule.  Stay tuned.

So, glad that Monarch will finally makes it debut? Does it interest you … or sound like another Nashville mixed with Dallas retread? Comment below.

The CW Cancels ‘Dynasty’; Show Will End With Current Fifth Season

As some had suspected, with ailing ratings and virtually no promotion, the CW’s reboot of Dynasty has been canceled.  The primetime soap will end at the end of its current fifth season, meaning no season six as die-hard fans and the cast and crew had hoped for.

Dynasty has been a soap on steroids, with snappy dialog, over-the-top storylines, and some wonderful performances especially from series lead, Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon).  Elizabeth tweeted upon the news of the cancellation: “SO PROUD OF MY BEAUTIFUL DYNASTY FAMILY!!”

According to Deadline, the show had been kept in production partly because of the revenue it generated with its deal with Netflix.

The cast includes: Daniella Alonso as Cristal Carrington, Elaine Hendrix as Alexis Carrington Colby, Rafael de la Fuente as Sammy Jo Jones, Sam Underwood as Adam Carrington, Michael Michele as Dominique Deveraux, Robert Christopher Riley as Michael Culhane, Sam Adegoke as Jeff Colby, Maddison Brown as Kirby Anders, Adam Huber as Liam Ridley, Eliza Bennett as Amanda Carrington and Grant Show as Blake Carrington.

CW’s Dynasty was the reboot of the classic 80’s ABC primetime version, which aired from 1981-1989, with a modern twist to several of the characters and stories.

So, sad to know there will be no more Dynasty on the CW? Do you think the show could be shopped somewhere else? Comment below.
