Roseanne Barr Teases Return To TV: “I Already Have Been Offered So Many Things”Published on July 3, 2018.
For the second time, Roseanne Barr is opening up about her life since the Roseanne revival was cancelled and ABC moved ahead with a spinoff, The Conners, without her.
In a new interview on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast, the 65-year-old star teased that the cancellation doesn’t mean she is disappearing from TV. She revealed on the podcast she has has already been offered a lot of things she posted a racist tweet that led to the end of Roseanne.
“Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen, and I feel very excited because I already have been offered so many things, and I almost accepted one really good offer to go back on TV,” she remarked.
She then teased, “I might do it,” but did not go into further detail, saying “But we’ll see.”
Barr also opened up on the podcast about ABC and her costars working on The Conners and revealed that she didn’t want or ask for any money when she signed away the rights to Roseanne.
“I thought signing off of my own life’s work and asking for nothing in return, I thought that was a penance,” she explained.
“I just knew that was the right thing and I want to do the right thing because I’ve lived my life, most part of it, to do the right thing for all people, not just Jews,” she continued.
She added that she has not personally apologized to Valerie Jarrett, who was the subject of her racist tweet, stating she has been “praying for the right words.”
In a previous interview with Boteach on the podcast, Barr became emotional when talking about the tweet, saying, “I ask people if you look at my tweet don’t defend me. I’ve done something egregious and I don’t want to be defended. I don’t want to get any more racism going from what I did, I don’t want that. I don’t want to be defended.”
