Roseanne Barr claims she’s gotten job offers & might come back to TV

Roseanne Barr promotes the new season of 'Roseanne' at The Wendy Williams Show

ABC did an okay thing when they fired Roseanne Barr from her rebooted sitcom. I’m not going to praise them for firing her, because I think most of us understood that it was a catastrophe in the making when ABC decided to reboot the show and give Roseanne Barr any kind of platform or legitimacy. ABC is part of Disney, which is one of the biggest companies and brands in the world. Of course they didn’t want to deal with Roseanne long-term, because despite corporations playing footsie with Donald Trump and the Deplorables, the corporations know that people like Roseanne are terrible for business. Of course, there are businesses out there who could definitely use Roseanne’s whackjob talents, like Breitbart or Fox News. So maybe that’s what this story is about?

Roseanne Barr claims she’s fielded several offers since the “Roseanne” reboot got the ax.

“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,” Barr, 65, said on the “Rabbi Shmuley Podcast” in an interview released Sunday. “I might do it, but we’ll see.”

Barr gave no other details on what offers she’s received, but did expound on signing away her personal proceeds from “Roseanne” for the upcoming “Conners” spinoff, saying that it was part of her Jewish faith to repent.

“I thought signing off of my own life’s work and asking for nothing in return, I thought that was a penance,” she said. “Sometimes you ask people what do you think should be done to you knowing what you’ve done wrong and it seems that people always know what should be done to them. 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.”

So, she could back on TV… something tells me it wouldn’t be on network television though. Maybe she really does have an offer from Fox News to do “commentary” on one of the prime time shows. Or maybe she’s gotten another offer for a cable reality show – remember when she had a reality show? People watched it. But I really and truly fear that Roseanne got some kind of job offer from Donald Trump. Hand to God. The headline about Roseanne being offered jobs came out at the same time as the headlines about Trump wanting to nominate a woman for the open Supreme Court seat. Justice Roseanne Barr. Trump would totally do that. If not SCOTUS, he would totally make her the new White House chief of staff. OH WAIT… Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving the press secretary post. That’s totally what it is. Roseanne Barr is coming back to TV… to do the daily White House press briefing. OMG.

    She and Dershowitz as co-anchors of a Fox a.m. show. Imagine facing that before coffee.

  2. Beth says:

    She slaughtered her career, and anyone who hired her would be ruining themselves and the network they work with. A commenter on Fux News is the only chance she’d have

    • Milla says:

      Woody is still making movies. So anything is possible. I don’t know if she has fanbase though

  3. Nicole says:

    The thing is, she’s probably not lying about this. Exaggerating, maybe. But not wrong.

    The only reason ABC canned her is because they thought it was going to make them look bad, not because they thought what she did was wrong. They and the rest of the cast were more than happy to conveniently forget all the racist trash that has been steadily coming out of her mouth for years because they all saw a big payoff for themselves.

    I’m sure there are any number of people waiting to “give her another chance”, and sooner or later someone will and she’ll get another opportunity to spew her hatred.

    • Honey says:

      Yep. As long as she makes money or a decent ROI, she’ll be placed somewhere, e.g., sitcom or talkshow on cable or Netflix.

  4. Lolo86lf says:

    Roseanne Barr totally belongs as a political commentator on Fox News and Friends Fair and Balance. She can go spew her racist venom for the deplorables’ eager consumption.

  5. RBC says:

    Actually if Rosanne was to replace Sarah Huckabee Sanders as press secretary that might be good television. I would love to watch April Ryan ask Roseanne questions at a press briefing.
    Roseanne would not be able to handle that!

    • Honey says:

      You know that would actually be a good PR move for Trump, a total disaster because she doesn’t have the temperament for it but a good PR move (with his base) for him.

  6. Indiana Joanna says:

    I think she’s done. Her pathetic meek cries for understanding and forgiveness are right next door to her continued vile, defiant Twitter comments. She’s horrible and is nuts.

    • Evie says:

      Roseanne may or may not be done. As someone mentioned up thread, Woody Allen is still going strong. And Mel Gibson, who has spewed vile, racist sentiments has managed to get his career back, though he has not returned to the levels he enjoyed at the height of his popularity in the 80s and 90s. So it remains to be seen, if Roseanne is well and truly done. Left to her own devices, she will self-implode.

      • jwoolman says:

        Roseanne may not be done, but she really needs to retire for a while, quit social media and especially twitter, and get the images raised by her vicious tweets out of people’s heads. And she needs loads more therapy. Please.

        She has talent but her internal problems have been getting in her way for years. Before social media, comedians and actors could be quietly awful in real life without most of us realizing it. But now they let it all hang out in public.

  7. Teresa says:

    Is getting some lame talk show on Infowars really considered getting a job on tv? Nope.

  8. lucy2 says:

    Go away, racist. We have no more time for you.

  9. Patricia says:

    She always has been and will remain a complete trash person. So yes I wouldn’t be surprised if the deplorables somehow manage to support her enough to make her feel like she still has a career. They love their trash persons.

  10. Naomi11 says:

    If she does, it will be nothing I care to watch.

  11. ravynrobyn says:

    Wait, what?!?! Is this nugget from her original interview that was recorded the day AFTER she was fired? She’s delusional enough to believe whatever makes her feel better in the moment. Whatever. She’s truly mentally ill and an evil entitled angry asshole. Good riddance!

  12. minx says:

    She’s just a sad hateful woman. I should feel sorry for her but I just can’t.
