Default Roseanne Barr reveals plans for her big comeback after being shunned by Hollywood

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbi...p-support.html

Quote:
After a tumultuous year and a half, which saw Roseanne Barr fired from her own successful sitcom revival, the star is stepping back on stage in a new comeback comedy tour.

Barr sat down exclusively with DailyMailTV's Jesse Palmer and reflected on the backlash she faced following her infamous 'Ambien tweet' and how excited she is to get back to stand-up comedy.

The 66-year-old is teaming up with friend and fellow comedian Andrew Dice Clay for the Mr. and Mrs. America Tour which kicks off September 19 at the Paramount Theater in Long Island, New York, followed by a show at the Hard Rock in Atlantic City, New Jersey on the 20th.

Roseanne told DailyMailTV that she was apprehensive about putting herself back out into the public eye after all that happened in the wake of her controversial tweet about Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett where she compared Jarrett to a combination of the 'Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.'

‘I was really nervous ... you know, really nervous,’ Roseanne told Jesse Palmer. 'Dice talked me into it. He goes, people are wanting to hear what you have to say. I said, I`ll do a couple, we`ll see how it goes.'

The comedy legend said the whole thing was 'nerve wracking' because she wasn't sure how she would be received by an audience or what they would 'expect' from her.

Much to her surprise and delight, when she joined Andrew Dice Clay on stage for a surprise five minute set, Roseanne said she was embraced by the audience.

'I love stand-up comedy and it's just a blast to be able to go do it and have backup in the form of another great comic,' the 66-year-old quipped with a smile.

For a time, the actress wasn't sure when she would be ready to get back in front of a crowd following her 2018 tweet. Roseanne was promptly fired by ABC after it and was effectively blacklisted by much of Hollywood.

At the time, Barr said she wasn't aware that Jarrett was black and revealed that she wrote the now-deleted post when she was in an Ambien fog.

Roseanne has eschewed the prescription sleep aid since the incident: 'I've been [Ambien] sober for a year and a half since I got fired. I haven't used Ambien and my life is really, really so much better and I really would like people to understand that.'

'That's a very powerful drug that does a lot of negative harm to people who use it. I haven't used it since my Ambien tweet and you've got to be real careful.'

She added: 'It makes you do whack stuff.'

While Barr's tweet proved cataclysmic for her sitcom's revival, she told DailyMailTV that it was actually her co-star Sara Gilbert's response tweet calling her comment 'abhorrent' that ultimately got Roseanne canned by the network.

'That's the tweet that got the show canceled to be honest,' Roseanne said.

The actress isn't in touch with any of her former co-stars and has no desire to confront Gilbert or try to smooth things over.

'When somebody just doesn't care how their actions affect you, what's there to talk about?' Roseanne said of her relationship with her former on-screen daughter. 'There's nothing to talk about.'

The Conner family has manged to survive after the departure of Roseanne with a spin-off show which is heading into its second season.

Barr doesn't watch the spin-off – she only watches the reruns of the original series - and actually called out ABC for using her tweet and subsequent firing 'as an excuse to steal [her] life's work.'

'When it happened it was like I thought I was gonna lose my life,' she recalled. 'It was devastating and horrible and is unprecedented too that they would do that to me.'

She feels like there is more to her departure from ABC than just the shocking social media post and wonders if there was some sort of conspiracy at play.

'It was a perfect storm,' she told Palmer. 'That's what I think, just the perfect storm at the perfect time. Kind of a little bit too perfect. Sometimes I think “was this orchestrated? The whole thing?”’

Barr reckons that her continued support of President Donald Trump played into ABC's decision to boot her.

'All of Hollywood, they just hate him and they hate those of us who like him. There is no way around it.

'So, yeah, I think they took me off because I liked him and I like him because I'm a Jew and he likes Israel,' Barr said matter-of-factly.

Trump seems to return Roseanne's affection and recently tweeted about her in the midst of his feud with Debra Messing.

'Bad “actress” Debra The Mess Messing is in hot water. She wants to create a “Blacklist” of Trump supporters, & is being accused of McCarthyism. Is also being accused of being a Racist because of the terrible things she said about blacks and mental illness,' the President tweeted on September 5.

He continued: 'If Roseanne Barr said what she did, even being on a much higher rated show, she would have been thrown off television. Will Fake News NBC allow a McCarthy style Racist to continue? ABC fired Roseanne. Watch the double standard!'

Barr wasn't aware of the feud but let out a genuine chuckle when Palmer read her the transcript of the tweets during their interview.

That same criticism has ironically followed Trump throughout his tenure in the Oval, though not from Roseanne.

'It's fun to go pop pop pop pop pop,' she joked while throwing mock jabs in the air. 'We have to do that if we want you know not be enslaved to them as a society today.'

Back in the late eighties and early nineties, Barr cemented herself as a sitcom legend playing Roseanne Conner, the outspoken matriarch of a working class family in a fictitious Illinois suburb.

The show co-starred John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, Lecy Goranson and Sarah Chalke.

Roseanne ran on ABC for nine seasons from 1988-1996 and then was revived in 2018.
