Crazy Hello Pot Meet Kettle! Roseanne Calls Male Sitcom Writers "Sexist"

Roseanne Barr is embroiled in a fight with sitcom writer Ken Levine, who has worked on shows such as "Cheers" and "Frasier," sparked by an article Barr wrote claiming that male television writers are sexist, reports New York Magazine's Vulture blog.

In her New York Magazine article, called "And I Should Know" and published last month, Barr wrote, "Male writers have zero interest in being nice to women, including their own assistants, few of whom are ever promoted to the rank of 'writer,' even though they do all the work while the guys sit on their asses taking the credit."

Levine, who never worked with Barr, writes in a blog post, "As a male writer I find that insulting. As a male I find that insulting. And so misguided and ridiculous that it doesn’t even warrant a rebuttal."

At another point in his post, he says Barr "treated people like ****. Routinely. Constantly. Knowingly."

Barr responded to Levine's post on her own blog, saying he doesn't have respect for her as a writer "[b]ecause that person is female, that's why." She concludes that she plans to ask several male writers to defend her in her blog. "Stay tuned," her post says.

This is the very problem I have with Rosanne. As far as I'm concerned she is a man hater and now a hypocrite. It's okay for her to be sexist when it comes to treating men like crap just because they are men (no valid reason), but she will call it sexist when a man treats a woman badly...or what she calls bad or unacceptable. She thinks that just because she's a woman men should kiss her ass? As a woman myself, I don't like that at all. Besides, if she doesn't work with him, then why does she even care?

I read the article, and it seems to me Roseanne still has a substantial amount of anger bottled up over many things. I think it is, for the most part, unfounded. Here is a woman that came from nothing and rose to be a major star, an extremely wealthy one to boot. (I once read her earnings from "Roseanne" were between $400 to $500 million.) So, what is the problem? Why write an article griping about things that happened more than 20 years ago? She holds a substantial stake in a series that reaps tons of syndication profits. Again, what is the problem?

She should be thankful she isn't like most people, who have to work a 9 to 5 job surviving on meager earnings. Instead, Roseanne has retired to a comfortable life in Hawaii. Count your blessings...and your money...and realize you are far more blessed than most, my dear.

Default During the height of "ROSEANNE"...

...she literally went through dozens of writers- mostly male- and it was her fault, not theirs, that they couldn't successfully work with her. Let's face it, Roseanne's acting abilities and comedic timing were sharp, but her ego always got in the way of capitalizing more on those talents. She's still the same "mess" she was over 20 years ago....and it's tellling when a major tabloid recently ran a cover story where she supposedly admitted, "Yes, I'm nuts".

Amen to that! She had a problem with working with the men so why didn't she just hire females only to work for her? Simple solution if you ask me. And I agree whole-heartily with lucyeths....she should be grateful for what she has!
