Roseanne will officially continue without Roseanne Barr. ABC announced Thursday night that it greenlit a spinoff of the series called The Conners (working title) in which John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman will reprise the roles they had on Roseanne, ABC News reported. Barr, the creator and star of the original sitcom, which aired from 1988-1997, as well as the 2018 reboot, will have no financial or creative say over the new series.

Seriously, what is the freaking point? If you liked the show, then you probably liked the star. Either forgive her and do the show people wanted to see, or move on. I opt for the latter.

Jaded Roseanne Barr tearfully says "I've lost everything" in new interview

In an emotional interview, Roseanne Barr said she definitely feels remorse for the racist tweet that prompted ABC to cancel the revival of "Roseanne." In the interview, Barr claims she "never would have wittingly called any black person ... a monkey."

So she regrets the racism but not the crazy conspiracy theory crap she went on spouting after she got fired.

Roll eyes

IMO only a racist would even think to call anyone a monkey.
Get over yourself Ms. Barr.

Well yeah, she didn't face any financial consequences from the crazy conspiracy theory crap.

Also, that was a half-assed attempt at making the criticism appear anti-Semitic.

So she made herself a "hate magnet" but I notice she isn't expressing any empathy for Valerie Jarrett, Soros, the Clintons or any of the other magnets of her hate and the hate of the loony right wing. It's ok for her to spout hate against them for made up crap but somehow we're supposed to sympathize when she gets hate for the stuff she actually says? Not feeling it somehow.

Well it has had no adverse effect on President Trump. He spouted worse and now is the leader of the "free" World.

And this is exactly what made Roseanne think she could say what she wanted without any repercussions. She badly miscalculated there.
