Will Roseanne Barr make her way back to the small screen? During her appearence on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast, the 65-year-old comedienne revealed she had been “offered so many things” ever since she posted the tweet about Valerie Jarett.
In case you missed it, Roseanne published a tweet comparing the former Barack Obama aide – a black woman – to the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet Of The Apes.
When Roseanne spoke with the host, she said there was a silver lining to every bad story. The Roseanne alum said she felt “excited” because she had been getting offers despite the controversial nature of her firing from ABC.
“And I almost accepted one really good offer to go back on TV,” the comedienne explained. “I might do it,” she stated but didn’t reveal what offer she had been given or the nature of the project.
As it was previously reported, Roseanne tried to backtrack on her tweets, stating that she thought Valerie “was white.” Following ABC’s cancelation of her show, the network created a spinoff without Barr.
Furthermore, Barr said she didn’t ask for any money when she signed away the right to her television series, believing that the action was a way of paying for her wrongdoings.
According to the actress, she knew it was the right thing to do. Roseanne’s appearence on the podcast was the first time she had done an interview since receiving the ax at the order of the ABC CEO, Channing Dungey.
When Barr teared up as she talked about losing her show and reputation, she stated that she didn’t want to give a series of excuses, but instead, wanted to repent for what she had done.
Following her tweet, Roseanne asked her followers not to defend her because she did something that was “egregious.” “I don’t want to be defended,” the actress remarked.
