We have learned that Roseanne Barr is coming back to the small screen! However, it seems like the woman is not over the moon about it! In fact, she is completely miserable!
The 65-year-old actress has been confirmed to be shooting a reboot of her original 1988 show that will have no more than eight episodes!
One insider on the set told us that Roseanne has been protesting about having to star in it even though such a small number of episodes should not be so difficult of a project.
‘Things on set are exactly the same. Roseanne’s complaining that she’s miserable and being overworked,’ our source dished.
It looks like the main reason why the actress feels like it’s so much it’s not that she is no longer as young as she used to be.
The real reason why she’s so out of it might be the long time she spent away from the spotlight. Is she really still cut for the Hollywood life?
‘She is not particularly excited about the comeback of her show and if Sara Gilbert had not put the entire thing together, she’d be perfectly happy tweeting from the comfort of her home and counting her money,’ the insider explained.
Speaking of money, allegedly, ‘No one’s making a lot of money for the reboot and budgets are kept really tight.’
In addition to making so little money and overworking herself, Roseanne is also annoyed that she is no longer treated like a superstar like in the past.
‘If the reboot’s a big hit do not expect Roseanne to return for yet another season unless someone writes her a fat check. She is not doing this for her health,’ the insider stated.
Are you excited to see Roseanne on the small screen once again after so many years or not? What do you think about her lack of enthusiasm for this project?
