During an appearence on the Dr. Oz Show, Roseanne Barr, formerly the star of Roseanne, spoke on her previous claims where she said she intended to move to Israel as soon as The Conners began on ABC. “I don’t want to be around, because, you know, I’ll get drawn into a negative thing of defending myself.”
According to Roseanne, she doesn’t want to be angry anymore when people mischaracterize her and make her look bad. However, the wounds are still fresh, and she finds the whole ordeal hard to work through.
“I want to stay away from it,” the actress remarked. Previously, the Roseanne alum appeared on the Rabbi Shmuley Boteach Podcast where she said she was leaving the United States for Israel when The Conners starts.
Via People Magazine, Barr said she wasn’t going to “curse it or bless it,” but instead, stay “neutral” in reference to The Conners. After admitting she was struggling with mental health issues, Roseanne joked, “After all, I was married to Tom Arnold.”
Roseanne lost her show on ABC following her racially charged tweets regarding the Barack Obama aide, Valerie Jarett. Later on, Roseanne gave up her rights to the show, and the network proceeded with a spin-off which she can’t benefit from financially or creatively.
As for her future plans, Roseanne, who’s of Jewish heritage, explained her intentions to study her Jewish background a lot more when she’s in Israel. She wants to be able to speak Hebrew, and fluently, as well.
This is just one day after Roseanne was the butt of a plethora of jokes while at the 2018 Emmy Awards. Colin Jost and Michael Che roasted middle America during their set as well, stating that only “ex-crackheads” thanked Jesus.
“Roseanne was canceled by herself, but picked up by white nationalists.” Jost remarked. Whether their jokes are funny or not, according to Fox News, the Emmy’s were down another 10% again this year.
