Roseanne Barr Begged ABC Not To Dump Her Show, And There’s A Chance They’ll Bring It Back Without Her
It took Mickey Mouse approximately forty-five seconds to gather one of his biggest cash cows, the Roseanne revival, and shoot it out back after Roseanne Barr earned a place as KKK Monthly’s Person of the Year by comparing Valerie Jarrett to an ape. Even though Roseanne could’ve brought in $65 million in ad sales for its second season, ABC canceled it after one of its producers Wanda Sykes washed her hands of it and several cast members clutched their pearls while cooing, “I do declare, I am disgusted that Roseanne tweeted the kind of tweet she’s tweeted many times over the years!” Roseanne tweeted yesterday that she begged ABC to keep the show, and now TMZ is saying that ABC may keep the show but it’ll be Roseanne without Roseanne. So, NOseanne, I guess.
Roseanne said in a series of tweets (that are now gone) that she pretty much got on her hands and knees in front of the President of Disney-ABC Television Group, Ben Sherwood, and nearly reached “Bitch, I will suck yer dick” levels of desperation while begging him not to cancel her show.
I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends. I begged them not to cancel the show. I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right. I’d worked doing publicity 4 them 4 free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis. I begged 4 ppls jobs
Roseanne is still saying she thought Valerie was white, and after Ben Sherwood, who used to be a fan of her tweets, didn’t buy that excuse, she turned up the begging and offered to go to the hospital to have her meds checked. Ben should’ve let Roseanne do that, because the doctor would’ve obviously said, “It’s in my professional medical opinion that Ms. Barr was not in her right mind at the time and it’s the Ambien that gave her a touch of racist-itis.”
He said: what were you thinking when you did this? I said: I thought she was white, she looks like my family! He scoffed & said: “what u have done is egregious, and unforgivable.’ I begged 4 my crews jobs. Will I ever recover from this pain? omg I also told Ben Sherman that I would go in hospital to check my meds, bc the stress had made them less effective. I begged like 40 motherfuckers. Done now
She also said that she’s torn up on the inside over hurting Jayden Rey, the actress who played DJ Conner’s daughter.
I think I’ll b better tomorrow. The saddest part of all is 4 Jayden Rey on the show whom I grew2 love so much & am so ashamed of myself that she would ever think I do not love her bc she is African American. It’s the most gawd awful painful thing. I can’t let myself cave in tho
And Roseanne finally ended (for now) with this:
I end by offering everyone involved one more apology and prayers for healing of our divided nation. Tomorrow is Shabbat and I will continue to pray that everything for everyone goes forward & ends well for all. signing off twitter for a while. love u guys!

I’m guessing that Roseanne will sign back on in about one second to shit all over ABC and Sara Gilbert. Because TMZ says that ABC is into turning Roseanne into Darlene! They’re considering reworking the show to have Darlene as the star. Sara is talking to the other cast members to see if they’re into it, and apparently, John Goodman is really into it. And by “it” I’m assuming THAT CHECK.
A Roseanne reboot starring Darlene?! The thirst for money does make people go crazy. A Roseanne reboot starring Crystal or Roseanne’s cousin Ronnie? FUCK YES. A Roseanne reboot starring Aunt Jackie? Also into it. But not Darlene. If they’re going to bring it back, what they should do is recast Roseanne with someone like, I don’t know, Rosie O’Donnell. And then they should make Roseanne, I don’t know, hit her head and wake up as a full-on Hillary Clinton supporter. Do I want to see Rosie O’Donnell as Roseanne Conner? Not really. But do I want to see Trump’s head lift up off of his neck in a rage after he finds out that one of his biggest rivals has replaced one of his biggest supporters? What do you think!
