Only a week ago, Roseanne Barr bragged to her friend Rabbi Shmuley Boteach that she had traded in Roseanne’s famous couch afghan for a blanket woven from TV offers. Roseanne even promised that she’d be doing a TV interview very soon, her first since ABC fired her for her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett. But Roseanne’s first interview is going to be on YouTube instead of TV.
On Sunday, Roseanne announced her planned TV interview:
To my wonderful fans who I treasure and love-who have carried me these past weeks when I was 2 weak 2 carry myself: I will be doing a TV interview this week. I’ll tell u about it tomorrow!

Roseanne made good on her promise. The next day, she let all her fans know about her TV interview plans. Update: Not happening. Roseanne claimed that TV interviews were “too stressful” and “untrustworthy“.
After a lot of thought, I decided that I won’t be doing any TV interviews, too stressful & untrustworthy 4 me & my fans. I’m going to film it myself & post it on my youtube channel in the next week-the entire explanation of what happened & why! I love you all-sign up & get ready.

Instead, Roseanne will be taking to her YouTube channel, Roseanne Barr. Take a seat, Logan Paul – you’re about to become the second-biggest waste of bandwidth on the internet. Roseanne will, presumably, talk about getting fired and offer up a half-hearted apology for doing the kinds of things that fucked with the tracks on her gravy train. Or who knows? Maybe she’ll stick to her YouTube channel’s recurring theme of getting high and letting the camera roll, and her made-for-the-internet televised tell-all will involve her crapping all over ABC and stoner-denouncing the co-stars that did her wrong. “And you know what? (takes hit off bong) I never did like that damn couch. I know it was in cahoots with that brown fridge.”
