Roseanne Barr tried it again with her Ambien defense when chatting with charlatan Dr. Oz in a just released a teaser trailer for a full-length interview on The Dr. Oz Show, which sounds like a fun children’s show but is anything but. In case you’ve been living on Mars this past year (btw, so jealous. You got a hookup? I’m looking to buy), Roseanne claimed that she was under the influence of Ambien when she tweeted some racist shit that got her fired from her sitcom. As a “medical” “professional”, Doc Oz is uniquely qualified to determine whether or not Roseanne’s Ambien defense holds water. Big surprise here guys, it does not.
I’m willing to bet that’s the same face Norm Macdonald’s publicist made after seeing Norm question the #MeToo movement while defending Louis CK, Roseanne Barr, Chris Hardwick, and realizing they better clear their schedule. Norm gave an interview to The Hollywood Reporter to promote his upcoming Netflix series, Norm Macdonald Has a Show, and he came through with the kind of opinions that got him booted from an appearance on The Tonight Show last night.
When ABC announced they were cancelling the Roseanne revival after Roseanne Barr let loose with some racism on Twitter, it seemed like many from the cast (like Sara Gilbert) were quick to agree that the right decision was made. Not John Goodman though, who when asked about the situation with Roseanne back in May, would only say he didn’t know anything about it and that he doesn’t read anything. It turns out John maybe wasn’t doing much reading or wasn’t too enthusiastic to talk because the show’s cancellation put him in a pretty dark spot.
I hope the irony is not lost on her?
Roseanne Barr gave her first official TV interview, after swearing she didn’t trust TV and would interview herself (which…didn’t exactly go well). Roseanne clearly found a TV personality she trusted, and what do you know, the honor went to Sean Hannity of FOX News. Roseanne appeared on Hannity yesterday to discuss the tweet that cost her a show. Roseanne offered up explanations and apologies for the offensive tweet she made at the expense of Valerie Jarrett two months ago. But lest you think Roseanne has learned her lesson and is walking the road to repentance, she also managed to get in another rude jab at Valerie.
As promised, Roseanne Barr has interviewed herself for her YouTube channel, in an attempt to once again defend herself against the haters who have accused her of tweeting racism at Valerie Jarrett. For anyone wondering if this screen shot was taken out of context, you’re about to see that it’s very much exactly the prime moment of context.
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.
