SALT LAKE CITY — Roseanne Barr just blamed someone new for the cancellation of the “Roseanne” reboot.
Barr said in a new interview with The Washington Post that her co-star Sara Gilbert’s reaction to Barr’s infamous tweet “destroyed” the show and her life.
- “She destroyed the show and my life with that tweet,” Barr said. “She will never get enough until she consumes my liver with a fine Chianti.” (Chianti is a pricey form of wine).
Barr’s controversial tweet from last year compared Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to former President Barack Obama, to a character from “Planet of the Apes.”
Gilbert told The Washington Post that “while I’m extremely disappointed and heartbroken over the dissolution of the original show, she will always be family, and I will always love Roseanne.”4 comments on this story
- “I knew that Roseanne, the person, was unpredictable at times, but she told me this was her redemption,” Gilbert said. “I chose to believe her.”
