In an Interview with Sean Hannity, of Fox News and one of the few people who has backed up Roseanne Barr, she admitted that she began to have issues associated with her dissociative identity disorder when she was promoting the reboot of her show “Roseanne.” “It was scary, Sean. I told ABC that I don’t feel like I’m in a good mentally balanced place. I became Ambien dependant,” Barr told Hannity.
Roseanne went on to say that her Ambien intake became so excessive that she would “wake up to discover eggs cracked on the wall from attempts at making brownies, and Triscuits and cheese, scattered around the kitchen that served as sleep-walking snacks.”
Roseanne’s successful reboot show was canceled by ABC after she posted a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former Obama White House adviser. In the tweet, Roseanne likened Jarrett to an ape. The former comedian-actress has since apologized several times and has even stepped aside for the second reboot by ABC “The Conners,” which would not include her at all, nor would she profit from the show.
During her interview with Hannity, Roseanne took the opportunity to address Jarrett by saying, “I’m so sorry that you thought my tweet was racist because it wasn’t. It was political.”
Many applauded ABC’s decision to cancel the show, saying that they do not stand for those kinds of values and therefore could not be part of someone who would tweet something so racists. Even Sarah Gilbert her co-star “Darlene” on the show agreed with the network’s decision.
It will be interesting to see if the second reboot of the original “Roseanne” sitcom will be a success without its main character. Will the other characters be strong enough to carry the show?
Gossip stories have also commented that Roseanne isn’t at home crying her eyes out either and that she may soon appear back on TV in another show.
