For nine years, millions of people tuned in to watch the hit ABC star,¬†Roseanne. The show starred comedian Roseanne Barr as Roseanne Conner and John Goodman as her husband, Dan. Michael Fishman, Sara Gilbert, and Lecy Goranson played Roseanne and Dan’s kids — D.J., Darlene, and Becky, respectively. Near the end of the series, Roseanne unexpectedly became pregnant and gave birth to Jerry, played by twins Cole and Morgan Roberts.

From the outset, Roseanne was a hit, with fans loving the funny but realistic life of a middle-class American family. The show originally aired from 1988 through 1997 but was revived in 2018 for a tenth season. Almost immediately after the season ten premiere, the show was renewed for an eleventh season.

To the disappointment of many, the eleventh season was canceled just two months after it was announced. The cancelation came after Barr sent out a very offensive tweet, referring to Valerie Jarrett — a former adviser to President Barack Obama — as someone who looked like “the muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”

Two years after¬†Roseanne’s cancellation, ABC premiered the spinoff show The Conners, which saw the original cast return — well, the original cast, excluding Roseanne Barr. And it appears that Ms. Barr is still bitter about Disney and ABC wanting nothing to do with her after her racial tirade.

In a recent interview with¬†Newsweek, Ms. Barr discussed her relationship with the Mouse House, and it is… not good. In fact, Barr said that she is preparing to file a lawsuit against the company.

Not only that, Barr said she is also writing a book that is “going to tell all of their secrets.”

“Once I sue ABC and own it, then every show I put on will be about a fat bitch from the Midwest,” she said.

“I’m writing a book about the show and I’m going to tell all of their secrets,” she said of her former coworkers. “I’m telling every dirty, f—ing thing I know about every one of them. It’s going to be great, because I kept those secrets all those years in the interest of the show.”

“I was an idiot who cared about people and I went out of the way to help them,” she said, adding that she bowed out of¬†Roseanne¬†to make it possible for ABC to create¬†The Conners, and she allowed that to preserve the jobs of those who depended on the show.”

Barr further said that she was planning to, “f— those people over the way they f—ed me over.”

This is not the first time that Barr has made headlines for saying some absolutely outlandish things, like claiming that no one died in the Holocaust. She then doubled down on that thought, saying that 6 million Jewish people should be killed ‚Äú‚Äôcause they cause all the problems in the world.‚ÄĚ
