Roseanne Barr not doing TV interview after all

10 July 2018

After comparing Valerie Jarrett to an "ape" in May, Roseanne Barr now says she shouldn't have made her argument with the former Barack Obama adviser so personal. She'll post the results on her YouTube channel, which now has more than 16,000 subscribers in spite of its lack of fresh content. She has not posted a video to the site in seven months.

"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", she tweeted. "I'll tell u about it tomorrow!" she tweeted Sunday.

The announcement for the new show stressed that Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series.

The news came as she thanked fans for their support following the controversy that has surrounded her since a racist tweet led to her firing and the cancellation of ABC's "Roseanne" reboot in May.

Roseanne Barr is ready to talk.

The comedian announced the news to her fans on Twitter.

Barr apologized for her actions on a previous episode of the Rabbi Shmuley Podcast, saying, "Of course I'm not a racist". I should have known better. "I ask for forgiveness because I do love all people, I really do".

It is unclear how Barr's character will be written out of the show but the network said it will be "a sudden turn of events". "I've nearly accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it".

The comedienne added that she wasn't paid off for spinoff 'The Conners'. "The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago".
