Roseanne Barr not doing TV interview after all
After announcing she was planning to do her first TV interview after her racist Twitter rant, Roseanne Barr now says she has thought better of it.
Barr tweeted Sunday she was planning a sit-down more than a month after she was fired from the ABC reboot of her popular “Roseanne” series following her controversial attack on ex-Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.
“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 wrote. “I’ll tell u about it tomorrow!”
But on Monday the actress tweeted, “After a lot of thought, I decided that I won’t be doing any TV interviews, too stressful & untrustworthy 4 me & my fans.”
“I’m going to film it myself & post it on my youtube channel in the next week-the entire explanation of what happened & why!” Barr tweeted. “I love you all-sign up & get ready.”
Barr’s YouTube channel features personal videos, clips of her performing and episodes of her Web series “She’s So High.”
So far she has only talked to her friend Rabbi Shmuley Boteach on his podcast after her firing and the cancellation of her hit ABC series.
In May she tearfully told him, “I lost everything, and I regretted it before I lost everything,” and she followed that up with a conversation with Boteach in which she said she’s been fielding “many” TV offers. ABC has announced it will revive her show as “The Conners” without Barr being involved.
