Roseanne Barr breaks down during interview
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach says it’s time for Roseanne Barr to make restitution for racially charged tweet that resulted in the cancellation of her ABC show.
“Roseanne” could be gone for good, but the sitcom’s eponymous star, Roseanne Barr, says they receive many of the vacancies, because ABC let her go on May 29.
“In every bad thing is a good thing to happen and I feel very excited, because I’ve already offered so many things and I have almost already accepted a really good offer to go back on TV and I would do it,” the comedian said during a new interview with Rabbi Schmuley Boteach. “But we’ll see.”

Barr also revealed during the chat, the second with the Rabbi in the past few weeks, that they do not ask for money when signing away the rights to her show — which ABC to proceed with a spin-off series that in one way or another fails her character.

“I thought that the signature of my own life, the work and asks nothing in return, which I thought was fine,” she explained in a discussion of her Jewish faith. “Sometimes people ask what do you think needs to be done to you to know what you’ve done wrong, and it seems that people always know what needs to be done to them. I just knew that was the right thing and I want to do good, for I have lived my life, the biggest part of it, to do the right thing for all people, not just Jews.”
During her first conversation with Boteach, which was released on June 24, Barr broke done in tears, while once again apologizing for her racist tweet directed to Valerie Jarrett, an aide during the Obama White House.

“It’s really hard to say this, but I didn’t want to say what they think I meant. I don’t want him to walk away and blather on with excuses, but I apologize to anyone who thought or felt offended, and thought that I meant something that I in fact do not mean. It was my own ignorance, and there is no excuse for ignorance,” she said. “I definitely have the feeling of regret… I am a lot of things, I am a loud mouth and all that stuff, but I’m not stupid, for God’s sake. I would never have wanted it called a black person…a monkey.”
