I've Been Offered So Many Things

Roseanne Barr says she's already had "so many" offers after being sacked from her ABC sitcom at the end of May, and has admitted she nearly accepted another TV role.

Roseanne Barr is trying to make amends for her wrongdoing after she compared a former political aide under the Obama administration of being the offspring of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet Of The Apes.

ABC ordered 10 episodes of the spinoff after Barr relinquished any creative or financial participation in it, which the network had said was a condition of such a series.

But Barr isn't sweating it anymore.

'Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen and I feel very excited because I've already been offered so many things, ' the 65-year-old comedian said in the interview released Sunday. According to Barr, she has already received a number of offers to return to television, and she is strongly considering taking them. During her chat with Rabbi Shmuley, Roseanne added that some of the best times of her life were during the airing of The Roseanne Show back in 1998 and 2000.

You haven't seen the last of Roseanne Barr yet, TV fans.

In the interview, in which Barr primarily talked about her Jewish faith, the comedian also shared that she signed away her rights to the show without asking for payment as an act of "penance".

In an EW interview, Maher explains that Barr's mental issues will prevent Hollywood executives from taking a risk on her. But all that showing of contrition might pay off for her in the long run because she claims to be fielding a ton of offers for the next big thing.

'After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before, ' the network said in its announcement, referring to the fictional IL town where the family lives. "I am sorry for making a thoughtless jokes that does not reflect my values".

The Roseanne revival premiere was watched by over 27 million viewers and was acclaimed by critics.
