Update: Tim Allen Commits to Seven Episodes With Roseanne: “She’s Cutting Edge”
Roseanne Barr is back and bigger than ever, and she hasn’t forgotten those who stood by her along the way. While the entire cast and crew of “The Conners” may never work again, her good friend Tim Allen, who used to shoot his show “Home Improvement” on the same Des Moines soundstage as “Roseanne,” has agreed to do seven episodes of her new show, “Raising the Barr.”
“I’m thrilled to be part of her comeback,” said Allen, “she’s got a lot of power in Hollywood right now and I’m just fortunate to be on her good side.”
It’s a well-known fact that whoever is currently at the top of the news cycle in Hollywood holds most of the cards for at least a few weeks. That short time span for someone as influential as Roseanne Barr can make or break a person’s career.
“I begged her to give me a chance,” said Lacy Goransen, “she just kept saying ‘f*ck off, Becky.’ It was so unfair.”
The family of the kid who played Mark in the original series said it was very disrespectful to have Roseanne die of an opioid overdose, since that’s how he went.
It’s like they stole our story,” they said. They’re suing the network for $500 million and a formal apology.
The new show will start filming sometime this fall. God Bless America.
