The New Roseanne

RoseanneLooksGreat

From The National Enquirer  April 28, 2014 by Alan Smith Roseanne’s dramatic weight loss was the talk of an April 8 press event in Pasadena, Calif. She helped promote NBC’s new version of “Last Comic Standing,” which returns May 22 and features her as a judge. Roseanne’s face was chiseled “and even her collarbone was visible beneath the layers of long necklaces as she posed for pictures,” said the source. Jaws dropped as she proudly paraded her trim figure in a flat­tering outfit. “Her heavy days are behind her,” said the source. “And she wants to come down even more.” … [Read more...]

Domestic Goddess Cooking Show 2003 Flashback

Roseanne & Johnny had just hooked up (about 11 years ago) and he found himself in the reality show she was doing at the time, "The Real Roseanne." It was an hilarious premise: a network (ABC) show about Roseanne trying to get a cable cooking show. It was brilliant and ahead of its time (It was Roseanne, after all!). Producers mentioned a theme song for the cooking show & Johnny asked if he could submit one for consideration. Here's "Somethin's Cookin' - he wrote the words and music, played everything in a jazzy, Bluesy organ format, dashed into an LA studio and came out in less than an hour with this demo. Johnny and Roseanne loved the idea of the late, wonderful Phoebe Snow singing it when it got past the demo stage, but that wasn't to be. But, we thought Roseannearchists and Roseanthropologists might enjoy this little 2-minute slice of history. It's kind of a fun blast from the past that never really saw the light of day - but Roseanne liked it and that's all that mattered to Johnny.   … [Read more...]

Interview in Esquire Magazine

Comedy Central Roast Of Roseanne Barr - Show

  Roseanne Barr may be 60, but she's got more energy and ambition than most comics half her age. After a failed—but, she says, serious—bid for president last year, she's back to doing comedy full-time, with a residency at the Tropicana in Las Vegas, and a return to NBC's The Office as talent agent Carla Fern, helping Andy Bernard (Ed Helms) chase his show business dreams. I initially called Barr to talk about The Office, but after a perfunctory discussion (the cast and writers are great! The food on set is amazing!) we moved on to other, more pressing topics. Like mind control and weed. ESQUIRE.COM: How long have you been in Vegas? ROSEANNE BARR: I came out twice. First it was from the middle of January to March 1, and then I came back for all of April. I'll be here until early May. ESQ: Does being in that city mess with your internal chemistry? There are no clocks, it's always daytime. It's like being in Alaska during a month when the sun never sets. RB: I love it. It's one of the reasons why I like coming here. It makes me more productive. Maybe it's because it's not a vacation for me. It's all about work when I'm here. I actually get more conservative when I'm in Vegas. ESQ: So you're not the kind of person who likes to take some peyote and go out in the desert to talk to your spirit animal? RB: I've already talked to my spirit animal. He's got nothing else to tell me. I'm 60, I've done it all. I'm totally over it. ESQ: But you still smoke … [Read more...]

Roseanne to Guest on Portlandia as the “Mayor”

Roseanne Barr may have fallen short in her bid to become the next President of the United States, but on IFC’s sketch series Portlandia, the comedienne will serve as the city’s highest-ranking public official — at least briefly. “The mayor of Portland (Kyle MacLachlan) disappears, and through a temp agency, she fills in as mayor,” teases series co-creator/star Fred Armisen of her two-episode stint, which airs on Jan. 25 and Feb. 1. “She does things in the most efficient way. Because the character didn’t grow up in Portland, she doesn’t have the same understanding of how things go. She’s more like, ‘Look, this is a city, so we have to do those things that cities do.’ We wanted an outsider to come in and say, ‘What is this place?’” Armisen was thrilled by Roseanne’s pit stop in Portlandia. “We were just fans of her show [Roseanne], and having her on was really, really cool,” he says. “It also made us feel more legitimate as a show.” Other famous folks appearing on Portlandia‘s third season, which begins on Friday night.include Patton Oswalt, Juliette Lewis, Rose Byrne, Bill Hader, and George Wendt.
