Roseanne Barr Says Former TV Daughter Sara Gilbert 'Destroyed the Show and My Life'
The "Roseanne" star blames the actress for ending the show.
Roseanne Barr has declared war on former castmate Sara Gilbert.
The comic bashed her former onscreen daughter, clamming Gilbert is the one to blame for her being fired from the “Roseanne” reboot.
The show was canceled after Barr wrote tweets about former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, which were swiftly criticized as racist. Barr denied the messages were intended as racist, but the president of ABC called Barr's comments "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values."
At the time, Gilbert tweeted that Roseanne’s remarks about Jarrett were “abhorrent,” adding, “I am disappointed in her actions to say the least.”
In an interview publising Thursday, Barr told The Washington Post: "[Sara] destroyed the show and my life with that tweet."
"She will never get enough until she consumes my liver with a fine Chianti,” she added, a reference to the “Silence of the Lambs” character Hannibal Lecter.
Gilbert responded, telling the paper, “She will always be family, and I will always love Roseanne."
Meanwhile, Barr made a surprise guest appearance at The Laugh Factory with comedian Andrew “Dice” Clay over the weekend, and she railed on her former network.
“When you get fired, you get real suicidal, but I’d never kill myself because that would make too many f****** people happy," Barr quipped. "I’m not about to make people happy."
"Dear ABC, when you asked me back to once again bail out your shit, f******, low-rated network, I did so with the same vigor I’ve always rocked, and I delivered you the highest ratings you've had in ten f****** years," she added.
After the gig, Clay posted images and video to Instagram of his set with Barr.
