Roseanne Barr accuses TV daughter of betrayal before show cancellation.

Roseanne Barr Accuses Former TV Daughter Sara Gilbert of Betrayal

Former star of the ABC sitcom “Roseanne,” Roseanne Barr, accused her former TV daughter, actress Sara Gilbert, of stabbing her in the back during an interview with Megyn Kelly. Barr did not hold back when asked about how she was canceled by Hollywood in 2018 over critical tweets she posted about the Obama administration. One tweet about Valerie Jarrett drew accusations of racism that Barr denied were racist. While she apologized, the 2018 revival of “Roseanne” was quickly canceled. The show was replaced by the spinoff series “The Connors” the next season.

Gilbert Betrayed Barr

Barr told Kelly that Gilbert, who played her daughter Darlene on “Roseanne” from 1988 to 1997, betrayed her and even joined a campaign online to cancel her. Gilbert was a producer on the reboot and Barr said the actress and talk show host had begged her to return for the reboot. Barr said Gilbert had assured her she would be there for her no matter what if she came back and that she also acknowledged beforehand that she had been struggling with mental health issues. But when Barr was attacked for her tweets, Gilbert joined in and condemned her.

ABC Tried to Send a Message

Barr said she felt ABC was trying to send her a message when “The Connors” returned to the network but with her character having been killed off. “They just tried to kill me, and I felt like they killed my character and my character,” Barr said of the people at the network. She concluded, ”I thought they were sending a message over the airwaves because they knew I had mental health issues. I thought they wanted me to kill myself, and all my friends did too. They said they’re trying to push you to suicide.”

Was it Right to Cancel the “Roseanne” Reboot?

Gilbert posted about the controversy on Twitter. “It was her tweet that canceled the show,” Barr said. Barr said that in addition to Gilbert’s joining the mob, she also spoke negatively about her on her CBS show “The Talk.”
