After being fired May 29 from the rebooted ABC sitcom “Roseanne” for posting a racist comment on Twitter, Roseanne Barr says she is receiving offers for other television projects and may accept one of them, The Huffington Post reports.
The actress and comedian is quoted saying in an interview on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast: “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 and I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we’ll see.”
Since Barr’s firing, ABC has announced plans for a spinoff series, “The Conners,” which will not include Barr.
“Barr told Boteach that she had signed away her rights to the show without asking for any compensation,” the story reports.
Barr is quoted saying: “I thought signing off of my own life’s work and asking for nothing in return, I thought that was a penance. Sometimes you ask people what do you think should be done to you knowing what you’ve done wrong and it seems that people always know what should be done to them.
“I just knew that was the right thing and I want to do the right thing because I’ve lived my life, most part of it, to do the right thing for all people, not just Jews.”
