In a new episode of Straight Shuter’s hilarious podcast, host Rob Shuter tells fans all about the shamed actress’s new collaboration with the left-wing comedian.
According to Shuter, Barr, 65, is putting plans together for her “rehabilitation,” following her scandalous TV firing. She said that after those racist tweets that got her hit show cancelled on ABC, she’s trying to figure out what’s next! While she’s tried to apologize, her words keep getting misconstrued and backfiring. She needs to get her story straight, which is why she’s reached out to her old pal, Rosie O’Donnell, 56.
O’Donnell confirmed to Straight Shuter that the two did get in touch following the Roseanne scandal, though it is unclear what partnership they have in mind.
“Rosie and Roseanne couldn’t be more different when it comes to their political views, but this unlikely friendship really does work and they are true friends,” a source claimed, speaking of their unlikely alliance.
O’Donnell has known what it’s like to be in trouble, to get rejected, to have the press turn on her—and now Barr is certainly in that same place, so she’s helping her through it.
“At the moment Rosie is providing just a shoulder to cry on. She is not the sort of pal to walk away when things get tough,” continued the source.
It’s not yet known what the two comedians will collaborate on, but whatever project they come up with will surely get the crowd roaring with laughter—or controversy!
“At the moment, Rosie O’Donnell is writing a one-woman show for Broadway,” said the insider, adding that she hopes to turn that show into a sort of (Netflix, HBO, Showtime) special, as well as into a comedy album.
As OK! readers know, the Roseanne cast is moving forward with the show’s spinoff, which will center around Barr’s on-screen daughter, Darlene. Various actors agreed to sign back on, but the network is insisting Barr drop out for good.
The only problem is: will Roseanne Barr keep her catty Twitter remarks to herself now that the hit show reboot is back on? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
