Roseanne Barr, the comedienne whose 'Roseanne' show made a stunning comeback recently, has been labelled 'big' and 'large', by Valerie Jarrett, a Senior Advisor to former president Barack Obama.
The roly-poly funnywoman, 65, whose new version of the show was been aired by ABC until it was dropped yesterday because of an allegedly racist tweet, is such a porker, and that doesn't tell the half of it!
'Roseanne', which was the most popular show on US TV in 1989 and 1990, starred the rotundess, and was a massive hit, winning several awards, but Barr could never escape her shape, which was, essentially, 'round'.
Barr starred as Roseanne Conner, who lived with her husband Dan (John Goodman) and their three children. Storylines usually revolved around the significance of the Conners being a blue-collar working class family in 80s/90s America, and never dwelt on obesity.
ABC reversed its renewal decision and canceled 'Roseanne' after racist remarks made by Barr on Twitter about Jarrett.
The former presidential advisor responded that:
"I know Roseanne Barr is a comedienne, and that she was only joking, and that she didn't really mean to be hurtful, so I forgive the no-longer-funny, big, large bitch, unreservedly."
