Roseanne Barr Says She Has 'So Many' Offers to Return to TV

Just months after her racially insensitive tweet got her popular ABC revival series kicked off the air, Roseanne Barr claims that she may be making a return to the small screen sometime soon, as she has several offers on the table.

A spinoff of Roseanne was announced on June 21, with the entire cast but Barr set to return.

But Barr isn't sweating it anymore.

"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", Barr said.

Barr also told ABC News that while she had apologized to Jarrett publicly, she had not reached out to her personally since the incident because she did not have "the right words". During her chat with Rabbi Shmuley, Roseanne added that some of the best times of her life were during the airing of The Roseanne Show back in 1998 and 2000.

"I didn't ask to be paid off, I asked for nothing, and I just stepped away...because that is penance". Her return to television may also be somewhat complicated by the many conspiracy theories Barr has advocated for over the years on her Twitter feed, specifically "birtherism", the repeatedly disproven belief that Barack Obama is not a United States citizen. It was a widely watched series, but Roseanne's frequently controversial tweeting led producers and executives to consider axing her show.

Barr said she hasn't, but she's "praying for the right words".

Her first mea culpa came in an interview with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach last week in which she wept and said, "I'm not a racist. But we'll see", she said.

The Conners will feature 10 episodes and will find the family "forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before" after "a sudden turn of events".

'It's really hard to say this, but I didn't mean what they think I meant.

The Roseanne reboot premiered to record ratings for the network in March when it brought in over 27.2 million telecast viewers according to Forbes.
