Roseanne Barr is one of Hollywood’s most confidently outspoken and controversial comedians and actresses. Her sitcom “Roseanne” was one of the record-breaking shows on television, but since its reboot was canceled, the actress has been off the screens. She leads a quiet life in Hawaii, but fans expressed concern about the state of her home.
Roseanne Barr is a comedian and actress known for being controversial with her jokes. The actress performed her stand-up on the “Tonight Show starring Jimmy Carson.”
However, what broke her into fame was when she landed her own sitcom, “Roseanne,” in 1988, which ran for nine seasons and won her an Emmy Award.
The actress also had her own HBO show “On Location: The Roseanne Barr Show” in 1987, but the TV network canceled it after a short time. Since then, Barr has never dimmed her outgoing character and controversial jokes, which do not always land the way she intends.
The actress made a racist tweet about Former President Barack Obama’s secretary adviser Valerie Jerrett. After the backlash, Barr’s reason was that she did not know Jarrett was black.
The racist tweet cost Barr her sitcom. In 2019, Barr’s co-star Sara Gilbert confirmed that “Rosanne” was canceled because of the actress’s racist remarks.
However, Barr blamed Gilbert for ruining her life; she said, “She will never get enough until she consumes my liver with a fine Chianti.”
Nonetheless, Gilbert did not entertain Barr’s comments; instead, she responded that she still loved and cared for her co-star and considered her family.
Gilbert also revealed that Barr had told her that the reboot of her sitcom was her ultimate comeback into the acting scene, but she was disappointed at her controversial tweets. Gilbert expressed, “I knew that Roseanne, the person, was unpredictable at times, but she told me this [reboot] was her redemption.”
However, Barr continues to live a quiet life in her home in Hawaii. The 70-year-old is all about body positivity and loves to embrace her physique online.
The actress is confident in herself despite her age. She even posted a picture in a figure-hugging leopard print dress with red roses and paired it with black kitten heels. With her arm on her waist, Barr struck a pose and captioned the photo, “feeling good, looking better.”
Barr has never been one to care about what people say about her. Therefore, it is no surprise that the actress willingly shows off her grey hair.
The actress was a sitcom lead for nine seasons, so she has earned her grey hair. When she was 58 years old and guested on “Live! With Regis and Kelly” and embraced her grey head on daytime television.
Barr was promoting her book in New York and showed up looking stylish. She wore black pants with a cream-white knee-length coat and accessorized with red glasses. She kept her makeup simple but added a pop of red to her lips.
She wore black boots and kept her hair simple. She had it bone straight and showed off her grey roots as she waved at the cameras with a smile.
Despite the grey hair, Barr has been praised for aging gracefully. Fans felt that the actress inspired them to get a work routine that would have them looking as good as her in their early 70s.
A fan applauded the actress for her fighting spirit in overcoming any challenges. Another one praised her for not allowing fame to change her character. People were impressed at how Barr lived life at her tune and standard.
The actress shared a picture of herself sleeping in her bed filled with clothes, boxes, and a laptop. She captioned it “Shop till you drop,” and fan related to the photo by comparing it to how the kind of fatigue that follows after having cooked and cleaned up a kitchen.
While many fans appreciate Barr’s openness and representation of her realistic lifestyle, some thought she could do more cleaning around her house and present herself as someone famous with money.
Criticized for Her Looks & Home
The same photo that showed Barr’s bed covered in clothes and other household items and had people praising her for living her truth sparked outrage in some of her other followers.
People thought Barr needed to invest in better housekeeping services. Others judged the state of her home because they believed that the actress should be able to invest in people to help her clean.
However, someone else disputed that it was not Barr’s housekeeper’s fault and blamed the actress for making the mess and choosing to live in it.
The follower admitted that she was not perfect, was allowed to have bad days, and that it was normal for a home to end up messy, but they argued that Barr was a star and needed to control the chaos.
Another fan said she adored Barr but thought she looked like a “homeless drug addict”. At the same time, others wondered why a rich celebrity would have a home that looked like a regular person’s.
When rapper Kanye West caused an internet frenzy with his comments on slavery and the American government, Roseanne was one of the celebrities to stand up for him despite the backlash he was facing.
The actress reiterated that people were afraid of the truth, but her support and comment angered more fans; in turn, they came for her looks.
