I have to say, no matter what Roseanne Barr Arnold Conner Whatever does or says, I will always remember and love her for representing a family on television that was actually similar to my own family growing up. Which is to say on her sitcom “Roseanne,” she wasn’t afraid to have parents fight, or kids act like brats, or families stress over money and jobs.
Plus, she made “She-Devil,” one of the best movies of all time, hands down, I don’t care what you say.
But somewhere’s along the past few years, Roseanne has gotten a little more whacka whacka than before. Whether it’s the Kabbalah thing or the showing up on Larry King Live just saying weird shit, she’s creeping closer and closer to the edge. Recently, everyone was all up in a tizzy over some comments she made about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt on her blog.
Now, quite frankly, I couldn’t care less what Roseanne thinks about Brangelina, and more than that, I think she has the right to say whatever she wants about them. (Somehow, I just don’t think Brad and Angie are sweatin’ it over in their mansion in France.)
But at any rate, the hulabaloo got me curious about this Roseanne blog, so I headed over there to check it out.
Oh my Gawd. Here’s just a sampling of some of the headlines:
Bit my cuticle, its infected Fat old crackpot granny Toby Keith Tonight is turkey taco night I think israel is going to attack iran Proud of students in iowa who took my advice
And the truly bizarre post titled “Atlantis is a planet” in which Ms. Roseanne contends that we are made out of diamonds that come from the underwater planet of Atlantis.
The blog is a strange yet delightful mix of Roseanne updating us on the minutiae of her life (and I do mean minutiae) and sharing her far left political and philosophical views with us (love it!). It’s compelling reading, and I swear, once you get started browsing, you won’t be able to stop.
So let Roseanne say what she wishes regarding Brad, Angie, and any other celebrity. As long as she keeps blogging, the more whacka whacka the better. I say, go Roseanne, go! – Jennifer Mathieu
