“I can’t know what they think or feel,” she stated. “I don’t know why they did what they did. I’m not like them. I realized that. I can’t believe what they did, with all the pain that I went through to bring the show back. And it didn’t faze them to murder my character, either.”
Barr originated the role of Roseanne Conner in October 1988 on Roseanne. The ABC sitcom ran for nine seasons until 1997 before being revived for a 10th season in 2018. The Conners, meanwhile, is currently in the midst of its fifth season on the network.
Still, Barr contends she isn’t holding grudges against her former onscreen family.
“I forgive everybody,” she said. “I started thinking that God took me out of there to save me. And once I started thinking that way, I was, like, a lot better off.”
