Roseanne Barr is one of Hollywood’s most confidently outspoken and controversial comedians and actresses

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.

One Twitter user called Barr “ugly and fat” and said she hoped she knew the truth about that, as a response to what the actress said concerning West’s comments. Another angry user referred to her as “ignorant and trashy.”

One other user called out Barr for being ignorant of America’s inequality and the realities that stem from it. They painted the actress as someone who deliberately hurt people’s feelings and used her controversial outbursts as a cry for attention.

Barr might receive many negative comments about her body on social media. Still, the actress has been working hard to transform her body with a healthy diet and rigorous workout routine.

Living a Simple Life
When Barr was at the peak of her fame following the success of her sitcom, she was at her heaviest and reportedly weighed around 350 pounds.

The actress wanted to turn a new leaf and focused on getting her body in shape. Barr underwent gastric bypass surgery, which helped her lose 80 pounds.

Barr had already gone through other weight loss surgeries before the gastric bypass; however, she still needed to maintain a strict diet.

After losing 80 pounds, Barr was proud, but she was left with a lot of loose skin, so she went in for a tummy tuck. When she posted her new body, she did not shy away from telling fans that she had removed most of her digestive system to look slimmer.

Next, the actress had a breast reduction surgery and even confessed that she would like to get more procedures done; however, that did not mean she was scared to age; in fact, she knew going under the knife would be risky the older she got.

Around 2006, the actress gained more weight but was not bothered by it; she still felt great in her body. However, she lost most of it by 2014.

Barr credited her weight loss to exercising and eating healthy, but she said she could maintain her desired weight because of the changes she implemented.

Barr incorporated a more plant-based diet, especially after moving to her Macadamia nut farm in Hawaii. To top it off, the actress revealed that she was a farmer and found the experience enjoyable.

The comedian purchased her Hawaiian home in 2007 for $1,78 million. The house is 2,212 square feet and sits on 46 acres of land.

Barr has been living her low-key life with her long-time partner Johnny Argen. Their home has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms with 360 views of the greenery surrounding their property.

As Barr enjoys the older stages of her life, she also loves bringing her granddaughters to her farm. The actress shared a picture of her and her grandchildren strolling through a large grass field.

Fans commented on how cute the girls were but pointed out that her granddaughters probably only saw her as their grandmother when many fans know her as an iconic comedian. Others simplify related to the unique feeling of being a grandmother.

Barr also opened up about her role as a grandparent. She said her grandkids had been the most significant change in her life. What she loves the most about having grandchildren is being the stern parent who tells her children to be good parents to her grandkids.

The comedian is also well aware of the negativity surrounding her on social media. Still, Barr expressed that she was tired of defending herself from people that misunderstood her character. Her focus is now not to detach and lead a peaceful, happy life. “I want to stay in a joyous, positive, happy place that I’ve worked my way to again in my life,” she said.

The work that Barr has put out as an actress and comedian has earned her a fortune. The actress reportedly has an estimated net worth of $80 million.

Her success came from her sitcom “Roseanne,” which ended in 1997. However, the last season reportedly made a whopping $21 million.

Barr acted alongside Gilbert, John Goodman, and Laurie Metcalf, and their performance made the sitcom one of the most watched sitcoms, with ratings getting higher by the season.

Even though fans were excited to have Barr back on their screens for the 10th season of “Roseanne,” the nine seasons still held much value to many fans.

However, Barr still appeared in many other productions after the show ended. She was in the show “The Nanny My Name is Earl” and was a guest star on the famous comedy series “The Office.”

The actress was a regular on the show “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Barr also appeared in the 2015 show “Cristela.” She was also in the Superbowl commercial for Snickers.

But since Barr’s show was canceled soon after its reboot, she has not starred in any films. Instead, the actress ventured into Youtube. She now documents her life with her partner, five children, and grandchildren on her channel and occasionally interviews other social lights.

Barr is loved for being outspoken, and even though some of her jokes have been hurtful and forced her to introspect on her delivery, her work as a comedian has left a footprint in the industry, and her show “Roseanne” still has a deep cult following.
