I figured it had to either be stupidity, drugs, alcohol, arrogance or a combination of any of the above that fueled Roseanne’s completely idiotic, racist, stupid tweet. We’ll get to the cause in a moment.
“But Hot Mess, what is this tweet you speak of?”
For any of you who haven’t heard of what Roseanne said or despises Twitter (trust me, it took a long-ass time for me to figure it out and I’m still learning), here is the “eloquent” tweet she sent out 2 nights ago:
VJ she is referring to is Valerie Jarrett. Ms. Jarrett served as a senior advisor to President Barack Obama. Now, I don’t know what beef Roseanne had with Ms. Jarrett, but this was flat-out wrong. In what reality was this a good game plan?
And here’s the thing, I was flippin’ loving the new Roseanne! I loved it when it was on 20 years ago and I was falling back in love with it now. The surreal thing is both my sons loved the new one too. We would sit down every Wednesday night and watch together. If someone told little Hot Mess that in 20 years I’d be watching a new Roseanne, but with sons, I would have replied,
“You’re crazy! Everyone knows I’m going to have daughters. I don’t know the first thing about boys.”
What About the Cast and Crew?
I want to know if all the cast and crew are out of jobs, thanks to her idiocy. Was there an idiot clause? Should she do or say anything that gets the show shut down, they have severance or something? It seemed like a few of the cast members had gone on to live non-Hollywood lives after the first Roseanne. Did they quit that life for the Roseanne Reboot, that has been booted?
And then it came out today that she sent her tweet while under the influence of a sleep-aid, Ambien. Some reported she was high on Ambien. Was she high or taking the recommended dosage? Those are 2 different things. Regardless, Ambien doesn’t allow you to have all your wits about you but it also doesn’t change your view points on things. I know, I took it for a while.
I took Ambien for about a year because I was having trouble staying asleep. From my vantage point, I had approximately 15 minutes to get in bed and do nothing or I may attempt to bike to work with the neighbor kid’s tricycle. Eventually, I knew it was time to stop taking it when my husband said, and I quote, “that was the best sex we’d ever had,” one night after I had taken my dose. I don’t remember even having sex.
So what do you guys think? Do you think she’s trying to pass blame? Are you frustrated like I am?
