For the first time in a while, Roseanne Barr has found herself on the tip of every smart so-and-so's tongue. She's blunt, surprisingly wise, hysterical and she's showing up in more and more places.
It was her essay in New York Magazine that seemed to put her back on the map. A chronicle of struggle, success, insanity and feminism, it re-focused eyes back on a talented woman with wise cracking mouth and a complete intolerance for subordination.
Now it seems she can do no wrong. Barr's new series, 'Roseanne's Nuts,' which debuted on 'Lifetime' last week, is raking in ratings and praise. The setting is different than we're used to, the Hawaii-based show has Barr managing 40 acres of macadamia nuts and a livestock farm, but her delightfully acrid personality remains.
Last night she appeared on 'Chelsea Lately' to talk about her new book, 'Roseannarchy'--and smoking weed, promoting vodka and being downright nuts.
