Roseanne Reveals How Being a Grandmother Has Changed Her
The hit comedy “Roseanne” is returning to ABC after 21 years, and “Extra's” Renee Bargh sat down with the cast to talk about the reboot.
Roseanne Barr, who won an Emmy for her portrayal of Roseanne Conner in 1993, told Renee that having grandchildren has been the biggest change since the show went off the air that year. “I have six grandkids. That's what changed the most in my life. You've got to be pushier to your kids and make sure they do right by their kids, so it kind of gives you an excuse to be a big b**ch that you've always wanted to be.”
John Goodman, whose character Dan Conner literally returns from the dead, told Renee, “I'm a hell of a lot older! I'm rotting inside!”
What was it like for Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf, who is back as Roseanne's sister Jackie? “Once we got over the shock of walking onto the set and seeing each other, being together after all that time, we sat down and did the table read and that's when things clicked and it just felt like home.”
