Nobody wanted the 'Roseanne' show. I heard from agents that there was no interest in a show about a fat woman and her family.
The end of my addiction to fame happened at the exact moment 'Roseanne' dropped out of the top ten, in the seventh of our nine seasons. It was mysteriously instantaneous!
One of the first things I bought when I made 'Roseanne Show' money was a farm in Iowa.
A lot of people in television who've had successful shows claim the 'Roseanne' show as their starting place, and I'm really proud of that.
I was living in Evanston, Illinois and I was taking theater classes down the street, and our theater school was kind of affiliated with an agency, and so I went on one audition for whatever that movie was, 'My Stepmother is an Alien' or whatever it was, and 'Roseanne' was my second audition.
Roseanne was incredible to work with. She was extremely bright.
I know Chuck Lorre personally, and am familiar with his work going back to 'Roseanne' and 'Cybil.'
