Roseanne Barr Says She's 'Probably' Going to Move to Israel

Roseanne Barr is making a move.

The 65-year-old actress and comedian, whose sitcom Roseanne was canceled due to her racist tweets, tells Rabbi Shmuley Boteach in a new podcast that she plans to move to Israel once the Roseanne spin-off, The Conners, airs.

“I have an opportunity to go to Israel for a few months and study with my favorite teachers over there, and that’s where I’m going to go and probably move somewhere there and study with my favorite teachers. I have saved a few pennies and I’m so lucky I can go…and study with any rabbi that I can ask to teach me, and it’s my great joy and privilege to be a Jewish woman,” she said.

“I’m not going to curse it or bless it,” she said of The Conners.

“I’m staying neutral. That’s what I do. I’m staying neutral. I’m staying away from it. Not wishing bad on anyone and I don’t wish good for my enemies. I don’t. I can’t. I just stay neutral. That’s what I gotta do. I have some mental health issues of depression and stuff. I got to stay in the middle or I’ll go dark, and I don’t want to go dark again. I’ve done it. After all, I was married to Tom Arnold. Ha ha,” she added.

She also revealed that she “went to Nashville and cut a record.”

“I’m singing and getting better. I’m not great, or even good, but I’m better,” she said.

She also says she’s working on a new sitcom: “I’m very excited. It’s very funny,” she explained.

    Like Israel needs one more racist, hatefilled supremacist bigot. Is she moving into a Palestinians home too?

    Imagine she being able to do that while a child BORN there being thrown out of her own home and motherland for the crime of not being Jewish.

    Staying neutral while MOVING to Israel – how stupid does she think we are? If she were neutral she wouldn’t even be talking about it let alone going.

    GTFO with this. Trash.

    Go on Roseanne, its not like you have anything enlightening to offer nor a good human being anyway. You’d fit right at home with all the other monsters while pretending to be the one wronged. Cant wait for you to start glorifying the fascists and posing with the criminal and illegal settlers. Right where you belong.

    Also Boteach isnt a fraud and not a real Rabbi.
