Roseanne Barr Responds to Rumors She Had a Heart Attack

Roseanne Barr is responding to rumors that she’s in ill health.

The rumors started when someone called into Sputnik News radio host Lee Stranahan‘s radio show and said that the 66-year-old actress had a heart attack.

Roseanne took to Twitter to confirm that she is doing okay and it was just a prank.

“I’m fine,” she tweeted, along with a photo of herself. “I was the victim of a prank. I’ve had no medical issues. I’m spending time at home with my family and relaxing.”

Roseanne has been keeping things relatively low profile amid her firing from Roseanne.

Roseanne Barr Reacts to 'The Conners' Spinoff Killing Her Off

Roseanne Barr is reacting to the death of her character revealed during The Conners premiere on Tuesday night (October 16).

After it was revealed during the show that matriarch Roseanne had died of an opioid overdose, the 65-year-old disgraced actress took to Twitter to acknowledge her character’s death.

“I AIN’T DEAD, BITCHES!!!!” Roseanne tweeted during the show.

Back in September, Roseanne said that the show would be killing her off, but ABC never commented on the show.

“It wasn’t enough to do what they did to me,” Roseanne said at the time. “They had to so cruelly insult the people who loved that family and that show.”

Roseanne was fired from her show’s reboot back in May after she made a racist comment about President Obama‘s former adviser Valerie Jarrett.

New episodes of The Conners air on Tuesday nights on ABC at 8pm ET.

Roseanne Killed Off on 'The Conners' Premiere - Here's How

The premiere episode of The Conners aired on Tuesday night (October 16) and Roseanne Barr‘s character’s death was revealed.

The episode began three weeks after Roseanne’s death. While the Conner family thought she died from a heart attack, the coroner’s office reveals she died from an opioid overdose.

During the season finale of Roseanne that aired in May, it seemed that Roseanne’s addiction to painkillers because of a knee injury had been resolved. That changed after real-life Roseanne made a racist tweet that led to her being fired.

Roseanne previously revealed that she was going to be killed off via a drug overdose and she felt the move was “cruel.”

“It wasn’t enough to do what they did to me,” she said in an interview last month. “They had to so cruelly insult the people who loved that family and that show.”

Roseanne Barr Reveals How 'The Conners' Will Kill Off Her Character

Roseanne Barr reveals how her character Roseanne’s absence will be addressed on the upcoming ABC spinoff, The Conners.

If you don’t know, Roseanne was fired from her own reboot after sending out a racist tweet months ago.

Roseanne made an appearance on Brandon Straka‘s YouTube show “Walk Away,” and she revealed (SPOILERS AHEAD) that her character will be killed off.

“Oh ya, they killed her. They have her die of an opioid overdose,” she said on the program.

“There’s nothing I can do about it,” Roseanne added of the writers’ decision. “It’s done. It’s over.”

The Conners will premiere on Tuesday (October 16) at 8/7c on ABC.
