Roseanne ventures into reality

July 16, 2003 at 12:53 PM   |   Comments

HOLLYWOOD, July 16 (UPI) -- Roseanne Barr is back, and the former sitcom star, known for firing writers and tormenting executives promises to be good.

She's also the first to admit that being good isn't easy, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

"I'm heavily medicated right now," the newly mellow star told members of the Television Critics Association.

Barr is the latest celebrity to become the subject of a reality show, joining the ranks of notables like Ozzy Osbourne and Anna Nicole Smith.

"The Real Roseanne Show" will air Wednesdays at 9 on ABC, starting Aug. 6. For the past six months, Barr has been trailed by documentary filmmaker R.J. Cutler, best known for the Academy Award-nominated "The War Room," a warts-and-all depiction of the 1992 Clinton presidential campaign.

On "The Real Roseanne Show," Cutler chronicles Barr's efforts to get back into TV with a cooking program described as "a white-trash Martha Stewart" show.
