Roseanne Barr said she has “almost accepted one really good offer” to return to television, she told a podcast host.
“Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen and I feel very excited because I’ve already been offered so many things,” the 65-year-old comedian told Rabbi Shmuley Boteach in a podcast appearance posted Sunday.

“I’ve almost accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it,” Barr added.
She was fired and her “Roseanne” show was canceled after tweeting a racist about former Obama aide Valerie Jarret: “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
She apologized for the comment and has since vowed to “make restitution for the pain she caused.”
I’m making restitution for the pain I have caused.

During the interview, the comedian also talked about why she didn’t upset ABC’s plans for the “Roseanne” spinoff called “The Conners” that will air without her this fall on the network.
“I didn’t ask to be paid off,” the actress shared. “I asked for nothing and I just stepped away because that is penance.”
In the first podcast posted June 24, Barr said that she was willing to accept the “consequences” of her actions.
“I said to God, ‘I am willing to accept whatever consequences this brings because I know I’ve done wrong. I’m going to accept what the consequences are,’ and I do, and I have,” the actress explained. “But they don’t ever stop. They don’t accept my apology, or explanation. And I’ve made myself a hate magnet. And as a Jew, it’s just horrible. It’s horrible.”
