Pop culture junkie. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever".

Goodman continued, saying he believes Barr is not really a racist, and that her firing resulted in him getting "very depressed" for about a month.

ABC made the decision to fire Roseanne from the show after she tweeted remarks about President Obama's former advisor Valerie Jarrett that compared her to a baby between the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes. Speculation is that her character will be killed off, and although Goodman said the status of her character is "unknown" at this time, he did further the speculation by adding that he guesses Dan will be "mopey and sad because his wife's dead". ABC, which had renewed the "Roseanne" revival for a second season, denounced the comments and canceled the sitcom. The three young actors will all appear on the upcoming spinoff as series regulars.

John Goodman, who played Roseanne's husband Dan in the series, was talking with the Sunday Times when he spilled the beans: Roseanne Conner will be dead. They even predict the show will be a failure without Roseanne at the helm.

The Conners stars John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman, Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara, and Jayden Rey.

It should be noted that it was Roseanne who allowed the spin-off to continue.

No, Congress has jurisdiction over trade and has to ratify any new trade agreement inked by the administration. In Mexico, the benefits seem limited, despite an increase in jobs outsourced from the United States.

In an interview with the Sunday Times of London, Goodman said he wasn't sure how the new series, titled The Conners, will be structured.

She has repeatedly apologized for any offence that the tweet caused as well as to the cast and crew of Roseanne, but refuses to accept that it was racist.

Goodman said he did message Barr during that time, saying: 'She had to sign a paper saying that she relinquished all her rights to the show so that we could go on'.

She gave up all rights to the series allowing The Conners to move forward and save the jobs of those whom she worked with for years.

Less than a day after a John Goodman spoke out about the cancellation of "Roseanne", defending the comedian and namesake of the show, Roseanne Barr thanked him on Twitter.
