John Goodman Hints at Fate of Roseanne Barr's Character on 'The Conners'
"You know, there's always a silver lining in every cloud, and the tough part is to find it," Barr told ET, maintaining her neutral and guardedly professional position on the series.
During her podcast conversation with Rabbi Shmuley, Barr shared similar sentiments about remaining emotionally and mentally uninvolved from The Conners.
"I’m not going to curse it or bless it,” Barr said. "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 love him," Barr said, getting choked up. "So sweet of him to do that, so nice, cause he does know me."
Late last month, Goodman sat down for an interview with The Sunday Times where he admitted that he was "brokenhearted" by the cancellation of the Roseanne revival. He defended his co-star, saying, "I know, for a fact that she’s not a racist."

"I was so happy, it was so sweet," Barr said, admitting that she "cried" when she'd first read his compassionate remarks.
Goodman was also the first person involved in the show to spark rumors that Barr's character was going to be killed off. During his interview with The Sunday Times, the actor was asked about his onscreen wife's fate and Goodman said, "It’s an unknown."
"I guess he’ll be mopey and sad because, his wife’s dead," he added, without elaborating.
