funkyfest: dbeat: thewomanofkleenex: During the first season…

During the first season or two of Roseanne, Roseanne Barr was treated horribly by the producers, who wanted to get rid of her, even though she was the creative genius behind the show, which was based entirely on characters she had developed. She went with “success is the best revenge,” working extra hard to make sure the show hit the #1 spot, knowing at that point she could seize creative control. She hung out with the crew and supportive castmembers (including John Goodman, who flat refused to do the show without her), and put a list on her door. That list had the name of every single person who worked on the show. When they pissed her off, she’d cross off their name in red. Everyone in red was to be fired the second she was in charge. She took this policy from Machiavelli, and she made good on it. Her first move was to fire everyone who had tried to shut her down. She also promoted a number of women writers and fired a number of men writers for being sexist. So, this shirt is no lie.

The continuation to this story is that those writers got picked up for Home Improvement. Which makes total sense.

Tool Time, indeed.

She got SO much flak for firing all the writers. Firing men! She did an awesome interview on Donahue (shut up) and it was like

“So you fired all your writers.”

“Yep.”

“It can be hard in the creative world, when there is a team, to be able to tell who is doing a good job and who isn’t.”


“Well I happen to be able to tell.”

"The truth is, I can’t be with you like this. I know I said that I could, but I just can’t compromise…"

“The truth is, I can’t be with you like this. I know I said that I could, but I just can’t compromise myself like that. I mean, I’m an emotional person. I feel things, and I need to be able to get upset and talk about how I’m feeling. That’s who I am, and I can’t change it, and I don’t want to. And the thing is, you knew that. You knew it, and you still pursued me. Because you want something with me. You just aren’t strong enough to have it, which in a way makes you a coward. And the saddest part is that one day, you’re gonna wake up and you’re gonna realize what you missed and it’s gonna be too late.”

I believe I mentioned that making connections would be a major activity in 2012. I will be making many of them with my mind. Others will come in various ways, for example through Michelle.
