Read on: TheWrapTheWrap

Roseanne Barr announced Sunday she will be doing her first TV interview since her racially-charged tweets on May 29 that caused the cancellation of her self-titled ABC show.

“To my wonderful fans who I treasure and love-who have carried me these past weeks when I was 2 weak 2 carry myself: I will be doing a TV interview this week,” she tweeted. “I’ll tell u about it tomorrow!”

And in a subsequent tweet, she showed off her new blond ‘do.

The comedian has spoken solely to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach on his podcast about the Ambien-fueled attack on Twitter against Valerie Jarrett, former Obama’s African-American adviser whom she a child of “Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes.” Just hours after the controversy flared up, ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”

On Monday, Barr told Boteach in his podcast that she is considering a return to television and has already received several offers.

“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 and I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we’ll see,” Barr said.
