Roseanne Barr: I’m moving to Israel when ‘The Conners’ premieres

Roseanne Barr has gotten herself in hot water with her comments in the past, but that doesn’t seem to be stopping her.

Barr was a guest on the “Rabbi Shmuley Boteach Podcast” recently, where she was asked about ABC’s upcoming Roseanne-less reboot of sorts of her sitcom, The Conners. Here’s what she had to say:

“I’m not going to curse it or bless it. 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 have some mental health issues of depression and stuff. I got to stay in the middle or I’ll go dark, and I don’t want to go dark again. I’ve done it. After all, I was married to Tom Arnold.”

Barr went on to reveal that she probably won’t even be in the country when the show premieres, noting she’s considering moving to Israel:

“I have an opportunity to go to Israel for a few months and study with my favorite teachers over there, and that’s where I’m going to go and probably move somewhere there and study with my favorite teachers. I have saved a few pennies and I’m so lucky I can go.”

The Conners premieres Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
