Roseanne is still is as funny as ever. She is currently living in California with her 8 year old son, Buck.


Quotes By Roseanne

"TV family sitcoms have always been about fathers who know best and mothers who are so enchanted with everything they do. I wanted to be the first mom to be a mom on TV. I wanted to sent out a message about how us women really feel."

"Everything that's written about me has such a negative taint. It just has a life of its own, like an avalanche, and I don't think there's anything I can do to stop it."

"Women complain about premenstrual syndrome, but I think of it as the only time of the month that I can be myself."
