    And she still can’t accept responsibility for her show getting canceled; once again she claims it was because of her politics — which were well known when the reboot was greenlit.

    I thought, is she supposed to be that old neighbour? But Dan and Darlene didn't seem to recognize her. When they've revived various other minor characters from the original show, I'm surprised they cast her as someone new.

    Not promoting an argument, but she was wanted by everyone she worked with to stop the tweeting, CEO of Disney(owns ABC) warned her weeks before the firing about the tweeting and she kept tweeting things that weren’t political but were very troubling and believe me I’m far from PC. She brought it on herself

    The people whose financing and reputations were connected with the show felt differently and didn't want to be associated with Barr's public racist statements.

    I think the reason they cast her as someone new is that her previous character only really had much interaction with Roseanne, so it was easier to just give her a new character.

    Plus Kathy and her husband had moved away from Lanford so there's little reason for her character to be back in town.

    The show is better without her, IMHO.
