[Warning: If you can’t tell by the headline above, spoilers follow.]

ABC’s “Roseanne” spinoff “The Conners” kicked off its season premiere with confirmation that the character once played by Roseanne Barr had been killed off the series after suffering an opioid overdose from pills she was taking to treat a knee injury. Barr took to her Twitter page for an instant reaction to her character’s fate following the conclusion of the episode, defiantly tweeting, “I Ain’T Dead, Bitches!!!!” The actress then published a longer, more official statement along with her rabbi, Shmuley Boteach.

“While we wish the very best for the cast and production crew of ‘The Conners,’ all of whom are deeply dedicated to their craft and were Roseanne’s cherished colleagues, we regret that ABC chose to cancel Roseanne by killing off the Roseanne Conner character,” Barr and Boteach wrote. “That it was done through an opioid overdose lent an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show.

Fran Drescher Wants Cardi B to Star in the Nanny Reboot, and I Dare You to Name a Better Duo
Fran Drescher wants to party with Cardi. The actress recently talked about a possible revival of The Nanny and mentioned that if the '90s sitcom were to be rebooted, she'd want Cardi B to star. "Wouldn't she be great as my daughter?" she said in an interview with People. Maybe I'm wrong, but Drescher might be onto something here.

The inspiration behind her genius idea came from one of Cardi B's more recent Instagram posts. Last month during Milan Fashion Week, the rapper stepped out wearing leopard print from head to toe and shouted Fran out in her photo's caption. When asked about Cardi's homage, Drescher told People she was "so flattered."

"I just thought she paid homage to me wearing animal print and said 'Fran Drescher,'" she said. "And then I got my juices flowing and thought, 'Wait a minute, she's from New York, we both have funny voices,

Holy Sh*t! Did You Catch This Vietnamese Woman Wearing Jack's Necklace on This Is Us?

Holy Sh*t! Did You Catch This Vietnamese Woman Wearing Jack's Necklace on This Is Us?
Warning: spoilers for the This Is Us episode "Vietnam" ahead.

Man, those This Is Us writers are geniuses, and the latest episode can absolutely attest to that. Episode four, "Vietnam," tells the story of Jack Pearson's past - from the birth of his younger brother Nicky, all the way through his life-changing time in Vietnam - but the subtle hints throughout the episode that connect so strongly to his future are why we can't get enough of this show. Since the series premiered more than two years ago, Jack's past remained a mystery, his relationship with his brother was rarely explored, and the most we knew about his beloved necklace was that he gave it to Kevin after the boy was injured during his high school football game.

During this week's episode, we see Jack's necklace for the first time on a mystery woman at his camp in Vietnam.
