'Roseanne' Star Roseanne Barr Once Accused Her Parents of Incest, Then Regretted It

Roseanne, which returned to ABC after more than two decades off the air, presents a TV family that's dysfunctional but also happy and loving. It's apparently a stark departure from star Roseanne Barr's actual family life. The Emmy-winning actress once accused her parents of incest, and while she later expressed regret over those claims, she didn't exactly take them back. A post shared by Roseanne Barr (@officialroseannebarr) on Dec 16, 2017 at 12:22pm Pst In 1991, near the height of her sitcom's popularity, Roseanne opened up about her upbringing in an interview with People. "Keeping the secret of incest has taken all my energy and courage for 38 years," she said. As she explained, her long-repressed memories came flooding back two years prior when then-husband Tom Arnold called her from rehab and told her he was molested as a child. "Immediately after hanging up, I began to shake and sweat," she said.

Daytime Emmys 2018: Will ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ extend its record with an 11th victory for Best Talk Show?

Daytime Emmys 2018: Will ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ extend its record with an 11th victory for Best Talk Show?
When the 2018 Daytime Emmy nominations were announced on March 21 “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” was the top talk show with 11 bids. That may turn out to be a lucky number for the syndicated series as it’s looking for its 11th overall victory for Best Talk Show. That would extend the record it set last year when it won for the 10th time, surpassing the nine victories that “The Oprah Winfrey Show” racked up between 1987 and 1997 before Winfrey stopped submitting her series for consideration. But while “Ellen” has been a dominant force in daytime TV over the last 15 years, we’ve seen that it’s not unbeatable.

“Ellen” was indomitable early on, debuting in 2003 and winning Best Talk Show for its first four years in a row (2004-2007). But then the television academy split the category in two, distinguishing between entertainment shows like “Ellen” and informative shows like “The Doctors” and “The Chew.

2018 Daytime Emmy Award Nominations Prove You Aren’t Missing Much

The 45th Daytime Emmy Awards nominations were announced today and after reviewing the lengthy list of nominees it’s clear it’s yet another round of same old, same old.

The long list of nominees can be found here, but its worth noting there are a few surprises.

Matt Damon is the latest male star to offer his two cents on the recent spate of sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood, and his disparaging comments were met with lots of eye-rolls - as well as a rebuke from his former girlfriend and costar Minnie Driver. In a recent interview with ABC News, Matt was asked about the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein - whose former company, Miramax, produced many of Matt's movies - and comedian Louis C.K.; he told Peter Travers that those accused are being put into "one big bucket" and that there's a "spectrum of behavior" when it comes to sexual misconduct. "There's a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?" he said. "Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn't be conflated, right?" Matt also

Fox's Grease Live! might have been a roaring success, but the reception for the network's musical take on A Christmas Story has been mixed, to say the least.
