Every Hollywood Star Reacting to 'Roseanne' Cancellation

"Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen," the troubled comedian says in new interview.

Roseanne Barr may already be on the verge of another TV comeback.

The sitcom star, who spurred ABC's cancellation of recently rebooted "Roseanne" by posting a racist tweet comparing a former African-American Barack Obama adviser to an ape, said on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's podcast Sunday that she's been offered "many" more projects.

"Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen and I feel very excited because I've already been offered so many things," Barr said. "I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we'll see."

ABC announced last week that they greenlit a spin-off series, "The Connners," without Barr's character. Meanwhile, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert and company will return.

In the interview, in which Barr primarily talked about her Jewish faith, the comedian also shared that she signed away her rights to the show without asking for payment as an act of "penance."

"I didn't ask to be paid off," she told Boteach. "I asked for nothing, and I just stepped away, because that is penance. I put a lot of thought into it."

"I thought signing off of my own life's work and asking for nothing in return, I thought that was a penance," Barr continued. "Sometimes you ask people what do you think should be done to you knowing what you’ve done wrong and it seems that people always know what should be done to them."

"I just knew that was the right thing and I want to do the right thing because I’ve lived my life, most part of it, to do the right thing for all people, not just Jews," she added.

Barr explained that she "didn't want to hurt the new show" and the cast that she worked with, especially Jayden Ray -- the 9-year-old black actress who played Roseanne's granddaughter in the reboot.

"I was very upset about hurting things that I care about and hurting people that I care about," Barr said. "Specifically, the little girl who played my granddaughter. She is African-American, and she loved me and I loved her."

"I did not want her to not have a job because she's great. I did not want her to think badly of Jewish people, and me specifically," she continued. "I wanted Jayden, specifically, to have her job. Because I love her. I did not what her to suffer because of me."

The rabbi also pressed Barr on if she had apologized to former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett for the offensive tweet that sparked this mess, but Barr said she was still "praying for the right words."
