She's always been brutally honest, and now Roseanne Barr is about to get even more real: The comedian has landed a new Lifetime reality series about her life on a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii, reports Entertainment Weekly.
"I’m coming back down to earth, and keeping it real,” Barr says. “They’ve said ‘Roseanne’s nuts’ for years, and now I’m going to make that a reality — I’m all about nuts now, macadamia nuts!”
The former "Roseanne" star runs a 40-acre nut farm on Hawaii’s Big Island with her son Jake and her writer-musician boyfriend Johnny Argent.
According to a press release for the series, Barr "uses a take-no-prisoners approach in shaping a Utopian dream for herself and her loved ones.”
"Roseanne is funny and brutally honest," says Lifetime president and GM Nancy Dubuc, "and our audience will relate to her decision to go on this adventure and create an entirely new life for herself."
