Real Housewives of Atlanta: S11 EP3 Shamari De Voe Stumbles In


On Twitter, #RHOA fans were asking for the return of  Sheree, Kenya and Phaedra Parks

Shamari DeVoe meets the cast of RHOA

Takes a while to adjust to a new housewife, good or bad we have a relationship with the old housewife,so it takes a minute. Every now there an then, there is a housewife who’s is so likable, they immediately make you forget the old housewife.  Ericka Jane and Lisa Renna over at  #RHOBH and Dorinda Medley from #RHONY come to mind. 

Shamari DeVoes entrance was so poorly received last night  Tweeter was asking for Sheree Whitfield, Kenya Moore and where was PHAEDRA (Parks)!!!

Shamari DeVoe is married to the Legendary (so she reminds us several times ) Ronnie DeVoe, of New Edition and Bell, Biv, DeVoe, who at 51 hasn’t aged    She met him on a one night stand, and they have been together 17 years. (He is 11 years older)  She says, she is the one and only true wife to a legend so many other women are dying to get their hands on.   
She an Ronnie are going to become a power couple like Jay-Z and Beyonce.

 She is also a member of the group Blaque and a mother of uber cute twin boys.  She enters as a friend of Kandi’s. (She was at Riley’s baby shower)  With the help of Kandi they are going to relaunch Blaque.  Kandi wrote one their of the biggest hits.     

I think the turn off factor,is she enters larger then life, being too extra.   Several people on Twitter last night said, they wish they could fast forward her scenes.   Hopefully, she will find her footing, soon. 

The episode begins with the Porsha and the other newby, Eva Marcille at the gym.  Eva is workin to keep her peach by being shady as hell.  I noticed most of her shade is thrown Cynthia Baileys way.  “When was the last time you’ve seen a model with a big booty?”   One wonders, if she can hold her own against the heavyweights, Nene Leakes and Marlo Hampton. Its very clear she thinks Marlo is beneath her.

Gregg Leakes

NeNe & Gregg get good news in his cancer battle

We go with Gregg and Nene to a cancer center in Houston.   He ripps out my heart as he sings “Never give up and never give in” as he walks into the hospital.  Gregg isn’t sure about undergoing chemo as treatment for his colon cancer and wants to consider alternative medicines.  While they have successfully removed the cancer cells, there could be other cancerous cells floating around and the doctor believes chemo is the best treatment. 

Shamari Shade and Ladies

Kandi and Porsha are civil, the two are laughing .(who know’s) Kandi invites all the ladies to Shamari concert.   Even thought Shamari believes the WORLD knows her. Cynthia had to ask Kandi who she was and to point her out on stage.  After the concert is over Cynthia invites everyone to a barbecue.  Oops, I’m sorry a “Bailey Que”  

When Shamari and Ronnie (The Legend) comes over to the table, Nene is clearly not feeling her.  For some reason, Shamari asks  Ronnie  (The Legend) to critique Kandi’s performance with Xscape, which he does at the table in front of people he didn’t know.       For the record, Kandi’s net worth is more than Double the Legendary DeVoe’s.      So who’s schooling,who? 

Shamari & Ronnie give Kandi career advice

All About Dennis McKinley

Dennis McKinley

Everybody talks about everybody.  On a reality show, your words and expressions are memorialized in HD.

Carmon, Kandi’s bestie and former aid is now her insurance agent.   The Old Lady Gang’s restaurant was a hit and now they are slowly becoming a chain with a second OLG restaurant opening soon.  Carmon is meeting Kandi at the new site, to discuss business.  But first things first, a lil gossip. 

Across town, Porsha is meeting with her mom and still squealing’

The Topic for both groups is Dennis.  

Kandi has never met Dennis.  Atlanta is a small town and Kandi has heard things (can’t you just here Mama Joyce saying,” The Streets are talking’)    

At the restaurant and another woman appears, Jami, who also works for Kandi  ( A few years ago Porsha chased Jami out of a Christmas party and attacked Jami and later went into anger management-caught up?)     Jami’s friend had dated Dennis for more than three years   Kandi has “heard”  Dennis falls quickly in love.  He tattoos, his love interests names on his body.   Jami says her friends face is on Dennis’s body.  He likes to give Rolex watches.   Dennis likes to impress his ladies by having someone cook for his ladies.  Or has his sidepieces cook for his main lady.  Jami says you better check his receipts………..

Across town, Porsha’s mom says Porsha’s glowing.  Mom talks about Porsha’s big butt and the size of her new Rolex.  Porsha tells her, Dennis is tattooed her name on his leg and plans to put her face on his back. He’s also having freshly prepared meatloaf sent straight to her door! “This is for real! Like he ain’t goin’ nowhere,” Porsha’s mom is practically in tears about how Porsha finally found the perfect man who has made her so happy and content.

At the new OLG restaurant. Jami said her friend found out Dennis was dating Porsha at the same time.  Her friend found out while they were all in Africa at Shamea’s wedding.    According to Kandi (who had never met Dennis) said Dennis was also dating other girls at the same time.  Carmon tells Kandi to leave her mouth shut and “Don’t you say nothing.

Your Thoughts on the new housewife Shamari? and can Eva take Marlo Hampton in the shade wars……

Dahling Lisa Vanderpump, Leaving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?


https://www.usmagazine.com/wp
Dahling, Season 10? We’ll See 

After eight seasons,has the Crown grown too heavy for Ms Vanderpump?  or has her cast mates had enough? 

Is she or ins’t she leaving #RHOBH? only her dog Jiggy know for sure. 

On Reality TV, no man or Vanderpump is an island.   If your castmates have had enough of you and refuses to film with you, its OVAH?   Its all bout da drama.

In October ,when filming of the ninth season began, there were rumors about Vanderpump missing in action.   She did not attend Camille Grammer’s wedding with the rest of the housewives.  Those rumors were confirmed by castmate Lisa Renna who said on Instagram, Vanderpump hadn’t shown up for work in six weeks. 

The rumors are swirling, is she over her castmates? or are they over her?   She missed the France vacation and she and Kyle maybe at odds as the two close friends haven’t spoken in weeks.   They say she feels excluded, others say when she’s invited she doesn’t show.  Many of her segments were filmed without the other castmates  

Lisa Vanderpump  has had a rough year.  In May, her brother Mark, reportedly committed suicide in England. 

Lisa and Kyle are the pillars of the show.  They have been on the show since its premiere in October 2010.  Fans wonder if the show can survive the loss of Vanderpump?  However, should she leave RHOBH, she will still appear on Bravo on her very popular show Vanderpump Rules. 

So, if this her final season,we’ll know after the reunion. 

Kracking Up


Donald Trump GIF

 

Reality is slowly sinking into Prezy Poo.  He never really had a grasp on how government worked. 

Despite his best efforts he BLEW it.  He didn’t listen to those seasoned members of the GOP who advised him to talk about the economy, record unemployment. He instead went for FEAR, TERROR and MAYHEM.  As a result, many of his supporters bailed on him and went blue.

If he wants money for a Parade?  he may need approval from some of those low I Q members of Congress.

Money for a wall, that Mexico will eventually pay for? He may need approval from a one or two Mexicans.

What did you say about banning Muslims?  Again perhaps you should talk to the two Muslim members just elected to Congress?

 More than 100  women were elected in Congress last week.  Women were elected into the Senate, for the first time nearly 25% of the Senate is female.  More ladies will be heading States.  At one point in your administration you will need a WOMAN’s approval.  I’m sure you NEVER dreamed you would need permission from a woman.  Welcome to 2019 and beyond and remember, these women will outlive the men in your administration! 

Mr President, You have spent the last few years avoiding Americans. Your administration is filled with people who look like you.  Last last week America came to you. 

Congress writes the checks so , If you need any money, you will need approval from Gay’s, Native Americans, Muslims, Blacks, Asians and Mexicans, all Americans.

The Author of Boy Erased Hopes His Experience in Conversion Therapy Makes People Angry


image

Focus Features

“I’m aiming an arrow directly into the heart of America.” That was Joel Edgerton’s promise to Boy Erased author Garrard Conley from the very beginning when Edgerton began writing and directing the film adaptation of Conley’s vulnerable memoir about his experience with “conversion therapy.”

By: Elena Hilton\Esquire.com

It was a risk for Conley to share his story in the first place, let alone allow other artists to interpret his life in the form of an Oscar-hopeful movie. But thankfully he took the leap, because the trauma he endured at Love in Action, an “ex-gay” Christian ministry that attempted to change people’s sexual orientation, is something that America desperately needs to recognize.

 

Currently, 15 states and Washington, D.C. have laws to protect minors from “conversion therapy” practices, and the Trump-Pence administration’s bigotry-laden rhetoric and policies are a stark reminder that the fight isn’t over. “We’re getting so close to the finish line that I’m becoming more radical and more of an activist each day,” Conley says.

Conley’s Southern, ultra-Christian upbringing—his father became a Baptist preacher in their small Arkansas town when Conley was a teenager—is similar to so many other LGBTQ adolescents who are still being told they’re wrong for who they are. The hope is that this film, along with Conley’s 2016 book, will open people’s eyes to the real effects that bigotry has on lives.

Prior to Boy Erased’s limited theatrical release (it opens in theaters this weekend), I sat down with Conley to talk about what it was like seeing his memoir translated into a Hollywood film and how he’s used his experiences to become an activist for the LGBTQ community.

Joel Edgerton directs a scene in Boy Erased Focus Features

Joel Edgerton proved right away why he was the best person to adapt Boy Erased.

At first I was very nervous about the whole thing, partly because I hadn’t met a lot of movie stars—I’m just not in that world, I’m a writer. Just going into the meeting with Joel was stressful, but then I was like, “He’s a straight guy, what’s he going to do the story? We’ve been burned before.” But at our first meeting he asked to meet with other conversion therapy survivors in addition to me, and I loved the fact that he wanted to hear all of our stories.

Plus, I had just watched Loving, which he was in. It was a movie about the first interracial marriage and all the legal battles that went along with that, and he was using that publicity tour to talk about marriage equality now, much to the detriment to some of the family that was involved with the making of that film because they didn’t actually want that. [Edgerton] was like “I don’t care, I’m not going to work with a film that doesn’t recognize bigotry across the board.” So I already knew that he was a good ally, but he also asked if I wanted to write the script. I said I couldn’t write it again for a different audience and I don’t know how to “Hollywood-up” a story. So he wrote a script really rapidly, and throughout the process he made me feel better by always sending me the drafts of the script and asking if there was anything problematic or anything that didn’t feel right, and he would change it anytime I said there was an issue.

Conley fought to keep the ending of the movie similar to his real-life experience.

I think there’s a natural desire to have Russell Crowe’s character [Crowe plays Conley’s father] to come around and show what that kind of acceptance would look like. And I can see why that kind of editorial vision would exist, because it gives parents a path for rehabilitation. But I strongly argued for a closer truth, which is that it’s still complicated, and my dad’s not completely there yet. The film might lose a bit of money because it doesn’t have the redemptive arc for the parents that the studio originally wanted, but I pushed pretty hard on making it complicated at the end because I knew other survivors hadn’t had happy stories with their parents. So [Edgerton] changed that, and one of the producers was like, “Well, we might have just lost millions of dollars, but good job with your principles.”

                  Author Garrard Conley on the set of Boy Erased with Lucas Hedges

Kyle Kaplan/Focus Features

He was blown away by Lucas Hedges, who plays him in the movie.

Lucas is a dream. The first time we met, we were walking around DUMBO, and he said, “You know, I wasn’t going to do this, but do you want to come back to my apartment and talk?” He still has a room in his father’s [director Peter Hedges] house. So we went over there and he invited me into his childhood bedroom and said, “If you’re going to show me everything, then I need to show you everything.” And then he showed me his copy of my book, which was marked up on every page. I felt it was the greatest tribute someone who was going to play me could do. I was already pretty convinced, and then when Lucas started to share his identity on the spectrum with me—he wasn’t quite aware of where he was, but he knew that he wasn’t entirely straight—that was the last hurdle where I thought, “Okay, this guy can play it.

He’d explained to me a sense of shame that he’d felt, and he later talked about it in the New York magazine piece, and he wasn’t really specific about it, but he did tell me he that he thought he was fluid in some way. So he had the shame aspect, and the actual identity, so that was going to play well on the screen. And he’s phenomenal in it. [His performance] is understated in many ways, but it’s very accurate. The way he’s able to depict fear and shame on his face is actually really terrifying. He’s my favorite thing in the movie. Just watching him is mesmerizing.

Writing the memoir was an emotionally draining, but necessary, experience.

Boy Erased: A Memoir of Identity, Faith, and Family
RIVERHEAD amazon.com$10.87

I had to really look at it like a story, which is hard to do, because you have to cut through all the trauma and, in many ways, the false memories you’ve created to get over stuff and to go back to those places mentally which is incredibly difficult. And it’s harmful for the people around you—my boyfriend at the time suffered through a lot of episodes where I was not okay. He was always like, “Why are you doing this to yourself, why are you writing this?” And I didn’t always have a clear answer to that, it was just that I had to.

Any time you turn anything into a story, you lose the “life-iness” of it, because you’ve got to shape it into art, and that feels uncomfortable because it’s all true, all these things happened, but you’re shaping it for an audience. It feels like a bit of a sacrifice because I’m very precious with my memories and my internal account of things. And whenever you’re told that you’re crazy or corrupt in some way, you’re a little suspicious about putting it out there into the world again. But I did it because, from the very beginning, with the book and this film, the project has been to make something compelling enough to drive the conversation forward. I’d seen the same old arguments and the same old depictions of conversion therapy over and over again, which is it’s a joke, it’s a farce, and it’s not true. It’s soul murder, and I wanted that story to be told.

The memoir was released before Trump’s election, and Conley probably wouldn’t have written the same version now.

It’s a very anti-LGBT administration. It was so different, rhetorically, to humanize people like my parents or even the [conversion therapy] counselors when Obama was president than it is right now to humanize them, because it’s almost asking too much empathy from people who feel like their lives are on the line. I don’t know if I would have written the same book right now. I think I would have been angrier and I might not have been so forgiving, so it might actually not have worked as well to write it now.

There is kind of a weird irony in the fact that because all the stuff came out about Mike Pence supporting conversion therapy, it’s actually made conversion therapy a headline and now it’s easier to get people’s attention. I wouldn’t say I’m grateful for it, but it’s an opportunity. It’s unfortunate, but this is something the right has been invested in for a very long time. They’ll throw [the LGBTQ community] under a bus at any moment just to score political points.

We’re definitely at a turning point. It’s either going to go, hopefully, in the way of, “Let’s stop pretending respectability politics exist and let’s be as radical as we need to be in order to get shit done,” but it could easily go the other way.

He hopes people realize that conversion therapy and toxic masculinity affects everyone.

One of things I always say is conversion therapy doesn’t have to be done in a facility. If you’re taught to be a “certain type of man”, to act a certain way, and you’re taught by authority figures that being gay is evil, then that’s conversion therapy too. Conversion therapy can function as a metaphor for the kinds of brainwashing that we’ve all been given. Once you’re done looking at everyone’s side of the story, you can begin to see a system in place that harms everyone.

I often think about how I feel ashamed to be a man in this culture, and I talked to a trans activist named Thomas Page McBee who wrote Amateur and Man Alive about those feelings, and he was like, “You need to consider the fact that you’re harming yourself whenever you believe that masculinity is one thing and that it’s just the toxic brand.” It was just so eye-opening to hear that from someone like him who’d grown up conditioned to be a woman, then transitioned to a man, and had to deal with all that bullshit. I realized we need to look at the systems in place, and those systems can turn people into monsters.

Activists should recognize that there’s not a one-size-fits-all solution.

Faith is such a strange thing. It can be an incredibly powerful tool to survive something and it can also be something that keeps you locked in a fundamentalist worldview for a very long time. It covers up the moments of doubt. Getting out of that system is incredibly difficult. There are a lot of activists who call for people to move out of their towns and go somewhere else, but they’re often forgetting that people don’t have money, they don’t have the social capabilities to even do that without getting lost in the shuffle.

They also kind of ignore the psychological toil that comes from splitting from everything you’ve ever known. It’s not easy, and I think in larger metropolitan areas there can be a tendency to forget what it’s like to be on the ground in many of these towns across the country, and even if we don’t want to, we have to educate people who have perpetuated this bigotry from the very beginning.

Conley’s own relationship with the South and Christianity is still evolving.

I try to be a strong voice for the South being a complex place, because I do believe there are pockets of real, amazing, radical work that’s being done in the South. Even in the more fundamentalist communities, there are people within that are fighting the good fight. That being said, I think the South and many churches have not reckoned with their past. There are affirming churches who do not talk about what they did in terms of conversion therapy and the lives that were lost as a result of the choices that they made, and I call bullshit on that.

They need to hold themselves accountable, just like they did in terms of how they treated other races or what they did with slavery in the past. They should continue to talk about that, because unless you do, you’re not going to have any moral standing whatsoever. You’re trying to say “come here, learn how to be a good person,” but how are you going to do that if you don’t address the horrible things that you’ve done to the [LGBTQ] community? And if you just say, “I did it out of love, but it was wrong, and I’m sorry,” then that’s fine, I’m okay with that. But you’ve got to say something.

In terms of my own personal faith, I’ve actually begun praying a lot more lately, which is an unusual and unexpected development. I don’t necessarily believe in fate, but I do feel like I’m in a very intense position with a lot of responsibility in terms of how I represent the survivor groups, how I represent LGBT people through the culture at large, and how I can end conversion therapy, while not sacrificing our community to do so. Because that’s incredibly confusing and scary to me, I’ve just started praying, and I don’t know who I’m praying to, but I try to just ask for guidance in some way.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta S11 ep2 “South Peach”


 

Were into to second episode, and if it continues this way, its gonna be a smooth season.

Were still in Miami waiting for the other ladies to arrive from Atlanta to surprise Nene.

So far this season Porsha, who couldn’t buy a non-scandalous camera time last year is the face of RHOA so far this season.

Were in Miami, where Porsha is with her man Dennis.  Porsha is more than a little upset because Dennis doesn’t want to share his toothbrush.

Vanderpump Rules What GIF by Slice

 Porsha, who is too old told to act this Giddy over her man.  And she’s so pissed, over the tooth brush she picks a silly fight with Dennis  “I use it every day at home!” She doesn’t understand why she can’t use it now! Where was he and who was he with? Some real silly shit that repels a man.

The other ladies arrived and its time for annual the Housewives run for the room.   However, Porsha put kibosh by pre assigning rooms, every body is ok except the bitch without a Peach!  Marlo!

 

In what could have been a major scream fest between Marlo and Porsha worked out.

With Marlo’s clothes all over the Penthouse.  Porsha borrowed Marlo’s Versace and a few items.  The two laughed and after a night of laughter and had bonding.  Porsha said she never really disliked Marlo and Marlo said her bluntness can get her in trouble.

The ladies surprise is just what she needed.   Nene was the MC of the comedy set and Nene’s joke about Kandi licking coohie…it didst go over well.  Kandi smiled, but its too close too soon.

Nene opens a new Miami Swaggalicious boutique in a hotel two blocks away.   Marlo overacted and two blocks was an imposition and didn’t understand the Uber concept.  They made it screaming corns intact.

Meanwhile, Kandi DOES know Porsha’s boo Dennis.  She knows a LOT.  For now its underwraps.  For Now……………….

What do you think about the season so far?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta: S11 EP1 “Its a Ring Thing”


Nearly every housewives franchise has a love story.  In Atlanta, it is Nene and Gregg Leaks.  We’ve been through there divorce and we’ve seen them return in a wedding for the gods.

I have a love and hate affair with Nene, she has the fastest tongue in Atlanta and is funny as Hell.  Then there are moments where she is cu-cu for Coco-puffs and moments of great insight and caring.

The scene opens with Nene bringing a giant bowl of pills for Gregg.  Last year, Gregg had issues with his heart and the doctors were successful.  When he returned to the hospital with stomach pains, he was diagnosed with stage-3 colon cancer.   In the scene we see him with family and friends.  “When they cut my colon out, my heart got bigger,” Gregg says.       Typical old corny Gregg.  Nene of course rolls her eyes at him, but we hear her say  “I put on a brave face, but I have my moments.  If my car could talk, my car would probably be like, This bitch cries too much.” She’s back, baby!

Season 11 Episode1

Porsha, Porsha, Porsha

Porsha is thick and wider bodied, in a good way.  You could show a double feature on dat ass.  She’s got a new man, and she tells us  “The power of the tongue is real,”  Her man is Dennis McKinley who owns and operates a Hukkah lounge  and a hot dog restaurant.  They’ve been seeing each other for five months and talking engagement slash marriage. Yes, five months!!!     

We see them shopping for diamonds rings from 6 karats to 10 karats (and $145,000 to $552,000). While I smell some on camera fronting from the Hot Dog king.   Miss Porsha isn’t worried about the price tag BECAUSE  Dennis is “the boss of Atlanta.”   Porsha is as giddy as a second time bride could be.  She and  Nene  has mended their friendship.   Nene is working in Miami  and Porsha, wants the other housewives to join her has a surprise.

Cynthia Bailey

Has a new man, who works for Fox Sports in L.A.  Cynthia lets us know the new man has swam in the cool and refreshing waters of Lake Bailey several times.

Nene’s ‘SWAG

Boutique seems to be a little K-Mart-ish filled with too much clothes and not enough customers.  Porsha tries on an outfit so loud it could be seen by passengers on  a Southwest Jet at 35,000 feet.  Her twerking assets makes Nene laugh.   Lets hope she paid retail.

Eva

Eva is engaged and a wedding is soon.  We see several professional shots of her children and boyfriend.  She’s beautiful, but is there something there, there ?

 

Kandi

We see Kandi with members of Xscape receiving a Golden Note Award.  The award was by the America Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.   They brought the baby (Ace) with them, who was cranky because it was past his bedtime.    Papa Todd, gave Ace to Don Juan to care for while he was at the bar.

At  dinner, with the entire Burruss/Tucker clan.  Kandi tossed around the idea of  expanding the family. (she has unused eggs in the freezer)    There is something in the Burruss blood because ,Kandi’ daughter Riley told her in a mono no-nonsense tone.   No!  you don’t need no more children cause you barely have time for the children you have!!     Shy Riley, has a bit of her Grandmother “Mama Joyce” and her aunts Bertha and Nora.  Kandi can be a bit dull at times, I hope we get to see the Old lady gang this season.

Eva Marcille and Shamari DeVoe who was the lead singer of Blaque and wife of Ronnie (New Edition and Bell Biv-Devoe) are the newest peach holders in Atlanta.

Next week,we will get our first real taste of drama….

Roseanne claps back during ‘Conners’ premiere ‘I AIN’T DEAD BITCHES’ but internet gets the last laugh


Image result for roseanne barr

Roseanne Barr didn’t take her death well.

As the Roseanne reboot “The Conners ”  made its premiere Tuesday night and confirmed that the disgraced star’s character was good and dead by way of an opioid overdose, Barr shot back on Twitter, “I AIN’T DEAD BITCHES.”

The disgraced comedienne then ranted per usual about being fired from her own show and blasted ABC in a long, drawn out statement with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

 

Here is the full statement posted on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s Facebook page:

“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. That it was done through an opioid overdose lent an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show.

“This was a choice the network did not have to make. Roseanne was the only show on television  that directly addressed the deep divisions threatening the very fabric of our society. Specifically, the show promoted the message that love and respect for one another’s personhood should transcend differences in background and ideological discord. The show brought together characters of different political persuasions and ethnic backgrounds in one, unified family, a rarity in modern American entertainment. Above all else, the show celebrated a strong, matriarchal woman in a leading role, something we need more of in our country.

“Through humor and a universally relatable main character, the show represented a weekly teaching moment for our nation. Yet it is often following an inexcusable — but not unforgivable — mistake that we can discover the most important lesson of all: Forgiveness. After repeated and heartfelt apologies, the network was unwilling to look past a regrettable mistake, thereby denying the twin American values of both repentance and forgiveness. In a hyper-partisan climate, people will sometimes make the mistake of speaking with words that do not truly reflect who they are. However, it is the power of forgiveness that defines our humanity.

“Our society needs to heal on many levels. What better way for healing than a shared moment, once a week, where we could have all enjoyed a compelling storyline featuring a witty character – a woman – who America connected with, not in spite of her flaws, but because of them. The cancellation of Roseanne is an opportunity squandered due in equal parts to fear, hubris, and a refusal to forgive.”

But the internet got the last laugh by responding to Roseanne’s unhinged tweet:
