Roseanne Barr, a comedienne, became famous for her sitcom 'Roseanne,' which ran between 1988 and 1997. She played a potty-mouthed, working-class mother of three. John Goodman played her on-screen husband. Barr met her real-life husband on the show - Tom Arnold. They were married between 1990 and 1994 and had no children.
Just before they wed, Barr divorced television writer Bill Pentland. The two had wed in 1974 and have two daughters, Jennifer and Jessica, and a son, Jake. As of May 2011, he lives with Barr and her boyfriend Johnny Argent in Hawaii.
Barr has a son, Buck, with her third husband Ben Thomas. The two were married between 1995 and 2002. Barr also has a daughter, Brandi Brown, from a previous relationship. She had put her up for adoption in 1971 and the two met each other again about 18 years later.
In May 2011, Barr detailed her experience developing and starring in her own sitcom in a New York Magazine column. She said she suffered a nervous breakdown amid a feud with producers of "Roseanne." Barr also said she hated the clothes she was told to wear on camera, argued over her lines and cried on set. She also spoke about having bipolar disorder 'as well as several other mental illnesses.'
After 'Roseanne' ended, Barr voiced a character in the 2004 film 'Home on the Range' and guest-starred on the show 'My Name is Earl' in 2006.
Barr returned to television in July 2011 with the Lifetime Television reality series 'Roseanne's Nuts,' which saw her running a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii, where she currently lives with her boyfriend Johnny Argent, son Jake and two dogs, Moxie and Zim. The show was canceled days after its season 1 finale on Sept. 16, 2011. She also details her life experiences in her book 'Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm,' which was released in January 2011.
Roseanne is set to return to network TV in 2012 with a new NBC show. The pilot for the series, called 'Downwardly Mobile,' was picked up in January.
