Barr infamously tweeted a comparison of Jarrett to the film "Planet of the Apes" and the muslim brotherhood.

When Sean brought up Roseanne's past tweets about Catholics along with her Nazi photo shoot, Roseanne joked", "I hate everyone equally.

Tearing up at times, Barr said, "I want people to like me".

'Here's what I have to say, let's talk about it, ' Barr said as she turned to face the camera. "That's what was in my head".

Hannity asked Roseanne what she would say to Jarrett if she were able to get on the phone and talk one on one with her. And, you know, I'm sorry that you feel harmed and hurt.

"If she's watching, I'm so sorry that you thought I was racist and that you thought my tweet was racist", Barr said. "But what I would ask is we don't throw her away". "It cost me everything-my life's work, everything". "I've apologized a lot".

'Address her and not just her, but people in the community who are so outraged about it. Address them from your heart and tell them, ' Hannity said. "It was Memorial Day, I had 2 beers", she told Hannity.

"I don't suffer from it any more", Barr corrected.

Roseanne also spoke with Rabbi Shmuley more about being ousted from her ABC show. and says the real tragedy is she had noble plans for Season 2. including hiring African-American writers.

As a result, the actress said she was shocked when the tweet was not interpreted this way and that people called her racist.

ABC has since confirmed it will broadcast a spin-off called "The Connors" - featuring cast members including John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf - after Barr relinquished any creative or financial involvement.

Appearing on Hannity, the disgraced TV star explained the tweet regarding Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett was political rather than racist, and again stated that Barr thought Jarrett - who is of African-American descent - was white.

She didn't know Jarrett was Black.

She expressed interest in talking to Jarrett, or perhaps working out a way to find a "teachable moment" in an encounter with her. But she also expressed pride in the ratings success that the "Roseanne" revival had, saying, "They can't take that away from me no matter what's happened". "I mean seriously. She needs a new haircut".

"I have a different view of that", Barr replied.
