Roseanne Barr is not “miserable” while filming the reboot of her classic sitcom “Roseanne,” despite a completely fabricated report. Gossip Cop looked into the alleged behind-the-scenes drama, and we can exclusively set the record straight.

According to RadarOnline, the actress has been difficult while shooting the upcoming revival of her hit TV series, which ran from 1988-1997. A so-called “source” tells the site, “Roseanne is complaining that she is miserable and being overworked. She isn’t particularly excited about the return of her show… She would be perfectly happy tweeting from the comfort of her home and counting her money.”

The questionable insider adds, “No one is making a lot of money, and budgets are being kept very tight.” However, Barr has presumably made plenty of money over her long and successful career, so it’s unlikely she’d revive her old show unless she was passionate about doing so. Still, the outlet’s suspicious source continues, “If the reboot is a big hit don’t expect Roseanne to return for another season unless someone writes her a big fat check. She isn’t doing this for her health.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source involved in the production of the “Roseanne” reboot, who exclusively assures us there’s “no truth” to the webloid’s report. We’re told the actress is thrilled about the reunion. Additionally, Barr has been sharing many Instagram photos and videos from the set of the show, one of which features the cast and crew singing “Happy Birthday” to her. Among the other photos are Instagram pics of Roseanne and the entire cast laughing while reading the first script, and her smiling and hugging John Goodman next to an image that’s captioned, “Can’t wait for everyone to see the new show!” That’s hardly miserable.

It should be noted, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has had to debunk nonexistent tension on the set of a TV revival. Last year, we busted RadarOnline’s sister outlet, the National Enquirer, for making up a fake feud between the cast of the “Will & Grace” reboot. The alleged drama surrounding the “Roseanne” revival is equally fictional.
