Roseanne took to Twitter for the first time since Halloween to debunk rumors about her health and to let her fans know she is healthy and alright.


A man who claimed to be Roseanne’s former 66-year-old assistant ‘Frank,’ called Sputnik News radio host Lee Stranahan while filming a live Periscope video and alleged Roseanne had suffered a heart attack.

The comedy star posted a picture of herself to Twitter where she posed in a pirate-themed T-shirt and printed leggings on Saturday night with the caption, “I'm fine.’ An hour later she added:

"I was the victim of a prank. I've had no medical issues. I'm spending time at home with my family and relaxing."

Lee Stranahan from Sputnik News later stated that he was ‘genuinly upset’ by the call that turned out to be untrue. He also added that he had been in contact with Roseanne in the past and that the phone number and Roseanne’s name popped up on the caller ID when the caller phoned him. Whether or not Stranahan was in on the prank on Roseanne is unclear.

But Roseanne had mostly kept to herself after being fired from the comedy show ‘Roseanne,’ which got revived as ‘The Conners.’ However, during the latest episode, there was a bittersweet moment with a plot twist when Becky (Lecy Goranson) announced that she is expecting, explaining the reason behind her recent nausea.


Father Dan, (John Goodman) fired Becky from her construction job after she told him about her pregnancy which resulted after a one night stand. With her life not going as planned Becky missed the unique comfort of her mother Roseanne and said, “I wish mom was here.”


After the premiere episode of ‘The Conners’ aired, Roseanne took to Twitter to comment on the episode. The producers used the first episode to ‘kill off’ her character, where the opening scene shows the family mourning her death after an apparent opioid overdose.

Fans reacted with shock at the way Roseanne’s character got pulled from the show. Roseanne later commented in a joint statement with her friend, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and called the way she died in the show as “unnecessary,” “morbid,” and “grim.” But also went on to say that they wished “the very best for the cast and production crew of ‘The Conners.’”
