Tim Allen Defends Roseanne Barr, Asks Very Dumb Question About Comedian’s Firing

Tim Allen just doesn’t understand.

Speaking Thursday at the Television Critics Association’s press tour, the veteran actor basically asked those in attendance was simple question:

Can’t someone just be overtly racist in public without suffering consequences in this country?!?

Allen spoke on the topic of Roseanne Barr’s firing by ABC with journalists at the aforementioned gathering, with his remarks generating both headlines and many raised eyebrows.

(Barr, of course, was let go by the network and had her revived sitcom canceled after she referred to an African-American political advisor as an “ape.”)

“I go away back with Rosie and that’s not the Rosie I know,” Allen said, expounding about his friend and her situation as follows:

“She was the most diverse and tolerant woman I’ve ever known for a long time. Whatever got in her head, isn’t the Roseanne I know.”

Allen then expressed sympathy and shock for the ways of the world, especially when it comes to supposedly funny people who dare to utter controversial statements.

“It’s a very icy time. I’m a veteran comedian for 38 years and I’ve never seen it, like Lenny Bruce said at the Purple Onion, ‘We’ve gone backwards.’ There are things you can’t say. There are things you shouldn’t say.

“Who makes up these rules? And as a stand-up comic, it’s a dangerous position to be in because I like pushing buttons. It’s unfortunate.”

Who makes up these rules?

We can answer that ridiculous inquiry, Tim.

In Roseanne’s case, ABC executies made up the so-called “rules.”

Roseanne was an employee who was fired by her employer for actions the latter deemed inappropriate and/or actions it felt no longer made her a worthwhile employee.

It’s that simple.

People get fired from their jobs everday. Roseanne is just one of those people.

Allen is one of the few outspoken Republicans in Hollywood.

In May of 2017, he said he was “stunned” by the cancelation of the sitcom on which he starred, Last Man Standing, hinting strongly that he thinks it was yanked off the air due to his Conservative views.

(It has ran for six seasons at the time and ratings had been falling for years.)

Allen also once compared life in Hollywood for a Republican to life in Nazi Germany for Jewish people.

He’s back in the news now because FOX has actually brought back Last Man Standing, hoping it finds a similarly impressive audience to the one Roseanne enjoyed before the network axed that show’s comeback.

As for Barr?

She has oscillated between being regretful for her actions and blaming others for taking them out of context.

She recently swore to Sean Hannity that she is not racist and she has received support from non-Tim Allen celebrities as well.

“Roseanne Barr is my sister in comedy and she is my universal sister and what I won’t do… is throw her away for making a mistake,” Mo’Nique told KTLA last Friday, July 27, adding at the time:

“We’ve all said and done things, baby, that we wish we could take back… but when you’re in the public eye, you can’t.

Said Barr to Fox News the day before that:

“I’ve apologized a lot. It’s been two months. I’ve apologized and explained and asked for forgiveness.”

Oh, well, if it’s been two months… nevermind then!

All automatically gets forgiven after 60 days, right?

IS SHE WORTHY OF FORGIVENESS?

Kenya Moore Deletes Baby Bump Photo as Fans Question Her Pregnancy

As much as Kenya Moore has slammed divorce speculation, some fans still think that Kenya is faking her marriage and her pregnancy.

These ridiculous rumors are clearly getting under Kenya’s skin.

In fact, the RHOA star was apparently so upset that she deleted a sweet photo of her and her husband … possibly because he wasn’t wearing his ring.

The photo that we have for you below looks totally innocuous.

But Kendra has deleted it from her Instagram page without warning or explanation.

In it, she and husband Marc Daly are enjoying a relaxing evening of golf.

Some fans noted that Kenya appears to be showing a bit of a baby bump. Others noted that she appears to be concealing it.

There was some whining in the comments about Marc’s wedding ring being off of his finger — he removed it to play golf, folks.

There is nothing in this image that should lead to it being deleted from social media, and yet … it is gone.

On Friday, Kenya addressed the conspiracy theorists who seemed to believe that she was fabricating her pregnancy or even her marriage.

“@bet @celebrity_insider_org @theinquisitr shame on you for constantly regurgitating the slanderous fake news from #radaronline.”

She then lists some of the stories that have gotten under her skin.

“Fake Husband, Fake Pregnancy, Fake Boyfriends, Fake Storyline, FIred, Fake Divorce.”

She hates false stories and she hates seeing them recycled.

“At least be effing original with your hateful lies.”

She says that she understands being a subject of speculation, but that she wants her family left out of it.

“I’m used to you all making up stories to get clicks off my name but LEAVE MY FAMILY ALONE.”

She signed off, writing:

“#thatamrsdaly2you #blacklove”

Forget the conspiracy theories. Kenya is pregnant, folks.

Some fans weren’t sure if she was really pregnant when she made the announcement at the reunion.

“We will definitely be welcoming a boy or girl in late this year.”

When Andy asked about her due date, Kenya grew a little shy.

“Well, I don’t want to talk about the details because I’m just still — I’m just still very nervous about everything.”

This will be her first child. Notably, Kenya is 47 years old.

“And I just want to get past a safe place.”

Very understandable.

Fans have been on the lookout for Kenya’s baby bump for a while, without much luck — she’s been, well, a little shy.

This has led to all sorts of speculation, including the idea that perhaps she is using a surrogate.

Kenya saw that and responded on Twitter.

“No surrogate but maybe my next one.”

Surrogates — or probably a gestational carrier, in this case — are a smart, though expensive, choice for people whose pregnancies may be particularly risky.

When fans asked why she is being so shy, Kenya wrote on Instagram:

“I was not planning on speaking about my pregnancy this early as due to my age I’m high risk.”

She hastily deleted the comment.

Does Kenya deleting the golfing photo mean that there’s trouble in her marriage or with her pregnancy?

We can’t rule it out, but … there may be a simpler explanation.

Maybe she got tired of seeing all of the hateful comments and the spiteful speculation about her husband and her pregnancy — two major sources of happiness in her life.

She may be a public figure and a reality star, but that doesn’t mean that she has to listen to people’s chatter about her on her own Instagram page.

Right now, Kenya has to do what’s best for her health and for her baby. She can delete whatever she wants.

Chris Marek Settles the Matt Roloff Feud Question Once and for All

Is there or isn’t there… a feud?

Do they or do they not… get along?

Will they or will they not come to blows… over Amy Roloff?

Chris Marek has finally spoken out and provided an answer to these questions, which continue to circulate all around the Internet.

Despite there not being any outward bad blood between Marek and his girlfriend’s ex-husband, Matt Roloff, fans of Little People, Big World continue to pit this pair against each other.

Earlier this week, for instance, Amy Roloff shared a photo of her and Marek, who have been a romantic item for about a year now.

It was simple. It was sweet. It should have been harmless.

But it led followers to somehow attack Matt, claiming he never showered Amy with the sort of affection Chris shows her on a regular basis.

In other words: social media users want there to be a rivalry between Marek and Matt Roloff.

But does one actually exist?

“To be honest, Amy was concerned in the beginning about how Matt and I might interact,” Marek admitted in a recent interview with Radar Online.

However, he continued…

She has “no concerns about that now. Everything is good. Matt and I get along just fine.”

Oh, well… okay then.

That’s far less dramatic and interesting from the perspective of a celebrity gossip website.

But it’s definitely a positive thing for the Roloffs as a whole.

Marek and Amy started dating about nine months after she finalized her divorce from Matt.

The Little People, Big World stars announced to the world in June of 2015 that they were splitting up after 27 years and four kids together.

“We are proud of what we have accomplished together including raising four wonderful children who have grown to become remarkable adults and building our strong and ongoing successful businesses,” they said, adding:

“Our kids and our ever growing family, and the love and support we have for them, will be our priority.

“We will continue to work together side by side in the daily responsibilities for our many current ventures.

“We would like to thank our family, friends and all our fans for their continued support and understanding during this difficult time.”

And this is exactly what has happened.

Amy and Matt remain integral parts of each other’s lives and spend plenty of time together with their kids and grandkids, as you can see in this photo from January:

There are no hard feelings here, as much as a certain segment of the population may want there to be.

Matt is actually dating Caryn Chandler, the former manager of the family farm who was once sort of close to Amy.

Has this created a bit of tension between all parties? Probably.

But have they done an excellent job hiding it and is none of this really our business and we should therefore just butt out and get excited instead for the return of Little People, Big World on April 3?

Yes.

Roloff Thanksgiving Photo Raises One MAJOR Question

The cast of Little People, Big World had a whole lot to be thankful for this year.

Over the past six months, the Roloffs have welcomed two precious and healthy babies into the world:

A boy named Jackson Kyle, welcomed by Tory and and Zach back in May; and a girl named Ember Jean, welcomed by Audrey and Jeremy in September.

Just as special for this family, nearly everyone was available for Thanksgiving on Thursday, gathering at matriarch Amy’s home for a lovely feast.

The eldest female Roloff shared the above photo on her Instagram account and included with it the caption below:

My kids. This is what I’m thankful for. Love them forever and always. So happy to have Molly in town and Joel arrives Wednesday.

Jackson is sleeping. There is always something/someone to be thankful for in our lives!

What a sweet picture, right?

No Internet user is denying that (how could they?!?), but some have analyzed Amy’s words, along with an image/caption posted by Tori, and wondered something about the TLC stars.

First, Tori’s photo:

Now, Tori’s caption:

My people… the Roloff boys really know how to pick ‘em. I love the holidays and how they bring us all together! Love you sisters and MIL! #seestorsfolife

Notice how Amy referred to everyone as her “kids?”

And how Tori used the word “sisters?”

These references have left some astute followers curious as to whether Jacob Roloff has proposed to girlfriend Isabel Rock.

Chatter over the status of these love birds has been going strong ever since Isabel said she’s facing a “life changing decision” a few weeks ago.

Considering how long these two have been together and how in love they appear to be, it wouldn’t surprise us at all if Jacob had popped the question and Tori really does have another official “sister” in the family.

(Or will in the near future, that is.)

Many Little People, Big World viewers are just happy Jacobi s back in his family’s good graces.

He was estranged for them after he quit the show last summer and accused his relative of being phony.

But he’s since admitted that was a tad bit immature and has been spending more and more time with everyone of late.

Does this mean we’ll see Jacob on future episodes of Little People, Big World?

That’s another question we can’t help but consider.

One thing is for certain:

Jackson, Tori and Zach will be on the new season.

Another thing is for certain: they are a certifiably adorable family!

The same can be said for the entire Roloff clan, really.

While you marvel over the above Thanksgiving photos, take a look at a full album of cute snapshots below!
