Roseanne Barr Roseanne

Recorded and released by the comedian's spiritual adviser, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, Barr spends much of the 35-minute interview, which was recorded the day after ABC cancelled the series and fired her, apologizing for her behavior on social media.

It looks like Roseanne Barr really regrets her racist tweet that pretty much ruined her career and lost her her show that she was both the star and a creative executive of.

"I've always worked with black women and worked on my racism and their anti-Semitism, we've all done.I've done that since the '60s and you know, it still creeps in", she said. "I never would have wittingly called any black person... say they are a monkey".

"I went to her twitter page and I said 'Please forgive me".

"I definitely feel remorse", Barr, 65, said as she broke down in tears. I horribly regret it. "But I have to face that it hurt people". "I didn't mean what they think I meant, and that's what's so painful".

Shortly after the cancellation, she also blamed the tweets on her use of Ambien, though even the drug company refuted this excuse. I would never do that and I didn't do that. I didn't do that, although they think I did. "If you want to hire me, know that". "I have black children in my family". "And I regretted it before I lost everything and I said to God, 'I am willing to accept whatever consequences this brings because I know I've done wrong.' I'm willing to accept what the consequences are. I'm very sorry but I don't think that, I never would do that". "People make that mistake about me all the time". It will feature all of the original cast except for Barr herself, and she will have no hand in the show creatively or financially.

More importantly, though, she discussed her remorse for the pain and suffering it caused to those offended by her words and those whose jobs were put in jeopardy by them. "And, I do. And I have".
