Today at Flavorpill, we wished that the world had more adorable skydiving grannies like 82-year-old birthday girl/lifelong daredevil Judy Wade. We discovered that Mad Men screenshots and Arrested Development dialogue go surprisingly well together. We couldn’t believe that ABC thinks that they can replace Roseanne Barr with the likes… Read More
As you might remember, we were pretty excited about Roseanne Barr’s return to prime-time TV with Lifetime’s Roseanne’s Nuts, a reality series that chronicles her life as a macadamia farmer in Hawaii. Two weeks in, we are pleased to report that it does not disappoint — there’s drama, profanity, humor, tenderness, and ample nuttiness, too. The highlight of the two episodes that aired last night was a scene that had Roseanne singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at a Little League game. Yes, the folks in charge of kiddie baseball actually handed the mic to a woman famous for butchering the national anthem and then grabbing her crotch at an MLB game back in 1990 — and it’s a good thing they did! Roseanne redeemed herself with a respectful rendition that also proved she isn’t a bad singer. Watch her nail it after the jump.

As big Roseanne Barr fans, we have to admit that our most anticipated TV premiere of the summer isn’t Curb Your Enthusiasm or even The Hour; it’s Roseanne’s Nuts, the Lifetime reality series that follows Barr’s adventures as a macadamia nut farmer in Hawaii. Vulture has posted a few clips from the show, and while they judge it to be “nuts,” we think it looks like everything we hoped it would be — namely, Roseanne swearing like a sailor, bossing everyone around, and generally being the smartest, crankiest lady in the room. Watch three snippets of Roseanne’s Nuts and follow along as we enumerate what we enjoy about the preview after the jump.

Today in Sarah Palin news: The state of Alaska will release 24,000 pages of its former governor’s emails to members of the press who have requested them (note: they’ll have to pay the shipping fees for the five boxes, which weigh 55 pounds apiece). Last night in Sarah Palin news: She took a break… Read More
