ROSEANNE BEGS DON’T LEAVE ME!
isgraced star Roseanne Barr has suffered another setback following the cancellation of her hit sitcom. m. US magazine Star reports her long-time love Johnny Argent has rebuffed her marriage proposal.
In hot water over her racist tweets aimed at former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, the 65-year-old comedian immediately turned to Johnny. But even he’s distancing himself from the actress as the controversy continues to simmer.
“Roseanne has gone so far as to propose herself on more than a few occasions,” says a source. “But Johnny always laughs it off and asks her why a pair of senior citizens would need to get married.”
It’s believed the couple – who met in 2002 when Johnny entered a writing competition on Roseanne’s blog – are holed up on their Hawaiian property, a private 5000-tree macadamia nut farm.
“Johnny is deeply concerned about Roseanne’s mental health,” a source tells Star. “Between the Twitter scandal, the show’s cancellation and the backlash, he fears she could suffer a breakdown.
“He’s doing everything he can to be a supportive shoulder to cry on, but Johnny has no intention of marrying Roseanne – not now, not ever.”
“Johnny has no intention of marrying Roseanne,” says an insider.
