Dis­graced 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.”

So­phie Monk ap­peared to be show­ing the strain of host­ing Nine’s new dat­ing show Love Is­land last week, puff­ing on a cig­a­rette dur­ing a break in film­ing.

The makeup-free star, 38, looked stressed, paus­ing to close her eyes and check her phone as she lit up on her ho­tel bal­cony.

Since ar­riv­ing in Spain, So­phie has copped crit­i­cism about her lack of in­volve­ment on the show. Evicted Is­lan­der Char­lie Taylor added fuel to the fire last week by re­veal­ing he barely saw her dur­ing his time in the villa. He told Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa, “I’ve seen her twice in the last eight to nine days. In the first and last episode, I saw her.”

“It’s not about me,” So­phie hit back on Instagram. “I’m ad­dicted to the show! But my job is to not get too in­volved.”

When­ever the pretty blonde ap­pears on screen, view­ers have been quick to cri­tique. One viewer wrote, “So­phie sounds like an ab­so­lute bo­gan and has no idea how to speak or read lines.”

“She is an em­bar­rass­ment,” said another.

So­phie has also sparked con­cern for her health af­ter look­ing no­tice­ably slim­mer – per­haps a sign she’s strug­gling to deal with the pres­sure of the host­ing gig, for which she’s be­ing paid a ru­moured $1 mil­lion.

In the first week of film­ing, the singer en­dured a 20-hour day, and told her Instagram fans, “I lit­er­ally live out of my suit­case.”

The lonely star has also been home­sick, say­ing on her Instagram story how she misses her fam­ily.

“My neph­ews and niece make me so happy. I miss them,” she wrote, adding a sad face.
