Roseanne Barr's story is one that might inspire young girls like the ones she was charged with speaking to on Wednesday's episode of 'Roseanne's Nuts' (Wednesdays, 9PM on Lifetime). But according to her boyfriend Johnny Argent, the first draft of that story probably looks pretty ugly.
Argent tried to help Roseanne with the speech, but she resisted him much of the way. "I'm giving a speech tonight to girls, and who better to help me write that speech than a 62-year-old cranky curmudgeon such as John Argent," she said.
Argent wondered how Roseanne fought her way to the top in show business with such poor writing skills. "Sometimes when I look over Roseanne's early drafts of her writing I think, how could somebody that smart come up with this?" he said. "I'm learning disabled, for sure, replied Roseanne. "But you know, that's why I'm smart."
Despite her cursing him out and a technical snafu that threatened a meltdown, their arguments actually seemed kind of sweet, in a curmudgeonly sort of way.
