Roseanne Barr is not happy with the executives over at NBC - where she was developing her comeback television series - and she evidently wants the internet to know the extent of her anger.
The comedienne took to social networking site Twitter to unleash her disapproval with the NBC suits, pointing out that she gets treated differently than younger women in the industry, despite her career: "women who have achieved far less than me are allowed to write their own shows, bit I’m constantly forced 2 work w a censoring ‘show runner.’"

The Monty Python gang want to work with South Park.
Terry Jones is reuniting with his old comedy collaborators John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Eric Idle for the Monty Python Live (Mostly) show, and he claims the controversial American animation is the modern-day equivalent of their iconic British sketch show, Monty Python's Flying Circus.
"It's so successful and brilliant. It makes me laugh. We'd like to do something with them but I don't know yet because it's early days for the Python reunion. Besides, I'm just getting used to being in my 70s," the 71-year-old star told The Sun newspaper.
Terry credits South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker - who have admitted the show's style of animation is inspired by the paper cut-out cartoons made by Terry Gilliam for Monty Python's Flying Circus and have cited the group's work as a major inspiration - for making the Pythons' reunion happen in the first place: "They sparked it off when they said they'd like to do a show with us - they were big followers of Monty Python. That sowed the seed of the Python reunion," he explained.
"I love Portlandia! I would do that show, in a heartbeat. I would love that. You know when Saturday Night Live did a sketch of The Walking Dead, and Bill Hader played me? He invited me to the after-party, and Fred [Armisen] was there, and I was such a big fan, I just spent the entire time trying to hug Fred over and over and over again. I think he thought I was a complete weirdo. He might be scared of me now... I'm a hugger, too. But it was literally like seven hugs, and he was looking at me like, 'Again? You want to hug again?' I might have hugged him to death. But I love the feminist bookstore skit. I love that whole show. It's awesome."

Charlie Sheen wants to make amends with Two And A Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre.
The 48-year-old star has offered an olive branch to his former friend - whom he fell out with after he was famously fired him from the program in 2011 - and promised to reach out to him in person following an appeal on Twitter: "Hey Chuck. I have an idea that u need to hear [sic] after I make amends to you and yours. Which I will do in person. xox C [sic]."
The post included an image of the a People's Choice Award the American series won in 2007 for favorite TV Comedy, where Charlie played Charlie Harper.
The decision to sack the Anger Management star was made following comments broadcast during a radio interview, in which he referenced Chuck's real name Charles Levine, calling him "Chaim Levine," adding that he was a "stupid little man." Charlie also slammed a number of Warner Bros. executives before the show's network, CBS, suspended the final four episodes of the season and fired him. He then filed a $100 million lawsuit against Chuck however the pair later settled out of court.
"I read that and I loved it and we'd gone through rehearsal and I could barely breathe in rehearsal and when we got to the show, I honestly thought that I would be fine. It seemed like if I take a breath first [it would be ok]…'and of course his mother,' and before the 'M' even came out of my mouth I'm like, 'I'm done. I'm just done.'"

Victoria Beckham wants to guest star on Girls.
The 39-year-old star reportedly told the show's creator Lena Dunham how much she loves the latest series of the comedy drama series and that she'd love to make an appearance. Lena, 27, is open to the idea of the former Spice Girl being on the show and has an idea for her to have a cameo as herself.
"Victoria said she would love a cameo in the next season. Lena said she would love that and work on creating a suitable role - most likely, Vic playing herself," a source said.
Victoria also plans to introduce her two-year-old daughter Harper - her child with husband David Beckham - to the show when she is old enough.
With a few of their veteran comedies now off the air, NBC needed some new TV blood for their line-up, so who best to ask for a new show than the creator of 30 Rock and one of the stars from The Office?
The network enlisted Tina Fey and her producing partner Robert Carlock for an upcoming show starring Ellie Kemper, which sees her as a woman living in New York City after having fled from a doomsday cult. Considering that the plot doesn't strike me as something that will be tickling my funny bone, it will be interesting to see Fey's spin on it.
Though the single-camera project is currently untitled, NBC has ordered 13 episodes to air next Fall.

Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne are in talks to bring back their reality TV show. The couple and their kids Kelly and Jack became household names when their MTV series The Osbournes aired between 2002 and 2005 and achieved record ratings and now they are set to bring the cameras back into their home to document their marriage and family life.
Jack, 27, has hinted at a return, telling The Sun newspaper, "We've talked about it. It's been thrown around a little bit. It's just a different vibe."
+ Octavia Spencer has been cast as the lead for the upcoming NBC remake of Murder, She Wrote. While on the one hand I'm rejoicing that there's one more woman of color starring in a network program, I can't help but worry that TV is going to fall into Hollywood's current habit of incessantly choosing to produce remakes over original shows.
+ Speaking of unoriginal television, it has only been 7 years since Charmed aired its final episode, but apparently executives over at CBS think that it should already be rebooted. I guess perhaps this is the price we pay for American Horror Story: Coven being so damn good.
+ Apparently people are still tuning into MTV shows, because the former music video network has renewed Catfish for another season. I suppose it beats putting out another show involving teenagers and their unplanned pregnancies.

Selena Gomez wishes she was still a Disney star.
The 21-year-old star singer-and-actress found fame on Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place - where she played young wizard Alex Russo - and misses her the years of teen acting as she makes a transformation into an adult star. "I miss it. I wish I was still a part of it. I think it was the perfect thing for me at the time I was 14," she said.
The brunette beauty insists she doesn't yet feel as though she has made the transition from teen star to adult artist. Despite starring in Spring Breakers, releasing her debut album Dance Stars and overhauling her style, Selena - who previously dated Justin Bieber - sometimes still feels like she's 15.
Being interviewed by JLS star Marvin Humes on UK TV show Lorraine, she said, "I think everybody has a journey and you feel you have to love at the end of the day. There is not really a formula. I don't really know if I have fully made the transition yet. I feel like half the time I feel like I'm 15 and then I feel like I'm 21 then I feel like I'm 30 when I'm sitting at home by myself on a Friday night watching the same episode of Friends."
