Roseanne Barr is getting a reality check on Lifetime

Roseanne Roseanne Barr is about to one-up Old MacDonald.

Just weeks after we watched her get whacked by a log in that Snickers Super Bowl ad comes the announcement that the comedienne will appear in a new docu-series on Lifetime.

The actress, who had audiences laughing in the long-running sitcom “Roseanne,”  will give viewers a peek into her life as she runs her 40-acre macadamia and livestock farm in Hawaii. (Go ahead, read that sentence again).

In a statement, Barr had this to say: “I’m coming back down to earth and keeping it real.  They’ve said ‘Roseanne’s nuts’ for years, and now I’m going to make that a reality -– I’m all about nuts now, macadamia nuts!”

The Emmy-winning actress (and New York Times bestselling author) will also serve as an executive producer on the untitled series. The 16 half-hour episodes will premiere sometime this year.

It marks Barr's second attempt at reality TV. Her first time around was in 2003 with ABC in a reality show, "The Real Roseanne Show," chronicling the making of her ABC Family cooking program, "Domestic Goddess." Both projects were halted after she underwent a hysterectomy.

What do you think about Roseanne's return to TV?
