The reality show followed Barr as she tended her 40-acre macadamia nut farm in Hawaii. It launched in July, initially airing Wednesdays nights, but never caught fire in the ratings and was moved to the Death Slot Friday nights. The final episode aired last week.

'Roseanne's Nuts'Fans know that Roseanne Barr has been struggling with her weight since she became a star -- and even before that -- but now she's under doctor's orders to do something about it on 'Roseanne's Nuts' (Fri., 10PM ET on Lifetime). However, exercise and Roseanne have never gone well together.

"I hate the fact that I'm supposed to act like I like it," Roseanne told her smiling trainer. "That's not gonna work for me. It feels like s***. I can't lie through it."

And then, she decided she'd quite simply had enough and walked inside declaring that she was done and the trainer needed to be fired. As Roseanne pulled off and drove away, the trainer rounded the building and asked, "Is she coming back?"

Roseanne Struggles With a Speech on 'Roseanne's Nuts' (VIDEO)

Roseanne and boyfriend Johnny Argent on 'Roseanne's Nuts'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.

Roseanne's NutsThis week on 'Roseanne's Nuts' (Wed., 9PM ET on Lifetime), star Roseanne Barr went out of her way to live up to the title of her show, impulsively buying a truck in order to distribute vegetables to the homeless, much to her family's disapproval.

The idea was nice, in theory, but Barr's daughter, Jenny, was there to be the voice of reason for her headstrong mom.

"I'm just gonna drive it around and give people food," Barr explained, to which her daughter reasonably pointed out, "I think that's illegal."

'Roseanne's Nuts'Greg Cipes is an actor, voice actor, and musician, but right now he's living in a tent in Roseanne Barr's yard on 'Roseanne's Nuts' (Wed., 9PM ET on Lifetime). While Barr seems to be mostly amused by his antics and out-there personality, the same can't be said for her son, Jake, and domestic partner, Johnny.

"Greg represents everything I hate about people," Jake said.

The two couldn't even describe him properly, instead stating that you have to see him for yourselves to understand him.

"What do you think of that, being old and surfing?" the 58-year old asked some of the guys who were there to help. When they told her "old" was all in her head, she retorted, "No, it's in my body, too. Trust me."

She learned a few basic moves and then she was ready to get into the water, but not before taking delight at her friend Greg's swim attire. "Look at your underwear," she laughed.

Roseanne Sings the National Anthem, in Tune, at a Little League Game (VIDEO)

'Roseanne's Nuts'Anyone who was alive in 1990 remembers when Roseanne Barr sang 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at a Major League Baseball game. The rendition was horrible, she was out of tune, and then she wrapped by spitting and grabbing her crotch.

So it was with some nervousness that we watched her agree to tackle it again on 'Roseanne's Nuts' (Wed., 9PM ET on Lifetime).

What happened, though, turned out to be a genuine suprise. Granted, this was for a Little League softball game, so we knew she would be on her best behavior, but we didn't expect her to be on-key.

Roseanne Discusses Marriage, 'Roseanne's Nuts' on 'The View' (VIDEO)

Roseanne talks about her relationships on 'The View'If you, like Elisabeth Hasselbeck was on Thursday's 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), were wondering why Roseanne hasn't married her longtime boyfriend Johnny Argent, look no further than the title of her new reality show, 'Roseanne's Nuts.' Roseanne's relationship with Argent is a big part of the show, as the pair run a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii.

Hasselbeck asked Roaseanne if the couple had talked about marriage, since they've been together for eight years. "It has entered the conversation, but, you know, I'm a three-time loser. I've been married and divorced three times, that's enough." She says Argent is "a fantastic man" and that the relationship works well without marriage. "Here it's been eight years and I don't hate the guy," she said. "I'm shocked. Then the other thing is, I actually care what he thinks. It's new for me."

Roseanne also shared some bonus advice she's given her kids: To never to have kids of their own, because, "They'll just screw up your life." She does love her grandkids, though. Which means her kids didn't exactly take her advice to heart.

At one point, after going into a verbal tirade against some trees she was trying to knock down, Roseanne said to her boyfriend Johnny Argent, "Not being able to control your temper is kind of a curse. It has gotten me in a lot of trouble and ruined a lot of good things in my life."

Barr's temper on the set of 'Roseanne' is the stuff of Hollywood legend, so she decided to take her problem to a local healer, who promised to burp out Barr's "stuck energy."
