There are times when you can speak one name and say volumes about a person -- and so it goes with Roseanne. As a wife and the mother of five, not only is the comedian a domestic goddess in real life, she used her stand-up comedy experience to play one on TV. It took until the '80s for the powerfully funny Salt Lake City native to break the stereotypical "TV Mom" mold created by the likes of Harriet Nelson and Donna Reed.

After a critically acclaimed network debut on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Roseanne became a key player in the world of entertainment. Few tabloids were printed in '80s and '90s that didn't feature Roseanne's off-camera exploits prominently. The short list: The success of, controversy surrounding and public debate over her eponymous ABC sitcom; her divorce; her tumultuous relationship with comedian Tom Arnold, and the effect that union and its demise had on the show's cast and crew. Roseanne's proclamation that she was "America's greatest fear: white trash with money!" seemed to be prophetic indeed. Many of the trials of Roseanne's private life would find their way into the scripts of the show. Probably the most notable example of this was the day she dropped Arnold's last name and the credits for the show listed every cast and crew member by first name only.

Roseanne has appeared in over two dozen shows, is an Emmy Award winner, a four-time American Comedy Award winner, and has her own website,
