Roseanne Producer Wants You To Forget About That Outrageous Hitler Photoshoot The Star Did In 2009

The producer of Roseanne wants you to watch the ABC revival and judge it on its merits — not the wacky shit its series star has done over the years.

Shit like that controversial 2009 photoshoot, which showed the actress taking out freshly baked people-shaped cookies from the oven, dressed like Hitler.

The photos, which resurfaced on social media following last week's highly rated premiere of Roseanne Barr's rebooted sitcom, are reportedly from the "Germany issue" of Heeb magazine — a satirical Jewish publication that ran between 2001 and 2010.

The concept was apparently Barr's idea. She defended the shoot in 2011, claiming the cookies were supposed to be an allegory for how common and "every day" holocausts have become since WWII.

Of course, showrunners couldn't have both actresses playing Becky in the reboot — the show already joked about its multiple Beckys in the original run — so, they cooked up a way to get Chalke into the action. Specifically, with her on-screen doppelganger!

According to EW, Chalke will be playing a middle-class married woman named Andrea who hires Becky (Goranson) to be her surrogate. Writers hinted at a plot twist that not only leads to some drama for the Conners but also shows how important both women were to the beloved sitcom.

Chalke, unsurprisingly, loves the new role showrunner Bruce Helford created for her. She told EW:
