Roseanne Barr is less than happy with Hollywood and her place in it and she has taken to Twitter to vent. The 61-year-old went on a lengthy tirade last night, which seems to have been prompted by a failed attempt to develop a new TV show.

Among other things, Barr wrote to her over 220,000 followers (warning: strong language ahead):

the women in hollywood cannot fall to their knees to suck dick fast enough.

I'm never going to work in television again. I'm never going to even attempt it. I feel as if I've been insulted/assaulted for over a year.

actually, for many years-from my first reality show to my second and two failed development deals. Don't call me-I won't call you. I'm gone.

Not ONE word remained of any ideas I had. I was constantly 'corrected' as if I had no track record whatsoever. I'm enraged over all of it.

I don't have the emotional stability to withstand being manipulated and lied to anymore-now that I'm old.

newsflash: Yes, I do have mental health issues. Decent ppl refrain from bullying, lying to, manipulating & taking advantage of ppl like me.

one thing I've learned in Hollywood-every time someone tells me I'm a genius-tht means I am going to get fucked.

Then this morning, the TV personality admitted:

anyway, no more drunk tweeting late at night for me!

Just this weekend, the New York Times published a joint interview with Roseanne and Mindy Kaling in its style section. In it, Barr says: "I have a lucky life. Yeah, I’m content. I like content better than happy, for sure."
