WATCH: 'Roseanne' Star Who Never Watched Finale Shocked By Dan's Death
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Once actress Lecy Goranson left the role of Becky Conner on "Roseanne" for good, she never looked back -- literally. During a HuffPost Live interview with Michael Fishman, who played Becky's younger brother DJ on "Roseanne," and host Ricky Camilleri, Goranson revealed that she has never seen any of the show's controversial final season, including the series finale. It may seem unbelievable that Goranson never checked out what she was missing on the show, but it rang true when Fishman spoke about the "Roseanne" finale, which revealed that Conner family patriarch Dan (John Goodman) died from a heart attack -- a twist Goranson never knew about until Fishman said it on HuffPost Live. "I'm embarrassed. I don't even know that he passed away," she said during the interview. "I'm like, 'He passed away? Oh god, that's horrible!'" Goranson, who played the Conner's oldest child, left the legendary comedy series in its fifth season to pursue a college degree. She was then rep ...

Roseanne Roast: What You Didn't See On TV
Huffington Post - over 4 years
There were plenty of memorable moments during Comedy Central's "Roast of Roseanne" special on Sunday, but as is the case with many TV events, we're usually more fascinated by the segments that don't make it to air. (Just ask NBC.) With so many zingers to fit into one special, it's inevitable that certain things end up on the cutting room floor, but one of the most intriguing omissions? The roasts from two of the comedienne's on-screen kids, Michael Fishman and Lecy Goranson, were cut from the broadcast. Was it because of time constraints, or was it just because the pair was more awkward than funny? Watch the clip here and decide for yourselves:

PIC: Roseanne Barr Reunites With Sitcom Kids at Comedy Central Roast
US Magazine - over 4 years
Conner family reunion! Well, almost. Roseanne Barr was the guest of honor -- and the brunt of many below-the-belt jokes -- at a Comedy Central roast taped at the Hollywood Palladium Saturday night. PHOTOS: 90s TV stars then and now And though the full special won't air until Aug. 12, pics from the bash confirm that the comedienne, 59, reunited with a couple of her kids from her eponymous sitcom: Namely, Lecy Goranson (who originated the role of Becky Conner) and Michael Fishman (D.J. Conner). John Goodman (her onscreen hubby Dan), Sarah Gilbert (Darlene) and Sarah Chalke (who filled in for the role of Becky during Goranson's colliege sabbatical) weren't on hand for the roasting. Titled simply Roseanne, the groundbreaking sitcom loosely based on the star's own pre-fame life went off the air in 1997 after nine blockbusters years. One surprise guest? Featured show cast member and Barr's ex-husband Tom Arnold, whose vicious 1994 divorce with Barr made headlines at the time. ...

    Age 17
    Goranson exited the series in 1992 (the start of the show's fifth season) to pursue an education at Vassar College, though her schedule eventually permitted her to continue appearing part-time as Becky.
    More Details Hide Details Under the new arrangement, the show's producers and writers had to take care to write scenes for Becky sparingly. Goranson's exit resulted in Becky's eloping with her husband, Mark Healy, who was played by Glenn Quinn. Becky would be seen via the phone briefly on some occasions as she lived out of state. In the next season, although not at the beginning, the producers decided to bring the character back. Goranson was still unavailable, so Sarah Chalke was brought into the role. When the show reached its eighth season, Goranson managed to schedule things so that she could work as Becky, replacing Chalke. Goranson appeared continuously at the beginning but mid-season it became a problem. On two occasions, Goranson had to pull out of episodes in which Becky was intended to appear, so Chalke took over the role once again. These episodes include the family visit to Walt Disney World and Darlene and David's wedding, episodes in which Becky was needed. Goranson appeared again toward the end of the season; however, she decided not to continue following the end of the eighth season. For the ninth and final year, Goranson did not return to the show as Becky Conner Healy, leaving the role to Chalke for the final season.
