It was not an easy decision for Roseanne, especially when the mass media found out about the adoption and threatened to bring the whole story to the public. Barr didn’t want to wait until her ‘dirty laundry’ will be revealed. She hired a private detective who found her daughter.


Soon afterward, the mother and daughter met. Despite the fact that they led separate lives for almost seventeen years, Roseanne and Brandi immediately felt that special bond between them. Barr told in an interview with People magazine about their reunion:

I turned around and felt this powerful magnet. We looked at each other, and we started running toward each other. We embraced and wouldn’t let go of each other, hugging and crying.


Later, Brandi got a job as an assistant producer of Roseanne show.
