The Truth Be Told

Roseanne and Jackie are disturbed about the feeding frenzy among the media since the Conners won the lottery. They're amazed that many of the stories are outright lies. But they're extremely excited about the bidding war for rights to the Conners' story for a TV movie, and Roseanne and Jackie agonize about what they should wear to the meeting. At the meeting Roseanne learns that the producers' main concern is ratings and they want gorgeous actors to portray the Conners, and are anxious to bend the truth to make a more interesting story. They let Roseanne know that the Conners' blue collar existence is not what will get viewers to tune in. Meanwhile, a tabloid reporter pays a call on Bev, Joyce and Leon, and they naively reveal a wealth of information about Roseanne's life and past.
