While Roseanne Barr has previously described her macadamia nut farm in Hawaii as her own "little piece of heaven," it appears that all is not well in utopia.
The 58-year-old has filed a temporary restraining order against neighbors Roree and Richard Oehlman on Hawaii's Big Island — claiming that since she purchased the 46-acre farm, they've been nothing but trouble. From TMZ:
"According to the docs, Roseanne claims the problems began from the moment she moved in — when her neighbors declared they don't want any 'Kaballah-studying [that means Jewish] people here on the Big Island.' Roseanne says Roree claims to have guns — and often harasses and even threatens the comic."
It gets worse. In addition, Roseanne says that one night she awoke to find two of her four goats had been shot to death. When pressed, her neighbors allegedly responded with "That's what happens when you piss people off."
The hearing will be held March 10, but a judge has granted a preliminary restraining order in advance of the court date.
With so much drama, I imagine TLC will be itching to start filming its recently announced 16-episode reality series following Barr and her family around the farm.
"I'm coming back down to earth, and keeping it real," she said in a statement. "They've said 'Roseanne's nuts' for years, and now I'm going to make that a reality — I'm all about nuts now, macadamia nuts!"
The as-yet untitled program will premiere later this year.
