What Happened to Roseanne's Star?

Stan Freberg here. My friend Roseanne has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame--for that matter, so do I. But something unusual has happened to her star. Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again. Last year, I guested on Roseanne's TV show playing a recurring character, "Mr. Parkin," who was annoyed by Roseanne, mainly because she kept getting him fired. Parkin was coming back, but then Roseanne decided after seven years, she'd had enough. Well, that's show biz.

Now to her star on Hollywood Boulevard, which originally read "Roseanne Arnold." But then she split with Arnold. Oh-oh. After several years of negotiations, she finally got the "Walk of Fame" people to remove her old star, and replace it with a new one, reading simply, "Roseanne." Way to go, Roseanne!

With Hollywood marriages being what they are, could this start a trend? I'm going into the replacement star biz.
