Sources said Roseanne knew the low score and it was "showing on set." A spy snitched, “Anyone can see she was losing it.”

The troubled funny lady has a history of explosive mental issues, including, by her own admission, SEVEN split personalities — and none of them are pleasant, said production insiders.

She was "flubbing her lines" and having "massive temper tantrums,” another source spilled, adding she was "stressing over every little thing.”

People around her feared for the worst. “She was snapping at people,” said the spy, noting no one knew if the show "would survive this."

Roseanne, 65, has been plagued with mental illness since childhood. Her parents checked their then-teenaged daughter into a mental ward at the Utah State Hospital in Provo, where she was held against her will for nearly nine months!
