Roseanne

My Ex-Husband Is A Conniving A-Hole

2/25/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Roseanne Barr claims her ex-husband is a piece of GARBAGE ... who threatened to sabotage their son's education unless she PAID for her ex and his NEW wife to live like royalty.

Basically, Rosie is pissed that ex-hubby/bodyguard Ben Thomas wants the comic to pay for him to fly out to Hawaii for 10 days every month -- along with a new wife he met in the Philippines -- so Ben can visit the former couple's 15-year-old son.

Roseanne claims when she decided to move to Hawaii, she always expected to pay for Ben to fly out to visit their kid -- but "him alone."

So when Ben came back from a recent trip to the Phillipines with a new wife ... a wife that Roseanne and her son had never met ... Rosie claims she was shocked when Ben demanded the comic also pay for the new wife to accompany him during his monthly trips to Hawaii. 

A clearly bitter Roseanne notes, "[Ben] has a history of going to the Phillipines and bringing home a woman, and marrying and divorcing her after a period of time."

She adds, "What [Ben] was asking me to do was to provide him and his new wife with a 10 day all expense paid first class honeymoon each month, under the guise of visiting our son."

As TMZ previously reported, Ben claims Rosie signed a contract in which she agreed to the arrangement -- but Rosie says she was "coerced" because Ben was threatening to block their son from attending a prestigious private school in Hawaii unless she played ball.

Rosanne sucks at finding men. She shouldn't have to pay for his gold digging whore wife. That's not in the court order, is it?

I wouldn't want to pay for my ex-husband AND his new wife either - why doesn't she put her son on a plane to visit Ben, maybe one weekend a month, then for a month in the summer?

This loud-mouth sings the same tune about all of her exes. She's a man-hater by definition.

Poster #5 is right - I'm sure this "news" is timed to coincide with her new show. In fact, I'm pretty sure I've heard this info before somewhere else.

She can't honestly expect him to be separated from his wife 1/3 of the time. If she didn't want this expense, she shouldn't have moved his child so far away from him.

I used to like Roseanne and her comedy routines until she started seeing some shrink who convinced her she had blocked memories and started drugging her. Now she's just a crazy old broad who is no longer funny.

She moved to Hawaii as a giant F U to him, she knew he couldn't afford it and wanted to have control over him and make him beg for every scrap. If Camille Grammar can extract huge sums from Kelsey, then it is only fair that Roseanne can do the same. It's not about the money, airfare to Hawaii is nothing, she spends more on pork rinds per month. Pay up fatty.

There is not enough money in the world to compensate that poor man for having to "service" that ugly tub of a woman.

The "new" wife was not part of the settlement. Only pay for him to visit his son and make dam sure that he visit's his son for the whole 10 days. She get's what she deserves. She has been married so many times, how can she keep all the ex's seperate and all her payment's to them straight. LOL She is a moran.
