Tom Arnold

I Want NOTHING To Do

With Roseanne Roast

Don't count on hearing any awkward jokes about having sex with Roseanne Barr -- because her famous ex-husband Tom Arnold wants nothing whatsoever to do with her upcoming Comedy Central roast.

A rep for Tom tells TMZ, the actor will NOT be reaching out to Comedy Central to participate and will say no if the network reaches out to him.

The rep adds, "He has absolutely no interest in being apart of it." The rep explained the couple simply doesn't talk anymore, and that's not gonna change any time soon.

Tom and Roseanne were married from 1990-1994 -- and their split was notoriously nasty, culminating in a screaming match outside the "Roseanne" set in 1994.

Years later, in a 2010 interview, Tom said Roseanne saved his life. So who knows.

Maybe the man has actually got on with his life and just wants to let the past stay in the past. Good for him.

It's so true! She's the only reason he is famous. He wasn't a very good comic on his own. He should be thankful that they even asked him. Loser! I'm not even much of a fan of hers. Her reality show proves that she is completely crazy.

"He has absolutely no interest in being apart of it." That sounds like he DOES want to be a part of it. TMZ webmaster - back to English 101, amigo.

Honestly, tom married her- and stayed with her for four years. I understand they "don't talk anymore", however when she got your name out there and got you a bank account that you have even after the yelling match, and divorce....and and and...... give up a couple hours . After all she did (as you said) save your life. (too bad)

i remember years ago, tom saying that roseanne was disgusting and sexually harassing him. this is before they became a couple. he went to the dirt mags for help to keep her away and the next thing U know.. he loves her enough to tattoo her face on his ass...and have a third partner in their marriage.lmfao. i don't blame him for not being there. their relationship did not start with a solid foundation.

Oh, come on, Tom..you're a Jewish convert...you have to take the offer...it's in the Torah under the 13th law of acquisition. Or was that a Ferengi rule on Star Trek. I get the two cultures confused.

He ruined the Roseanne Show when entered the picture. He's some piece of work, he wants Nothing to do with Roseanne's Comedy Central Roast, but he loves the risduals from HER show.
