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.

Wouldn't it be a safe bet that Rosanne would NEVER approve Arnold being on? It would be great comedy, but...

The two blew a personal/professional relationship with the awesome Arlyne Rothberg -


-The greatest agent-manager/lawyer:


-In the history of show business.


I'm still coming-to-terms with that...


If you're lucky-enough to have Arlyne Rothberg helping and advising you -


-How do you BLOW that?!


How is it possible NOT to be the most appreciative and grateful person/people on the planet?!

I can't wait to see this roast! I love Comedy Central Roasts. And for all you people saying "what the fu*k did Roseanne do that was so great?" Well let's see... I don't see any of you having a top rated television show. So what if it was years ago? Still more than many of you have accomplished. I like Roseanne and can't wait for the roast :)

For the record Tom Arnold has achieved greatness in his own right -


Roseanne was once the world's-hottest-comic.


Her rise was meteoric, instant and sudden.


How does one handle all of that -


And could you or I have done any better?


Doubt it.

Tom Arnold wouldn't even have a career if it wasn't for Roseanne...true story. Drop the pettiness, go crack a few jokes about your ex, then thank her for the fame, A-Hole!
