Tom Arnold reportedly had an agreement that his ex-wife Roseanne Barr wouldn’t badmouth him if he appeared on her Comedy Central roast, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
He also wanted her to say something nice about him, the story says. Barr reportedly called him to assure him she didn’t plan any surprises. According to the story, the pair hadn’t spoken since 1994.
During the roast, Arnold ribbed her, saying, "She may not be the perfect wife, but she’s literally the worst ex-wife on the planet.” But he also added, "Roseanne, you were my Johnny Carson … thank you for the thumbs-up and thank you for inviting me to sit on your couch for a little bit.”
Of Arnold, Barr said, "If I can bury my roiling, boiling ceaseless hatred for the likes of Tom Arnold, maybe there’s a chance we can have world peace," according to the story.
