    Roseanne Barr

    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.

    Yep I agree. Love these roasts. There are about five of them on Netflix streaming right now.

    Found some more info


    And Comedy Central's next roast victim is... Roseanne Barr!

    The comedienne will be roasted in a special that will air on Sunday, Aug. 12 at 10/9c. The event will be taped on Saturday, Aug. 4.

    "Although Roseanne appears to be a demure, soft-spoken woman eternally committed to the status quo, we believe under the surface is an explosive, trail-blazing cultural revolution. We are honored to Roast her," Kent Alterman, Comedy Central's head of original programming and Production, said in a statement. "Celebrating Roseanne's unprecedented achievements in comedy and television will surely inspire us to make this Roast more reminiscent of the classic roasts, where the intimacy of friends jousting with each other came through."

    "All I can say is good luck finding anything about me to make fun of... I mean, I've never made a mistake or offended anyone in my life!" Barr added.

    about 15 years past her relevance. I don't picture her taking roasting very well

    While those who have followed Roseanne's career, or at least her tabloid-worthy antics, can guess the barbs the roasters will throw, fans are now learning which celebrities will do the roasting. Entertainment Weekly is reporting the roast will include slams by Carrie Fisher, Seth Green, Sharon Stone, Katey Sagal, Anthony Jeselnik, Amy Schumer and Jeffrey Ross.

    The actual lambasting of Barr will happen Saturday, while the roast will be aired for public consumption Aug. 12.
