Tom Arnold: Took No Money in Roseanne Divorce, She 'Saved My Life' (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Dec 7th 2010 5:25AM
Tom Arnold Talks Roseanne Barr on 'Chelsea'When visiting 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), Tom Arnold talked openly -- and positively -- about ex-wife Roseanne Barr. "How much money did you get from Roseanne [in the divorce]? Are you allowed to talk about that?" asked Chelsea Handler.

"It's public record: None," answered Arnold. "It was a choice because, you know, I had step-kids, and I wanted to be able to look myself in the mirror in a few years ... The truth is the woman, you know, she saved my life ... It's not that I'm such a super-duper nice guy, it's just the right thing to do."

And another thing. Go back and do some research about all the nasty things he said about her after their divorce. Roseanne recently said on her website that he had better stop talking about her. I think he was afraid of her so he goes on tv and lies and says he didn't get anything which is a big lie. Roseanne is also embarrassed that he screwed her over big time. She didn't make that same mistake with her last husband. I think she had a prenup with him.

Tom Arnold is a damn liar! And why he is lying about this at this late date is beyond understanding. You are right Tom. It IS public record. You got over 50 MILLION DOLLARS because Roseanne married you without a prenup. He is embarrassed because people have been talking alot in the last year about how much these people got. You don't think he is living in Beverly Hills because of his acting career. Give me a break.

Not exactly the "right thing to do" to cheat on her with her personal assistant after she saved your life. And, by the way, your acting "ability" did not come even close to the rest of the cast of "Roseanne." Clearly, she gave you a role on the show and allowed you directorial input out of love. A gift you rewarded her by embarassing her and disrespecting the marriage. No need to tell us your not a "super-duper guy." You proved that years ago.

You right. People don't change. People don't mature. People cannot seek redemption. Your worldview is a sad one.

He acknowledges his mistakes, and tried to do the right thing. Why be bitter about a relationship that wasn't your own?

I was never a Tom Arnold fan, but I smiled at what he said. What a nice guy. Then I read the positive comments here - yes, actually POSITIVE comments. What a day.

I like Tom Arnold, however I think he took alot of her money when they were married and spent it on coke. I know he is clean and sober now, but when they were married he was an addict. Where did the money come from to support his habit?

I believe he is well aware of what happened during the marriage which I am sure played a part in his decision not to take any money.
