Things are looking up for Tom Arnold. Just two years ago, the comedian — whose marriage (and subsequent divorce) to onetime sitcom queen Roseanne earned him a place in the National Punchline Hall of Fame — was battling one helluva midlife crisis: His career was in the dumpster (check out Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th) and his personal life, a joke (Remember MarryTom.com?).
Cut to 2002: Arnold has a steady gig (on Fox Sports Net's Best Damn Sports Show Period) and is in love again (with political consultant Shelby Roos). Even the public seems to be rooting for the erstwhile Jackie Thomas: A recent TV Guide Online poll found that only 5 percent of readers wanted to see Arnold follow Lance Bass into outer space. (Hey, progress is progress...)
So, how did Arnold get his life back together? Who cares. We've got other pressing matters to discuss.
