Though Metcalf is most probably single at the moment, her relationship with Roseanne cast Tom Arnold. It was in May 2018 when Arnold was a guest on The Haward Stern Show. He shared with Howard Stern that he briefly dated Metcalf from the late '80s until the early '90s. 

"The night we shot the pilot, yes, Roseanne was in the front seat getting romantic with John Goodman. I was in the backseat. Roseanne looks back and I'm holding hands with Laurie Metcalf and then we're having a great time."

Roseanne Barr who is also the writer of the show called him the next day into the office where she clarified Arnold that he cannot date the actors in Hollywood as per rules.

He explained,

"I was like, 'Oh, OK...I apologize. That's the rule of Hollywood I would not violate it.' And then I couldn't date Laurie Metcalf. And little did I know Roseanne would eventually make me marry her...I could never tell how women like me but apparently if they're really, really mean to me...I appreciated that."

Since it is all past, the relationship between Metcalf and Arnold just faded away as time passed by.
