“What’s going on with me dating wise?” Silverman, 47, said to Kimmel, 50, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “I’m waiting for this tryst with you to be over.”
The pair, who had two romantic stints between 2002 and 2009, discussed their current and past relationships, including Kimmel’s marriage.
“Okay, Molly’s cute, she’s bright, she’s funny, she’s blonde, but come on!” Silverman quipped about his wife, Molly McNearney.
“I have bad news. We’ve been married for five years,” Kimmel replied.
The actress joked, “It’s not fair! She gets like new, woke Jimmy. I had Man Show Jimmy.”
“I was with Michael. We broke up over Christmas. He moved back to the U.K. and his life is really there and my life is really not there, but I love him to pieces,” she explained. “If he’s in town and we’re both single, we will make love.”
In February, Silverman announced on Twitter that she and Sheen “consciously uncoupled.”
“We just live in different countries & it got hard,” she tweeted. “Felt we should just tell y’all so u stop askin, ‘How’s Michael/How’s Sarah?’ ”
In 2016, Sheen had only great things to say about the stand-up comedian and told PEOPLE that “it’s fantastic to have her as a partner.”
“So we did say last season, ‘Can we please have a scene together?’ So I gave her a gynecological exam, which was interesting,” he said, speaking about his show, Masters of Sex.
