As a kid, I was never much of a Full House fan. I mean, Danny Tanner was just such a miserable dude. The widower let his brother-in-law crash at his house rent free while he pursued a dead-end music career and banged every piece of tail under the sun until he met his wife and moved her ass into the home as well. We all know Joey Gladstone wasn’t paying rent either, that guy was a struggling comedian. Yeah, sure, Tanner may have swiped Kimmie Gibbler’s V-card when it became legal, but still. His life looked like it sucked.
Fortunately, Bob Saget does not share the same miserable fate as his on-screen persona. The 61-year-old comic and actor, who is divorced, told Closer Weekly that he’s finally in love again. Yeah, he’s just as shocked as you are.
“I didn’t think I’d have a relationship again. I was kind of in that ‘just work, make people happy and take care of your kids until they’re 90’ mindset.”
So which lucky lady has stolen the hear of one of the 90s’ most beloved sitcom dads? Well, that would be 38-year-old Chicago travel blogger Kelly Rizzo, who was introduced to Saget through a mutual friend.
“I don’t really see him as Danny Tanner,” she said of his famed TV dad character. “To me he’s just Bobby, my love.”
Smooth, Rizzo. Smooth.
“She’s just a remarkable person and she’s really talented,” Tanner, err, Saget said. Well done, buddy. I may not watch Netflix’s Fuller House, but at least I know Danny Tanner is getting laid.
