on Monday Jimmy Kimmel Live, Host Jimmy Kimmel wore his heart on his sleeve when he remembered his good friend Bob Saget. The Fuller House star and comedian died unexpectedly on Sunday in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed. He was 65.
In a pre-recorded segment for his show, Kimmel burst into tears several times and admitted, “I’m sorry. I recorded that 14 times and I only … ”
“Bob was the cutest, he was the cutest man … I’ve had so many wonderfully friendly and supportive texts and emails, calls from Bob,” Kimmel said of Saget. “He always had a compliment. He would write sometimes just to tell me he loved me.”
Kimmel added that Saget and his wife Kelly Rizzo would always be dressed to a party. “He had something funny to say about everything and nothing bad to say about anyone. Never, ”said the nightly host. “If there were people he didn’t like, he kept it to himself. Unlike me, he was a good person.”
The emotions took over as Kimmel talked about how Saget and Kimmel would talk about being fathers together.
“In an email we talked about our kids and I have them here. He wrote, ‘One night let’s have some meat and some damn good drinks and talk about how lucky we are to have them.’ “said Kimmel, pulling himself together. “And we’ve done that many times. When my son was in the hospital, Bob checked in a lot. So I want to send all my best to his daughters, his wife Kelly and his friends who loved him so much. “.”
Saget leaves behind his wife and three daughters Aubrey (34), Lara (32) and Jennifer (29) from a previous relationship.
