Wow, imagine what this child will look like with THAT gene pool. I loved Josh from day one of his tenure as Chase. There’s such a sweetness and goofy humor to him that’s really endearing. And Chase is a much nicer person than I. I would have had prissy, self-righteous Michael arrested for assault after that potentially dangerous knee-to-the-groin move at the gym. Totally unwarranted, uncivilized, and morally bankrupt. Typically Corinthos, I guess. Best wishes to the Swickard family!

GH and ‘Full House’ Alum John Stamos ‘Gutted’ and Shares, ‘I Am In Utter Shock’ Over Death of Bob Saget

This past weekend brought with it more heartbreaking news in celebrity deaths in only the first week of the 2022.  Beloved actor and comedian, Bob Saget was found dead in an hotel room in Orlando, Florida at the age of 65.

Saget played Danny Tanner on ABC’s Full House sitcom from 1987 through 1995, reprised the role in its revival, Fuller House, in 2016 and hosted America’s Funniest Home Videos. 

John Stamos co-starred with Saget in the comedy series as as Danny’s brother-in-law and best friend Jesse Katsopolis. Soap fans also recall that Stamos started his TV career as Blackie Parrish on General Hospital.

Upon the news of Saget’s death, John took to Twitter and shared his grief expressing: “I am broken. I am gutted.  I am in complete and utter shock.  I will never ever have another friend like him.  I love you so much Bobby.”
