Bob Saget would be pleased with this acknowledgment, Kelly Rizzo says in response to the Emmys’ “In Memoriam” tribute.
Kelly Rizzo, who wed the Full House star in 2018, acknowledged on social media that she has “been a wreck all day waiting for this” after learning that Bob Saget would receive a lot of attention during the “In Memoriam” segment at the 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards.
The 43-year-old host of the Eat Travel Rock TV show captioned a video of the occasion, “But I know he’d be proud for this honour.” “This is all still so dang strange and unbelievable,”
On January 9, Saget’s body was discovered in his hotel room in Florida. The actor’s death was caused by blunt head trauma following what was probably an unnoticed fall. He was 65. About her grieving journey, Rizzo has been transparent. She admitted that she can’t say “the D-word” in May.
In a statement to her friend Amanda Kloots, Rizzo said, “I say, ‘The day everything happened.
He’s still my husband, she continued. It’s not just like, “Oh, he’s my ex-husband,” it’s more like… The relationship has changed. It is simply the way that things are.
Since Saget’s passing, Rizzo has maintained a close relationship with the three adult daughters he had with his ex-wife Sherri Kramer.
“So it’s sort of like a museum to your dad, so don’t freak out but yes, he’s everywhere,” Rizzo said as his daughters entered the house for the first time since she had moved into the new home just last week. “And then every now and then they’ll find me like talking to a picture, and they’ll be like, ‘Stepmommy Kelly, are you OK? ’”
At the Fourth Annual Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards in June, Saget received an Impact Award posthumously. Rizzo went to show her husband support.
She told People that “he was one of the pioneers in the realm of reality TV.” “I’ve never walked a red carpet without him before. It’s pretty peculiar. It still doesn’t feel right, but all we can do is try to be here to honour him and his legacy. I feel like he’s waiting in the wings and will say, “Honey, I’ll be there in a few minutes.” I only want to do it.
John Stamos, Saget’s Full House co-star, also paid tribute to him by posting a picture of the two of them during an earlier Emmys ceremony on his Instagram Story.
