John Stamos recently made headlines when he told People he once saw his ex-wife, Rebecca Romijn, as “the devil” during their marriage.
After divorcing Stamos in 2005, Romijn married Stand By Me star Jerry O’Connell in 2007; they’re still married and are the parents of twin daughters, Dolly and Charlie.
To Access Hollywood, O’Connell revealed he and his wife didn’t get any warning about the revelations in Stamos’ memoir, If You Would Have Told Me. “We find out about it just like everbody else,” the affable actor and Pictionary host said.
When pressed by co-host Kit Hoover on if he and Romijn discussed the situation, O’Connell replied, “It’s not really my place to say, Kit. I would rather my wife talk about that.”
Jerry added the quip, “My wife and I are getting along so well today,” before pausing for effect.
Stamos recently told People about his ex, “I just hated her. I couldn’t believe how much I hated her, and it ruined my life.”
The Fuller House and former Big Shot star called their “humiliating” 2004 breakup and subsequent divorce “shattering to me.”
The actor said he’d been drinking too much at the time. With some distance and sobriety, he said he saw things differently. “You start thinking… ‘Oh, she wasn’t the devil. Maybe I was as much to blame as her,'” he noted.
Stamos “straightened up,” and in February of 2018, married 37-year-old model and actress Caitlin McHugh, who gave birth to their son, Billy, two months later.
