Somers Learns Of Saget’s Death On Live TV

Somers was being interviewed by host Angela Bishop on Australia’s “Studio 10” morning show on Monday morning, which was Sunday night in the U.S. During the interview, Bishop broke the news about Saget’s death, leaving Somers in shock.

“I’m hearing it from you,” a visibly stunned Somers said, according to Daily Mail

Somers, 75, went on to explain that she became friends with Saget in the 1990s when they were filming shows nearby one another. 

“I would appear on his show from time to time, because right next door at Warner Bros. was my set for ‘Step By Step,’ where I starred with Patrick Duffy, and we would go over to the ‘Full House’ set, and it was kind of this wonderful thing that was going on at Warner Bros. at that time,” she recalled.

‘I Can’t Believe It’

Somers then said that it is “so sad” to hear that Saget died.

“I can’t believe it,” she added. “He’s so young. That’s just … I’m so, so, so sorry. He was a great guy. Really nice.” 

Saget was found dead in his room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando, Florida on Sunday after performing a show there the night before. 

“There was no foul play, nothing odd at all. All we have been told is that he died in his sleep,” a source close to Saget’s family told Daily Mail. “We are all just devastated. I talked to him Saturday afternoon. He had a great show Saturday night. He was the most generous, lovely guy. It’s just tragic.”
