After Bob Saget‘s sudden death, his wife is talking about why she chose to sell the home they shared.
In January 2022, the actor and comedian died at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, after getting a blow to the head. He was 65.
After more than a year, he and Kelly Rizzo sold the home they shared in Los Angeles for $5.4 million.
Rizzo has now spoken out and said that the late Full House star is still a big part of her life, even though she no longer lives in the house.
“It’s such a strange thing because of the home situation and because Bob is still so present in my life in so many ways,” she said on Wednesday’s episode of The “Tamron Hall Show”. “Pictures of him are all over my new home. It’s almost like a museum about Bob. But he’s still around, you know. I always look at videos of him. I always see pictures of him.”

Rizzo, who is 43 years old, said she recently learned something that made her decide to move out and sell the house “about grief,” she said, adding, “Something about the home you shared can be very upsetting, even if you have wonderful memories there, even if it was such a positive experience — which it was, he loved our house — and even if it was such a positive memory, but when someone dies, the home itself can be a situation. So, that’s why it was great to start over.”
“I didn’t know that until recently,” she said.
The high-end mansion was first listed for $7.765 million in June, just six months after the actor and comedian had died.
The modern home, which is 6,608 square feet and was built in 1964 and redone in 2003, has a lot of space. The home has a grand motor court, a three-car garage, a pool, a spa, and an entertainment area with a barbecue.
Saget moved into the estate after he bought it for $2.8 million in 2003.
In April of last year, Rizzo told them that she had moved out.
“So yes, I moved, you figured it out,” Rizzo said in an Instagram Q&A session, according to Yahoo!
When asked about her new place, Rizzo told the outlet that it was “very cheery and bright.” She also pointed to pictures of her and Saget that were on the counter.
In January, it had been a year since Saget had died.
Rizzo wrote for PEOPLE only and said, in part, “Every day, I remember him both as my sweet and cute husband, who was my best friend and did everything he could every day to make me feel loved and special, and as the world saw him. He was a great comedian, someone who knew how to bring out the best in people, and a kind man who only wanted to help others.”

She went on, “I miss how sweet and adorable he was. I know that not everyone saw it, but he was so cute. I miss how he treated me like I was the only woman in the world, and I’ll miss how he looked at me all day, every day. I will miss how happy we made each other and how many times a day we said “I love you so much.” I’m very thankful for that.”
Concluded Rizzo: “I want people to know that Bob’s only goal in life was to make people laugh and keep them entertained. He only cared about making people happy. He was also very passionate about his cause, The Scleroderma Research Foundation. It was his life’s work.
So, please remember him as a comedian who loved people and wanted to make them laugh, and as a man who never hesitated to give back and help others. He was a GREAT man for sure.”
