At the Scleroderma Research Foundation event in New York City, Bob Saget, the man who once played single dad Danny Tanner on the ABC hit Full House, spoke candidly and jokingly about his former TV daughters Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. The actor ,who is currently on Broadway in The Drowsy Chaperone, hosted the event, which is close to his heart as his sister died of the disease 13 years ago.
Despite the evening’s well-intentioned setting, the conversation always seemed to turn to those Olsen twins. When asked about the rumored romance between Ashley and Lance Armstrong he joked, “I know nothing! I am in The Drowsy Chaperone; I’m not a chaperone.”
But he later added, “I’ve known Lance for a little while, we did a benefit together for ALS together in Vegas, he’s a remarkable guy, and I’ve known Ashley a while, so — I’m not good at the tabloid news at all, I apologize.”
And what about Bob’s love life? Well he’s found love in Michelle Galtchi, “I’ve been dating for a year and half, which is a lot. That’s not her age, either. I mean, she’s older than that.”
Very funny, Bob!
