Now that we’re officially a few days into 2016, we feel like it’s safe to tell you that our obsession with Fuller House has hit an all-time high.
The classic ’90s reboot is just a little over a month away from premiering on Netflix, and yet we’re still getting constant casting news about the sitcom!
While almost the entire original Full House cast is coming back, John Stamos got into a bit of a feud with his on-camera nieces Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen after he called them out for passing on the project.
Except… they never even heard about it in the first place!
The Grandfathered actor addressed the apparent confusion while speaking with Howard Stern on his radio show Monday, saying:
“I think there was some confusion. They said first I didn’t ask them. And I didn’t personally, but I was told they were asked… So I had a knee-jerk reaction and said, ‘Bullsh*t, I did ask them!’ And they got upset, so I did call and talked to Mary-Kate and explained what the show is going to be and told them I’d love for them to be on there and they decided not to, which I respect.”
After the radio host suggested that the 29-year-olds think they’re too famous now to be part of the show, John actually defended his former costars, saying:
“You’d have to ask them. They seemed├óΓé¼┬ª they were very, very sweet. They seemed very into it. They just were afraid of acting. They don’t consider themselves actresses. I said maybe you guys will just be in New York and we’ll do a phone call or something and they were like, ‘Let us think about it,’ and it just wasn’t for them, so├óΓé¼┬ª”
That seems nice enough… although, we’d still like to know the real reason they’re skipping out on the reunion!
Make sure to catch Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Laughlin, Scott Weinger, Blake & Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit, and John Stamos when Fuller House premieres Friday, February 26 on Netflix!
