Bob Saget's Widow Reveals Why She Sold Their Home
Comedian Bob Saget’s widow, Kelly Rizzo, has made steps to move forward.
On Wednesday, Rizzo, 43, appeared on the “Tamron Hall Show” and spoke about why she sold the home she shared with Saget. She jokingly said that her new home is “just shy of a Bob museum” because “he’s still everywhere” in pictures and videos.
“I’ve learned recently about grief, something about the home that you shared sometimes can be very triggering … even if you had wonderful memories there, even if it was such a positive experience — which it was, I mean he loved our house — and it was such a positive memory, but there’s something about when somebody passes, the home itself can be a situation. So that’s why it was nice to get a fresh start,” she explained.
She added, “I didn’t really realize that until recently.”
In June, their upscale Los Angeles home was first listed at $7.765 million, just six months after Saget’s unexpected death, according to People. It then sold for about $5.4 million 14 months after his death.
Saget was found dead in his hotel room on Jan. 9, 2022, in Orlando, Florida.
According to the Orange County Medical Examiner’s Office, he sustained multiple fractures and most likely hit the “posterior aspect of his head” during a fall.
On the first anniversary of his death, Rizzo paid tribute to Saget and said that he changed her life “just by being the person who he was.”
“Complicated, brilliant, compassionate, hilarious, neurotic, opinionated, loving, adorable, complex, determined, loyal, and sweet. He taught me so much about how to be a better person, how to love ourselves and others more completely,” she shared. “He taught me that life can be very hard and that death is a part of it all and we just have to tell everyone we love how much we love them because we never know how long we have.”
