Kelly Rizzo has said she was “heartbroken once again” watching the 2022 Emmys pay tribute to her late husband, comedian Bob Saget.
That Full house Star died in January of this year from accidental head trauma. He was 65.
During Monday night’s awards ceremony (September 12), the evening honored Saget, Betty White and Sidney Poitier, among others, in its In Memoriam section – which honors notable TV personalities who have died since last year’s ceremony.
In response to the touching moment, Rizzo shared the Emmys clip on her Instagram story, writing, “I’ve been a wreck all day waiting for this. My heart broke again.
“But I know he would be proud of that recognition. It’s still so freaking weird and surreal.”
The late comedian’s wife previously spoke candidly about her grieving process on Instagram.
Six months after Saget’s death, Rizzo shared that she was learning “how to brave the world” without “my best friend, my traveling companion, my loving husband.”

Although the Australian actress and singer is best known for her starring role as Sandy in Fat, Although she was primarily a film actress, she still appeared in a number of television series, including the year-long 2008 show Sordid Lives: The Series.
As for the confusion about Saturday night live Alum Macdonald, he died in 2021 and was honored during last year’s ceremony. That year he received three posthumous nominations for his Netflix special Nothing special, That was partly why fans were shocked not to see him in the in-memorial segment — unaware that he was being celebrated last year.
