Dave Coulier of ‘Full House’ engaged to Melissa Bring
Dave Coulier of “Full House” is engaged to longtime girlfriend Melissa Bring.
What a relief: Uncle Joey isn’t staying single forever!
“Melissa has been my best friend since I met her nine years ago,” the 54-year-old told Us. “I feel like the luckiest man on the planet. I get to marry my best friend, and she doesn’t mind that I have a really bad gas problem.”
“We simply thought we would just make it a lifetime. I can’t wait,” he said to People.
Coulier has stayed close with several of the stars from “Full House,” an ABC sitcom that ran from 1987 to 1995. So we wouldn’t be surprised if pals John Stamos, Bob Saget, Lori Loughlin and Candace Cameron Bure popped in for the wedding. (Less likely to show are Ranger Joe and Mr. Woodchuck, however.)
The comedian, who recently appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s “Where Are They Now?” has also shed light on the urban legend that the Grammy-winning song “You Oughta Know” by his ex, Alanis Morissette, was written about him.
“First of all, the guy in that song is a real ... , so I don’t want to be that guy. Secondly, I asked Alanis, ‘I’m getting calls by the media and they want to know who this guy is.’ And she said, ‘Well, you know it could be a bunch of people. But you can say whatever you want,’” he said in a BuzzFeed interview. “So one time, I was doing a red carpet somewhere, and [the media] just wore me down and everybody wanted to know so I said, ‘Yeah, all right, I’m the guy. There I said it.’ So then it became a snowball effect of, OH! So you are the guy!’”
“It’s just become this silly urban legend that I just have to laugh at,” the comedian said.
