Danielle Fishel on Bob Saget coke run-in; not ‘dating’ Ben Savage


Danielle Fishel is opening up about a rather awkward encounter with “Full House” patriarch Bob Saget that happened while she and others from the “T.G.I.F.” crew — ABC’s ‘90s Friday-night lineup comedies — were en route to the Magic Kingdom.

“One time we were all on a private jet going to Disney World, and my mom, dad and brother were also with me,” the “Boy Meets World” actress said in a Q&A; with Maxim. “We had these four seats facing each other with curtains, so we had our own little private family area. Anyway, we were trying to take a nap, and all of a sudden Bob Saget walks down the aisle, rips open our curtain, and shouts, ‘Do you guys have any coke?!’ Then he looks my dad in the eye, laughs, and closes the curtain. My mom was like, ‘What was that all about?’ ”

Indeed, what was that all about? Perhaps he was revving up for his role as a cocaine addict in the 1998 stoner comedy “Half Baked.” And, in case you were wondering, “Full House” costar John Stamos lovingly described the wholesome daddy by day, raunchy comedian by night as a “hilarious pervert with a heart of gold.”

But we digress.

The Maxim cover girl rose to fame in the ‘90s sitcom playing Cory Matthews’ high school sweetheart-turned-wife Topanga Lawrence. Now, the 31-year-old is fulfilling the fantasy of ‘90s teenage boys everywhere by posing in a voluptuous photo shoot that would surely have Mr. Feeny sending her to detention.

Fishel is gearing up to launch Disney Channel’s spinoff “Girl Meets World,” where she and costar Ben Savage will reprise their roles as Cory and Topanga, who are now parents to a little girl named Riley, played by Rowan Blanchard. Savage posted a picture of the pilot script on Instagram on Thursday, captioning it with, “We’re on our way.”

When news of the sequel broke, Fishel said she, Savage and “Boy Meets World” costars Will Friedle and Ryder Strong had a mini-reunion dinner. (Squeal!!!)

Fishel, who recently graduated college and is engaged to Tim Belusko, also shared with Maxim that she and Savage only ever went on one date, despite reports that the small-screen lovebirds were dating.

“That rumor was entirely my fault because I once said, on ‘The Tyra Banks Show,’ that Ben and I went on a date, and that turned into ‘Danielle and Ben dated,’” she told the mag. “We went on one date, when I was about 15, and by the time the dinner was over we realized mutually that we were more like family than lovers.”


Sad story. Our rom-com hearts will never be mended.
