Rebecca Romijn tells husband Jerry O’Connell that she still misses ex John Stamos

He revealed back in October that his wife’s ex-husband had moved into their Calabasas, California, neighborhood.

And Jerry O’Connell, 48, delved into wife Rebecca Romijn’s complicated feelings about her former husband John Stamos when she dropped by the set of The Talk on Thursday.

The 49-year-old actress and model admitted that she still misses the 58-year-old Full House star, while revealing that she finally saw him in person for the first time since their 2005 divorce.

Awkward! Rebecca Romijn, 49, revealed to her husband Jerry O’Connell, 48, that she still misses her ex-husband John Stamos, 58, whom she has ‘fond memories’ of

Halfway through their conversation, Jerry got a sheepish grin on his face as he said, ‘This is not your… first tango with marriage.’

He shared that he first met the X-Men star while she was in the process of divorcing John.

‘You were bummed about it. I saw flashes of depression,’ he said. ‘I couldn’t understand it really. It must be difficult going through a divorce.’

She agreed that the process was ‘awful’ and ‘terrible,’ while noting that she and the ER actor had been a couple for around 10 years.

The two struck up their relationship in 1994 after getting in touch at a Victoria’s Secret fashion show where she was walking the runway.

The two got engaged in 1997 and married the following year, but they announced their separation in April 2004 and finalized the separation just under a year later.

She and Jerry began dating the same year as her separation, before tying the knot in 2007. They welcomed their 13-year-old twin daughters Charlie and Dolly in 2008. 

‘Divorce feels like a failure. It feels like a failure, and there were a lot of things that I had to let go of that were very sad,’ she said of the difficult time.

Jerry sounded almost jealous later in the segment when he noted the affection Rebecca seems to have when her ex-husband is brought up. 

‘When I’m with you personally, and I hear you talk about your ex-husband… it sounds like it was fun. You always have really fun memories,’ he said.

His wife admitted that she had ‘fond memories’ of that period, and there were ‘a lot of things about him that I miss.’

‘It’s tricky. It’s a very hard decision to come to when you decide to end a marriage. It was heartbreaking,’ she continued.

The discussion about her ex-husband came not too long after Rebecca saw him for the first time in 17 years, though he didn’t appear to have noticed.

‘I finally saw him. I saw him just a few weeks ago — first time since we split up,’ she gushed. ‘I had the girls in the car. We were sitting in after-school traffic at a strip mall and I saw him. There he was walking right in front of the car. Cap pulled down. Sunglasses on. I went, “There he is girls!”‘

Considering that he was barely visible under the outfit, her daughters could barely believe that it was him.

‘I said, “Girls, because I was with him for 10 years. I would recognize that gait from a block away. I recognize the way his body moves. I know that walk. I’m familiar with his body.”‘

‘Okay, this is getting awkward now,’ Jerry joked to lighten the mood.

He was curious why his wife didn’t say hello to her ex after not having seen him for more than a decade.

‘I didn’t think my hair looked good,’ she replied sheepishly, which got a laugh out of him. 

She added that she didn’t know what she would have said to John, though one thing was clear: ‘I certainly wouldn’t want you there! That would be his worst nightmare.’

Jerry laughed again but insisted they were all ‘friends,’ despite apparently not being in contact for 17 years.
