Vanna White mourns the death of her friend Bob Saget in a week that saw the who’s who of Hollywood and beyond pay their sincere tributes to the late “Full House” star who died Sunday in Orlando, Florida , at the age of 65.
“Bob Saget and I were neighbors before we were successful. I will always remember the support and confidence we gave each other as we fought to start our careers and I was so happy our friendship ended when I played in ‘Full House’, “White, 64, told Fox News Digital in a candid statement Tuesday.
“I will miss the laughs,” added the cornerstone of the “Wheel of Fortune”.
Saget was pronounced dead in his hotel room after his body was discovered unconscious on Sunday – just hours after the intellectual comedian performed two hours on stage and raved his time in front of fans who had come to see him do a concert.
