The Disturbing Reason Bob Saget’s Wife Kelly Rizzo Says Matthew Perry’s Death ‘Hit Home’ For Her

Kelly Rizzo sadly knows all too well what the family of the late Matthew Perry is experiencing.

When the news of his tragic death broke, the Eat Travel Rock host shared with her followers on TikTok that it “really hit home for” her and felt like “deja vu.” Why? Because she remembered how she learned of her husband Bob Saget’s death in January 2022 — only minutes before the tragedy made headlines.

In fact, Kelly claimed the press knew about his passing before she did! The 44-year-old recalled:

“When I saw the news hit on TMZ about Mathew Perry yesterday, it really brought me back to a very specific place of when the news came out about Bob when he passed almost two years ago now. Just to let you guys know, I found out that my husband passed 15 minutes before it hit TMZ. The media had already known even before I knew.”

That is horrific!!! After what she experienced when Bob died, she guessed that Matthew’s family most likely had no idea he died yet when TMZ revealed on Saturday that the 54-year-old actor was found dead in a hot tub. Kelly explained:

“It just made me think yesterday when the news broke on TMZ about Matthew Perry, that it was very possible and likely that many of his family and even friends, close friends, didn’t even know yet, and that is just really, really messed up.”

It’s heartbreaking. We cannot imagine how the Friends star’s family must have felt seeing the news break before anyone informed them of the situation — if this is what happened as Kelly assumes. Watch her entire video (below):
