Stamos, 53, who met Rickles “15-17 years ago,” revealed that he introduced his longtime friend to his girlfriend Caitlin McHugh, whom he’s been “madly in love with” for over a year. “Don got to meet her and approve of her,” the Scream Queens actor recalled.
“He wanted so bad to get a Kennedy Center honor, we should work on that … we should try,” Stamos said before Kimmel joked: “He had a theory that somehow he offended the Kennedy family.”
Stamos remembered: “He said, ‘Before I die, I hope I get one of those honors.'”
