Even though Alanis Morissette‘s Grammy award-winning breakup anthem “You Oughta Know” is nearly 20 years old, it’s still hard to believe the song was most likely written about “Full House’s” Uncle Joey, a.k.a., Dave Coulier.
While there, host Andy Cohen (doing his best Morissette impression) grilled the “Full House” stars about just how spot-on Morissette’s lyrics were to the real-life relationship with Coulier.
Lyric: “An Older Version Of Me”
Morissette sings on the track that Coulier moved on from their relationship with an older woman, so is it true? Coulier, at first dodged the question, but then jokingly replied, “Yes, she was 87 years old.”
Lyric: “Is She Perverted Like Me?”
Saget took the heat off Coulier for this one, confirming that “she was not.”
Lyric: “Would She Go Down On You In A Theater?”
It’s probably the most memorable line from the song, and something that many of us have been wondering for a long time. “You did that popcorn cup trick one time and it comes back to haunt you for the rest of your life,” Coulier responded. We’re going to take that as a yes.
Lyric: “I Hate To Bug You In The Middle Of Dinner”
Turns out this is 100 percent true. In fact, Saget was at Coulier’s house and was an eyewitness when the ’90s pop superstar allegedly called on the phone.
“I was at his house, and he said, ‘Alanis just hung up on me and said, ‘Sorry to call you during dinner,’ ” Saget recalled. “I was at his house when she said that.”
Stamos continued, “When I heard that song, she was so angry but she’s singing about the guy that does [voice impersonations of] Bullwinkle and Popeye — it didn’t mix.”
Lyric: “It Was A Slap In The Face How Quickly I Was Replaced”
According to Morissette’s song, Uncle Joey was quick to move on from their relationship. And again, after viewing the episode of “WWHL,” her version of things seems to add up.
“She was quickly replaced,” Saget confirmed, before commenting on how talented Morrissette is: “Another version of her.”
