Robalini's Note: Mystery solved. Who would've guessed that "You Oughta Know" was about the dude in Full House who isn't John Stamos or Bob Saget?
Dave Coulier on Ex Alanis: "We're Good"
Thursday August 14, 2008
Comedian Dave Coulier says people oughta know there's no bad blood between him and ex Alanis Morrisette.
Can you believe these stars dated?
Coulier — best known as goofy Uncle Joey on ABC's Full House — is the inspiration behind Morrisette's 1995 angst-ridden anthem "You Oughta Know."
Lyrics include: "And I'm here to remind you / Of the mess you left when you went away / It's not fair to deny me / Of the cross I bear that you gave to me."
He says he was driving when he first heard the tune.
"I said, 'Wow, this girl is angry.' And then I said, 'Oh man, I think it's Alanis,'" Coulier tells the Calgary Herald. "I listened to the song over and over again, and I said, 'I think I have really hurt this person.'"
Inundated with press calls, he says he tried to get a hold of her — and eventually got through.
"I said, 'Hi. Uh, what do you want me to say?'" he recalls. "And she said, 'You can say whatever you want.'"
Eventually, he says, "we saw each other and hung out for an entire day. And it was beautiful. It was one of those things where it was kind of like, 'We're good.'"
Morissette and her on-and-off fiance Ryan Reynolds officially split in 2007.
