Netflix is giving “Full House” a Stamos-approved update

As San Francisco copes with a growing population, it looks like we’ll soon have a few more people elbowing us on Muni; “Full House” is returning to The City.

At least in fictional form. The sitcom, which was technically set in San Francisco but only left the Tanner family’s palatial Victorian during the credits sequence, is being rebooted next year on Netflix, the Los Gatos company confirmed Tuesday.

The Associated Press says the show will star Candace Cameron-Bure, who on the original show portrayed the eldest daughter of a widower with three kids, played by Bob Saget. In the reboot, titled “Fuller House,” she plays a recent widow with two kids and one on the way, leading one to wonder if deadly life-insurance schemes run in the family.

John Stamos, who played hunky Uncle Jesse during “Full House’s” 1987-1995 run, is producing and appearing in the reboot. He says producers are “trying to get everyone,” including Saget and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Confirmed to return are Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie Tanner and Andrea Barber as annoying former neighbor Kimmy Gibbler, proving that even in a sitcom, nobody gets to live here without a boatload of roommates.


Kylie Jenner has asked idiot teenagers to stop trying the “Kylie Jenner challenge” after several idiot teenagers sent themselves to the ER with bruised and bleeding lips.

It’s not a dance, or a fundraising stunt like the ice bucket challenge. Instead, teens are emulating the 17-year-old “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star’s pout by placing their lips over bottles and sucking the air out.

It produces the sexy lips of somebody who’s just been punched in the kisser, and it apparently compels teens to post grisly photos online with comments like “my lips bleeding and they hurt like hell” and “god help my lips,” according to TMZ.

On Tuesday, Jenner, who credits her plump pout to lots of lip liner, tweeted, “I’m not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look.”


Professional probationer Lindsay Lohan tried to flatter her Arabic-speaking fans Tuesday by tweeting, “You’re beautiful” in their language, but LiLo was quickly informed that she had actually posted, “You are a donkey.” … A judge has sided with Sherri Shepherd’s ex-husband by naming the actress the legal mother of an 8-month-child born via a surrogate.


Singer Peter Frampton is 65. … Director John Waters (“Hairspray”) is 69. … Singer Glen Campbell is 79. … Actress Charlotte Rae (“Facts of Life”) is 89.
