-- A neighbor of the San Francisco home made famous in “Full House” and now “Fuller House” says it has become such a fan attraction she has to yell, “Crazy lady backing out,” when she leaves her driveway.
“What I do is I usually open the garage door and they ignore it and then I go out and say, ‘Watch out. Crazy lady backing out,’ and they get out of the way,” Mary Risley said today on “Good Morning America.” “So far I haven’t hit anybody.”
Risley, 74, said fans seem clueless that the Victorian home was just an exterior shot for “Full House” and not the actual set for the hit TV sitcom.
The home, seen while the show’s “Everywhere You Look” theme song played, has a new paint color – deep purple – and no longer has a red front door, according to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported on the uptick in visits to the home.
The Journal reported the home was last purchased in 2006 for $1.85 million.
“Full House” was a late '80s, early '90s TV hit that saw its popularity skyrocket again with the launch of Netflx’s “Fuller House” earlier this year.
“Last week alone I met people from New Zealand, Vienna and Ottawa. They come from all over the world,” said Risley, who estimates as many as 100 people can clog the narrow street on a weekend.
Risley said while she deals with “Full House” fans on a daily basis, she herself is not one.
“I tried to watch it once recently on TNT and I just can’t,” she said. “I think I’m too old.”
