Romijn admitted there’s a “lot of things” she misses about ex-husband John Stamos during a recent appearance on “The Talk.”
“Going through a divorce is terrible, it’s awful,” Romijn explained to O’Connell on the show. “I was with him for 10 years. Divorce feels like a failure … and there were a lot of things that I had to let go of that were very sad.”

O’Connell noted that Romijn’s relationship with Stamos seemed “fun” to him.
“I have a lot of really fun memories,” she responded. “I have a lot of fond memories of him. A lot of things about him that I miss. But yeah, it’s tricky. It’s a very hard decision to come to when you decide to end a marriage. It was heartbreaking.”
Stamos and Romijn got engaged in 1997 and tied the knot the following year. The two were married until Stamos filed for divorce in 2004.

Romijn also recalled seeing Stamos for the first time since the two split while at a strip mall with her kids “just a few weeks ago.” After the “Full House” actor walked in front of her car, she pointed him out to her kids and explained that she used to date him.
The kids asked her how she knew it was Stamos.
“I said, ‘Girls, it’s because I was with him for 10 years. I would recognize that gait from a block away,'” Romijn recalled saying. “I recognize the way his body moves. I know that walk. I’m familiar with his body.”
The “Femme Fatale” actress began dating O’Connell shortly after the split and the two married in 2007. Romijn and O’Connell share two kids together.
