John Stamos Remembers ‘Nightmare’ Of Finding Girlfriend In Bed With Tony Danza


John Stamos became famous following his iconic portrayal of the suave and charming Uncle Jesse Katsopolis in Full House. Over the years, the actor has established himself as a versatile actor, gracing various television shows and appearing in several other TV series such as ER, Necessary Roughness, and Scream Queens.

Stamos recently published his memoir, If You Would Have Told Me, which delves into his life beyond the glitz and glamour of the entertainment industry, sharing intimate details about a heart-wrenching incident involving one of his ex-girlfriends, Teri Copley, and a fellow actor.

The actor detailed that he discovered Copley’s infidelity when, on a specific occasion, he repeatedly tried to reach her by phone but received no response. “I call her from the road, but the girl who breathlessly picked up the phone after one ring is now giving me busy signals and dial tones,” Stamos wrote. “When I get home, I call her throughout the day and into the evening. No response. Strange. We’ve gone from talking on the phone every few hours to silence.”

This lack of communication prompted him to take action and visit her at her residence. During this unannounced visit, he learned that his girlfriend was involved in a romantic relationship with the actor Tony Danza.

“A black 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster, vintage convertible. Strange. I shuffle to the car with my stomach sinking and take a quick look inside, there’s a hairbrush, keys, boxing gloves, and a half-unrolled poster of my girlfriend, naked, barely covered by a white sheet. Half of her butt is showing. I’ve never seen this poster before,” he detailed. “The blinds are closed, but the door is slightly open, I take a peek inside and see four feet protruding from the shabby-chic, floral-print duvet that once kept me warm. My Tiny Dancer is in bed with Mr. Porsche Speedster. They are sleeping. I can’t tell who he is, but I recognize Teri’s a– barely covered by the sheets. It looks like her new poster.”

He says catching his girlfriend with Tony Danza was his worst experience

Stamos further narrated how he felt helpless after he saw his girlfriend and Danza together in bed. “I try to hold back tears, time slows until I’m frozen. I can’t breathe. A few tears roll down my face, and it pisses me off. They snap me out of my daze, and I feel angry and confused. I could explode,” Stamos shared. “I stare at the two-dimensional, half-dressed woman that I thought I knew. She’s signed the poster, with little hearts, ‘My Dear Tony, I’ll love you forever. XO, Teri, ‘Tony? Who the hell is Tony?”

The 60-year-old revealed that the realization of the man lying next to his girlfriend didn’t dawn on him until he was driving back home, with the soothing sounds of an Elton John song filling the airwaves. During this tranquil moment, he suddenly made the startling connection that the “Tony” in question was, in fact, the renowned actor Tony Danza.
