"It's pretty crazy when your kids come out for breakfast and go, 'Hey, Mom, your ex has a book out and called you the devil. What are your thoughts?'"
During an appearance on Andy Cohen's SirusXM radio show on Tuesday, O'Connell said he has not read Stamos' memoir, If You Would Have Told Me, which recounts details from the Full House alum's split from Romijn, to whom he was married between 1998 and 2005. He also said that he and Romijn don't have "any interest" in diving into the memoir.
“There was an interest in my household," O'Connell conceded. "But it’s so funny, after hearing his interview beginning to end on [The Howard Stern Show], any interest of reading the book went away."
"You've heard it all," Cohen responded.
"Yeah," O'Connell said. "I think those are the only parts we were interested in our house, and we got to them and they were talked about, I don’t really need to hear about the casting process of famous sitcoms. That’s not something that really interests us.”
The Talk cohost noted that it did get "awkward" with his twin daughters with Romjin. "My children are 14 and they see what we see now," O'Connell said. "There's no hiding, there's no more keeping things from them. It's pretty crazy when your kids come out for breakfast and go, 'Hey mom, your ex has a book out and called you the devil. What are your thoughts?'"
In Stamos' interview with Stern in question, the actor spoke about how he felt "emasculated" during his marriage to Romijn and struggled with her rising fame. "I think that she outgrew me," he said, acknowledging that he should've tried harder to save the marriage. "I didn't work as hard as I should at anything."
In a conversation with PEOPLE last month, Stamos said the divorce "shattered" him. "In my mind back then, she was the devil, and I just hated her," he said. "I couldn't believe how much I hated her, and it ruined my life." He eventually recognized that he played "some part" in the split. "You start thinking, 'She wasn't the devil. Maybe I was as much to blame as her.'"
