This is the best and/or saddest reunion ever! The kids of ‘8 Simple Rules’ got together and posed for multiple adorable photos, while paying tribute to their father and their grandfather from the show, John Ritter and James Garner.
It’s been ten years since 8 Simple Rules aired its final episode, but it looks like the cast is still closer than ever! Kaley Cuoco got together with her TV brother and sister, Amy Davidson and Martin Spanjers over the weekend and they looked absolutely adorable and said they were “forever attached at the hip!” They also paid tribute to the two men from the show they’d lost with a very emotional pic.
“#8simplerules siblings all growed up forever attached at the hip with these two! @martinspanjers @amy_davidson #johnritter #grandpagarner we miss you every day!” Kaley captioned the first photo of the three siblings (seen above). And let me just say — they all look exactly the same!
Of course, they’re referencing John Ritter who played their father, Paul Hennessey on the show and died suddenly of a heart attack in 2003, and James Garner who played their grandfather Jim and passed last year at 86. Kaley then posted another photo with them, holding Grandpa frames, of pictures of them with him on the show.
8 Simple Rules ran on ABC for three seasons from 2002 to 2005, and then ran reruns on ABCFamily after the show went off the air. When John passed away, the family wrote in a new storyline to deal with the sudden death of their father and it was pretty much the saddest thing on TV. Both John and James will be greatly missed.
