It has recently come to light that
Stephanie Tanner Jodie Sweetin was a meth addict. Two years ago she was unemployed and bored and began by experimenting. Soon, she was using meth everyday. At some point a three-day bender ensued, as well as an intervention staged by her Full House castmates — including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, John Stamos and Bob Saget. Sweetin said she checked herself in to the Promises drug rehab facility for six weeks of intense treatment. She’s been clean and sober since March of last year and now wants to get back into acting.
“I want to make movies, TV series, wherever the career takes me,” she said. “I really hope this isn’t the last people hear of me. In fact, I would like to make this a footnote in my career, not the end.”
I would’ve loved to have been at that intervention. That’s what tv reunion shows should be like; the meth-addicted daughter, the anorexic twins. The befuddled yet slightly aroused father, trying to talk everyone down and see if anyone will get naked. Really, the only thing missing from Stephanie’s wayward story is a dip into low-budget pornography, something like Full House of Lesbians. Seems a shame to waste a custom-built porn name like Sweetin. But there’s still plenty of time.
