Stephanie Tanner is a meth addict

February 2nd, 2006 // 48 Comments

jodie_sweetin_thumb1.jpgIt 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.

    Bob Saget’s role a drug addicted sitcom star on the first season of “Huff” is must-see.

    Weren’t we all smoking crack to have watched full house to begin with. The olsen twins look like two bald fraggle rock puppets

  3. august

    don’t forget the born-again dj.

    Jodie Sweetin got the only boob job. Did you see her in the Full House biography? That chick is stacked now. Maybe I’ll bump into her at a recovery meeting. Hi I’m Jodie, I’m an addict……

    Who the hell is this bird?

  6. trophywife

    i’m with you bug…. she was on GMA earlier this week and she is gorgeous… i’d like to munch on it (is that what i say since i can’t “hit it”?)

  7. So THATS why the Olsen Twins look so scared and traumatised now. When a meth addict hits rock bottom they are crazy. I’m guessing Jody showed up at their door one night for a little Crazed Meth Addict lovin.

    Wait…wait…hold on – let me get this straight -

    The Olsen Twins staging an intervention? Where the hell is *their* intervention?

  9. ESQ

    No real surprise here, just another Dana Plato I am forseeing…

  10. PapaHotNuts

    Her “Full House” now consists of two pimps, a few bitches and hoes, a couple crackheads, her meth dealer, and adorable twin pit bulls raised for fighting. And John Stamos.

  11. I saw her on GMA, and holy crap she looks good now. I was at the hospital waiting to get surgery and I couldn’t keep my eyes off the screen. I went online when I got home to look up pics of her, but it seems none of them do the girl justice.


    Full House sucked and still does O_O

  12. HollyJ

    Someone PLEASE take down that horrendous photo with the 80s curly bangs and gigantic red bow. I’m feeling nauseous.

  13. Niki

    was dave coulier too cool to be at the intervention or something?

    “sorry Im booked. Skating with the stars and all . . . “

  14. hafaball

    Wow…that was absolutely amazing…thank you guy that writes these things…lol!!

  15. christenwentboom

    you know, i took dance with her and zachary ty bryan of home improvement fame. i must admit, she was not a pleasant looking girl at the time, which means neither was i, since many people often said i looked like her. i’ve seen her recently, and i must say, she turned into a looker. it’s safe to say that we don’t look alike anymore. dammit. :(

  16. do you think Dave Coulier said “CUT IT OUT!”??

  17. christenwentboom

    “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’m sure this will really put a hault to her hectic career. it’s really a pity since she’s been so busy doing……….nothing.

  18. You’re kidding right?

    Last I heard, she was the most normal out of all the kids that did that show.

    Candace Cameron-Bure is a Jesus Freak now.

    We all know what’s going on with the Olson Hobbits.

    And I think I saw the dog on the side of I-294, begging for some Kibbles & Bits.

    Jeez. A meth addict. That sucks.

    What really irritates me is that we are fed bullshit images of young, thin actresses and feel that we are freaks because we don’t look like that. How are we supposed to compete with these young women when clearly they have the advantage of having anorexia and a meth & heroin addictions. Maybe the rest of us just aren’t that lucky… Waah, waah, waah… I have an eating disorder, I’m addicted to meth, I lost my chihuahua…

  20. rivercmb

    poke “do you think Dave Coulier said “CUT. IT. OUT.”?” That made me wet myself a little.

    I’d rather be a meth addict than a born-again Christian though. It’s easier to get off meth and people actually encourage you to.

  21. sara1beth2

    Meth, “How rude.”

    Posted by trophywife “i’m with you bug…. she was on GMA earlier this week and she is gorgeous… i’d like to munch on it (is that what i say since i can’t “hit it”?)”

    LMAO…hey trophywife, I’m guessing “munch on it” is your clever way of saying you’re lovin’ the ladies, right? What I want to know is don’t you just “hit it” literally? Or did I just see Chasing Amy one too many times?

  23. Cosmopolitan

    “I want to make movies, TV series, wherever the career takes me,” she said.

    I think it’s time for a new career.

  24. DrDanny

    rivercmb: trust me, you /don’t/ wanna be a meth head. It’s way nastier than you think. I agree, x-tianity is bad, but speed is worse.

  25. LaydeeBug

    Ok, lets clear this up. I noticed she has big boobies. That’s as far as it goes. She still has Stef Tanner face and if I was into the ladies, which I ain’t (not yet at least), I would be banging on Angelina or maybe someone Jennifer Garner. Now she is my type or girl, if I went that way (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) Hahahahaha. I’m hungry.

  26. HelpingOutTheMorons

    If I had to hang out with Bob Saget on a semi-regular basis for years and years I would be a meth-head too.

  27. gossipmonger

    A pic of her from a couple of years ago…

  28. susie-q

    Per IMDB she got an academic scholarship to college, graduated college with a liberal arts degree, wants to tutor on movie/tv sets, got married in 2002 and Candace Cameron was her maitron of honor and Candace’s daughter was flower girl.

    Wow … so she’s married, got a scholarship and a degree … not too shabby.

    Too bad about the meth and the bad publicity. What do they say … bad publicity is better than no publicity?

  29. Edie

    Oh nonononononooooooo….

    You totally missed the entire picture of what that intervention looked like.

    Two anorexic self-absorbed troll girls, a washed up pretty-boy who just got dumped by his former-model wife for a younger man, and one of the foulest mouths in comedy.


  30. HughJorganthethird

    Just another Hollywood loser who coudn’t handle her drugs.

    And whats with the Meth? Shit girl your rich, you should be vacationing in Bogata if you know what I mean.

    Where in the fuck is Chris Farley when u need him?

  31. My God, that’s so perfect that I could just hug myself.

    My cousins used to force me to watch Full House, and I’d squirm and protest. It’s too bad I couldn’t go back in time and tell myself ‘Meth. She’ll be hooked on meth.’

  32. Seamus Begonia Smell

    oh. my. god. this was the best thing i’ve read today.

  33. elvindeath

    This totally sucks. I missed my chance to talk a Full House star into providing “oral services” for a $5 hit. Damn. At least the Meth probably kept her looking tanned, toned and well rested.

  34. JoeStalin

    Anyone have screen caps or a video of the interview?

    I’ll support her habbit for a chance at the rack.

  35. rivercmb

    Check out her fan site, yes, she actually has a fan site. It has a link to the video, “Fallen Star: Full House Actress and Meth” Words we’ve all been waiting to hear.

    Check out the media section as well, look for “Full House Fan Fiction”. Two jackasses have been writing Full House episodes.

  36. eyespy27

    first of all candace camerons husband is hot. and that sucks cause she looks all down syndrome and probably only rides it on top.

    and yes, that intervention should have been filmed by e! the thought of the glazed eyed olsen twins trying to save another full houser is enough to make me puke in my mouth. just a little.

  37. DiamondStudded

    I’m thinking this is just a desperate cry for attention. Everyone loves a child star -gone druggie- come back story.

  38. keepitrealchick

    how sad, she was my favorite character on the show! maybe she and jaimee foxxworth can reunite and help eachother through therapy?

  39. liljbabe85

    I like Jodie’s comment about “wherever the career takes me.” It has very Pocahontas-y feel to it; actually it sounds like it might have stolen from that movie. There’s just two problems:1) Pocahontas was talking about wind, you idiot! 2)What career?

  40. Skippy

    The Child Star Syndrome strikes again…

  41. MP$40

    This is the new way to jumpstart your career in Hollywood. It’s classic and it totally works. Just like ‘DiamondStudded’ said:

    “I’m thinking this is just a desperate cry for attention. Everyone loves a child star -gone druggie- come back story.”

    I couldn’t agree more. Does she really look like a former meth addict?

  42. mikey d

    Looked up her interview on Good Morning America or whatever it was…
    She looks great. Absolutely beautiful. She has a Scarlet Johannsen quality about her. I really hope someone gives her a chance because I would love to see her on screen again

  43. sexydarin

    Why are celebrities always staging “interventions”. And why do they always rely on advice from other celebrities. One dui conviction and there had to be an “intervention” by their previous or current castmates. I mean people in real life are drunk and stoned most of their young teenage life and we don’t stage “interventions” Goddammit!

  44. christee

    i was bored once….so i kicked a puppy.
    problem solved.

  45. thingsandstuff

    My friends roommate used to sell extacy to her on a weekly basis in college. Just sayin’.
