Full House Star Jodie Sweetin in Rehab
Us Weekly and People like to stay away from Whitney Houston-style stories, but thankfully for PerezHilton.com, The Globe and The National Enquirer are all over the drug ****!
In this week's issue: it is revealed that former Full House cutie Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) is a recovering crystal meth addict, a serious issue plaguing America (not JUST the gay community).
Thankfully, Sweetin is out of rehab now and reportedly clean. However, crystal nearly destroyed her life, ruining her marriage and career.
With the help of some of her Full House castmates, Jodie had the courage to do what's right and get help. Life is simple, if you are in trouble, you need to get help. That's the simple life!
Sweetin is currently picking up the pieces of her life, and Candace Cameron is really playing the role of big sister, helping her every step of the way.
And, her former co-star John Stamos tells PerezHilton.com through his rep, "I love and support Jodie and I’m here for her in any way that she needs me."
Good luck Jodie!

I loved her on the show before she went through puberty. Does anyone know any other roles she took on later in life before this incident?

So perezhilton.com isn`t allowed as a source?

Think of the Website what you like but it appears to me that the guy goes to the same Parties as "the Hollywood Posse" and seems to know quite a few Publicists!

This is very shocking news. If this is true, hopefully she doesn't relapse.

'Full House' Sweetheart Talks About Meth Addiction
Child Star Jodie Sweetin Tried Meth Because She Was 'Bored'



Jodie Sweetin played Stephanie Tanner on "Full House." She now is a recovering meth addict. (ABC NEWS)



Feb. 1, 2006 As Stephanie Tanner on the 1990s hit sitcom "Full House," child actress Jodie Sweetin portrayed a young, innocent girl who lived in a happy, healthy supportive home.

"Growing up when I was on the series, I never really watched, even from this day, it's surreal to watch myself on television," said Sweetin. "Growing up in the business you have to grow up very fast you do have a different type of childhood, that has its benefits and it has its drawbacks."

When the show ended in 1995, she said she wanted to be a normal kid. She went to high school and college and by age 20 was married to a Los Angeles police officer TV older sister Candice Cameron was in the wedding party.

But two years ago, she found herself dangerously addicted to one of the most debilitating drugs, methamphetamine. She said she was unemployed and bored and began simply by experimenting. Soon, she was using meth everyday.

The tabloid press reported a three-day bender as well as an intervention staged by her "Full House" castmates including the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, John Stamos and Bob Saget.

Sweetin, 24, never went as far as to blame her life as a child star for her addiction, but said that it was difficult to discover who she truly was after the show ended.

"There is a certain sense of loss when a series ends," she said. "It is kind of hard to figure out who you are when you've lost your job at age 13, when that was basically how you identified yourself."

Sweetin said she checked herself in to the Promises drug rehab facility where she went underwent six weeks of intense treatment. She realized that she "was living a total double life," she said. "I was married to a police officer we are going through a divorce right now he had no idea."

Sweetin has 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."

She sounds like an intelligent person. Trying meth was of course stupid, but she seems to be handling things well. Good for her.
