  • Jodie Sweetin to release memoir detailing drug, alcohol abuse


    “Full House” star Jodie Sweetin is gearing up to reveal details of her checkered past in a new bombshell tell-all memoir.

    Sweetin, 27, played sweet middle-child Stephanie Tanner on “Full House” from 1987 to 1995. But as Sweetin matured from child to teen star, she found herself slipping deeper into a dark world of drug and alcohol abuse.

    In an exclusive preview in Star magazine, Sweetin says that she spent years desperately trying to prove that she wasn’t the girl from “Full House” and that she could get more “trashed than everyone else.”

    At just fourteen years old, Sweetin found herself turning to the bottom of a wine glass in search of confidence. After getting drunk and passing out in the restroom at co-star Candace Cameron’s 1994 wedding, she says she woke up the next day and realized, “I was Jodie Sweetin and I was an alcoholic.”

    After realizing her issue, things only got worse for the young star, who later turned to pot, cocaine and crystal meth. At her lowest, she even drove drunk with her infant daughter Zoie in the car.

    Say it isn’t so, Stephanie!
