Full House's Sweetin -- Little Stephanie! -- discusses meth addiction

Jodie Sweetin talks about her meth addictionAnd we thought we'd be hearing about this from one of the Olsen twins first...

Jodie Sweetin, who played middle child Stephanie on Full House, discussed her addiction to methamphetamines on Good Morning America yesteday morning. Apparently, after the show ended in 1995, she wanted to go back to being a normal kid, but found the "normal life" a little boring. She married a police officer at 20, and by 22 had a raging meth habit that got so bad she needed an intervention from John Stamos, Bob Saget, and yes, the aforementioned Olsens to straighten her out (I wonder if they then turned the tables and had an intervention for Mary-Kate about her eating disorder).

She's sober now, in the process of divorcing her husband, and wants to pick her acting career up again at the ripe old age of 24. We wish her luck.

Can we take bets on the next child star to either get arrested or go to rehab? I'll take Jonathan Lipnicki if no one else wants him.

i always wondered why stars turn to drugs. can't they be satisfied with having enough in the bank that they can live without having to worry about how they are gonna feed their kids and how to pay the electric bill before it gets turned off? I drive a 97 cavalier I bought for $300 from a guy who wrecked it, but it still drives. she's got enough in her trust funds and bank to drive anything she wants. and what does she do? turn to drugs because "she's missing something". BOO-F**KING-HOO. tell ya what. give me your money and i'll kill you quickly. not slowly while your teeth rot out. when stars come out that they are addicted. they might as well keep on doing them and die as far as i'm concerned.

I've watched Full House since i can remember. I looked up to Sweetin, she was my favorite. I am sorry that she went down that road. Glad she is on the right track. The truth is tho, what has Full House done to these sweet girls?!

I'd say the kid who plays Dewey on Malcolm in the Middle. He's not cute anymore and his show is coming to an end. Plenty of time to get in trouble.
