How rude Jodie Sweetin melted our hearts and made us laugh for eight years as cherub faced goody two shoes middle child Stephanie Tanner Her ups and downs seemed not so different from our own but than a decade after the popular television show ended the star publicly revealed her shocking recovery from methamphetamine addiction Even then she kept a painful secret one that could not be I saw this on the new release shelf at the library and couldn't resist Don't judge me Probably like most people who picked up this book I really wanted to hear the dirt about Jodie Sweetin's Full House days There were one or two chapters at the beginning that made me laugh with their references to certain episodes of the show and I always enjoyed when members of the cast made cameos in the book later on like John Stamos Jodie Sweetin and one of the Olsen twins passed out drunk in a bed at Stamos' bachelor pad how rude don't worry nothing happened But beyond the occasional full House references this book was a run of the mill addiction memoir Stephanie Tanner did a LOT OF DRUGS Wow It is disturbing to read And even though her struggle with addiction is uniue to her as a book it didn't feel that original or interesting
unSweetinedIfe and the vicious cycle of abuse and recovery that led to a relapse even as she wrote this book Finally becoming a mother gave her the determination and the courage to get sober With resilience charm and humor she writes candidly about taking each day at a time Hers is not a story of success or defeat but of facing your demons finding yourself and telling the whole truth unSweetined This was shockingI had heard that Jodie was a bit wild once Full House ended a show that me and my sister watched religiously but I had no idea how crazy her life turned out to be Stephanie Tanner was my favorite and still is my favorite character on full house or now FULLER HOUSE The second I heard about this book I wanted to read it and seeing Jodie on DWTS this season has made me curious about her life This girl and the choices she made was mouth dropping at times It's crazy what the spotlight does to kids and it's just plain sad and terrifying I could totally see why Jodie felt she needed something drugs alcohol sex etc after full house ended; it was the only world she had known Thank goodness for her saving grace her daughter Side note For those who have watched Netfilx's Fuller House I find it really interesting now that the writers wrote Stephanie's character as a partier and drinkerummm why would she want to portray Stephanie as that type of person???
