The Word: Stephanie Tanner (a.k.a. Jodi Sweetin) is not back in rehab

Stephanie-tanner-full-house-10831817-400-377

How rude! That’s probably what Jodi Sweetin (a.k.a. Stephanie Tanner) is saying to all the nosy journos going around writing that she’s in rehab again. Because former child stars try to use their characters’ key catchphrases as often as possible — it helps people to remember that they were once pretty famous and that the mess they’ve since made of their adult lives is whatever.

Jokes aside, the story of Sweetin’s life post-”Full House” actually is a sad one. While the Olsen twins went on to rule the world from behind hundreds of layers of draped clothing and giant Starbucks cups, and Candace Cameron went on to find God, Sweetin (formerly the most adorable cast member of “Full House” and that includes Uncle Jesse) went on to become a meth addict and a three-time divorcée. But she cleaned up her act, admirably, and seemed to be on the right track, working as a counselor at a rehab facility.

Which is why it really is pretty rude that she’s now battling rumors (she’s claiming they are 100 percent unfounded) that she, herself, is back on meth and back in rehab. Give the girl a break, you guys — the only cast member who fared worse after “Full House” called it quits is Uncle Joey. That guy was the worst.
