John Stamos Checks Himself Into Rehab For Substance Abuse
Just as fans were getting pumped up for the Full House reunion, Uncle Jesse, played by hottie, John Stamos, was arrested for DUI. He was hospitalized for an undisclosed medical condition with many wondering what was up. He sent out a Tweet to his fans saying, “Thanks to everyone for their love & support. I’m home & well,” though it appears he was not well.
People reported that John Stamos checked himself into a residential treatment program for substance abuse. It was not specified what substance or substances the actor is being treated.
It had just been reported by Variety that Stamos pulled out as co-host of the Emmy awards nominations next Thursday. Originally Stamos’ rep claimed there was a scheduling conflict though now it seems that the star was either in rehab or preparing for his stint.
He was charged with DUI last month after police say he was driving erratically. Sources claimed he was having trouble dealing with the loss of his mother who passed away last September. There were denials about alcohol issues though it appears now that the actor was struggling with something.
It was recently announced that Stamos would return in Fuller House, a reboot of the sitcom that made the Olsen twins famous though the Olsen twins bowed out despite assurances from Stamos that everyone would be joining the reunion. After they made it clear they would not be joining Uncle Jesse and the rest of the Tanner family, Stamos posted on Facebook to wish them well and explain that the reunion was not a play for money but something they were doing to have some fun, something he described as “sad that a few don’t share the rest of the cast’s opinion-I can only with them the best-JS.”
The reboot will be 13 episodes streamed on Netflix. The focus will be on Candace Cameron Bure’s character DJ, a widowed veterinarian. Her friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber) and younger sister (Jodie Sweetin) move in to help her take care of her two kids and soon to be born baby, a take on Full House when Uncle Jesse and Joey (Dave Coulier) moved in to help Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) take care of his three girls after the death of his wife.
Fuller House streams on Netflix in 2016 though there is no word how long Stamos will be in rehab or how it will affect the series. He is reportedly only a guest star which means he will have plenty of time to get healthy.
