Stephanie Tanner Tells All by noyoufalled

Who ever thought that little Stephanie Tanner would grow up to be a meth addict? Sure, there’s no doubt that there was some severe middle-child syndrome happening, especially when those little Olsen twins got to speaking age and stole the spotlight, but drugs? Oh Stephanie…

Well now Stephanie, or more accurately Jodie Sweetin, the actress who portrayed her, is writing a tell all book about her struggles with drug addiction. All grown up and ready to share her story, Sweetin’s memoir is reportedly set to chronicle her 4 year battle with alcohol and crystal meth addiction. Sweetin has signed with publishers Simon & Schuster in a reported six-figure deal.

While the memoir is being portrayed solely as the story of Sweetin’s double-life as a child star/addict, you have to wonder what other juicy details are in that book that helped it along to a six-figure deal. I’m not trying to downplay the importance of recording a struggle with addiction that may help others and shed some light on the unfortunate turn of events, but Sweetin hasn’t exactly been in the spotlight since Full House went off the air in the mid-nineties.

Maybe Sweetin’s book will offer a little behind the scenes gossip from one of the early nineties biggest TV hits? Perhaps Sweetin’s addictions were fueled by those around her? Like Dave “Uncle Joey” Coulier, who dated an underage Alanis Morissette while starring on the show. Just try and tell me that Mr. Duplicity didn’t have at least a little to do with Sweetin’s turn to the bottle. Or maybe it was the realization that she would never begin to reach the superstar level that her younger co-stars would? It has to be a little disheartening to realize that had you been just a few years younger and just a little blonder you may today be a billionaire.

Just whatever it was that sparked Sweetin’s turn from a little girl running around shouting “How rude!” to a hardcore drug addict, her memoir is sure to be an interesting read.
