Jodie Sweetin wants to be on “Dancing With The Stars”

Full House’s middle child Jodie Sweetin scored the cover of People Magazine this week with the story of her meth addiction and subsequent journey to sobriety and motherhood. She is a first-time mom to a seven week old baby daughter, Zoie, and has been married to her second husband, a “film transportation coordinator,” for 10 months. 26 year-old Sweetin’s story has helped many people who are addicted to drugs, according to her husband, who told People that “we get e-mails that say ‘Thank you so much. You saved my life.'”

Sweetin’s story is one of triumph over addiction, and shows that it can touch people from all walks of life. She says she started doing meth because of her friends, and that “It wasn’t so much the allure of it, but the people I was hanging out with. They didn’t look like the people in commercials with no teeth. They looked normal and had what I thought were normal lives. It didn’t seem scary.”

Sweetin claims her husband, a police officer, didn’t know what was going on until she ended up in the hospital 6 months after she first started doing meth. She was able to clean up with the help of her family, who she confessed to after her hospitalization. She had six weeks of inpatient treatment and six months of living with sober people from rehab, during which she broke it off with her husband. People doesn’t specify where she met her second husband or if he’s also in recovery.

Baby Zoie is a joy for Sweetin and her husband. She calls her “amazing” and says “Sometimes I just look at her and go, ‘You’re so perfect.'”

As for her future ambitions, the former child star says she’s “begging to be on Dancing with the Stars,” and that “I’ve danced my whole life.”

Sweetin struck quite a few poses on the red carpet for the TV Land Awards in Santa Monica on Sunday. She wore an unflattering lime green embroidered dress with a see-through long paneled skirt and bronze heels. She’s definitely a candidate for Dancing With the Stars, but she should ask a friend with taste to come along with her before she buys another outfit for an event.

    I don’t get why so many female “celebrities” have to prove themselves after they’ve given birth. I’m not a mom, so perhaps there’s something I don’t understand. Yeah, maybe she means she’d like to do it sometime in the future, but what if she means right now? Doesn’t her baby come first? It’s not like she doesn’t love her child if she wants to be on DWTS, but that’s so much training and time away! Or am I just being old-fashioned? ❓

  2. Jody says:

    That dress, and most of her poses…no good. You’re not 13 anymore, learn how to stand for a photo.

    The one with her hand on her head is a classic.

  3. WTF?!?! says:

    Nobody wants to see her on DWTS. Her meth addiction made her momentary “news”. She was a terrible actress as a child, and judging from her red carpet poses, she wouldn’t make it halfway through the first week before the judges and public showed her the door.
    It’s Dancing With the STARS, not Dancing With the Untalented Supporting Cast of Yesteryear.

    She needs to move to small-town America and relinquish her delusions of Hollywood.

    PS Those Spanx are NOT doing the job, Jodie. Nice breast implants scar under the armpit, btw. Who did your surgery, Jeffery Dahmer?

    Dancing with the Stars is the last stop before utter obscurity, so I say let her have her extra five minutes in the sun.

    @ WTF: You seem to know an awful lot about someone you can’t stand to see in the public eye- which is pretty damn strange if you ask me. I think you’re a closet fan and don’t want your cool internet friends to catch on.

    Assuming you had any.

    Which I doubt.

    I’ve listened to George Carlin, I’ve laughed at George Carlin- you sir, are no George Carlin. 😆

    “It’s Dancing With the STARS, not Dancing With the Untalented Supporting Cast of Yesteryear.”

    HAHA, I’m pretty sure AC Slater qualifies as ‘yesteryear’ status.

  6. Bodhi says:

    Why not give her a shot? Shana Molker (or whatever) was on & she is beyond a nobody

    Jody Sweetin is a thief! Give that dress back to Tonya Harding RIGHT NOW!

  8. Mimi says:

    something about her is off, it may be the taky dress, the fact that she and her “husband” were married all of 15 mins before the hocked their sob story to people mag, or that she is doing an aweful job of sucking in her gut- but to me.. This girl has trainwreck written all over her. I feel embarrassed for her when I look at these photos. These photos look like they belong on 14 year old girls myspace page with the caption ” this is from 8th grade graduation ceremony. don’t you wish you girl friend was hot like me. Hahaha.”

  9. CinPin says:

    Wow–why is everyone being so harsh???
    I’ll agree that that dress is not the most flattering, but why are people attacking her so much? What exactly has she done that has angered so many?

    I think it’s great that she was able to turn her life around, esp since the drug of choice was meth–it is the MOST addicting drug out there!!

    Also I think she looks fabulous for just having had a baby less then 2 months ago. I hope she does have a successful career in her future!

    What you idiots don’t seam to get is she just had a child. Also don’t forget that being on a huge hittv show for ten years made her more money then your parents and you will ever make in your life times. Also she didnt take these pictures like in a my space page other people did and she didnt post these other people paid for them and posted them. Also Wtf you are an idiot why don’t you put a picture of your ugly ass face up here so we can all talk about what a loser you are you freak.

    I agree what’s the deal with all the attacks, DWTS usually feature past celebrities. Ok so the dress is not a nice dress but she’s the one wearing it, some people need to relax
