Full House’s Jodie Sweetin got married again; probably not on drugs

Everyone’s favorite former meth addict, Jodie Sweetin, (aka Stephanie Tanner from “Full House”) got married in Las Vegas this past Saturday. According to Norm Clarke of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Sweetin walked down the aisle for the second time at the famed Little Church of the West.

Jodie Sweetin, who played Stephanie in “Full House” during the sitcom’s eight-year run, got married Saturday at the Little Church of the West. Sweetin, who overcame a crystal meth addiction that cost her five teeth, married Cody Herpin, 30, of Los Angeles. Sweetin, 25, joins a long list of celebrities who married at the chapel, best known for the site of where Elvis and Ann Margret exchanged vows during the filming of “Viva Las Vegas.”

Hopefully this marriage will work out better than her last one. Sweetin famously admitted to “Good Morning America” last year that she had developed a meth problem that cost her, (in addition to the five teeth) her marriage to her police officer husband. Sweetin claimed that after “Full House” ended, she felt a sense of loss and didn’t know what to do with herself. She tried to be normal by going to a regular high school and college, and ended up married at age 20. She quickly became bored with her life and wasn’t getting any acting jobs, and ended up experimenting with drugs and getting addicted to meth. Sweetin went on a major three-day bender, after which her friends and family (and former Full House costars including the Olsen twins, Bob Saget and John Stamos) staged an intervention. She then attended Promises (way before Britney and Lindsay made it trendy) for a six week treatment.

It seemed like she was doing a decent job of getting her act back together. Naively, at the time I wondered why she went on “Good Morning America” to announce her addiction when she’d fallen under the radar – it wasn’t like the paparazzi were stalking her or she’d gotten arrested by the cops. Then I realized it was a good story and got her back into the news, which is what she needed if she wanted to resurrect her acting career, as she claimed. Currently the gigs aren’t coming in droves, though she is the host of the prestigious “Pants off Dance off” where contestants strip down to their unmentionables while dancing to music. I smell an Emmy coming that show’s way! No wait, that’s not what I smell.

I remember seeing pictures from Jodie’s 2002 wedding, and it was the most traditional looking event I’d ever seen, complete with the poofiest veil worn since 1989. Candace Cameron was her maid of honor, and Candace’s daughter was her flower girl. It was one of those weddings that makes you think, “Hey, this girl won’t be shooting meth anytime soon.” But I guess that’s part of my naiveté. Let’s hope this works out better.
