Over the weekend, reports surfaced that John Stamos, who started his career in 1982 on ABC’s General Hospital as Blackie Parrish entered into rehab.

Last month, the 51-year-old star was charged with a DUI and then was briefly hospitalized for an undisclosed medical condition.

According to PEOPLE.com, Stamos checked himself into a residential program for the treatment of substance abuse.  And TMZ.com, reported that Stamos checked into a residential treatment facility on June 24 … 12 days after his DUI event in Beverly Hills.

The actor is quite busy with two big projects about to take-off: John will star in a Netflix revival of his late 80’s ABC sitcom Full House, titled Fuller House, and his new Fox sitcom, Grandfathered is set to premiere this fall.

Share your thoughts on John Stamos entering into rehab below, if you are looking forward to his new projects, and if you were a fan of Port Charles’ Blackie Parrish back in the day?

Takes a usual ‘reality’ check for someone to realize their ingestion of either drugs or alcohol is out of control. Guess in time, he’ll realize the DUI was a good event creating a mindset that was no longer the denial that is often the mindset of an alcoholic or addict.
Hope his rehab. goes well for him and his future life is more balanced with sobriety and stable interactions in all aspect of his life.

-Substance abuse- as defined is a maladaptive pattern of substance use manifested by recurrent and significant adverse consequences related to the repeated use of substances -Substance dependence- is more serious than abuse. This maladaptive pattern of substance use includes such features as increased tolerance for the substance, resulting in the need for ever-greater amounts of the substance to achieve the intended effect It said he entered for substance abuse . Who knows which for sure, not me .. We do know what his problem is, actually. It may be minor or major .. Anyways, I feel sorry for him and… Read more »

While I think Stamos is a great guy and wants to do the right thing, I’m sure it helped that insurance companies probably refused to insure him in his roles in his new projects unless he got help and they received positive reports. He’s lucky, the cops treated him really well too. Hope rehab helps him on the road to recovery.

Sometimes the people who seem to have the most fun in life turn out to have the most problems.

I am glad he is getting the help he needs. Addiction is a big problem in Los Angeles. They always run ads for Cliffside Malibu during Days of Our Lives.

One thing I have to say about that title of the Full House revival. “Fuller” just sounds immature. “More full” sounds more appropriate. What has happened to our diction in America? 🙁

I think it is really good to know he is getting help,everyone has problems.so no need in pointing figures at him. When I was 23 I got hit by a drunk driver,l was pregnant and lost the baby at least he is trying to get help.maybe he will realize all the things and real son why he is drinking and find out there is a happiness out there with out drinking

The Olsen twins absence from the Full House reunion fueled this downward spiral.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
