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.

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? 🙁

Fuller House sounds like you’d find a fuller brush salesman…lol…Full House: The Next Generation would be better with the show focusing on the next generation of Tanners

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.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
