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.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
