John Stamos Checks Into Rehab & We're Not Surprised

Hey, remember last month when John Stamos got arrested for DUI? And he was apparently so incapacitated that the police sent him straight to the hospital? (And we were like ... uh-oh, that doesn't sound good.) Well, the logical next chapter to this familiar tale is already beginning to unfold: John Stamos has reportedly checked into rehab.


According to Us Weekly, Stamos is "seeking treatment for substance abuse issues in a residential program," which is probably a good idea, considering this isn't the first time the Full House star's drinking has gotten him into trouble. (Stamos went on an Australian talk show in 2007 after having a few too many and acted like an idiot.) And here's the thing: Just because the only drunken episodes we know about are the DUI and the talk show disaster, that doesn't mean there haven't been a lot, lot more. Sure, celebs are under the microscope 24/7, but there have to have been at least a few times when Stamos stumbled out of a bar in the wee hours of the morning with his shirt buttons all undone and the unmistakable beginnings of a black eye. I mean, maybe not. But if he's going to rehab? Probably.

This news also explains why Stamos just pulled out as cohost of the 2015 Emmy nominations. He was supposed to announce the nominees with Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black), but an announcement was made on Thursday that he would be replaced by So You Think You Can Dance hostess Cat Deeley. It's a shame that his issues are keeping him from his work, but he definitely deserves to take some time off and get well -- that's the main thing, after all! Let's hope Stamos completes his stint in rehab, unlike some other celebs we can think of (ahem, Scott Disick), so he won't have to be cancel anything else in the near future, like his upcoming Fox sitcom Grandfathered, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, or the Netflix Full House spinoff. 

Best wishes, John! We're rooting for you.
