Jodie Sweetin’s response to Miley Cyrus’ party pic of her is basically ‘how rude’
Jodie Sweetin doesn't appear to have time for Miley Cyrus' antics.
"Fuller House's" Stephanie Tanner, who'll be appearing in the upcoming 22nd season of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," dismissed the shock-pop star's recent Instagram post hearkening back to Sweetin's hard-partying days.
"I don't pay attention to negative stuff," the 34-year-old told E! News on Tuesday. "I have so much good stuff going on in my life right now that I try not to pay attention."
Cyrus' side-by-side images show a younger and scantily-clad Sweetin straddling an unidentified male reveler as she holds a cigarette and arches her back toward the camera. It's the type of image likely harbored by many reformed party girls for nostalgic purposes, but not for social media exposure. Alas, the nipple-baring 23-year-old singer took care of that for Sweetin, posting the snapshot online a few days ago.
"Current Mood #fullerhouse only you freaks take this as shaming! To me it looks like Stephanie is having a ... gay ol time!" the former Disney star wrote.
Sweetin, who is preparing to walk down the aisle for the fourth time, has openly disclosed her struggles with drugs and rehab, penning a 2009 memoir "unSweetined" that delineated her relationship with drugs, including cocaine and meth.
Though it's unclear when the snapshots were taken, many followers shamed Cyrus for bringing up the sitcom star's dark period, which began after "Full House" wrapped its eight-season run in 1995. She started drinking at 14, and by age 25 she was still raking in the dough from "Full House" and spending it on drugs $10,000 at a time, according to a recent interview with Complex.
"I was a selfish, self-serving, insecure, angry and fearful person living a double life. I covered up my problems by pretending to be happy and saying that everything was fine," the mother of two wrote in her memoir, noting that she spent her "Full House" residuals on drugs and partying.
An emergency custody investigation by her second ex-husband, Cody Herpin, finally prompted her to make real changes in late 2008.
"I got sober for good on Dec. 7, 2008. I was flying to L.A. and I ended up taking a bunch of Nyquil and drinking. ... When I got home, I got a call that there was an emergency custody investigation because of my drinking. From that day forward, I threw myself into going to [Alcoholics Anonymous] and avoided people who do blow off their coffee tables."
