Quotable: Candace Cameron Bure On The Cultural Impact Of DJ Tanner

“Oh I totally enjoy ['Full House']. I don’t cringe at all. It’s funny and I completely embrace it. ‘Full House’ made me part of who I am today. There’s nothing embarrassing about it—maybe just the sweaters and big hair. I’ve had so many people say, ‘I used to want to dress like DJ Tanner.’ Now they look back and it’s a joke. ‘What am I going to be for Halloween? Ooh, DJ Tanner—I’ll wear scrunchie socks and big high bangs.’ I think it’s awesome. And I think pretty soon ‘pulling a DJ Tanner’ will be in the dictionary. I hear it all the time when girls who haven’t eaten all day are about to faint while working out. They ‘pulled a DJ Tanner.’ It’s great. I love it.”

—Candace Cameron Bure, who played DJ Tanner on “Full House” back in the day. After leaving Hollywood, getting hitched to a hockey star, and having three kids, Candace is back on the small screen on the totally underrated show “Make It Or Break It.” I wonder if her brother, Kirk Cameron, ever has anyone tell him they “pulled a Mike Seaver”? Which I imagine would be skipping school to make out with a girl while having Boner Stabone wear a wig and pretend to be him. Ahh, late ’80s television. [NY Post] Keep reading »

The “Full House” Home Is Way Nicer Now That The Tanners Don’t Live There

Not to ruin the small screen for you, but characters on TV don’t actually live in the houses shown on shows. No, those exteriors shots are of homes where real people live. And actually, the homes inside can be even more magical than the sets used for filming, as we learned in the January/February issue of Elle Decor. The home where the Tanners supposedly lived on “Full House” is featured in the issue, and we’d find a way to put up with Stephanie’s incessant “How rude!” exclamations if we could move in. Check out the rest of the Tanners’ former San Francisco three-bedroom Victorian, then compare the current owners’ decor to that of the ’80s show after the jump. [Elle Decor] Keep reading »

Jodie Sweetin Talks Drug Use And Recovery On “Today”


unSweetined, Jodie Sweetin‘s book about her drug addiction and recovery, officially hits bookstores tomorrow, and the former “Full House” star spoke to Matt Lauer on “Today” this morning. As we know from reading an excerpt from the book, Jodie was still using when she began touring the country, warning college students about the dangers of using drugs. The day before she caught a flight to speak to students at Marquette University, she had partied for hours, drinking alcohol and using ecstasy and cocaine. She even bought some coke, which she hid in her makeup compact, on the flight. Keep reading »

Jodie Sweetin’s Book Not So, Uh, Sweet

You can tell a lot about a book by the first sentence. And the first sentence of Jodie Sweetin’s memoir is pretty telling: “F**k it” (only without the astericks). You probably remember Jodie as Stephanie Tanner on “Full House,” the middle sister with blonde hair who had perfected the art of wearing a scrunchie. So when she popped out of obscurity in 2006 and appeared on “Good Morning America” to reveal that she was a recovering coke and meth addict, it was pretty shocking. Turns out, it was only half true—she was an addict, but she was hardly recovered. She had a serious relapse, even as she began touring the country and warning college students about the dangers of drugs. Next Tuesday, Jodie’s memoir Unsweetined comes out, and finally she’s ready to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And it’s pretty gritty. Read an excerpt after the jump.

John Stamos Bringing “Full House” To A Theater Near You

John Stamos is bringing down the house…more like “Full House.” The sitcom’s star is working on a plan to bring Uncle Jesse and the gang back to the big screen for a “Full House” movie, but don’t expect Ashley and Mary-Kate to take turns sucking on a pacifier. Stamos is recasting the show for the film version, which he told The New York Daily News “would probably take place in the early years of the sitcom,” which graced TVs across the country from 1987 to 1995. Stamos hopes James Franco will slick up his hair and take over his role as Uncle Jesse. He’d love for Steve Carell to channel Bob Saget as papa Danny Tanner, and for Tracy Morgan to get goofy as best friend Joey Gladstone. After the jump, some of our suggestions for Stamos and whatever lucky writer gets to pen this script. Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Dave Coulier On When He First Heard Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know”

“I said, ‘Wow, this girl is angry. And then I said, ‘Oh man, I think it’s Alanis.’ … I listened to the song over and over again, and I said, ‘I think I have really hurt this person.’” — Dave Coulier, aka Joey from Full House [People] Keep reading »
