Bad Time For Stamos’ Legal Woes
Celebrity DUI’s are always bad, but this comes at a really bad time for Stamos. John recently announced the revival of “Full House” via a sequel series titled “Fuller House,” which stars Candace Cameron-Bure as DJ Tanner-Fuller, a pregnant veternarian who has two sons and is recently widowed.
Every former “Full House” cast member with the exception of Mary Kate and Ashley Olson. Has this tainted Uncle Jesse/John Stamos, or will fans be able to get over the fact that he was arrested for DUI because he’s such a likable and beloved actor?
