How Rude: A Brief History of ‘Full House’ Beef
Full (and Fuller) House’s Jodie Sweetin ran to People last week to air gripes about her new movie, Craft Me A Romance. Sweetin, an out-loud advocate of the LGBTQ+ community, was none-too-happy that her film was sold to the Great American Family channel, a network known for its promise to “keep traditional marriage at the core.”
That “traditional marriage” vow comes from Sweetin’s sitcom sister, Candace Cameron Bure, who also happens to be the network’s chief creative officer. Last year, she told the Wall Street Journal that “we will likely see no romances involving same-sex couples in (Great American Family) programming.” Oh, Mylanta.
Sweetin is peeved about this latest guilt by association. “Sometimes, we, as actors, don’t have control over which network buys the projects we are in, nor are we a part of the process in which they get sold,” she told People. “So I was very surprised to learn by reading about it in the press yesterday that the independent film I worked on over a year ago was sold to Great American Family.”
“I am disappointed, but in keeping with my mission of supporting the LGBTQ+ family, any potential or future money made from this sale will be donated to LGBTQ+ organizations.“
This isn’t the first time Sweetin has beefed with Cameron Bure. Sweetin publicly supported pop star JoJo Siwa after she denounced Cameron Bure as “the rudest celebrity.”
Cameron Bure retaliated as big sitcom sisters do, unfollowing Sweetin on Instagram.
Uncle Jesse, aka John Stamos, was reportedly bummed about the rift. “John has always wanted everything to be perfect for his TV family,” a Stamos friend told Radar Online. “He’s devastated it’s turned upside-down.”
But Stamos himself had some beef with Sweetin, too, according to a Hot Ones interview he gave last month to promote his upcoming memoir, If You Would Have Told Me.
“Full House, I hated that show,” he confessed. “Obviously, I ended up loving it, but it was sort of pitched to me as a Bossom Buddies with kids on the corner. … We did a table read of it and I was a star coming out of General Hospital, and we sit down and we started reading and Jodie Sweetin, who plays Stephanie, reads her lines and people are dying laughing. I mean screaming, I was like, ‘What’s happening here,’ and she was getting comments like ‘home run.’ They couldn’t even read my lines they were laughing so hard, and I'm slinking in my seat. I run out to the lobby at the Century Plaza Hotel and told ‘get me the fuck off this show’ to my agent.”
Stamos was also steamed at the Olsen twins for refusing to appear in the Full House reboot. “They didn’t want to come back, and I was angry for a minute,” Stamos said on the And That's What You REALLY Missed podcast. Mary-Kate and Ashley made peace by showing up at Stamos’ house bearing meat gifts. "(They) brought a pork chop and sage. I don’t know why, but thank you? It was a frozen pork chop, so that was really nice."
At least Stamos didn’t unfollow any of the kids on Insta.
