I’ve always heard rumors that John Stamos was a sexaholic and would hold two day swinger parties in the Chateau Marmont and his freaky side was what eventually led to the demise of his marriage with Rebecca Romijn. When I saw today that he was the victim of an extortion scandal over some photos I was like “Damn! We’re finally gonna get to see some Uncle Jesse dick!” My eight year old self who was in love with him wouldn’t even understand what that means. Turns out though that the pictures are actually nothing, just a fan posing with him on vacation.
“John Stamos was the target of an extortion attempt,” says Matt Polk, a rep for the actor, who is currently starring inBye Bye Birdie on Broadway. “The U.S. Attorney and the FBI handled the investigation swiftly and with great expertise.”
Stamos, 46, described only as “Mr. X” in a Dec. 3 FBI affidavit, was vacationing in Florida in 2004 when he met Coss. At the time, the pair and another friend attended a party where photos were allegedly snapped of the actor.
It remains unclear if the party occurred before or after Stamos and actress Rebecca Romijn announced their split that year.
So maybe what this Alison person had going for her was the allegation of a marriage-ending affair. Geez, I wonder where she got the idea that that might be lucrative?
Remember this? God it’s so good. One of my favorite instances of a controlled substance crash and burn by a celebrity. It’s got everything– slurred speech, nonsensical rambling, improper comments about the size of another man’s penis… sort of like some of the comments on this site.
I haven’t seen this video in two years– since June 2007 when Stamos visited Australian talk show Mornings with Kerri-Anne and everyone speculated that he was drunk, high, or both. Warner Bros quickly crawled all over itself to tell everyone that he was just jet-lagged and had a bad reaction to some sleeping pills. Anyone who’s ever ingested anything with a proof percentage printed on the label thought, “Yeah, right.”
“I’ll be honest: When I went on that morning show, I was drunk. Yes, I was on sleeping pills and I was jet-lagged, but I was also just plastered. And I never said I wasn’t, but that whole Warner Bros. publicity machine got involved and said, ‘Just say he was jet-lagged. I said, ‘No, tell ‘em the truth! I was fucking drunk in Australia. Big deal.’”
I don’t really care that someone famous went on a talk show drunk off his ass. Granted, if you show up drunk to work, you might have a problem. But to be fair, although it might have been 8AM in Australia, thanks to jet-lag John Stamos’ body clock was set to party time. (It’s always Stamos O’Clock somewhere.)
I just enjoy the fact that he finally came out to confirm how full of shit the studio is. And I really enjoy watching the aftermath on Youtube.
IT was a “Full House” reunion at the Bowery Hotel’s Lobby Bar Wednesday night, when the Olsen twins, Ashley and Mary-Kate, rolled in with their TV dad, Bob Saget, and their “Uncle Jesse,” John Stamos, to drink and party till the wee hours. Ashley drank red wine and whined, “I’m hungry, I want bolognese” – until hotel staff brought her spaghetti bolognese, even though they said they had a strict policy against serving food to nonguests. Mary-Kate chatted up Stamos and watched her sis chow down.
OMG OMG OMG.
How amazing would it be if MK and John Stamos hooked up???
Sometimes I really feel like I’d sell my soul for such things to happen.
John Stamos arrived bleary-eyed, sock-less, stumbling and inarticulate at an Australian press call, where he was expected to plug his appearance in the upcoming season of ER. Stamos blamed his difficulty speaking on having too many cups of coffee, and his appearance on jet-lag. “I came from Greece, Cairo and Japan … and for whatever reason I am so jet-lagged here,” he said. This seems odd, considering he’s been in Sydney since Thursday.
When you put all these signs together, you have to ask the question: Are they seriously still filming new episodes of ER?
