Jodie Sweetin has a few skeletons in the closet that she won’t be revealing anytime soon to her children.
The former Full House actress struggled with alcohol and meth addiction on and off for more than a decade — instead she wants to focus on the future and let her two daughters, Zoie (3), and Beatrix (8) months, know her for the person she is today.
“[My struggles are] pretty much in the past,” Sweetin told People magazine.
“Hopefully, it’ll never be anything my kids have to be a part of. I wish I hadn’t gone through that, but I did.”
However, if the girls pull up an old tabloid of Jodie’s dirty past, Jodie says that’s when she will sit down and talk about.
“I’ve been really open about what I’ve gone through in general, so if they ask me about it, I’ll be open with them, too,” she says “I don’t think there’s any reason to hide it. It’s nothing I’m ashamed of. But just like with various people my own age, I’m not just going to go out of my way to talk about it with my kids.
“My life is so good that I’m not missing out on anything.
“I finally got to a point in my life where I go to bed at, like, 10:30. To me, a nice night at home is watching American Idol, reading a book and sleeping. Now, I don’t think anything in the world could be better than what I have.
“I think I’m done having kids. If I had more, it would be in a few years from now, but I think I’m good.”
