Jodie Sweetin is declared an unfit mother



Tbdjodiesweetin121808_2 Who knew the saga of Full House alumna Jodie Sweetin would provide such  volume of Juice*? It seems the actress has been barred from seeing her 8-month-old daughter Zoie after taking the kid and running from hubby Codie Herpin not too long ago, TMZ says.

An Orange County, Calif., judge has ruled Sweetin is an unfit mother, citing an incident in which Jodie was driving around town intoxicated with the infant in the car. A doctor took the stand in an emergency custody hearing at Herpin’s request, telling the court that the reformed meth addict and alcoholic had gone back to her sad, sad ways.

"Jodie absolutely has not relapsed into using meth," Sweetin's lawyer, Wilma Presley, told People. "She merely confessed to having several glasses of wine over dinner recently and felt guilty about that. She is currently in a 12-step program and is working hard on her sobriety. She wants to be clean and sober from everything."

Although the doc says he doesn’t believe the child is in immediate danger and despite a 50-50 custody agreement, Sweetin will not be allowed to see her without one of her own parents present, which should be easy because Jodie now lives with her folks. Both Sweetin and Herpin were ordered to take drug tests before their next hearing on Feb. 9, which instills all sorts of confidence, don’t it?
