Have mercy! In 1992, Stamos and Full House costars Bob Saget and Dave Coulier were chastised by producers for talking about sex and dropping dirty language in front of their young costars Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen and Jodie Sweetin, Star reported.

Forever your girl— or not! Stamos was super serious with pop star Abdul in 1989, but he ended the relationship the following year, Star reported. "Paula was discussing wedding plans with pals" before she was unceremoniously "dumped" by the sitcom hunk, sources said.

Wild night gone wrong? Stamos sued party girl Alison Coss for extortion after he claimed she extorted him for $680,000 by taunting him with alleged photos of the actor with cocaine and strippers. The actor confessed to meeting Coss at an Orlando, Florida, club back in 2004, but denied having had a sexual relationship with the then 17-year-old high school student. In 2010, Coss and a co-conspirator were convicted of the crime and sentenced to five years in prison.
