John Stamos is reflecting on his first marriage to Rebecca Romijin, saying that he may have made some serious mistakes in that relationship.
“In my mind back then, she was the Devil, and I just hated her. I couldn’t believe how much I hated her, and it ruined my life. Looking back, and I talk about it [in the book], because it’s one of the steps in AA where the fourth step is you lay out all your grievances, everything that people did to you. I go like, ‘None.'”
Upon reflection, he now believes Romijin was “was trying to make it work because she cared”.
Stamos said soon after, he fell into destructive patterns.
“That’s when I really started to kind of drink a lot, but without that, I never would’ve known what a real love is, and I would’ve never straightened up to get someone like Caitlin [his current wife] in my life.”
