Dustin Diamond

Dustin Diamond, the man who once played Screech in Saved by the Bell, has lost a lot more than he gained during his acting career. In 2006, a scandalous sex tape was released. But then, this year, Diamond was given four months in jail for stabbing a man in a bar fight.

Jodie Sweetin

Jodie Sweetin, who was just five-years-old when she starred in the sitcom Valerie, was known for a role in Full House as Stephanie Tanner. Sweetin struggled with alcohol during her teenage years, then ecstasy and cocaine afterwards. She spiraled further downward after driving while intoxicated with her infant daughter in the vehicle.
