He’s got her back. Bob Saget revealed that he still has a soft spot for his former Full House costar and friend Lori Loughlin — even after she was allegedly involved in the nationwide college admissions scandal.
On Tuesday, April 23, the 62-year-old stopped by the Today show to promote his new film, Benjamin. NBC’s Craig Melvin asked the comedian what he thought about the scheme and if he had spoken to the brunette beauty, 54, during this period of time. “Well, we go by carrier pigeon, but I will say that I love her,” he said. “I will say that no comment and that it is a personal thing. It’s a personal thing because it’s a strange time, and what do you say?”
This isn’t the first time the Pennsylvania native defended Loughlin, either. “You know, I usually don’t do interviews on the street, but, uh, you know, you love who you love in your life,” Bob said when he was asked about the ordeal on March 28. “I just love who I love. Candace [Cameron-Bure] said it really good at the Kids’ Choice Awards — you love who you love. I’m on the team of people that I love, but life’s complicated. I don’t like talking about it.”
The Hollywood A-lister was referring to when Candace seemingly showed support for Loughlin at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards on March 23. “Where there’s a lot of heart, there’s a lot of love,” the 43-year-old said while her Fuller House costars accepted the prize for Favorite Funny TV Show. “And a loving family sticks together no matter what. They stick together through the hard times, they support each other, they encourage one another, they pray for each other and they stand by their side, no matter how tough it gets. And a loving family that sticks together also celebrates the really good times together.”
“So many people are lying these days, maybe they should change the tests in school to ‘false or false,’” the since-deleted tweet read. Later that same day, he tried to explain himself. “So many things I say get misconscrewed [sic],” he wrote. Hmm … taking back your previous comment, then?
Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, 55, were arrested in March after they allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.” The duo was later released from jail on $1 million bond and pleaded not guilty to two charges on April 15.
