They’ve got each other’s backs! Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin were on TODAY with Kathie Lee and Hoda on April 2, and played a game called “TV Duo Showdown” against the hosts and took on Kirk Cameron and Tracey Gold of Growing Pains as well. During their visit, Candace spoke of the college admissions scandal and the allegations against fellow Fuller House star Lori Loughlin.
“It’s too personal to us and we would never want to talk about someone that’s such a dear and close friend,” Candace, 42, explained. We can understand that; she has been working with Lori, 54, since her days as a child actor on Full House, after all.
Candace continued, “I’ve already said that we are family and we stand by each other and pray for each other and we’ll always be there for each other.” That seems pretty in line with what other Fuller House cast members have expressed since the scandal broke. When Candace, Jodie and Andrea Barber joined other cast members from the series onstage to accept their award for Favorite Funny TV Show at the 2019 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards on March 23, they seemingly showed solidarity with Loughlin then as well.
“You’ve been laughing alongside our family for four seasons. And this family has a lot of heart,” Andrew, 42, said. Candace added, “And where there’s a lot of heart, there’s a lot of love. 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.”
Lori was indicted on March 12 on charges related to a nationwide college admissions cheating scam. She and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling 500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters [20-year-old daughter Isabella and 19-year-old daughter Olivia] designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.” Lori is due to appear in court on April 3.
