Lori loughlin on full house

Months after Lori Loughlin was named in a nationwide scheme with dozens of other parents who allegedly fast-tracked their children’s way into college, John Stamos says he’s still wrapping his head around the whole thing.

In a profile published in the September 2019 issue of GQ, the actor opened up about the charges brought against his “Fuller House” co-star, who he says he’s still close with.

“I’ll tell you one thing that has been strange is: Honestly I can’t figure it out,” he told the magazine. “It doesn’t make sense. I talked to her the morning everything hit. I just can’t process it still.”

Loughlin and fellow Hollywood actress Felicity Huffman were among 50 wealthy parents charged back in March in a $25 million college entrance cheating scheme. Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California. In April, they pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit money laundering and fraud.

Stamos, a longtime colleague of Loughlin’s, attempted to tread lightly in terms of drawing conclusions about the case, but did make a comment to GQ in her defense.

“Whatever happened, I’m pretty sure that the punishment is not equal to the crime, if there was a crime.”

As for further speculation, the actor said he wanted to “be careful” with his comments before the case goes to court.

“I want to wait until the trial happens, if it does, or whatever the result is, and then talk about it.”

In June, Stamos told “Entertainment Tonight” that he wasn’t sure how the “Fuller House” writing team would handle Loughlin’s alleged involvement in the scandal. “It’s a difficult situation for everyone involved,” he said. Industry publications reported that Loughlin will not return to the Netflix show.

During respective appearances on TODAY, Loughlin’s other co-stars, Bob Saget and Candace Cameron Bure, presented a united front. “I’ve already said that we are family, and we stand by each other,” Bure said.

Lori Loughlin appears at hearing in college admissions cheating scandal

Aug. 27, 201901:42

Loughlin and Giannulli appeared Tuesday in a federal courtroom in Boston for a hearing related to their charges. Legal experts say Loughlin took a gamble when she turned down a plea deal and could face years behind bars if convicted.

John Stamos Breaks Silence on Lori Loughlin’s College Admissions Scandal: ‘Difficult Situation’

John Stamos has addressed his longtime friend and costar Lori Loughlin‘s alleged involvement in the nationwide college admissions scandal.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Stamos, 55, did not clarify whether a final decision has been made about Loughlin’s involvement in the upcoming season of Fuller House. The Netflix series, a reboot of the original Full House, was picked up for a fifth and final season in January. The series began filming three months after Loughlin, 54, was accused of allegedly paying to have her daughters admitted to college as crew recruits — despite the fact that they do not participate in the sport.

“I haven’t been on the show yet and it hasn’t come up, so I’m going to talk to some people about it this week and see what’s going on,” said Stamos, who is producing the season. “I’m just going to wait a little longer before I talk about it.”

“It’s a difficult situation for everyone involved,” he added. “I don’t mean just on our side.”

According to Stamos, the final season will be split into two parts, with nine episodes each. A premiere date has not yet been announced.

The Hallmark Channel severed ties with the actress after the scandal broke, and The Hollywood Reporter reported in March that Loughlin would not return to Fuller House. (She was not a series regular.) A source also recently told PEOPLE that the star is not working.

Earlier this month, Candace Cameron Bure also said she had no idea what would happen to Loughlin’s character Aunt Becky on the show.

“It hasn’t been discussed,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I have absolutely no answer for it, and Netflix has not even spoken about it, so I have no answer.”

On March 12, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts announced that it had charged 50 people, including Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, in the cheating scandal. Along with coaches, admissions counselors and fellow parents, they were accused of alleged crimes such as falsifying SAT scores and lying about the athletic skills of their children.

Prosecutors alleged that Loughlin and her husband paid $500,000 to admissions consultant William “Rick” Singer and his nonprofit organization, Key Worldwide Foundation (“KWF”), which prosecutors said was actually a front for accepting bribes, to have their 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.” (Neither Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella Rose, 20, were listed on the USC women’s rowing roster.)

Singer has since admitted his role as the ringleader of the scam and has pleaded guilty to multiple charges.

Loughlin and Giannulli were indicted on an additional charge of fraud and money laundering in April. If convicted, they face up to 20 years in prison for each charge.

The couple pleaded not guilty after turning down a plea deal because it included jail time. Their attorneys have not returned PEOPLE’s requests for comment.

A source told PEOPLE earlier this month that the couple is attempting to maintain some sense of normalcy as they await their fate.

“It’s just a strange situation when you are used to working, and all you do instead is focus on court dates and your legal defense,”” the source said. “It’s not the happiest situation.”

The couple’s next court date is set for Oct. 2, and according to another source, the long wait has been excruciating for the actress and her husband.

“People who are not in the legal field often don’t understand how long these things take,” the source said. “Lori and Mossimo are seeing firsthand that court cases move slowly.”

“They’re having to come to terms with the fact that this isn’t going away anytime soon,” added the source. “This will be over their heads all summer long, and it could still be pending during the holidays. At this point, they have to get used to the new normal.”

Lori Loughlin to be arraigned in college admissions scandal

Former DOJ prosecutor James Trusty weighs in on the latest updates in the college admissions scandal.

John Stamos took to Instagram to mark the final taping of Netflix’s “Fuller House” with a series of images of the cast, including embattled former cast member, Lori Loughlin.

The show, a reboot of the hit 90s sitcom “Full House,” wrapped its fifth and final season, prompting the 56-year-old star to post his thoughts about the series’ legacy and end.

“The end of an era … again. Last night was final taping of @FullerHouse. When every single network and streamer said no to a Full House reboot, (and I mean ALL of them) @netflix said yes!” he wrote. “And they were kind enough to let us play for five seasons! That’s a a lot of seasons for a Netflix show now a days, but not nearly enough for us.”

LORI LOUGHLIN ‘CONCERNED’ BY HEFTY SENTENCE FOR PARENT WHO PLED GUILTY IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

He continued: “I am especially grateful to the cast and crew for keeping the legacy alive and adding so much love to it. Whether you are new to the Full/Fuller House universe or you’ve been with us since the beginning, I can’t thank you enough for keeping the franchise alive, the characters alive, but most importantly, the love alive between all of us that shines out to all of you.”

Stamos’ post contained a series of 10 images from behind the scenes of the show, including shots of the returning cast members who starred on the original run. This includes Loughlin, who was cut from “Fuller House” as well as Hallmark’s “When Calls the Heart” after details emerged about her involvement in the ongoing college admissions scandal.

Loughlin, 55, and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli, 56, are accused of arranging a total collective payment of $500,000 to William “Rick” Singer to get their daughters recruited to USC as athletes on the crew team, despite never having participated in the sport.

The Justice Department announced in October that the duo, along with nine other parents, were indicted on additional federal charges related to bribery. A grand jury in Boston indicted the parents on charges of trying to bribe officials at an organization that receives at least $10,000 in federal funding.

The charge of conspiracy to commit federal program bribery carries a maximum sentence of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. The couple was previously hit with charges of money laundering and conspiracy that could land them behind bars for 40 years if convicted on all of them. Prosecutors are pressuring those who have pleaded not guilty in the college admissions scandal to acknowledge their guilt.

It’s been almost six months since Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were charged with conspiracy to commit fraud and money laundering in the college admissions scandal, but John Stamos still can’t wrap his head around the whole thing.

While speaking to GQ, the actor finally broke his silence and spoke openly about his close relationship with Loughlin and how he’s currently handling everything that’s going on. This is the statement that Full House fans have been waiting for.

“Honestly I can’t figure it out. It doesn’t make sense,” Stamos, who has remained close with the When Calls the Heart star, said. He revealed that he spoke to his former on-screen wife “the morning everything hit.”

“I just can’t process it still,” he said, adding that he doesn’t feel comfortable speaking too openly about his feelings just yet. “I want to wait until the trial happens, if it does, or whatever the result is, and then talk about it.”

Today the 55-year-old mother of two, who has plead not guilty to all charges and turned down a plea deal because it included jail time, is facing up to 40 years in prison—something that Stamos says is too severe of a punishment.

“Whatever happened,” Stamos concluded, “I’m pretty sure that the punishment is not equal to the crime, if there was a crime.”

Actor and Full House costar Bob Saget was also reluctant to speak candidly about the scandal when questioned on the Today show back in April. “I will say that I love her, and I will say…no comment.”

After news broke that Loughlin allegedly paid $500,000 in bribes to have her two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, admitted into University of Southern California as members of the crew team, the actress was dropped from the fifth and final season of Fuller House. She was also dropped by The Hallmark Channel, where she starred in When Calls the Heart.

Operation Varsity Blues is the largest college admissions scandal ever prosecuted in the U.S., according to The New York Times.

Everywhere you look — there’s talk about Full House’s Becky and Uncle Jesse! During an interview with Yahoo’s Daily Shot, Lori Loughlin explained that timing was the main reason why she never dated her onscreen husband John Stamos back in the day. Watch the Full House gang’s hilarious reunion.

“I was married at the time I was doing the show to my first husband,” Loughlin, 49, told host Ali Wentworth on Tuesday, March 18. “Literally when I was getting divorced, he met Rebecca .”

Indeed, Loughlin tied the knot with her first husband, Michael Burns, in 1989, just two years after the family series premiered. (The two later divorced in 1996.) Stamos, meanwhile, married model Romijn in 1998, but they split seven years later.

Since the Danny Tanner years, Loughlin remarried and has been with husband designer Mossimo Giannulli for nearly 17 years. But even though she’s taken, the actress still has a close relationship with 50-year-old Stamos, along with the rest of the early ’90s cast. Back in June 2013, Stamos even admitted that Loughlin was “the one that got away” during an interview with HuffPost Live.

“That was very nice of him to say that,” Loughlin gushed to Wentworth. When further asked who was the “hottest” in the Full House crew, Loughlin didn’t hesitate. “John,” she quipped.

After getting caught up in the college admissions scandal, Lori Loughlin has plenty on her plate. But among the chaos — which caused her to miss the Fuller House wrap party — she’s reportedly still missing her cast mates and is mourning the show’s recent cancellation.

“The cancellation of the show felt like another blow but she just couldn’t take part in anything to do with her TV family right now,” an anonymous source told ET about the cast’s party. “The cast is so compassionate towards Lori and feel terrible for her. They felt their final wrap party was not the same without her.”

Loughlin’s co-star Candace Cameron Bure took to Instagram to share some footage from the wrap party where Bure along with Andrea Barber and Jodie Sweetin sang the show’s theme song together.

A post shared by Candace Cameron Bure (@candacecbure) on Nov 17, 2019 at 1:46am PST

Earlier this year, CNN reported that Loughlin, along with her husband Mosssimo Giannuli, pleaded not guilty to charges of paying $500,000 in bribes to have their two daughters, Olivia, 19, and Bella, 20, admitted to the University of Southern California. Loughlin and Giannuli allegedly had William Singer — the mastermind of the scandal — bribe USC athletics staff into presenting the girls as potential crew team recruits to the college admissions office, despite neither one having ever participated in the sport.

Despite the serious legal charges, Loughlin’s cast mates have been incredibly supportive of her. When asked about Loughlin earlier this year, fellow Fuller House star Bure insisted that “we stand by each other” and “we’ll always be there for each other.” And during an interview with Fox News back in October, Bob Saget said he had no intentions of cutting Loughlin out of his life. “What I would say is, I love the people I love, and I have empathy for people that are in my life for 35 years. I don’t cut people out,” he said.

Just this month, John Stamos posted a heartfelt message about the show coming to an end on his Instagram, and included plenty of photos with his on-screen wife.

Why Is Lori Loughlin Selling Her $28 Million Home?

From Full House to new house? Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have put their lavish Bel Air mansion up for sale, TMZ reports. The actress and fashion designer are facing federal prison time stemming from their alleged involvement in the college admissions scandal. But sources tell TMZ that the planned move has nothing to do with the couple’s legal problems.

Lori Loughlin’s home is listed for $28 million

Loughlin and Giannulli have quietly listed their 12,000-square-foot, 6-bedroom home for $28.65 million. According to Entertainment Tonight, Arvin Haddad of The Agency is handling the listing, though it’s not on the market to the public.

The couple tried to sell the home a few years ago for $35 million, but couldn’t find a buyer. Now, they’re more motivated to unload the property — and are apparently willing to negotiate on price.

“Yes, they are quietly trying to sell their Bel Air home and asking $28 million. It’s currently not on the MLS and will only be shown to qualified buyers,” a source told E! News. “They are willing to take a lower price than what they asked a few years ago because they are serious about selling.”

The sale doesn’t have anything to do with the college admissions scandal

Both Loughlin and Giannulli have been charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, money laundering, and bribery in the Operation Varsity Blues case. Prosecutors say that they paid $500,000 to ensure that their two daughters were admitted to the University of Southern California as crew recruits, even though neither girl played the sport.

A number of parents involved in the case, have pleaded guilty, including actress Felicity Huffman. Loughlin and Giannulli have pleaded not guilty. But the sale of their multi-million dollar home doesn’t have anything to do with the case against them. Sources told several news outlets that the couple has a habit of buying, renovating and selling homes. Giannulli in particular loves updating houses, and it sounds like their plan was always to sell the home.

“He has been doing this as a passion project for years,” an insider told E! News.

With their two daughters now adults, Loughlin and Giannulli are looking for a place that fits with the next phase of their life.

“They moved to the home when their daughters were in high school and it was very convenient,” the source told E! News. “It’s time to move on from this chapter and to find their next project.”

Loughlin may go to trial in October 2020

Fifteen parents, including Loughlin and Giannulli, are still fighting charges against them in the admissions scandal case. Those individuals may be tried in groups, rather than all at once, according to a report in USA Today. Loughlin and Giannulli would likely be in the first group to face a judge. The first trial would take place in October 2020. Prosecutors say they expect more parents will plead guilty in the intervening months.

Remember that episode of Full House when Uncle Jesse falsified info to get Nicky and Alex into a prestigious preschool? Aunt Becky should’ve know better after all of that.

— Creepy Kimmy ????‍♀️ (@KreepyKimmy) March 12, 2019

In an episode entitled “Be True to Your Preschool,” Jesse (John Stamos) wants to get he and Becky’s (Loughlin) sons Nicky and Alex into an elite preschool. Jesse thinks that entrance into this school will put them on a “fast track” and he is willing to go to great lengths to get their sons into the school – even falsifying documents to make their toddler sons seem more appealing on paper.

When Becky catches wind of this, she talks him down.

“I know you want what’s best for them, but you know what?” she says. “Maybe the fast track isn’t it. I mean, Nicky and Alex are normal and healthy kids, and whatever track they’re on, they seem to be doing OK.”

Although the twins ultimately get into the preschool based on false accomplishments, Becky and Jesse decide they should not attend. The episode concludes with the family eating ice cream.

Things went a little differently in real life, though.

Both Loughlin and Giannulli were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud on Tuesday.
