- Lori Loughlin is facing charges after her alleged involvement in a massive college scandal.
- Her Hallmark co-stars have remained quiet about supporting Lori following the reports.
- Candace Cameron Bure has appeared to make some statements about Lori in the past weeks, and is now clearly speaking out about Lori's involvement in "Operation Varsity Blues."
A quick recap: Lori and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are reportedly facing a felony charge of conspiracy to commit mail and honest services mail fraud, all in order to get their two daughters, Bella, 20, and Olivia, 19, into the University of Southern California. Following the news, Lori was dropped from Hallmark and the network’s hit show, When Calls the Heart, and there are whispers she won't return to Fuller House, either.
Lori’s WCTH cast mates haven’t spoken up in support of Lori (though stars like Pasacle Hutton have provided some updates on the series), but Candace has been pretty vocal about having Lori’s back. First, she posted a cryptic Instagram about mercy. Then, she gave a passionate speech at the Kids’ Choice Awards about “family,” which seemingly was meant for Lori.
Now, she’s making it pretty clear how she feels about the drama. She and Fuller House co-star Jodie Sweetin appeared on the show, where they were asked their thoughts on the matter.
“You know, it’s too personal to us and we would never want to talk about someone that’s such a dear and close friend,” Candace said. “I’ve already said that we are family and stand by each other and pray for each other and will always be there for each other." Jodie didn’t have much to add, she simply shook her head in agreement.
Considering all three women are staples of Hallmark’s popular Christmas movies, and work together on the Netflix comedy, it appears they’ll remain tight (and tight-lipped when it comes to their opinions) with Lori in the future.
