Candace Cameron Bure spoke out this week to reveal if she still talks to her former “Full House” and “Fuller House” costar Lori Loughlin in the wake of the college admissions scandal.
“Yes, I’ve talked to Lori [Loughlin] many times. And she’s doing well,” Cameron Bure said while appearing on “Daily Beast Live” on Tuesday.
Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli pled guilty last year to charges related to them allegedly paying $500,000 in bribe money to have their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before. Loughlin served two months in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal, and she was released at the end of December. Her husband served five months behind bars and was released at the end of April.
Back in November, Bure took to Instagram to share a note that was seemingly sent to her by Loughlin after “Fuller House” came to an end.
“Dearest Candace, Congratulations on a great run! Have a fabulous last week. I love you and miss you,” the note read.
Cameron Bure later told Entertainment Tonight that the note was indeed from Loughlin and that “she sent me flowers and I believe a few other people some flowers.”
“It was so nice to feel and have her presence there at the show. … Yeah, it was really special,” she said at the time.
Yahoo News reported that back in December, Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli defended her parents as “good people.”
“I’m not trying to victimize myself,” she said. “I don’t want pity, I don’t deserve pity. We messed up.”
“I think that what hasn’t been super public is that there is no justifying or excusing what happened because what happened is wrong. I think every single person in my family can be like, ‘That was messed up. That was a big mistake,'” Olivia Jade added. “But I think what’s so important to me is to learn from the mistake, not to now be shamed and punished and never be given a second chance. I’m 21, I feel like I deserve a second chance to redeem myself, to show I’ve grown.”
