Candace Cameron Bure Calls Lori Loughlin 'Family' Amid Cheating Scandal
The Fuller House crew has each other’s backs! Candace Cameron Bure appeared on the Today Show Tuesday morning, and while she was there, she addressed the college admissions scandal her co-star Lori Loughlin has become involved in.
"It’s too personal to us and we would never want to talk about someone that’s such a dear and close friend," Bure told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb as she sat next to her Fuller House co-star Jodie Sweetin.
Bure added: "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."
Sweetin smiled in response. This comes after the stars also appeared to support their costar at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in March.
"You have been laughing alongside our family for four seasons and this family has a lot of heart," said Andrea Barber, who plays Kimmy Gibbler.
Bure then 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."
FACING THE MUSIC
Loughlin and fellow star Felicity Huffman will be facing a media circus today (Wednesday) in federal court in Boston. There is a preliminary hearing scheduled at which they will face charges, along with dozens of others swept up in the scandal. The defendants are accused of falsifying entrance exams and athletic records of their children to secure admission to elite schools, including Yale, Georgetown and USC.
Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to raise her daughter’s SAT scores, and Loughlin is accused (along with her husband J. Mossimo Giannulli) of paying $500,000 in bribes to have their two daughters falsely designated USC crew recruits.
