Even though Lori Laughlin wasn’t at the 2019 Kids’ Choice Awards, she wasn’t far from her Fuller House cast members’ thoughts. The trio of Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber took to the stage to accept an award and seemingly voiced their support for their costar — who, like Felicity Huffman, is embroiled in the nationwide college admissions cheating scandal — in the process.
“Thank you for voting Fuller House as your Favorite Funny TV Show,” Andrea began. “You have been laughing alongside our family for four seasons and this family has a lot of heart.”
Candice took over from there, saying: “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 also sticks together, also celebrates the really good times.”
“This is one of those good times,” Jodi concluded. “You’ve stuck with us for 30 years and we love you all so much. We promise the fifth and final season is gonna be amazing.”
Rumor has it Lori won’t be returning for Fuller House‘s farewell season and the Hallmark Channel star’s family has been left “devastated” ever since she and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli have been named in the Department of Justice’s ongoing case. Celebs have been chiming in, too.
The couple allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters [Isabella Rose Giannulli, 20, and Olivia Jade Giannulli, 19] designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”
Given the subtle reference to Lori in their speech, she has the full support of her Fuller House brood.
