In a rare sighting since the college admissions scandal news first broke in March, Lori Loughlin has spoken for the first time. On March 30 while leaving a yoga session in Brentwood, California, TMZ approached the Full House star and asked her whether or not she was scared about the possibility of going to jail. Loughlin gave a polite and friendly response without saying too much, especially since she’s currently dealing with a major legal issue.
She told the outlet, “I’m sorry, I can’t talk to you. You can follow me around all day if you want, but I just can’t comment right now. But thank you for your time.”
Prior to Loughlin speaking with TMZ, she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were photographed on Friday, March 29, for the first time since making headlines regarding the college admissions scandal.
Just the other day Loughlin’s friend and former Full House co-star, Bob Saget, briefly commented on her situation, while speaking with TMZ. While leaving a Beverly Hills restaurant with John Stamos, Saget said, “You love who you love in your life. I just love who I love. Candace [Cameron Bure] said it really good at the Kids’ Choice Awards. You love who you love.”
Saget also noted that “life’s complicated” and that he didn’t like discussing the scandal. Stamos also responded by simply stating, “I will [address it] at some point — I’m just not ready to talk about it.”

As for Saget’s comment about Bure at the Kids’ Choice Awards, while accepting the award for favorite funny TV show, along with her Fuller House co-stars, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, Bure seemingly alluded to Loughlin by saying, “And where there’s a lot of heart, there’s a lot of love. And a loving family sticks together no matter what.”
Loughlin, Giannulli and actress Felicity Huffman are among 50 parents accused of paying bribes in order to get their children accepted into elite universities. As for Loughlin and Giannulli, the couple allegedly paid bribes totaling $500,000 to have their two daughters, Olivia Jade, 19, and, Isabella Rose, 20, dubbed as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team to help with their admissions into the university, even though they did not participate in the sport.
As for Huffman, she and her husband, William H. Macy, allegedly paid $15,000 to have their oldest daughter’s SAT scores doctored at a “controlled” testing center to ensure her admission to a university. Unlike Loughlin, Huffman hasn’t commented on the legal matter at this time.
