Words don’t fade away for those involved in the college admission scandal.
The “Fuller House” castmates say they’re a family who “sticks together” just weeks after news broke of co-star Lori Loughlin’s alleged involvement in a college bribery scandal.
Loughlin, who plays Aunt Becky on the Netflix series, was arrested for allegedly paying $500,000 to guarantee her two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, admission to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, though neither was an athlete.
Though the cast did not mention Loughlin by name, they appeared to comment on the matter during their acceptance speech Saturday at the 2019 Kids’ Choice Awards.
“Thank you for voting ‘Fuller House’ as your favorite funny TV show,” Andrea Barber began. “You have been laughing alongside our family for four seasons and this family has a lot of heart.”
“And where there’s a lot of heart, there’s a lot of love. And a loving family sticks together no matter what,” Candace Cameron Bure added. “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 sticks together also celebrates the really good times,” Cameron Bure said.
“And this is one of those good times,” Jodie Sweetin continued. “You’ve stuck with us for 30 years and we love you all so much. … We promise the fifth and final season is going to be amazing.”
Loughlin was ousted from Crown Media, Hallmark’s parent company, earlier this month.
Her fate with Netflix remains uncertain, however. The streaming service has declined to comment on Loughlin’s status on the series, but did note that production for the final season has not begun.
