During a Monday appearance on Dax Shepard’s “The Armchair Expert” podcast, Stamos insisted Loughlin was not the mastermind behind the scandal, which also resulted in jail time for Loughlin’s husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, and actress Felicity Huffman.
“I’ll say this, and she said I could,” Stamos said. “She wasn’t really the architect of it all – she was in the background. She didn’t know what was going on. »
Loughlin pleaded guilty to paying half a million dollars in a scam to get her two daughters into college, but Stamos thought Loughlin deserved some credit for how she made up for her role in the scandal at the over the past two years.
In addition to two months behind bars, Loughlin was sentenced to two years of supervised release, a $150,000 fine, and 100 hours of community service.
“She also paid a lot of money. She set up a university fund for children, and she went to fucking jail, man,” he added.
In October 2021, Loughlin mocked twitterr after she and her husband privately arranged to send two unidentified students to college at an approximate cost of $500,000.
Stamos has shown his support for Loughlin in the past. For example, last month, the two made a TikTok video together and called the initial arrest “a difficult situation for everyone involved”.
Although Loughlin’s career took a hit after the arrest, EW notes that she returned to starring in shows like ”When the heart calls you” ”Garage Sale Mysteries,” and “When hope calls.”
