John Stamos on Lori Loughlin’s Bribery Charges: ‘It's a Difficult Situation’
John Stamos opened up on Lori Loughlin's bribery charges calling it “A difficult situation,” amid other revelations.
Speaking with "Entertainment Tonight," Stamos, who produces “Fuller House” said that he is still trying to find a way to end his on-screen wife’s storyline, adding that he has not been available.
The actor described the situation Loughlin's bribery charges created as a “Difficult” one for those involved, intimating that it did not affect only the actress. Stamos also revealed that the fifth and final season of “Fuller House” will air in two parts of eight episodes respectively.
The 55-year-old actor equally told the news outlet that he is considering a prequel to “Full House.” The actor who plays “Uncle Jesse” said he is interested in exploring the time before the beginning of the series, adding that the fans are still very much interested in the show.
However, Loughlin who no longer stars in the Netflix show will also not have anything to do with the prequel, if and when it happens.
The actress got indicted in March with her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, and fifty other people on college bribery scandals.
The celebrity couple allegedly paid $500,000 to a college admissions consultant, William “Rick” Singer to get their daughters into USC. In May, the couple pleaded not guilty and are currently awaiting trial.
According to "People," Loughlin who presently is without a job is stressed out by the situation. The actress and Gianulli rejected a plea deal from the federal prosecutors because it came with a reduced jail sentence, and although it has put a strain on their marriage, the parents-of-two are determined to get through it as a team.
Also, the news outlet added that Loughlin is focused on preparing her defence, and she is confident that when all the evidence comes to light, she’ll be found not guilty.
However, if the actress is convicted and gets the maximum 20 years prison sentence, then she’ll need the advice Abby Lee Miller of “Dance Moms” freely dished out.
Miller, who served a short sentence for felony bankruptcy fraud said during an appearance on "E! News: Daily Pop” that Loughlin should not be afraid as inmates would love her for her celebrity status and for being “Aunt Becky” on “Full House.”
