Although Loughlin has generally kept a low profile, Bure explained on the May 11 episode of the show that they have been in contact, saying, "Yes, I've talked to Lori many times, and she's doing well."
After serving two months in the federal correctional facility for her involvement in the college admission scandal, Loughlin was released in December. During the controversy, the 56-year-old was fired from the last season of "Fuller House."
Loughlin was known for her role as Aunty Becky, while Bure starred as DJ Tanner in the 1987 sitcom. Throughout the controversy, she had the support of her "Full House" family, especially Bure, who often spoke about publicly being there for her friend.
A source close to the couple revealed that they are looking to have a fresh start and repair their marriage in privacy.
Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli pled guilty to paying a $500,000 bribe to Rick Singer to falsely document their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, as recruits University of Southern California's crew team.
Giannulli also went to prison for five months. He was booked in November and was released in early April after spending most of his sentence in federal prison. He finished the rest in home confinement which ended last month.
The renowned fashion designer was picked up from the Federal Correctional Institution in Lompoc by his daughters and 30-year-old son Gianni. During his time in prison, Giannulli was kept in solitary confinement due to COVID-19.
Now that both Loughlin and Giannulli have completed their sentences, a source close to the couple revealed that they are looking to have a fresh start and repair their marriage in privacy.
The insider shared that the duo wants to purchase a new home in Idaho away from the spotlight of Los Angeles. Previously, the pair ditched their mansion in Bel-Air for a smaller place in the hidden Hills.
