Original 'Full House' co-stars Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber make first appearance without Lori Loughlin

More than 30 years after first hitting the Hollywood scene as a unit, original "Full House" actresses Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber made their first cast appearance without longtime co-star Lori Loughlin.

The three women were all smiles this weekend at the Kids' Choice Awards, where they exchanged hugs and cheek kisses in front of paparazzi before excitedly accepting the Favorite Funny TV Show award for the rebooted "Fuller House."

Other cast members were also present, including "Full House" staple Scott Weinger and newcomers Soni Nicole Bringas, Michael Campion and Elias Harger.

While they made no explicit mention of Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky on the original and revamped series, Bure seemingly made a subtle statement of support onstage, saying that the fictional Tanner family "sticks 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.”

She then called the cast a "loving family that also sticks together, also celebrates the really good times.”

Sweetin finished the sentiment, saying, "This is one of those good times. You’ve stuck with us for 30 years and we love you all so much. We promise the fifth and final season is gonna be amazing."

Loughlin will reportedly have no involvement in season 5 of "Fuller House." The decision came amid major fallout from the college admissions scandal that rocked not just southern California, but the whole country.

The actress and her husband, who was also charged with fraud in the ongoing legal proceedings, have hired a high-profile lawyer and their daughters have both withdrawn from USC. Nobody from the family has yet made any public statements.
