Bob Saget addresses Lori Loughlin's college admissions scandal: 'I don't cut people out'

Bob Saget is staying supportive of Lori Loughlin.

The 63-year-old actor was asked about the college admissions scandal in a new interview with Fox News, and he made it clear he was standing by his Fuller House co-star. Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters, 20-year-old Olivia and 21-year-old Bella, admitted to USC as recruits for the crew team, even though neither had ever participated in the sport.

"I love the people I love, and people go through life, and stuff happens,” Saget said. "For a while, I was saying, 'No comment,' and now there's just no point in talking about it because I've answered it. What I would say is, I love the people I love, and I have empathy for people that are in my life for 35 years. I don't cut people out."

"I've never had any friends growing up," he added. "So, I'm lucky to have any in the first place."

In March, Saget had similar comments while talking to paparazzi in Los Angeles.

"I usually don't do interviews on the street, but you love who you love in your life," Saget said as he was leaving lunch with fellow Fuller House star John Stamos. "Candace [Cameron Bure] said it really good at the Kids' Choice Awards. You love who you love."

In April, he was again asked about Loughlin during his appearance on the Today show shortly after she pleaded not guilty to all the charges against her.

"I think I'm underqualified," Saget said.

When asked if he's spoken to Loughlin since the scandal erupted, he joked, "We go by carrier pigeon."

"But, I will say I love her and I will say no comment," he continued. "It's a personal thing because it's a strange time and what do you say?"

A source recently told ET that Loughlin, 55, has been "scared to death" after she and her husband -- along with nine other parents -- received additional charges by a grand jury earlier this month. The new charges in the third superseding indictment allege the parents conspired to commit federal program bribery by bribing employees of the University of Southern California to facilitate their children's admission.

"Lori is worried and has had sleepless nights throughout this nightmare, but she has never felt the fear she has today," the source told ET.
