Lori Loughlin never mentioned as Jimmy Kimmel interviews ‘Full House’ co-star Bob Saget

Jimmy Kimmel chose not to address the legal troubles of “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin during his sit-down with her co-star, Bob Saget, on Tuesday night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Lori appeared on “Full House” with Saget for seven seasons (1987-1995), playing morning show co-host Rebecca Katsopolis or as fans of the show remember her, “Aunt Becky.” They both reprised their roles in the recent Netflix reboot “Fuller House,” which is ending this year. On Tuesday morning, authorities said 50 people including Loughlin and actress Felicity Huffman were tied to what was called the “largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice.” Loughlin, 54, was accused of paying $500,000 to get her daughter accepted at the University of Southern California through the school’s rowing program despite her daughter having never participated in the sport. The appearance by Saget, 62, on Kimmel's show was apparently just a coincidence.
