SALT LAKE CITY — Candace Cameron Bure spoke out in support of her “Fuller House” co-star Lori Loughlin on the “Today” show on Tuesday.

Bure, who appeared on “Today” with “Fuller House” co-star Jodie Sweetin, said the cast of “Fuller House” is “family.”

“It’s too personal to us and we would never want to talk about someone that’s such a dear and close friend,” Bure told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. “I’ve already said that we are family and we stand by each other and pray for each other, and we’ll always be there for each other.”

Context: The cast’s comments come as Lori Loughlin, who appeared on “Fuller House” and “When Calls the Heart,” prepares for her court date on Wednesday. Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters could attend the University of Southern California as crew recruits.

Flashback: The cast of “Fuller House” appeared the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards in March where they reportedly spoke out in favor of Loughlin, which I wrote about for the Deseret News.
