Suffice to say, Dave Coulier never expected his "Full House" costar Lori Loughlin to end up with a criminal record.
"If you would have said at the beginning of 'Full House,' who's the one person who's going to end up going to jail, Lori was last on the list," he told E! News recently. "Lori is my best girlfriend in life. We make each other laugh really hard, through the tough times and the fun times."
The comedian knows that "everyone has their opinion" about the "When Calls the Heart" actress, but insisted she's a "wonderful human being" despite her life's "strange turn."
"There's a lot of untold story underneath that I don't think a lot of people know," he said. "We all make mistakes."
Lori and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying $500,000 to get their two daughters — Olivia Jade and Isabella — accepted into the University of Southern California after falsely designating them as crew team recruits. The two eventually struck a plea deal and Lori served two months in prison, whereas her husband served five months in prison.
"You know when it gets down to it, there's so much going on and so many people have gone through so much and you know … if you love somebody then you have to make that, decision and [ask yourself] is this something that causes me not to love a person and I love her," the later comedian told Page Six. "She's a sweetheart."
