Dave Coulier never thought Lori Loughlin would go to jail

You’re wrong, dude.

Dave Coulier never thought his “Full House” co-star Lori Loughlin would end up in federal prison.

“If you had said at the beginning of ‘Full House’, ‘Who’s the only person going to jail?’ Lori was last on the list,” the actor, who played Uncle Joey on the ABC sitcom, told E! News in a recent interview.

Coulier, 62, admitted that Loughlin, 57, had a “weird twist” in her life when she pleaded guilty in the college admissions scandal, but he still has a soft spot for her.

“Lori is my best friend in life,” he said. “We make each other laugh really hard through the hard times and the good times.”

The comedian called the “When Calls the Heart” alum, who played Aunt Becky in “Full House”, a “great human being”.

“There’s a lot of untold story behind it that I don’t think many people know about,” he said of Operation Varsity Blues, adding, “We all make mistakes.”

Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were arrested in March 2019 for paying $500,000 to get their daughters, Bella and Olivia Jade, to the University of Southern California.

The couple, who married in November 1997, initially pleaded not guilty to charges of fraud, but they changed their pleas to guilty in May 2020.

The actress was in jail for just under two months from October to December 2020, while Giannulli, 59, was behind bars from November 2020 to April 2021.

Loughlin has since gone back to work and landed a part in GAC Family’s “When Hope Calls.”
