AceShowbiz - Lori Loughlin is getting support not only from her "Fuller House" co-stars but also from fellow "When Calls the Hearts" star. Following Lori's firing from the Hallmark series, it doesn't seem to stop Paul Greene from showing support for Lori, who was embroiled in the college admission scandal.
Paul recently revealed to Us Weekly at his concert at The Hotel Cafe in Hollywood on Wednesday, May 8, that he had been communicating with the 54-year-old actress through "text messages." The 44-year-old actor detailed, "I send her a few more love hearts [to show her] that I'm thinking about her, and that I'm with her and that I'm her friend."
"She is the most incredible, amazing human being you've ever met in so many ways that it's hard to even place what you've heard," the "Bitten" alum went on saying. "All I know what to do is be loving and a consistent friend no matter what is even accused or found. That's what a friend does. Especially when things get hard is when you need your friends."
"I think there wasn't a single person that wasn't surprised by it," he said of Lori's scandal. "Who she is and what she does as a philanthropist and how much she gives back … I don't want to get into details of my opinion, but my heart goes out to her and my support is always with her."
"When Calls the Heart" let go of Lori and ended the rest of her contracts with the Hallmark Channel after she was indicted for bribing her daughters' ways into the University of Southern California. She and husband Mossimo Giannulli were said to be paying $500,000 to scam mastermind-turned-cooperating witness William "Rick" Singer.
The couple made daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella be accepted into the university by making it like the girls were part of row team recruits, though none of them was coxswain in high school.
Lori and Mossimo rejected a plea agreement for their initial fraud charges, only to be hit with additional charges of conspiracy and commit money laundering. They pleaded not guilty to the additional charges. It was reported that they would use an ignorance defense in court.
