With Aunt Becky spending a lot of time indoors as she prepares a not-guilty defense for her alleged involvement in the college admissions scandal, Uncle Jesse wants us to know that, yes, he’s still got her back, family-sitcom setting or otherwise. In a new interview with GQ, the man officially known as John Stamos was asked about Lori Loughlin’s collegiate controversy, and he said they’re still very close friends. “I gotta be careful. I want to wait until the trial happens, if it does, or whatever the result is, and then talk about it,” Stamos explained. “And I’ll tell you one thing that has been strange is: Honestly I can’t figure it out. It doesn’t make sense. I talked to her the morning everything hit. I just can’t process it still. Whatever happened, I’m pretty sure that the punishment is not equal to the crime, if there was a crime.” Always a gentleman, that guy.
