Since news of the college admissions scandal broke, John Stamos has been tight-lipped on "Fuller House" co-star Lori Loughlin's involvement, but now he has broken his silence.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the 55-year-actor who plays Uncle Jesse Katsopolis, spoke about his on-screen wife's exit from the "Full House" spinoff series.

"It's a difficult situation for everyone involved. I don't mean just on our side," he said.

Stamos did not elaborate, but hinted that he would have more to say after discussing it further with other cast members and directors of the show.

Loughlin and fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded not guilty to accusations of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters into the University of Southern California as crew team recruits, even though neither of them played the sport. The star was subsequently axed from the long-running drama series "When Calls the Heart" on the Hallmark Channel.

"We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations," Hallmark said in a statement, according to Vulture. "We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions."

Shortly after her firing reports emerged that Loughlin would not be returning to the fifth and final season of "Fuller House." Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that there were no plans for the implicated actress to return to the show and that her legal issues would not impact production.
