It seems like the college admissions scandal story is all anybody can talk about — and as more and more info about it is coming to light, those who know the two actresses allegedly involved in the scam, Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, are beginning to weigh in on the matter.

First, Loughlin's friend, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kyle Richards called the events "really shocking" on WWHL, adding, "Everyone's talking about it today in our world, in our circle." (She went into further detail on it in the clip above.)

Now, Loughlin's one-time Full House co-star John Stamos has been asked about the scandal while out and about. He was caught leaving a restaurant in Los Angeles by TMZ and didn't seem like he wanted to chat much about the case, simply telling the outlet, "No comment."

Fellow Full House co-star Jodie Sweeten was equally tight-lipped about the scandal when TMZ caught her at the airport. For her part, Huffman has received support from longtime pal, playwright David Mamet, in the wake of the controversy.

(Quick recap: The college admissions scandal dubbed "Operation Varsity Blues" allegedly involved various college admission scams including cheating on college entrance exams by hiring proxies/test administrators to take tests for students and parents paying college athletic coaches to recruit their children for athletic teams, despite their skill level.)

And in an interesting twist, the internet has unearthed an episode of Full House from back in the day in which Stamos' Uncle Jesse lies to a pre-school admissions office to get his twins (whom he parented with Loughlin's Aunt Becky) admitted into school. Becky eventually steps in to end his scam, and according to Refinery 29, tells him: "I know you want what’s best for them, but you know what, maybe the fast track isn’t it. Nicky and Alex are normal and healthy kids, and whatever track they’re on, they seem to be doing OK."
