Dax Shephard Admitted On His Podcast He "Hates" When Lori Loughlin's Name Comes Up

Dax Shepard’s no stranger to rubbing elbows with celebrities, but the podcast host just admitted he hates bringing up a certain Full House alum.

On September 26, the actor’s podcast Armchair Expert featured former iCarly actress Jennette McCurdy as she talked about her memoir. Following the interview — around the 1:17 timestamp — the co-hosts randomly mentioned the clothing brand Mossimo, which led Dax to associate the conversation with the designer (Mossimo Giannulli)’s wife Lori Loughlin.

He seemed ready to skip over the When Calls the Heart actress. But, one co-host confused the designer’s marital status with another Full House star Ashley Olsen, which prompted a chorus of “no’s” from the co-hosts as Dax jumped in. “No, [it’s] Aunt Becky, who I worked with, and I love her,” he said on the podcast. “And I hate when we talk about her, Lori Loughlin.”

The Punk’d star added: “I hate when her name comes up ’cause I’m supposed to say, ‘Naughty her. Shame on her for this school scandal.’ But, I worked with her, and I really liked her a lot.”

“Can’t you say both?” a co-host chimed in. “Well, I just did!” Dax responded. “More than she was nice, I like her. Right?” Though the conversation lasted less than a minute, listeners easily picked up on the reference to Lori’s notable past in the press for a 2019 college admissions scandal that involved her daughter Olivia Jade.

The outcome involved a tumultuous time for the star as she and her husband spent time in federal prison. It effectively ended her time on the Hallmark Channel as the network cut all ties with Lori and subsequently brought to a halt her starring role on When Calls the Heart. Since, however, she’s returned onscreen, including her debut on When Hope Calls with the GAC Family network, a Hallmark competitor.

What’s more, it seems like Dax isn’t the only one to show support — Full House co-star John Stamos recently performed with The Beach Boys as the former Hallmark actress, or “old friend” as John referenced her, joined onstage. The pair danced alongside one another, and the actor even took to Instagram to share the moment.

Though Dax and Lori haven’t appeared in any public photos together nor have spoken about each other in the press, the Armchair Expert host’s fondness toward the actress stretches back years. If you’re wondering where their friendship started, the two worked with each other on the set of the 2009 film Old Dogs, starring John Travolta and Robin Williams. While both played supporting roles, it seemingly was enough to kindle a decades-long connection.

Perhaps we’ll see more of these two in the near future!
