Calling all ‘Fuller House’ fans! If you thought the first season was epic, then you’re in for a real treat the hit show returns to Netflix! HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY caught up with Lori Loughlin (aka Aunt Becky), and she dished MAJOR show secrets, including which ‘DWTS’ member you can expect to see on season two!
Lori Loughlin, 52, is one of the nicest and most hard working people in business. She is a mom to two already successful children, a seasoned actress, and a passionate charitable worker. Some would call her a jack of all trades, which is true, but we call her a triple threat. She took some time to dish to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about the upcoming season of Fuller House. At the time of the interview, the cast was in mid-season (they have since wrapped), but, Lori revealed that Dancing With The Stars judge, Bruno Tonioli, 60, will make a guest appearance on the show! When we asked about any famous faces we can expect to see, she said, “I want to say Bruno.” She credited her co-star for making it all happen. “I think Candace asked him to come on and do a guest spot.” Any speculation about Bruno was also set aside when a fan account for the show tweeted that he went from a judge to “part of the Fuller House family,” July 24. He replied that he “had a ball.”

Lori spilled detail that New Kids On The Block will make an epic cameo in one of the show’s episodes too! She also admitted who was a complete fan girl when it came to the epic group. “I think that was a really big one for the girls. I mean Candace [Cameron-Bure], and especially Andrea Barber are just huge, huge, New Kids On The block fans,” she said. However, all of the members may not be present for their Fuller House debut. Lori admitted that she unfortunately was not in the scene with NKOTB, but she “didn’t think” Donnie Wahlberg, was either. SO sad. She did tell us an epic story though. When she was filming an episode of Blue Bloods, she said Donnie was on set one day and they came together to surprise Andrea with the cutest birthday present EVER! “I asked him to make a video with me for Andrea Barber for her 40th birthday and he did!,” she told us. “He was so sweet and we sent it to her and she was so excited! He’s a really nice guy.” AW! You can catch Lori on the opener episode of Blue Bloods when it returns to CBS Sept. 23.
Although they’re in the midst of filming the second season, could there already be a third? While nothing has been announced just yet, she did give us some hope! After gushing that it was “fun” to be back after the hit show was renewed, she told us, “It’s doing so well for Netflix I think they’ll have as many seasons as they want actually.” Speaking of fun — Lori even gave us the scoop on how her on-screen love, John Stamos, 53, is liking his time on the Scream Queens set. The hunky star is bringing is good looks to the second season of the hilarious FOX show, and she said that John “loves” it. “He’s having a great time on Scream Queens. He’s really enjoying it.” We had NO doubts!
Aside from her multiple acting projects, Lori is playing double duty between her busy schedule and getting her kids in back-to-school mode. With the new education year starting, she’s teamed up with Emergen-C® and charity: water. While many families are preparing for school, in other parts of the world, there are children who cannot get an education because they lack the access to clean water. Instead of receiving a valuable education, children spend their days walking to collect water. Now, she, Emergen-C® and charity: water are on a quest to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in Ethiopia, so children can get to school. They are doing this through the “Water Transforms Lives” campaign.
They are trying to raise awareness and funds around this global water crisis to build clean water projects in communities. Last week, Lori called on consumers to help by visiting her Instagram page and liking the photo (below). For every like the picture received, Emergen-C® donated fund to charity: water, and $40,000 will go directly to funding sustainable water projects in Ethiopia! This is AMAZING!
Lori, who is a big fan of drinking the brand, is “thrilled” to be partnering up for such a great cause. If you would like any more information on this impactful campaign, visit the official websites of charity: water, and Emergen-C®.
